☀️Summer Style Series : Jumpsuit Edition☀️

☀️Sunny days call for cool comfortable dressing like this chambray jumpsuit. Being petite and a little curvy it’s very difficult for me to find a jumpsuit that doesn’t make me look like chubby toddler sans the pigtails 😳. This one from old navy is a near perfect fit ( I had to do some alterations since it was pretty loose).

☀️Other than that it has everything that I want in a jumpsuit including a handy zipper at the back which makes getting in and out a cinch 👍🏼. For those of you who haven’t worn a jumpsuit before that entire thing needs to come off incase you need to go to the bathroom 😳and trust me you don’t want to get stuck in a jumpsuit when you really need to go 🥺take it from someone who has been in that situation 🤫So what’s your take on jumpsuits?

☀️Summer Style Series: Friday Edition☀️

☀️And it’s finally Friday! 🥳Normally during summer vacations the entire week is one big weekend. But somehow no other day but Friday actually feels like the weekend. Back to the photo: if you think I’m displaying signs of sleepiness you are actually right.

☀️This is a pre breakfast 🍳🍞most importantly pre ☕️coffee/chai picture. And regardless of how many showers🚿 I take or how much makeup I put on or how slick my hair is if I haven’t had my breakfast I will continue to look like I’ve just rolled out of bed🛏😴.

☀️On a different note I decided to try the color pink on for a change. Pink is also one of those colors I would normally avoid wearing mostly because I felt the color didn’t suit me 😳. Back to the outfit I’m wearing a hand block printed( a fabric printing technique from India that requires artisans to carve blocks of wood into intricate patterns then dip those blocks into vegetable dyes and transfer the print onto fabric in this case pure cotton). The pants are flowy, cotton palazzos which are perfect for this weather and I’m wearing my favorite style of flats the jutti/khussa in white with gold and silver hand embroidery 🥰. Cost of each piece between $25-$30 bringing the total again to under $100 for the entire look.

☀️A little BTS 🎬info: the heat was actually quiet bearable which was probably due to the fact it was only 10 am at the time and the sun wasn’t in its full blistering 🔥glory till then. So before that happens I’m off to enjoy the day and all of you have a happy friday😘

☀️Summer Style Series☀️

Hey Fellow Bloggers,

☀️Summer is in full swing and what better time then now to start a style series to give you guys some style inspiration that won’t break the bank and is effortless and weather appropriate.

☀️I love following style blogs but usually the looks they feature are so expensive or require so many buying new pieces each time to recreate the look that I frankly with my limited budget can simply not achieve.

☀️I also tend to remix pieces a lot😋 since it extends the usability of my wardrobe. Plus I don’t follow fashion trends since they tend to go out of style very quickly and you are left with outfits that aren’t trendy anymore. That not only is a waste of your money it also means you are contributing to the worlds🌍 ever growing landfills.

☀️To avoid that I buy pieces that I can mix and match to create different outfit combinations. Also I have recently started to buy handmade, pure cotton clothing. Not only is it breathable in this heat, purchasing from small businesses helps support local craftspeople.

☀️Today’s outfit inspiration comprises of pieces that I have had for several years : my ivory sleeveless top from Loft Petites. I bought this top 4 years ago and I have worn it countless times because it is such a neutral color that works with prints and solids beautifully.

☀️My flowy pants are from American Eagle and I got them on clearance 🥳. These type of pants are perfect for summer they are not clingy and are made of soft, comfortable viscose (not a pure fabric I know but it’s insanely comfortable).

☀️My shoes are from TrunkLane. These are hand made pure leather flats that feature intricate silver embroidery that blings out any outfit and are super comfortable as well. All the pieces cost less than $30 each. So this entire look is under $100 making it super affordable.

☀️Hope you guys enjoyed this first installment of the summer style series. Let me know your style ideas I would love to hear them😘

ShopaholicBlogs💋⚜️What’s in my handbag⚜️

📸ShopaholicBlogs : On Terrible Pictures Then & Being a Poser Now 📸

I have always enjoyed posing for pictures📸 provided that I could see them after immediately and get rid of ones that were not flattering 😳. Today with IPhones and DSLR’s and countless filters we have a lot more control over how our pictures turn out (excluding the truly hideous ones taken by others who then further embarrass you by posting the humiliating picture in which except for themselves everyone else is either suffering from red eye or is caught with their mouth open in a yawn or mid laugh or some other truly unflattering pose that shouldn’t see the light of day let alone be posted all over social media with you tagged in bold 🤬😡.

📸Growing up however we had zero control over how our pictures would turn out. I’m referring to the reel cameras of the good old days in which you had to put in a roll of film with either 24 or 36 exposures and then wait until the film roll was back from the photo studio where the pictures were developed old school style and printed onto photo paper and that could take up-to a week. During this time there was a absolutely no way to preview the pictures and you had to wait for the dreaded envelope to arrive whereupon it would be viewed by the entire family together😳. I cannot tell you how many cringe 😫worthy photos of me are still floating around in various cousins and aunties dressing table drawers that some well meaning relative often times post on FB with the hashtag #throwback or #family which illicit comments like haye yeh tum aisi theen?? (Omg! You looked like that!)Which trust me since puberty was exceptionally unkind to me are pictures that truly deserve to be set on fire🔥

📸So back to the present and a safe distance away from my unflattering early teens 😳 Every-time I get a chance to dress up I make sure I pose like a pro and bring out my inner fashionista 😘 So for today’s what I wore post i donned this gorgeous block print maxi dress in airy cotton paired with what else my red👠 juttis/khussas✨. Am I spring🌸 and summer 🌞 ready or what 😘 Tell me some of your terrible picture stories 📸

☀️ShopaholicBlogs Saturday Musings ☀️

I love brick walls💞I love the texture, the imperfections, and the warmth they bring to a room. When I was little I used to imagine creating my own city where all the buildings would be built out of bricks and not a single house or building would be rundown( this was usually when we would going past Gizri market and I would see all the debilitated buildings). Fast forward to now I have abandoned the idea of building my very own brick city (it was a tad ambitious and required trillions of dollars which let’s admit it i’m not getting my hands on anytime soon 😋💸) so I now dream of owning my own home which will of course have exposed bricks either inside and on the exterior if I can afford it💸. Nevertheless every time I come across a brick wall I always take a picture of it and save it so when the time comes I’ll have a variety of brick patterns and styles to choose from 😋. Also getting back to today’s picture isn’t today the most amazing weather a Desi girl could ask for?😍 It’s a breezy, cloudy day perfect for striking a pose in 🤩. Which brings me to the all black outfit. Black I feel is such a versatile color that lends itself to any style of dressing be it causal, formal and even on days when my hair is acting like a b**** I find when I put on a black outfit I somehow end up looking pulled together and fabulousHere I’m in my favorite breezy black top with lace detail from the @loft petites collection paired with printed pants from @oldnavy petites. The top has a knit back which makes it a perfect go between for causal and semi formal meaning I can throw on some slacks and accessories later and be ready for a night out while keeping it chill for the day in my printed pants☺️ How do you guys style your blacks?
