Summer is the perfect time to flaunt those floral prints, a great time to stop the layering trend and slip into something more minimal. And also to play with all those SS18 prints and colors we have been dying to try.
So in today’s post, I’m going to tell you all about my weekend summer outfit at my recent lunch date with my gal Albina at a super cool poolside restaurant at Hotel Park Regis in Goa, called Kai by the pool.
I wore a floral crop top and paired it with my favorite linen pants, perfect to beat the Goan summer heat. I love pairing up strong prints with plains, this really makes it stand out. I also went with a printed turban scarf. I advice two prints maximum in an outfit so as not to go overboard.
I styled my hair by wearing a turban, learn how to style a turban in a few easy steps HERE and my sunnies from Cocoleni which perfectly matched my pants. I kept all other accessories minimalistic and went with some really comfortable sneakers to complete the look, you could also team this look with a pair of open sandals!

Lunch date – Kai by the pool!!
Located inside Park Regis is a poolside restaurant name Kai by the pool. Albina and I discovered this place and fell in love with it. From its full of life ambiance to its amazing mouthwatering food, Kai by the pool can be your next destination for a relaxed poolside lunch or dinner. They eve have pool parties regularly in the evenings which go on till 3 in the morning.
The outdoor setting is so lively and full of color, it instills a great energy and promises a great time! The live DJ music really got us in the mood to party and Albina couldn’t help but groove to the fun beats.
We started off with the Kai’s special cocktail.
– Pineapple Pina Colada
Which were both well presented and super delicious. I especially loved how the pineapple pina colada was served in a real pineapple.
For starters, we ordered the Mushroom Bruschettas, Shish Tawook, and Korean chicken Tikka. All the plates were very well garnished and had even better flavors. We really relished the Korean Chicken Tikka (our favorite)!
When the heat started to get out of control we choose to have a change of drink and ordered the cucumber and basil vodka lemonade which I must say is the most refreshing drink I ever had.
For mains, we ordered the Penne pasta in arrabbiata sauce, as the plates are so copious one plate was perfect for Albina and me.
