It’s Monday and I am back with another post. I feel like I am finally going back to my routine. Well not really. I am writing this post from Berlin and I will be here for a week!

So coming back to this outfit. I love the easiness of this outfit. First of all you can never go wrong with a red skirt. However I personally like to wear mine during the day and easy. You can wear this combination to work but just buttoned up. Borrow a nice white or preferable white stripe shirt from his closet and pair it with your favourite skirt, add on a pair of sneakers for just cool girl easy and you ready to go!

Pink dress Topshop, Shoes Topshop

We found the most controversial dress ever and we love it! It’s a slightly long coat but short enough for a perfect dress.  What is not to love about this dress. Well for some, sexy doesn’t have to be body hugging. I want to be in a dress that makes me feel sensual without actually sucking the life without of me.

This year has been crazy. Summer decided to come uninvited for Autumn. And we seriously think Autumn is mad. But hey, who cares. We are loving it. So if you going on date night with your sweetheart we want to make sure you feel cool like cucumber. This is dress is effortless and hassle free. So put on your dress and pick your best heels.

This week again going to be nice and warm, hope everyone gets the chance to enjoy the last days of summer!

So here I am, perfect outfit with a random post. Well, hope you guys don’t mind me being a bit off  beat today. It’s my birthday and I do what I want to. Haha.. So I am feeling a bit valunerable today and hope thats okay with you.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.

Vulnerability is the scary thing. It’s to be able to share yourself and make yourself vulnerable and to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength. It was a year ago that I went on this journey of blogging. Honestly, it took about 6 months before I showed my blog to public. I talked about it a lot to people but it took a lot of courage to be able to finally say “Here I am”. My intention when I started this blog was to be real and build connect with you all.

It’s a year and I am not leaving. So let me know if you think their is anything I can add or do more to keep you going on this journey with me.

Is it Monday again?

First of all, I think our struggle is real when we wake up and realise it’s Monday already. Everything seems so slow but somehow the time is running faster then you realise. Some Mondays can even start with “I have nothing to wear”!

Well, I had this feeling few times last week after moving into our new home. When you have 15mins to get ready and leave, you got to be quick, smart and creative. It’s then that i realised that I stuck to my favourite denim and white shirt that I can’t live without and of course I let my personal style do the creative bit. So guys, once again believe in the power of personal style and white shirt. God knows how many times I have said this “I have a white shirt for all occasion”. Well this really helped! So any time you feel lost in your closet and don’t have anything to wear. Close your eyes and think about that one thing you would live and die in. Easier, just stick to my denim and white shirt combo, I promise it will never disappoint you.

Have a nice week you’ll!

Sundress by Topshop, Denim Jacket Vintage, Shoes Nike, Necklace my own, Sunglasses Celine

You think I fell in love with this sundress just because it says Sun. Haha… I guess I am excited because it finally feels like summer here in Amsterdam. Sundresses for summer is a always a good idea! This year I found my all white summer dream in Topshop. The minute I laid my eye on it, I fell in love. I love everything about this dress it’s summery, white, mid length  and comes with a bow. So you know what I will be wearing the most this summer.

A great dress is nothing without a good styling. If the outfit is styled well then I believe it’s unbeatable. In this world of fast fashion and social media, you need to have a good sense of style. You need to make it your own and own it! I am so done seeing patch on everything; jackets,jeans  & denim. And it all looks the same. The denim jacket in this pictures is vintage and worked on by a friend. The one thing I love the most about this are the small Indian details.

So go ahead and create something that says you!

Some things never go out of style… like leopard print & double denim.

I will always pull out my double denim when I am short of time & not sure what to wear. Double denim have always been fashions favourite baby. They would always surface around fashion week, magazine covers and street style.

Feeling like Kate Moss & Donna Pinciotti from 70s show,  I am wearing my double denim with leopard coat.

Almost a month ago I was in this paradise. Land of beautiful beaches, lush forest, portuguese influenced culture and biggest hippie land in India. This is what I call it home! Growing up here I never really appreciated the beauty of this place. Instead I tired everything to move away from here quickly. Who would have thought after 10 years I would do anything to run back to this. 10 years and nothing has changed around here.

It’s no secret that Goa is one among the top hippie destinations in India. Whether you want to lose yourself in trance or psychedelic music, lay by the ocean or get lost in it’s rain forest, Goa offers everything.  There are various beaches that aren’t disturbed and you can always rent a beach shack and simply doze off under the trees. So, If you planning to escape the european winter than head to this little sunny island. October until the February is the peek tourist time in Goa. During this time the temperatures drop to about 25-30 degrees during day and 20 degrees at night.

