A collaboration with Smrithi Rao- Blogger and Photographer. She photographs and writes feature stories on people who interest her. It’s quite a read, I must say. I was thrilled when she approached me for this shoot, after a few mails and phone calls we got along on a Sunday morning to carry out this shoot. We planned to shoot on the streets of Bangalore hence, keeping the dressing very casual very laid-back and very me. Smrthi asked me a few questions on beauty, style and personal life which you can read here.
One of the questions that she asked me was- How do you describe your sense of style and have you seen it evolve? Well, I’ve realized over the years that I do not like sticking up with one particular style. Of course, I do prefer certain styles over the other but that doesn’t stop me from trying out the other ways of dress up. Fashion and Styling, for me, is more about expanding self-imposed boundaries, breaking stereotypes and stepping out of my comfort zone. I try it all- You might see me stacked up in gypsy jewelries, you might spot me dressed up in pencil skirts and sleek ponytails and you might see my playing it cool with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a beanie. All the three styles are very different from each other and give out a very different vibe from one another. But, for me, that’s the whole point of dressing up.
Also, about the outfit- I’m wearing an Over-sized shirt with a pair of Boyfriend jeans, both the pieces are my absolute favorites, I love them way too much because they are so comfortable and so airy. Perfect for those lazy days where you would love to lounge at home, sleep a little, watch movies and read books but you’ve got to get up and work instead. The feeling of home and comfort all around you! *sigh* I could live my life in them.
