Another Magical Evening in the Maldives


LOCATION: Club Med Finolhu, Maldives


And just like that, we’re home from another extraordinary week abroad. Wow, wow, wow. That is just one of the many ways to describe the Maldives. Another that comes to mind includes the absolutely-exquisitely-extraordinarily-beautiful-tropical-paradise. Yep, that’ll do it. Except even that mouthful doesn’t do its heavenliness justice.

While days were spent makeup-free exploring the pure white beaches, sparkling turquoise ocean and coral reefs, evenings were a time to dress-up in your island best to enjoy the spectacular sunsets that never failed to impress. On this particular evening we walked along the beach to the poolside bar for a mocktail before dinner, getting distracted along the way by the warm light filtering through wisp of clouds laying low across the horizon, painting the sky softly as the sun fell. Oh, and the crazy crabs that made the beach come alive at night! Pretty cool, eh?

Matching my flowing white skirt, I styled my holiday outfit with the most fabulous pair of tassel earrings from By Invite Only (you may have seen me rocking their jewellery all over Instagram lately!); the perfect island accessory, if you ask me! Of course, I layered on the gold bracelets and rings as well, this time forgoing my usual necklace party for a simple lone moonstone pendant to ensure the statement earrings were the stand-out pieces of my look.

Needless to say, it seems that my obsession with accessorising with layered jewellery isn’t going anywhere any time soon. I truly love the way my By Invite Only pieces have the ability to lift an outfit and add a sparkle to your day (or, in my case, the prettiest Maldivian sunset!). And that’s saying something ‘cause the water does nothing but shimmer all day long.

When we finally peeled ourselves away from the stunning sunset (long after last light, mind you), we ventured to The Motu restaurant at our resort island, Club Med Finolhu, for four courses of delicious international cuisine while overlooking the ocean that still glowed turquoise even in the dark of night.

And that pretty much sums up every surreal evening we were fortunate enough to experience while in the Maldive; walks along the beach, magnificent sunsets, calm turquoise water and chic island jewellery that added a twinkle to even the brightest of evenings.

I’m wearing:
By Invite Only earrings (also available in a myraid of other colours), bracelets and rings, MINKPINK crop top, Tularosa lace skirt from REVOLVE and Billini slides.
