Location: Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa
Story: So back to why stay cations are the chillest vacations. Anybody? Allow me – little admin, short distance, no pressure, minimal cost and presents the opportunity to rediscover the beauty right in your backyard. This particular backyard being that of the Western Cape’s famed Whale Coast watching haven – Hermanus. Lush greenery, vivid valleys and deep blue seascapes filled with prolific wineries and dining and a host of recreation and leisure to-do’s for both nature lovers and water enthusiasts. Also – our Air BnB was the picture-perfect base to slowly but surely take it all in.
Look: It’s been all about juxtaposition lately, where we have the power to go monotone or to colour block, to sport a strong shoulder or to give the cold shoulder, to leave or to stay and so on and so forth. For me it’s all about one statement packaged in a minimal aesthetic. This long weekend had lounge wear embossed all over it. This one shoulder, asymmetric bikini top paired with a wide leg soft denim had the right idea for all things unproductive that this day would entail. Throw some shade in the mix with a cat-eye shaped flatliner and quirky black earpiece for that do not disturb façade.
