Summer Style: The Right Pair of Shorts

Given that I'm such a fussy person when it comes to clothes, it has always been so difficult for me to find the right pair of shorts...So one fine day I just tried the classic method and it totally worked! I just cut my trusted pair of denims from Westside to the desired length, got the ends hemmed and have been a happy person since! (Westside in my opinion boasts of the most well-fitted collection of denims for different sizes.)

Now speaking of tops, I don't wear ones without sleeves and dislike how the ones with cap or half sleeves look on me. Can you imagine my plight in summer? Recently though I've made a conscious effort to stop buying tops that would require a cover up. I've realized that the 3/4th length works well for me and if the fabric is a light one it's totally do-able for summer. I'll be honest, I don't understand prints and the rules of wearing them very well. But when I tried on this hounds-tooth print top it felt like it worked for me so I picked it up. Simple.

Read about my other casual top story here:

Summer's already kicked-in big time in Pune and I wore this outfit for an evening of chilling with friends (without feeling the least bit conscious). I completed my look with these gladiator flats from Westside that I'm ridiculously in love with. Since it was just catching up with friends I opted for this New Look compact sling that's enough to hold my essentials. However, if I had some work that required me to carry my laptop along, I'd choose this Paris theme bag. More of a travel bag than a laptop one, I prefer carrying this cuz then it's spacious enough to put everything into it. As for the accessories I've got my usual couple of midi rings and a hand harness to finish the look. And of course, sunglasses to go!

And this one's another lengthy post. Sigh. Wish you all a very happy summer! :)

P.S. A simple rule I always follow is to wear a loose top if I'm wearing fitted shorts or a fitted top if I'm doing a flowy maxi skirt.

- Love, M!
