Happily Grey

Hello, stunners! How ya all have been? Well, I am still here in the same weather and my boots and late for a sundowner party.

I love any party that has good food, music and wine, but sundowners in Mumbai in these times is – hell no. I say “hell no!” because the summer heat index of this city right now is what exactly hell must feel like.

So after the thoughtful rejection of about every outfit in my collection and feeling sorry for myself and wanting to curl up in the bed at the same time, I decided to wear my all time favourite thing – leggings and boots. I am a leggings and boots gal after all.

I see my cell phone ring and update my girlfriend on what I narrowed down to. Yes, it’s of prime importance to #havethetalk with your shopping buddy, so as to not show up in the same outfit #awakwardalert. Yes, it has happened before. But she tells me ‘leggings are not pants’ and ‘brown does not go with black’. Period!

So here I am, like a true #rebel (yes, I love Madona to0) decide to prove her wrong.

I pull out my fav patterned black leggings with a leather patch, I bought from Splash Fashions and I am just amazed the way it hugs me. #turelove is overseeing the flaws and hiding from the outside world after all. Exactly like the way it hides my love handles. I pair it with a black camisole I bought from Forever 21 and put on a crosia grey top from Splash Fashions again. I completed the look with my brown suede boots from Carlton London, fringe bag from Splash Fashions, earrings from Forever New, finger rings from Tanishq.

Happily Grey

I got done with my photo-shoot in one of my most loved locations in South-Bombay, The Central Library. I have just way too many amazing memories of the place and the pictures didn’t disappoint me either.

I showed up at the party and my friend smiled and rushed me to the dance floor and I forgot all about proving my point. That’s life I guess. Good mood, food, music and friends and you let go of all the drama.

Here are the pictures from the shoot:

Blame It On My Roots, I Showed Up In Boots

A  very warm welcome to my blog, it’s my first blog post, so please be kind and patient, I have been told those are the key elements, needed in abundant quantities to get a hang of me.

Moving on, what the song implied in the title? No no, I ain’t ruining any black tie affair, was just struggling very had to get ready for a Sunday brunch with my ladies, after a very long-late-n-tiring Saturday affair.

Apart from the lack of sleep and the evident hangover, what was really irritating me that day was the weather. Yes, the summers are about to start, but if you belong from Mumbai or have visited Mumbai during summers, you know all about the oppressive-humidity-stories. As a cumulative result to all that, I was in no mood to get ready and let alone be dolled up for the event.

Thinking of strongly-valid reasons to not show up and daydreaming of an afternoon nap, I am reminded of the weekend getting over. That thought is enough to get me off my bed, try the only  hangover remedy known to me, taking a relaxing shower and a high carb breakfast, I powered through to the dressing table!

Scanning my wardrobe for the gazillionth time, I did land on something to wear. #proudmoment. I picked up this maxi dress I got from Lifestyle stores of the brand AND by Anita Dongre. You have to give it to the magic of a printed maxi dress with a slit, it works its way even on those bloated-tummy-days. The fabric of this dress is very smooth and relaxing for summers and the fitting  highlights your curves in such a subtle way that you’ll fall in love with it. The slit adds to the drama and also keeps you in a breezy place. What can I say, it’s a perfect summer wear. I completed the look with my always go to brown suede boots from Carlton London and following my minimal approach, danglers and finger rings from Accessorize.


I took off from home, grabbed a nariyal-pani on the way, got done with the photo shoot and showed up at the brunch in my boots. It was a lovely afternoon with all my girl-gang sipping mojitos and sangrias, troubleshooting each other’s lives and witnessing everyone dressed in those bright summer colors. I wished I stayed back, but I am glad I showed up.


Have a look at the pictures:
