Kimono Convert: OOTD

I have been a fairly recent ‘Kimono Convert’. I am not usually the one to jump on to the latest trend bandwagon, and it did take me a while to try on kimonos, but once I did, there was no going back. What to do…they are the easiest thing to throw on, and they make a simple jeans+ tee outfit look instantly dressy. So every time I am in a (wardrobe) fix, I just wear a kimono over my basic outfit and feel ‘put-together’.

Now you might remember this kimono from my Spring/Summer Haul. It’s been a couple of months since I got it, and it was my first kimono ever, but I have worn it like 50 times already!

So last week, when I had to go for a casual meeting, I just paired up this beautiful blue kimono with a pair of dark skinnies and white tank top. To make the outfit a little dressy, I wore my metallic ballet flats, and carried my current favourite Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 handbag in Damier Azur.

Check-out how I wore this kimono at the Grub Fest.

OOTD: A Walk In The Park

I think I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again (and again), I love me some top & jeans. The ease of slipping into a pair of skinnies, and teaming them up with my favourite blouse instantly results in a ‘happy outfit’. And that’s exactly the outfit I’m going to share with you today.

The printed silk blouse has an Oriental vibe, and when paired with a pair of dark blue skinnies, the orange of the top really pops (and rhymes…haha). Now I know it’s been sticky and humid and rainy here in Delhi for the past few weeks, but I wore this outfit on a hot summer day, and believe it or not, posed happily in the scorching sun. The only thing that kept me going was the gorgeous park I was in. If you want to have a look at what I’m talking about, just play the video. Coming back to the outfit, I kept the accessories minimal with simple pearls for earrings, a pearl/gold bracelet and my regular rose-gold watch. Footwear were my favourite pair of flats from Bata and I carried all my necessities in a dark blue bag from Zara. And yeah, that pretty much sums up my outfit.

Outfit Details:
Blouse & Jeans: Mango
Bag: Zara
Sunglasses & Bracelet: Primark
Sandals: Bata
Watch: Tommy Hilfiger

OOTD: At the Movies + Sarojini Nagar Haul

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you would know that I absolutely love maxi dresses. And another thing that comes close to my liking for maxi dresses is maxi skirt.

Although I do not have a ton of them, I do enjoy wearing the ones that I do have. And this beautiful one that I recently scored from the ever-popular Sarojini Nagar market has quickly become my favourite.

Since the print on the skirt is rather busy, I kept the top simple- basic black tee looked good. I also wore some nice white/gold earrings (another favourite of mine). And since we were going to watch a movie (Bajrangi Bhaijan- in case you’re interested in knowing which one), I did carry a teal cardigan (I get super-cold in the theatre) and a matching bag from Clarks. The top is my sister’s and the skirt, like I said, is from SN. My footwear was a pair of flats from Bata and I also wore my usual rose-gold watch (Tommy Hilfiger).

Indian Wedding Guest: OOTD

Remember how I promised to do a series of posts on Indian Wedding Outfits and then almost never followed-up. Well, here I am today, trying to fulfill my promise.

I am going to start this series by sharing this beautiful saree that I wore to a friend’s engagement a couple of months back.

Now just to point out, I always intend to wear sarees to Indian functions, but it just so happens that I do not always have the time/assistance to drape the whole nine yard. So when I had to attend a friend’s engagement, I was determined to wear a saree. And I knew that I did not want to wear the heavy, shimmery stuff, just something bright and elegant. I have a couple solid chiffon sarees and knew that the one in bright blue would look for perfect for a summer engagement party. I did not have a matching blouse, but hey, who wants to wear a matching one? Not me for sure. So I decided I wanted to wear a contrasting blouse. Initially I thought of pairing up the saree with a floral blouse, but for certain reasons, I could not get one tailored in time. So the next best thing was to raid my Mum’s wardrobe. And what I found was much better than whatever they sell at the boutiques today. I found a stunning rani pink blouse with intricate embroider in yellow/blue/lilac/gold/green. And I knew I had found the perfect blouse for my saree. Now this blouse is just about 20 years old! Yes, you heard that right! And it needed no alteration.

So the outfit looked something like this.

Apart from wearing statement earrings, I kept the accessories subtle. I sported bright pink lips, to match the colour of the blouse and I tucked in all my necessities (lipstick, mirror, perfume) in a little silk pochette. I was really happy with my look. What do you think? Do you borrow/re-design clothes from your Mum’s wardrobe?

Vintage Vibe: OOTD + Massive Thailand Haul

Ok! So as I begin typing this post I realise that my blog-posts have been rather erratic, which is clearly not cool, but for those of you who miss me on blogosphere (well, I hope some of you do J), hop on to my YouTube Channel (Clothes and Creativity) where I’m quite active.

Now getting to the outfit that I wore some time last month, it’s a classic tee + jeans combo, but I did add some nice accessories just to take the outfit a notch up. Starting off with the tee, my Husband picked it up from Chatuchak Market (Bangkok) and I absolutely love the cute little lambretta that’s on it. To me, the tee appears to have a vintage-vibe, which is why I love it. I paired it up with some dark blue skinnies from Forever 21. As for accessories, I wore my current favourite white/gold earrings, which you can checkout in this massive Thailand Haul. For shoes, I opted for my newest ballet flats in a dull silver shade. And the gorgeous sunnies are from Chatuchak again. 

If you want to get a lowdown of all the awesome goodies that I scored from Thailand, checkout the video below.
