In any case, it's a pretty big deal, which - obviously - means that I had to find the perfect outfit. Me being silly, I was too nervous that morning to remember to shoot some outfit photos, so I snapped this one at work before the presentation. I think this teal polka-dot peplum dress is going to become one of my new go-to dresses in my wardrobe - I love it so much! I added simple black heels (just high enough to make my butt look good, but not too high to add falling-on-my-face to my presentation). I added simple accessories, including an owl necklace as owls are a symbol of wisdom.
Afterwards, my awesome friends took me for a much-needed drink or few! We spent the afternoon in Camps Bay, where we enjoyed numerous cocktails (plus some much-needed food) at Cafe Caprice. We then went for a walk on the beach (despite the fearful wind that absolutely sand-blasted us), since I hadn't actually had my toes in the sand since BEFORE I started my MSc! (That's over 2 years! And yes, I live a stone's throw away from the sea. Scandalous.) We finished off the day in style, by enjoying a bottle of chardonnay in the Waterfront. By that point, the whole day had completely exhausted my, so we headed home for some much-needed sleep!
Here are a few photos I took (forgive how wind-swept our hair looks!).
