When you dream of your perfect summer vacay you most likely imagine yourself marg(s) in hand on a beautiful beach somewhere with your Out Of Office ON. Early March, this was exactly the thought that was roaming around in my head (and if you’re smart and wanting to save some money while planning this trip I suggest getting started early as well). In August, Bermuda holds Cup Match which is probably the biggest multi-day event for Bermudians. And with my friend from college living there, and steadily giving me #livingmybestlife vibes weekly on Instagram, I knew I had to be in attendance for their liveliest time of the year.
A quick overview of Cup Match–The first day marks the end of slavery on the island in 1834 and besides being the first day of Cup Match, Bermuda BeachFest is also held on the same day. Somer’s Day, the second day of the Cup Match, is a historical day when Bermuda was discovered in 1609.
For days, the island celebrates the occasion by drinking, partying and watching (barely) the game of cricket between Team St. George’s and Team Somerset. Not only is the game a prime reason for people to come out, but the fashion scene is definitely meant for all to take notes.
