Rains, Rainbows And Some Color Splash

Monsoon is the most happening season of all. From the breezy prelude to its arrival, the gradual change in lighting, the sound settings that turn our heads towards the windows, Monsoon sure arrives in style. 😉

But let’s face it! We have no idea when our guest would choose to revisit. One fine day, when you are out wearing your favorite white gown, he might just surprise you and leave you drenched, your white gown clinging to your body with mud stains. We surely don’t want that to happen, right? So, we all nod in unison when we say, let us be monsoon ready.

Obviously, white gowns are off our list. We need clothes that keep us carefree and sometimes that let us enjoy the rains.

While rains do paint a happy picture, there are the practical difficulties. This is where we put comfort first. We are talking about the likes of capris, shorts, skirts, short dresses, denims, tops & tunics with no compromise on colors. With umpteen online sites selling everything above the Earth and below the Sun, it isn’t difficult at all to find the items I just listed. But I did not emphasize on the words ‘no compromise on colors’ for naught.

It has been around a year since I have been stalking clothes and accessories on Limeroad. They have some amazing and unique stuff that you can’t help but own. Here is one among them I bought.


I am sure that you are convinced about the style element in Limeroad. That is the second best thing. The first is, their scrapbook feature. A unique and engaging feature that also helps us know what accessory or footwear goes better with a dress.

Now that the monsoon is spreading its wings and soaring far and wide, they have introduced the monsoon themes. Here are some looks I created with the themes.


I started off with a pretty PURPLE top that caught my eyes. Considering the difficulty in washing and drying the clothes during rains, denims are the best option. Besides, there is no second opinion when it comes to comfort. The flip flops would carry you safely through any type of roads. The chic, color bomb bag would have surely caught your eyes. No compromise on colors and style. 🙂

I introduce the next look.


Red to light up the cloudy skies, green to paint the wet streets and the yellow butterfly to brighten up faces. 🙂 This dress would not only keep you comfortable but make you party ready and even if you end up in the rains, wets you in style. 😉

Closer look at the pendant

Our next look uses an equal amount of green to contrast with the stylish pink. The slippers are the highlights here.


The last look among my list is a peppy one with everything that every girl loves – florals, colors, blacks and brightness.


Every girl is her own fashionista. All we need is the variety. Now you know where to find them. Be Monsoon-ready! 🙂

Ballerinas – Answer to Every Question

Conceived as the shoes for Ballet, Ballerinas or Ballet shoes were initially used for the dance form. Even now, in the strictest sense of its meaning, that is what they are meant for. However, these beauties evolved overtime and are now used for every occasion. The most striking feature about Ballerinas are, they are light weight and made for comfort. Being a person who has tried all kinds of shoes, here is why I strongly recommend Ballerinas-

1. Comfort – Of course they were meant to be dancing shoes. You could expect a high degree of comfort while wearing them. If you pick the right size, you will know it when the beauty just clings snugly onto your feet. The comfort also varies depending on the material. In a cold weather, leather would keep you warm while in heat, cloth would keep your feet unhurt.

2. Design – Like any other products today, Ballerinas are available in a wide variety of designs. Be it classy checks, sexy animal prints, simple plain colors, polka dots, shiny and sequinned, brightly color splashed or as per your specifications. Yes. You can even renew your old ballerinas by covering them with the cloth of your choice. There are DIY videos for the same on youtube. 🙂 Trust me. It is easy. As the fashion industry has grown, so has people’s sense of fashion. Think of any design and you can easily find it, somehow.

3. Price – Ballerinas, whether meant for dancing or flaunting the beauties, start from as low as INR 250. As for the maximum, sky is the limit. For those who love shoes, Ballerinas is the best option since, they can buy more for low prices. The one below costs as low as INR 298. It is simple yet elegant. Whether you’re going for a party or to the neighboring shop, this suits all occasions. That is how they work. Buy at low prices, wear them everywhere.

4. Compatibility – The best compatible dresses to go with your Ballerinas:

  • Capris
  • Shorts
  • Casual pants, full length
  • Jeans
  • Leggings
  • Knee length skirt
  • Knee length dresses

In short, they go pretty much with every dress other than sarees, salwar kameez and bodycon maxi dresses. I heard someone say that ballerina wouldn’t be a good choice for short people. I say no. Because, they have Ballerinas with heels. Besides, tall or short, wear what you like. Whether that means a 4 inch shoe or a ballet flat. Your feet, your choice! 😉
