Who doesn’t love a beach vacay? Toes between soft white sand, sound of the ocean, mouthwatering cocktails and a little bit of humidity make the perfect combination for pure happiness. Packing for these dreamy getaways is always fun; shorts, shorts and more shorts, kaftans, sandals, swimsuits, sunglasses, lipsticks and lots of sun spray are a few essentials I always need when hitting the beach.
Owning a statement cover-up that you can throw over your bikini when you’re sitting by the pool is a must. Personally I stick to single colour bathing suits and pair these with printed or embroidered kaftans. Or you could team up your signature bikini with a plain white kimono. I always add a touch of bright lippy when maxing by the pool, it’s my simple style staple to glam up any day look. Other beach fashion essentials include, a cute straw bag, classic shades, metallic sandals, a large sun hat and a pair of denim or white shorts.
I am wearing classic white shorts, a simple vest and this beautiful aqua ‘maharani beach kaftan’ by Maisha Concept. I love the cover up; it makes a statement, flows like a dream and the fabric is super soft.
As I complete this blog post on a cold, cloudy day in Nairobi, I can’t wait to pack for my next beach holiday; luckily I don’t have to wait too long!
