Its that time of the year for sunscreen, facial tissues and rivulets of sweat running down places they shouldn’t be. Which is precisely why its time for all things white and nothing tight. 😛 In the below slides, you see the specimen trying to stay hydrated, not burn to a crisp and look presentable on camera … AND FAILING! But I will be practicing again this weekend 😉 Have a wonderful friday and folks in america; make the most of the extra holiday! 😀
With the weather getting slightly cooler here, I am wondering if summer is truly over or if this is another one of New york weather’s sick games.. the mean mean place! 😛 I used to belong to the camp that thinks shorts are work-inappropriate but when you know summer’s running out on you, you have little choice than to wear them while you can. I wore this printed pair with a silk button down hoping that maybe I could fool everyone into thinking I could be going to work rather than a vacation!? Just maybe? 😀
Maybe I miss my long hair… * a touch of nostalgia* or maybe I really like the setting.. maybe it’s just the fact that the long weekend is round the corner and am ready for it, either way I wanted to post this! 😛 I really liked this look I put together while on a mini vacation.. Just a basic stripe tee paired with shorts and a chunky neck piece to add some interest. …which reminds me.. I need to pick my outfits for this weekend 😀 Happy wednesday!
New York summer has been surprisingly mild this time( Please stay this way). There’s a mellow sunshine all day that makes it perfect to stay outdoors, lounge in a park with a fat book sipping on iced tea… in a pair of easy shorts.. the baggier the better! 😀 This has been my lazy weekend uniform…I just need to keep remembering to reapply sunscreen 😛 Enjoy your friday you’ll!
This outfit is the answer to NY’s<or wherever applicable> weather vagaries… drapey shorts to combat the morning mugginess and a light weight jacket to keep you “the-right-amount-of-cozy” at the end of the day.. in a gorgeous pastel palette that still manages to cling on to the remnants of summer while moving into fall 😀 ❤
Heading out doors? The beach maybe? Give your favorite tee a break and pull on a shirt instead, you look more put together while still keeping it causal! And feel free to go crazy with your colors…. like I did with this cobalt one – perfect for the last few remaining weeks of summer B) Say what?
ALSO HERE’S WISHING ALL FELLOW INDIANS A VERY HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! JAIHIND 🙂
Going by the number of views I got on my post yesterday, I must say this idea wasn’t so bad after all:) Thank you everyone! So in line with the polka challenge, here’s my 2nd out fit in the series – shorts and dots for WORK! I don’t know about you’ll but I somehow always think of the beach and the outdoors when I think shorts! Even for someone who works in the fashion industry, in my head I equate shorts to flip flops- inappropriate for work but no one is going to tell you that :P! But when it is as hot as it is, you are forced to exercise your creativity in more ways than one . The result- A tailored pair of slim shorts cut longer, a slouchy polka blouse in a bright color,neutral accessories and pop lips! Voila!:)
Self explanatory poetic title as you can see 🙂 I was never a shorts person.. skirts yes, dresses yes.. but say shorts.. and I would run a mile.( It might be interesting to mention I now could run a few miles on the treadmill wearing shorts everyday :P) But desperation(read: crazy heat) is the mother of all experimentation and cut to the present- you have yourselves a shorts aficionado! Now I think I am wearing them a little too much.. especially this olive pair 🙂
Of course I blame the excessive heat for my terrible post titles and incessant ranting:P (Cue for everyone else who lives in hotter areas( hello my friends from India) to do a MASSIVE eyeroll!) Anyway this weekend, Prat and I had an agenda.. the outdoors felt like a sauna, but that didn’t stop either of us from slathering on some heavy duty sunscreen, pulling on some easy clothes, and taking on the sun with our little straw hats… The war was on and yes.. this post was born!:P Also you must have guessed who won the battle after seeing our triumphant smiles below 😉
Come summer, and crochet comes with it bringing a touch of handcrafted feminine charm to your outfit! And the best part – you still stay airy while the sun
beats shines down on you 🙂 If that weren’t enough, these patterned pretties look great as a cover up on the beach, on a pair of shorts for a day out, a cute little vest over your sundress, thrown over a pastel tank and pretty much everything else… even on accessories!
