The Current Obsession

With a zillion things trending right now, I decided to pick the high waist pants style. These kick ass pants are everywhere online and you can’t dare to miss it, even if you aren’t looking for one. I am currently obsessed with these pants and planning to get more colours in the same. From high waist ruffle trousers to culottes, they have them all (they meaning the online shopping world). I have been living day and night in these pants, not this in particular but this kind. They are extremely comfortable and you can pair it with both heels and sneakers as per the occasion. I am currently obsessed with them.

Keeping that in mind, another fashion trend kicking in majorly are the waist bags. I had bought one ages ago. The one that I bought from Lulu&Sky came with a sling and waist belt both. Since then I have been using it more like a sling bag but for this particular post, I decided to pair the outfit with the waist belt for a change. It’s pretty convenient. I remember the time when my father used to carry one around his waist for his phone, keys and wallet. And years later, this trend is back with a bang!

Here I am, in my favourite pants and the current trending waist bag. I decided to add my patent fashion touch to my current obsession by adding a long orange shrug to the outfit. I hope you like the post!

About the shoot:  Arjun was walking to my place from a kirana store close by and found few colourful houses on his way back. That’s how discovered the beauty of the location through his camera lens.

Enjoy the pictures!!

Restyling Project – The White Dress

Few months back, I had styled a plain white dress from The Label Life on my blog. If you haven’t seen this particular post, you can click on the hyperlink here. In the earlier post, I had styled the dress with a brocade shrug that was tailor made. With a pair of brogues and different anklet, I tried to give it a bohemian vibe.

Restyling and recreating is all about being creativity. I have noticed people who take pride in saying that they don’t repeat their clothes but I find that foolish and unnecessary. Experimenting with the clothes you already have in your wardrobe is not only fun but supremely pocket friendly. You will be astonished to know about the number of ways in which you can style a single outfit. Instead of continuously spending your money on fast fashion, try investing on something ethical and learn how to restyle it smartly. You will be surprised!

I don’t think I have seen any blogger (except for few) restyle their already worn outfits, so I have decided to take this challenge and restyle this dress. Also, every month you will find atleast one post that concentrates only on restyling and recreating trends with the already worn outfits. If you follow me since the beginning, you would have noticed a lot of skirts and shrugs that I have restyled divergently. That’s the key to a new beginning my friend!

Coming back to the post, this time I decided to keep the outfit very simple. I had this wrap top with a peplum end lying in my closet and so was this white dress since that last shoot. Few weeks back when I was de-cluttering my wardrobe, I found these two and decided to pair these together to see how it goes. It’s a very simple every day wear outfit. I added a pop of colour with an orange lulu & sky bag and a pair of strappy sandals.

Would you want me to do more restyling posts?

What Clothes To Pack When You Are Travelling

There have been times when I just wonder for an entire day about what clothes to pack. When you travel, there are so many do’s and don’ts that you have to consider according to the place you are travelling too. This is one of the reason why I thought I should write a post on what to pack when you are unsure about the destination’s surrounding and culture. And how you pack plays a big role in the outcome of your trip!

Especially when you live in Bangalore, weekend getaways are easy to plan. With coastal area few hours away, we think all beaches are Goa like but they aren’t. The culture and the people are different from beach to beach and from state to state. Goa and Gokarna might be similar but places like Kochi, Karwar, Mangalore etc are not so cool comparatively. Hence, the clothes that you pack also changes.

If you are unsure what to pack and still want to look modish and trendy, make sure you carry the right outfit so that you are prepared and happy. So here are few things that you have to make sure to pack –

  • Shrug – The most essential apparel that you should pack. No matter what, it always helpful and safe to carry one.
  • LBD – Actually not just a long black dress but make sure you carry atleast one maxi dress. What if the site you go to doesn’t allow short outfits or people around are not used to the beach wear. Maxi dresses are light to carry too.
  • Cotton Pants – If you are travelling to a tropical destination, jeans is the least preferred outfit (atleast for me). Cotton pants are perfect and supremely comfortable when you are travelling. There are such amazing summer cotton pants in various colours.
  • Jacket/Shawl – In case the temperature changes it’s mind.
  • A Long Sleeved Shirt or T-Shirts – The current trend is of tank tops and crop tops but there are times when a T-shirt can also be styled like a crop top and when necessary can be styled as a plain T shirt on pants, skirts or tops. Another essential apparel to pack.

You don’t need much space to pack these essential in your suitcase because all them are light weight, except for the jacket maybe.

Do you think this post was helpful?

At-Leisure

Instagram has it’s pros and cons and I shall share only the pros of this medium. I have met a lot of wonderful people via Instagram who are now my dearest friends and support system. There is so much talent in this world and part of it is visible on this creative platform. They say fashion is a materialised field. On the other hand immensely innovative, experimental and original.

I met Abhiruchi on Instagram and fell in love with her style right away. Her styling is what I connected to and since then we have been wanting to meet up. Most of the times, the city life turns you into a sloth on weekends and that was another reason why we couldn’t meet soon. This time we made sure not just to meet but collaborate together on a trending style that we curated in our own way.

The red hot trending athleisure word was recently added to the fashion dictionary and it’s here to stay for long. This sports leisure segment has become a casual and yet  a fashionable trendsetter. Sneakers and leisure wear sales have increased like never before in our country. I am not an athleisure person unlike my dearest friends Shivani Boruah. She is doing a brilliant job and you should check out her feed to know what I am talking about.

“Athleisure rules the runway, and the line between what is an athletic shoe and a casual shoe continues to blur. Brands and retailers must continue to feed this trend.”

One fine day I pulled myself out of my lazy business and met Abhiruchi and Arjun for the collaboration. We walked around brigade road to find a rustic spot and found this hidden abandoned rest house. We knew this was the perfect location for our collaboration. So, me and Abhiruchi decided to take up this trend and style it accessories our way. I went with “Bappi Lahiri style” adding a gold head pendant and an Indian ethnic waist belt to the outfit. Whereas, Abhiruchi went for some appealing tribal silver jewellery. Athleisure is all about comfort clothing and we are all about our love for accessories. Hence, the combination of both in this post.

Hope you like the post!
