One Tadka Martini please!

Now that the caption got you all curious, let me tell you this post has nothing to do with cooking, it has nothing to do with drinking and no! it has nothing to do with creative naming either (though I must say I’m mighty proud of “Tadka Martini” Patent material right? Loljk!)

How to pull of a graphic tee w/o looking like a 9 year old! Part-I

Hi everyone! Since I gave away the whole theme of the post right at the title let’s jump into the main content straightaway! 

So I thought there are four ways to get away with wearing a graphic or a cartoon tshirt without having to look like :

a) You are sporting a right out of bed look or 

b) a 9-year old basically! 

I thought I’ll do this post as two parts with two ideas each and here they are! 

For the two ideas of this post I chose a colorful graphic tshirt full of butterflies! 

1. Give the look some structure 

Adding an extra layer like a shirt or a jacket or a blazer is the easiest way to look put together! Since I’ve done the shirt over tshirt look several times (and since I simply wanted to wear the red blazer) I decided to go for a blazer 😬👍🏽 Take a looky!  

  
  

  
2. Give the look some much needed BLING! ✨✨

For the second look I kept the rest of the look the same and replaced the blazer for a statement necklace ! A heavy necklace or a pair of earrings really take such a pre-teen-like tshirt into a suave and sophisticated outfit! I know you might at first think it is crazy to wear bling with cartoon and graphic tees but once you find the right piece of jewelry you’ll love it! Take a peeky! 

  
 
    
  
 Outfit Details : Red Blazer – ONLY, Butterfly Tshirt – Gift, Jeans – 109•F, Statement necklace – Some Instagram account (forgot which one!), Heels – Zara, Watch – Fossil, Sunglasses – Rayban  

I will be back next week with two more ideas to look neat in a cartoon tshirt but until then make sure you try the two ideas in this post! ❤️ Happy Monday! 

Give it up for the Jumpsuit! 

Hi my lovely readers! Do you remember me ranting on multiple occasions about how a jumpsuit never ever ever fits me perfectly? Well I atlast got my hands on the jumpsuit which was destined to be mine recently and I couldn’t wait to show it to you guys 😍 so here we go! 

   

    

 I styled the jumpsuit with two statement pieces. One of which was this golden messenger bag which I absolutely love! My next style was :

   
    

   
My second statement piece was this absolutely beautiful silk blazer. I loved this look more because it added so much definition to the waistline and gave me some shape 😃

Outfit details : Jumpsuit – Forever21, Bag – BagsbyAnqi, Blazer – VESA Online, Heels -Westside 

Hope you guys enjoyed this short and sweet post 😃 I realised I was so caught up in doing theme based posts that I was never doing simple outfit posts any more and that’s why this one ❤️ have a an amazing week ahead. Let’s hope it passes as quickly and painlessly as a strip of chocolate wax being pulled out 😜 Enjoy your day!  

  
 

   

IndoWestern FestiveFun OutfitIdeas! 

In an attempt to make the most of the festive season while we are at the end of it I bring to you another indowestern outfit you can try for functions and festivals. Warning : whatever be your age this outfit will make you look (and feel) like a 12 year old (assuming you are older than that ofcourse) so be prepared 😋now that I have given you the heads up, let’s jump straight into the outfit!  
This ikat printed skirt was a piece I bought nearly six months ago. It has been lying around without being worn only because I did not have a top for it! With the skirt I had bought this mustard running material but who does tough things like going to the tailor and getting it stitched right? 😐     
So recently I decided it was high time and I pushed my lazy ass to the tailors and told them the exact pattern I wanted (courtesy : YouTube and Pinterest 💃🏼) and once the top was done, voila! A grand outfit was ready! 😍  

  
   
 This is a beautiful printed skirt with so much flair! It gives a school girly charm and makes for a great outfit to wear while visiting friends and relatives for Navrathri I have in one occasion before stitched an halter neck blouse for a saree and I realized halter neck makes your shoulders and whole profile look slim and that’s why I decided to go halter for this top.   

