Casual Chic on Fleek Look

Hi my lovely readers! I’m back after quite a while with my next post but before that I got to tell you why I was MIA! I live in India in a city called Chennai which became pretty famous globally last week for a tragic reason. We were ravaged by extremely heavy cyclonic rains and floods and in a matter of a couple of days the city was left looking like a dumpyard. So many people lost their lives and a thousands more their homes. Chennai traditionally being a very dry city (remember how I always say we have summer throughout the year?) is not built for such rains and so the water levels reached 10-15 feet heights in several low lying areas causing massive damage. But as any positive story goes, here’s the part where there’s light at the end of the tunnel! 😊 The people of chennai showed such solidarity in relief and rescue missions. NGOs, corporate offices, actors and ofcourse the Indian Army came together and did such phenomenal  and unbelievable work rescuing people, distributing food and other survival kits, conducting medical camps, etc and while life to come back to normalcy is going to take several months, these rains and floods have shown what a city chennai is, it is secular, giving, and so sensitive and independent. We will be up and raring to go in a while but until then please make sure you keep us in your prayers. 😇 

So I kept my look super simple today because I’m still not in a position to shoot elaborate theme based posts! This would ideally be a look you can sport on a day full of running errands or simply a day out at the mall with your friends! Here goes! 

    
    
    

 It was such an easy and loungy and a no-brainer sort of look and it took me just a few minutes to put together which is usually the time late-lateefs like me get before heading out 😂 so if you are like me make sure to stock up on a lot of basic tshirts like this one because they are so versatile and it is almost like you have a new outfit every time you wear them. 

Here I paired this basic black tee shirt with my trusted light blue jeans and a statement neck piece. The rest of the look was simple in muted gold tones. Just adding a statement necklace or a scarf or a shirt over such tee shirts elevates the simple and basic outfit into something so much more suave and sophisticated! 😍 

Outfit Details : Black T-shirt – Forever 21, Blue Jeans – 109•F bought at Lifestyle, Necklace – FabIndia, Earrings – Forever 21, Sandals – Zara 

That would be all from me for today’s post folks! Make sure you have an amazing week ahead! And tell me you had a ball! ❤️😄

   

Fighting Blues!

Are cringing and complaining the first reactions you have on waking up on a bright Sunday morning too? Is that like..normal? The thought that the weekend is 50% over just beats out the “the glass is half full” kinda optimism out of me. So to help you (and me for that matter) push those sad Monday blues out, I’m showing you how fun blue can get with this “all blue” outfit.

After months and months of searching tirelessly, I at last found the right pair of light blue jeans readers. And I honestly couldn’t have been happier.

I paired my perfect blue jeans with this midnight blue with white star printed shirt and with my blue Aldo loafers.
Sometimes I find that going high on various shades of a single color works after all when we tread with caution and don’t go over board. Do try the technique with soft shades like blue, peach, cream, green etc and SHOW ME!

image

In this case for example, a kind of balance was restored, or so I would like to think, by bringing in many aspects of white into the look. Any pastel shade would actually do the trick, black and white being the perfect colors that they are, would do the trick even better!

That brings us to that one accessory which I’ve never shown on this blog though it has been with me for ages now, my Rocky-S bag!

Woohoo dont you like love that bag ? What with the golden zippers and metal rings it gives the whole bag such a “I’m the boss” look.

Ever since I went public about this blog, I have had some amazing suggestions about how to make my blog work better and reach out to more people effectively. I’m so glad I have such a receptive creative and helpful bunch of friends. Shout out to one friend in particular who just killed it (nailed it more like) with his amazing ideas about how Frillthrills could grow into a household name. Jaydeep I’m totally capitalizing on the free advise you gave me and the ones I am going to get soon. Thank you. 💝 after all its not every day you meet your extra ordinarily smart friend who has a flair for ideas about literally everything under the sun. Remember that story about being able to sell refrigerators to Eskimos? That’s my friend for you. 😎

Outfit details :

Light blue jeans : 109° F (Lifestyle), Starry shirt : Fast fashion Besant Nagar (have you checked out that store already?) Bag : Rocky S (Shopper’s stop), Shoes : Aldo, Watch : Fossil

Have you guys gone high on one color like I did? What contrasting or complimenting color did you guys use to subtle down the look then? Tell me! Show me! 😀 have a great week. *grumble*

Colorblocking and Subtlety!

As much as I like to go really bold with color blocking I’m still learning and taking only my baby steps

I went to work last Friday wearing a subtly colorblocked outfit which ended up with people telling me the color combination looked pretty good. So I’m happy! 😜

image

I have worn this denim shirt one before here!
For this look I paired it with a plain peach T-shirt and black jeans.
From a single staple black T-shirt I’ve gone onto owning a pink, a peach and a white plain T-shirt. I love the fact that they can be so effortlessly paired and lend themselves so well to be layered or when we want some other piece to be the hero of the look!

image

While for the photoshoot I tied up the bottom of my denim shirt-turned-jacket, I had it fully open during the rest of my day. 😆

A bit too casual for office ya think? I thought so too. LOL! 😂 Oh well! What has been done has been done. So long folks 😘😜 Have an amazing week y’all!

Spotty Friday!

Hey you guyssss!

image

Wazzzaaa!?! So I actually tried a trend from my imaginary checklist of trends-to-try and boy did I love it :mrgreen: say hey to animal prints! ✋
I just had to pose for a picture with my coolers on because they have animal print temples too ( yes the parallel beams on the shades which perch above your ears are apparently called temples. #thankyougoogle 😂)
So let me show you a complete version of the OOTD

This leopard print blouse has been lying in my closet untouched for quite a while now because I’ve been apprehensive about wearing it – courtesy – my mom. Every time I take this blouse out she does a perfect eye roll and goes like “why would anyone in their right minds walk around looking like an animal.” (I guess she completes the paragraph in her brain like “how creepy would it be if a leopard dresses up like a  human” …but yeah she doesn’t say it…and as long as she doesn’t, I’m happy 😝)
So I paired this printed top with my favorite pair of jeans I bought more than a year ago from Levis. Hope you trust me when I say this; there has not been a single pair of jeans which has fit me this well since my childhood.. Hahha. :mrgreen: One thing I’ve learnt about jeans through the years is that we can equate it to buying sports shoes. Though the brand, the cut etcetera may be exactly the same, the fit sometimes differs, so the key is just definitely trying them on and checking as against buying them online or without actually trying them. Been there done that burnt my fingers and felt bad guys. So please don’t repeat that mistake!
And now introducing the best part of the outfit…ba-dum-tssss!!! My heels!!! I got these glitter heels recently and I absolutely love them to bits. I can strut in them for life. Yayyy…so comfortable yet sexy 😆

Lovely don’t you think? Hope you guys enjoyed the post and the animal print trend I tried. Tell me what you guys thought. 🙂

Orange is the new black! ~1

I’ve recently been stocking up too much of orange wear. Tell me, is it like in trend or something? Then my subconscious probably knows that and hence this orange overdose. 😛 so here is the first of four posts I’m going to do about my orange-craze. 😀

This first shirt is a tie-waist button-up type which I bought while street shopping. I thought it looked really cute with its white flowers and frills. Paired it with rose earrings and a really cool pair of pumps my friend once gifted me 😀
What do you guys think? Do tell me
