This is a look in one of my most favorite colors- Blue. A simple Tokyo talkies dress and jacket with blue medium sized pearls and black kitten heels, perfect for my fibromyalgia joints that rule out pumps now completely.
I like flexi-dressing a lot, where I can just change the look from formal to casual by just removing the jacket and pearls.

This short chiffon dress was worn for a casual outing with my girls, I love the browns to break the monotony of my mostly black wardrobe. The similar shade Mary Janes make the outfit and me both appear youthful and playful.

I love lot of casual dressing, a pink front panel shirt by bronz paired with a regular blue jeans and some golden ballerinas, perfect for a casual outing. When comfort and color combine the effect usually is calm and impressive and I like that.
BLACK
As they say one can never go wrong with black, it is my favorite color and here I team a long ankle length kurta with a plain black gypsy skirt inside,warm and cosy for Delhi winters with a black turtle neck.

Quick trip packing

everyday style, fashion, Flat lay

A quick trip for me is generally hell to pack for, because of the multiple events and situations one finds oneself in, and the need to carry cabin baggage rather than half the contents of one’s wardrobe. So here’s what I do. For a four to five day trip, three pairs of trousers, indigo, brown, black. One formal pair (Black in this case). Three basic t shirts. One black camisole or lacy vest. One bright pop of colour, the red in this case. One a striped one. And the third a basic plain black. Add a basic black sweater with double sided buttons (simple on one side and shiny Swarovskis when reversed) so you can dress up or down as required. One casual T Strap sandals. One pair of formal black pumps or strappy satin sandals for an unexpected invite out to dinner. That’s it. Keeping the colours neutral lets everything you pack go with every other item in your baggage, with no stress, and you can change combinations to create a completely different look each time. And of course, a couple of really funky neckpieces that can completely elevate a look without adding to the baggage.

What are your quick packing hacks?

Bundling up….

Winter in Mumbai might be non existent, but some days you just feel like play pretend it is chilly enough to bring out your woollies. For me, the go to look is always a chunky knit oversized pullover in cream worn over deep indigo skinny fits. Pair this with a taupe Da Milano structured bag, a leopard print scarf, huge sunglasses and tan suede boots, and I’m good to go.
