Hi lovelies!

How is everyone doing? I hope your week starts on a good note. So, today’s outfit is one of my favorite holiday outfits. When it comes to a holiday dressing, a day-to-night outfit is a must. In fact, it’s a wardrobe essential any time of year!
A chic, not-too-fancy blouse that can be worn for day and then dressed up a bit for night saves time and allows you to be out and about from day time festivities to evening events without running home to change. This Vince Camuto blouse from Nordstrom is a perfect example of such a blouse.
This blouse is particularly perfect since it’s universally flattering and always classic. It’s stylish and elegant and can take you anywhere. I love it paired with a pencil skirt and classic pumps for day and then with a swing skirt along with either lace up heels or pumps, for the evening. I paired mine with this lovely versatile swing skirt from Who What Wear collection at Target.
My dangling pearl earrings from Zara deserve a mention since they make the perfect holiday earrings and are much more comfortable than you would think!
Enjoy and have a lovely week ahead!

Hi ladies,

I just love dressing up for the holidays (or really any occasion) and I don’t feel the need to spend a ton of money just to look fab. You can feel glam in a designer outfit like the one I’m wearing here from Ridhi Mehra for a fraction of the price, thanks to Indus Threads’s amazing selection of designer ethnic and fusion wear. Indus Threads is an online fashion rental platform featuring high end South Asian designers that provides access to runway looks and custom designs.

If you’re not familiar with the rental site, let me give you the simple rundown….first you peruse their collection of sarees, lehengas, salwar suits, anarkalis, dresses and jumpsuits. If you are unsure about what to wear for an event and size, utilize their free in-studio, phone or skype fitting and they will connect you with one of their fabulous stylists who will help you select. Each outfit also features customer reviews to help you decide.

Then select your time frame. They offer 4 days and 8 days rental service. If you need more days, just ask and they will figure something out. It’s best to choose a delivery date 1 or 2 days before the event so you have enough time to return if the outfit doesn’t work out. Your outfit will arrive perfectly laundered in a box and a pre-paid shipping label . And they even cover the cleaning upon return.

So, if you want to take away the stress of dress shopping, as well as the pain of spending a ton of money on a designer outfit you probably wouldn’t be able to wear again, I highly recommend the service!

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Friday, everyone!
Ruffles are absolutely one of my favorite embellishments. They are such a great way to add a feminine, frilly touch to your outfit. They are totally a hot trend right now and I’m loving this trend. They bring fun feminine accents to almost any piece of clothing, so no wonder they’re so popular!

While you don’t want to go overboard with the ruffles, there are great pieces out there that you’ll love. This ruffle sleeve blouse from Shop Akira, which I got a couple of days ago is one such piece. This blouse is perfect for a party or night-out or just a casual get together with friends.

I paired this blouse up with skinny ankle jeans and a pair for classy white pumps. It’s always good to accessorize your look with simple jewelry and neutral footwear and let your ruffles do the talking.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! How would you style this ruffle blouse? Please let me know in the comments section, I’m always looking for inspirations!
Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Monday, ladies!

This dress is one of my favorite Fall dresses that I have bought this season! I love the color, the cold shoulder and of course how cozy it is! Not to mention it’s under $50! I snagged this dress for my fall getaway to Lake Placid trip specifically because I knew it was going to be a bit chilly but warmer in the sun. Did I mention it is so soft? I could wear it for days.

I especially loved this sweater dress because of the high neck, long sleeves and the perfect fit. It really is the perfect Fall dress! I genuinely believe that it’s the most fashionable way to flaunt a little shoulder while still keeping things classy and conservative. I paired this cutie with these adorable patchwork heeled ankle booties from Asos. They are the definition of “comfort meets style.”

This outfit is perfect and is the best thing for those hectic mornings when you’ve got nothing to wear, or lazy Sundays. You just pull it over, put some boots on, a coat and you’re done!

Hi ladies!

If you’re looking for something a little different to try this season, might I suggest a touch of velvet? I am obsessed with velvet lately, one of the season’s biggest trends. I am in love with this velvet ruffle sleeve blouse from Zara.  It’s so versatile and the beauty of this top is it creates a zero-effort instant outfit when worn with a pair of jeans or a skirt. I’ve tried to spruce up my look by pairing this blouse up with these unique pieces from Romwe.

Black deep V-neck jumpsuit
Black and white striped split pants

First look:
This is my favorite look and it’s a great look for a party or an evening out. I paired this velvet blouse with this super chic deep V-neck black jumpsuit and accessorized this look with black caged heel beauties and a black cross body bag.

Second look:

This look features these trendy black and white striped split pants. This combo is ideal for a cocktail party or a night out; these pants are a one of a kind must have of the season! I accessorized this look with a velvet skinny scarf and pair of black ankle booties. You can also throw on a leather jacket or a suede jacket  for some extra edginess.

