Finally I wore a cape today! I have been wanting to seriously wear this trend, without looking OTT.Today for a day out with my son to the mall and the movies, I wore this navy blue cape with an all black outfit and navy boots.I also wore a statement silver neckpiece.
and a selfie in the car…
Yess…for me this is true. I am huge fan of this color. I also mix blue with black for an interesting look.
I wear longish outfits, as they are slimming and suit my age.
Here, I am wearing a blue kurta with black palazzos, and a navy blue long fine knit sweater. (sorry for the bad picture quality…working towards it!)
I have accessorized it with a silver necklace with Lapis Lazuli beads, that I got from Jaipur.
Wore this to an evening at a winter carnival .
To take care of the walking, wore nude flats
I am a huge fan of traditional wear but I love a slight twist. Today I am wearing a long yellowish beige kurta with an animal print patching on the neckline and on the hemline.
I have paired it with a simple silver hasli and diamond earrings.
To beat the chill I have picked up a black shrug.
Beige ballet flats complete the look.
The key is not to go OTT and let the animal print stand out.
This is a nice outfit for fall. It is traditional yet has a contemporary touch to it.
I always maintain that fashion should be comfortable and it should look good on you. One should not follow trends blindly.
For me and my work environment, I mainly stick to long kurtas.It definitely gives a slimmer silouhette and looks good.
Here I am sharing with you my favorite color blocked kurta,that I bought from a boutique in delhi. I have paired it with palazzos and also a black dupatta.As it is fall, deep colors look very nice.
My all time silver jewellery finishes the look.
When there is a lot of color in your outfit, always go for nude slippers.
This kurta is priced at INR3500.
It always is a good idea to have a capsule wardrobe of basic must haves like nude slippers, black lowers and statement neckpieces . That way, you just have to buy uppers, and then it is easy to mix and match.
The best way to go formal easily is to wear black. You can add shimmer by way of accessories. Here I am wearing a long black lawn pakistani kurta with black pyjama pants. To add a hint of shimmer ,I have worn silver chappals and a pure silver necklace with orange beads. The kurta and pyjamas along with the slippers cost around INR 3500.
The silver necklace is for around INR4000 picked up from an exhibition. I wore this to a club. It was an informal dinner with friends.
Hope you like the look!

My last post…”Why fashion?” ,set me thinking. It set me thinking about my place in my life and in the life of my near and dear ones. They love me and I love them , but I love myself more.You have to do that. Liberate yourself . And I am trying to do that via my blog. No doubt it is about fashion but more than that it is about me and you. I want to know you. I want to learn about your fashions and introduce you to my culture. There are Winds of Change all around and I want to be a part of it.So here it is….welcome to my world.
A small example of how I have incorporated this change into my life is by way of my favourite accessory…my neckpieces. Considering my profession(I am a doctor teaching medical students in India) I could not wear the flashy and in your face jewellery. So I literally got a ” SILVER LINING” into my daily attire by way of silver jewellery. And I must tell you how much it is loved by the people around me. So many compliments and ”WOWS” later I am sharing some of the lovely silver jewellery .
These are some of my silver neckpieces that look great with most of my Indian and western clothes.
Let me tell you they never fail to get noticed and appreciated.
So till next time. Loads of love.