   
  I completed the look with a set a gold earrings (chandbalis?) and a tan brown pair of jodhpuri sandals. I decided to wear nothing on my hands or neck and thought that really made the outfit the king.   

   
   
I loved the way these colors and prints have worked together and created a killer outfit which is very wearable and affordable! Add a bindi and a set of three dots to the sides of your eyes and on your chin and who knows you might even be outfit ready for garba (a Gujarati dance form which happens through the night through all nine days of festivities) 😍Hope you enjoyed the outfit and more importantly you are thinking of ways to recreate it 😃 

Outfit details : Skirt ready made and top material – Shilpi Alwarpet, stitched by – Vasthra (my tailor), Joshpuri Sandals – very old bought at some exhibition by mom (for mom 😋), Earrings – Kushals, Watch – Tommy Hilfiger 

Have a great week ahead readers. You’ve sure started it off well by reading my post 😉 here’s a twirling picture of me like I have not a care in the world ! Enjoy! 😆 
  
 

Seasonal Transitions – Winter! Cold but festive and happy! 

It’s Monday! Lalalala 😍 I’m jumping with joy for Monday means posty-toasty day! Say yay for its Monday! ❤️ so I’m bringing the month long theme seasonal transitions to an end today with this exciting post about winter! Now winter as I’ve told you’ll several times before is pretty nonexistent in the tropical country I live in but hey it isn’t wrong to be fashionably prepared for a winter that might strike someday is it? Like what if you went on a penguin siting expedition and got stuck in the arctic circle one day? Ok..ok…what if your husband suddenly got a transfer to Alaska and you got to make lively there? Got you thinking dint I? Good now let’s move on and start of with our three looks for this winter babaayyy! 

First up, Sandhya’s look 

 
Now this cutie decided to look really chic and classy in her winter clothes as well and she transitioned from this warm pink light cardigan autumn look to her thick full arms body hugging tshirt with her wooly infinity scarf.  

    
 
Since her skirt was the staple she did worked around the other elements like adding black stockings and edgy black and studded heels. I think she looks like an absolute stunner what do you say?😍😘 

Also, thank you Sandhya for making this whole theme look so glamorous! It was wonderful and so easy and comfortable working with you. 😍 

Next, Anusha’s look 

  

Now Anusha retained her violet pants and her grey boots and replaced her grey sweatshirt and denim jacket with this light yellow crop top sweater! So cute! 

   
   
This sweater may have been short but it was so cozy and comfortable to be in. You could always wear a full tshirt to cover your midriff whenever you want to go cropped for your sweaters! The gray gumboots were perfect for this season as well and hence we decided to retain it for this look!! 

Finally, Shilpa’s look 

Before I start of with my look I’m sure many of you are probably going to hate it and so I want give away a few disclaimers 😂 this look is so laid back and it’s probably for one of those days you just want to run some errands in your locality and then go back home and re-watch Friends for the millionth time. That said, let’s get started 🙈

  

Well…what do you think 😃! For winter I retained my black maxi skirt and replaced the tshirt and denim shirt with a warm sweater! I also went from femine heels to my white kicks to complete the outfit 

   
 
  
So this was a sweater I bought from Oasap.com for a vacation and while I and everybody who would have ever worn this sweater would have paired it with a pair of tights I decided to change things slightly with this look! And that’s why I look like a fur ball – warm but pretty unshapely! Haha! But who cares about how chic they look when at home or when they are going nowhere significant right? So for those days you can try this look I hope!! 😍😂 

That would be all from me folks! I hope you loved this whole theme! Your comments are what keep me motivated so please keep them coming! Did you like all the looks? Which one did you think was the easiest to achieve? Do tell me! I’m all ears 👂🏼 love you! ❤️

Oh and P.S.: in case you were wondering, we thought it will just be wrong to have a photo shoot in broad daylight because it’s such a green summery place where I live and hence we waited for it to become twilight and then carried on with our shoot because we figured that was probably the only way we could get the winter effect!! Thank you Pranav for the awesome photography as always ❤️
