Island Style

Sorry for my lengthy delay. My excuse? Thai New Year (SongKran) and a bunch of  blissful public holidays. We went to Koh Samed, an island two hours drive and a 10 minute speed boat ride from our house in Bangkok, to a resort called ‘TubTim’ (how utterly cute?!)

I love a long shirt-style cover-up. Especially in a bright summer colour and light material. M&S – similar. Sarongs are pretty but a total hassle to tie properly. Either I end up strangling myself (but looking nice) or appearing like my bed-sheet is still attached (and comfortable) This solves my problems.

Polka Dot bikini – Guy Laroche. Denim shorts – Zara. Striped Vest – Trenery. Pink shorts – Mango (JCrew similar). Green satchel – Jaspal. Hat – Rip Curl

Black bikini – Triumph. And the padding is BRILLIANT, although it absorbs about 6 litres of water…

Ray-Bans

Checkered over-shirt – M&S, similar in yellow

Bali Beach Bum

I just returned to Bangkok after a glorious week in Bali, Indonesia at the Ayara Resort and Spa. It really was heaven on earth and simply breathtaking. I took too many photos and am trying hard to pick the best ones! Here are two of my favorites.

Bali inspired me to be comfortable (everyone is very island-style-relaxed) but bold with colors and prints, just like the locals, flowers and scenery which ranges from tiered rice paddies to turquoise oceans surrounded by dramatic cliffs. Here are my top outfits from Bali, the hot pink shorts were a great staple.

Hot Pink!

I cannot believe it is pouring with rain as I drive to the airport in Bangkok and in a few hours I will be in Bali, Indonesia.

Either way I plan on brightening up my day with these fab bright pink shorts! What do you think? A tad ’80’s in colour (lumo allert!) but the cut is classic.

See you on the flipside!

Striped Delight

Love this pink and orange striped tank from Gap (new collection). The material is super comfy and the stripes make your waist appear smaller.
Have matched with (old) Country Road denim shorts. Perfect for a weekend brunch.
