The outfit is super basic because I can’t stand to wear anything else during the heat. I mean let’s be honest guys, we try to plan out outfits a day ahead of time but we end up picking something in a span of 5 minutes, and we usually pick something we’re comfortable in. This is that kind of outfit. The material of the top is really thin, but it has a small thin fabric around the chest area inside, just so that you can wear any color bra without it being visible from the outside. I’ve paired it with a pair of Juthis I got from Banagalore, and a pair of Jumkas from Zahana Accessories. I’ve kept my makeup minimal as well, with just a little bit of concealer and my FAVORITE red lipstick the Maybelline Lip Gradation in Red 2.

This red leaf printed kurti is from Kalpa Druma. I was introduced to this store by my friend Varsha, and it’s a haven for people who love handicrafts and love to explore new “cultural” outlets . What I liked most about the boutique was their clothes, they had beautiful kurtis. kurtas, western wear, etc – the material of it all seemed so pure. Yes most of their kurtis can be a bit pricey, it can go up to 1000 rupees, but they have some for even 500 rupees, like the one I’m wearing. Honestly if you want to experience different products and have the time, you could end up spending hours here. They also have a diverse set of products from quilts, table cloths, curtain material, paintings ( semi-precious stone paintings), antique items, brass items, home decor, and lots of dress material along with finished clothing.

Kalpa Druma is located just opposite the Chola Sheraton hotel in Gopalapuram.

Top –    Cherokee at Megamart

Necklace – Westside 

Skirt – Miss. Bennett, Jabong

Hat – Street Shopping at Yercaud 

This outfit is for those days when you can’t bear to wear jeans and you want to a lazy yet stylish look. When I go shopping I don’t buy a bundle of clothes at once, I shop now an then which I think most people I know do. I always buy basics as they are affordable, and obviously can be worn with anything. Hence the green Cherokee basic top, I got it on sale at Megamart for only 300/- which I thought was a bargain because I like the feel of the top. I usually pair it with a normal pair of blue jeans and a scarf/statement necklace or even leggings and a cardigan when I feel ultra lazy. I think Megamart is really good when it comes to basics, they even have really funky printed pants which I unfortunately couldn’t get!

The skirt from Jabong was an impulsive buy because I didnt really know how I would pair it, but when I saw the deal on Jabong I just had to have it. I don’t really wait for those ‘huge’ sales on clothing sites like Jabong or Myntra, I go on once a week to just see what they have in store and if Im lucky I’ll find something within my budget. This black pleated maxi skirt was only 800/-, an insanely good buy! I was a bit skeptical about the length of the skirt, but it worked out well. The easiest way is to just use a measuring tape and refer to the size chart. When in doubt, just order a larger size because you can always alter it later.

Westside has some really good accessories, especially during the big sale months like Diwali and Pongal. This necklace was only 50/-. When I saw it I was looking around thinking it was a joke or just misprinted. I know it’s not a very fancy necklace, but I liked the layered look it has plus the texture of the necklace. For that price you cant really ask for more. Westside also has some pretty amazing bags and shoes during sales, so it’s usually my first stop when I go to the mall!
