Wardrobe Basics for Summer

Matching Separates have been a rage since Beyonce, Rihanna and Taylor Swift chose to adorn this sartorial yet stylish pairing.
For a very casual and wearable coordinated look, pair two basics in the same shade together. Now, it may be tough to find clothes in the same shade in your wardrobe. Hence, start matching your camisoles with your skirts. I chose this grey camisole with a draped skirt  from StalkBuyLove. Since, summer has already set in, how can I not pair up something floral? To add a pop up of color to my all grey ensemble, I paired this pink statement neck piece from Vero Moda and a floral studded ring from Youshine. And for my pretty feet, I wore these glittery pink heels from BURIN Footwear.
For those who are scared to experiment with matching separates, I say, start matching solid colors like Black and White and then move onto Prints.

Across the Sea

It’s getting warmer and I couldn't help but get my white pants out from the wardrobe. For an afternoon spent sailing at the Gateway of India, I chose to wear my white pants with a dark denim colored tie-up cotton shirt. 

I have been born and brought up in the city of Mumbai, but sometimes, it's fun to be touristy and explore the city.

P.S - Valentine's Day maybe over. But, Sailing is an adorable way to express your love to your better half. Don't forget to carry your portable speakers and something to munch on because it can get pretty exhausting.

#OOTD - Kala Ghoda Arts Festival

I only started visiting the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival since last year. Being a self proclaimed DIY Queen, these artistic installments made out of scrap intrigued me. Last year, I went to Kala Ghoda as a Mass Media student photographing the installments and this year, I went as a Vlogger to cover the Festival for my Youtube Channel.

I let my inner bohemian out and paired up a crop top with these Tencil Jogger Bottoms from StalkBuyLove. Also, since I would be running around capturing the festival from my eyes, I wore metallic Kohlapuris. To finish my look, I accessorized it with a hand harness which is commonly known as haath phool from my go - to accessory shopping portal - Youshine.

What I love about these bottoms are that they are extremely comfortable on a sunny day out. Don't be surprised if you see me in them at least twice a week.

Jumpsuits Reinvented

"The best fashion advice I'd say would be just to do what makes you comfortable and what makes you feel cute, and that's how you're gonna look your best 'cause when you feel your best, everybody else can feel it, too." - Ariana Grande

We have all been guilty of wearing overalls as a kid. So, why not now? When I think of denim overalls, I think of Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green in FRIENDS. 
Nothing could be more comfortable than denim overalls! Wear it over, under or as a sole clothing item. Variety is key when it comes to wearing a jumpsuit. From sporty chic to feminine, a jumpsuit can be reinvented to suit your personality and style.
Earlier, overalls used to be loose and baggy but over the years, they have evolved to be more skinny and tapered; giving you the feel of a bodycon.
Rather than going for the usual solid white colored tee, I paired my black denim jumpsuit from StalkBuyLove with a military print top. I kept my accessories minimal to retain the spotlight on my outfit. I am wearing a silver cuff from Youshine and these fierce round sunglasses from Fancy Pants. For the makeup, I chose to go bold. I am wearing Poppy Red from Faces and L’oreal Paris Super Liner Black Lacquer.

P.S. StalkBuyLove has a variety of playsuits and jumpsuits that won't burn a hole in your pocket. Also, it is super easy to purchase from their categorized website. Also, did I mention that your order gets specially stitched for you?

Choose the one for you!

I turned 20 years old four months back and to be honest, I did crib about not being a teenager anymore. Did that mean I had to act mature and I couldn’t be rebellious anymore? Urgh!

The only positive about turning 20 was I wouldn’t experience frequent skin breakouts anymore. Yay! But, that does not mean that I take my skin for granted. I had to find the right product which was not harsh and obviously, was in my budget.

L’oreal Paris’ Skin Perfect for the age group of 20 costs 395 rupees which is not a hefty price to pay for a lifetime of ‘perfect’ skin. Also, they have a budget friendly range that starts from 99/- rupees only.

The age group of 20 is a balancing act in itself. In your twenties, you are no longer a teenager but you may experience imperfections like tanning and pimple marks. You are just out of college and leading a stressful life of work and not getting enough sleep leading to those designer bags under your eyes. 

Considering that you lead a hectic and busy life, you may often forget to slather some sunscreen before leaving the house. Trust me, I have had days when I woke up late and just applied some foundation and kohl and left home only to regret that I did not apply any sunscreen.

The L’oreal Paris Skin Perfect Cream acts like a quick base for all the needed makeup application thereafter. The cream gets instantly absorbed in the skin and brilliantly hides my teeny tiny spots. Often creams tend to look oily after application but the Skin Perfect cream gets absorbed as you apply. How awesome is that?

The cream is light pink in color and smells great. Just a tiny amount gives full face coverage. Also, you will start noticing results in two weeks of daily usage. Well, my face has not become visibly whiter but my dark spots have reduced along with an even face tone. I used the cream before leaving home for college and it stayed till I was back home. Hence, it is fair to say that the skin cream is definitely long lasting!

Now let's come to what I did not like about the cream. After application, the cream leaves a white cast on your face if you do not blend it properly. Certainly what I would not like if I am in a hurry!
The cream comes in a small yet heavy glass jar and therefore, it is not travel friendly. But, since L'oreal has introduced the 99/- rupees range, the packaging of that range is much more economical and travel friendly.

Choose the one for you because you are worth it!
