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 🙂

Trend Alert: Plastic Chic

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!!

Yes guys! You guessed it right… Barbie is screaming “VINYL FASHION”!!!

From colored Vinyl to clear PVC, from coats to heels we have seen it all on the Runway Fashion SS18.

Vinyl has many names in the fashion world – Patent leather or PU, glossy leather and even plastic. This material does wonders in emphasizing curves. It has been questioned if it’s a risquĂ© or chic over the years. Today, celebrities like the Kardashian, Rihanna, Bella and Gigi Hadid have been spotted rocking the vinyl fashion! It’s truly a fresh take on chic – we call it plastic chic đŸ€©Â Styled properly you can really make a “cool girl” fashion statement.

So are u prepared to carry the most daring fashion trend of this season? Here are some of our favorite most wearable looks:

1. Vinyl Lace up Skirt

Vinyl skirts are one of the hottest items of clothing right now. To keep the look sober team it with a simple tee.

2. Vinyl Trousers

3. Vinyl Boots

Spellbinding Florals: A trend to FALL for!

I am a lover of flowery prints and for a long time blossoms were the prints for spring and summer, but now most of the designers have incorporated these spellbinding bloom prints in their Fall/ winter collection 2017. Wearing floral prints in a darker shade is officially a trend now and these prints can be seen on everything from dresses to shoes and bags.
