Pattern Play + Beach Bag Essentials

 Earlier this month, we took a trip to Mövenpick Hotel in Mactan to relax and unwind. As my in-laws were visiting from England, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to show them more of the beautiful beaches in Cebu.

This outfit was one of the looks that I wore during our stay at the resort. I love a good print on print action so naturally I paired this striped off-shoulder top (a recent acquisition from ASOS) with a polka dot midi skirt.

 A great tip to remember when mixing prints is to choose clothing pieces in the same colour palette. This way, your outfit still looks cohesive even with the pattern play.

I finished the look with cat eye sunnies, a straw boater and a brown woven belt.

So what are my beach bag essentials?
Aside from taking the basics— a bikini, a hat and sunglasses, I also bring with me a packet of cleansing sheets. These wipes are wonderful to have in your bag as they keep you looking fresh throughout the day. 

I never wear make-up when I'm at the beach so to add a bit of colour to my face, I pack a lip crayon in a bright pink shade.

Staying at the beach means being exposed to the sun for long periods of time. I make sure I keep my skin protected with this bottle of Flawless Skin Protect Spray.
