Winter sun getaway style

The Red Notebook Winter Sun Fashion main 3

Most of us here in the UK head out to sunny locations to get some winter sun. The grey and gloomy winter  is a good excuse to find some solace in the warm weather. This year I was lucky to shun my heavy coats and boots and opt for my summer sandals – the sunny holiday destination was Goa. It was my first time in Goa and I was truly mesmerized by the place. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy the 4 S’s – sun , sea , sand and ….

What to pack for a winter sun getaway

Set off to your holiday in style. Three day and two evening outfits seem right for a short trip to Goa with family. You can opt for denim shorts, jumpsuits, maxi dresses or white day dresses. Make sure you carry your accessories and mix and match it with different outfits.  Whatever your swimwear style is – bikini or swimsuit, don’t forget to  carry  beach cover ups. Light kaftans or sarongs are your ideal beach cover-up choices.

For the evening

Maxi dress is an ideal choice for an evening on the beach. You can also wear your day dress  just accessorise it with statement jewellery and bright sandals to create a glam evening look.

Evening looks

I guess my intoxication level was a bit off the limit. That’s why I didn’t get a chance to take pictures in my evening outfits. Here are a few picture of what I  packed in my suitcase.
