The only rule is, don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in. – Paris Hilton

Yes! don’t be boring! Be bold and pointless. I’m pretty sure Paris never made any relevant points in her life but she still is dressed up and well noticed by everyone. Christmas and the new year bring in a wave occasions to be dressed up. From Christmas parties, family gatherings, weddings (esp the weddings), etc, etc… I had a few occasions to wear this beautiful outfit, day or night, the vibrant color makes it easy to style and the flowy fit hides your undesired bumps 😉 (yes I am fat too) It’s like wearing a flared skirt on your shoulders. A word of advice, buy one size bigger if u want a relaxed fit, anyways the fit is not affected by your body type. If you do have flattering body type then you can wear a thin belt at the waist.

If I go crazy then will you still, Call me Superman – 3 doors down

Never was a fan of DC comics characters still in full awe of Marvels SHIELD and The great avengers until I started watching supergirl. Yup Karah is amazing, but CAT Grant is still the goddess played by Calista Flockhart. The best part was finding this top is that it flaps like the supergirl cape when I walk. perfect super power when you wanna escape.

#rethinkdesi Or Not

green-palazzo-pants1

Go ahead and call me boring and old school and whatever your little adolescent mind thinks of, But I will say it because it does bother me how you’ll killed the rethink desi style during Diwali! (Forgive me I don’t come from a generation where saying killed or slaying means anything good) Please don’t get me wrong but it is amazing how the bigger brands decided to drag the mature bloggers too into the #rethinkdesi trend. P.S. proves none of you actually do wear Indian ethnic clothing, Because if you did then you would know the wearing a saree over denim will have you tripping over the pleats as soon as you step forward!

When there is a twining effect with trends and traditions

Sometimes trends have overlapping effects. Just like when all those tunics with slits and maxis with high slits came into style and they were everywhere! nowadays the trend is to stick one leg out. Special thanks to Ciara who popularized it with her red carpet outfits and long legs. Well, right now I’m just a petite stout chic trying to adapt an international trend with a somewhat ethnic short kurta. Personally, I feel the style adaptation is a fail but the outfit for me is a pure comfort zone 😍 cotton tunic oversized shawl with sneakers and boyfriend jeans

Btw is that a union jack around my neck? I’d like to say no though the print is a grunge version of the flag. remember that time when the MOD culture adaptations were everywhere! yeah I just picked this one up because it was soft and no matter how you wear it, you probably will never see the flag

I remember maybe 8 years ago when street style started becoming that thing everyone raved about. Honestly! I was a bit lost about what was street style, probably I still am. I’ve tried to theorize and find a proper explanation to street style concept but it is very blurry. So let’s stop categorizing especially hippie and gothic styles as street styles. extra bold dressing and inappropriately paired outfits seem perfect for every occasion, off late it has been made appropriate by all major designers.

We all have our comfort zone when we travel. Some of us have separate clothes we keep aside specifically for travel, Like my dad who loves his double pocket shirts to store all his junk because it falls out of pant pockets. Yes! I do too have an obsession for pockets but it can be on any piece of the outfit not just the pant. But Every time I choose my travel outfits I keep certain very specific needs in mind.

  1. Pockets – yes because sometimes I wanna stuff those 200ml bottles of juice in my pocket
  2. Stretch fits – always, I’m even ok with tights as long as i have unrestricted movements. Once I wore my boyfriend jeans but the loose fit did save me from tripping over my own feet while climbing down.
  3. shoes – Need to protect my delicate feet from the dirt, bad weather, and long walks. I’m not kidding about the walking. Can anyone name one tourist destination that doesn’t involve walking, no wonder travel is good for your health
  4. small travel bag – Oh yes! a bag too small but big enough to be equal to the biggest handbag you’ve ever carried. believe it or not, for 3 or 4 days of travel, the bag is just big enough!
  5. Covering layer – Probably the most taken granted for by most people. My mom’s robbed my dad of his jacket so many times (But of course he’s always prepared for his wife’s tantrums). I’ve always either carried a light jacket  or a warm shawl sometimes both. you don’t have to carry an oversized jacket if you pick the right outfit layers. At times a good scarf can save you from the sun.
  6. sunglasses – Just because the weather is cold the sun won’t stop shining and I am half blind in bright sunlight.
  7. Jewelry that doesn’t have to come off– this is the part that makes me sick. Unless you are traveling with a specific agenda, pick out some basics. over the years I’ve preferred to wear my tiny gold or diamond jewelry rather than my fancy pieces just because I don’t have to take them off, even while taking bath.

If you have any suggestions or further improvisation on picking out my travel clothes leave a comment below.

A friend of mine once said wear the right shoes and you are dressed up.

reflection-sunglasses

In my case, I’d say wear the right accessories and you’ve worn your armor on a bad outfit day. It’s not like I don’t love the outfit, over the years I’ve just grown too health to fit into it anymore.Also! It’s shrunk length-wise, The rest of which stayed the same. I die for clothes with pockets and the was an amazing soul sante buy. Long before the place got ridiculously crowded. The layering is perfect in this confused weather since all the fabric is cotton. P.S. I almost dumped this outfit shoot. But I’m ❤ ❤ ❤ crushing on the sunnies and how can I dump the shoot when my photographer makes my outfit look good.

Sometimes I like ugly dressing!

Remember the time when ugly was trending. Sometimes I feel the trend is still around. The vetements are in trend theses days. But I’m always for keeping the outfit simple. Not everyone can be a Lady gaga or Taylor swift. And Honestly Off stage I can bet their personal style screams COMFORT, there is only so much you can do to be dramatic. The chain is a basic styling addition for me to the outfit, Every time I’m confused about what to wear I pick out the first long chain and wear it. I guess it’s my teenage thing because I never had enough money to buy myself enough accessories. So the long chain pendants were the cheapest fix  😉 But like always I’ wearing printed pants which are my crazy comfort zone. The tailored Printed pants are neither rigid like denim nor stuck up like trousers. They are a perfect comfort outfit.

Sometimes you just have to escape.

Most of the times I love to be in the city but sometimes it’s just nice to get away from it. No! really this isn’t much of a getaway and we are still withing Bangalore city limits! In spite of the EXTRA large population, the city itself is still very small. This is a little of Sarjapur road, the city is still filled with farmlands. Sometimes you don’t have to go too far to find quite spaces. Just a car and a pointless direction. I’m never much for the boho trend but the softness of the suede just made it the perfect relaxed outfit I’ve worn in a while. Plus the oxidised silver necklace makes it an easy pairing with a lot of clothes.

Have a great week ahead!

Have a great Sunday!

So after my small line up (Click here ), I will continue the styling of my BF jeans for a bit longer Until I can convince myself to get rid of those jeans. Mostly after 5 years of working in uniforms, formals and bare essentials it feels good to style the casuals into something more stylish for everyday errands and work.

The outfit I’m wearing in today’s post is a plain tee mostly. I wear that tee mostly for the colour, full sleeves and the feeling of being snuggled inside blankets. Yes! I don’t need blankets to feel cosy in everyday dressing. I have this tee in 4 different colours. This one’s always my favourite. The pairing of necklaces was an absolute delight. I heard it somewhere pain is a path to just more pleasure! And so the Skull and heart together. Simple ways to create your own layered necklace.
