The Perfect Summer Evening Look!

No matter how you are feeling, you can never say no to floral elements. In simple words “flowers are mood lifting” don’t you agree? As I tell you to ignore my dark circles, I just love this look so much. The hair, the makeup, the dress, the accessories are just perfect. Considering its summer you definitely do not wanna load up on your makeup, to even it all out adding a bright lip always helps. Also added a bit of  bronzing tint, it adds a little bit of dimension and warmth making it a perfect evening look. As we were wandering around the streets of Vegas, I still wanted to keep everything practical and comfortable.

This floral top had my heat the first time I laid eyes on it, I had already started to style the top in my head while on my way to the billing counter. Although I have been talking a lot about how we obsess over black and never explore colors, this top made sense. I can literally wear this everyday and still make it look different every single time, such versatile pieces are key to building a great, long lasting, timeless wardrobe.

All kinds of pastel colors are so in trend and blush pink is one of its kind. And, I had to get this skirt out. This skirt was a little out there for me when I purchased, but I kept it anyway. This cute little skirt is one of my top favorites. That’s because, it looks great, checks off โœ…๐Ÿ“ all the trend factors, it wasn’t a big investment (although I would hate myself if something happened to this, so I take very good care so it lasts longer), it is comfortable, fits perfect and stays in place unlike some skirts that just roll right up as you walk (so not cool) which makes it more likely to be put to use. You must have seen me wear this before, way long ago on Instagram feeds.

Fun fact: when I purchased this skirt I could barely fit into it, but I loved it a little too much to return. So I held on to it thinking “hmm I should be able to fit into it some day”. Luckily enough I did, ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผand this time I had to pin it as it’s a little loose now.

It was just a glimpse of hope and it turned out pretty great. I have always loved matching my shoe with a handbag, this clearly is an example of that. All these products are easily accessible and affordable. I will leave a couple of links to similar products for you to shop, these are some of best deals you will find.

How to wear bright colors & bold prints without it being too bold?

One day I opened my closet looking for something nice & colorful to wear with some cute prints & all I could see was these same old plain blacks & grays (oh boy, if that isn’t the most frustrating thing ever!) Which wasn’t that surprising either. All I do is pick the same over & over even when my eyes are on something else but all that comes home are blacks & grays. Shocking, all I wanted to do was to get all the colors on the color wheel in my closet right away. But then, once am in store I would again end up buying the same stuff. Is this a curse or what! ๐Ÿคฏ Will I ever get to wear something other than blacks & grays ever again?! ๐Ÿคฏ That’s what even I thought, until now!๐Ÿ˜Ž Well, we are now about to break that curse! ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ

If you are one of those who always go back to boring cloths every time, then keep up. You won’t be doing that anymore after reading this! Now is the time to get it right and play with some fun colors & cool prints. ๐Ÿ˜ŒDon’t worry am not asking you to go crazy with funky neon colors(although, you should, if you like being experimental). Trust me, by the end of this you will master the theory of wearing colors & prints! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Talking Fashion couldn’t be any more fun! You must have already seen bits and pieces of my new obsession over yellows & whites on my Instagram, if not go follow me there for live updates. Since it’s summer playing around with colors & prints is so much more fun. ๐Ÿ˜€What does summer remind you of? ๐ŸŒžTo me summer is all about seeing places, roaming around till your legs give up on you, eating mangoes & having fun in the sun even though you might later look at your tan face & go “I should have spent a lil less time under the sun”.๐ŸŒป

There is no right or wrong when it comes to dressing, we all know that. Yet we worry all the time “I dunno what to wear, I have nothing to wear” has to come up every day!Well, I say, just start experimenting! Don’t stick to the same old that you think makes you look slimmer, taller, sexier or whatever. ๐Ÿ˜ You never know there could be a new black out there waiting for you. Wondering how to find your new black? Well, that’s easy as a pie.๐Ÿ˜‹

I’ll tell you a small fun exercise that you can simply do when you go shopping this time. Can you do that? Hello, you better do! ๐Ÿ‘‰You will thank me later. Once you do that you will no more be scared of colors & prints. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ This is how I found out that yellow is my new black. Stick around till the end their is a surprise! ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Coming back to how you can get to a colorful wardrobe, here is what you do when you are out shopping this time!

