Gingham Blouse by Shein

I have never seen elegance go out of style—Sonya Teclai

A very Happy New Year to all my amazing readers and blogging friends. I hope your year started with a bang.

As I mentioned in my previous post, New Year means a time for new opportunities, new challenges and new adventures. For me, it is also the time to step back, introspect and re-invent myself. When I am talking about re-invention, i am not merely talking about physical one. For me, this year, re-invention is focused more on emotional, mental and spiritual aspects.

It is about finding myself in the chaos and incessant chatter of life, it is about learning to let go and it is about de-cluttering my life of negativity, of toxic people, de-cluttering my mind and of achieving some clarity (at least that’s my aim, how much of this I achieve is a question of time).

At the same time, it is also about reinventing myself, learning new things, experimenting (sartorially and otherwise) and once again learning to have faith in me and in people around me.

To be honest, I was not too sure, on how I wanted to start the first fashion post of the year on this blog. I was toying if I should glam up or dress down. At the end, I chose what reckoned with me the most. If you know me, you know that l love all things quirky. So, when Shein asked me collaborate with them, I jumped in and chose this cute and quirky gingham billow sleeve blouse with cut out high neck.

It is chic, effortless, minimal, quirky (that word again!) and fun. These are the qualities i love and always aim for in my looks and in my life. I chose to pair with ripped jeans, a bright bag and to go back to my Indian roots—Indian style jhumkas. I love mixing oriental/Eastern elements with Western ones (and you will see such mash ups more often this year) and this is just an example how it can be done without going overboard. For footwear, I have used oldie but gold of an ankle boots. I chose this laid back style also because of the fact that it is still supremely cold in UK and I am not quite ready to let go of comfortable dressing. But this is a versatile blouse and I can totally see myself wearing it with black skirt and pumps in spring/summer.
