It is pretty easy to guess that I love dresses and just need any or as many excuses to wear them. And I love them in all colors – Be it red, green or sparkles. This is one of my favorite dresses for December. A drop-waist dress is the ultimate fall/winter dress.  I love how versatile it is.  It is great for both casual and more dressed up occasions, and by tweaking the shoes and accessories, it can be styled to fit a range of personal styles. Go from glam to classic, preppy to edgy or keep it clean and minimal. So much to play with. Continue reading

Holiday Style Inspiration : 1 dress, 2 ways

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  A printed jersey dress is perfect for the family holiday this fall season. I anticipate it to be comfortable and cute when my mom insists I have an extra slice of that awesome pie. Here I am styling two looks that can work for a casual get together or a dressy dinner party. These looks can easily be worn day to night. I am excited to sport the casual look with the flared converted-skirt in the day. It will be a fun time watching the Thanksgiving parade with the family. And then quickly dress it up for the holiday dinner party in the evening. I hope these looks put a spring in your step in this chilly weather and get you excited for the holiday indulgence coming up next week.

SP- Holiday styling Thanksgiving

Ever since I set eyes on this beautiful gold watch from Timex, I knew it will be my go-to ‘it’ accessory this holiday season. This watch adds just the right amount of bling to any outfit. I love the rich gold color and the attention to detail in the design. I was surprised to discover that it is not very heavy and sits comfortably on my wrist.

Thank-you for stopping by!

Sweater Dress

Fall is upon us, and as the weather changes, so does the fashion. Boots, coats, wooly scarves – this is what gets me excited for fall! I can’t help but immediately associate the cooler weather with a warmer wardrobe, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

‘Tis the season to flaunt your dresses. One of my favorite trends for fall season is a soft and cute sweater dress. This dress acts as a great foundation piece for a layered look in colder climates. It is a classic piece especially in a solid color and can be dressed up and down with a few changes in accessories.

Still trending for Fall

STYLES TO KEEP FOR FALL X SPIt has officially started to feel like fall. As the autumn chill sets in, I am tempted to update my closet with new Fall styles. But, a new season doesn’t mean a total closet overhaul! These trends are still hot this season. Include these looks in your Fall outfits to create a still on-trend wardrobe:

Peplum: This flattering feminine style is here to stay.

Pleated Skirt: This flirty is spot-on for fall, especially in a midi-length.

Statement Necklace: This is a perfect go-to accessory to amp up a simple look.

Trapezoid Bag: The bag that’s wider than it is tall is still so right-now

Think Pink

Happy October! This month wear a little pink in your week to show your support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and brighten up a fall day. The weather here in Chicago area is still summer-like in October so I am still enjoying some of my bright colored blouses that are commonly seen in warmer weather. DSC05022 But, I am also a huge fan of wearing color in the colder months. It’s always nice to brighten up. This silk blouse is one of my favorites and I tend to wear it in all seasons (Check out these summer and winter looks). The fact that pink is trending for fall at the moment could not make me any happier. I am currently also coveting a fab pink coat like this Zara one.  Continue reading

Mint + Purple

Some days the blue denim as classic as it is, just isn’t exciting enough. Add some color to your day and bring out those colored skinnies from your closet today.

Overall obsession

Denim overalls - casual - Samosa POP

Happy Thursday! I have been completely off the grid busy with some much needed family time for the past couple weeks. My parents are visiting all the way from India. (Yay!!) But, I have missed you and I have missed blogging. It’s a beautiful day in the Chicagoland area and today I am talking about a farmer favorite. Overalls may have kicked off in a big way during the spring, but the throwback style is carrying over for the colder months. I am so happy it is here to stay for fall, only now the one-piece styles are longer and ready to be layered with our favorite jackets and knits. Overall, I am obsessed.Denim overalls - casual - closeup - Samosa POP

Overalls are inherently comfortable, so I embraced the causal feel. When dressing them down, the main goal is to keep them from looking disheveled. It is important to pay attention to the details, like swapping flats for a heeled shoe and making sure to wear a slim-fitting top. These leopard print wedges are a comfortable choice and align with the daytime feel.

Yellow Gold

Happy Monday! Brighten up your week with a pop of color in your outfit. We tend to shy away from bright hues from our work wardrobe usually. Here’s a casual daytime look that can be updated instantly by adding a tailored jacket. Add a cropped jacket in a darker shade to this outfit and create a layered fall look that can even work for a casual office setting.
