Skirting it out A-line at a time ;) 

I share a love hate relationship with skirts! When I’m in the store I always steer towards the skirts section and fall in love with a lot of pieces and then I start thinking about where I’ll wear them and about what a pain it is to ensure I’m waxed or shaven each time I reach for a skirt when I can slouch in pants all day without a care in the world and I slink away from the skirts section feeling defeated! Haha! But that being said I also indulge every once in a while throwing all caution to wind and just buying the damn skirt because it is too awesome to not! And that’s precisely what happened when I saw this skirt on a 70% discount on Amazon! A brilliant looking skirt in a style I don’t have (A-line) at a 70% off too? I’ll have 10 of that please! 😉 Here’s what I bought! 

  
This was a high waisted skirt from a brand called Bysi. I always steer clear of high waisted clothes because I feel I don’t have the waist or the hip to pull them off but I loved this print and the style of a belt/buckle like patch at the waist which gives it a cinching effect! 

   

 
I absolutely love big geometric prints and since my style is always about accentuating one aspect of the outfit and keeping the rest of the outfit simple, I chose to team the skirt up with my plain black t-shirt. A little bling came in the form of this link chain and my gold TH watch! 

   

The clutch, my sister’s was a last minute addition because I thought the tomato red/orange went well with the peach tones in the skirt! For shoes I wore my trusted nude pumps and completed the look! 

 
  

This skirt is perfect for a evening dinner or a party (if you unlike me go to parties!) because it looks really bold and beautiful but not in a very in your face kinda way! 

Outfit Details – A-line skirt :  Bysi from Amazon.in (psst…just checked, it’s still on a 70% off! Run!) Black T-shirt : Globus, Nude Pumps : Westside, Gold link chain : Gift, orange Clutch : Capresse, Watch : Tommy Hilfiger 

That would be all from me folks! Will try and post a bit more regularly henceforth 🙂 A lot of interesting things are lined up for the blog 😀 hope you survive the week! Bye ❤️

Pastels and Pops!

An outfit of the day post after really long!

image

Wore pastel over pastel over pastel to work today (that would be my top, trouser and shoes 😛 ) I simply love this simple boat neck top with delicate bead work all around its collar and sleeves. Because being sober and classy is just not in my blood I HAD to add some color to the outfit so I added this pretty bead necklace whose color was an darker shade of the lavendar of the top.

image

Yes, yes, when I smile…I SMILEEE. Hahaha!

While I personally thought my beads pretty much rocked the scene, some people *cough cough sister cough* felt the beads spoilt the whole look. Hellooo look how dull it looks without the necklace

What do you guys think of the look and about adding that sudden pop of color to be otherwise sober and sophisticated corporate attire?

Orange is the new black! ~3

Welcome one, welcome all to part 3 of my 4 part post where I romance orange; which in my opinion is a weird color to fall so in love with. Well what can I say, weird people love such weird things. So here we are. 😀

This was one of those days when no one was around at home to take a snap and I had to do it myself 😦 hence the bad selfies.
This is one blouse which is so versatile. I wear it to work where it passes as formals when teamed with my black trousers and it transforms pretty easily as a party wear because of those frills and its general cuteness. 😛 haha.

So, I was heading for a fancy lunch (so I would like to think) last weekend and to get a bit dramatic, I paired this dress with a pair of earrings I absolutely love. A fairly recent acquisition I would say.

image

Its translucent, reflects light, very shimmery and looks good. 🙂 Thank god for the amazing stuff one can pick up street shopping in India. 😀
The shoes I wore is the same nude pumps I wore for my previous post. A photo for reference anyhow.

image

Since this is an orange which almost edges on nude there is so much room to get creative with makeup. So I decided to do an elaborate cat-eyes with eyeliner. Came out pretty decently for a first try I must say. But no pictures because such close selfies look plain scary. :/

image

I think this look is adorable gone awry by my poor photography skills. 😛 (Yes thats boasting covered by subtle insults..lol) Anyway what do you guys think? Do tell me 😉 ❤

Orange is the new black ~2

Hellooo all you lovely people! 🙂 how has your week been so far? My week…erm…let’s just say the lesser said the better. 😛
So as part two of my four part series I bring to you my second orange look 😀

So I bought this top from an Indian shop called “AND” a few months ago and the place I was going to this weekend seemed fun enough to release it 🙂 I tried a small mix-&-match, so I paired the halter neck top with something as traditional as the jhumka.
The jhumka is a traditional Indian earring worn by ladies for festivities and occasions. While it comes in various shapes, sizes and materials these days, they were originally made out of precious metals like gold and silver.
Coming back, so the current rage in my city is jhumkas made out of terracotta. When such adorable trends come by, why won’t I binge? Ofcourse I did 😀

They look pretty, yah? 😀
I kept the rest of the look simple. Since this blouse was pretty long, it covered my er..rather large behind 😛 so I chucked my jeans and wore it with a pair of super-comfy black above-the-ankle tights. These are truly the all purpose, fully exploited piece of clothing I own. Gym? Work? Casual outing? Shopping? I wear these tights every-frikkin-where. LoL.
The footwear was also pretty toned down. Wore these beautiful nude pumps I bought a while ago.

I love love luuurrvvee the cut work on these shoes 😀

Oh oh oh..and while we are at it, since my watch happened to match so beautifully with the look I thought why not show you guys that as well!

This fossil is one of my prized possessions 🙂 first gift to myself from my salary type of special!!! Its pink mother of pearl dial goes so well with any shade of pink, orange and red.

So what do you guys think? What would you pair halternecks with? Do tell me ❤
