I am sure you guys have heard, shopped and read tons about the Nordstrom sale that is going on. I was interested in none and bought absolutely nothing. Honestly I felt a little underwhelmed with the choices except for this Tory Burch flats and this Sam Edelman ankle cuff pumps. These were the only two I really liked. Some of the boots like this cut out tan bootie and this animal printed suede bootie caught my attention, but I did not feel compelled enough or the need to buy any of these. They simply sat in the cart and then with time was of course sold out.

Coming to the outfit I wore to work today. The skirt is this same style as this one and is exactly this style in a different color. The top is my trusted Ashton blouse from The Limited. The same print is sold out, but this beautiful red sleeveless version has me hooked. I have usually worn my tops tucked into the skirt, so today I wanted to try something different by keeping it untucked but adding the belt to add definition to the outfit. I especially love the fact that the Ashton blouse has a nice “U” shaped cut at the seam. I have been trying to accessories a bit more than I normally do. So this statement necklace found its way into this outfit. This seems sold out online, and was the only piece at the store, so I am assuming it was a hot item? I almost bought this metal net floral necklace, but when I wore it to try on, it looked too big on me.

Hope your week is going good. Share your thoughts on how you wear skirts untucked?

White and Pleat - part 2

Continuing from the previous post, this would be the ” normal” way of otherwise wearing the white midi skirt I featured in this past post. The bright yellow top adds the color in this otherwise monochromatic outfit. The yellow is really a neon yellow, so I havent worn it to work ever, but have worn it out with friends and other events. It stands out in any outfit, so I choose to keep everything else minimal, and choose only a statement earring or necklace. For the lace lovers, this tunic in neon yellow is a fantastic option, that can be worn as is or tucked in with a skirt or pants. But if you are the more hipster style, try this flutter crop top also in neon yellow.

White and Pleat- Part 1

White and pleat

 Midi skirts and dresses are on the rise. Its like they are redeeming themselves just like thick pleats are. This white skirt is a combination of both! Its midi and pleated and white. A combination I haven’t owned since school days, because that was what our school uniform used to be, every wednesdays. If you are unaware, all schools in India, till completion of high schools have mandatory school uniform, thus effectively getting rid of any so called class difference among the kids. One thing, I truly believe the US schools should and can adopt very easily.  Anyways.

This skirt was a lucky find from Ruelala, but this TopShop diamond Jacquard skirt and this absolutely gorgeous porcelain printed skirt are close cousins. If you are not the wide pleat kind of person, opt for this pleated white skirt from ASOS instead. The top is from AnnTaylor. It is currently sold out but this black floral printed top with sheer accent and this mint floral printed top stole my heart. If you are not into prints much, this Forever21 lace peplum will surely woo you.

I am doing this skirt in two parts.Showing you here with a peplum top, hold on for the next post for a slightly different but still colorful post!

Have a great weekend.

A colorful outfit for some midweek charm! Pink and yellow do go together fabulously! SJP and Atlantic Pacific have done it fabulously before. I sure had to add my little twist to it, by adding the black and gold belt to separate the two pieces. I am absolutely looking to snag this Rebecca Minkoff  skirt or this French connection flare skirts soon. I usually stock up on silk shells for summer. This Joie silk crepe top in baby pink is a rage and being a print lover, I am digging this Chevron printed  butterfly sleeve silk top. Two complementary colors do work together well.

Linking up with Alison, Lauren, Shana and Lindsey.

Weekend has come and gone. So has the FIFA world cup 2014. Germany has been crowned the new world champions and the world goes back to being the same. Tomorrow is Monday again and the week shall continue. Oh well. Coming now to my outfit. Fit and flare dress works absolutely fabulously with a narrow waist or wider hip. This Ellen Tracy dress is pretty similar to the one I am wearing. My dress is from Francesca’s collection. Usually I find it very hard to choose dresses from Francesca’s because most of them don’t fit me well. But occasionally there are miracles. Keeping in line with the trend, I am absolutely loving this Blue and White stripped bow dress and this Ikat printed dress.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Have a great week ahead.
