If you have been following my blog, you would have noticed that I do have a sort-of unhealthy obsession with the colour White. Next to Pink, I think White is my favourite colour. I love it for its versatility and every summer, a white jacket enters my heart and subsequently my closet. Last summer, it was all about this Gap number which I used (and abused). And this year, despite being 37 weeks pregnant feeling annoyingly huge and tired I still managed to get my favourite wardrobe hero.

I love an outerwear that can be used during sunny days as well as rainy days (as is the norm here in UK) and this jacket fits the bill perfectly. And the fact that it can worn in zillion ways– with leggings, over a dress or a skater skirt is definitely a plus.

So do you have any such must-have wardrobe obsessions? Do let me know in the comments section.

I do apologise for the images, it was one of the those annoying rainy weekend here in UK and even though there was no opportunity to step out and do the shoot, I knew I had to do it for the sake of my sanity 😉

Have a great mid-week and do give me your likes and comments. 🙂

 

If you’ve been following my blog, you will notice that I am vehement about promoting positive body image. It is natural to feel a bit lost when it comes to pregnancy and style when your body is a cocktail of hormones and growing every single day but I insist dear ladies (and gentlemen) it is a wonderful journey which will make you respect your body more than before.

My tips to embrace style in pregnancy and be the chic mum? Stretch fabrics, playing around with colour and most importantly a confidence that you are nothing less than a Goddess. Here are some of the popular looks, I’ve experimented with throughout these 36 weeks.

Tousled or Mermaid Waves were frequently show cased in several SS14 shows like Mulberry and Versace. I absolutely adore this look as it is laid-back and carefree written all over it. Yes, there are many ways to achieve the perfectly imperfect tousled waves using a plethora on curling irons and what-nots. But I am the lazy girl with absolutely no patience for curling irons (plus the fact I never can get them right ;)). So, I have an easy-peasy solution for getting this style with cascading waves.

For starters, I massaged my hair with almond and olive oil both known to nourish and moisture hair. After keeping it for an hour (longer the better), I washed it off with John Frieda’s smooth start shampoo and conditioner (you can use any good shampoo/conditioner for wavy/curly hair). After towel drying my hair for about ten minutes, I applied a dollop of their Unwind Curls Calming Creme (again this is what I’ve at the moment, you can use any). Blow dry your hair roughly and make it about 60% dry. Make two pigtails or one big plait depending on what kind of waves you want. Leave it overnight or for 5-6 hours.

The next day (or after 6 hours), gingerly take out your plaits and finger comb your hair puffing it little near the crown. Voila! You and your uber-cool tousled waves are now ready.

My verdict: This is perhaps my all-time favourite hairstyles simply because it so easy to pull-off and I know for a fact that everyone gives you a second look (for good reasons) in this hair style. This is my I-am-too-cool care look and hence this trend definitely wins hands down ;).

Who would have thought that the humble pony tail would take the runway and the glitterati by storm? I do admit ponytails can never be a passing trend this is an evergreen hairstyle that comes in different avatars each year. With sports luxe being a major trend how can the effortless pony tail hairstyle be left behind? From DKNY to Victoria Beckham, from celebrities like Popy Delevinge to Scarlett Johansson  everyone will show you that the pony tail is no longer just for gym. Here’s my take on the trend.

Look 1– Sleek, low pony tail:

After straightening my wavy hair, I have simply taken it and tied it with an elastic. I have taken few strands from front to soften my look. For loose ends, I have used two bobby pins on the back. This one is definitely a hairstyle that will take you less than five minutes.

Look 2–Curly side low pony

After defining my curls, following the steps mentioned here. I have simply taken my hair from the left side (leaving a few in front of the left ear) and taken it to the opposite side, I have simply tied all my hair in an elastic and have tucked the left-out hair on the other side in twists. Another 5 minute hairstyle; the only thing to remember when dealing with curly hair is to appreciate and respect the sanctity of your natural curls rather than fiddling with it too much.  This would be my go-to hairstyle for a date night as it is messy and slightly whimsical.

Look 3–Curly high pony

Once again after defining my curls, I have taken all my hair using my fingers and tucked it in an elastic. Taking my pony just below the crown and slightly towards the side. For volume, I have simply puffed the hair on crown using my fingers.

My verdict for this trend: It is easy, fast to pull, looks good on everyone and can be interpreted in thousand ways. What’s not to love? 😉

Ever since I saw Kerry Washington in a crop top whilst pregnant; I have been obsessed. I have been toying with the idea for ages and I must confess I never dared this look even when I was not pregnant. But l finally decided to man up and sport one last weekend during my mini-vacation. I started my 31st week then and I had no idea why I decided to take this style challenge upon myself.

I picked up this crop style light cardigan on a whim and teamed it up with a pencil skirt. I realised most pregnant women stay away from pencil style but I can vouch that it is quite flattering which will only compliment your curves.
