Of flair and glares!

With the temperature rising everyday, I am sure a lot of you would have started going through your calenders meticulously to plan your weekend getaways. I sure have! As Bangalore doesn't have a beach the most popular short trips would be to coastal regions like Goa, Mangalore, Pondicherry, etc to bask in the sunshine.

Keeping that in mind I have combined three different looks which you could give a try on your next vacation. To me comfort is the key and in my opinion each of these looks are a perfect balance of comfort and elegance.

LOOK 1 :

I was never a fan of printed trousers until I got this beauty from Forever 21. The loose fit is quite flattering and it adds on to the comfort quotient. I paired it with a flowly solid colored crop top. I wanted the accesories to stand out yet be subtle. So i wore this bright neckpiece which I picked from a local store while I was travelling in Manali. I am wearing a simple silver watch and my favourite black ballerinas that I got from Max. I got my bag from a local store in Bangalore. (Yes, I absolutely love street shopping!) I love the size of the bag and I think its perfect to carry your essentials especially when you go sight seeing. When on a vacation no look is complete without sunglasses. I got these gorgeous purple tinted shades from Ayesha.

LOOK 2 : 

When I have a long day ahead pallazos are always my go-to outfit. They are simple and extremely easy to style. You can never go wrong with a pair of monochrome pallazos. Normally I would have styled my black pallazos with a vibrant printed tank top but for this look I decided to go ahead and try an immensely underrated colour- grey. And to my surprise it worked out really well. I paired my outfit with a beautiful pendant and a statement grey ring. I got my funky hot pink flipflops from Westside. I wore my classic pair of UCB aviators to add a touch of panache to the look.

LOOK 3 :

This look is by far my favourite one as I went out of my comfort zone and tried styling a high-low wrap skirt. Wrap arounds scare the hell out of me as they just don't stay the way I want them to throughout the day. But after I tried these on I think my perception about wrap around clothing has completely changed. I love the print of the skirt and the high-low aspect just takes the look to a whole another level of cute. I am wearing my basic black tank top which I got from Forever 21. I chose the solid black top as I wanted the emphasis to solely be on the print of the skirt. The white shirt is completely optional and you could try it on if you are a huge white shirt fan just like me! I have kept the accesories minimalistic keeping the holiday aspect in mind. I am wearing my favourite peacock pendant chain which you guys might have already seen in my Bohemian Vibes post. If not, check it out here. The black ballerinas are the same as the one I sported in the previous look above.


















All the looks featured in this post were created keeping two things in mind- comfort and style. I hope I could successfully incorporate both of those really important aspects in all the looks. If you try any of them do let us know! We would love to hear from you.

In case you guys are planning on a long holiday anytime soon do consider travelling to the stunning Andaman & Nicobar islands. You can read our Andaman story right here. :)

Lots of love,
