Monsoon Blues - Maxi Dress Style ft. Libas

The skies might be overcast right now, but don't let those 50 shades of grey trickle into your everyday style. Monsoon is one of the most enjoyed seasons because you get to imagine the dreamy love with your dream partner. But more than that, you enjoy it because of the lush greens and springy flower blooms right after! The rainbow too needs the rains and you enjoy that as well, correct me if I'm wrong?! As for me personally, I enjoy the rains for I get to wear my favorite styles, one out of which I'm sharing with you in this post!




It's right around this time of year that we start living in dresses. But we've all been told to ditch longer hemlines and maxis. But I ask, WHY? I choose to get my maxi dress game on point, with the right pieces and the pairings. Honestly, maxi dresses are so underrated. I love that they have a little extra material, so if you don't want your legs out in the open, you can keep them covered. Plus, they're super comfortable and great for travel. When it comes to dress designs, they're pretty up there in our book too! 

One of my favorite collection is available at LIBAS these days, and I've bought tons of maxi dresses for myself. I am currently obsessed with this particular blue one with peacock color print - iridescent shades of blue, green, brown and yellow commonly found in a peacock's train. Everyone's got the blues at the moment. Currently cornflower, pastel orrice and cobalt are the shades of the moment when it comes to mixing this season's "it" colour. And then this dress is fitted right at the bust, and flairs from the waist; has just the right length and looks adorable! 








It's a light cotton fabric - super airy and doesn't harm the skin in the rains. The print & design feels as if jumped out of a French impressionist painting. I chose to pair it with a statement neckpiece in the peacock design, white fashion earrings and a statement cuff in my wrist with yellow and turquoise stones studded on it. Carried a cobalt blue bag too to keep it all coordinated. Everything on point, eh? I completed my look by adding a pair of heels in a lighter shade of blue that matched perfectly. In the end, I also tried going in for a pair of pink sneakers, just in case I've to step in water and skip wearing heels!




I really hope you're trying the maxi style this season! Go varied. Move out of your comfort zone. Try new styles and ditch the mundane! Grab your maxi dress from Libas, on MYNTRA.

Season's Fresh : All Green 'Top to Toe'

Summer means a lot of things. It means sunnier days, happier hours and afternoons spent sipping your favourite drinks. It also means the return of summer rompers season. I know, I know — leave it to a fashion editor to derive an unusual amount of seasonal joy from a straight-up clothing genre. But seriously, rompers are a gift, and I will sing their praises every chance I get.

Rompers, in particular, are as breezy as retailers’ shortest options — while offering a kind of mental assurance you can really only get from a pair of pants. Add to that the fact that they’re basically all-in-one outfits that require zero styling work, and you’ve got a summer fashion trifecta that truly cannot be beat. Convenience, comfort and concern-free wear at the same damn time? It’s honestly a little shocking we’re not living in them all summer long.




The array of rompers on offer right now is so vast, so varied and so damn cute that no amount of grandmother shade could possibly convince me to refrain from romp-ing around all season long. I'd been looking around for a green piece since long and found one at SHEIN. It's a classic outfit with the knot at the side, and is airy-flairy just as I like it. Got a deep neck (uhm, kinda weird to look at once, but the deep cut at the back making it sexier from all angles. The length is perfect and fits my style!

Rompers not require much styling, but I choose to add accessories to complete my look. My recent craze for headbands is not hidden; it's also in trend so why not! Picked this one from SHEIN, and heels from SHEIN as well. All green under their "summer sale". Also, added a chunky, black bracelet from GLOBUS, and my rose-gold watch from DANIEL WELLINGTON on my wrist.






Along with that, I'd like to give a huge shoutout to LUCKNOW LIFESTYLE - an online shop, for sending across these beautiful earrings that I've paired with the outfit. Looks really classy; and the customised clutch bag to add panache! It's one of my favourite pieces in my bag collection, has Picker At Pace printed on one side, and a picture of mine printed on the other! I can carry it as a clutch in hand, or hang it from my shoulder like a sling. LUCKNOW LIFESTYLE does it all for you, and they have a wide range of products to choose from; and they do home deliveries real quick.

Honestly, green is one of my favourite colors; or to be specific - my third favourite color. Not that it makes any sense, but it is. I'm fascinate with the summer color and it just makes me feel so fresh to don it in the heat! Loved curating this outfit, that I can rock at a day outing or an evening party without guilt.




Let me know your thoughts over it in the comments below, and do share this post ahead with your girl friends, mommies, sisters and everyone who'd love rompers and green. Until next, love and luck!

Country Girl in Yellow Summer Dress

As the weather changes, we enjoy showing more skin and wearing vibrant lipsticks that bring out our skin tone. Dresses that feature flowers and floral patterns are often our spring and summer staples. I often opt for a flattering A-line dress, a skin-tight bandage dress, or slip into a sexy bodycon piece. I like pulling off sophisticated flare and pick floral patterns to bring out my confident femininity. In today's blog, I'm sharing with you one of the most beautiful floral print dress, that I paired with my choice of country style accessories to alleviate the gloom of winter and fall!




