Think of a summer island paradise an island far far away from civilisation, dotted with gorgeous huts and palm trees, and surrounded by turquoise water. I knew this was going to be a dreamy holiday the second I saw this picture-postcard haven looming in the foreground as our boat bobbed towards it. And so it was.
As for clothes, I packed a bag full of pastels and tropical palm prints. It was too hot for jewellery, so I stuck to playing dress up with tassels and crochet. It’s easy to pack light for Maldives because one is in swimwear or sarongs most of the time 🙂 Keeping the weather in mind, I went for breezy silhouettes that show a bit of sun-kissed skin loose bohemian bottoms, bright tropical culottes, grecian maxi dresses, and stringy bikinis. The hues? Pastel pinks, whites, and bright tropical greens.
This lookbook is an ode to sun-drenched days in a tropical paradise and all that comes with it laughing and playing in the sparkling ocean, bare feet on sand, sipping on coconut water, and reading on golden beaches. Hope it whisks you to the tropical paradise of your dreams 🙂

I’ve always loved tropical prints. Check out this bralet I wore in Italy back when we’d just started Bruised Passports 🙂
