Casual comfort












Been lying in bed all day though it's Monday, wasn't feeling very well so didn't end up going to work. Well,I thought of doing a quick post and turn this day into something little more productive. This weekend has been super busy for me, was shooting with a new photographer yesterday and I must say she was quite talented, can't wait to see the photos. Saturday was again a long day, went for shopping, then for a long drive, took some photos for my blog and went out for dinner. Since I knew I was going to be out all day, I wore something very casual and comfortable, it was beautiful a sunny day too.
Here, I am wearing this black and white mini dress over some printed tights, threw on a classic jean jacket which I have had since past 6-7 years (they still fit me and never go out of style). Don't know why but I am into hats lately, here I am wearing this black fedora by Tie Rack and for shoes, I went with the black booties(styled previously here). For jewellery, I went with big silver hoop earrings and black bangles. This outfit is very casual and comfortable and has some chic flare to it.

Stay stylish!

Tweeding......


Having a fashion blog has given me the opportunity to experiment with different clothes and styles that I wouldn't have tried otherwise. I've been playing with different colors, textures, prints and patterns and to create fun and interesting pairings.I recently took out this tweed jacket I had which was lying at the back of my closet and tried paring with few of my favorite and essential wardrobe pieces, turns out it goes with almost everything. Since then I've been wearing this jacket to work, night outs, day outs, well basically everywhere. The fresh lime green color and updated style makes it perfect to fit in today's fashion.





Here, I styled my jacket with a fun and flirty hi- low chiffon skirt. I threw on my black leather boots (previous styled here) as they are super comfortable, stylish; just perfect for chilly winter evenings and super fun to pair along with a feminine & delicate skirt. I am loving the juxtaposition of tweed against chiffon and a feminine skirt against hardy leather boots. For the jewelry, I'm wearing my goldtone cuffs which I absolutely love and  are making a debut on my blog:)
Though Tweed is popularly known for country wear, it's back in fashion and is here to stay. After all, they dress up nicely and  add texture & dimension to any plain outfit. I'll definitely be making more posts on styling this jacket with different outfits.

Stay stylish!
