What I wore in Newport

Day 1 – I wore this beautiful High-Low Blue dress to the Mansion to complement the magnificent beauty of it. The dress is from Zaful and is under $30. The material is not Chiffon as described but polyester so the quality is average. The color is really gorgeous and the dress is exactly how it looks in the picture.

A Perfect dress for a BBQ

This past Sunday our friends hosted a barbecue party at their place and it was so much fun! We discovered a beautiful and tranquil scene on our way to their place. We decided to stop at that picnic area to admire it and click some pictures. The reflection of the clouds and trees in the water gave it a beautiful mirror effect.

About the look – This cute short and sleeveless dress with a low-cut neckline at back, seam at waist, and flared skirt is from HM. This dress is only for $10 and comes in 10 different prints and colors- so many options. I couldn’t pass up this deal so I bought this in white with a blue floral print and another one in black with white polka dots. I usually wear size 2 or XS but I had to size up this dress. My wedges are from Payless Shoe source; very comfortable and reasonable as well. I have linked similar wedges below.  My cross-body bag and sunglasses are from Shopper’s Stop (India) but I have linked similar styles available in the US.

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.

7 Ways to wear Denim 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 had invested in one long time ago from Splash fashions and it still is in great condition. If you don’t own one, get one this summer for the colder evenings. I have listed a few of my favorite brands.

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

Dreamy Denim Dress

Well, I have to say, it took me so long to find a perfect denim dress but it was worth the wait. This is how I styled my favorite Denim cami dress from Express. It is currently on sale and is under $40. If this is not your style, here are the other options for you.

H&M denim dress, Forever 21 Denim Flounce off the shoulder dress, Bloomingdale’s Denim Shirtdress

Denim Shoes

Denim shoes are everywhere right now in the form of stilettoes, pumps, mules but my favorite are the Denim Slides. I got these from Forever 21 and they are under $20. I love the fringe denim look and they are very comfortable.

Additional options: Forever 21 Denim mules, Mix no. 6 Denim Pumps from DSW, Converse Denim Sneakers from DSW

Denim Shirt

This is also one of denim forms that have been trending for a long time. I found a perfect denim shirt/top from Primark. The fabric is so soft and I like the frilly arms. I can’t find it online but here are the other options:

Target Button-down denim shirt

Denim choker                                                                                                               

This is the simplest denim piece to style. The trend of Choker is still going strong this summer and they can make a part of your wardrobe without breaking your pocket. If they are part of your style, you can choose from the below options. I bought mine from Charming Charlie and it was on sale.

This trend has been coming strong from 2016 but it is ruling this year. I have found so many options for denim bags and they all look so trendy and casual.

Spring/Summer Trend 2017 – Stripes

This spring, Stripes are seen everywhere. It comes in different variations; nautical, 70s and Technicolor. It was a common theme on 2017 runways. I didn’t go really crazy with colors and variations. I like them simple but I have listed some of the others for ideas.

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

  1. Striped Jumpsuit
  2. I have been adoring the Primark’s new collection for Spring/Summer 2017. This jumpsuit in particular is a steal, it has two variations of stripes – diagonal and vertical.  I also love the colors – Blush Pink and navy blue. The Fabric has this woolen feel, but it’s actually for warmer weather.
  3. Outfit details –
  4. Navy Pink Striped Jumpsuit – Here

 

2.Stripes in a Shirt Dress

  1. This is by far my favorite stripe styling because it’s so versatile. This shirt dress can be styled many ways. I would be doing a separate post on this one.
  2. Shirt Dress –
  1. 3. Classic Stripes

This is the simplest yet classy outfit, I got this one from Primark as well. It doesn’t take much time to decide on buying              a dress like that. It will be perfect for summer to just put on when you don’t know what to wear.

Spring/Summer Trends 2017

Trends come and go but trendy doesn’t mean stylish. Not all the trends will please your personality or style. I personally don’t adopt each trend and I like to develop my own style that transcends many seasons. It doesn’t mean you should not follow new trends. Each year I pick a new trend or two and personalize it according to my style preferences. I have been following New York Fashion Week (NYFW), Paris Fashion Week (PFW) and have seen below trends for this season. Also, I have listed a few websites I like to shop from.

Head to toe florals

Warmer weather, blooming flowers, flip flops and green grass – Florals are probably my favorite for spring & summer. It is something that really works for me. Here are some of my favorites for floral collection –

Ruffles, Frills and Bell Sleeves

This is the most hyped trend of the season- many of my favorite fashion bloggers are already taking this trend to another level. I am not sure how it would suit my personality but I am thinking to give it a try.

Big Bold Stripes

It may look less appealing at first but I already have styled one outfit with big bold stripes, I really liked it. I will be exploring more of this trend in spring. Here are some of the options –

Denim everything

Denim is still going strong from last summer, but now it is available in prints, soft denim, overalls, with patches, embroidery and gems as well. I do have some pieces from last year which I will be restyling. Options:-

Khaki

Yes, it’s back but with a modern twist. I remember seeing khaki pants in the last decade. I like the new look of it, especially as a jacket or a dress. There are Khaki jumpsuits and shorts, skirts in the market too. Here are a few options –

Gingham

We saw a glimpse of this print last year but it has made its way back in this year. I do have a crop top I bought in this print last year but I am seeing a lot of gingham dresses, tops online. Here are some of the options to shop from:

Color Block

I don’t have anything in my wardrobe with color block design. I will definitely be trying this new trend and see if it works for me. Here are some options to shop from:

 

Peace,

Richa

Spring/Summer Color Trends 2017

Hello 🙂

I just wanted to share something different this time, and with new York Fashion week (Women’s) wrapping up today, I thought I would show the way and see what colors would be trending this Spring/Summer 2017.

I have recently started referring to the “Pantone Fashion color report” for the color trends. We all will be seeing all the spring/summer styles in the market with these colors in 2017. The colors truly express the nature,  some are so vibrant and lively, and some of them are earthly tones and soothing to your eyes. To me, these colors totally express the water, earth, fire and air – the four elements of the world. I have already seen “Primrose Yellow”, “Pale Dogwood” and “Island Paradise” in the Market  a lot and I do own some of the pieces in these shades. I am sure all of us have found at least one favorite color in the palette below. Unlike trends from past few years, we will see a lot more colors this season.

My next post will be about the “styles that are trending spring/summer 2017”.

Stay Tuned!
