Beach Life - Bali Diary Part 8

August 29, 2015

Location: Legian Beach Bali

Hey everyone

With hot temps all year round, Bali is definitely the place where you can hit the beaches everyday. We didn't get the change to visit the more remote beaches, but we were staying right at Legian beach. This spot is more crowded, but I loved it. The ocean has incredible waves which is perfect for surfing and the local Balinese were selling the most amazing stuff. Ranging from sterling silver and fresh water pearl jewelry to all kinds of artwork and yummy foods like Kelapa Muda juice en fresh peanuts.  

We didn't take as many photos at the beach as we had wanted to. Everytime we were there we just wanted to relax and not stroll around with heavy and expensive camera gear. Still a few snaps to give you an idea though. Halter top bikini's have been really trending this summer and to be honest I grabbed this piece on sale a few years ago. Happy to be able to rock it again. Indonesian sarongs are the perfect cover up at the beach. I bought this beautiful batik version near the Gitgit waterfalls. They are really pretty to use as a beach towel too, or when you go for a picknick and use it as a plaid.

Hey everyone

The Bali journey continues and I can't begin to tell you how much we have been enjoying it!  Emiel and I were able to join a V.I.P. party at our hotel which is located in Legian. Unlimited wine and small bites included, even a small band was playing. Dancing till sunset and being able to meet so many fun people. It was the first time staying here at the Legian Beach Hotel and it sure won't be our last. Amazing staff who are all trying to make you feel right at home. Great foods, tons of luxury and authentic Balinese decor. I fell in love with this place!

Today's post is all about this beautiful crochet dress I snatched from a local boutique at Kuta Beach. First I thought it was a little too revealing, but Emiel persuaded me to go ahead and grab it anyway. Apart of being a man and ALL men love see-through crochet, Emiel has an impeccable taste for clothing and a great eye for detail. I love how he sometimes sees pieces that are fabulous that I haven't even noticed yet. He is a rare breed my man!

   Bali is a place where you rarely see the women wearing high heels. Even the western (tourist) women. Me being a fanatic heel lover, I had to get used to that. It seems perfectly logic to me though. The pavements in the streets are tiny. Cobble stones making me slip, fall and eat dirt even wearing flats. The rest of the island is mostly beautiful nature and stunning beaches, so no heels required there either. Only the huge malls (they are fabulous btw) are doable.

 The reason I am rambling about heels is; when I was choosing this dress, my first pick was to add a pair of silver metallic sandal heels I scored at Zara in Ibiza last summer. A nude pair would have been fabulous too. Uuuuuh...NOPE not a great idea here. When it comes to this island wearing heels is just plain gruesome. Thankfully flats are trending, so I lucked out here. I was already imagining myself stumbling and tripping on a wet floor filled with Bintang beer and with a dress like this, the sight wouldn't have been so pretty. Or maybe in some cases (mostly men) it would have been. Picture it!  End result: a quick change of heart, because let's be real!  Heels at a party in a tropical garden and dinner plans at a beach club in Seminyak totally wouldn't have made any sense right?

On one of our Bali tours we stopped by Gitgit waterfalls which are the largest waterfalls here in Bali. You can find it in the north of the island close to Gitgit village. It took us a 45 minute walk down the trails to get to this amazing spot. Located in a beautiful piece of rain forest, complete with fruit trees and tropical insects it completely took our breath away!

Hey everyone 

The Bali story continues, and today I want to show you a few favorite pieces we shot while getting our suntans on near the hotel pool. As much as I love walking around in just a bikini, I feel most comfortable with a cover up and that's what this stunning Jacky Luxury tunic did for me. I love the see through material making it sheer enough to make the look appear easy breezy and totally summer prove! What attracted me the most were the silver details that makes this piece an absolute showstopper. I paired it with a Victoria's Secret two piece bikini I scored in L.A. last summer and couldn't resist grabbing one of my favorite bracelets by Myca Couture. It is all very much sparkle, but hey that's what I love about it.  Sometimes a girls needs some serious bling right?
