Beautiful Jewellery and Vibrant Sarees: In Collaboration With Soignné (Part 2)

Hello everyone! Last week, I featured a beautiful saree and blouse combination, with stunning jewellery, from Soignné elegant range of clothes and accessories.  This week, I am proud to lookbook yet another gorgeous combination from Niru Keshwala’s offerings.

There are saree blouses and then there are saree blouses that stop you dead in your tracks! I absolutely adore this saree blouse with slim cut outs at the shoulders and contrasting sleeves.  It is stunning in design, vivid in colour and the organic handwoven Dhaka cotton fabric is what my ethnic fabric dreams are made of.  The versatility of this blouse is plain to see – it would go beautifully with so many different coloured sarees and would also work fabulously as a crop top in a boho inspired look.

I am wearing this saree with Soignné classic chandbali earrings and their beautifully intricate oversized kada.  This magnificent creation puts the statement in statement cuff and is made of oversized pearls, cubiczircon and kundan work that come together to make a stunning piece of jewellery in an antique gold finish.

All clothes and jewellery are from Soignné  – you can shop the range at:

Have a fabulous rest of the week and thank you so much for visiting my blog.  A big thank you to Soignné for collaborating on this post.


Sunday Stripes and Florals: In a bold Striped Skirt and Wedges

Being the responsible adult that I am, I recently decided that it was time for a thorough spring clean of my closet (ok. fine. closets). I have been meaning to confront the contents of my closets for a while but truth be told I was a bit scared of the enormity of the task before me.

I have performed the task at hand for over 48 hours now and this is what I have discovered.  Yes, of course, it goes without saying that I own too many clothes but let us not lament the obvious. As I keep telling myself, I am in my forties and multiple decades of good taste has consequences. So I have decided to concentrate on trying to be more efficient in the way I store my clothes as well as my accessibility to the various items in my closet. In the spirit of finding new solutions, I went onto Amazon to see what novel storage items I could find. The top item that I have found so far is a multiple handbag holder (purse rack) that can be hung on the back of a door. The children have no idea what I have planned for their bedroom doors next week!

The good news is that I found many clothing items that I have not worn in a very long time.  I discovered this white top and denim jacket that worked perfectly with this bold striped skirt that I recently purchased.  I have never owned a high-waisted skirt like this before but I loved the idea of it and decided it was time for a fashion first this summer.  I have accessorized it with a floral clutch as I love the way florals and strips look together – it is a tried and tested styling formula that always works for me.

I hope you enjoy this ‘lookbook’ and have a great Sunday! As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog.
