The Bags Under My Eyes Are Chanel–Anonymous
My style like my mood is varied: it oscillates between comfy and girl next door one time and becomes bold and daring the other. It is hence safe to say that I am naturally drawn to brands and shops that offer a plethora of variety under one roof. SheIn is one such place where you can get great variety of styles for affordable prices. My this post is a collaboration with Shein. I must say as a fashion blogger, I do get a fair share of collaboration requests but I only work with those brands which appeals to my personal aesthetics.
As you know, I am having a maxi dress moment and the minute I saw this split maxi wrap dress with geometric print, I was instantly drawn towards it. This style is perfect for bidding adieu to summer. Crisp and airy, the geometric lines gives this dress an instant playful vibe. Pair with nifty accessories like bold earrings, cocktail ring, bangles, a hat and fringe booties and you have nailed the uptown girl avatar effortlessly. Maxi dresses are indeed versatile hence it is no wonder that this trend dominated the catwalks of McQueen, Alberta Ferretti and Erdem this summer.
Fashion, as I always say can be armour to take away of the mundanity of daily life. And whilst many will dismiss it as unnecessary vanity, I disagree. Au contraire. I say if something as simple as a dress can bring you happiness then why not? Don’t you agree? Let me know your thoughts.

Stressed. Depressed. But well dressed–Anonymous
Who would have ever thought that a thing once considered a big fashion no-no would become an ubiquitous trend almost overnight? I am talking about the shirt dress over jeans trend that seems to have swept street style mavericks and Instagrammers. After sitting on the fence for a long time, I too have jumped in this wagon. At first glance, this look seems intimidating and too fashion-y to be pulled off in real life. But here, I will show that this look is easy to achieve and with a dollop of fun (not to mention) ease to it.
In theory the idea of pairing a calf length dress with jeans should not work but as you can see it does. The trick here is to play with proportions, colour and style. The easiest (and in my book the best) way to nail this look is to pair a light weight shirt dress with skinny jeans.
Add nifty accessories like a bracelet, rings, flats and oversized glasses and you have got an effortless casual yet chic style. This look does not have to be casual though, add heels, ripped jeans, a statement jacket and super cute bag (like a geometric clutch) and you have a look for the evening.
Shirtdress+Jeans: Debenhams (also like this one), Flats: India, Accessories: Tenerife/Dubai, Glasses: Hubby’s
I have opted for a casual look here because this was a day trip to Lavender Fields in Surrey (Near London) (More on that later) but I cannot wait to try the night time look to see how I can glam up the humble shirt dress.
A special thanks to my friend Sai for taking some of the photos here and as always my dear hubby as well :0)

Be so good, they can’t ignore you: Steve Martin
I think I speak for all womankind, when I confess that even the best fashionista gets stumped whilst choosing the perfect bridesmaid dress. I mean forget the usual concerns about fit and style, there are zillion other things to think of! Can we opt for ivory /white? Should it be long and flowing or short, simple and chic? Is it long enough or too long? Is it too short?
When I saw this blush pink dress (in TK Maxx) I knew I have found the perfect bridesmaid dress. There is something ethereal about the blush pink colour that you simply cannot ignore. Add to it, the spiffy lace details which gives it a romantic feel.
I have kept the accessories minimal. Golden earrings, bangles, statement necklace and floral headband. I have opted for rose gold heels. Simplicity as they is the key to sophistication and this kind of style brims with both.
So, what do you think of this idea? Are you a not-so-blushing bridesmaid or do you like to play safe? Let me know what’s your favourite bridesmaid dress idea in the comments and make my day!

“Beauty begins the moment, you decide to be yourself”–Coco Chanel
Summer and denim shorts are one of the best fashion relationship you can ever find. In Britain, there was a glimmer of summer few weeks ago when it was gloriously sunny for half a day (and if you missed it then too bad). Denim shorts are perfect for summer–laidback, chic and versatile. These are just some of the ways you can describe denim shorts.
There are zillion ways to style them–wear with Breton top for a Parisian feel or with a slogan tee, bomber jacket and sporty shoes for casual evening with friends. Polish it up with a boyfriend blazer and wedges for a night or go girly (like I have done here) for a beach day trip.
I have paired my denim shorts with a cold shoulder top which I last wore here. Because of the coral piping on the top, I have also added coral earrings. Finally, to add a bit of zing to the outfit, I have added a scarf which I have used in a “few” different ways here. First, I used it as a bun tie (no images) then head band and then finally belt. I have sealed the look with simple flip flops and an anklet because it is a beach and less is more here.
