SIMON'S TOWN WITH MY BRAZILIAN FRIEND DANNY

Sorry for the lack of posts during the last 2 weeks, but I was having a well deserved break in Cape Town, which I will be talking about in the next few days. 
This holiday was wonderful as I was visited by friends from California who I met while I lived there in 2011 – 2012 . One of them is my Brazilian friend Danny who is also very stylish and loves fashion like I do.
One day, we went to Simon’s Town located 30 min away from  Cape Town and which is home to the South African Navy. For more than two centuries it has been an important naval base and harbor (first for the Royal Navy and now the South African Navy). I love this place, besides its important part in history, it is also a town with lovely stores with vintage stuff, art, decoration, little galleries, lovely restaurants and boutiques with clothes of new talented South African designers. It was so entertaining to walk along the streets and get all these artistic flavors of creativity.

Perdón por la ausencia en las últimas dos semanas pero estaba teniendo un merecido descanso en Ciudad del Cabo, lugar sobre el cual estaré hablando en los próximos días. 
Estas vacaciones fueron increíbles, tuve la visita de algunos amigos de California a quienes conocí cuando viví allá en 2011- 2012. Uno de ellos es mi amiga brasilera Danny, quién además de tener mucho estilo, disfruta de la moda tanto como yo. 
Un día fuimos a Simon´s Town, ubicado a 30 min de Ciudad del Cabo. Este pequeño pueblo es la casa de la armada Sudafricana y por más de dos siglos ha sido un importante puerto y base naval, inicialmente de la armada real y ahora de la sudafricana. Me encanta este lugar, porque más allá de su importancia histórica, es también un pueblito con tiendas preciosas, pequeñas galerías, buenos restaurantes y boutiques con prendas de talentosos jóvenes diseñadores. Fué muy entretenido caminar por las calles y llenarse de todos estos sabores artísticos de creatividad. 

 Our outfits of that day were relaxed and comfortable for traveling. One of my favorite looks for summer holidays is the combination of: a nice sleeve less top, short, flat flip flops, hat and a big beach bag. And remember that wearing high heels during the day while traveling is not a good idea!

Nuestros atuendos durante ese día fueron relajados y cómodos. Una de mis pintas favoritas para las vacaciones de verano, es la combinación de: Una camiseta sin mangas, shorts, sandalias planas, sombrero y una bolso grande de playa. Recuerden que ponerse tacones altos durante el día para hacer turismo no es muy buena idea! 

Danny's top: Brazilian Brand "Farm" 
My Look
Top: Cotton On 
Shorts: Woolworths
Accessories: YDE
Sun glasses: Lundum 
 After getting so much inspiration and having our minds recharged with the energy of this beautiful town, we ended the day having a picnic with our men on the shores of Chapman’s Peak while watching the sunset.
