As a little boy we had one painted picture on the wall that had palm trees all over it, along elongated beach and beautiful oceanic blue waters on it. I remember I used to look at that painting and in a few seconds I would day dream building sand castles on the beach and swimming in the beautiful blue waters. I would ask my mum where that magical place is and all she could tell me is that it is in the Caribbean far far away from here. As I grew older I got to love how the Caribbean people would wear tropical inspired shirts and shorts either in their towns or along the beach.
From then on I loved the style and with that I got to wear the Caribbean beach side style. For this look, I paired navy blue slim fit trousers with a leaves printed short sleeved shirt from Caribbean Joe , black velvet loafer shoes, black sunglasses and brown leather belt from Marks and Spencer .
Who said one can't have the Caribbean feel while your in the city?... Break the rules a little to live a little more :)
