Of monochrome

everyday style, fashion

I was most excited to meet the very wonderful Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni the other day, on her whistle stop tour of Mumbai for the launch of her latest book, The Forest of Enchantments, based on the story of Sita, or the Sitayana as she likes to call it.

As always, when I’m in a bit of a rush and too confused about what I should wear, I picked up a black and grey animal print chiffon shirt, and wore it over cropped black trousers, layering on a black waistcoat for modesty. On my feet I had a pair of black espadrilles, the most comfortable pair ever, from Clarks. Jewellery and accessories, I’m terrible about, just had my usual stuff on, the cameo pendant on a gold chain I wear everyday and my gold rings and bracelet. Someday, I will get organised enough to keep changing my jewellery with every outfit, I promise.

And yes, the first pic is the offspring’s valiant attempts at photography given that he and I are still learning this pose and shoot business. I sometimes feel he clicks my best photographs and perhaps it has something to do with the softness with which I look into the camera when he’s clicking? What do you think?
