From Desk to Dinner in Pastel and Shimmer

Waddup girlies? Freaking out in the heat?

Well, for the first time ever I'm not writing a blog post sitting in my room, but a cafe, sipping some chilled ice tea! Needless to say, summers are quite early but officially here, and I'm trying to play it cool with some pastels this season. Since spring is blooming up as well, I thought of creating a cool pastel look for you all, shot around some soothing greenery and blossoming flowers. Scroll down to take a look at a few pictures and outfit description!

How often do we go out for dinner with friends, or colleagues for that matter? Hardly, but sometimes suddenly. To be honest, I like to dress comfy and keep my looks subtle during the summer months at work. But, if I have to go out in the evening for a sudden dinner, straight from work, I always have a switch mode on!

Like, recently I had to attend an important meeting in the day and had to rush to a dinner party from there itself. With no time to change in between, I opted for a full-sleeved formal shirt and a pair of ankle length leggings to suit the meeting dress code and add a few pieces to it later while rushing for the evening event! The pastel blue, cotton shirt with a lace embroidery on the shoulder and up-front on the chest, paired with black leggings that had sequin lining on the side appeared so elegant in the day as well as hinting the shimmer in the evening, that I thought of teaming the both together. The combo turned out to be really pretty & crisp, well both pieces from my favorite brand StalkBuyLove, had to be it! I secured the bloom of the shirt with a thin belt to give the appearance an edge and structure. Completed my simple look with a pair of white heels that matched the whole attire in the day as well as at night. As for the evening party, I added a gold choker necklace and carried a metallic bag to add the much needed shimmer to my look. And of course the sparkle on the leggings worked out in absolute perfection too! 

Also, let me just take a moment to thank A Crush Story for being really thoughtful and sending me this 'popcorn designer bucket bag', after seeing my Snapchat stories where I updated my love for popcorn on a regular basis. I just love the Garrat popcorn shop bag, its my current favorite bag of the season! The best part about it is its adjustable sling that helps me wear its as a cross body or a shoulder bag or just hold it like a clutch in hand. So sexy, I must say!

Very often working women face these situations of rushing for an evening event directly from their work, having no time to change in between. I would be really glad to know if this post could help any of you reading this and taking outfit inspiration from here. Let me know if it did or not.
