Happy Diwali: Outfit of the Day

Hope all of you had a beautiful Diwali. I sure had a great time with family.
Actually, to be honest, I spent most of the day getting our house in order, and by evening I was kind of exhausted. So although I did want to get dolled-up in a nice saree, I chose comfort over style (I think I say that a lot). But in comfort too, I wanted to ‘dress for the occasion’. So I came up with the following outfit solution:
Floral Maxi Skirt + Raw Silk Red Blouse + Statement Earrings
There’s something about this floral skirt that makes the whole outfit dressy. If you recall from this post, I had bought this skirt a couple of weeks back. It came with another top, but somehow the outfit as a whole did nothing for me. So I had made a mental note to look for a top from my existing wardrobe that would go nicely with the skirt. And on looking, I found this beautiful raw silk top that I had gotten stitched from my local tailor a couple of years back. So this whole outfit is the perfect example of ‘mix and match’. The best thing about this outfit is that since the skirt has an elastic waistband, it’s really comfortable.

Fall OOTD: Denim Jacket, Tunic Top & Jeans

We’ve been having quite nice weather here in Delhi- what with the rather cool breeze even in the afternoons. So for a person like me it becomes imperative to layer my outfit this time of the year. And nothing works better as a layering piece than a denim shirt/jacket.

I for sure have been using mine tons. Like the time we headed to HKV for dinner and drinks. I just wanted to keep my outfit casual and weather appropriate- so I started by pairing my green tunic top with my dark blue skinny jeans. I added the denim shirt to keep me comfy. I feel like I shouldn’t even state the obvious when it comes to footwear- because I wore my silver ballet flats AGAIN!  And to keep the outfit casual but classic, I carried my gorgeous Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 handbag. I’ve noticed that recently I’ve been opting for simpler but classic pieces rather than trendy ones. Maybe it’s got something to do with growing up (not old…haha), but I’m loving this new casual-comfy vibe!

OOTD: Durga Pooja

As much as I love to dress-up for festivals, sometimes I do like to give a casual spin to my outfit. And that’s exactly what happened on Durga Pooja this year.

Now every year we try to visit the Pooja Pandal at Chittaranjan Park, and this year was no different. But because of past experience, I know that wearing something elaborate while pandal hopping is not a good idea. Sure there are tons of beautiful girls rocking gorgeous Indian attire, but that’s not my cup of tea, when the first thing on my agenda is to hog on some delicious fish curry. ;) So to cut a long story short, I teamed-up my dark blue skinnies with a floral top that I bought from Sarojini Nagar a couple of months back. And since the weather has become nippy, I threw on my favourite denim shirt/jacket to keep me comfy. For footwear I obviously chose my silver ballet flats, and that’s because I cannot imagine sauntering in heels in crowded places.

Casual Indian Outfit

Now I know it’s been more than a month since Rakhi, but still, I am going to share my Rakhi outfit on the blog today. J

Rakhi is one of those special occasions where most of us get dressed in our Indian wear. So on this Rakhi, while rummaging through my cupboard, I happened to re-discover this gorgeous pink (cotton) chikan kurta that I had picked up from Lucknow, but that did not really get a lot of love from me. Now I like wearing cotton clothes, mostly because they are so soft and breezy, and this kurta was perfect for the rather humid weather we had (in August)! Problem was, I did not have a suitable pair of bottoms for it. I mean sure I could have paired it up with trusted blue skinnies, but I did not want that look. So I did the best thing I could, I pulled out a pair of white cotton pants from my Mum’s closet, and voila, I was Rakhi-ready. J

I did wear big jhumkas and a nice bindi to accentuate the whole Indian vibe. J

Let me know how you liked this outfit.

OOTD: Mad for Plaid

I know ‘Mad for Plaid’ is a rather over-played title in the world of ‘fashion blogging’, but hey, it works!

So now that the weather is a teeny bit nippy (here in Delhi), it’s time to bring out all the fun plaid shirts hibernating in our closet, because I don’t know about you, but for me, Plaid Shirts are an Autumn/Fall Essential. And that’s precisely why I wore a simple ‘Plaid Shirt-Skinny Jeans’ combo when I had to head out to the Contemporary Arts Week. The outfit was pretty basic- and that’s what I was aiming for since we were out and about on our toes for rather long. That explains the ballet flats as well. ;)

Jeans: Mango
Bag: Louis Vuitton
