Skirting Around Monsoons, Stylishly!

Hullo!Hullo!Hullo! Thats my hello with a hug in it! How you all doing? Having a good time?  Happy to be back and talking to you all. We, in India are enjoying the monsoon spell of rains with unyielding humidity, of course! I have been busy with work, making a life, trying to be optimistic…. well you get the drift! But most of all I have been waiitng to write to you all…..
How many of you feel you are stuck up with something, whereas you belong somewhere else? From what i have realised about myself, I am pretty sure my passion lies with fashion. Speaking about it, thinking about how I can style something…that sort of a thing!Even though I am doing it, I am doing it on a very small scale…

So lets get started with what I like doing best- speaking of a new way in which style matters to me!

Before we begin, we stick to the ritual of sharing something motivational!

So a lovely brown polka dot skirt paired with a beige top would conjur up different things in your imagination-but all great, I believe! So today I am going to be sharing my version of the two!
*Drum rolls Please*

 

A gorgeous way to dress up for an evening out, brunch or just drinks- this combination is classy! And Chic! And Feminine!

You can of course personalise the look! With wedges and your hair in a pony tail.Maybe braid them or a loose bun would give you that extra oomph, depending upon the occasion! Tremendously versatile, this look is sure to get those coveted ‘wows’ form everyone around you! Plus the colour palette is sober and chic!

Hope you enjoyed this lovely combination! Write to me, leave your comments, send your love!
See you soon!!
Until Next Time
Love n Light!

How to Beat the Heat this Summer! *Speaking Stylishly, Of Course*

Hello, Namaste, Sat Sri Akal!Hope you doing great! Making the most of a long, dry sunny spell, are we? First things first, there is no magical way to beat the heat, unless you carry a permanent air conditioning system around you 24*7 or live in the Ice Age! We are simple talking about taking summers head on in a stylish frame of mind- hassle free, chic and effortless!
So are you with me??
Lets get started….

Keeping the tradition alive, sharing a quote/mantra for you to continue being the rockstar you are!

Well, according to me, the best way to stay cool in this dreary weather, when you are forever pining for rains, is wearing comfortable clothes! Trust me, comfort is the first rule of fashion. If you aren’t comfy, it will show right through a million dollar outfit you are wearing! Stay stylish, but not at cost of comfort and this philosophy could not hold more relevance in any other weather than summers!


Well, hot pants/shorts/skorts are your answer to beating the heat this summer! And who says it has to be boring or casual? Dress up like there is no tomorrow! A cutesy lil floral number paired with hot pink hot pants are amped up with muted gold footwear! Is there anything else you need to add to the look? NOPE!

Of course, you can add your charm, personal style and that wonderful smile of yours to it! And trust me, nobody can replicate your magic!

That is all for now! I hope you all liked this fun and flirty way of dressing up! If you did, write to me and if you did not, write to me your suggestions!

Until Next Time,
Love n Light! xx

Hello pretty people! Hows it going? Are you spreading light and sunshine all around you? Are you falling in love with yourself, each passing moment! I wonder why do we even need reminders to do that! I mean, isn’t it painfully natural- loving yourself, being your biggest supporter has to be THE priority in life! I am certainly realising the beauty of being a loving and caring person for my own sake- the joy is unparalleled!!!

So, today’s post is about this most gorgeous (dark) floral dress that is like the star of my closet! And giving it a super tough fight is this beautiful baby pink leather jacket, which is absolutely STUNNING- together, they weave magic! And it is for you guys to see….

But before that, I have decided to share in each post, a unique quote which inspires me/makes me become a better version of my self/motivate me…. I mean you know how it goes! So it shall be our small little tradition to share some beautiful words in every post, starting with this one!

 

My lovely floral dress and leather jacket are waiting for you to scroll down…c’mon now..

Boots and floral dresses are a match made in heaven! Put on a well fitted leather jacket and you can take on the world!Its the sublimity of the whole look which makes it so powerful!

The dress is from FOREVER 21(they have some super amazing, super affordable collection, if you haven’t checked out already-both in stores and online). The jacket is from a local brand in my hometown Chandigarh, but you do get similar colours and fits from FOREVER 21! The boots are from STEVE MADDEN! You know my make up deal-I like to keep it fresh and minimal, mostly!

Winter Cold-Shoulder Ways!

Hello my adorable readers! How have you been?! Have you noticed that we are two months into this year… what exactly is the deal? I mean you wake up and half the year has passed! Like really….. who is piloting this super sonic time jet?! SLOW DOWN, WILL YA!!!!

Anyways, I am so so so excited that spring is upon us, which means no more dealing with winters, until maybe a couple of months later. I can handle that! How weirdly are we wired- I mean juts cuz its springtime, I have better moods, I feel strong, I feel energetic and hopeful..Does it happen to you as well?

I am so glad to put the winter gloom behind me!!! But there is one last winter sorta post I want to share with you.. cuz we are still transitioning.. so its like a ‘gliding into spring from winters’ kinda post!

So wat is the deal with cold shoulders in winters/spring? They are HOT!PERIOD!!
I mean you don’t have to make it less sexy, just because the weather says so!Let me show you how…….