Which one would you pick? North VS South? Well, it really depends what you prefer. North Goa is more lively, full moon parties, party until dawn, international cuisine, beach clubs and bar. South on the other hand is more relaxed with calm rustic and best beaches. Beautiful beaches, rice paddies and palms as far as the eyes can see by the coast. But, venture a little further and you’ll find yourself in thick forests. Indulge yourself and want to be close to nature than south Goa is a total treat.

Going through this pictures did brighten up my grey dutch morning. Hope this brings some sunshine into your’s as well.

Hi lovelies, how have you all been? It’s been almost 2 weeks since my last post. Well, as you all know, I am on a vacation. Quick stop in Dubai and straight home for Diwali! This Diwali was a special one for me.  My favourite festival of the year plus I was home with my family.

Well, Dubai was great expect for one thing, phone crisis all over again. One morning I woke up to a dead phone. Haha… in a weeks time I had a new phone from Apple. Well, I tried my best to bring alive my dead phone. But it didn’t workout. Since, I managed to get 2 phones in a month – I decided to share some tips and tricks to tackle iPhone crisis.

If you managed to get your phone drunk or share some of your coffee than be ready to kiss your phone good bye. Apple, will not replace your phone even under icare unless you have a separate insurance that takes care of water damage. Well, the good news is Apple will offer to replace your iPhone(6) on payment of €310.

Second scenario. What if you wake up to a dead phone? Or what can you do when your iphone acts suspicious and weird. Well, according to the internet, apple phones can act a bit strange.  iPhone6 and 6s are prone to blur screen, and software crashes and the most common frozen screen.

Follow these steps to resolve the problem:

  1. Restart your phone ( press home & start button for 10seconds).
  2. You may have to repeat step 1 for few times before it really works.
  3. If the restart fails than try to restore the phone. This means you would loose some information from your phone. Plug your phone to your computer while pressing the home button. Realize the home button, once you see connecting to iTunes on your phone screen. Go ahead and restore your phone. You may have to try this step few times before it really works.
  4. If step 3 fails, most probably it’s the end of your phone. Visit your nearest Apple store or service provider.

Note: Visit only Apple store if visiting abroad. Authorised service providers will not able to help since you need the proof of purchase.

Happy setting the new phone.

Did you know that mini skirts are perfect for winter. Yes, you heard me. Mini skirts are perfect for winter. Blake lively and Alexa Chung are our muse for this look. They definitely know how to rocks this number like no one else.

I love wearing my Topshop denim skirt with cosy knitwear. You could wear this outfit in so many different ways. Adding a tight is the good way to accessorise during winter. There are some many colourful and patterned options to choose from. If you fancy a old school gossip girl, Serena kinda look than go for a  plaid skirt, over the knee socks and lace up booties.

Personally I am not a big fan of tights. But, I do wear them occasionally and try to keep it fun and add some character. A perfect way to avoid wearing your boring black tights is to invest into over the knee boots. This year I am all about the OTK boots. They can be worn in so many different ways. I like to pair them with cute skirts, dresses and sometimes with jeans. I will avoid pairing them with ultra sexy body corn dresses, leather skirts and basically anything too sexy.

Here are some of my favourites to create the WINTER MINI look:

It’s almost Autumn and what better way to welcome the sweater weather than with a crop knit. This Autumn learn how to rock a crop top to your university, office & casual date nights.

Back to University look: Are you looking to take this trend to the university? Than don’t forget to keep it young & fresh. Go for cool abbreviated sweater crops for cute young look. Emoji are everyones favourite! So, it’s not that hard to find a crop sweater with these cool figures to achieve a quirky look.

Office look: Wearing crop tops to work could be bit tricky. However, you can still wear this trend to work and still look sophisticated and professional. Give your classic denim a update and pair them with a knit sweater. Choose high waisted jeans to avoid showing a lot. A nice pair of gilet over is a good way to cover against the office air conditioning.

Casual date night: Don’t we all want to look perfect for our date nights? Yes, I do! Since we are talking about weather proof dress code. We want to cover our legs and let TOP be the hero. Pair your denim with a sheer-paneled shirt and a bralette underneath.

Don’t let winter bring you down. Get up. Dress up. Make up. And look flawless!

Love
