Seeing the title, don’t get your hopes high. We are the most boring pair of sisters whose idea of crazy fun is going to a Vegetarian Italian restaurant in the city. XD FUN FUN FUN!
In our defense, the broccoli cheese ravioli and the pan fried mushroom starters there are to die for. So..yes. FUN FUN FUN!
It has been a while since I shopped so basically these days I’m digging into my closet and picking out long-forgotten pieces and trying to pair them right and make an outfit out of them.
So, in one such dig, I found these pair of bright (almost neon-y) peach crop pants. These were an impulse buy back in 2012 when color pants were ruling the roost and I have worn them exactly once (the day after I bought them to be precise). Guilt and the prospect of a new blog post made me try on these pants recently, and they fit just fine. However the color was an issue because as much as I love bright colors this was a bit too in-your-face bright for me, so I sobered it down with a plain black T-shirt. I must say this plain black Tee has become such a wardrobe staple for me. I should probably think of buying them in more shades because they go so well with pants and skirts! 🙂
Coming back, the black T-shirt did a good job of slightly toning down the peach pants and I was good to go! 🙂
I completed this look with this mad owl chain which I bought off the streets of Bombay look ago, a cross body bag which was almost the same shade as my pants (for some reason the color seems so different in photos) and my orange and green peeptoes 🙂
Normally this is where my post would have ended. However yesterday my sister asked me if she could share blog space with me and I was like HellYa!! :* ❤
My sister is five years younger than me. She is pursuing her mechanical engineering undergraduate degree in a college in my city. Just when I think her sense of style is too easy and laid back she churns out outfits which look so comfortable and yet so chic 🙂
So this was what she wore last night!
She wore a midnight blue with white stars blouse and paired it with these new formal tights she bought recently. They look very cool with gold zippers at the thighs and ankle. She shares shoe sizes with me so she wore one of my black heels to complete the look. Cute no? 😉
Well that brings me to the end of my post. Do tell me your thoughts on both the outfit. Have a happy lazy Sunday 🙂
Urgh I’m on a row with the title making part of my brain. 😛 Anyway, I have been very apprehensive about buying palazzo pants for sometime now because it was a trend I was having a constant love-hate relationship with. This is because I really envied tall leggy lasses strutting in palazzo pants everywhere while yours truly is short and hmmm..how do I put this delicately.. not so leggy or lassy. Hahaha..
But I recently saw one blogger, who told me she was also short, rock these pants and thus I gained confidence to buy one. And so I did, and so an outfit of the day post. 😀
I bought these beauties at FabIndia an amazing chain of stores in India.
Hahaha I swear to God this meme was already there on Google. So you can imagine what this store does to us Indians. What’s amazing about this store is that they adopt every trend in traditional Indian fabric to give it a Desi-Twist and all of us fall for it straight away 🙂
I ensured that they were extremely loose so that they looked almost like a long skirt (just in case I again start feeling palazzos are not my thing )
I paired them with a plain black fitting t-shirt and wore my new violet pumps because…no reason…just because I love them 😛
What do you think about the look? Do tell me!
I have been waiting for really long to get nice pictures of my ombre top to name this post “Of Ombres and Chambrays” and sound all sexy, but I just wasn’t getting the right look with my ombre blouse :P. So here I present to you “One chambray, three ways!!” I saw this chambray top at one of our Indian stores a while ago and bought it because it looked good (polka dots on chambray? Yes please!!) and the price was very reasonable. But once I started wearing it, I realized chambray redefined comfort especially in a hot city like mine! With no further ado, let’s go on with the looks!
Look 1: Chambray over crop pants
I simply loved this look for its sheer comfort because these pants I got from M&S are ones which you can sleep, live or party in forever! XD
Accessories: light blue large circular studs (love them), my tan crossbody bag, and nude platforms
Look 2 : Chambray as a jacket
This look was created just moments before rushing to work because the T-shirt was a bit too colorful and casual even for the “Casual Friday” at work. Doesn’t the chambray add so much definition to the look? And no guesses about the pant! 😛 what!?! They are that comfortable ok?
Accessories: gold button sized earrings and white heels.
Psst…this look was a success at work 😀
Look 3 : Denim on denim look
Because I was into sports and dance all my life (barring the last couple of years) I was never the slender legged petite beauty! Hence I’ve always shied away from fitting skirts or dresses. But this denim skirt, a hand me down from my cool aunt, was too inviting to pass! So I threw caution to the wind and went on with the look anyway 😀
Accessories: Light blue smaller studs and my favorite Nike running shoes. Oh those neon laces! ❤
So what do you think about these three looks? Which one is your favorite and what would you pair chambray with? 🙂 Do tell me ❤
