#So Laid Back


So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back So Laid Back

Photography: Rishabh Maliwar || Bralette : Zivame | Singlet: Colaba Causeway | Belt: H&M | Jeans: Forever 21 | Shoes: Adidas Superstars

Impromptu shoots are the best! And yes, this too was one of those spur- of-the-moment kinda shoots. If you follow me on my social media, you’d actually witness the fun we had shooting this look. From endless laughter due to uncomfortable posing (I don’t know how Kim Kardashian does it!) to squinting eyes due to the harsh sunlight, this shoot was such a delight! Also, because my photographer Rishab is the sweetest guy ever!

Coming to the look, a straight up casual OOTD consisted of a pair of trusted denims with a boho-printed singlet over a bralette. A black belt and a pair of cool kicks were just what I needed to accessorise the look for the day. Such a sporty meets sexy kinda look is the safest bet for a Friday, I’d say. So tell me how much you liked this look by commenting below.

xx until next time!

#Festive Season Is The Reason


Happy Diwali Happy Diwali f4 Happy Diwali Happy Diwali Happy Diwali

There is really no festival like Diwali. The festival not only illuminates our home but also showers us with gifts, relatives (who make time to come and visit) and loads of sweets (did I mention my love for kheer?). To dress up for so much fun is another task! Isn’t it? So out came my favourite anarkali. I know that we’re supposed to wear something new on this day but the new things I bought were far away from anything traditional (blame it on H&M!).

So this look is all about the regal vibes. Since the outfit in itself is so dressy with all the different kinds of work on it, I chose to go with just a pair of statement jhumkas. That’s all the accessory this look needed! A pair of my current favourite footwear (yes, I’m obsessed with juttis!) completed the look with ease.

So share with me how you celebrate Diwali and most importantly, what did you wear?!

Since we’re about to dive into the festive season (not to mention the grand wedding season) here are some ethnic inspiration you can grab.

1. All shine

2. Embellished elegance

3. Busy prints for the win

4. The cape story

5. Sari not sorry

6. All-white everything!

The Diwali campaign that got your massive love and support in 2015 is back! Last year, you all really made a big difference by pledging to #BeTheirSuperhero and sharing your own pet’s pictures and the love you have for your little best friends. This year, as Diwali is just around the corner, we bring out the big guns (rather the cute guns) and urge you to celebrate this festival of lights, noise-free.

Last year, the dogs had a special message for you’ll and this time us (the dog owners and the dog lovers) have a message for our four-legged superheroes who’re in our homes or even outside on the streets! For all the times they were our superhero…we thank them and pledge to step up our game this Diwali and be their shields!

Make sure you share the video and spread the word so like last year, this year you #BeTheirSuperhero too!

Thanking all the dogs and the dog owners who came together to be a part of this campaign and everybody who actually cares for our little fellas during Diwali. Wishing you all a joyous Diwali!

Big love!

#Pump Up The Basics!

I’ve never been the great minimalist when it comes to my personal style (for those who really know me, know this very well about me!). Perhaps I never grew out of the ‘dressing up’ phase. But all said and done, I do understand the essentials of basics; speaking of which one needs to own a good pair of white sneaks! I know Adidas Superstars are no new launch but somehow like half a billion people around the globe, I’m a huge fan of them!

 

Sticking to my vibrant palette, I choose a cut-out coral top and paired it with this skort (yes, that’s a thing now!). You could style this skort with a monochrome top as well but (like in life) I chose colour! To keep up with the atheleisure trend just make sure to take stripes and pair them up with the right kind of sneakers. Yes, that’s my secret to rocking this trend! If you’ve already got your hands on these Superstars, then take inspiration from some guys who really style them a level up! (Like me!)

Style them with your gym clothes like it’s the norm!

Goes well with military green and short skirts!

Missing NY extra today 😒 #sickofboston

Pair em’ up with your go-to LBD!

Work it with some prints!

Accessorise them with your cape!

#Reverie Reign – #HippiequeTravels To Palolem (Goa)

Goa is not just a destination, it’s a state of mind! From rhythmic ocean waves to soothing sand manicures, friendly locals to raging firangs…this place really has it all. This post was unconsciously tucked away in one of the “shoot folders.” Only when I was planning my next Goa trip did I remember to visit these pictures and finally decided to blog. So it’s safe to say that this post is a reverie flashback!Β After a peaceful stroll at the white sand beach of Palolem, I got back to my comfortable beach view hut at the CiaransΒ and decided to do a quick photo shoot.Β Impromptu shoots are the best!

This post is also my very first #HippiequeTravels post! Personally, my favourite part of Goa is a small beach called as Palolem located in South of Goa. This beach use to be one of not-so-known beaches 5-6 years back and thus was an untouched paradise. Today it’s the cool concoction of Baga street madness with Ashwem’s beautiful sand stretch. Palolem has it’s own street shopping lane before you enter the beach (Pro tip: Haggle the hell outta the vendors) and it also has some amazing on-the-beach shacks/bars that will guarantee the best night of your life (I vouch for it!). Palolem also has Silent Noise – The Club, it’s India’s first club that has an all head-phones party! So you come to the club, put on a pair of headphones, select the kind of music you want to groove to and watch other people do the same. The coolest part is when you take off your head phones and watch people around you go crazy with absolutely no music! LOL. Here are few other reasons why I love South Goa over the over-commercialized North Goa.

It’s drop dead beautiful white sand beach

With cute eateries/bars with cool graffiti walls (calling all the art junkies)

You can enjoy your poison and still feel like you’re in heaven!

You can rent out a float and chill on the gentle waves

Killer location for photo shoots a.k.a making digital memories!

So since we’re on the verge of bidding the dreadful monsoons goodbye. I have booked my tickets for Goa in the coming month. See ya there amigos!

#When In Doubt, Denim It Out!


Denim it out Denim it out Denim it out Denim it out Denim it out Denim it out

If you find a girl who lives in her jeans then just marry her! I’d like to believe that girls who opt for denims over anything else are more composed in life. They have that stability with a hint of adventure that makes them irresistible. Now before you think this is a ‘paid’ blog post for Levi’s or diesel, lemme say NO, it’s not! Denims are a state of mind, a beautiful, adventurous and wild state of mind that every girl should be in.

With the denim-on-denim trend hitting the streets since a while now, I couldn’t think of a cooler go-to style!Β So I thought let me put together a fundamental denim-on-denim look that can be worn for picnic, shopping, to friend’s house, movies… basically anywhere!

All you need-

1) Well fitted pair of denims (the more distressed the better!)
2) A plaid shirt/ singlet (because plaid is another chic trend that is going no where any time soon)
3) A white pair of sneakers (what’s better than the Adidas Originals superstar?)
4) A black choker ( Again a HUGE trend right now!)
5) Denim state of mind!

This is pretty much the simplest look to nail all the current trends. Even Mr.Goofy approves! (Yes, I am aware that my dog looks cuter than me) So hope you’ll go back to your throwback days and motivate yourself to fit into your favourite pair of jeans because – when in doubt, just denim it out!
