But, does my bindi match my boots?

I feel #blessed coming from such a diverse & rich culture & even more lucky to be able to mix my western & Indian clothes. My all time obsession is cotton Kurta’s, I literally pair them with denims, shorts, palazzo pants (current obsession) & better yet thigh high boots. Having such diversity in my wardrobe allows me to experiment with my everyday look & put together pieces which I would previously shy away from.

If you told me two years ago to rock a bindi, jhumkis & a kurta to work, I’d laugh & say “hell to the no boo”!

Ask me the same question today & I’m all like “HELL TO THE YEAH” with remnants of  Amla oil in my hair. Today I can say with a certain conviction I’m more comfortable in rocking a kurta with boots or even juttis with jeans.

Is it always about the shirt?

 

Just like Carrie’s Dior Newspaper print dress, these panelled denim cutoffs continuously make appearances in my #ootd. The only difference is that Carrie is wearing Dior & I can only dream of Dior….

Back to the point, these denims can be paired with absolute anything – a white tee, a canary yellow blazer , a top hat or even a red mirchi shirt!

Some say vacation is a state of mind, however, vacation for me is:

  1. Sitting on a plane for 23.5 hours
  2. Wearing denim overalls
  3. Drinking beer from a plastic cup

 

And that’s exactly what I did! I travelled to India in December and had a an AH-MAZING holiday! I mostly enjoyed eating my way through India & exploring different cities. Each day was different and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end 2015 and begin 2016!

Until next time…
