Paper bag waist is the in thing at the moment and i always love khaki, i think i have said in the past that i almost treat it as a neutral so when the two met it was love at first sight for me. No second thoughts and these trousers were bought. I wore them to spin around london town a few weeks back soaking in the flower decorations with a girlfriend. We first brunched at Dalloway terrace which i totally recommend for the ambience and photo opportunities and then just went around central London

I wore the khaki trousers with white top, red socks and white converse. My outfit was a total match with the colours of the flower swing decoration at covent garden, hehe! 
Although i hadn't thought of wearing the khaki with white i was quite surprised at how good it looked with white. Does that happen to you colours you didn't think will work together actually turn out to be stunning.

Khaki paper bag waist trousers on a spring day in London

Finding the right dress is an arduous task which leaves even the most patient of people frustrated and wanting to scream at the top of their lungs. No matter what you look at in-store, there is almost always something about it which just isn’t quite right. It’s either too long or too short, some don’t fit the body shape, and the others are just plain ugly. The quest for the perfect everyday summer dress is something which stumps even the savvy of shoppers each year, but it doesn’t need to be so difficult!

tips on picking the perfect summer dress, summer dress, polka dots, polka dots trend, red and pink, polka dot dress, indian blogger, uk blog, london blogger, polka dot maxi dress,


When you do eventually find something which ticks all of the boxes in terms of size, shape, and style, you find out that it’s either far too expensive for you or that it’s not very summer-friendly (who wants to thick non breathable fabrics in summer?!). 
As mentioned in my post on why moving is genius for your wardrobe, i do need some summer dresses in my wardrobe so i have been looking and hence this post.  Sharing my thoughts and tips on how to find the perfect summer dress so you avoid some of the frustration which comes with it. 

1. Things to Consider

Fabric – the most obvious factor when picking a summer dress is its fabric. You want to pick something which is light, will keep you cool, and will feel nice against your skin in the hot weather. Light cotton is always a good shout, but there are any other fabrics which are just as good. Also, ensure that it is a fabricwhich can easily be washed (unless you don’t care about dry cleaning) and that doesn’t wrinkle too easily.
Comfort – in summer, comfort is key. Choose a dress which you are going to love to wear, which will both be physically comfortable and something you feel comfortable wearing. Consider how often your dress may require adjusting or how hard it will be to get on. If there are straps as far as the eye can see, perhaps it’s not your best bet.
Pattern & Colour – finally, pick a pattern which looks light and airy, and which you like. It is summer, after all. Get a dress which isn’t too bold and won’t make people stare for all the wrong reasons. In summer, subtle patterns and light colours work best. Light colours do not absorb heat as much as darker colours, helping you to stay cooler for longer. Colours which can easily be paired with neutral colours are always a great shout, too.

2. Where to Buy

Thanks to the internet, you are no longer restricted to buying from your local stores – great news for those of you who live miles away from human civilisation! There are so many websites where you can pick up clothes now, and it’s not only big companies which are your only choice.
With the advent of eCommerce and platforms such as Shopify, designers and creative people from all over the world are designing and selling their wares online, which are often much cheaper and of a much higher quality than many contemporary name brands. There’s no shame in buying second-hand, either – there is many a gem to be found on websites such as eBay, where fashion-conscious women from all over the world sell their pre-loved garments.
If you shiver at the idea of wearing another lady’s used clothes, websites such as Asos, Topshop, River Island are much-loved internet brands which stock a huge line of high-quality clothing at competitive prices. There are a lot of summer dresses options out there, such as this 2018 summer dress collection, and you are sure to find something here, if nowhere else! Where to buy is largely a question you need to ask yourself, as it really depends on you as an individual, what you like to wear, and where you like your clothes to come from.

3. Get Something Built to Last

The saying goes that if you buy cheap, you buy twice. I am not telling you to go out and drop hundreds of pounds on a new dress (although, some of you don’t need to be told to do that…), but by being switched on and conscious about where you are buying your dress from, you can get something which will last for many summers to come.

