bottled bohemia

a constant blur of people and lights, bombay is an insomniac. ever bustling, the city knows no pause button but is fuelled by it's own dynamic energy. a concrete jungle where only the fittest contenders survive, it's where dreams are constructed and demolished every hour of the day.

sometimes, when i start to feel like a gerbil on a wheel, i escape not to a spa, but to the sea and the stores. and as thrilling as retail therapy may be for a girl, there's nothing quite as refreshing as the wind in my hair, the salt on my lips and the lashing of the tide against the rocks. 
i couldn't think of a more perfect outfit for my afternoon by the shore - a bright, billowy maxi that flutters in the breeze with cool hints of turqoise that symbolize the quiet calm of the arabian sea. neptune, i hope i did you proud. 

{ skirt : hill road, t-shirt : fashion street, jacket : bought in london, shoes : random boutique, bag : bought in london, necklace : gift from naaz, embellished bangles : accessorize, turquoise bangle : colaba, watch : crawford market, sunnies : prada minimal baroque }

how do you relax at the end of a stressful week? share your ideas in the comments section.

bisou bisou,

I absolutely heart that red skirt. And those introductory lines about the city, couldn't be more true.

I think you meant you like to escape to sea and the shore, not the stores° maybe you can escape retail therapy but it never escapes you° x

Anushka, you look so pretty! Love the skirt and shoes but most of all that bandhani that's sitting on the beach with your accessories is out of this world! Is that a saari or dupatta?

Came here from HHC.

Kanan : Aw thanks so much! I actually have no idea what it is! I was near a fishing village and it was on the ground along with all those baskets! :)
