Paradise Texted Me!

I love the beach although I am not quite there yet (a few days in counting) I wanted to share one of my favourite trips. I went to the Bahamas last season and had an amazing time with friends. We've already planned that it's going to be a yearly venture. It was incredibly hot of course, but there was something beautiful about the way the sun kissed everyone - giving her fabulous wink to us each day as we woke up to paradise.
 Here's the view from our hotel, which was basically our backyard.
For this beach season wearing my new swimsuits are definitely in order, however I thought I'd give you a few ways that I'll be donning my scarf - all done with simple knots and no sewing required friends! Whether casual, on-the-go, or just mere beach styling a scarf is a must-have in my suitcase, for any season! It's versatile qualities have never steered me wrong. I wanted to do a tutorial on ways to tie a scarf, but it was quite long, so I decided to show you these instead for the moment...
See you later lovelies! Enjoy the beach, sun, and all oceanic beauty this season.

  7. I never know how to wrap my scarves.. I have a few but only do the around-the-neck type of wearing them. I love the different ways you show how to do it.

    second of all... i love that you incorporated your beach attire and showed us a bunch of different ways of wearing a scarf. i actually would not have even guessed that was a scarf if you hadn't told me. especially in that last photo, it looks like a tailored shirt!!! thanks for participating in the event and sharing these awesome photos with us!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ahhhh.... I LOVE the Bahamas.  The photos are gorgeous.

    And please teach some of the scarf folds..... you could do one or two in a post- because some of those are amazing!

    I've never been to the Bahamas but it sounds lovely and who wouldn't want a backyard like that? So fun!

    I can't believe how many different ways you tied your scarf! I have something similiar that you're supposed to be able to die and use in various ways but I've never been really good at it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Those are great scarf ideas.  I'm actually planning on doing a scarf tutorial at my blog soon! :) I've never been to the Bahamas, but would love to go...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks dear, I'd love to show another tutorial. Yes I was thinking maybe one or two a post. Wasn't certain if anyone was interested, but from this post I think that it's a winner. Thank you! xo

    ReplyDelete
  17. OH Kara, yes now here I think I can help you with, many ways indeed, I love scarves around the neck as well, but when I had to come up with an outfit for a gathering in a pinch I used my scarf. I also used it recently at a barbecue. So glad that you came to read this post. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you Faye! Do try them out and perhaps create an outfit post for it, would love to see it dear. Take care.  ~xxoo

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you lovely! Yes, the Bahamas is definitely an enjoyable place. It was incredibly hot when I was there if you look closely you can see a sort of soft sheen in the photos, that's just how they came out, it's so weird. It gave all of my photos a sort of smoky glow. haha!
    So glad that you were inspired! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great! I'm happy you got a bit of inspiration! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks sweets, It's always fun for me to come up with different looks especially for the heated climate. -xxoo

  22. i am not a huge beach fan, love the fact that you dress up for the beach! everybody should do that and you are showing us how to do that

    ReplyDelete
  23. Are you? That's great I'll have to check it out... Scarves are staple items in my family's wardrobe, because you can do so much with them, I think all women should own one.  I hope that you're able to experience the Bahamas in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Sweet! Yeah, ever since I new the beach theme I could not wait to show a few ways to wear scarves. I had to cut out alot of this post, but will show more ways later in a future post. Oh Bahamas is nothing compared to Philippines dear.  LOL  ~xo

  31. Thanks so much Kristy! Yes, I was so anxious for this event when you said beach theme, & immediately wanted to do something with a wraps and a scarf, I had to schedule it while I'm about to be on holiday, but everything worked out.
    I love the art in ways to tie a scarf and just wanted to share more ideas with everyone. Thanks for yet another great event. -xxoo

  37. I love the scarfs as skirts for the beach - such a perfect, easy cover-up. You're Bahamas trip sounds like a blast, and I'm completely jealous. These beautiful photos are making me want to sneak out of the office right now and head to the beach!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've never been to the Bahamas but I LOVE the Caribbean so I can relate to how great that trip must have been!

    You are an absolute genius with that scarf.  I can maybe get 2 or 3 different wears out of a scarf, never this many!  And as a bag?!  Genius.  You are a genius.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh my, your pictures from the Bahamas look magical. I've never been there myself (someday) but my mom went for her honeymoon - as did my grandmother on hers, I believe. It seems like a stunning place, heat and all! The ways you worked that scarf are completely amazing. I was trying to figure out some alternate ways to wear one of mine the other day and I failed entirely! I didn't come up with a single thing! Haha.
