Because summer is here…

It’s a scorcher of a summer already, with the mercury hitting 40 degrees Celsius in Mumbai yesterday. The only thing that makes sense now is cotton and open sandals, and here’s what I live in these days. Linen cropped trousers and flowing soft cotton top with a delicious floral print, silver rasta sandals and convenient small bag to carry just what I need. And of course, never without my sunglasses.

Oh, for a dress with pockets…

I’m not much of a Biba fan, and haven’t really bought or worn anything from the brand, but this dress with its lovely print, and the fact that it had pockets changed my mind.

I love long dresses, as I’ve said before, and I have a particular soft spot for florals. I particularly fell in love with the flare and the colour combination of this one. I had already packed another outfit for the Women Writers Fest Bangalore, in 2018, but a flight delay meant extra time at the airport and this is what happens. Picked this up on an impulse and loved how comfortable it was. Yes, it is a size larger. In other circumstances, I would have preferred a higher heel with this, but had packed these trusted beige Tstrap Bata wedges so these are what I wore.

Long, flowing and so, so, comfortable

A million thanks to the kind soul who clicked it at the Women Writers’s Festival, Delhi in March 2018 and sent it across to me.

A lovely black flowing maxi dress from StalkBuyLove, with a cinched waist, a floral print and comfortable puffed sleeves elasticised at the elbow. (Have I mentioned that online shopping sites are my weakness, though I still can’t seem to get the fitting quite right, and end up ordering a size bigger most times).

Wore this with a silver braided choker and my all time favourite platforms. Here I am with two fab authors, Aditi Mathur Kumar and Shuchi Singh Kalra.

And because I am a firm believer in repeat wear, I brought it out again for the Bangalore Lit Fest in November 2018, where I ditched the choker (to be honest, I forgot to pack any accessories), and paired it with tan clogs, and a structured Hidesign bag in the same shade as the florals. This was a panel on the art of the crime thriller with Bhaskar Chattopadhyay, Sophie Hannah, Philip McLaren and moderated by Nilanjan Chaudhury. Nice?
