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 Cape coat seems to be pretty ‘hot right now!’

This one is like a white tuxedo jacket! I think they give you an extra bit of class, something eye catching…. and who can go wrong with white on black.

I’ve gone for a bit of a contrast look, business on top, party down the bottom…. leather boots above the knee and leather skirt. It’s a bit of a daring look but exude confidence and anyone can pull it off.

On above the knee boots…. do they? Don’t they? look at bit well…. street walker haha… ! NAH do it right and it’s a big thumbs up. I’d say avoid the patent shiny leather and super super high heels (pretty woman style) and you should be right. BUT there’s a never say never with anything… it’s all about what you pair it with.
