To Fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness ~ Robert Morley
I can’t believe we are half way through February! This year we didn’t have plans for Valentine’s day other than just chilling at home; I did want to share this glam yet effortless winter look that is perfect for Valentine’s day or any other special occasion. I basically used most of the items from my closet – Black top, jeans and blush pink pumps.
Life Begins when you’re at the end of your comfort zone!
It has been a while since I wore a color coordinated outfit and I absolutely love how it turned out. I wore this outfit for brunch with my friends. I wanted to be comfortable and also, feel classy. The crop top is from Primark and I have worn it a few times before. The fabric quality is average.
One thing about Vintage Fashion – it always comes back with a bang. We have seen velvet, gingham and big floral prints emerge again as current design trends. Since I love vintage prints I got this skirt tailor-made. I bought this fabric from the local market in my hometown – Jalandhar (Punjab), India. The fabric is really thick and is not flowy. If you’re into vintage fashion with a modern twist, check out ‘Chicwish’. They have an amazing collection of vintage dresses & skirts, especially in floral and bold prints. Also, Etsy is another platform to look for vintage fabrics/outfits. I have linked down a few of my favorites from Chicwish in the similar prints as my skirt.
Fashion trends come and go every year but ‘Gingham’ is the most viral trend of summer 2017. I don’t follow every trend that is introduced in the market but I couldn’t resist this one. There’s Gingham print in dresses, shorts, tops, and skirts available in hues of red and blue. My suggestion is to experiment with the trends from stores like ‘Shein’ or ‘forever 21’ without breaking the bank. I scored a deal at Shein with this Navy blue and white flattering belted peplum top. I love the color scheme, especially with this bold print. I styled it with white denim and silver accessories for the dinner date.

Happy V-day Loves!
Red is the color of love and it’s one of my favorite colors too. However, I didn’t want to go all red this year. I chose a navy blue dress with red bag and red pumps. It wasn’t easy to find perfect red bag but I was lucky to get my hands on to the Aldo’s new V-day collection – this perfectly sized red bag with a little bow is to die for.
Also, I bought this dress in sale. I didn’t like it at first but when I tried it on, it fit perfectly and I like how it sits on my body. I like the length of the dress as well. Mostly I don’t find mini dresses because I am petite (5’4″ Under). Also, check out “Express” new Petite collection if you’re under 5’4″.
