2015 is quickly making it to my list of favourite years. We welcomed home a new family member in March – my extremely adorable yet mischievous little golden retriever, Mojo. I’ve never been much of an animal lover, in fact I used to be someone who was quite freaked out by dogs, but this 4 month old munchkin has completely changed that. The amount of love I receive when I come back home, even if it’s only after half an hour, is incredible. I don’t think I knew true love until I met this little guy!
I also finally took a leap of faith and entered the fashion retail space (something I’ve wanted to do since forever) focusing on the one thing I truly love: accessories. The amount of support and encouragement I’ve received for this venture from friends, family and fellow bloggers has been absolutely overwhelming! Of course, I wanted to share something from our brand’s collection with you all, so an outfit post was imperative.
While summer is on its way out in India, resort wear is considered a year-round fashion, thanks to the generally warm weather. From bikinis to sundresses to short shorts; no wonder everyone’s such a big fan of resort clothing. My favourite, though, is the laid-back maxi – all those gorgeous prints in flowy silhouettes, which are so much fun to accessorize!
This breezy orange and white halter maxi stole my heart the minute I walked into the AND store. Worn with white pumps, the look is comfy casual yet elegant and feminine. You can go ahead and pair your maxi with tropéziennes instead of heels.
As this is a day look, the makeup is quite simple. I chose to stick with hints of pink on the eyelids and cheeks and a slightly darker pink for the lips. Nude shades are great for day looks too. Make sure you stay far away from smouldering smoky eyes, but don’t be afraid of being extra generous with the mascara – it’s the one thing that can make your eyes pop and look fresh.
I paired the maxi with dangling gold earrings (picked up from the streets of Bangkok), a set of metallic bracelets, and a statement ring. The cocktail ring is something I simply can’t leave my house without, plus it perfectly complements the bracelets. It’s also a good idea to add on a statement watch, along with the other hand accessories.
The über chic straw bag is from my very own brand, Chic Shack, which comes with a nautical stripes scarf. The beauty of this bag is that it can accompany you on a trip to the beach, a cruise vacation, or even a picnic at the park. This versatility makes it the quintessential accessory for spring/summer.
