Vacation Outfit: crop top and pants

Hey Girlies! Aren't we all happier than ever now that the weather is warming up. I for one love this time of the year. The sight of every new flower and buds in my garden , the first thing in morning, lights me up. And of course the luxury of  being able to wear anything you want from your closet, after like an era of same ole jeans and jackets, is like heaven on earth. Isn't it? I know you guys are going through the same overwhelming emotions  like me while bidding winters bye- bye.

Now coming to the point. Don't I always get distracted ? :P 
This is what I wore to the beach. I got the top from India, mumbai flea market( I don't remember how much probably $8) and the  paper bag pants from charlotte russe $20.
They are pretty much same color , so it looks like a set. A set is always more expensive, so its a good way to find separates in similar color and fabric and you've got yourself a set but at much cheaper price.

I love to wear pants with crop tops and this set is perfect for a beach outing. And don't forget a fancy beach hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the harsh sun rays.

What to wear to a summer wedding?

 It feels like its been ages since I posted here and I bet you guys missed me.

Anyhoo.... Coming back...
What to wear to a summer wedding?

Summer weddings.... Don't let the weather stop you from looking your best. You can still be your stunner self and stand out in the crowd

If you want a look similar to mine, here under are some tricks... Bonus - This look can be created with the stuff that you  already own
1) GO for an indowestern look with a western gown
A sequined strapless gown, a chiffon one shoulder  gown 
**TIP - any beautiful long dress that you already have in your closet, reuse it this summer wedding ( I'm a big fan of  refashioning and reusing the clothes that I already own)
This is an old gown that I'd been craving to reuse

2)  Go big on jewelry and I'd suggest go for traditional Indian jewelry
****Tip - Play with the jewelry that you already have, and use it differently . Here, I've used an earring as a maang tika

3) You can also team your western gown with a heavy traditional Indian dupattata.

Reusing a Bridesmaid dress and (heads up!) major ranting ahead :P

Hey friends!
Hope you all are having a fantabulous time with all the festivities and amazing #blackfriday deals.
And and and  I know this might be becoming a 'usual' on this blog, my recurrent excuse for being MIA from the blog. So in all honesty , as much as I love you guys , my amazing readers and this blog which is my baby, I also love taking breaks from the digital world every once in a while and  when I do so , I don't even check my emails, and although it might sound pretty strange and kinda extreme, I for one , enjoy that. Its kinda nice to take it all EASY, in an old worldly way, watching TV while chopping veggies, doing everyday chores at your own pace and not in a haste, talking with  friends and enjoying the time without having to worry what content I might have posted in that time, yes all this blogging sometimes gets very  overwhelming.... so let me just put it this way that I was enjoying my time in the real world but I have it all recorded for you guys in my little cam for you to enjoy and for your fashion inspo.....
My styling is pretty simple here. Putting a bridesmaid dress to use is possible and in a number of ways.
 Here I'm  going with zero accessories and a minimalistic route since the dress isn't casual style and the bodice is more structured, I wanted to keep it as less fussy as possible.
There could be million other ways to style it, for instance tie a knot at the bottom and show off some leather boots in a boho way.
I also would love to style it with a heavy indian dupatta probably next time in next post. Lets see how it turns out to be.

Wild is her Style

Dress : similar
Hat: here

"WILD is her style; in life, love and all things free..... . ."

Red is always a striking color, a perfect "pick me up" on a drab day; or when you're feeling romantic, its the color of love; or when you wanna make a striking first impression fashion-wise, the perfect color of choice, & well! also perfect for an  attention grabbing grand entrance!
right? so no need to shy away from this beautiful color this summer! coz RED is HOT!!

Here I've teamed my red dress with a brown leather belt, its the easiest way to give a casual touch to any dress and a straw hat

This beautiful women maxi dress will work just as well for a similar look

Chambray jumpsuit

Jumpsuit : Eshakti
Hey Lovelies... Enjoying the weekend?
Me too.
So today I'm wearing a chambray jumpsuit from Eshakti.
I have this thing for chambray, I guess, at the moment its my favorite fabric. 
Another thing I'm obsessing over are bandannas as hair bands. I never knew it was so easy to make a bandanna hairband, just fold it diagonally many times, until you get the width you desire and wrap it around your head and tie it in a cute bow. Ta- da!!
They instantly give your look a cutesy retro vibe.

Lets talk about the jumpsuit. I love cold shoulders and ruffles, and since its chambray, I had to get this. you know, at Eshakti, you can get any dress custom made, just submit your measurements. Although this time around I wanted to try their standard sizes, so I went with a small, which fits perfectly. In the past I've tried their custom measurements feature and the outfit came out great.

In the midst of desert : Death valley

Hey peeps, how are you all?
These pics were taken in death valley.
It was an amazing trip. We were in death valley for 3 days, we did camping for one day which was fun. It was  our first camping experience, can you believe it? & even though we were under prepared (no mattress, no bug repeller spray, carried flashlights but forgot batteries), it was still a lot of fun.
We heard coyotes in the middle of night, which alone seemed like an adventure for rookies like us.
It was really an amazing experience spending 3 days, without internet, or phone network.
At first when my hubby planned this trip, me and my bro were not completely sold, we were like, what can you expect from a desert. But boy, were we wrong!
Such is nature, never fails to amaze you. I wish we were a bit less lazy and could explore more. Although it was pretty hot which limits you more than you can imagine.
Do I recommend this place? : Hell yeah! 
Can I visit this place again? : Absolutely yes!
Here I'm wearing a sheer fringed top with a crop top underneath and women shorts accessorized with a necklace, aviators and y trusted leather bag
