Of shirt dresses

everyday style, fashion

At L’Affaire Godrej The Trees yesterday, in a Global Desi shirt dress. Yes, it is a size bigger, I prefer to wear something a little looser than my size so I can grow into it. Seriously though, it just feels more comfortable in the humidity of Mumbai to allow for enough air circulation. Paired this with an oxidised silver knot neckpiece, a structured taupe Da Milano bag and my good old brown suede Catwalk clogs that don’t really go with this, but are sky high and darned comfortable, despite the high heel. No pockets with this one. Damn.

Red checks and denim

everyday style, fashion

I’ve always been a great fan of the red check and denim look. I think I’ve always owned a shirt with red checks, forever and ever. Oh well, ever since I was in college I think. The style is resolutely the same, a red checked shirt with tiny buttons down the front, fitted a bit. I wear these with either tan corduroy jeans or plain medium wash denims. Sometimes, I throw on a denim jacket. If the jeans are ankle cropped skinnies like these from Only, I will wear my high clogs (from Catwalk), or risk looking like something on a toothpick. This is a safe look that always works for a casual day out, without too much thought going into it.

And, as always, big sunnies, and a bigger smile, if I don’t hate everyone on and their grandparents on that particular day.