If you take proper care of a good-quality dress, there is no reason why it isn’t one that can feature in your wardrobe for the next five-to-ten years. Again, this really depends on the individual: some of us don’t like to wear the same dress more than a few times before retiring it to the nearest charity shop or getting rid of it online.

At last i would just say although buying a summer dress can be so sometimes difficult, it’s obviously not rocket science, and it is not something which you should be over-complicating either. Opt for simple, light and stylish garments that are of a decent quality and you will have yourself a dress which will stand the test of time and leave you turning heads all summer long.

self help, its ok to not have a particular schedule, cater to flow, indian blogger, london blog, uk blog, liberty flower display, liberty london

I am relieved because i no longer run for a particular schedule but i cater to my own flow. Its self help. That said, I dont think i have talked here on the blog about my daily schedule. I don’t have a 9-5 or fixed time job and courtsey travels and priorities in personal life my schedule has been quite eratic for the last year or so. Today i wake up not before 9 am and then the day flows. There are also days where i haven’t got anything done by 12 pm because i have woken at 11.55 am whereas most of the world is done with half their daily chores. Was i upset with such a schedule, well yes i was. Upset i think is a lesser word to describe my state. I tried to change i tried quite hard to get to the worlds schedule of waking up between 6-8, meditate or excerice then get ready and have breakfast before 9 then work then lunch between 12-2 and so on and on. I did succeed a few days but it didn’t become my schedule because my lifestyle is different my priorities are different. Reality is everyone’s home life, and work situation is unique, even though for some the schedules go with the so called general its not literally the same for anyone. Being unhappy with it not being one with the worlds standard neither helped me change it nor did favours to my well being. Till i accepted its ok, to have a different flow. Whatever that is. Whether you want to work out at 8 am or 8pm its fine. whether you write at 12 am or 12 pm its fine. Some people are morning people and some night. Not everybodys productivity peaks in the am. Not everybody’s life priorities lets them peak in the am. And resenting/ not catering to that requirement of natural flow does nothing. So why not go with the natural flow of whats happening in your life instead of fighting it. By doing so things are easier and less stressful. Ignoring the proper times for certain tasks, and instead, doing them at a time that feels good to us is also a method to live well. A secret actually.

Its 3.04 am on the dot as i finish writing this post, it doesn’t bother me that its almost morning and that i should have instead written the post at 3.04 pm during the day. I feel strongly about the uniqueness of every individual and their lives and accepting that and this post is a small introduction to it. More coming up, till then cater to your flow its therapeutic.

Presenting to you the benefits of changing houses and these pictures of spring in London but first I want to apologize for the inconsistency and the lack of posts here on Thestyletune. We were moving houses and to tell you honestly i have never been a fan of that. The last months have been very overwhelming with the packing unpacking and then setting up the new place. Its two and a half times the size of our old home which has meant a whole lot of new stuff to be bought, refurbished and diy. Its been entirely consuming and has taken its toll on me both emotionally and physically. Whilst we still are putting in the work to set it up i have come to the realization that moving houses is genius atleast for your wardrobe. Here's why

  1. An opportunity to do a total declutter. Omg incredible. Even though i have made donating / giving to family and friends pieces from my wardrobe a habit over the last year. Moving out made me declutter like no other. It helped me easily give away things that i was holding on to. A change in place sort of cut the emotional element that is hard to break. 
  2. An opportunity to donate / give to family and friends. This is an extension of the first point. I was able to donate / give 2 bags of clothes 1 bag of shoes 2 bags of bags. I always feel great when i donate / give and the people who get the stuff feel great as well. My cousins are super happy because all the stuff they get is of great quality and they don’t have to shop haha!
  3. A new way of organization. The new place called for a new setting for my wardrobe and that meant a new and improved way to organize it. Now my wardrobe is organized as per wearability and season as compared to my last wardrobe which was set as per items of a similar kind kept together. A new organization style adds freshness even if the pieces are old and the same. 
  4. An opportunity to identify the shortcomings of the wardrobe. Well after you declutter and give away you can see the gaps. In my wardrobe i see i need a few summer dresses and going out tops.

