Boldly be a ” pop of colour ” in a black & white world.

Hi everyone.. πŸ™‚  How are you all doing? I am guessing here that, you guys are all set to enjoy the weekend and also making plans and doing all sort of preparations for the upcoming month’s festivities. Yess.. in a week’s time we all would be cherishing the siblings bond and then a week later, the feeling of patriotism will sink in.

There is something about both these festivals i.e. Raksha bandhan and The Independence Day that evokes emotions inside amongst us Indians. And more than a celebration, these two festivals are a way of expression of love that we have for our brothers/sisters and our nation.

And , who doesn’t wants to look good while going through all those overwhelming emotions and celebrating life in all its glory. Well.. I certainly do.

Nature wears the colours of the spirit. And that makes me wonder, if my spirit is multicoloured.

Keeping in mind that, Raksha bandhan is just round the corner I decided to come up with a Raksha bandhan outfits series. And, this is the first edit of the series wherein I am going colour burst. Btw, this is what I am all about in real life too because, #ilovecolours . Nuff said, let’s roll down to the pics β‡“

Fun fact : Do you know that this purple thing that I am wearing (put aside the orange pants) is actually a maxi dress with a high slit in the front?? The nexxt pic will explain my words here.

This is the original style of the dress. It has this hiiiiiigh slit in the front that goes up to your navel. Also it has 3/4th sleeves that you can’t see as I rolled it up & pinned it under the frills. πŸ˜€

Now, I had decided that I will be creating a fusion look using this dress. But, the question that remained was “How”.

The answer to the “How” came in the form of these bright orange palazzo pants & dupatta that I had as a matching to some other suit in my closet. I just loved the thought of pairing these two contrasting colours together. ❀

While putting up together this look, I tucked in the maxi right from the high slit point from both sides to give some way out to the pants. Also, I just tied the dupatta round my neck and left it at the back. And, did I love the outcome.. ❀

Finally, in terms of jewelry I just added a piece of beautiful orange statement earings that I have and used it as a tika. πŸ™‚

As they say, Go bold or Go home ! Finished off the look with some copper stilettos.
