The Camo Style ft. Cultfiction Clothing

Hello everyone, I hope you liked the last post that I published yesterday, talking about my rainbow attraction. It's really close to my heart, and I wanted y'all to take a look! If you haven't chanced upon it yet, do it HERE now.

As for today, I've got you another fashion post from a different brand - CULTFICTION CLOTHING. They do not sell on their own website but other major ones like - Ajio, Jabong, Koovs, Myntra & Flipkart. The brand is one of my favourites when it comes to sporty chic outfits, and I'd been a regular customer, until one fine day they sent me some sample pieces to try and share with you guys (my lovely readers). Let me tell you, Cultfiction is one of the most reliable brands when it comes to skin friendly fabric and authentic colors, and like most of you know I love stepping out in comfort more than spunky apparels, this brand just does it right for me!

For this post, I've chosen to share two of my favorite camouflage looks from Cultfiction. I've taken a sparkle of runway inspiration and brought camo back! The oh-so-wearable trend definitely won’t disguise or hide your high and mighty style game, trust me! 

The first piece is a camisole top, with camo pattern in red, blue and white. My most favorite color combination for the chill season! Darker colors just make me look a li'l prettier in this weather you see. Well, it's a crop top, more like a t-shirt, and fits me perfectly. I tend to avoid wearing sleeveless tops but this one adds the right curve to my shoulder and looks sexy! I paired it up with a black distressed jeans and white heels to give the look an edge. 

PS : Since this post was shot in the summers, you know it's more like a summer outfit, but of course can be donned in winters with a jacket layered unapologetically, ain't it?

The second piece is a camo shift dress. Now who wouldn't want to make a statement in the rough-and-tough khaki and grey hue to look totally badass. It's time we carry forward an essence of femininity and sexiness by adding an army-inspired uniform to our wardrobes for instant kickass sass. Do we dare to bring back the trend? Hell yes!

This shift dress is a very stylish yet comfortable piece in my wardrobe and will always be, until I find something better (not happening anytime soon I believe). The pattern is stunning and can be carried in any season, regardless of the offbeat style. I can layer it up with a long coat in winters and add longer boots. As for this look, I chose to wear my ankle length boots, and clinch a sleek belt on my waist. Also added a chunky metallic bracelet to give the look a definition.

Recently I stumbled upon a picture of Victoria Beckham walking the streets of New York, carrying the best version of herself styled in a camo tee, and that inspired me to finally publish this post! But with that, it also begs the question - if one of the most stylish woman on the planet is backing the return of camouflage, should you be too? Well, the answer is : it's a counterintuitive fashion trend, and we all want to stand out! It's impossible not to notice it! So girls, make 'camo' a runway trend and pull out your camouflage outfits and show your flirty, colorful camo side for spring!

You can buy the top HERE, and the dress HERE.

Rainbow Attraction ft. Shein

Hi guys, how's it going? Been long I've updated you about what's happening around. A lot of you noticed that I've been MIA throughout the last year and I've received so many questions regarding that! True, not even 2 posts per month sometimes. 

Well, as some of you know, and to those who still don't, that I moved to New Delhi in June 2018 and had been trying to explore a fairly new world altogether! I've never really stayed away from my family before, but for the past 8 months, it's been hell crazy. I've learned to live all by myself, work my ass out under bosses, pay my own bills, solve electricity and water problems, cook my own food and drove on roads at 2 AM that I've never travelled before! A lot of lessons have come my way where I've met with accidents, dealt with them (mostly with no help, and sometimes with the help of friends who've now become family). I've built new relationships, survived heartbreaks, and kept some tucked in while I culturally transform myself! Honestly, I've evolved as a person, and have also managed to keep in action as much as I could. 2018 has been a slow year for Picker at Pace but I think this was essential. I really needed a break from constant writing and wanted to classify my priorities! 

PS : I've moved back to Lucknow now. Well, I hope y'all have the answer to your questions, and you don't hate me anymore for not keeping you looped in! 

Also, HAPPY NEW YEAR guys. It's 2019 (almost 2 months done to it already) but nevertheless I'd want to restart this blog with some super posts. Sharing below with you guys my fascination for rainbows and how I ended up buying the most colorful top in my wardrobe, also the one many of you have your eyes upon! Scroll down to read it all.. 

A lot of you have been enquiring about my obsession with rainbows. You literally saw a LIVE haul session on my instagram that consisted of more than 20 things with the rainbow print. Honestly, the 7 odd colours have been the reason for my evolvement. They bring so much positivity in me, and keep me motivated. Though rainbows not only depict bliss always, it's a mix of grey feelings as well, when I'm not so motivated and shed bucket full of tears because I'm not coping with what's coming my way. However, what the rainbows have taught me is to not give up trying, and that whatever the moments are - happy or gloomy, they shall pass!

I'm attracted to rainbows, so much so that I wear them and walk out of my house only to keep the feeling intact. I found this rainbow top on and I added it to my cart without even checking the price! The design looked decent, and the off shoulder style made it appear pretty as well. I chose to club it with a pair of yellow shorts from itself. The shorts had cute knots on the sides and were of just perfect length! A cool combo for summer outings and even for winters can be paired with boots and the overall outfit can be layered with a jacket. I mean if you're a shorts lover, you'd not want to ditch this look. It's so vibrant and attractive! To add, did you notice the charming rainbow pendant? It compliments the outfit and also the other accessories - gold bracelets and the monochrome earrings match perfectly! 

Also, these ankle boots are one of my favorites. These are an old pick from H&M and I'm so fond of them that I don't think I'll want to get rid of them for a long time now. These go so well with anything and everything, especially cute outfits and formals. Must have these kind in your collection!

You can buy the entire outfit from SHEIN.IN, and of course can thank me later! Do drop in your feedback on this post if you liked reading it. Coming your way more this month, stay tuned! Until then, lots of love to each one of you.
