Three step formula to my outfit: #1 Elaborate layer: You’ll know my love for layers and this lightweight cape in powder blue was something I couldn’t resist.

Turning 30 was an exciting experience for me. Unlike popular culture, I am looking forward to this phase. You truly start understanding what you want by this age.

I have an aversion to plain and basics. It became clear to me when I bought this plain sweatshirt with the sole purpose to add these hand-made tassels (by my tailor of course). With the winter just around the corner, this sweatshirt is definitely going to be on a constant rotation. More DIYs here. I’m wearing: … Continue reading Tasseled

It’s amazing how a little outdoor time can make you feel so relaxed and happy. A quick shopping trip turned into evening tea so I’m layering cottons for a comfy look. I avoid wearing kurtas with leggings/jeggings and always opt for palazzos and wide pants. I like the silhouette much better. This is how I wore … Continue reading Soak up the sun

I was obsessed with the ‘3rd piece rule’ long before it became a legit term. To me, an outfit is incomplete without an added layer. From a waistcoat, blazer to a light jacket, it’s almost always imperative to have it on. Of course, I suffer through the hot summer days, then I thank fabrics like … Continue reading The Layerer

The designer duo started the brand only two years ago and is quickly gaining its due.

Lately, I’ve been very inspired by modestly dressed bloggers from the Middle East. I’m drawn to these hijabistas because they create a balance between their style and belief without losing touch with today’s world. It reminds me of this wonderful quote I read, “The clothes you wear reflect the things that are hidden deep inside … Continue reading Local Treasures
