Wine + Mint

I felt like a princess in this gorgeous lehenga from none other than India Boulevard. As usual, the service was excellent, where sizing and the look and feel ended up being perfect the day that it shipped and I tried it on (FYI, this was a day before my flight to Tampa for a wedding; I'll never learn). Luckily, IB came to the rescue with quick communication and turnaround re: shipping date and expectations.

I didn't put my own spin or customization on this - largely because of the time factor - but also because... it's pretty perfect already. The deep magenta and mint are beautifully complemented with the light pink undertones in the border. The pearl detailing was also a huge selling point, inspiring me to pair the outfit with jewelry from my own Mehndi which includes pearls and deep purple (which kind of happened to be in the same color family as the blouse!)

Jumpin' into Summer

I'm in love with this TOBI jumpsuit. It's super flowy, and its wideleg cut is flattering. Chunky heels helped me give the look some height since I'm super short.

OH - and it's comfy enough to slip the straps off for easy bathroom trips. Come on, we're all thinking about it. Jumpsuits and rompers always need to come with a handy dandy plan for when you need to take that break after downing a lot of H2O to beat the summer heat.  They've got this in a rusty orange, too, which is gorg and can be found along with tons of other dresses at https://tobi.com!

Sidenote, it's a miracle I got Mr. Anup to snag some pics of me in this fabulous jumpsuit. Thanks, hubby ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Olive Tobi Shift Dress

As I frantically spray dry shampoo in my hair, while rolling through my work e-mail inbox, making sure my makeup is covering stress zits, I'm tasked with figuring out what to wear within a 2 minute timeline. This Tobi Swoop In Shift Dress is one piece that solves that problem.

The best thing about a shift dress = comfort, ease, and instantly flattering. I'm in love with the neutral color, the fact he can be dressed up or down, and that the V neckline allows for either a show-stopping necklace or statement earrings. Pairing the dress with these Steve Madden ankle boots gives some character while remaining playful and casual for my Friday at work.

You can shop this dress for ONLY $31 in 5 gorgeous neutrals: Black, Ivory, Navy, Olive, Rose!

I decided to wear a simple cami underneath because I needed some extra coverage in that oh-so-busty area of mine. #REALTALK
