Sunday Basics Look of the Day : Some Bling and Some Pink

Sunday Basics: Some bling and some pink

Hey girls, I’m back with another LOTD . :)  Sunday’s the only day I have off in the week so I use it to relax as much as I can – go out, shop or window-shop, eat at a nice place and avoid the massive power cuts that have been happening here! This Sunday I decided to wear this rather bling-y t-shirt that my mom got me on her trip to Bangkok, and pair it with simple accessories. I also tried my hand at an eyeshadow look but I couldn’t take proper pics of that, sorry . :(  Here’s my full LOTD –

white tee

Jeans and a t-shirt is one basic combination that can never go wrong, and can look great if accessorized. Since the tshirt is the focus of my outfit, I kept the rest of it casual and simple. I’ve worn a pink beaded necklace, simple antique gold bangles, my favorite ring (stainless steel with a pink stone set in) and dark pink beaded earrings.

orange necklace

I sometimes like wearing a different shade of nail polish on my fingernails and toes. I kept my footwear simple, with blue flip flops, and mint nails, and bright pink fingernails (Lakme Color Crush 21). My bag is a light cotton shopping bag that’s very convenient to carry around on a casual Sunday. The dampness in the house from the rain wreaked havoc on the bag and the handles though, something I’m sad about . :(

It rained a lot later that day and I was really comfy in this, with my jeans folded up about 2 inches. Monday is the worst, so I hope I added a bit of colour to your Monday!

Top: From a mall in Bangkok :P
Jeans: Kazo
Belt: Kazo
Flip-flops: Converse
Necklace: thrifted from Commercial Street, Bangalore
Ring: Lustz (brandmile.com)
Bangles: thrifted from Dilli Haat, New Delhi
Earrings: thrifted from Janpath, New Delhi
The bag is from a quaint shop in Pondicherry that sells hand-made cloth and jute bags. I hope you liked this more casual, relaxed LOTD! ☺ xx

Nadini, you looking very pretty in this outfit. That gloss is totally working for you. :)) I love how everything is well cor-ordinated- bag, necklace and blings in the tee. Pink belt was a great pick. :)) Looking forward to next. Yayya!! and flip flopsss ..i want to see. *smuuug* I love such huge bags. You can carry your whole world in these. hihihih… I was out most of the day and was taking a chotu break. Would be back in full swing from tomorrow. Nite nite :)

Thankooo Rati :* :* :* I haven’t reviewed that one yet, I actually layered it :D the maybelline color bloom and TBS hi-shine gloss from the Christmas edition (will review it soon!) I love that belt, it adds that pop of color to any outfit!! Flipflops are just plain blue Converse, nothing special :P thought I’d give more attention to the rest of it.

I have yet to do an LOTD wearing a dress, I looove dresses and have many, so next time :D my cam will have new cells and I will take better quality pics in the next one, this was from the bf’s phone, he is my awesome photu-grapher! I love big bags too!! Esp if they aren’t too heavy-weight heehee. I also did a haul, and I still havent posted/taken pics, grr!!
Ooh where all did you go aaj?? Shopping? :smug: Goodnight :*

Great post Nandini! :)

( Now I might seem like a total stranger because even though I am a regular reader, my comments record must be in single digits). I have been mulling over the fact for a while now that I recognise you from somewhere and I think we went to the same college and have common friends! You studied in Delhi, didn’t you?

Reply

Nandini May 3, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Thanks Rini! Woah, you studied in LSR too? Awesome!! :D I’m from the batch of 2009. I’m from Delhi, but I moved to Bangalore for work in August last year. I was a silent reader too, until a few months ago :P

Rini May 4, 2012 at 11:09 am

Yep! I was in the 2008 batch, Pol Sci :) Nice to bump into you here!

I love that bag! It’s so unique and big, and looks like something that can carry your whole world. :D And great look. I like the idea of a blingy top. I think I am going to be a little adventurous and buy one for myself.
