Happy SONGKRAN everyone!
Songkran is a 3-day Thai new year celebration where the whole country has water fights literally everywhere! During the festival, if you take a peek outside your window, the chances are you’ll see different groups of people of every age group out with their colourful water guns, beaming with smiles and splashing each other with water. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know each other, during this festival everyone has got the Songkran spirit and is up for a little water fight session to cool down from the scorching sun!
The Songkran vibes are all about colours and floral patterns! I recently got this super vibrant dress from Nasty Gal and couldn’t resist wearing it for my ‘Songkran look’! I love the cutout sides on this dress as it creates an illusion of slimmer waistline and the polka dots on the royal blue is just a perfect combination as it would look nice on practically every skin tone! Finishing off strong, the daring open back is also an extremely modern touch to this statement dress.
To dress down this eye-catching piece, I paired it with a pair of super tall platform sandals and a casual, yet elegant Chanel vintage backpack. To complete the look, I threw on a gold necklace to bring out the gold details on the straps of my backpack.
Songkran is one of my favourite holidays as it is fresh, colourful, summery, topped up with friendly vibes all around. There’s nothing better than positive energy!
❤ Happy Songkran ❤
