Before I start this blog post, I just want to thank God for all the lovely people I have met because of my blog and because of the cause and ideals I am slowly but surely making progress towards. Ever since I started blogging about sustainability in what we wear, everywhere I turn around I see only sustainable brands, ethical bloggers and people who have adopted slow fashion as a form of living and its just so motivating to know this community is not a very small one. Am I experiencing the Baader Meinhof effect (*Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one stumbles upon some obscure piece of information—often an unfamiliar word or name—and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly.) Probably, but look who isn’t complaining? Me! 🙂
A change in weather calls for a change in theme and a change in theme based on the weather calls for us to talk about the FLORAL PRINT! Associated with spring spirits from time immemorial the floral print is close to every woman’s heart and that’s why I chose this to be the first print we discuss in the new theme!
Having always been a representation of the free spirited woman there is something incredibly attractive, yet easy, grand and yet not at all made up about this print!
While western designers have used and over used this print for many years now, it is quite new in the Indian runway scene! A reason why this Anushree Reddy Lehenga was literally a runway-hit 😉
Using florals in blouses (crop tops used by Indian women while wearing a Saree!) have been around for a little longer!
Designers around the world have realized that women lap up anything floral. Why else would flowers be used in any and every surface used by women? 😊
(Floral headphones seriously? 😂)
So how did I incorporate this trend? Honestly, it wasn’t the toughest task guys.
No. I don’t know why I was holding onto my braid. 😑 in every single photo. Gosh. So moving on, I got this floral crop top at a Westside Sale. As I’ve said before, when it comes to crop top lengths, the struggle is real! 😰
So what was meant to be a crop top for a long- torso-ed person (see how I steer away from adjectives like tall, fit, et all?!) was in fact an almost full length top for me. Owing to this confused hemline, once again my high waisted red umbrella skirt came to the rescue! Honestly haven’t I overused this piece? The rest of the look was in subtle gold because I liked how the gold looked with my red skirt.

There have in fact been other instances when I have worn florals right here on this blog! Like this one below 👇
Floral tights – Imasocool or what?😎😂
I am so looking forward to putting up some amazing posts in the Prints theme in weeks to come. And in my constant bid to make this blog more about every woman and not just me, I have already asked my friends to submit pictures of any quirky fun prints they own. I would be more than thrilled if you all would also send in pictures with any print you particularly love to firstname.lastname@example.org ! Enjoy your long weekend Indian readers. I know I am going to! 💝😘
All images which don’t have my beautiful face on it are from Pinterest! 😉
So, roughly 20 posts ago I did three out of a four series post which had orange as the hero of the look. Do you remember? I won’t blame you if you don’t, I completely forgot about it myself 😝.
I thought now was the best time to complete this series because of three important reasons:
1. I got nothing else to show you guys
2. I got nothing else to show you guys
3. I got nothing else to show you guys!!!!
Hahaha. So buckle up to be tortured with this one. Yes yes I love y’all too. 😝😘
So for a change my tights were the element adding color to the costume. It was a lucky and a pretty find!. But I had to hunt for long to get a tunic to go with the tights. You know we enter this inescapable cycle of buying one piece of clothing and it just sees the darkest depths of our closet before we find its match? Well that’s exactly what happened to this tights 😝
I paired this dress with the same terracotta jhumkas I’ve shown you once before and the ethnic slippers which featured in my previous post.!
Hope you like the look. Have an amazing rest of the week y’all! Stay happy! 🙂
