Fashion/ Travel: How to Getaway in Style! [FashionValet x The Luxe Nomad Getaway]

I found out two days ago that my boyfriend's bunch of uni friends were spending their Easter break in Pulau Tioman. Apparently, they did ask him along but he rejected them. I asked him why didn't he go, or at least tell me about the trip?

Him: I know you'd definitely force me to go but I don't want to.
Me: Why not? You need a holiday anyway. 
Him: Because I want to spend more time with you here.

I was speechless. Touched, too. That simple gesture, that sacrifice, an act of love. Ever since I've started working, we hardly get to spend time together anymore, even though we're both in JB. What more with his even busier schedule now that he's in third year of med school. At the most we get to meet once a week on the weekends- sometimes only for a couple of hours. I know he badly wants to go for a trip too but according to him, it's boring without me. 

So despite being so last-minute, what prompted me to write this post was in hopes that I can win a romantic getaway for the both of us. I'd like to win a stay at Paresa Phuket on The Luxe Nomad because a beach vacation in lovely Phuket is just the place to go to as our first ever overseas travel destination! If I had a choice, I'd pick the Dima Spa Pool Suite that is overlooking the blue sea while being surrounded by lush greeneries so the place feels more private.  There's even a private pool and jacquzzi. Sigh, bliss. Just look at how gorgeous this is!

Now, being a fashion blogger, aside from planning the itinerary, of course I'd have to plan my outfits beforehand too! I picked two outfits for different occassions - one for lounging during the day and one for dining in style at Diavolo, an Italian restaurant in Paresa Phuket. The restaurant just looks so nice and it has a scenic view of the beach. What a lovely, dreamy place for couples to be at!

During the day, I put together this easy, stylish and tropical look for sun-tanning or simply chilling at the beach or pool bar. It's also great to wear with a bikini inside because it's so convenient! *wink* I'm glad I got to pick out most of my outfits from FashionValet, a one stop shopping solution, lovingly handcrafted in Malaysia :) It's so convenient to have so many top fashion brands in one place which makes browsing and mix & match so much easier!

PS: Most of the brands in my outfit are found on FashionValet as well, 

Blue is the theme to match the clear, blue skies and sea by the resort. The printed skorts from Kiss&Tell is definitely a head-turner to wear out. Hence, a simple crop top is paired with the skorts so as not to overshadow it. The essentials such as my phone and money will be carried around in my little Mischa Amtrak Camo Pouch by Mischa! I especially love the camo print on this as it is not too masculine, thanks to the splashes of pink. Strut in confidence in my latest obsession, these ombre heels that has a little bit of edge to it! No outfit is complete without makeup so I'll choose my eyeshadow kit and lipstick from KATE Cosmetics Tokyo (Yes, FV carries cosmetics too!) for a natural no-makeup makeup look. Just a romantic outfit that will suit the mood when lying by the pool with my boyfriend. Ooh, I can't wait to lounge in this outfit already!

Mesh Panel Top - Soonaru 
Anggerik Skirt in Peach - Ruzz Gahara 
Constance Heels - Kiss&Tell 
Ceylon Oversized Studded Clutch - KLutched 
Classic Rose Gold Glasglow Lady Watch - Daniel Wellington 
Star Necklace - Cucito 
Ballerina Floral Earrings - grey/cyan
Love Infinity iPhone 6 Case - Fevrier Design

At night, I have put together this stylish, elegant ensemble with pieces that are all available at FashionValet. The inspiration behind this look is the muted abstract prints on the Anggerik Skirt in Peach by Ruzz Gahara. The prints remind me of tropical prints somehow, and it would complement he woodsy interior of Paresa Phuket perfectly. I chose a simple Mesh Panel Top to match to give it a slight street-vibe, a contemporary element to stand out from the cultural air that the place exudes. Wearing items designed by local designers puts a touch of Malaysian culture to the place.

Black and gold are the main colour theme for accessories as these colours stand out against the skirt. The clutch, necklace and iPhone case all has a sprinkle of femininity to its wild design. After all, it still matters to have an air of girliness when spending time with your loved one, right? Details matter as well so I chose these shiny earrings with floral details because in Phuket, it's all about going back to nature. I've been eyeing a DW watch for the longest time and my boyfriend chose this Glasglow Lady Watch for me which not only suits my slim wrist, but adds a touch of classiness with the rose gold rim. It's the perfect accompaniment to tie this look together. Lastly, maxi skirts goes best with heels so I'll match the outfit with my favourite Constance Heels in Electric Blue pumps from Kiss&Tell!

Fingers crossed that I'll get the chance to visit Paresa Phuket. All 22 years of my life, I've never stepped foot on a beautiful beach nor resort like this (Er, Desaru doesn't count lol). I'd really love to go snorkelling and swimming in the clear blue seas with the fishes! What would make the trip even sweeter is if I got to go with my loved one. Thank you for reading and I hope you'll get to live out your wanderlust dreams too :)
