Black statement romper

There are some pieces that tend to make a statement all on their own. They are so effortless in the chic department, that not much really needs to be done from our side. Except play along with the colors and accessories to add to the oomph._DSC2180And that’s exactly what I did. Lol. I love wearing black for a dinner or night out.. whether it’s summer or winter. Black is timeless. And since it is summer, I am totally loving the romper trend and jumped right onto that for a dressy outfit as well. This black open sleeve cape romper has soo many trends all thrown into one piece –

  1. If you don’t already know by looking at my previous posts, I am loving the cape trend. I already own a white cape blazer that I styled in 3 different ways already! *covers eyes*
  2. Cold shoulder – This trend has been popular for a while – whether it is sweaters or summery whites, it’s already been there for a while.
  3. Romper – One of my absolute favorite go-to for summer is a romper. And when you find a dressy black that, you don’t say no. Lol.

_DSC2178This one is from Make me chic and totally lives up to its ‘chicness’. Lol. It fits beautifully, except for the plunging neckline that’s not exactly to my taste. I’m wearing a size S here. The thing I really like about Make me Chic is that, they do have some really really good outfits and styles on their site and for a great price at that. If you haven’t already checked them out, I totally urge you to do so. I always find it hard to pick just one (Psstt.. I already have another package on the way! *covers eyes.. again!*) _DSC2176

Review – Zaful

Another summer look, another floral piece.. that’s the first thing that comes to mind, right?! Not. Not for this outfit from Zaful!! When I saw this amazing floral romper, I knew I had to have it. For so many reasons! I love it when my summer outfits have something white in them and this romper looked so summery (sans the bright colors) with the blue and white floral print on it!Floral2

I am always skeptical about how a romper fits and these are the woes of online shopping! Sometimes, rompers can be longer in length than you’d like and have an odd fitting to it but I have to say that this piece totally exceeded my expectations! From the first time I put it on, it has fit me so seamlessly and absolutely perfectly! It is true to size so there’s no room for stretch at all and I am wearing a size S here. I wondered if the quality may not be great because this one was less than $25, but there too, nothing has been spared. The material is great and really soft, you can’t help but wonder how such a great piece is priced so well!!! The delivery for the outfit was very quick – I received it in less than a week!

Floral5And Zaful also has some other fantastic options on their website – I actually found it hard to pick just one item there! This look is definitely one that’s going to be on repeat for me!!So if you’re looking for another website to spend your time and $$ on (wink wink), Zaful is a great option for you!

Black sleeveless blazer

Out with the old, in with the bold. Vest2

Vest7As we see more and more styles come and go, our own sense of fashion evolves. What was in yesterday, might literally be out tomorrow and with all these changing trends, we find ourselves slowly (but surely!) becoming more and more fashion forward. Plain jeans are not so plain anymore, but are ripped instead, and blazers don’t necessarily have sleeves anymore, but are sleeveless. In life, I have always been one to not just be open to change but to fully embrace it.. and I have applied the same principle in my fashion sense as well. More ripped the jeans, the better, for example. Lol. And this summer look, that could be very basic.. has been made bold and very fashion forward instead. Blue jeans, and a plain white tee with a blazer has been replaced with ultra ripped denims, a gray cami and a sleeveless blazer instead. Even what would earlier have been black strappy heels has been replaced with nude caged heels instead. Vest3One of my favorite pieces for summer has been the off-beat blazers! Be it your cape blazer or this sleeveless one from SheInside, they are so versatile and are uber chic. Since this sleeveless blazer has a very edgy yet sophisticated look to it, I chose to pair it with my super ripped denims and give the look a bit of attitude with these nude caged heels. And how amazing are these black sunnies from Zaful? These black metal bar sunnies are amazing quality and they go with everything! Vest4

Collaboration with Rosegal – 2

As I bring this all white look – which to me represents ‘purity’, I want to introduce you all to a term called ‘Ubuntu’, in case you are not already aware of it. I read about this term in the  Oprah magazine, July 2016 edition and fell in love with the article that talked about it.White3And here’s the gist of the whole idea –

We have all heard and believed in the phrase ‘survival of the fittest’ as far as evolution of man is concerned, right? Even for all of us, we were set up for a lifetime of comparison and competition literally from our first breath. And as we step into adulthood and the working world, we’re still probably doing that.. comparing, almost reflexively. And with all this comparison, there might come a tinge of envy.. that green-eyed monster we’re all aware of. Some say that the dog-eat-dog mind-set is natural law.. and it may even be accepted in certain places. But not in parts of Rural South Africa. There they practice something called ‘Ubuntu’ instead. The word has no direct English translation but it essentially means ‘I am because we are’.  To quote from the magazine – ‘Ubuntu’ reminds us that humans didn’t become a dominant species by competing, but by cooperating. In small villages surrounded by threatening wild animals, each person is precious there, and sharing brings abundance. If one villager learns a skill, say- a new way of growing food – she benefits more from teaching others than from using her knowledge to compete against them.

How beautiful is that?! Another practice of Ubuntu is that when someone does something wrong, he is taken to the center of the village and surrounded by his tribe for two days while they speak of all the good he has done. They believe each person is good, yet sometimes we make mistakes, which is really a cry for help. They unite in this ritual to encourage the person to reconnect with his true nature. The belief is that unity and affirmation have more power to change behavior than shame and punishment. This is known as Ubuntu – humanity towards others. White5Enough with the serious talk right?! And coming right back to fashion. This look is inspired by the wonderful Janna Doan’s all white look from a few months ago. This girl has some seriously classy taste! So for collaborating with Rosegal, I thought I’d do my very own summer version of it.. white shorts, a not so plain white top and white sneaks. Of course, added the Chloe dupe to throw in some of that color. This lace white top is such a great alternative to a plain white one and is available as ‘one size’ on their website. I love how easily it fits, it’s an absolutely no-fuss top. So this is my easy-breezy summer casual look with all the right amounts of statement somethings thrown in there. White2
