Playing with neons & pastels

Neons are THE COLORS of this season. 

Personally, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to try on something that was all neon. ( may be its because, for some stupid reason , I feel that neons just don’t go with my complexion … don’t pay attention to me 😐  )
Not wanting to go all in – I decided to try my neon-yellow skirt with something lighter. ( and I love it – isnt it fun when such small risks pay off 🙂 

I feel like its like moving along with the yin& the yang… where 2 pieces complement each other so well  – they make up a whole.

I am also wearing my two favorite pieces – the bird charm necklace ( aren’t all the charms dangling off it so cute ) and the very much in fashion earcuff  !

Neons and pastels are both a rage this season.. Try whipping out pieces from your closet and have fun with these palettes !

Easy Breezy Summer Essentials

As the mercury rises , our hands and minds automatically start gravitating towards shorts,cottons and tanks in the closet.
But not all heat waves need to be faced with super-short shorts.
There are so many fun and flirty ways you can add the oomph to the lightweight outfits.

Here are some of  my picks for the summer – to stay cool and stylish and not break the bank at the same time 🙂

Juliet Off-shoulder Dress : Free People
Asos Shirt Dress : Asos
Zara High-Heel Shoes : Zara

Top Favourite : 
The off-shoulder dress is on the top of my list… its black ( can never go wrong with that ) , shows a little skin and comes with a dash of comfort and style. Can be worn to a party or to the pool-side. Gotta love versatility 🙂

Floral Inspirations ~

I am such a summer-girl (#summergirl – you know what I mean if you follow me on instagram 🙂 ) and I love all things floral. This dress is my new bff everytime I open my closet. I want to wear it allday – everyday
The cool part about this dress is – its self-designed 🙂
My mom and I went fabric hunting, when I was in Bombay last month and put our heads together to finalize the silhouette.

(That’s actually something my mom and I love doing everytime I go home – all year round we keep taking notes of things that inspire us – and then when we get-together , we go fabric hunting and give life to our ideas 🙂 ( more to come on this soon … )

Another thing I like about this dress , is that its very versatile – can be worn during the day with flip-flops and with pumps for a dinner-date.

Changing seasons provide so much inspiration – we just need to look around and find what complements our style.
Look around and see what inpires you & think about how it can be incorporated in your daily style and lives 🙂

Treasure Hunt ~

While just scouring the net for a specific shoe , I stumbled upon this site : The Hunt 

I absolutely love the brains behind this “shopping-as-a-treasure-hunt” site and trust me – it is very addictive.
You post a picture of an item you are looking for and an entire community of people try to help you by suggesting where you can find your swags. That can be really helpful at times !

Do you think you’ll be placing a treasure on the site to be found or helping someone with their treasure hunt 🙂
