I try to improvise when I do not have the means to do what I would do normally. In this case, the loss of daylight and a long day wearing an outfit, I really wanted to document and write about. So I found a place with a load of “day light” bulbs and improvised. Anyways, coming to the color combination of the outfit. I really went out of my experimental zone to wear this with the mint pumps because as much as I love these pumps, this combination was totally new and my source of inspiration was an article from Instyle magazine from months ago. And guess what, it actually works. I absolutely love the combination of light mauve with light mint. They somehow seamlessly work well with each other. A surprise hit combo in my mind.

It must be something in the air, that I am categorically moving towards more pastel shades for fall instead of the traditional burgundy, burnt orange or cypress for that matter. I find it quite refreshing as a matter of fact. Sometimes a palette cleansing is very necessary.

Part 2 of the last post. Wearing this red velvet blazer a little differently for an evening out with friends or family. Red velvet and leopard are both in trend for fall and the upcoming festive season, so making the most of it is only logical!

I have an uncanny love for red velvet. Literally and figuratively. So last summer when I bought this red velvet blazer, I would often struggle to style it in a way that was not too over the top for work, but at the same time, felt put together. In two parts, I have dressed this blazer for work and for a evening/night out with friends/family. Pairing this bold red velvet blazer with an equally bold yellow dress draws more attention to the silhouette of the dress and the pumps than the colors itself. I chose to pair them with a leopard print pump to add some dimension and character. Individually the red velvet was first seen here and the yellow sheath was seen here.

Sometimes when I am too busy to write a post, usually I can be found hovering over here, feel free to follow my shenanigans.  Hope you all are having a great weekend. Share a thought, stay well and cheers!

This post and skirt came about simply because of Karma. Ann Taylor was having a 70% off flash sale a couple of weeks ago and I got suckered in, into buying this lime tweed skirt, for almost $15, now given that this skirt was priced at over a $100, that was a steal right? So anyways, I wait for almost week and half, before this skirt makes an appearance. I peel open the package, and try it on immediately, only to find the length too short ( for me atleast) for it to be work appropriate especially without stockings/tights, and the fit completely off, even though I bought my usual size. So I did a double take. Looked thoroughly through my online receipt to make sure, it wasn’t my mistake in ordering, as in if I had ordered a size too small, petite etc. Nope, nope and nope. But I had made one mistake. I did not realize this was final sale. I did look through all the other items I ordered, except for this. Again, destiny. So blissfully ignorant I take it to the store, only to be told, not gonna happen. Hence I wore this outfit out for dinner last week as a way to compensate for the misery I put myself through due to hastily ordering something. Rest assured, I have learned my lesson.

Have you ever messed up in online shopping and been stuck with it? What did you do? Share a thought and stay well.

Feeling like you are coming down with something, thanks to the random changing weather is no fun. It dampens the weekend spirits. Wore this to run and finish some errands over the weekend and that is about all the energy I have had. This outfit echos that simple color combos with a small dash of pattern/print works wonder for any outfit. Try it and share a thought.

Hope you all are having a great weekend. Outfit inspired from Alterations Needed.

p.s Happy Columbus day – shopping the sales!
