The Week And Wishes!

Hi y’all! 💞 It has been an amazing week and half and there have been quite a few share worthy happenings 🙂
Diwali!
The most important Hindu festival is here and we spent it in style both at home and at work. The whole country celebrates the victory of good over evil by bursting crackers, lighting diyas and gorging on sweets. My office was also a scene of celebration.!

(The last picture would be me getting a high over crackers 😝)

Pencil Sketching
I’ve started taking doodling to new heights with these elaborate full paged doodles. I really enjoy doing them and the fact that they are absolutely useless doesn’t bother me one bit! 😂

And while most of them are pointless, I tried the Audrey Hepburn minimalist pencil sketching technique and I must say I’m quite happy. Can u tell the original from my drawing? Duh of course you can 😂😝

Bay Decoration
Festivals in general and important ones in specific solicit weeks upon weeks of ongoing celebrations. In that regard, Diwali is no different and our office just needs a reason to have fun, so we had a bay decoration contest (fun fun fun!) And our bay chose whatsapp to be the theme!
So this included our entire bay being dressed in shades of green and white, and each of our cubicles had a selfie of us with a “last seen at desk” time and a status! The entry to our bay even said “Join Group” and the exit said “Delete and Exit Group” LoL!
Needless to say, our bay won the contest. 😎 So in keeping with the theme, we did a Whatsapp Rangoli (Rangolis are patterns drawn on the floor and filled with color powder) Check out me and muh rangoli yo! 😜

Birthdays!
Having your mom’s and dad’s birthdays in the same week can have an acute slimming effect on your pocket. Hence I chose to go easy on my mom (just a cake! Sorry mom you kinda had everything you wanted. 😝) and go big on my dad’s gift – a watch!  And they both loved their gifts! 🙂

So!! What do you think? An awesome week or what? 🙂 hope you had and are still having an amazing week. Stay happy, stay safe and wish y’all a very Happy Diwali! May Good always win over Evil, may the Light always help those in Dark!

Pastels and Pops!

An outfit of the day post after really long!

image

Wore pastel over pastel over pastel to work today (that would be my top, trouser and shoes 😛 ) I simply love this simple boat neck top with delicate bead work all around its collar and sleeves. Because being sober and classy is just not in my blood I HAD to add some color to the outfit so I added this pretty bead necklace whose color was an darker shade of the lavendar of the top.

image

Yes, yes, when I smile…I SMILEEE. Hahaha!

While I personally thought my beads pretty much rocked the scene, some people *cough cough sister cough* felt the beads spoilt the whole look. Hellooo look how dull it looks without the necklace

What do you guys think of the look and about adding that sudden pop of color to be otherwise sober and sophisticated corporate attire?

Orange is the new black ~2

Hellooo all you lovely people! 🙂 how has your week been so far? My week…erm…let’s just say the lesser said the better. 😛
So as part two of my four part series I bring to you my second orange look 😀

So I bought this top from an Indian shop called “AND” a few months ago and the place I was going to this weekend seemed fun enough to release it 🙂 I tried a small mix-&-match, so I paired the halter neck top with something as traditional as the jhumka.
The jhumka is a traditional Indian earring worn by ladies for festivities and occasions. While it comes in various shapes, sizes and materials these days, they were originally made out of precious metals like gold and silver.
Coming back, so the current rage in my city is jhumkas made out of terracotta. When such adorable trends come by, why won’t I binge? Ofcourse I did 😀

image

They look pretty, yah? 😀
I kept the rest of the look simple. Since this blouse was pretty long, it covered my er..rather large behind 😛 so I chucked my jeans and wore it with a pair of super-comfy black above-the-ankle tights. These are truly the all purpose, fully exploited piece of clothing I own. Gym? Work? Casual outing? Shopping? I wear these tights every-frikkin-where. LoL.
The footwear was also pretty toned down. Wore these beautiful nude pumps I bought a while ago.

I love love luuurrvvee the cut work on these shoes 😀

Oh oh oh..and while we are at it, since my watch happened to match so beautifully with the look I thought why not show you guys that as well!

This fossil is one of my prized possessions 🙂 first gift to myself from my salary type of special!!! Its pink mother of pearl dial goes so well with any shade of pink, orange and red.

So what do you guys think? What would you pair halternecks with? Do tell me ❤
