About a week into my South Africa vacation we made a little stop in the former Malay Quarter of Cape Town known as Bo-Kaap. You might remember me mentioning it in my loving in July post. It's just really cool to see a place like this--so brightly colorful--in the middle of the rest of Cape Town. Unfortunately, I only had a few minutes to wander in the neighborhood so we only took a few photos before we had to head off to our next destination!

But this was one of the warmer days on the trip. Cape Town pretty much has all four seasons in one day, so I was happy for some sun. Yes to these white sunnies (with zebra print on the sides) and comfy chinos though. Would love to go back to Bo-Kaap for another shoot. Wouldn't you? FYI--the first image is courtesy of Wikipedia.

In case you didn't know, my first two weeks of July were spent in South Africa, vacationing in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. Since those places are on the other side of the equator, it was winter in July. Thankfully I brought layers and the temps were pretty nice for the most part. As you can see from the pictures, I got to experience a lot of things, including visiting Nelson Mandela's and Desmond Tutu's homes, going on a few safaris and game drives, and taking in the beautiful scenery of South Africa. Follow on Instagram to see even more pics! Have you ever been to South Africa or any country on the African continent? I'd probably live in Cape Town if I ever moved there.

You might have heard a lot about contemporary artist Jeff Koons in the past few weeks. You might have seen him in Vanity Fair recently or saw his half pony, half dinosaur Split-Rocker sculpture at Rockefeller Center. Or maybe, like me, you heard that he just collaborated with H&M for an art-pop balloon dog leather bag. And unlike his other creations, this bag is affordable, coming in at $50 (available July 17). Check out some of his pieces to see if you like his style. Some are a bit out there, but others are quite interesting and cool. These are a few of my faves from the Celebration collection. What do you think? I hear Gaga is a fan. All images courtesy of Jeff Koons.
