Shirtdress for mid-week monsoons!

Hey all u lovely people!!!
It's the middle of the week already.......n it's the time when I generally feel the most lazy, just waiting for the week to end! But not so today......coz I've taken an impromptu leave from office tomorrow & what with Eid holiday on Friday, it's going to be 2 nice, long & lazy holidays for me!!! :))
Also, the farewell bursts of the monsoon clouds are keeping the weather cool & fresh, which in turn, keeps people's temperaments cool & cheerful!!!
So, here I am with a middle of the week outfit post. Generally, the Formal/Semi-formal dress code at office bugs me no end, which is why most days, I end up trudging to office in Indianwear (since I don't like wearing formal trousers all that much!)........but sometimes, I wake up in the morning (like today), all excited about dressing up for office! The pix that follow were clicked in the midst of lots of bewildered on-lookers, who couldn't decide whether I was someone posing for a professional shoot (though nobody shoots professionally using a digital camera & a short-not-so-slim model!) or just a crazy self-obsessed girl who had nothing better to do this afternoon!!!

I have this weird affinity for Shirtdresses.........& this pastel pink cotton one is one of my fav picks from my last Mumbai trip......

I specially like the tucks on the back & the belt at the empire line......This shirtdress, paired with slim-fit formal trousers makes for a formal look with a laid-back feel to it. But, of course, this shirtdress can also be worn more casually with leggings or knee-length shorts for a shopping spree or coffee with friends!

Shirtdress: Hill Road, Bandra, Mumbai
Bangles: New Market, Kolkata
Pearl studs: Hyderabad

This is one of the very few formal trousers I have in my wardrobe..........I like this one for its cut, fit & the nice button detailing on the back of the legs.

Trousers: Wills Lifestyle, Kolkata

This neckpiece was love at first sight! The intricate motif & the quirky arrangement of the discs make this a versatile piece that can be worn both formally & casually!

Neckpiece: Platinum Mall, Bangkok

What would I have done without these shoes???? These are my saviors.....whenever in doubt, I slip on this pair & am raring to go!!! The cutwork pattern & the peeptoe look made this black pair a must-have for me!!! In fact, I love the way my bright nails contrast with the black, making sure that people don't overlook even my  feet! :)

Shoes: Tresmode, Bandra, Mumbai

Now am gearing up for the next 2 lovely days of waking up late......watching fav DVDs back to back........hanging out with friends........catching up on lots of reading...........& of course, keeping you guys updated on the fashion front!!!

  1. I love this look!! Very very nice, from the shirt dress, to those amazing trousers- I really must start going to Lifestyle once again, but I LOVE that necklace, it's stunning. Those shoes are great too, basic ballet flats are a total lifesaver!

  2. Thanx a ton dearie!!! I think nobody does formal trousers the way Wills Lifestyle does them.....n I SOOO agree about the neckpiece n flats.....those two are fav pieces from my wardrobe! :)
