Exact has always represented accessible and stylish fashion for the modern family. We first experienced this brand for ourselves with their Summer 2015 collection. As we were all up for an adventure, our family decided to play tourists for the day and enjoyed a lovely Winter’s day exploring Cape Town city wearing clothing from Exact’s Winter 2016 collection.
Dad was perfectly happy to be on the wrong end of the camera lens while we ran around all over town.
Going into Cape Town city with Golden Arrow
The kids were very excited and wanted a truly authentic experience so we took the bus into town! Admittedly, we used an Uber for the short distance to and from the bus stop but only because the walk was too far for little legs to walk (about 1km).
The bus ride was great! Golden Arrow Bus Services charges off-peak rates after 9 which worked out to under R12 for adults and kids each.
We had so many giggles speeding over the pot holes on the roads and being air born every few seconds. The four of us were laughing so hard by the time we pulled into the bus terminus in town and it set a great tone for the rest of the day.
Once in town, we walked through all the hawkers and stalls selling goods. Although they complained a bit about the smell and pollution (Josh hates litter bugs). They immensely enjoyed looking at the tall buildings and the massive flower market on Adderley Street.
Waiting out the rain
By the time we got the kids onto St. George’s Mall it was pouring with rain. We waited out the rain in Wimpy and had some hot chocolate and freshly baked muffins.
Once the downpour subsided, we were on the road again and heading towards The Company’s Garden in the middle of the city.
Feeding the squirrels in Cape Town city
The Company’s Garden is situated in Queen Victoria Street, at the top of Adderley Street, and adjacent to the South African Parliament. As a Cape Town local, I have fond childhood memories of feeding the squirrels there.
Thirty years later and the Company’s Garden, Cape Town is still a wonderful place to enjoy nature and experience Cape Town.
What I love most about The Company’s Garden,Cape Town, is that it never changes. Everything is always exactly as I remember it. The only thing that changed is the price of the peanuts!
Alex has a very strong moral code not to feed fat squirrels. She feels they’ve had enough to eat so we were all enlisted to help her look for squirrels with flat tummy’s who looked like they were living on bread line.
This squirrel made the cut
It rained on and off all day while we were in the gardens but our Exact clothing did it’s job of keeping us warm. Alex and my jackets kept the wind and cold out when zipped up. I usually layer her like a turducken but she only had a vest and a thin top on underneath her warm jacket and she was warm enough for the cold weather.
Both kids also wore kids denim from Exact. The style was completely relaxed and fit comfortably as they were running all over the garden, climbing and crawling after squirrels. It brought back so many happy childhood memories and we were having so much fun watching them enjoy the outdoors!
Winter in Cape Town is cold and wet but we had a blast on our adventure! It was so nice to enjoy the crisp fresh air and spend the entire day together.
Their laughter and all the memories we made are priceless!
Our Exact Winter clothing kept us warm all day long even in the heart of Winter! I’m sure we were mistaken for tourists visiting Cape Town on holiday!
Alex, Joshua and I are wearing clothing exclusive to Exact. You can find these in-store and online at www.exact.co.za.
