This year I discovered my love for easy- breezy, super comfy cotton Palazzo pants. Why haven’t I been wearing them all these past years? I love how they fit -PERIOD. Palazzo pants cannot go wrong on anyone. They make your waist appear slimmer, hug you butt in the most perfect manner and then flare out to give your legs a lot of room to breathe. I have been pairing them with almost everything in my closet- be it a long shirt/ a tank top/ a long kurta / short kurta…
I paired my cotton printed palazzos with a simple sleeveless black kurti and to add some structure to the outfit I threw on a sleeveless cotton waist coat o top. I had to do a lot of running around on the day I wore this outfit, and what can be better than a pair of stunning leather Kohlapuri’s to make your feet look good and feel comfortable.
As for my accessories I wore my favourite antique silver necklace which I had picked up last year from Jaipur.. I love this piece of jewellery, it is so stunning! along with that I wore my gold coin ring and carried my Zara messenger bag. My newest obsession is to pair all things silver and gold together. I love how that looks.
Here are a few pictures of my #ootd

Me and my locks are the happiest during the cold months of the year. I could describe my hair as fine/ straight/ mid-length/ a tad bit oily and sometimes moody. You may feel I don’t like my hair much given the description but that’s not the case. I’m pretty ok with my hair actually, though sometimes I like to crib about them like all other girls ( guilty :p ). When it comes to hair care, I tend to be a little careless compared to maybe my skin care routine. I like to keep my hair care routine pretty simple and easy. I have a super oily scalp because of which I end up washing my hair at least 3-4 times in a week during summer and about 2-3 times in a week during winter.
I follow a pattern when it comes to getting my hair cut/ trimmed. Come every season change, it’s time for a trim – also a good way to remember when it’s due. I don’t experiment with my hair much; I stick to a basic trim just to clean up the ends. My past experiences have taught me not to experiment much with my hair (it has always turned out to be a disaster. Maybe I will share few pictures with you all on a day I am feeling brave- haha)
Here is a picture of the hair care products I’m currently using and enjoying 🙂
FEW HAIR CARE TIPS I HAVE LEARNT IN ALL THESE YEARS…
> Wash your hair as less as possible.
> Always de-tangle your hair before you step under the shower. Dry hair is a lot stronger than wet hair. Don’t comb your hair immediately after the shower; let them air dry first.
> Never skip the conditioner – hair feel thirsty too. Shampooing strips your hair and scalp of its moisture; conditioner helps retain the moisture level. If you have an extremely oily scalp -much like me – skip applying conditioner on the scalp. You can apply it just on the length of the hair.
> Use a pea-sized amount of serum on the ends of your hair to smoothen them out once your hair is towel dried. If you plan to use any hot tools on your hair, do it only after your hair is semi dry and make sure to use either a heat protector spray or some leave-in conditioner first. (I use the L’Oreal Iron finish leave-in conditioner – does wonders for me).
> Use a tangle teaser or a wide-mouthed comb before you use a regular comb or a paddle brush to de-tangle your hair. If your hair is really knotty like mine, I would recommend investing in a tangle teaser (trust me you will thank me for introducing you to this wonder hair brush). Always start combing your hair from the ends to the roots. This way you don’t end up tugging your hair which causes breakage.
> Last but not the least, eat healthy and drink plenty of water. This will help your hair look shiny and lovely. Let’s face it ladies – we abhor bad hair days.

Summer is on its way out and I couldn’t be happier. The slight nip in the air these days followed by the teeny-tiny winter season that barely lasts two months becomes quite valuable after the scorching heat that resides in Delhi for more than half a year.
The nippy weather in Delhi makes the perfect setting for an evening-out. I decided to head out in a floral, pastel maxi dress to a flea to bid adieu to summer. I have recently discovered my love maxis, which you can pick in cotton or flowe-y fabrics to make it fit for day or night. Lending you height, maxis can be quite flattering yet comfortable. Saying my goodbye to the heat in a easy-breazy maxi, I can’t wait to embrace Fall Fashion! Here’s looking forward to layering my outfits; pulling out my chunky knits; throwing on a warm fuzzy stole; bringing out my dark berry/wine lipsticks and wearing those knee high boots.

Somehow me and my girlfriends always end up meeting sometime during the evening, but as we are growing up, we have come to the realisation that a day out is a lot more fun than a night out. And as the newly turned teens step out to take a tipple tour across the city at around 8, we have already had a happy end to our Saturday. My dear friend had some pretty amazing deal vouchers for quite a few restaurants in Delhi. So we, Twisha, Pallavi and myself, thought this calls for us to indulge ourselves in a nice and lavish #drunch ! And for those of you who don’t know what a drunch is, it’s a drinking lunch. 😛
We went to Hauz Khas Village. The one and only uber cool and hipster driven place in the heart of South Delhi. Mushroomed with pubs, restaurants, bakeries, lounges, shot bars, it is definitely a go-to place for an indecisive lot, such as us. With ample number of choices, we zeroed down on Fork You. Conversations flowed, LIIT was poured, great food was brought to the table in an alive American ambience against a setting evening.
Here are a few pictures of what we all looked like while we stuffed our faces merrily.

According to Wikipedia, yellow is the colour of gold, butter and lemons and it just so happens that I like all these things a whole lot. I associate the colour yellow with happiness, celebration, beginning of spring time, fairy lights and all things lovely and bright. Today, the rain gods decided to bless us with a little respite from the crazy Delhi heat and the bonus point was that it was a Sunday, so we had the liberty to step out and enjoy the blessed day 🙂
Me and my sister decided to go to an open bazaar( Dastkar’s Rajasthani and Gujarati fair at Kisan Haat, near Qutab Minar Metro Station) where one can buy all things rustic, ethnic and quirky. Such as; plants, printed cotton bed sheets, beaded and silver Jewellery, hand woven footwear, ceramic pots etc.
