Hey there! I know I've been MIA for a while and that's because I was out of town traveling for that mini vacation I spoke about in my previous post - my high school BFF Prerana's bachelorette! We went to a beautiful beach town called Kovalam in the southern state of Kerala, which is known for its lush landscapes and breathtaking backwaters. There were five of us and we stayed at the Vivanta by Taj Hotel, a stunning seaside resort and hotel landscaped with Balinese style landscaped gardens and water bodies. So beautiful that it won our hearts. As the weather was really hot, we spent most of our time lounging by the pool over cocktails and gossip and swimming of course!
This was my first vacation in years and I could finally wear all my favorite resort wear along with my beloved favorite mirrored aviators from YoyoMelody which you can see in the photo above and below.

I absolutely adore the blue and yellow cutout dress I'm wearing in the photos below and actually saved it for this holiday! Its tropical and perfect for a vacation. The back is divine too!

The hotel has a stunning infinity pool surrounded by greenery so I just had to do the ubiquitous poolside selfie!

After spending the day by the pool, at night it was time for us to doll up and hit the beach side restaurant of our hotel. We surprised the bride-to-be with a cozy dinner by the ocean where we had instructed the hotel to decorate the place with candles, balloons and lamps.

A lot of my friends loved the black lace dress I'm wearing in these photos. You can get it from Yoyomelody here. Though it was a really short weekend trip, we had loads of fun and a fantastic time catching up over bottles of wine and lots of girl talk! Vacations with girlfriends are the best! Don't you agree?
