If you’ve visited Agra, chances are you’ve already seen the colossal Taj Mahal. Well, it was my first visit to Agra (technically, second visit as I did come here with my parents when I was three but I hardly remember it). We drove down to Agra from Delhi and straight headed to our hotel. After check in and lunch, we headed to Agra Fort.
Built in red sandstone and marble, this magnificent architecture exudes a majestic feeling once you enter the courtyards. This fort is just two and a half kilometers away from Taj Mahal and has multiple palaces, gardens and mosques. The details on these palaces are astonishing and I could stare at it wondering what the inspiration was behind every pattern. Every corner of the fort had stories to tell from the Mughal times.
If you know me really well, you know I love my earrings. From dainty to chunky statement ones (mostly chunky) - I love 'em all!
Here are my current favourites..
A framed painting... LOOOVE! This one gives out such vintage vibes. The first time I saw it, I knew I had to get this one. I wore these repeatedly during my trips to Paris and London. This pair goes with anything classic and minimal. I bought this from Shein and it has become one of my favourite picks so far.
The second pair is from H&M and this one's my go to pair when I wear shades like beige, browns or whites. It's a statement piece so I try not to overdress myself with this one.
A long panelled jhumki - Love at first sight! This is one of my recent purchase and it's from Lajpat Nagar in Delhi. Lajpat Nagar will never fail...
Today’s fashion essential is about styling quirky winter pieces with basics. I’ve always loved winter and the styling potential winter clothes have. I see people more often wearing bright colours during summers and neutrals during winters so, I wanted to break that monotony a bit and play with colours to make winter less gloomy. Invest in a few key pieces and keep building your outfit around it. It's fun and exciting to see how one piece can look so different when styled differently.
I don’t believe in having a separate wardrobe for winter and summer clothes. Winter is the best time to use summer basics as inner or outer layers.
The only 2 key winter pieces are the knit sweater and the over-sized corduroy jacket.
This year I tried not shop for festive seasons specifically and solely invest in pieces that I could wear all year round.
In an Instagram sea filled with sequin dresses and tassel skirts, I wanted to stick to basics that I won’t fall out of love restyling and repeating them.
After my previous post, it’s safe to say I’m in love with over-sized blazers. It’s a look that makes me feel confident, and a look that I have come to rely on for so many occasions, I felt like I’m channeling my inner Nineties Babe. So this Christmas, I wanted to wear something different and rebel against the same ol’ red dress. I wanted to feel pretty with a tinge of masculinity.
For me, this is a look I can play around with in multiple ways. The ove...
It's been a year filled with happiness and equal amount of tears but I guess that's what life is all about. While I felt really low in the past couple of months, I made sure to not sulk in and create happiness around me. Here's little note to you and I, just to remind our self-worth.
These three quotes have been special to me this year and have stuck through me this year.
"Do not be afraid of growing slowly; be afraid of standing still" - Chinese Proverb
I've always tried my best to never get paralyzed by the challenges that life brings in. It's difficult to understand why it happens to us but its around this time you find the right people who stand by you and stick through no matter what. It also made me realise that these hurdles make you stronger.
