Hello all! This is my first blog and I am as excited as a kid is on seeing an ice-cream. 🙂
Well, summers in Mumbai, (the city I live in) are extremely hot, with temperatures going pretty high in the afternoons. You really wouldn’t want to step out in the afternoons, but if you have a lunch planned with your bestie, (after a long time) you would not want to miss that anyway, right? Getting dressed or putting on the make-up can be highly boring. How we love our pair or tracks or pyjamas and a tee, in this kind of weather and how we wish we could wear that everywhere, right? But when the lunch planned, is at an amazing fine- dine restaurant, you surely want to look like a diva and your best, in all those selfies you’d take.
True story of every girl! Too much confusion.
Also, being a mother to a 2 year old, I am always short of time. I have literally managed the art of getting dressed under 10 mins. 🙂 I am sure most of my mommy friends would agree. Well, to solve this problem, I took to the middle-ground, balancing between style and simplicity, going natural on the makeup and selecting my outfit which was chic yet summer- friendly and mainly, done in less than 10 mins.
So here’s what i wore.
I chose a super easy-breezy, red asymmetrical-sleeve top by ‘Life- Shopper’s Stop’. Red, I feel, is a power colour and even the simplest of outfit in red can make a style statement, all on its own. What I love about this top is it’s cut and fit. The asymmetrical sleeves make it look so glamorous. This top, if teamed with appropriate bottom wear , can also be a perfect outfit to wear to a party. (This top is currently available at a discount of 40%). You can try so many looks with this top. I dropped it a little from one shoulder to make it look further stylish. The best part, you can play with your accessories.
I teamed it with an ankle length cotton denim pants by forever 21. I am in love with ankle length pants. They give absolute justice to your favourite pair of sandals or stilettos. (You can also show off your newly- bought anklet).
I wore my loved pair of red and black bowed, peep toes which I had bought from a local shop in Bandra, (a favourite shopping hub in Mumbai).
I accessorized this look with a beautiful bead necklace. I bought this one at Colaba causeway. (Colaba is another shopping hub, famous for street shopping. It is a shopper’s delight attracting both, locals and foreigners. No one returns empty handed for sure)
