Lessons, Learnings, Laughter!

A year seems inconsequential but if you really stop and think about it, each one of those days had their own significance, in one way or another. Another year passes and I turn a year older. Usually, I don't believe in the concept of celebrating life on one particular day, within the span of a limited 24 hours. My thoughts are that you should live and celebrate life everyday. But the fact that my birthday falls on the same day as Beyonce's makes my heart dance with joy and gets me excited nonetheless. 

So, as I turn a year older, I decided to reflect on the past one year and how much I have learnt since then. Just like any year, it had its ups and downs. Penning down my learnings, lessons and moments of laughter and love, I hope you take back something of substance from this. 

I learnt that patience is powerful. I started off as someone who wanted things to happen instantly, with little to no tolerance level. But somewhere down the line I understood that if you got everything you wanted, served to you a platter the moment you wanted it, there'd be no learning, no journey, no growth. 

I learnt that effort is priceless. Be it at work, for family or in your relationship. You need to put in the required effort, take the required action everyday. That way, you will have no regrets. If you ever feel unmotivated, ask yourself: Whats it that you're going to lose by taking action? 

I learnt the importance of having goals. If you have seen the winning speech by Matthew McConaughey, when he wins an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, he mentions that he is always chasing his hero, which in effect is the person he wants to become in the coming few years. And, for most of us, that's what keeps us going endlessly. Where would you hit if you don't have a target? 

I learnt that it is almost essential to maintain your sanity by taking out time for things you love. Reading, movies, travelling to your favorite city, the works!

I also learnt that seeking validation is an unnecessary act. You shouldn't tame/change your thoughts about anything only to fit into the spectrum of society. 

I did learn that your people are your pillars. Your family, your loved one, a handful of your friends; they will build you a great foundation to sail through anything. 

I learnt that it doesn't cost a dime to be grateful for the life you are living. It will just give you a clear lens and make your problems seem smaller. 

And lastly, I learnt that I should post here more often. 

Hope it brightened your day or gave you a little something to ponder on. 

Until Next Time!

Denim Draft: Part Deux

There's absolutely no denying that the golden haze of summer is a beautiful thing to behold. But as summer falls upon us, comfort and easy-breezy attires top our sartorial choices. In this second denim draft, I seek to outline just how denim can be your companion this summer.

Flattering necklines have seeped in to become a raging phenomenon. With the temperatures soaring beyond bearable, an off-shoulder top like this from The Bleu Label does the trick to extend a little relief. The lightweight denim adds an element of modernity, innovation and comfort in all its entirety. Pairing it with black zipper pants and a tie-up choker, and I was good to go. 

Check out all the fun denim pieces by Bleu Label and you are bound to find something to suit your style this summer.

Until next time!

The Wilderness Within

Often in times of chaos and humdrum, we drift apart from the very essence of originality. Imitating in order to fit in is a conventional but flawed phenomenon. As for me, originality transcends to fashion too, just like it does in a million other things. Wearing a piece that defines you is one which you are most comfortable in.

Denim is one such trend has stood the test of time and is still going strong; making it absolutely ageless and versatile in its own existence. And that exactly is the ideology behind 'The Bleu Label'. In a way, wilderness means the raw essence that defines you. So when I say embracing the wilderness within, I mean feeling liberated to don the clothes that best outline your form. And this denim jacket brings about just that vibe!

The Aztec Denim Jacket contains a fusion of new age design with the distressed patches and an underlying sense of a vintage element with its aztec prints. I took quite an instantaneous liking for the jacket for its right fit and the unique back prints, of course. Pairing it with denim shorts and a heart cross-body bag gave the chic look an edge of street-style. Wear the jacket with a crop top or a strappy dress and it will turn heads.

Until Next Time, Lovelies!

Structured Elegance

It has been a while since I last posted, I shall not deny that. I have been swamped with academics lately and I couldn't wait to get back to curating posts for, you, all my dear patient readers. 

What I set to bring forth today is something novel. If I asked you what a modern, working women, would look for in today's day and age in her wardrobe, I'm sure you would say something along the lines of elegance, agility and the perfect blend of chic and comfort. Luckily, I happened to find all those in this one outfit by Arcoiris

I have repeatedly acknowledged the love I have for structured and well put-together clothing. So naturally, while browsing through the website of Arcoiris, I just couldn't resist this skort dress. The literal definition of Arcoiris, meaning 'rainbow' in Spanish, pretty much intrigued me in knowing more about the brand. The beautiful philosophy behind Arcoiris is to empower oneself to express their identity, which is exactly what I seek to bring out through this post. 

