In the city of Bangkok, everywhere you turn your gaze falls upon a temple. Ninety percent of Thailand’s population practices the Buddhist faith, a religion that encourages positivity, meditation, and balance both physically and internally. Whilst in Bangkok, my family and I, visited 6 of the local temples: Grand Palace, Wat Prah Kaew (Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho, Wat Benchamabophit, Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn ) and Wat Traimit. Each temple was more beautiful than the one that proceeded it and was unique and distinct in its own way. Though everyone was stunning, it was hard to not be charmed by the marble facade of Wat Benchamabophit, or the intricate porcelain detailing on Wat Arun. For anyone visiting Bangkok, I would highly recommend going to see at least three of the many breathtaking temples in this city.
Dressing for the temples was definitely a challenge. The biggest difficulty that presented itself was how to dress modestly (certain temples have dress codes), yet still be able to withstand the heat. The best way I can describe this outfit is boho princess meets city chic. These loose, printed pants brought the bohemian factor to the look and blended into the beautiful prints and patterns of the temples. I paired them with a white top which had a perforated detailing around the neckline. A white t-shirt is without doubt one of the most necessary wardrobe staples, but buy a more jazzed-up one, and your outfit will be made. The perfect shoe for trekking around the various temples? Without a doubt my Stan Smiths. They were comfortable, practical, and still managed to compliment the look. And the final touch to the look, a pair of rose-gold aviator shades. I love rose-gold and I love sunglasses so put that together and you have my dream accessory. Though in all honesty, I’m a sucker for ANYTHING rose gold!

By the time you’re reading this, I will already be on my way to Paris! It makes me nostalgic to think that I will be leaving this paradise soon, but all that consoles me is the hope that one day I can come back. Thailand is one place I have now crossed off my bucket list, but there are many more. More cities, more memories, and more beauty to admire!
