Blogging with a demanding infant is certainly one of the biggest challenges I am facing at the moment. I was hoping to do this outfit post/shoot ages ago but something or the other kept me busy.

There are days when the sheer of cycle of feeding, cleaning, soothing her leaves me exhausted to the core. So exhausted, that getting dressed up and going out somewhere to do a shoot is the last thing in my mind. Some days getting even ten minutes all to myself seems like an impossible task and if I do I would rather sleep more. But seeing my little one grow (each day) is the big reward I get at the end of it all. And when she recognizes me and gives me a knowing smile; tiredness is quickly forgotten and I end up marveling at this little human being that I (with a little help from hubby 😉 ) created.

Back to the outfit. Pastels are my perennial favourite—pastel shades are feminine, fun and versatile. Here, I’ve paired a pastel green dip hem top with black leggings .A simple outfit perfect to enjoy a day out  with your little one.  I’ve added a tribal style statement necklace to give this simple ensemble some oomph.

Sixty three days postpartum my body is slowly, steadily but surely coping up with the challenges of Motherhood and that for me is the silver lining. 🙂

I love the charm of braids and although not good at creating different styles, I still try my hand at easy ones.

Giles’ SS14 teased side braids stunned the Front Row at the LFW. Here, I try it with minimal products and minimal time 😉

Curly hair care

After Washing and conditioning my dry hair, I slightly twisted my damp hair with my fingers.

I then spritzed on some Sea Spray Hair Mist by Lush.

Then I took my hair to one side and (opposite my hair parting) teased it with a teasing comb.

After dividing my hair in two parts, I twisted it slightly and put it one on top of the other like a rope. Ta da, it was done.

Final step was taking all the loose ends on the nape of neck and securing it with a pin.

My Verdict: It is an easy-peasy hairstyle that can be done in minutes with minimum products yet looks chic always. So thumbs up to this trend 🙂

Every woman should have a perfect spring dress in her wardrobe and this pretty aqua number is my favourite this Spring. It is simple yet chic and sits perfectly on my growing curves.

Sometimes, a bright, happy colour is just the thing you need to get you out of pregnancy tiredness and your snugly duvet. So ladies, no need to shy away from bright colours your mind and your body will love it ;).

 

There are fashion trends that come and go and there is way of life. The minimalist monochrome look is definitely a way of life. I am not surprised that this “trend” keeps coming back in new avatars every now and then.

Even a person like me who loves her colours, I can’t resist the monochrome look–it is simple yet chic.

As Leonardo da Vinci famously said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” And the minimalist monochrome look certainly epitomises this simple philosophy.

I am not the one who blindly follows fashion trends and be a fashion victim but then there are some trends that I just love and adore incorporating. This SS14, it is all about the pastel trend for me. I guess this trend keeps coming back for a good reason: there is nothing more feminine, romantic and deliciously wonderful about pastel colours. My favourite pastel colours? It has to be pink and lilac. I swore by these colours even before it became fashionable to do so. Needless to say, I am rocking this trend even on my 24th week of pregnancy. Who says style and pregnancy cannot go there?

Here, I have combined two pastel shades–lilac and pink for a cool colour blocking look (another  favourite) and have paired it with my trusty jeggings and ankle boots. I have added a leopard print bag to up the ante of the look.

There is an innate sweetness not to mention happiness about the pastel look and  I would be definitely incorporating more of pastels, will you?
