I just really like mixing prints. It can be a tricky trend to attempt, but once you get a handle on print mixing, it can change your life. Think about it — when you can start creating combos that you have never tried before, your potential wardrobe combinations and permutations increase exponentially, you can get dressed faster, and you will impress your fashion friends (seemingly) effortlessly.

Spring has sprung. These days I am more gravitated towards lightweight printed silk pants and breezy pastel tops. It is becoming my ‘Spring Uniform‘. These beautiful printed pants from Nordstrom are perfect for spring and summer. Silk printed pants make a fun work outfit for the springtime. Pair them with a top in the same color palette for a more polished look. Keeping the accessories minimal is another great way to create a look that is worthy for a day at the office. Continue reading
I am a big believer that being comfortable doesn’t have to mean wearing yoga pants every day, which can be tempting for someone who works from home like me. Which is why I love outfits that have the appearance of being polished but, are also relaxed. There’s nothing restrictive about this look and thanks to the bright tank + blazer combination, it looks sophisticated even though it feels loose and easy. I am loving the geo print on them. These bright silky pants are great for dressing up with heels or wearing with flats…and the best part is that they comfortable while looking ultra chic. The trick to wearing bold prints and colors together is to complement the look with a basic blazer and accessories such as classic black pumps. This look also makes a fun outfit for the upcoming St. Patrick’s day festivities.
This perfect pair of slouchy trousers is from an amazing local boutique called Comfort Me (what a cute name!)! It is right here in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago and run by a mother & daughters team. And they have these pants in stock currently. I am in love with their unique and on-trend collections. The best part is they curate fashion and decor items from talented artisan designers based locally and around the country. They believe in comfort with style and fashion that makes you feel better. Head on over there soon as they have just the right stuff to cure that ongoing serious case of spring fever, such as these trendy I Madeline printed pants. Alyssa, one of the super friendly owners, would love to show you what more Comfort Me Boutique has in-stored for us for this spring season. Continue reading
Happy Monday! Red is a beautiful color and it can get tricky to not overdo it specially for crimson-lovers like me, around this time of the year. As an easy solution – I try to focus towards simple and classic styles in this bold hue to let the color shine. I teamed up with the stylish and talented Fiona from The Upmarket to come up with two different effortless looks that can take you from a date night to a small party to wherever the night takes you this holiday season. A candid look in an eye-catching tint can make for a very versatile outfit. It is the season to make a statement and let this flattering shade help you stand out this month. Be sure to head on over to The Upmarket for all her outfit details and for endless style inspiration! Continue reading
I like to play with bright colors to brighten up a wintery day.
Happy Monday! Today’s outfit is inspired by all those of you working in a conservative work environment such as teachers. I have the privilege of enjoying a lot of freedom in my work-wear. I try to incorporate new trends and silhouettes whenever I can. My sister-in-law, Riddhi, on the other hand is a fun and fantastic teacher who has to stay in the constraints of school appropriate work-wear. Over the weekend when I met her, I got to thinking what would I wear if I was in her shoes. I decided to try my hands as a stylist to come up with a look which would be trendy and still be limited to certain restrictions such as no short hemlines or uncomfortable high heels or casual jeans. So this post is dedicated to her for challenging me to come up with a work wear that is chic yet comfortable and is compliant with the work-wear standards of schools.
When putting together this look my mind instantly went to an embellished sweatshirt. Managing a classroom full of kids requires high comfort and not many things provide you the ease a soft sweatshirt can offer. Try and opt for a loose fit embellished one for a trendy and modern look.
In the summer time, I prefer soft and easy clothes. Although I am the girl who loves her breezy dresses, I enjoy wearing relaxed silk or linen summer pants in a variety of beautiful prints.
The printed pants are perfect for summer. Swap in flat sandals and you can easily take this outfit to a day of walking around at city the arts fair. Or you are ready for dinner with the way I styled it here. Patio seating please! 🙂
I love prints. The funkier the better. My current obsession is this ‘hello telephone’ print on this top. This summer be bold, be cheery and wear prints.
