During our last few days in southern Africa, we popped into the Watershed (one of the 9 must do activities in Cape Town). Watershed is full of artisan booths. Whatever you fancy, there’s an artist or two for you. The ‘pop-up’ that caught my eye most was Mungo & Jemima – a collection of women’s clothing.
I didn’t really know what I wanted, but I loved the vibe of the shop. On our second or third visit to Watershed (no joke!), I finally went in to see what the store had to offer. I pulled a few things off the racks, but this peacock print dress by Coppélia Clothing was too beautiful not to try on.
They gave me a slip to wear underneath (one I ended up taking home). I was blown away with how comfortable, flattering, and beautiful the dress was. I couldn’t resist and bought it to bring home as my souvenir from the trip. It’s been hanging in my office since our return (3 months now). I hadn’t had an occasion to wear it. Until last weekend!
We were heading to a winery in northern California (post coming later this week) and I knew this dress would be the perfect wine tasting outfit (and dinner outfit too)…
In completely unrelated news, I’ve been struggling with ankle/calf pain for the last few months. I’m seeing a physical therapist about it and working through a crazy amount of tightness. My workouts have been cut way back, which I don’t totally mind funny enough. And I’m wearing heels much much less now.
I was worried about these mules even, but I wore them out to dinner and walked a decent amount. I was ready to take them off once we were back to our room, but I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they were even with my sensitivities at the moment. Besides being versatile, chic sandals, these mules are great on comfort too. And I see they’re available in navy now! Why does Vince taunt me so??
