Night out at the Nest

Without a doubt rooftop bars are legendary in Bangkok nightlife. We opted for something laid back this time; a rooftop bar called The Nest. Overlooking the Bangkok skyline and surrounded by lounge music, we had cocktails and champagne in nest-like lounge beds. Absolute fun!

(I'm wearing COS asymetric dress and Zara belt and bag)

Outfit: A beach kimono

Closet confession: I've packed an impossible amount of beach dresses  for this holiday. (Who can blame me, I never get to wear them!). First up was this kimono inspired tunic in black and nude print with a butterfly sleeve. I threw it on for fresh milk shakes in the sand and all it needed was a pop of coral nail polish and big gold accessories.

COS sandals
House of Harlow sunburst ring

Alone on an island

After a long 15 hour bus and ferry trip in the middle of the night (in which we were the only tourists and quite the attraction; apparantly the island is even less touristy than we had figured), we arrived to the beautiful tropical island of Phu Quoc in the south tip of Vietnam. It's beautiful, pieceful - and unfortunately a bit cloudy due to rain season - and we're in full relax mode.

Outfit: Out in London

Two weeks ago in London, I was on a night out to the OXO Tower. A restaurant that overlooks the London skyline from a roof terrace and is located right next to the Thames river. Surely an experience that called for a draped silk dress and high heels.

Trying to capture the past few days in Bangkok is quite a challenge with a picture worthy sight at every corner. So here's an image overload and I'll shoot a tropical outfit post soon. Now I'm jumping in a cab to go to a rooftop bar called The Nest and have cocktails. Gotta go!

Hi from Bangkok!

My jet lagged self in a local Starbucks - where they have wifi; woohoo!

Hi lovelies! Just wanted to give you a sign of life from the other side of the world. So far we're loving it here, as we already knew from previous trips. Today the jet lag (ok, and those huge Caipirinha's) kicked in, so we spent it being totally lazy at the hotel. Can be so nice and essential to have a day of absolutely nothing every once in a while, don't you think? So far internet possibilities have been a bit limited but I'm working on a nice Bangkok post as we speak. Speaking of internet; Twitter is blocked here, so I'm trying to keep you guys updated by posting via Twitpic that luckily does work! :)
