People who know me really well know that I’m an owl and love working during the night and sleeping all day long. I prefer working when everyone around me is asleep so I have no kind of disturbance at all.
Some might call me insane as most of the work happens during the day, especially when it comes to being a fashion blogger. But well, I make my own rules. Isn’t that the best part of being your own boss?
So the reason why I shared this with you is because the idea of this blog post came to me at 5 in the morning. I was leaving for Pune and had all my stuff packed and suddenly remembered about my Nishka Lulla bustier. I wasn’t carrying it with me as it was a bit loose for me, but then managed to tweak it here and there and make it to my size. I wore the bustier and stood in front of the mirror with my night shorts on and started thinking of what would go really well with it? Then it hit me, I hadn’t ever done an entire post with pastels in yet. Sure, I’ve used them somewhere or the other, but not together and I’d always wanted to try that.
And then I picked up my pastel skirt and wore it along with the bustier and it was like magic. They went so well with each other and I knew that I had to wear it soon (Which I did in Pune, for a brunch).
But while trying it on I thought there was something missing and it was my net long jacket/cape. Along with that I took the next step and added some blue and sliver Bohemian jewelry to the outfit and I was ready.
Since I’ve tanned a lot this summer the dusky look went really well with the pastel colors and looked phenomenal. I know self praising isn’t a very good thing, but I really enjoyed wearing this.
Styling Tip: Pastels look amazing on dusky sink as well. People who were always skeptical about it do not worry. Do try it and feel as good as I did in it.
