Love For Block Prints

Hello Everyone!!!, First of all I wish all the wonderful women around the world HAPPY WOMEN’s DAY !!! 🧚‍♀️. I am so proud to be a women 👩‍💼.For me the word Women means a lot , it defines bravery, fearlessness, commitment, responsible and not giving up on her dreams . I got lot of motivation and zeal from most wonderful women on the Earth —my MOM, this post is dedicated to her and all women out there who inspire me to march towards my dreams.

This post is all about depicting Indian fabrics with contemporary style. My mom loves these fabrics her favorites are chiffon, georgette, silk and cotton even I developed interest on them because of her. My taste is more ethnic I prefer ikkat , pochampali and block prints more on Indian fabrics they give a modern look with traditional touch . The current on going trend in market is block prints and Ikkat. Many designers have fallen for them. The two outfits I have chosen are for family/ friends gatherings and religions gatherings as well.

I think I gave a lot of introduction, so now it’s time for my first outfit, I bought this from Fabindia- they have a huge collection of handmade ethnic fabrics. Its a flared long block print kurta. I liked the way they came with regular colors in a scenic way and red green and cream are most widely used colors so anyone would look good on this. What made me go for this one was the neck pattern it had boat neck pattern with frills near the shoulder . This was first time I had something like this. Coming to accessories, I’m not huge fan so I went with Jumkas you can also go with small studs or medium sized earring don’t go for too long ones, and simple chain on the neck like mine would be suitable , you can go with a single bangle or bracelet
And even watch would pair perfect as well. For footwear you can either go with my choice jutis that I wore as in the picture or any flats or ballet flats and even sandals would look good to.

The my next outfit is from Max, this is first time I have tried this store , I am impressed by their collection. This also has a flared style but this is like a maxi dress pattern kurta. It’s basically tie and die cotton kurta which gives you an impression of block pattern. I really love the colors, because of the colors I wanted this dress. Texture of this cloth is very smooth and soft . I accessorized this outfit similar lo the above one. Go for small and medium sized earrings , you can avoid wearing anything around neck as this outfit has closed neck style. I choose white heels ,as the kurta has bright colors so I didn’t want to over power my outfit, so white was the best option, even tan would also go.

For my Makeup I used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, bare minerals Pro powder, Rubywoo by MAC and Loreal divine wine lipstick shades.

Lastly spring is almost here, can’t wait for it no more snow.I’m so happy about it . This time Michigan had lots of snow and now its time for more sun and long duration of day.I hope you guys have fun reading this post and find some interesting ideas for your outfits. Waiting for your thoughts on this post…..

As  December is holiday month which means family and friends gathering,so a little occasion to get ready. But deciding an outfit for winter is little bit though as you want to wear warm clothes and at the same time you want to look trendy and easy to carry yourself. So with these things in mind I decided to go with the Sweater shirt and jeans.

So coming to my outfit, I had to attend brunch gathering with my friends at a local restaurant and it was snowing I thought to go with this yellow crop shoulder sweater from Forever21. I paired it with black jeans which is from American eagle outfitters. As Black and Yellow is old and perfect combination. I had very light make up and I paired up it with UGG Boots, you can even pair with any snow boots you want, any kind of boots would go easily with the outfit.

I hope you guys liked this outfit , please share your thoughts and let me know if you guys want more of these kinda looks. 😉 😀

Free Style Yellow Lace Dress

Hello everyone, hope you guys are having good summer time. I love summers; my favorite time of a bright summer day is early morning tea/coffee time and late evenings in the back yard with loved ones. This makes me want to go back to my childhood days, where summer was vacation time, no school just fun, crazy cousin & #39: s outing, Icee/Slurpee afternoons, board game evenings and late night card games, hmmm… I wish I could just stay in that time and never grow up. So, with this summer inspiration, I wanted my outfit to be fun something which would reflect summer colors, so here I present my Free Style Yellow Lace dress. Yellow – color of happiness, warmth and perfect summer color.

I purchased this dress from Loft Store. I wanted to go with yellow black combination, as Yellow and black is a classic combination. I can even suggest one more color choice, pair it up with blue. Lace dress is perfect for any occasion you can choose it for a grand event and even for a casual meeting, so depending upon occasion you can vary your dressing style by adding accessories and levitating makeup and hair look. I dressed up for casual occasion.

As it was a casual look; for my hair, I did light curls and had simple accessories like star earrings from Express, these are perfect for any look-formal to casual. As summer time is perfect for Lace up Zig Zag Sandals, I thought this would be good choice and it would add more elegant and classy look to the outfit, I even purchased them from Express they are very comfy and it was on sale!!!!! 🙂 and finally, never miss a matching hand bag, I paired up myself with a black Kate spade Street Stacy bag.

I hope you guys love this outfit. Please share your thoughts if you want me post pictures of the same outfit for a party look, let me know and please do let me know if you want me try something of your choice. I would love to do that.

Casual Summer Outfit

Welcome everyone Meena and Myself are excited to share my first summer outfit. The main reason to start my first post with this outfit as I always love to dress up in casual clothes, but at the same time I even wanted to look trendy and different.As in summer, we may have many casual social gatherings with friends and family and we often get stressed out what we need to wear which is comfortable , classy and even fashionable. With this outfit it doesn’t take much time to get ready. So below is the first look of my outfit.

IMG_5135

I recently purchased this top from Banana Republic and from then I dint get a chance to flaunt myself in this. I thought this would be perfect chance to try this on. What made me purchase this top was I loved the way shoulder pattern was designed it had cute bow knot which I felt was unique. Normally other stores have off shoulder pattern and crop shoulder and more over the fabric is cotton which is perfect for summers.

I matched my top with black skinny jeans as blue and black are perfect!!  and more over this jeans from American Eagle Outfitters is comfortable . This combination is perfect for morning time as well as evening time. I wanted simple accessories for my outfit as I wanted my outfit to emphasize as the colors were good enough to reflect my personality. I purchased these half moon earrings from express as they are good match with any light color outfits and I had this white lace choker from Forever21, which would add little element to my outfit and finally perfect handbag is a must so I had this katespade white Envelope clutch bag which made me look perfect

And finally I dint want my outlook to be overwhelming with matching accessories . I wanted to look little bit stand out , so I went for nude shade sandals which made total sense to my outfit and other thing was I had a simple everyday make up look for my hair I just straightened it.

So finally here is my first outfit hope you guys love it.

Love
