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.

Just we all desired maxi skirts or skater skirts to fill our wardrobe, they’ve got some competition from midi skirts. This trend was big back in the 70’s and came back with force around 2012. The attraction around these skirts its their ability to make one look thin yet structured. While they give attention to your waist area, they also compliment your legs! The perfect midi skirt is one that reaches your knee or just above it, still allowing you to show of your legs 😉

Midi skirts can be worn with just about anything from flouncy blouses, knitted sweaters, crop tops, and even t-shirts. I chose to pair mine with my favorite lace top. I always prefer the basics with a unique touch! I chose ankle-strap flats to add a bit of an preppy look to the outfit. Pairing ankle flat sandals can be a bit difficult because they can make you look much shorter than you are, and sometimes even a bit stalky. However, I chose them because the length of my skirt wasn’t too long and felt that appearance wise it looked good.
