but, why?

I feel as if there has been a certain humdrum with blog lately and I’ve been extremely unmotivated to put words to website. I’m not sure what the reasoning behind my lack of creativity could be (FYI mercury was in retrograde), but I’m certainly feeling a shift in energy with my outfits lately.

It is getting cooler here & I’m trying to merge summer pieces into my winter outfits. However, when it comes down to a cute, floral print piece, I can’t say no. I type this as I sit in a black & yellow sunflower dress, with knee – high boots, internally cursing the person who sets the office temperature to a beautiful 19 degrees.

It is honestly a perfect addition & definitely a staple in your wardrobe. Dresses are super versatile, can easily be layered up with turtle necks, leather jackets, boots & Vans (Obviously!)

But, does it have to end?

My dear enchiladas this is the last outfit for the thigh high series on the blog. With Spring blossoming in T minus 2 days, I’m sure I’ll have to give these bad boys a rest soon enough & what perfect way to pair them with some good ol’ denims!

On my previous posts, I found myself talking about how I was breaking society norms one boot at a time & I will continue to stand up against trivial issues blown out of proportion by judgmental assholes who I hope are allergic to puppies!

I hope these last few outfits have inspired you to rock your thigh high boots with confidence, kewl & most importantly with conviction

But, what else do you have to offer?

2k17.

In the amidst of new jobs, old flames, bigger goals & many useless boys, I sometimes find myself questioning my recent blog shoot. If you’ve been following my Instagram or blog, you may have seen my experimental side awaken.

It’s not that I care if people can see a bit of nipple through my kurta but it’s the fact that people judge my character based on the clothes I wear. I like wearing shorts, crop tops, thigh high boots & dresses which show a decent amount of side boob, but that does not mean I’m ‘easy’, ‘cheap’ or a ‘slut’.

People are not what they seem based on the clothes they wear, there’s much more to someone than meets the eye. A women’s body is not a way to determine her character, but a way of expressing herself & her many forms.

But I have to ask, will this change?

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.
