FALL SHORTS


In conjunction with moments of spending quality time with family and friends in India, occasions for dressing up have also been in surplus. Beginning with Nagpur and then Delhi and now till my final stop Ranchi, I've had ample chances of wearing pretty and looking put together. Despite this over the top partying, deciding what to wear has been a breeze, mainly coz the weather has been warm and favorable for some lot of skin-baring.I am glad I brought these shorts with me, they really came in handy for an evening out at my brother-in-law's restaurant in Delhi. Apparently my weather speculation for India was on point and so was the packing.




I'M WEARING 

peplum top- H&M (same)   ( full sleeve option )
jacquard shorts- NY&Co. ( printed )
necklace - Forever 21 ( another spectacular option )




  A friendly reminder- Style Swap Tuesdays is still live and accepting trendy looks from fashionable applicants. ;) 




Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

LAND MEETS SEA ( STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS )


My title for today's blog post comes from the overlapping shell print dress and leopard print trench. They might be two different, unrelated prints, but the juxtaposition of one thing calm and dainty and the other wild and fierce works, at least for me it does. What say ???






 



I'M WEARING

shell print dress- Ellen Tracy via Macys ( another shell print option )
leopard trench- BCBG Max Azria ( option under $75 )
miniaudiere - borrowed from cousin ( similar )
black wedge pumps- Charles and Keith ( patent leather )





Now it is your turn to show your juxtaposed style.









Have a great day and thanks for stopping by .

KEEPING IT BRIGHT AND LIGHT

Had I been in the States now, I would have been buried under dark, wool-laden jackets. Thinking of the dreadful US cold kind of intimidates me. But I feel lucky to be here in India, enjoying a few more days of layer-free weather. And trust me I am making the most of it. Sleeveless, short sleeves, bright colors and light blazers paired with  full length bottom has become my uniform and I am loving it.
I've somewhat refrained from wearing too much red in one outfit,  but today I stepped outside my comfort zone and took the plunge of wearing red both on my lips and in my jacket. The minimal jewelry approach was deliberate and meant to offset this boldness.To add a lil interest comes in the animal print clutch in a neutral color palette. 
I kind of like the red on red look.
What do you think of this bright but light look ???






 


I'M WEARING :

blazer- from India ( similar from J Crew )
gray top-Banana Republic ( H&M option for $10, designer )
silk palazzo- gift from Sister ( option for less )
clutch- WHBM ( splurge  )
nude sandals - Zara ( Steve Madden  )



Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
