December always holds a special place for me, and I always miss home around this time. In Delhi, every shop, house and building is lit up with fairylights. There’s a chill in the air, and I don’t mean the 25 degrees people here consider as cold – it’s actually 13 and below. Time to bring out all those gorgeous coats and jackets and boots. When hot chocolate or a glass of wine pair perfectly with the weather outside. When your cat loves to snuggle or curl up at your feet as you watch a great movie.
This city though, lacks that atmosphere, so I try to make the most of it by ensuring I’m as extra as possible when it comes to my wardrobe, even if I can’t bring winter here! ‘Tis the season for glitter, sparkle, lots of wine and fruit cake and tons of shopping.
Pleated skirts are having a moment, and I’ve always loved them, right from when I did this Spring look to now when I found this gorgeous gold pleated Zara skirt.
I paired it with this adorable cat collar buttondown that’s become one of many variants of white shirts hanging in my closet. I really can’t get enough of white shirts even if I end up buying so many.
I wasn’t in a very heels mood on that day. It was a beautiful evening and we were walking around Lavelle Road looking for the perfect place to shoot, so I thought I’d wear my Adidas Superstars. Sneakers are supposed to comfy, right? Strangely enough, they killed my feet so in reality, I was going nuts from the pain through each shot. Not a big fan of the rounded toe since I tend to have long feet, but they do look good! Oh, the things we do for fashion.
This outfit makes me happy. It reminds me of all the joy and sparkle that this season’s all about, and about how no matter how dark things get, there usually is a way out. I was grinning and laughing with my photographer friends through that horrible shoe pain, and it made me realize how much we tend to under-appreciate the little things.
I love this little area that’s actually right in the middle of it all, yet tucked away. It’s the small street right opposite the Biere Club, and the Good Earth cafe’s located here too.
