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!

Summer Fresh- Bit of Tangerine and Lots of Stripes!

Hello my precious darlings!!! So,so, so good to be writing to you all after ages! I am so sorry for being MIA, but trust me occupied with so much the moment! Anyways, here I am…. with a fresh take on summer fashion, when actually half the summer has gone by!

So as usual, starting my write up with a nice picture,sourced through Pinterest!

 

So this look that I am going to be talking about/showing you is simple, breezy and winsome(like all others!) A tangerine spaghetti top, paired with a contrasting blue&white striped flared cotton trousers,with a dash of white stilettos!You can work it for a brunch/lunch/drinks date…basically whichever way you want!

About the hairdo and makeup- you can keep it natural, fresh and radiant with bare minimum products. I probably used a BB cream or a foundation, some concealer, lots of mascara and a neutral lip colour. As always I like my hair fuss free and smooth. You can go for a nice, perky pony tail look with this, which is definitely going to amp up the look, plus brownie points for the comfort!

 

I hope you enjoyed the look, and trust me when I say fuss free, it actually is! And super stylish, nevertheless!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Happy Summering, my friends! See you soon!
Love xx

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

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 Dress Corporate like a Boss!

Hello my sweet people!! This is the longest I’ve been without writing to you all, I guess and trust me I missed writing! So here I am… Back with a fresh idea to sort you out with your dressing woes!

Well, this time happens to be a special case of dressing up for your job! I know,we absolutely cannot generalize dressin-up for work, but trust me there is one foolproof way to dress up for every job ad you just cannot go wrong at it!

So it is a black n white case, but with a dash of exuberance, which will just put the whole idea of dressing up in place……let me show you how!

 

Who says Black and White has to be boring, specially when you have a lovely, volume sleeves polka dots shirt from H&M at your disposal, shoo-ing off boring, basic white shirts! A sweet little bow detail around the neck makes it even more endearing! Well, a black basic pant can go along with all the party on ‘top’!

 

What brings absolute sheen to this whole outfit is a pair of muted gold pumps and lovely bright lip colour!Adding bright choices in accessories and make up is the best way to fuel some life into a boring outfit….. and it doesn’t even appear OTT, cuz its done right!

I hope you liked this cute little way of dressing up for work! Let me know in the comments below, what your idea of ‘basic-office-wear-with-a-dash-of-extra’ and then we can all exchange notes!!!

Until next time,

Love n Light!

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!

Lace & Dark Florals = TOUCHE!

There is something mysteriously sexy about Autumns/Falls! With Halloween, fogs  and decidedly unpredictable weather, Autumns have a unique charm to them. Here in India, its the onset of festivities- bright and vibrant times to look forward to!

It is also the time of re-tapping into the potential of dark hues and smoldering contrasts. Its the perfect time to enjoy the duality of nature- summers during daytime and (almost) winters during the night! Its the time to go intense with your style, but not quite! Just like the season, the fashion game is a bit boxed. There is an element of holding back with the style, only to easily slip into the cold-hearted winters! Its the time to be your foxy best, and what better than a combination of LACE  and DARK FLORALS to set the tongues wagging?!

Both lace and dark florals have a seductive appeal to them, which is just right for the fall season. Both of them are sensuous, feminine yet strong style statement packages, which is the reason I decided to flirt with this ravishing lace midi dress from ZARA!

 I’ll show you how………
