Easy Breezy Floral Dress for Summer

Blogging is fun but it is not easy especially when the weather doesn’t support it. It was raining in Boston last week making it a non-ideal situation for the photo shoot. I am still experimenting with my blogging style and I like to explore new locations to see what works the most. It takes a lot of hard work tracking down good locations and coming up with new ideas to share. I found a hidden gem just 2 miles from my place – Wollaston Beach (Yacht clubs). 

After being MIA for the past 2 weeks, I am back with more summer fashion ideas. I see summer as an upbeat and cheerful time. I lean towards colorful outfits and bold prints as much as possible before getting into winter grays, black and whites. I found this beautiful halter neck dress with watercolor floral print at Shein. I bought a size ‘S’, it fits well and I like the length of the dress as well. The only downside to this dress is you have to keep pulling it down as you move your arms up. Shein has become one of the favorite online stores for clothes shopping.

I’m also enjoying the ‘end of the summer’ sales as well. Recently, I shopped a lot of stuff from Zara including these amazing Fuchsia/orange high heels. These are definitely one of favorite purchases of the summer. I love the pop of color.

Must have Picnic Essentials

WHETHER IT’S THE BEST OF TIMES OR THE WORST OF TIMES, IT’S THE ONLY TIME YOU’VE GOT!

The 4th of July was a really fun day for us. We shopped all afternoon, and in the evening, we went to see the best show Boston put on – Boston Pops’ concert, and the fireworks. We met with our friends and had a small picnic by the water at Charles River Esplanade. It was a relaxing time; we played some games, had home cooked snacks and watched the extravagant fireworks.

I am so happy to share my picnic look with you all. The fuchsia skort (shorts + skirt) and Polka dot t-shirt with puffy sleeves are both from Zara under $50 – This outfit I styled had a Kate Spade vibe to it. It’s classy and comfortable, especially for picnics. I love the ‘pop’ of color in the shorts. Let’s also talk about the must-have bag of the season – the Straw tote. I chose this neutral bag with the ‘color block’ design and colorful tassels on it. It’s a perfect bag for day trips and Picnics.

Ombre Dye Maxi Dress

Hello Loves! I have been having a wonderful time enjoying the long summer days. When it comes to styling outfits for summer, I love the good old maxi dresses. You cannot have enough of them in your closet for summer because they are perfect for picnics, beach outings, and even weddings. I recently bought this Blue maxi dress featuring an ombre dye wash, strapless cut, high neck, drawstring keyhole back, and an M-slit skirt. The fabric is very basic and soft. If you pair this dress with red sandals, it will make for a flawless outfit for 4th of July weekend. I wore this dress on our day trip to Martha’s Vineyard; it was comfortable and complemented the vibe of the Island.

Picnic at Castle Island

I am surprised how much Boston has to show to the world. Recently, I found out about Boston Harbor Islands and I went to one of them – Castle Island with my girlfriends. Castle Island is located on Day Boulevard in South Boston on the shore of Boston Harbor. It is currently a 22-acre recreation site. It’s a perfect little summer world in itself; beaches, picnic spots, a huge area for games, beautiful sunsets and recreational activities including Kitesurfing. It’s easier to get there and has a lot of parking in different sections of the island. We spent about 3-4 hours at this place sitting by the water, playing card games and having light snacks. We took some fun pictures while exploring the area.

For this day, I chose to wear a beautiful and Vibrant Maxi dress by Shein. It’s a high-low, halter style dress with color block design. I am impressed with this online brand, the quality of the products for the price, and quick delivery. I am also very excited to style my first Austin earrings by Charming Charlie. I love the color contrast in this piece and it is a great accessory for the summer.

Pink Dobby Frill Front Dress

Fashion has always been a repetition of ideas but what makes it new is the way you put it together.

Welcome to my blog 🙂

I feel so grateful to be able to put together the styling ideas I get in my mind and having a platform to express the same. I have seen my personal style evolving in the past few years. It depends a lot on your current lifestyle, location, choices, and feelings.  While I maintain my personal style most of the times, I try to do something out of my comfort zone or something I have not done before.

Summer has always been my favorite season because one can be carefree and wild. My basic color palette includes bright colors, florals, and bold prints; it gives me joy and confidence. I love Pastel colors but I never thought they would make a place in my closet. However, this summer has been a little different for me; I picked up some pastel color dresses. I like the subtlety & delicacy of these colors and love how these can still make a powerful impact – It gives softness to your character; I feel colors talk a lot about one’s personality.

I recently bought a Pink Dobby Frill Shirt dress from ‘Missguided US’. I love how this dress brings out one’s feminine side. I styled this dress two ways – first look is the carefree look, and the second look is a bit edgier. I love this hue of rose, the bell sleeves and the tiered frills on this dress. I love the length of this dress; it’s perfect for petite sizes. I am usually a US size XS or a 2 and a UK size 6 so make sure you check the size guide. Missguided is an online fashion retailer based in the UK so don’t get confused between US and UK sizes.

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and you’re sipping cold coffee.

I had a wonderful time on Saturday at Seaport, Boston. I met with a friend at a vegan restaurant “By Chloe” and we chatted for a while. We took the opportunity to bask in the sun. Afterwards, we went for a walk by the water and took some amazing pictures.

Let’s talk about the outfit of the day! This bright Asymmetrical dress from Shein comes in more than 15 colors making it hard to choose just one. I don’t have enough green in my wardrobe so I picked that color. I might just buy another color in this dress because it’s so versatile and can be styled in many ways. I like that it’s airy & flowy making it the perfect sundress for summer.

Stay tuned for more posts this summer!

The classic style – Jacket

A denim jacket is a must in everyone’s wardrobe, the design that goes with all kinds of outfits. It never goes out of style.

I have listed a few of my favorite brands.

Levi’s Denim jacket, Gap Denim Jacket, ASOS oversized Jean Jacket

Here’s how I styled some of my favorite stripes:
