Spring vibes at Tierra y Mar

Hi there lovely people,

Spring season is finally here, and so is the question of how to dress when it’s 38 degrees in the day 22 at night.

So today’s post is about my spring OOTD and my mid-week getaway to this awesome restaurant called Tierra y Mar with the perfect combination of Goan ambiance and Spanish food.

My Spring OOTD

Spring Fashion 2018 chai & lipstick

I wore a plunge neck backless crop top. Spring means flowers, and what makes my top perfect is it’s a beautiful floral print for spring. Bell sleeves to keep it on trend. I paired it with high waist black jeans and a black strap faux leather belt and black pointed toe sneakers.

I styled my hair into boxer braids and accessorized with a two-piece necklace and my new favorite sunnies. I always carry a little cap to protect myself from the sun, nowadays I am loving my Baker Boy Hat.

I always make it a point to carry a mid-season trench, to be ready for the sudden weather changes that are so common in spring.

Let’s go – Tierra Y Mar

Tierra Y Mar is a 15 – 20-minute drive from Panjim city. It is a hidden gem that is not visible from the main road. To access this restaurant you have to take a small path through the Paper Boat Collective store.

We were pleasantly surprised by the deco that is very traditional Goan style with the coconut palm-thatched roof, and a very beautiful theme of blue and white, a little hint of Greece in Goa!

Jude and I were super excited to have discovered this restaurant and couldn’t wait to try out the food, hoping it would be as good as the deco and ambiance of this place!

tierra y mar review by chai & lipstick

Tierra Y Mar offers a very tempting Spanish menu which changes depending on the catch of the day and they have a very interactive style of order placement. They explain to you what they have, and suggest different ways to prepare it, so you can choose as per your preference. I love this personalized concept that makes it really unique and made me feel special 🙂

Traditional Exhuberance: my Diwali OOTD! 

Hey gals,

How are you all doing? Are you ready for the festive season? I love Diwali, it is one of the biggest festivals of India. This ‘Festival of Lights’ is a fun-filled time, with colorful decoration, diyas to light up the place and beautiful rangoli designs. All this calls for a perfect Diwali Outfit, bold on colors and high on accessories.
