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

Glam Up Desi Style!

Holaa! How you all keeping up? Existing or Enjoying? Well, since i am from India, we are putting up with a harsh, dry summer spell…. But we do have occasional spells of blissful rains, every once in a while! Although monsoon is just around the corner, you know how it feels like waiting for it……

So here I am, back with a new post! Well this one was shot sometime around Diwali(October) last year, but somehow missed posting it! Annnddd it is one of my favourite looks so I am pretty excited to share it with you all! Well its festive, glamorous and stunning!But before we begin, keeping up with the ritual, would love to share a nice, peppy thought with you… so it goes!

Coming back to my dress up post! This one is ethnic, but modern in its style! The colour is quite experimentative, but the over all look just sets it right(make up and accessories, of course)

*Drum Rolls please!!*

So this steel grey suit in itself is quite charming, but adorns a whole new direction when paired with pastel earrings and a nice bright lip colour! Even though the colour leans towards a shade of blue in the pictures, but trust me its more of a greyish-blue colour, with a very simple duppatta and not too heavy kameez!

well, the make up was bright and fresh- no too much work on the eyes, maybe loads of mascara-yes! A nice big red full lip(Mac Ruby Woo is an elixir, trust me)! Pastel jewelry, which I bought from an exhibition and a pair of nice bright red Punjabi Juttis/Mojaris! And you are good to go!


I hope you all liked this ethnic look! If you did, please show your love in the comments!
Till next time
Love n Light!

Floral Shirts and their Unending Charm!

Howdy! How you all doing? Keeping it awesome, are we?!So it has started to get warm in the days, with a slight nip in the evening air….classic transition from spring to summers! What a beautiful, welcome change from winters!How are you all coping up with your side of the world?

If there is one style/print which DEFINES this transition- its FLORALS! And today I am going to be talking specifically about them! They are charming, feminine, nature oriented and super fresh! Its almost like they grow into your mood and start defining it. You know that feeling when you FEEL floral, rather than just wear it? You get it, right!

But before I show you this lovely floral styling which marks the beginning of my summer soiree….. I have to share something which inspires me, hopin it does the same for you….

I Went Through One Of The Hardest And Worst Situations - https://themindsjournal.com/went-one-hardest-worst-situations/

So here is my gorgeous floral spring/summer take, doing wonders for me! Have a look!

This absolutely stunning floral diva from ZARA charmed me no end, when I first saw it! I had to have it! Its a chiffon number with a supple, light feel which almost caresses your body! Paired with simple blue jeans from Zara, I rounded off the look with burgundy pumps from FOREVER 21!

 For once I thought I’d go with a bit of dramatic make up, cuz frankly fresh, minimal touch got a little too much! But you can keep it minimalistic-aly dewy for a day look, since this appears more like an evening style! Bright red, arresting lips and not too heavy on the eyes seemed perfect to me!

Hope it got a thumbs up from you guys!! Write to me if it did!
I shall be back super soon with another piece of my fashion crazy mind!

Until, then

The Cutest Floral Dress and Leather Jacket Combination Ever!

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!

Hope you all liked it! Let me know in the comments below!! Until next time,

The EverGreen Sweater-Jeans Combination for Winters

A smart fitting sweater and jeans combination can literally soar up your style quotient any time of the day in Winters. And bonus for picking up a lovely bright colour!  I know for some people it is out-rightly hard to dress up fancy in winters, given that the comfort level goes a bit snazzy because of all the cold, but even a simple sweater-jeans look can work wonders if done right.

Now there are a few cardinal rules of putting together a sweater- jeans look, not different from other rules of fitting. If you plan on wearing a loose, baggy sweater- for the love of style sense pair it up with skinny jeans or jeggings! Baggy does not get along with another baggy! Whereas If you plan on wearing a well fitted sweater, you have the absolute authority to pair it up with skinny jeans, jeggings and bottom flared trousers or even palazzos! There you go….. You know the trick, right!

So without further ado, let me show you the neat trick of doing sweaters and jeans together….

A bright red sweater from Dorothy Perkins and a washed out blue jeans with pearl embellishment gave me the ultimate winter fashion goals. The Contrast Colours bring out the best in each other and give an over-all vibrancy to the entire look.

You can go easy on the accessories and maybe experiment by topping the look with a Trilby hat and baby pink pumps(which BTW are a steal from Zara). I think the purple Forever 21 trilby looks absolutely sensational for a brunch/lunch date!

 

Hoping you’ll take pointers from the look and go on to slay the sweater-jeans look!

Until Next Time,

Mazel Tov!

PRINT ON PRINT!

Print on Print is a nuanced style of dressing up. It has the potential to go awfully wrong if not done keeping in mind the right proportions. I know I am sounding pretty calculative here, but honestly pairing prints is a calculative risk. The key to doing it right is balance! Yep, the yin and yang of style karma has to be kept in mind for a clean, polished look!

Well, for the faint-hearted, there are some combinations which never go wrong( not forgetting the balance though!). Stripes and checks, polkas and stripes, polkas and florals……. If done in the right proportion, these combinations are never gonna let your fashion game down!

So today’s look is all about fresh, soothing print on print game, which in this case happens to be a floral & stripes combo! I have tried to keep the look fuss free by using a single color palette for the combination to appear more put together! I chose the color Blue for its vibrancy and crisp-ness, with a slight contrast in the baby pink pumps!

Even though this style screams summer, there is absolutely no harm in trying it out for Autumn/Fall brunches!

Come on in then……

FANCY VINE

This vine ESPRIT satin blouse is so dreamy and gives a super regal look on its own. I chanced upon this ruffled hem pale pink skirt lying absolutely ignored in my closet( talk about the flip side of having wayy too many clothes!) and decided to shimmy it a bit by pairing it with vine blouse. Trust me, I am still marveling at the results! 😉
