When summer feelings strike, you bring out all the strappiest and lightest of clothes you can get your hands on. I mean, all you care for is feeling light but staying in style. It’s all about the ease and comfort when it comes to styling now. There is of course the “no pain, no gain” classic theory, which is still prevalent, but for the rest of us there is laid back athleisure and also the infinite world of comfortable street style innovations. I believe I have already made it clear that I do belong to the later kind.
So, when I had to go grab a drink with a friend on a summer day with plans for later in the night, I dressed up my cami and mini skirt with a pair of sneakers. The minimal color palette was of course intentional. I think I am beginning to have a thing for blacks, whites and pastels! To switch it up for night I picked a blocked heel ghillie sandal. This look was super breezy and kept me dancing with no signs of sweat till the wee hours. I must tell you, cami tops are such amazing investments for Indian summer.
Lately I have been mentioning how things are going a little haywire for me personally. So I have decided to share snippets of that in my blog posts. Hoping to may be cheer someone somewhere or even helps someone pick up the pieces. I met someone sort of like a very positive influence recently who actually told me that my styling needs to have more of me in it. So I actually started following inspirations less and going with what my gut said more. As a result, I put my self-expression out there, which was little scary to start off with.
Am still discovering myself and trying to care less about what people think of me, say about me or how they look at me. But this experiment has sort of made me have more fun and follow what I think I should be doing. I let go of inhibitions that held me back and there is a whole lot more cleaning to do. But this first step feels amazing and I am telling nothing beats having fun with yourself, regardless of what opinions people hold about you.
Stay tuned for more such tiny tales.
