A Casual Sunday

15 Jul

I love this bright, casual, cropped top. And I think chartreuse might be my new favorite color for the summer. :–)

As you can see, as soon as I pick up something bright (for my tastes), I just have to pair it with neutral colors. Although next time, I could swap the tan espadrilles with bright, color-blocked flats. That would work too.

I’m wearing Martin+Osa shorts, BCBG top, Michael Kors espadrilles (got them at a great discount!!), Fossil rosegold watch and Gucci sunglasses (also bought at a great discount!).

Yay I love summer. :–D


A Bucket Full of Chic!

22 Dec

So what’s my latest obsession, you ask? The bucket bag! :–D

I love this style for many reasons…It’s casual chic, hands-free AND pretty roomy. Some of you may not like the structure very much, but I think it’s adorable. The bag comes in so many different styles – some soft, some edgy (with studs et al), with or without drawstrings, some bases are more defined or structured than others. There’s a lot to choose from!

I think the most trendy bucket bag right now is the ‘Diego’ by Alexander Wang. There’s so much to love…I’ll let you see for yourself. ;–)

Princess Fédora, thank you.

So I have this thing for Fedora hats. I mean, who doesn’t? They look so chic!

But I have a problem. I don’t quite know how to wear them. :-/ I mean, how should I style my hair underneath the hat? Will I need to take the hat off when I’m indoors? And if I do, what do I do about the resulting “hat hair”?! Ugh.

So I turned to my trusted stylist – Google. :–D Here are some doable looks I found…

1.) This one is my favorite. Super easy and ultra-stylish. Notice how casual and unstructured her outfit is and then BAM! – she adds sleek accessories like the straw hat, those lust-worthy shoes and those shades. And how fuss-free is her hairdo! Here’s a look that’s actually achievable, right? (God! I love her style.)

Slacker Alert!

13 Jun

I know I know…I haven’t done a good job keeping up with my blog lately and I feel awful about it. :–( To say the least, there’s a LOT going on in my life (and I’m not complaining). But as I’ve said before, I hate making excuses so let’s just get on to the fun stuff. ;–)

So, last week I was in New York. New York City, to be precise. First things first – I absolutely LOVE that city. But then, I’ve been a city girl all my life (having been born & bred in my beloved, fast-paced, always-alive city of Bombay), so I guess it’s not really a surprise, huh. ;–)

I was in a New York state of mind.

Got my vintage on

13 May

Summer’s here (well, almost!) and ever so often, I like to go into my comfort zone – of wearing light cotton tees ofcourse…with um…just about *everything*. :–D

My favorite kind now are those fun vintage graphic tees. SUPER cute! Don’t you think?

TrendWatch: ‘Tis the season of Flares!

15 Apr

And the perfect reason to go shopping too!…Right, like I ever need one. :–P

The high-waisted flared jeans trend is back, y’all! So while I still think skinny jeans are one of the best things to have happened to us, I’m more than ready for a change. =)