The hot month of June calls for a cute A-line dress in yellow that I picked from Shein.in. It's a 100% rayon fabric and feels amazing on the skin. The fit and flare is what attracted me to this gorgeous piece. The spaghetti straps makes it easier to don in the summer months with a low back cut out and a knot in the front makes it appear fancier.

I styled it with some raw accessories - a fabricated choker, sleek gold cuffs in the wrist, brown suede heels, leopard print sunnies and a hat. Completed my look by adding a multicolored sequin bag, giving strong summer feels. More looking like the country girl, eh? Oh, and always remember if you don't want to flaunt the deep neck, go for a tube top inside - like I did (with a black one).








Dressing for summer and picking the right floral outfit can be a task, but if you know your body structure, Shein.in has the best summer dress collection for you! Do check it out and let me know if it helped. Until next time, love & luck.

4 Ways to Style 1 Flared Pants ft. Shein

Hello everybody, how's it going?
It feels amazing to be back at writing blogs, but more than that sharing my thoughts with you! It's an everyday story now that all of you come to see what I'm doing on my social media pages, but what's rare is that y'all coming back here on my website and checking out my blogs. Thankyou for being my regular readers!

Coming to what's happening in my life; well, A LOT! It has turned upside down since the time I've come back to Lucknow. It feels great to be back home and doing what I love - work, party, eat, repeat! These 4 moods of mine are so in routine that I chose to share them with you all through this post. 

With all the rush, I hardly get time to dress for every occasion distinctively; and honestly, I don't have all the time in the world to select different pair of bottoms every day. But what's comforting is to be able to style just one set pants with different tops, shirts, tees & shrugs. I recently bought a pair of black flared pants - much in trend, and styled them differently and received tons of compliments. Check out my 4 looks below..





BOSS LADY

I am not a believer that you must dress to conform in an office space. I am a believer that you should dress in a relatively modest, office-appropriate manner. But within those guidelines, you do you! My style theme is : "To be classy without being OTT." I believe less is more. And again, moderation is key. For this particular look I opted for a white, cotton half sleeved shirt with cold shoulder cuts to pair with my black flared pants. Buttoned the shirt till the collar and tucked the length inside the pants. Secured the waist with a chic belt to add perfection!

As for accessories, trust me, they can make or break an outfit. They tend to be a focal point, so make it a good one. I chose to add a collar pin, classy dangles in my ear and a few black, white & gold bracelets in my wrist. It was a touch task deciding which black heels to add, but these pointed ones look dope! Sunglasses of course add royalty to the entire look, and a high quality handbag completes it. PS : I often carry a laptop with me, and keep changing my laptop sleeves - this pink one with the "cute but psycho" quote is my current favorite! Lastly, for my makeup, it's always red on my lips, and curls on my head!

PARTY PRINCESS

With most of you already seeing my current stories, you know where I'm partying and how much I'm enjoying! I try and keep you updated my regular party OOTNs but this look is so special that I never posted about it, as yet. I feel it's super classy to club a rust color top with a black pair of pants and layer it with an oversized shrug in peach. I had randomly picked the top from F21 in Lucknow last year and it came out to be a size smaller. I didn't want to return the piece since it was the last one in stock so I chose to always layer it until I could get back in shape, and see it worked! I cringed a broad brown belt over the shrug on my waist to give it a definition and it turned out to be so elegant!

I completed my look with some black, gold and silver bracelets and hand cuffs on my wrist, a broad gold ornamental chain in my neck that added splendidness, and peach colored heels that matched with the shrug. I love how graceful everything turned out. Finished off my face with smokey eyes and a glam touch with red on lips and curls on head!

CASUAL QUEEN

Once in an article, that featured me, they titled me as "the girl next door". Well, they simply described my style as trendy and casual that can easily be an inspiration to many girls who want to dress easy and yet look up to the minute. Well, they weren't wrong! I mostly dress in comfortable clothing rather than high end fashion. For the times when I've to run errands and still look my best, I choose to throw in a pair of black pants and top it with a casual, white, cotton t-shirt : best for summer months. For this particular look, I jazzed up a bit by layering a denim jacket and my black pointed-toe heels.

For accessories, I stacked a few navy blue & silver bracelets in my wrists and small white dice studs in my ears. It's basically a day look and I tend to carry it all night long as well so no neck pieces! For my makeup, it's a subtle face with red on lips and curls on my head. Modish & sassy, ain't it?

RETRO BEE

I got inspired by Spring for this look. The colour of this bell sleeved top is so springy and summery! It's a synthetic fabric crop top and suited best with my black, high-waisted, flared pants. The bell sleeves of the top are so vougish and I love how the red floral pattern on pink base takes all the attention, back & again! I added my black, stiletto booties in my feet and a pink sling bag to keep it matching with the outfit. A pink pair of big sized sunnies was such a last minute addition but so on point. Simple bracelets added the magic, and you have to now agree that red on my lips and curls on my head look the best!
