Denim Free Summer Outfit

It’s that time of the year when you pack your jeans and warm clothes inside and bring those flowy lightweight dresses, pants, and skirts out. There are a lot of people who love wearing jeans every day, but I would rather prefer wearing cotton pants on a hot humid day than something that sticks to my skin. An alternative to jeans are loose weight pants like palazzos, high waist cotton pants, culottes, basically all sorts of summery lightweight pants. Brands like Stalkbuylove, Ajio, Vajor have such amazing cotton pants that will make you throw away those jeans.

I was desperately looking for high-waist cotton pants to pair it up with crop tops that have been lying in my wardrobe since ages. High-waist pant is a perfect fit for my body type and structure. Thankfully, stalkbuylove has some amazing pants for the summer and had to add it to my cart. Since then, I have been eating and sleeping in these pants because they are surprisingly very comfortable.

Crop tops are perfect for summer and all this while whenever I would wear one, I would add a shrug for my own weird reason. Now that I have my favorite summer pants, I can go cray cray pairing it up with my abandoned (not anymore) crop tops. For obvious reasons, earlier I was not really confident with crop tops and now I don’t really care much. I noticed this particular crop top in a fashion youtuber’s video and looked for it in the store. They had black, pink & green and of course, I got them all. Can you relate to that? You like something so much, that you buy the same design in different colours!

Crop or tank is the perfect top to pair with skirts and loose pants. A lot of them wear it with denim but that combination doesn’t really soothe my eyes. When I look at it, I feel as if there is something missing or the entire combination doesn’t feel like a complete outfit.

I know summer means light and calm colours but I just couldn’t find a summery colour. If you know me, you know I run towards the darkest possible colors!

Shimmer and Shine

Being a fashion blogger is most of the time difficult. Won’t say it’s a cup of tea! The most strenuous part of being a fashion blogger is sprinting around the city for shoot locations. Not all cafes and restaurants understand the work that we do, hence they don’t permit the same. There are times when you are looking for a dawn mood in the background which falls rightly around office timings. It becomes a bit awkward with people walking around and wondering what’s happening! This was one of those days. It was exactly when all the employees were heading back home.

Keeping all those aside, I decided to concentrate what I was there for and started with the shoot. The combination of grey, yellow and the colorful traffic was imposing. Don’t you think so too? This summer I am obsessed with high waist trousers and palazzos. I think they are perfect for the warm climate.

This long shimmer silver wrap top can be tucked in and tucked out as per your convenience. I kept it simple by styling it with plain black palazzos and black heels. There are so many ways you can style these plain color palazzos this season. It makes for a perfect street style trend. They are wide and incredibly comfortable and are also a perfect fit for every body shape. You can always experiment with colors and patterns when it comes to these lightweight pants. Palazzos can be styled easily with casual tees, crop tops, tunics, corset etc.

Thank god for reinventing the palazzos from the 70’s. My life seems better. Currently, curating outfit ideas for the summer season. More posts coming up soon!

I hope you enjoy the pictures and also don’t forget to leave your valuable comment down below.

The Summer Story

With the sun shining brightly over our head since the last couple of days, it’s just terrifying to think about leaving the house. Thankfully, the rain god has been kind and tried cooling the city down for few days. My already tan hands and legs are tanner than before. These days I don’t wake up with the help of the numerous number of alarms that start barking every five minutes but because of the heat and the sweat. This is my 10th year in the garden city – Bangalore and I am shocked to see this city to turn into a furnace.  There was a time when the city had no fans, leave alone air conditioners and coolers but seems like it’s time now.  Talk about global warming!

I love layering not just during winters but also when it scorching hot outside and the passerby think I am crazy. Oh yes! I am crazy!!

So here in this post, I styled this beautiful silk cape from Howrah Bridge with an off-shoulder tunic and straight black pants. Not really a summer color but eh who cares! I know I am obsessed with cape and shrugs. A layer of extra clothing changes the style of the entire outfit completely, just like when you accessorize your outfit. Not that I have a lot of shrug or capes but just the basic ones that are easy to pair up with any of my outfits. With the layers of clothes on my body, I also layered the neckpieces from my junk jewelry trunk. Both of them don’t really match but I like the combination. What do you think? One of them is a choker neckpiece from Zara and the long neckpiece is from TheLoom. They both had a little thread/tassel work hence the combination.

Hope you like the post!

5 Ways To Protect Your Skin From Dust

Dust might not seem to be that big a problem but it actually is very dangerous for your skin. It can be irritating when you go out and ruin your fresh face look in just a couple of minutes. Apart from the short-term disadvantages, dust can even harm your skin in the long run! But, you can protect your skin with the help by opting for the following ways as provided in the blog post. Check them out and keep your skin healthy.

#1 Use a scarf to cover your skin

Using scarf on your skin is the first protection that you can have to avoid all the dust particles to reach your skin directly. You can cover your skin with a regular scarf or a dupatta. One must always carry a scarf with themselves so as to be ready for any situation where one has to go outside. The most appropriate option for a scarf is cotton or a cotton blend material as it does not slip away and for the dust to reach your skin.

To protect yourself you can either keep a scarf in your bag all the time, which comes handy at all the time. Apart from that, you can carry a scarf with your dress and tie it while going out on your face.

#2 Appropriate sunscreens for safety from the sun

Sunscreens do a lot more wonders than you think of. With sunscreens, you protect your skin’s outermost layer with UV rays and dusts too. Sunscreens allow providing a screen on your skin which when washed removes all the dirt and pollution too. Normally sunscreens contain oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate in it which shield up the skin from any harmful products.

To protect yourself from dust and pollution you should buy sunscreen of Lotus, Lakme or Ayur that provide the best protection. Order these sunscreens with the help of nykaa coupons from the online portals to avail up to 30% discount on your orders. Guess that’s what others call, ‘Safety under the budget’.

#3 Keep it clean

The easiest and the most workable remedy to protect skin from dust is to keep your skin clean. Once you come back home you can wash your face off and clean it with a good cleanser before the dust enters into your pores. Not just dust but cleaning your skin will protect it from all kinds of dirt, tanning and other kinds of germs that can enter into the skin by anyway. To keep your skin clean is all you need to protect your skin from dust. To keep your skin clean you must have certain products at your home like- a good face wash, cleanser, toner, face scrub and a peel-off face pack.

#4 Consume Vitamin C

Dust settles in the pores of the skin and until and unless your skin becomes healthy from inside you will not be able to combat the permanent dust settlement on your skin. Vitamin C helps in rejuvenating skin, treats UV rays and keeps the skin healthy.

To include Vitamin C in your diet you do not have to rely on tablets but can include them in a natural way by adding vitamin C rich foods. Some of vitamin C rich foods are – guava, red pepper, orange, strawberries, kiwi, and blackcurrant.

#5 Moisturize it right

Do you know that moisturizing your skin plays a very important role in keeping the skin clean and dust free? Dry skin can be very harmful to the skin and cleansing also requires right moisture to keep up with all the dirt.

A well-moisturized skin is healthy and keeps it from wrinkling or aging early. The best moisturizing products include- good moisturizing lotion, night cream, exfoliator and essential oils. The best way to moisturize skin is to wash and clean the face and then moisturize the skin with the products mentioned especially at night.

Final Thoughts

Dust can be a very big issue in a country like India but if handled with smart care it gets easier to handle. Once you take proper care and use all the products that are mentioned in the blog you will be able to protect your skin from the dust in the correct way. So do not go out in the open without taking proper care of your skin.
