Understated.

I have days when my closet does not want to SPEAK to me. Instead of welcoming me with smiles and whispering promises of trendy, comfortable and stylish outfits, it shuns me – leaving me with groans and absolutely nothing to wear.
During these rather disheartening days I trot over to m brothers room and rummage through his very-messy closet. (This has proved to be a rather productive habit over the years.) There’s an unexplainable joy and satisfaction in hiding, stealing and then finally incorporating his masculine fragments in my looks.  
Most importantly, I’m almost never unhappy with the aftermath.

That’s exactly what I did today - Threw on my favorite pair of skinny jeans, rolled up the sleeves of my brothers oversized shirt and I was ready to go. Always remember – Simplicity never hurt anyone.











Like I mentioned on my Facebook page, I have been obsessing over round-frame sunglasses for a while now. Thats right - Micky mouse ears for your eyes! If you guys know any place in Bombay that has them, please do let me know in the comments - I cant wait to get my hands on them.

  17. Very very chic. Something I do a lot but I have to be careful because I'm top heavy :( Men's shirts sometimes make me look bigger :(

    Love how the entire outfit is neutral and yet making a statement!

  19. I completely agree. Sometimes, a simple outfit can speak volumes without being too loud itself.

  21. I adore the color of this bag! I feel like I've been gravitating towards it so much lately. It compliments your shirt nicely. I bet it goes with so much!

  24. I know just what you mean; some days, even though my closet is full of clothes, I feel like I have nothing to wear. You did really well in your brother's closet, though- this look has such a classic, casual vibe to it and I just adore the combination of turquoise and coral. The shot of you in the bed is absolutely perfect! Love from your newest follower :)