1. Inspiration Board: Create a Pinterestย  board & save all the fun ootd images that you like. You can do it on Instagram too, now that it’s got the save button. Just literally blindly save colorful outfits with different prints, patterns etc., You can also refer to my previous posts for some inspiration. Do as many as you like until you have enough to pick & choose from.

2. Understand The Theme: Now, go through all of those saved outfit images from Pinterest & Instagram. You will definitely notice something common among those saved images. That could be anything, a specific color or a specific stripe pattern that caught youthful attention or some abstract print to something totally different like a texture of a fabric or a weave that’s common in your saved images. Identify what that theme for you is, see how you feel. If your Fashion instinct is still not talking to you, just go to the store! Yes, just go to the store. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

3. Go For It: ๐Ÿ‘Go to your favorite store, add everything in your cart. You’ve gotta pick at least 2 different prints & 2 different colors. Something that you love it never dared to try one yourself . Because, you are scared it might not look as good on you. Here is your chance to wear that dress that you’ve always adored on others. Don’t get into the judging mode yet.๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿ˜ You know what kind of colors & prints you like from the inspiration board that you created. That’s gonna help you pick those pieces that you otherwise would never even consider for yourself. Now, try it on! You can see yourself how different the dresses look on you v/s in your imagination v/s on the manikin. Told you ๐Ÿ˜‰

4. Filter: You are now through that hard part of the fun exercise, finally! It’s gonna probably take very little to no time to filter, keeping in mind how versatile you wanna go this time. Once you try them on, take a picture if you want so you can compare yourself. I find it easier to decide when you look at all the options on your phone side by side, also easy to spot those odd lengths & unflattering hemlines in a picture. You will be now left with the most amazing piece in your hand. I promise, you will be thrilled to discover something like that could ever look good on you. And, here you were obsessing over nothing & held back from trying.

5. Let’s Celebrate & Inspire: End of the day all that matters is “do you love what you picked?” “Are you thrilled to wear it every chance you get?”. If that’s yes! I consider my job done & successfully โœ… done. l really would love to see what you picked & how helpful this has been to be fearless & happy with your clothing choices. What you wear is what you are! Do share or tag me in your pictures or DM me on Instagram personally.

Summer Bummer

Summers can get a bit cranky sometimes, but an outfit this trendy won’t keep you indoors for long. Have you ever wondered why summers are awesome? Well, stop wondering start planning! It’s time! pull out all those teni tiny cute sexy comfy clothes ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Oh yea, you herd me right ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I love this look โค๏ธ

I mean, why not? It’s got everything you need in an outfit for summers. It’s got the the trendy high waist with a classic white t-shirt paired with very few accessories like sunglasses (ALDO) ย bracelets (forever21) and watch with a cute lil backpack (ZARA) super necessary to throw in basic essentials.

I am a sucker for footwear, can never have enough. As you can see I paired these cute gray wedge like sneaker like ankle booties ( whatever you prefer to call it as. I reach out to heels most of the time and wedges are not a bad option for long summer days. Which lead me to these ankle booties that are painless and versatile, can be paired with almost anything from denims to skirts, even from day to night too.

I always like to stay on trend and play around with what I already have so I don’t end up buying everything each time, also keeps me and my pocket happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

Got these sexy pair of high waist shorts from H&M, that store always has what I need and they are so freaking adorable. Most of the time I get into the store wanting nothing specific, yet end up buying at least 2 items. If you have been there, you know what I am talking about. These high waist shorts are just perfect for the summers. It has got golden buttons on both the sides, adding that little extra fun element to the look (the way these buttons are placed kinda creates an illusion that makes it look like I am smaller at the waits and I love it). These are super comfortable, the fabric is absolutely breathable and has a lovely texture to it. Also, these high waist ย shorts can be transformed from day to night! How cool is that! Just add a pair of heels(kitten heel gladiator), change to a sexy off shoulder crop top or sweetheart neckline peplum would totally qualify for a dinner date or girls night out.

As it is a summer post I can not end this without saying “remember to use a good sun protection” and enjoy that sun kissed glow ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Happy Summer
