LIGHT NEUTRALS







KOMONO Sunglasses / LEVIS Jacket / NEWLOOK Top / 
LINEN Trousers / TFT DULLA Sandals 

Something light and bright that falls against the dark and grey monsoon season. This was shot few weeks before by a very talented friend Santosh Chantyal.
Tan suedette tank with breathable and comforatable linen trousers was the choice as a base for my outfit. I wore a denim jacket over the shoulders to create a tonal contrast with the warm base and cool tone jacket. 

For the accessories I went with my favourite sunglasses for this season. The Shaun - acetate tortoise by Komono. These sunnies are trendy yet wearable and light weight. A simple rose gold watch to match the colour theme. 

Finally, finishing it with my tan brown cushioned sandals by The Fatory Team- Dulla which undoubtley are the most comfortable falts I own. But you need to be very careful and avoid any contact with water as it easily get wet. All and all it is a perfect summer sandals not quite for rainy days. 

P.S. how beautiful are those bougainvillea.

Finally posting a long awaited collaboration brings me joy! 
A very talented stylist and a vibrant blogger based in Mumbai, India, Parakram SJB Rana has been in the industry since 2015. It's so nice to meet with those who share the same love for fashion joining hands to collaborate and further spread our love for fashion. The location that is Baber Mahal Vilas makes you get your perfect shots. While Parakram SJB Rana aka The Style Versatile who I am collaborating with pairs up modestly for this blog post. It's the winter sun, so the perfect evening sunlight lasts for typically about half an hour before it gets pitch dark all at once.

HER: Styled a light grey belted blazer that could belong to the 80s but has a more contemporary touch with slim shoulder silhouette. The blazer features a belt that defines my waist. Paired it with a long black flared trousers and added some height to balance the length of the trousers. And to soften the strong look I went for a streamlined circular gold earrings and vintage tortoise shell micro glasses. A simple yet powerful ensemble.
