A Summer Escape

The rising temperatures constantly push me to fantasize about and plan my next travel away from the heat and the city despite the fact that I have just come back after a 2 month Goa stint. What can I say…I’m hopeless! But while I am still thinking about my next summer escape I do have a pretty good idea of what I need to pack. I have come up with a fail-safe list of key pieces that are absolutely essential in travel outfits.

~ A pair of coordinated top + pants – The magic of coordinates lies in the fact that they can be mixed and matched with other different pieces and the permutations & combinations (remember math?) are innumerable. The top can be combined with jeans/solid pants or any kind of bottoms. The pants will be perfect with solid white tops, cardigans and any type of footwear too. They look great together and apart. What’s not to love!
~ An over-sized white shirt top – This is the money-maker. You can wear this just by itself and a narrow belt as a shirt dress. You can use it as a cover-up on the beach. You can wear only the white shirt over the pants. Not to mention, it will look fabulous flying in the wind when you go sailing.
~ A big pastel bag – The bigger the better. Lets you fit your entire world while travelling and even that over-sized white shirt.
~ A statement necklace – We all love them. And there is literally no place or occasion where you you can’t sport one.
~ Plain black sunglasses. The more they border towards cat-eye frame shapes the better I say!

This complete Vero Moda look has me so ready for a summer escape. Now all I need to do is pick a place!
