Hey Everyone! With Diwali now behind usâ€¦ Iâ€™m sure youâ€™re all gearing up for Christmas and New Year! And what better place to celebrate these than at Goa!
I simply love Goaâ€¦ I go there at least 2-3 times a yearâ€¦ for a minimum of 10 days at a stretch… was there whole of last two weeks and came back just a couple of days back (and am hating coming back already ) But if youâ€™re going there around Christmas and New year, youâ€™re obviously looking at spending a lot of time on the beachâ€¦ and attending as many beach parties as you want!
Now thereâ€™s a difference in the way you dress for beach parties vs. parties at clubsâ€¦ your city party wear that youâ€™d wear to a club in Bombay is not something you wanna be wearing at a beach party in Goaâ€¦ after all, you donâ€™t wanna stand out like a sore thumb in your bling and heels, while everyone else looks all beachy and sexyâ€¦!
So if youâ€™re going to a beach partyâ€¦ ditch the blingâ€¦ get into something more funâ€¦ something you can lounge in and also dance inâ€¦ something thatâ€™s comfortable and yet sexy!
Here Iâ€™ve put together 2 beach party looksâ€¦ one for Christmas and one for New Yearâ€™s eve! Hope you like them and let them inspire youâ€¦
Look 1: “Angel of Yore”
Iâ€™m calling this look that I put together for Christmas, the â€˜Angel of Yoreâ€™! Itâ€™s a breezy, bohemian look, inspired by the angels who came to bless Jesus Chirst on the day of his birth at Jerusalem.
Flowing white maxi-dress with pastel butterfly prints, bright colourful accessories and a pretty floral tiaraâ€¦ everything that symbolizes purity, innocence and the blossoming of lifeâ€¦! Everything I imagine the angels to be dressed in… Innocent, and Hot! (Just wish I had the wings tooâ€¦ )
Details of the outfit:
White Maxi dress from China Town, Singapore
Colourful accessories (necklace and bracelet) from The Chim Shop in Palolem, Goa
And Floral tiara I got for Rs.50 from the local market at Palolem and my favorite beaded spiral bracelet worn like an anklet!
I personally love going barefoot when I head out to beach partiesâ€¦sinking my feet into the cool evening sand… the true blue bohemian way… :), which is why I make sure I add a statement anklet to my footâ€¦ (usually wear bracelets instead ;))â€¦ But if you must, add a pair of pretty flip flops to this and youâ€™ll be ready to rock the beach!
Look 2: Vintage Tribe
This New Year’s beach party look, Iâ€™m calling, The Vintage Tribe! This look, I think has a very chic, modern yet vintage feelâ€¦ not the bling that youâ€™d expect from regular New Yearâ€™s outfitsâ€¦ This vintage floral printed romper from Zara has the perfect blend of casual and classyâ€¦ comfortable and chicâ€¦! Paired up with the right accessories, it makes for a fantastic beach party outfit!
Now you all know by now that Iâ€™m not a very â€˜earringsâ€™ personâ€¦ But I felt that this outfit called for something, so I wore this single statement bird ear-cuff from Amrapali Jewels to complete the sexy-tribal-vintage lookâ€¦!
Details of the outfit:
Romper from Zara
Bird ear-cuff form Amrapali Jewels (This earring comes in a pairâ€¦ however, I like wearing it as a single ear piece, so my BFF and I, decided to keep one of each ;))
Turquoise anklet (which again, is actually supposed to be a bracelet) from the Tibetan market in Leh
And my mumâ€™s green beaded necklace from Bali, that Iâ€™m wearing around my hand.
Oh and both these looks wont just look great for a night beach party, but also in the daytime ðŸ™‚
