Party Season Favourites

party

 

Party season is coming and we finally have a serious excuse to wear glittery, sparkly and fancy clothes without the fear of being too much. Lucky us, this season is all about luxury textiles in amazing earthy or deep jewel tones, as well as sparkly details; as extreme as it gets. And who doesn’t love dressing-up? Especially with clothes that make us feel prettier than ever but don’t have the opportunity to wear whenever we want. Our time is around the corner!

A great place to consider for your party-ing attires, is Topshop. Depending on the occasion, your mood and your taste, there is something for all. From gorgeous formal maxi dresses like this, to mini dresses and trendy skirts.

Other than that, here are some beautiful options from the latest trends to check-out, if you’re going to parties and want to look your best.

The Statement Skirt

A statement skirt like this black sequin midi from Warehouse, is a chic and classy way to make an entrance. Wear it with a simple silk blouse and minimal accessories in order to let the skirt speak for itself.

The Velvet Dress

Velvet is hands down the fabric of the season. It is luxe, elegant and adds value in any form. A wine coloured mini dress like this from Mango, is the easiest choice for a party. With a dress like that, you will look fashionable without much effort from you. Pair it with sleek black pumps and voilà!

The Sequin Dress

If you are ready to shine and like more daring clothes, then this sequin dress from &Other Stories is definitely for you. You will be the centre of attention and for a good reason. Keep in mind that the rest of your accessories and makeup have to be super simple, so the outcome stays smart and stylish.

Diwali Decor and Outfit Inspiration

Hope you all had a lovely time this Diwali. Now that the festival is over, all we are left with are the messed-up Rangolis, melted tea light candles and leftover sweets. Snippets of your home remind you of the festive time you had with your loved ones. I love the excitement and the whole run up to Diwali. Sorting out my festive wardrobe and thinking about Diwali decor really gets my creative juices flowing. Living in London where I have limited access to resources does limit me from going full out, but I do try and work around my limitations.

Diwali is my favourite festival and I have fond memories of this festival as a child. As a mum I would like to give my kids the same memories. Being a working mum of two young kids, I find it challenging to balance everything – work, home, kids and my blog. But I guess I get a kick from doing what I am doing and I am passionate about it. I just about manage it all and carry on. Enough on the story of my life, let’s focus on some festive decor inspiration.

This is how I decorated my place for Diwali. Hope you enjoy my picture story here.

Diwali Table Decor

This arrangement is very easy to create. Simply use a neutral table runner and adorn it with silver and copper accessories. To give final touches, sprinkle some rose petals and your Diwali table is ready.

Rangoli Stencils

I used some Rangoli stencils (got them from India) to create patterns on the floor.

Diwali Sweets Table

Diwali sweets is the biggest attraction for everyone. Right from the little ones to the big kids. We all love mithai. This Diwali I tried to use cake stands and glass boxes to create a mithai centrepiece. I have to tell you it was difficult to keep my kids off from this centrepiece and take a picture before the sweets disappeared.

Diwali Rangoli Pattern


dscf4388dscf4367

I have a wooden floor at my place so usually my rangoli pattern would look very dull. This time I used only one colour and did the outline with white which gave some contrast to the pattern. I also used golden tea light holders for decoration.

My Diwali Outfit

So finally, what I wore this Diwali. I wore this Afghani embroidery skirt from Nabeel. I used a traditional maang tikka (bought from Amrapali) to give my outfit a traditional look and my Zara necklace to still keep it modern. I tried to fuse modern and traditional into one look. I wore this skirt slightly differently from how I wore it last time. See how I wore it earlier here.

Hope you enjoyed my Diwali story here. In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing a lot more about winter and party fashion so stay tuned.

Key Pieces for your Holiday

We all love holidays, but most hate packing. So how can we take the stress out of it? For me, the entire build-up to the holiday is exciting. It is that time of the year when I get a bit obsessive about clothes. I always leave my packing to the last minute but get my outfits organised in advance. Today on the blog I am sharing some key pieces that are versatile and a great addition to your wardrobe.

Maxi dress

A maxi dress can easily take you from day to evening. Just swap the shoes/accessories and you are ready to go. I chose this black jersey maxi dress from H&M. Generally white is considered a more appropriate colour for summer but try black with coloured glasses to create a trendy look.

Denim shorts

Once again, a very versatile and must have holiday suitcase item. You can easily take your denim shorts from a day to evening look by just changing the top. Swap for day top with a shimmery camisole and you are good to go. I love these Forever 21 shorts of mine. They are super comfy and give me a very relaxed fit.

Summer dress

Pack relaxed and loose fit dresses. Holiday dresses are easy to wear and can give you a break from work clothing. I chose this off-shoulder yellow dress from Mango. It was super comfy but creased a lot (which I didn’t mind much on holiday). The other one is this layered light khaki coloured dress. I loved wearing this dress-it was fun and very boho chic.

The key to holiday packing is being organised with your outfits. I am sure when you start packing, you will have ‘I have nothing to wear’ moments. Pick versatile pieces that you can match with other things. Pieces that can easily take you from day to night. Comfy flats are a must and if you want a change, then pack a pair of heeled sandals.

I would love to hear about your holiday packing experiences. Do share your top tips with me. Till then stay fabulous, stay stylish.

Best Maternity Buy

DSCF2872
It’s my first blog post of the year. I have totally indulged myself during the holiday period and did nothing but just slowed down my pace. With only six weeks to go for my due date, there is a lot to organise and plan. I had envisaged that I will sort things out over the Christmas break but things didn’t go as per plan. Sometimes no plan is a good plan. So all I did over the holiday period was eat, drink and be merry. Continue Reading

Follow me in Puglia – Part 1

During this Easter break we decided to visit Italy for our annual holiday. The reason why we chose Italy was because of this song. Both me and Arpit fell in love with the beautiful white cone-roofed houses. We did some research to figure out the exact location of the scenic places featured in the video. Finally we were able to trace the place down to Puglia in southern Italy.  Continue Reading