The white skort dress is completely body-con that greatly enhances your curves and indeed is quite flattering in all its entirety. I decided on styling the dress along with a choker, barring any heavy accessories so as to give an effortless feel to the whole look. What I sought to create was an imprint of the new-age women with a contemporary elegance. All in all, you can sport the skort dress either at work or at a brunch, and I'm sure eyeballs will linger! 

Let me know your thoughts behind the look in the comments below. (Always great to hear you out.) 

Until next time!

Street Style Staple

When it comes to street styling, I don't think there is any other style that merely started off as a trend and transformed into a staple. This is one of the reasons I tend to pick a street styled outfit more often; for the simplicity and effortless styling that comes with it. 

With e-commerce taking quite a boom, many startups are overlooked for being similar and not offering any novelty. This post centered on being a tad bit varied than the regular, I set to share my experience about Kraftly and what makes it different than the rest. An e-commerce platform, Kraftly is one of the rare portals which acts as a boost to small entrepreneurs and hobby sellers by providing a selling platform. Alternatively, you can also buy from Kraftly from their collection ranging from apparels, fashion accessories, footwear and home decor - to name a few categories. Have a look at their website 'here'

Being the first one to fall for street styling, I created a collection of the same from their collection on their mobile application. I was quite amazed to discover that the fashion collection is quite diverse and kept up to the current trends. From denim clothing, casual t-shirts and totes, I quite enjoyed curating my own street style collection. Another feature of the Kraftly application is its unique method of selling on Instagram. The application assists you in creating a shop within 30 minutes, with minimum requirement and upload product details (product pictures of which you can directly import from Instagram). Kraftly personally ensures all the product shipping and your payments, making it convenient for first-time sellers.

 Apart from Instagram, the application has a strong presence on other social media platforms as well. Since street styling appeals the most to my taste of styling, I created a collection of the same on Kraftly. You can check out my street style collection 'here' if you would like to. 

Hope you enjoyed reading. 

Until next time, lovely readers!

Leather Weather f.t. SBL

 The versatile staple loved by all is undoubtedly a leather jacket.  Monsoon's aren't my favorite part of the year, but when they come with quirks of chic styling, I seem to like them just a tad bit more.

Now, I know quite a lot of you could agree when I say the leather weather is approaching and Stalk Buy Love literally has me covered.It's one of those brands that have made an impact on the e-commerce platform in delivering the most trendiest styles. The fact that it stands apart is that each style is handpicked by their curators, giving unprecedented access of the newest fashion. 

I picked out this biker leather jacket and these zipper jeans from Stalk Buy Love. And trust me when I say this, it took me quite a while to stalk because every piece was amazing in its own way. The jacket and jeans fit like a dream and were pretty effortless to style. When it's monsoons, leather whole shoes just cant seem to stray afar. I decided on pairing my biker jacket and zipper jeans with leather shoes simply because they bring out the spirit of the season. Completed the look with a choker and silver sunglasses, and I was good to go. You can check out the trendy collection of Stalk Buy Love 'here'.

What's your idea of a monsoon look? Let me know in the comments below. 

Until next time, all you lovely readers!

Boho Chic

 With summer nearing it's end and the conundrum of crazy weather beginning, I reckon we still have a few muggy weeks of late summer ahead of us. This undoubtedly calls for outfits that are a roundup of summer fashion implicating a more easy-going relaxed look. 

Much like me, if you have an undying love for summer clothing, All About You from Deepika Padukone can pretty much turn out to be your kindred match. Curated by Deepika Padukone herself, the brand encompasses femininity through its silhouettes, and does so, phenomenally. I picked out this tassel vest that synchronized perfectly with these sequined shorts. The white top broke the monotone and when paired with the vest, brought together a very bohemian vibe. You can check out the amazing collection from All About You 'here'.

The best way to amp up any outfit is through the bags you choose to wear with them. As for me, bags have always been an alluring accessory and I cannot resist a good bag when I see one. This bag from Zhero Denim was the perfect mixture of chic and edgy as it comprised of leather and denim, making it one of the many unique bags that I've come across. Another quality that stood out was how sturdy the bag was, making it the perfect match for this look. Check out their bags 'here'.

I paired the overall look with these Rivir Shoes. The silver slip on's are as comfortable as they look. It fell in place and aided the chic factor, seamlessly. The whole look was created in mind by bringing out a bohemian look(with a chic touch) and one that serves as a fashion fix for the last days of summer while they're here. 

Let me know whats your idea of a bohemian look, in the comments below.

Until next time, lovelies!
