Wishing you all Happy Dussehra!
The most awaited Pujo has come to an end in a flash. After three days of continuous intake of delectable Bengali food and running to the pandal, coming back to the normal routine is extremely difficult. Life is going to be so boring again. Ugh!! Thank god for the long weekend, will recover from the Pujo madness slowly before the mundane practice begins. All I can think about is Diwali now. I am planning to document my outfits of the week on the blog soon. Mostly concentrating on what I wore for Durga Pujo this year as promised.
As a kid, picnics was something we always looked forward to on children’s day. My mother used to run a kindergarten school in Durgapur with her childhood friend – Krishna Aunty. Once in a year, they would organize a picnic for their kindergarten kids and we would always tag along (Me and Krishna Aunty’s daughter most of the time). There were games and prizes obviously to lure us. Badminton and cricket accessories were the mandatory tools that we carried with us to the park. Homemade food and juices served in paper plates and plastic glasses were so much fun. While our mothers would play Tambola – The Indian Bingo, we kids would be busy running around playing all childhood games.
In a busy city like Bangalore, it’s impossible because most of the parks here are strictly maintained and don’t allow picnics. Also, it’s difficult to find time to participate in something like this. A few weeks back we went to this prepossessing homestay far away from the hustle bustle of the city life called The Courtyard House. Shivani came along with me and carried few sugary cupcakes from home. I couldn’t wait to finish the shoot so that we could gobble up those cupcakes. The luscious green grass and the peaceful environment reminded me of those good old school picnic days. I always look for pretty places because that’s where I feel the most alive. If you wander often, you wonder always. The best place to wear your thinking cap and come up with brilliant ideas and also solutions to your problem.
Whether it’s a sunrise breakfast on the mountains or brunch picnics in a serene location, we always enjoy the warm air, good company, and great food. Not just that, you have to also dress accordingly because occasion with rosé and finger food is just begging to be Instagrammed. I wore this multicolored printed cold shoulder dress from Afamado and styled it with a pair of peach color heels. Remember to keep your eye on the weather app and dress accordingly. The cold shoulder dress is chic and yet so comfortable, making it a perfect outfit for a picnic. I also carried a pair of extra brogues with me to change when required. Wear something dreamy and pair it with relaxing shoes to wear all day long.
This is your ultimate guide to look cute for a picnic.
