Kiara Schwartz, the globetrotting blogger behind ToBruckAve, has been hanging out most recently in Cape Town, South Africa. Last weekend, she took herself (and our newest Resort collection) on a stunning South African adventure from Cape Town to the southernmost tip of Cape Point.
Take a look at her photo diary below, as well as an Insider’s Guide to the coolest places to eat, sleep and take a selfie.
Making a pit stop on the way out of Cape Town at Haas Coffee for the perfect latte.
Taking a shoe selfie on the Camps Bay main road as we make our way South. On one side lies the most perfect beach and on the other, the amazing 12 Apostles mountain range.
Bold stripes - the Soludos Barca is a perfect match for the Green Point Lighthouse!
Taking the must-see seaside Champans Peak Road out of town.
Locally crafted treasures on the roadside.
Lunchtime! The view from Mariner's Wharf on Hout Bay Harbor. They serve the very best calamari!
Dropping in on the Indian Ocean side of town, Muizenberg Beach to check out their famously colorful changing huts.
Soaking in the view while listening to my road trip playlist. It was so windy!
Arriving in hippie heaven - Khalk Bay is full of tiny streets and beautiful views.
Khalk's Bay's Olympia Cafe is a must-visit, if only for their freshly squeezed apple juice. I almost finished it in one gulp.
Jewelry for the day.
Hanging out in Khalk Bay. Everyone walks around barefoot, but I stuck to my Soludos.
Checking into our cottage at Simons Bay - a charming waterfront hideaway.
Sunset from the beach house!
Greeting the sunrise from my weekend cottage at Bosky Dell in Simons Town.
Coffee on the patio - cheers to the East Coast!
Making my way to Boulders Beach, where you can swim amongst the boulders and penguins! Best part? No sharks!
Hey penguins! They stare, they waddle, they swim, I love them.
Refueling with brunch in the charming fisherman's village.
Hanging out at Cape Point, the southernmost point of Africa. Any further South and we'd hit the South Pole.
Endless ocean views (and serious winds)!
The view back from Cape Point. Atlantic Ocean on one side, Indian on the other. One cold, the other warm.
Endless surf on the West coast. Nothing but surf shacks and lighthouses.
Made it back! Safe and sound on my friend's balcony in Cape Town with a view of Table Mountain.
