Hi guys, how has the last week been for y’all. I had a continuous seven day week at work and it drove me nuts. I have been working on an idea bank so I can make sure that I do not mess up on the frequency on which I post for all of you. <3. The summer has been taxing on all of us. Living without AC has become the unthinkable. At such times, out comes all the breezy fabrics, the loose palazzo and the bright colors. This post is something that I have been wanting to post for a long time. A bright eye popping and colorful Indian attire. Nothing brings in comfort like the kurtas and us being a vibrant lot we have umpteen options. In this Indian summer capsule you will find, two looks portrayed with these ideas.

In look one you will see a melting hot pink kurta with jeans outfit styled with a ‘Kitsch Mandi’ twist. I always want my styling and outfit inspirations to be something that all of you can relate to. When you look at it there should not be a question of ‘looks nice on pictures but in reality can I pull this off?’. Hell yes you can. If you know to mix match the right fabric with the right patterns it is an easy affair.
Here we have a simple high neck long kurta paired with skinny jeans, along with a beautiful and one of my favorite items from my wardrobe stash, this jacket. It was a gift for my birthday from a ‘Kitsch Mandi’ fair.
Kitsch Mandi is an intimate and vibrant festival set in open green spaces where innovative product designers, creative entrepreneurs, emerging artists and musicians showcase and sell their work in a casual yet inspiring environment.One of my closest friends who has an eye for such things picked it up for me.
The jacket gives a real nice balance to an other wise daily look taking this modern ethnic wear to the next level. I went for a nice fishtail braid, yes its possible that my length of hair too :D. A beautiful pebble stoned earring that I picked up from Goa on one our raging trips. I love looking for pretty trinkets don’t you? The lip color is from the Chambor extreme lip wear collection – Diva 403.

The next look is curated for a day out shopping for the girls who love their Indian wear but want it to stand out amidst the urban ethnic crowd. My love for palazzo in a summer weather is a love story I cannot stop yapping about. It is so appealing on all body types and with the prints and colors that they come in these days, the options are more than a handful. Here is a first look.
Here is an uberly comfortable palazzo I picked from Fab India, A versatile black crop top you use with almost anything. I got that from Forever New. This one has a low neck gives you the scope to dress it up with a statement necklace or if you love a sexy bare neck look like me, you can over doze it with a chunky pair of earrings.
I bought these beautiful earrings from one of those Comm Street days in Bangalore. Some of the most pretty trinkets are bagged from there. You could also pair them with a nice Kalamkari saree and look at your best.
Along with this, a nice sling bag, a mustard and gold chained one that I got from Koovs.com or a tan tote for the tall ladies. A nude loafer from Ginger to round it up. Tone it down on the foot as the color of the clothes go bold.
Another capsule inspired on the Indian girl next door. Hope these looks were easy ones that you can implement in your daily styling routine. The next two days are extremely important and I may hold BIG NEWS for you all. Hope all goes well and if it does, cannot wait to share it with you guys. Till then please keep the love coming and may your coming week be as vibrant and colorful as this capsule.