The wine/purple cold shoulder top from FOREVER 21 is a beauty! And just perfect for a winter-spring evening! Striped trousers from TOPSHOP, add just the required amount of class to the whole look! And my lovely baby pink babies from ZARA are always welcome for a show off round!!

The complete look in itself, is sweet and classy, so the make up was kept as fresh as possible! Radiant skin, with natural eyes and lips, made it look effortless. Just a bit of indulgence with the accessories! A pair of shiny cobalt blue earrings to give this look a bit of an edge, which otherwise would have been a little too proper! And I don’t do proper, you know me!

So did you like the look? Write to me, if you did! And well write to me, if you did not! Hope you have a wonderful time!

Until next time,

Love n Light!!

How to Stay on Top of the Winter Fashion Game!

M I the only one bored of winters and the continuous wave of cold or its time to form an I HATE WINTERS club, officially?! The longer I think about it, the more I pine for summers. Since I cannot make time move fast, I thought of the next best thing to brighten my mood!

When you have the power to dress pretty, you can take on anything in the world!- Yours Truly!

So instead of coping up with the dull,drab weather, lets make it a happy one by adding some sparkling dose of energy to it. And I am pretty sure you agree with me on the power of dressing up in exciting colours to instantly uplift your spirits. Of course you feel great when you dress up great! So why not channelize the beauty of dressing up to sail through this dreary weather!

I got bored of doing the sweater, jackets and shrugs routine so I thought I shall spruce up my feed by turning a bit ethnic for this post. Now, Now…. I know comfort is of primary importance in the cold, harsh winters but ask yourself- every once in a while, sacrificing comfort for a dash of glamour has always worked in your favour, hasn’t it?! Well, now is one of those times, when you ditch the snugly layers of wool and come out sparkling and all shiny!

I am not a big fan of ethnic wear, but if its done right, nothing compares to the wonder of it. I picked up two lovely, bright colours- (ink blue and lemon yellow) for this post, which complement each other immensely. The suit fabric is some form of silk, with a bit of sheen to it. The duppatta is a self print spun fabric. Lets see what the entire look, looks like…..

I paired the suit with a simple off white embroidered punjabi jutti and a sweet pair of silver jhumkas(earrings) with a hint of turquoise details in them! And well I cudn’t decide whether to tie my hair or let it run wild!

I hope this post made your day a bit bright! Write to me and tell me how you’d brighten your days by dressing up!!

Until Next Time,

Love and Light!

How to wear a Striped Dress in Winters!

Stripes are an all season winner; they look great in summers and just about fabulous in winters! The thing about stripes is they look great on everyone…. and they are absolutely effortless! So keeping in mind how to dress up stripes in winters, I have my own take on it(of course!). Well, you can go ahead and pair a striped jumper with jeans/leggings or maybe a striped turtle neck with a cool leather skirt, you will rock it, I am sure!

What about striped dresses in winters?! Well, I am going to be showing you a super cool pairing of a striped bodycon dress with the right accessories so that you feel stylish and comfortable, all at the same time!

So a basic black and cream bodycon striped dress is the star of this post. Since the basic colour palette is neutral and two toned and could easily become a drag if left on its own, therefore a burst of a vibrancy is a MUST!

The beautiful pink-purple scarf from H&M is a gorgeous piece of accessory to play around with! I mean I have a whole list of clothes to pair it up with and I cannot wait to do so! In case you are not a scarf person, you can pair up the dress with a bright belt or a bold neckpiece!  Also I decided to stick to my Steve Madden brown combat boots to bring about a bit of edginess to my look! Go ahead… bring out your babies and flirt the look with a pair of pumps!!

I hope you liked this look and will write to me about how you’d like to go about using your stripes!!

Until next time,

love and light!

The Magic of Leather Jackets in Winters

Like the last few dregs of coffee, when you really begin to enjoy it- the last few days of winters are giving way to spring! Right when you start appreciating the comfort and warmth of the winter essentials, its time to part with them……. Its time to slowly shake the inevitable summer beneath the overbearing yet good-hearted winter!

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John SteinbeckTravels with Charley: In Search of America

Before we step into the sublime spring stilletoes, lets raise a toast to the last few enchanting sips of winters through the terrific leather jackets!

 

Winter Staple!

A Leather Jacket is a polished, suave and classic way of embracing winter fashion. It lends a certain androgyny to the way one dresses up. plus a leather jacket is a great, great investment to keep away the winter dullness in your style sense.

Personal Style Statement

If there is a winter style staple which is versatile AF, it is a black leather jacket. I mean with no offense to the other colours-black in winters is totally god sent! Case in point-my look for this post is as simple as it can get! Plain white T, Soft blue jeans,Brown Boots, a bright lippy, a black leather jacket and tons of attitude!

Be Bold. Be experimental!

Now, figuring out your personal style isn’t exactly rocket science. You put it on and you are comfortable and you like it in the mirror-VOILA! Go ahead, wear your jacket with a sexy lace dress or a flared tweed skirt or the way I did! But own up this amazin’ piece of clothing and make it yours!

 

I hope you guys bend some fashion rules with your leather jackets and make yourself proud!

Next time,

Mazel Tov!