Comparing ourselves or our lives to someone elses is the most ridiculous of things because it breaks the underlying rule of comparison i.e homogeneity. We are all unique and so are our lives and situations. There are not even two people in the world with the same body, mind, soul, upbringing, family, DNA, experiences, work, passions, etc etc. So why even bother comparing. It should not be even said that comparison kills all. Takes happiness away and puts frustration in its place.

Luckily for me i have not got into its trap. Well i wouldn’t say i have never compared myself to anyone but i haven’t been in that state for much time and have been able to zap myself out of it. What helps me? well here they are.

  1. Understand and consider it 100% true that we do not really know the struggles of other people. So if you find someone with the kind of life that fascinates you remember they have their own struggles and you don’t know how bad they are. There is a big chance that after you learn about the struggle you find your life better off. And you would rather choose your own life than the ‘fascinating life’ full of those struggles. 
  2. Don’t believe anything that you see on social media because people no matter how real they keep it post edited filtered versions of their life. You see those crazy travel pictures in Santorini and wish ah how good is her life. I wish i got to wear what she is wearing and travel to such stunning locales and also get a picture or two. But what you don’t know and see is that for those images one has to be waking up early even on what is supposed to be a holiday, get ready and leave with a few outfits to shoot in a bag ( its heavy). Without having breakfast. Fighting with your partner even, because he is not happy that you turn holidays into work. 
  3. We often are comparing our failures to peoples success. Highlight to back reel. Absurd isn’t it. 
  4. Keep the focus of your life on your self. So when you think, think about what you want to do, what life you want to live, what truly makes you happy, what keeps you inspired, etc. Do not take the focus on what others are doing with their lives. 
  5. Be grateful for the things and people you have in your life. The constant urge for better and better creates restlessness and triggers comparison. Being grateful will always keep you content and happy with what you have and give you inner peace. 
  6. There is nothing called universal perfect. Perfection is what we think is perfect and it does not hold for everyone. So if you really want to look at it you are a perfect person physically, mentally, emotionally. You have the perfect life, family, career, everything because there is no perfect in the world.
  7. All of us are unique with unique bodies, experiences and thoughts so be confident of yourself. Your uniqueness is your USP! Comparison will make you small, insecure and vulnerable and that is the energy that you will radiate. What a shame isn’t it. Be confident of your unique self and path and remember what is meant for your greatest good will never skip you. 
  8. Accept yourself. The most common comparison women do is comparing their beauty and their body with someone else’s. Remember what i said in point 6. You are just as beautiful and your body just as great as you think it is. In my teenage and most of my 20s i hated my belly fat. My definition of beauty was a girl with a thin waist and i looked at the tiniest waists of models and actreses and that made me feel even worse. So realization came and i accepted my body and trust me it has been the greatest stress relievers of my life. Lol even when i struggled in my mind with my belly fat there were people who told me my body was perfect to them, so you get my point!! If you feel you want to have a certain kind of a body first see the reason you want it. Is it in comparison to someone which should be shunned straight away or for positive reasons like for your health, strength etc.
  9. The only person you should compare yourself is with the person you were yesterday. So work on your shortcomings, work on the dream life, work on your goals with the aim of out performing your yesterday self and no one else. 
  10. Get inspired but don’t compare. Well there is a very thin line between the two. Often we start with inspiration but move to comparison. Just to spell out the difference inspiration motivates and leads you to pursue your goals in a healthy and positive way whereas comparison demotivates and even though sometimes makes us to pursue goals, does so in a negative way. You never feel content and happy with neither the process nor the achievement. 
  11. Surround yourself with people who clap at your success, inspire you, lift you higher, make you happy and see the greatness in you even when you don’t see it. They add to your well being and indirectly also prevent you from indulging in negative activities like comparison.
