I changed today's challenge from Spring to Autumn, to match the season that I'm currently in.
Cape weather is notoriously fickle. In essence, we have two seasons: a hot, dry, windy one, and a cold, wet one. Autumn mostly consists of these alternating in quick succession, so you can have a gloriously sunny 28 °C one day, and have it be 13 °C and raining the next, and then back again! So, at this time of year, my number one essential to have with me is a small, portable but fashionable umbrella that I can have in my handbag, just in case.
My newest purchase is this one from Woolworths.
The black and white is both stylish and coordinates with most of my wardrobe. The bird print is also a big trend for this year.