Happy Friday, ladies!

As Halloween is looming closer, I am sharing one of my favorite Halloween costumes on the blog. It is a quick, easy, glamorous, and dramatic Halloween outfit inspired by one of my favorite fictional characters – Morticia from The Addams Family. I really love the styling of Angelica Huston’s take on this character, and I’ve always wondered if I will be able to pull off this kind of outfit! Finally, I gave it a shot.

A while back, I found this amazing jersey dress on Asos and all I could think of was Morticia Addams, I must say, I’m in love with it. Now the dress isn’t as gothic as that of Morticia’s but it’s pretty nice because it makes it much better for day to day wear as well. I love these sleeves, the fish cut detail and mainly the fit of this dress. It looks perfectly like Morticia’s dress that accentuates her beautiful slim, hour glass figure.
The rest of the outfit is simple. All you have to work on is the make up for that dramatic look.

So, I started this look off with playing around with the makeup, I thought it would be the tricky part as my features are incredibly different to Huston’s. I used a touch of grey to my contouring, paying attention to the nose and cheeks as I want to make them look really slimmed, almost boney. For the eyes I used up shades ranging from silver to black, a base of grey to blend it into a smoky effect. I’ve used a silver toned highlight for the corners of my cheek bones. I finished it off with a deep red lip and some hair extensions! So here’s as close as I could get to the gorgeous Morticia Addams.
I hope you liked it! Thank you for stopping by!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. Between the hot cider, warm sugar coated donuts, and hayrides, heading to the Apple orchard and Pumpkin patch are two of my fall favorites! I’m on a mission to cross off as many items on my fall bucket list. So, first two things I was able to check off? Apple picking and pumpkin picking. Two of my favorite things about autumn! We headed to Parlee Farms over the last weekend and had a great time there. We spent about an hour walking around and picking pumpkins. We checked out the farm shop filled with caramel apples and apple cider doughnuts and a lot more. Such a great day. So fun and so worth it if you ask me. It’s definitely something you need to experience. Step away from work this weekend and head over to the nearest pumpkin patch. It’s a perfect fall activity, it’s exactly what you need to relieve some stress.
I wanted to be comfy since I assumed this adventure required quite a bit of walking, which it did. I was glad to have worn my favorite pair of patchwork boots and oh so comfy burgundy sweater (this fall I’ve been on a really big burgundy kick!) and a blanket scarf. 

Have a great rest of the week!

Happy Wednesday, ladies!

These ruffled tiers..Am I right? I know! I am so smitten with this sweater. This trendy piece from Akira is a super-soft sweater that features crew neckline, long, tiered, bell-shaped sleeves, and a cropped hem. You can totally step your sweater game up with this flutter sleeved masterpiece this fall. It can be worn over a crisp white shirt for a preppy look like I did or you can just pair it with a blanket scarf. It’s absolutely a trendy piece and your wardrobe must have this season.

I have paired my sweater with these gorgeous pair of sparkle ruffle pointed toe booties from Akira! You can also add a timeless pair of pumps for an elegant look that can easily take you from day to night.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day! <3

Happy Monday ladies!

I went for a short hike a few days ago to Gates Pond- a nearby hiking trail to relax and unwind. With myriad shades of soothing green, the sound of birds, the breeze rustling through the trees and the sound of trickling streams, it was so relaxing! Spending time in a natural environment is all you need sometimes to refocus your mind.

I absolutely love to spend time in nature especially in Fall. Those colorful leaf backdrops, crisp temperatures and plenty of sunshine. But what I hate is wearing bulky and heavy jackets. I love lightweight jackets that pack easily and travel well to keep you warm and dry on all types of autumn days.

This light weight hybrid jacket that I’m wearing is one of my favorites from High Sierra. High Sierra is a brand that designs feature-rich, versatile adventure lifestyle gear for adventurers everywhere. They create durable and affordable apparel, back packs, totes, travel luggage with innovative storage and carry options. You must have seen High sierra back packs and apparel in Macy’s, Kohl’s and on Amazon.

This jacket is light weight, warm, and comfortable and is great-looking! It’s insulated and water resistant throughout the body to keep you warm. The sweater fleece is soft and comfy. This jacket comes in various colors. This is surely my go-to jacket this fall months!

Apart from apparel, what I liked the most are the backpacks and travel luggage they offer. This lovely backpack is one of my favorites from their amazing collection of backpacks. It has a multi-compartment design, zippered accessory pockets and a comfortable padded back panel. It was a perfect one for me to carry all the necessary stuff I needed for this short hike. If you’re looking for some high quality luggage with some innovative and modern designs, you should totally check High Sierra out. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fabulous weekend ladies! <3
