Summer's here

|| Top-Sarojini Market, Delhi || Jeans-Zara || Gold bangles-Hill Road || Clutch-Sarojini Market || Neckpiece-Vero Moda || Heels-Thrifted || On my lips-Lady Danger by MAC || 

An extremely basic summer outfit, put together keeping in mind my need to express my style, yet not too loud or over the top to grab unnecessary eyeballs. Black basic jeans, with a lovely green top picked up from Delhi streets last november, prepped up with gold accessories and a popping shade of orange on the lips and nails.

My idea of a dream summer outfit would be a bikini top and a pair of super mini shorts with plenty of bohemian accessories. But lets face it-we live in India, who are we kidding.
Also, as the crime rates against women in this city are rising faster than the temperature levels, there's a lot of pressure from all ends to dress "appropriately" while stepping out.
On such occasions, stick to the basics and glam up the look with statement accessories or bright, fun lipstick shades, or work a way around fitting both in, as I've tried accomplishing here.

Hope everyone's having a pleasant summer. :)

Summer's here, spread out harsh and loud, before I could even let the winter months sink in completely. Even though Mumbai winter doesn't really sway over to an extreme side, the cool mornings spent wrapped under the quilt, and hot chai on a chilly evening, I miss.

The perfect solution to my nostalgia was delivered when my family planned a trip to the Himalayas around the end of last month. We visited some gorgeous, breathtaking places and travelled along the state, exploring the quaint obscure valleys and little-known towns.

I recently added to my collection a canon 50 mm, which gave me some wonderful, bokeh-filled images of the trip. I've edited quite a few of them, and for a change am satisfied with the final results; will dedicate the next post to these particular bunch of images.

Talking about the current post, these pictures were clicked back in January, and since I've just been occupied with several other stuff(+lazy), it's being put up only now. Also, truth be told, at times I lack the motivation and drive to blog on a regular basis. So I choose to lie back, wait till I'm hit with some jolt of inspiration(or at least a teeny current of it).
Anyway, coming back to this, it's a typical summer outfit, comprising of a floral Forever New skirt and a yellow top thrifted from Sarojini Market(Delhi), accessorized it up with some pale gold, studded jewelry.
