Beach Holiday Outfit Ideas

Beach holidays are ever so refreshing. I get a sense of calmness just by looking at the blue water. I love beach holiday, actually who doesn’t. I need it at least once a year to get me going. This year I had an opportunity to explore some hidden and quiet beaches along the coast of southern Italy in Puglia.

When it comes to beach dressing it has to be effortless and fuss free. Something that can be multi-purpose: both a cover up and an outfit. Today I share two outfits with you that are ideal for spending an afternoon/evening stroll on the beach.

Shorts in the city

Great British summer is spreading its wings over London and it’s now time to make the most of it. I personally think summer is the best time to be in London. For most it’s the holiday season but if you truly want to make the most of London and British summer then stay put. This is the time to enjoy after office drinks, lazy summer picnics and just a glass of red wine in your backyard.Say goodbye to heavy layers and infuse some freshness to your light summer wardrobe.

Follow me in Puglia Part 2

White cone roof houses , Trulli Alberobello

On Day 2 of our holiday in Puglia, in southern Italy, we drove down to Alberobello. The very reason we planned our holiday was to visit the ancient white cone roof houses called Trullis in Alberobello, a UNESCO world heritage site. What we didn’t realise that it’s a very popular tourist destination and even in the non-holiday season there are queues to get into the city. Arpit’s broken Italian came in very handy when asking for directions, as the GPS didn’t take us to the main parking area. Continue reading

Follow me in Puglia – Part 1

During this Easter break we decided to visit Italy for our annual holiday. The reason why we chose Italy was because of this song. Both me and Arpit fell in love with the beautiful white cone-roofed houses. We did some research to figure out the exact location of the scenic places featured in the video. Finally we were able to trace the place down to Puglia in southern Italy.  Continue reading

What’s your Red Carpet Style? House of Fraser

This Mother’s day I wrote  ‘Inspired by mum’ outfit post for House of Fraser’s blog, where I created a look taking inspiration from my mum. This month House of Fraser asked me to participate in ‘ What’s your Red Carpet Style’ competition where I had a to create my very own red carpet style outfit. Well I had a quick look in my closet and there was absolutely nothing that I could call as red carpet style. And frankly I did not have a reason to have one either. If I were to attend a red carpet occasion I would take inspiration from my favourite fashion celebrities like Victoria Bekham , Sonam Kapoor , Emma Watson and Alexandra Chung. I would probably choose something elegant yet with modern cuts and design. This dress below from French Connection which I wore at the #canthelpmyselfie event would come close to my red carpet style. All I need is the following items from House of Fraser to complete my look.

1. Sparkling faceted clutch bag 

2. These lovely diamante detail t-bar stiletto sandals Indian fashion blogger

I think the above items would definitely do justice to my dress and create a stunning red carpet outfit. Do share your red carpet outfit ideas here . Would love to hear bout your choices. Till then shine on.
