TRAVEL DIARIES | RESORT STYLE | GOA
Who doesn’t love a beach holiday ??!
There was a time I would take off to Goa every 4 months or so, just for the weekend or so to unwind. However past 2-3 years due to Mr. K and my hectic schedules, it has become something of just an annual trip. This year we decided to head out to Goa for a long weekend to celebrate a very dear friends birthday. She had invited all her loved ones from around the and we were really looking forward to a weekend of sunshine and friends. It also happened to be my birthday that weekend so it really was the perfect plan.
I like nothing more than to travel to beautiful destinations and explore the culture and fashion there. Of course a holiday means that I need to have my bags packed with outfits perfect for the weather and location and these small breaks are one of my favourite sources of inspiration. I love beach holidays, what’s better than being barefoot in the sand with friends. Of course, dressing with a tropical beach in mind is a sure fire way to nail a perfect summer look beyond your go-to pair of shorts or tanks. Fuss free relaxed, boho chic, airy are keywords when you pack for a Goa holiday !
One of my favourite beach styles is the trendy kaftan style. I recently chanced upon Benaras by Citrus and fell in love with their styles and designs. Hand embroidered and made with love, these beach and honeymoon worthy kaftans are a MUST HAVE in every beach or poolside wardrobe.
I think Benaras by Citrus is a luxury resort wear brand that should be a part of every bride to be or fashionistas travel wardrobe. I LOVE the motifs and detailing – it is so beautiful no ?
My love for natural fabrics and whites made me pick this stunning piece from their latest collection. It is hand embroidered with motifs and words inspired by the beach, has pompoms and tassels and is so so easy to style.
To add to the look I teamed it up with a hat that works perfectly well with my new short hair style. What I love about the hat is that it’s plain on the outside but has flowers woven in on the base, making it stand out.
A pair of red sunnies from YSL (as you know I am obsessed with sunglasses) ,a pair of waterproof jelly sandals from Valentino in gold and of course resort inspired tassel earrings from Deepa Gurnani was all I needed to be pool party ready.
When at the beach or chilling by the pool it is really important to be and feel comfortable. Cottons, natural fabrics and sunscreen should dominate your beach holiday wardrobe. You can order yourself a beautifully hand embroidered kaftan, kimonos, scarves from Benaras by Citrus via their Instagram account. They are currently accepting orders through that or via email – firstname.lastname@example.org. They start the Kaftans at about 150$ upwards. They are also available at Ogaan Delhi and Take Khazana too !
Sharing a few other looks from their resort wear collection that I am eyeing for my next vacation and I am sure you will love them as well !
I can’t wait to share my experience from the amazing weekend in Goa !
