Cape on the town

I love to complicate a simple outfit and that's I guess a big part of my personal style. While some like keeping it clean, I like to add a fun mix of elements to my looks. In this post I explore one of my recent favourites - the cape. This I prefer over a jacket for obvious weather reasons and also for the comfort factor.

A mix of some of the oldest possible things in the wardrobe, this post is part nostalgia and part an experiment to fit into older clothes.

The thing about capes:
- A versatile piece of clothing, throw it on with anything you wear like a dress, a pair of jeggings, wide leg pants and more. 
- Body shape no bar! Fits and sizes mean nothing to the forgiving cape. So pile on, mix and match and have all the fun you want.
- Dress me up or dress me down - imagine the same old pair of jeans and a tee combo being taken to a whole new level with the addition of a cape. You can then take this look to brunch, a movie date or even a glass of wine (or three) with friends. 
- And the finale: A fashion statement that never goes out of style because we are all about timeless ideas. 

This is what I wore for a quick lunch at Pizza Express

Italian Holiday

I never totally understood people when they spoke so passionately about travelling. I mean I enjoyed it but would much rather cosy up in a cafe in Colaba in my city where everything was familiar. After getting married and moving to a new country, embracing new places, new people and traditions didn't seem as bad as imagined. Travelling has become one such tradition we've adopted and I'm glad we did. It really opens the window to your soul. Seeing the world, exploring new cultures and cuisines with fabulous company is truly priceless. 
Here's just a glimpse of merely one part of my trip, my outfits. There's a lot of recycling since I was forced to packed light. Hope you like them! Do let me know in the comments section.
