Eikestad - City of Oaks

Outfit of the Day

Stellenbosch is also affectionately known as Eikestad - which translates from Afrikaans to "City of Oaks" - because of the large number of oak trees that were planted by its founder (Simon van der Stel).  The oak tree is a symbol of our town. The University logo is an "S" that ends its sweep with an oak leaf. One of the key things that makes you into a true "Matie" (the name for Stellenbosch students) is having an acorn fall on your head. So when I saw this acorn necklace yesterday, I absolutely had to buy it and wear it today!
