Summer brings unexpected plans, dinner dates, park chills and festival time. I have always been a big fan of tea dresses and maxi. However this season I am very much into going out tops and blouses. Summer in Amsterdam doesn’t necessarily mean all-time sunshine. Some days you just have to put on your jeans so you don’t freeze your ass. If this is the case than I would let the top be crazy floral or summery as hell! I mean 5 years ago If you asked me to take a light jacket for summer evening I would be like “Shut Up!” But over the years dutch weather has thought me the importace of summer light jacket!

Is comfort dressing a thing. For me I like comfort dressing and it’s definitely my thing. Getting dress in the morning for work sometime can be messy. After all it’s a Monday! So on days like this let the comfort dressing be your thing however keep in mind to upgrade or add few fun elements like earrings, shoes etc. I have always liked jeans and sweater combo especially with some unexpected accessory.
“May your clothes be comfy. Your coffee be strong. And your Monday be short!”

New babe alert! And this time it’s not about french girl style. We have officially moved on to this thing called “Gucci Girl”. We love all things gucci. We take inspiration from the shoes, skirts, prints and styling. I feel I am more of Gucci girl. I mean don’t get me wrong, I still love my black breton tees, black coats & loafers. But this I consider bare basic. Wherein you don’t need to think about how and it just happens. Do you know what I mean?
How often have you guys seen me with all black outfit. Almost never! I have always been attracted to colours and prints and patterns. After all, living in India did teach me to love colours and prints. So coming back to my today’s look… Here I am! Once again polka dotting with bit of a Gucci flair. Hope you guys enjoy these pictures as much I do. Let me know what you think?

Summer of 2016 is all about this little flower dress. They come in all colours and different prints. One dress that does it all. This summery, sexy and versatile piece can take you through anything… summer date nights, festival, brunches and park chills. What I like the most about this dress is that it wraps around your waist and is flattering for almost all body type.
I wear this dress so much and so often that I am thinking of getting a second one with different print and colour 😉

So far I have used a good camera to take pictures for my blog. I personally believe that having a good camera is a long term investment. Well, here comes the funny store. The last time I had scheduled time for blog pictures, I forgot to take my camera with me. Haha… The most important thing and only thing to bring accept for myself. Well, so we decided to put our iPhone photography skills to use and ended up creating these. Which btw I love so much!
So here you go:
1) Do not use flash for outdoor and day shooting.
2) Did you know that you can put your iPhone on HDR mood and shoot high quality pictures.
3) Set the focus on the main object. This is very important as you want you to be the centre of the image and everything else as a background. So tap on the phone screen yo find your focus and then shoot.
4) Use shadows in your pictures. I love shadows, I believe they add drama to the pictures.
5) Last but not least. If you don’t have a good camera then you have to play by one simple rule: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. So keep your backgrounds simple. Doesn’t matter if your images look empty. It draws more attention to you and what you wearing.
Have a fabulous week everyone. We are so excited about this weeks beach weather. Woohoo!

Sneakers are everywhere. Once upon a time wearing sneakers with dress was considered cool. I feel we have over played our obsession for Adidas Stan Smith and Nike Air force 1 to another level. I use to be super excited about styling a unusual combination with my Nike Air force 1. But some how I don’t feel the same. It’s more like getting over your crush and wanting to fall in love all over again. New love is the best love. You feel excited, nervous and look forward to new adventures. Well all this came true when I found my new love. Loafers. Yes, Pink Loafers! Thank you for reminding me what butterflies feel like. I am truly excited and look forward to our adventures together.
I am in love with this shoe. They are comfortable as sneakers, but I find them bit more badass and bold. They mean everything to me. Hope you guys find your true love.

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!

Good morning lovers,
How is everyone doing? Well, last few days have been crazy for me. We have finally moved into our new apartment. I am super excited about this new chapter!
Let’s get straight into the matter. Today I want to talk about all things street and style. Are you also obsessed with street style pictures. Well, I spend most of my free time going through street style pictures, especially the ones from fashion week. As much as I love the runway shows, I personally think street always does it better. Street style is all about knowing your style and customising each look to fit your personality. On the streets we do it bigger, louder brighter and some time all of it together. I really believe that these street style expertise are the most creative people in fashion. They are not afraid to try and experiment. Street always brings the freshness and newness to a existing trend.
If you have realised most of my pictures have this edgy street style flavour to it. The reason being, A: I wear the looks that I post. B: I am exactly the same person in pictures and walking around town getting shit done. Unless it’s an editorial where I most probably have the weirdest clothes or no clothes. haha.. Nay just kidding. So to smash a street style look you first need to have personal style. But finding your personal style is like finding that thing that almost doesn’t exist. To get their you have to dig deeper and experiment a lot, commit some fashion blenders. Oh well, now I am just exaggerating a bit. Honestly, personal style doesn’t knock at your door and say I am here, I believe you have to find it. For some it just comes easy like Alexa Chung. So take lessons from the masters of street style, experiment a few and stick to the ones you feel comfortable and you in it.
Hope this gets you experimenting! Until next week 🙂

What do you think people who wear pajamas in public have given on life or living it to the fullest? I am going to have to say, FULLEST! Last week I wore this outfit to work and I fell in love. 9 hours in this suit and I start to think, what took me so long to wear my pajamas to work? In fact, I am thinking of getting myself this new pajama blazer that landed in Topshop.
If you’re worried about looking sloppy, don’t be. Look to streets or Pinterest for inspiration. The point here is to keep it simple and let the hero piece do the talking. This trend is all about minimalist chic so keep your accessories simple and add nice pair of heels. If you are a busy bee like me and have to run up and down the floors for 8 hours then skip heels for cool pair of kicks.
Will you try it?

“Don’t ever forget to dress for yourself first and the rest will follow.”
Who do you dress for? Most of you may think how hard it is to answer “myself” But really who do you dress for? Some people dress to please others and make them happy. I some time hear girls say ” Oh my boyfriend wouldn’t like that” or “No he thinks I am weird when I dress like this .” Women should dress not for men, nor even for other women, but for themselves.
I loved playing dress up as a little girl and it never really stopped for me. I like to have fun with my outfits and be creative. In the last years I have developed a big crush on men T-shits and shirts. I tend to wear them a lot. They are just so got damn comfortable and I feel really cool when I am comfy. So when he was giving away some T-shirts and shirts, I pounced on the pile and claimed some before anyone could get their hands on. I grew up with 3 other siblings, 2 elder sisters and 1 younger brother. I use to find his clothes more interesting and occasionally steal haha… No borrow from him. I liked it then and I like it now. Looks like nothing has changed 🙂
We don’t have to be afraid to be ourselves. Don’t let men decide what’s sexy for you, decide for yourself. If you feel sexy and great in a pair of mom jeans. Wear it and don’t give a shit. If sneakers are your thing, wear them everywhere you go. If men could dress women then we all will be stuck in a body con dress forever. Haha.. and that’s my worst fear. Take it from the Icons like Diane Keaton, Chloë Sevigny, and Fran Lebowitz, these women had great sense of personal style and they did it without embracing body con fitted dresses.
And btw, these pictures are taken after work and I am wearing that men t-shirt I was talking about 🙂
Happy week girlies!
