Summertime Madness

{Silk Shorts - Zara, Shirt - Local Boutique, Bag/Shoes - Aldo, Necklace - Splash, Ring/Earcuffs - Forever 21}

The heat has taken over almost all the aspects of life. It's what we talk about, shop about and care about. The weekend was spent hunting for the perfect sunscreen for face and a lip balm with highest spf available. Light airy clothes are flying off the racks in stores. The AC is almost never off and when it is off, we are frantically calling electricians to come see what's wrong! I think you get the point, right? It's madness!

In such times, I switch to lightweight fabrics that allows my skin to breathe. The silk shorts have replaced the denim shorts and how! Cute prints and airy fabric makes for a perfect bottomwear in Summers. They can be paired with a simple block color t-shirt or a shirt and makes for a perfect outfit for going out to movies, lunch date with friends or just some casual shopping. But if you want to turn up the style-o-meter, pair these with a complementing print shirt, sky-high heels and add a statement necklace. Some clever detailings here and there and you are ready to rock the party.

I kept the look classy and simple as I was going for a meeting. You can hardly ever go wrong with a classic white shirt and they are always business appropriate. Kept the rest of the look simple with pulled back hair, a simple long necklace, bag and shoes in subtle hues and fuschia lipstick to add a punch of color. The structured bag adds sharpness to the whole attire. I am mostly impressed by the multiple wearability of this outfit, I can wear this to a brunch, a meeting, shopping or any other daytime event. And be comfortable while doing it all!

Stay Chic!

You look so neat and chic Srish! :) Can you tell us how you managed the hair? No fly aways! And the volume at the crown is awesome too. (I don't wish to use any hair products, is there any other way to manage the flyaways. I just make a ponytail and they are there and I just have learnt to live with them. :/

PS: I am Srishty too and an old reader here. :)

Hey! You wore those shorts to a meeting? Silk printed tiny shorts! I mean you look great but what suggestions do you have for people working in the corporate mad house?

@SrishtyGrover - To tame the flyaways, you will have to use hairspray or hair gel. Just spray some on when you are done and the hair will stay in place :)

@RajPatil - Thank you :)

@IshitaGuru - My meeting are informal so the silk shorts were just fine but I will make sure I do a post on work wear as well :)
