Caribbean Resort Style Guide

Ever since my first trip to Barbados last year, I have been in love with the Caribbean and its culture. I love how carefree Caribbean people are, I am not sure if its the music or the sun or a mixture of both but these people are real friendly and real fun. I love shooting here with my favorite photographer Shane Leecock, you may know him from his instagram @shaneleecock.

This time around I was inspired by the Hilton Resort hotel we have been inhabiting for the two plus weeks we have been here. We stayed here for a couple days last time too, the sunsets are the perfect gold for our shoots. I packed in some of my favourite local brands to shoot on the beach. Shane, my go to Bajan photographer does amazing things with light so I was excited to showcase some of my favorite local brands.

The one I am wearing most here is Lalesso – an ethical fashion brand birthed in the African content. They do some of the greatest swimwear and cover ups and I have loved their stuff since the launch and they’re the first local brand I really got to know when I first started out in fashion years ago.Their 2018 resort wear range is launching online soon, but I have been lucky enough to get the sneak peak! Make sure you guys subscribe to their newsletter for an update on when the collection is live and shopable.

I was keen to collaborate with Pichulik once again. I had shot their jewelry a bit in Dubai when I was there a couple years back. Their jewelry is truly special and native to South Africa. The designs garners attention and intrigue from anyone who sees me in them. I am sure you guys will be eager to pick up some of the earrings I am wearing so be sure to check below for credits and shop links.

Finally I squeezed in the most gorgeous dramatic Atlantic blue silk kaftan from Papushka. Check below for full outfit details and links to shop my looks!
