Shoe love is true love - ALDO

Hello there :D 

"You can't buy happiness but you can buy shoes and that's kind of same thing"
I am sure you must have heard this quote a zillion times and definitely agreed on this.

Recently I visited the Aldo store and picked my 5 must have shoes for Summers from their collection. They have some really nice pairs and it was too difficult to select only five. When it comes to my shoes, my first priority obviously is the comfort & Aldo footwear makes the feet feel at home. 

So let's get started with my five favourites.
While browsing through their collection, the first thing I scouted for were a pair of white sneakers. They're one of the biggest trend and were undoubtedly on my must-have list. You can tag them with jeans, shorts and skirts too. I styled them with my denim dungarees! 

My 2nd pair were the dark blue heels. You need to have a high heel pair that goes with everything and these were just the right deal.

My 3rd pair were the yellow wedge heels. Summers is all about playing with colours and you need to have a pop colour in your shoe wardrobe which work best with the basics.

My 4th pair were these red colour flats. I just loved the colour and I agree this wouldn't go with everything but who'd say no to some super cute flats? I styled these flats with my off shoulder watermelon crop top and shorts and dig the shoot.

My 5th pair were flats again but a neutral colour this time. I prefer wearing flats or wedges in summers because they are more comfortable and are easy to get through the day. I loved the pattern of these and styled my basic denim shorts and a white crop with it!

Hope you enjoyed the post & you can also read the article on Fashtagz too.

See you soon,

I always want more - Swatch


I attended the launch of the SWATCH SS16 collection- "I always want more" and the name did complete justice to the collection. This collection offers a vast range with quirkiness, more colour, more design, more pattern and all the watches are just so much fun and worth a flaunt.

To name a few they are-

Floralia- These watches are all about floral prints. I loved the colour palette used for these watches.

PowerTrackingThese watches were a bit heavier in weight compared to others and are very unique.

Metallix- This is my personal favourite and it is perfect to tag at any occasion especially for night outs.

Es War Einmal- This is my second favourite as these watches are super cool and very light and casual. You can wear these watches with any outfits.

Africana have a complete tribes vibes and african inspired graphics on the watches 

Beach Swing offers you a variety of styles in fresh and vibrant colours. The materials used for these watches is plastic/silcon and you can tag them for a beach day.

See you soon,

Bloom City - Phoenix Marketcity Kurla

Hello there :D

I am going to try and be very active on the blog too like I am on my socials. If you happen to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat you would have seen my pictures from Phoenix Market City, Kurla. I recently shot a look from Satya Paul, you can find them below.

Scarf - Satya Paul, Jeans - Arabella,
Heels - Lifestyle

Dublin Square is a very fancy setting inside the mall that gives you a very vacationing abroad vibe. It's quite calming and pretty which is why I couldn't help but shoot all of my looks there! Pictures will be coming soon ;)

At Phoenix Marketcity, they believe in reinvention, progressive fashion & inspiration which is why this Spring/Summer season, they are showcasing their beliefs by setting up an experience called #BloomCity. The attempt was to create a selfie city with installations and floral tributes to some of the maestro painters including Monet, Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and more. They've put in real effort to offer something new this season. 

You can expect to see this season’s best collection from 600+ retailers, exciting offers on fine dining, a whole new take on fragrance architecture and most of all - a unique “floral” journey. I shot with few of the installations at the mall and the pictures sure please my eyes! If you happen to visit Phoenix Market City anytime soon, don't forget to visit the installation space. I'm sure you'll end up clicking a few pictures and do tag them as they'd love to see it!

See you soon,

My Partner in Style – The Samsung Gear S2


Each one of us has a specific style preference. Our tastes and preferences tend to be similar, but as
far as style goes, it’s something that’s unique to every individual.
What stands out for me, are products that can cater the style needs of not one, but many. And if
you’ve been following me on my blog and social handles, you’ll know that these days, my one style
staple has been the Samsung Gear S2.

With the Gear S2, it looks to me like Samsung has combined some very crucial elements of style and
technology to create a gadget that is extremely versatile. The circular interface and the slender strap
lend a sophistication that is rarely seen when it comes to gadgets.

Though there are many wearables in the market today that can cater to utility; but when comes to
an accessory that fits an individual’s need for style, there’s not much to look at.
The Gear S2 offers so many options for customisation, that you can try all sorts of combinations of
straps and watch faces to make it suitable to your look.

I wore my Gear S2 to all kinds of events; the fashion week, to meetings, outings with friends, and on
every occasion, it paired perfectly with all my outfits.

Here are all the looks I tried out!

See you,

ShopOlympics Ft. Phoenix Marketcity Pune

Helllooo :D

Recently, Phoenix Marketcity - Pune had a super fun contest/event called "ShopOlympics" where I, along with three other Pune bloggers participated and had an awesome time. Our challenge was to create as many looks within 60 minutes and a budget of Rs 5000. Definitely a challenge ! Hahaha!

We could not select our preferred brands and we had to pick out chits and I was praying that I should get my favourite brand. I got FBB (Fashion at Big Bazaar) and I was really happy about it. I rushed to the store as the timer started. When I entered the store I was surprised to see their spring summer collection and all of the stuff was so reasonably priced. I created four looks and am sharing the pictures down below :D

Look 1 - Shopping Look

I love maxi skirts because they are just too comfy and if I am going for shopping then I always prefer wearing very comfortable clothing. Unfortunately, I didn't have pictures of this look in my DSLR so bear with my phone camera image ;)

Look 2 - Movie Date Look

I love loose trousers and when I saw this pair at FBB, I knew I had to style it. I would wear this relaxed look with my girlfriends for a movie date for sure.

Look 3 -  Dinner Look

Print on Print is something I always intend to do wear and was happy with how the prints blended well. Would give this a go for a dinner date.

Look 4 - Coffee Date Look

This is my favourite look! Denim is something that can never go wrong and works perfectly for almost everything. I was in this dress throughout the day after I put it on.
This look is a very chilled out look and can be worn for outing with friends or even a coffee date.

So I created these four looks and had an amazing time there. I also met few of my cuties who actually came to the mall to see me. I am just more than thankful to each one of you. Before I get emotional, how can I forget my blogger friends who made me feel so comfortable and we all had a blast.

Hoping you enjoyed the post. See you super soon :D

Summers Are Here - Myntra


I have been travelling quite a bit and finally am back to Mumbai and the warm weather.
Summers are the perfect for playing around with colours and light outfits. For me, summers are to chill in loungy clothes with comfort always being a priority.

When I was introduced to All About You collection by Deepika Padukone on Myntra, the whole collection gives a very colourful and cheerful vibe. I love prints personally but I prefer solids on me so I decided to go with this orange crop top and beige palazzos pants. We shot this one on the beach and totally loved the outcome of the pictures as they spoke for exactly what I had in mind, me chilling like a boss with the relaxing morning breeze!

I hope you all enjoy the pictures and can check the whole collection of All About You by Deepika here. Have a super awesome day!


See you soon,
