As mentioned in my earlier Phuket posts, I was hooked and completely in love with the local street clothing finds at Phuket since day one, these harem pants being the best and the cheapest of my finds. Every female tourist in Phuket was wearing these harem pants, and its no wonder as they are loose, comfy and the print designs on them are so exotic and elegant! To be more accurate, most tourists (a large portion were westerners) were wearing them as a pant, but I being the five foot three (160cm) small dwarf that I am, they fitted perfectly as a jumpsuit. I am not sure whether to laugh or cry at this, but the fact remains that this piece was immensely comfortable and made me feel like an Arabian princess floating about the streets. Paired with my new leather sandals from CC Double O, I felt decidedly middle eastern and foreign in this get-up. It was easily one of my favorite outfits of the trip, and I knew I had to find a perfect location to shoot this in. When I saw Karon Temple with its gold, red and blue-green hues, I was immediately convinced this peacock feather-like print would complement the temple grounds perfectly and I was not wrong.

The sun… sand… and sea! I can’t get enough of these three things. Paradise must be a beach island with filled with these three elements and all the contentment in the world. Once again through these photos, I am back at Karon Beach, re-living the moments I spent there and missing this place so much more than I thought I would! I had oodles of fun on this shoot, naturally, as waves and I are best friends and I love playing in the sea. Every single moment spent on this beach was pure magic. I have never felt so alive! There must have been something about the pure bliss radiating from the other wonderful humans sharing the beach, as well as inexplicably delightful teasing waves that made this one of the best experiences of my trip.
