{ FASHION } Story of a Beach vacation

Hey there peeps!

Firstly thank you so so much for an overwhelming response to the previous post. I am also glad to know that you would like more editorials on the blog. I am currently curating more looks that can fit our editorial themes, so stay tuned.

This fashion post is about to bust some myths about beach holidays and pleasantly so!
Like most of my posts that are envisioned and planned in advance, this post is an exception. I planned this shoot with Trevin who is a photographer based in Durban . We were going to shoot a tropical theme.

I was taken by surprise when the weather gods suddenly brought in snow and a mighty cold wave in some parts of the country . This, while we were already on our way to Durban.

This was my #Tfmqturns7 beach holiday and i had packed accordingly. I did see some temperature dips in the forecast and `added a jacket to my bag. But, the weather dipped to -1 on our mid-way halt with stormy winds and consistent rains.

My heart sunk as my idea of a beach holiday came crashing down. What saved me were these pants, my cap and of course the jacket. My denim shorts and mini dresses clearly got a free ride in this trip and the only important passengers were my outerwear!
So here goes the look that saved me on a cold beach vacay . The bright pink and yellow scarf saved the day for me with its happy colors. Its the best accessory for a monochrome outfit.

Busting the Beach holiday myths- 

1. Black is an absolutely delightful color on the beach especially when the waters are azure blue!
2. Not just floppy hats but even caps look trendy on the beach because they can withstand the stormy breeze.

I think the most important part of being on a holiday is to be comfortable . I couldn't have enjoyed if i was freezing . Looking at how the pics turned out , i am pretty glad i chose to be warm and monochrome with a hint of color !
