Life’s a beach….!

I decided to go on a trip with a girlfriend for a weeks getaway to Phuket in Thailand, you know the relaxing, heaps of massages and good food kinda holiday… well it didn’t disappoint…!

NOW let’s be honest, most of the time when on holiday, and especially a sweaty, hotbox like Phuket at this time of the year, your major concern is getting a tan, cooling off in the water, exploring and of course relaxing by the pool with a pina colada… BUT you can still look good doing it!

I don’t wear much colour in general but there is something about holidays that brings out the wearing colour in me, it’s as if I can delve back into that other part of my wardrobe which is getting a bit neglected… the colour I once used to wear and give it a comeback. Also when I dorned a bright red dress, got a few comments from the ladyboys about how good I looked, so can’t go wrong there haha.

When you’re absolutely sweating your ringer off… (believe me I did), you don’t want to be wearing luxurious, glamorous materials, that are heavy and bulky…the lighter the better and comfier the better.

Of course I didn’t throw away my staple black for a trip to the islands and Leo Dicaprio’s THE BEACH (which is pictured here). Just a simple cotton black mini with a black Zimmerman top, slightly see through but beautiful and light and flowy and to bring it all together a colourful kaftan. I like it because it’s simple but it’s still eye catching and to top it off a black hat, everyone needs a hat. Think sunsmart/stylish in one.

Just because you’re on holiday doesn’t mean you need to start wearing bum bags and ugly nanna tanks…! My motto: If you wouldn’t wear it down the street at home, don’t wear it on holidays…!

The Tunic (like a long top with a slit down the side) is my new favourite thing!

From Country road (and a shout out to CR for a fabulous autumn collection, just GORG!) I have paired the very comfy top with a black skirt with a white stripe ….. I tried it all black but I think breaking it up popped it a little better.

This outfit is great for a slimming effect (and I can’t go past a good monochrome style), Black of course always does the job and the white lines down the side lengthens the body and creates a attractive silhouette.

This is an outfit you want to wear on a fat day!!!!

ALSO if you want to go a little more sophisticated, tie the hair back…… and if you wear glasses (which I only do sometimes…..they are prescription but it more depends what I’m wearing haha don’t think the optometrist would like to hear that!) it’s edging towards sexy librarian (who doesn’t want that!)

The new arrival!!!

This summer, I needed a flowy maxi (don’t we all). The good thing about this one it is structured with lining in the back to shape it better. YES of course I have maxi’s but not in black. (‘Got it in black?’ I said to the saleswoman) I used to think long black dresses were a bit drab and more for a funeral (I really did)…. but there’s something effortlessly chic about a long black maxi….. paired with gorgeous silver or gold accessories to make it pop (I go for the silver).

Do yourself a favour…. every woman needs a BLAXI (black maxi)……

OUTFIT : Dress – Saba, Shoes – Portmans, Necklace – gift
