Hi guys wish all of my Indian readers a very happy Independence Day! Well, the moment you will be reading this, I will be out for a movie and a lunch date afterwards. Hehe 😊 Okay, let me tell ya, today's post is bit different than what I usually talk about here! So, let's talk about it!

For today, I created this look to celebrate 15th August! I had this idea stuck in my mind since I have got back in Kolkata(India)! I have caught up with thousands of things that I need to organise and put together in the blog, but it’s a mess right now, and so need time! To give you a bit more life update, I have been working on something exciting on my city Kolkata (Calcutta) and ethnic/Indian wears lately! So guys keep an eye out on my blog and comment below to let me know if you would like me to make this type of contents more!

Okay, said enough, let’s get back into my outfits details and also sharing some other tips on how you can create a tricolour to celebrate this day!
For my look, I took a white Kurti that has a little green embroidery work around the chest, but let’s not notice that for now, since that’s totally irrelevant for today’s look! Well, I couldn’t find any better piece than this so please ignore the embroidery! The product length felt great and the cotton fabric is nice too! Good to spend the day wearing it, comfy and relaxing!
To create the tricolour I have added a green coloured leggings and an orange hued dupatta, yes you that right, it’s hued orange not saffron! Saffron seemed hard to find one out hence orange! And it looks great and turned out to look saffron, what else could have been as great as an orange! And I finally have got my tricolour!
To finish off the look, I have added some silver jewellery and a pair of brown flats matching with my crossbody bag!

Tips to create tricolour few other ways are as follows :

• If you’re more a skirt person than Kurti, you can grab a green skirt and pair with a white blouse and saffron/orange bag to have the tricolour!

• If you would like to kept western, a green denim/ trouser/ culottes with a white blouse will cool with a saffron scarf on neck or a bandana will be a perfect put together and will look more elegant and chic.

• If you’re not that kind of girl who loves playing with tricolour on clothes, try out the colours with bangles, or on your lips (search on Google for lips ideas), on your eyes or just simply draw the tricolour on your cheek!

So, that’s it for today! Hope you guys find it helpful and celebrating 15th August with these colours! Thank you so much to all of you for stopping by! I hope you guys have a wonderful day! See ya on next post!

summer casuals : 3 striped looks

summer casuals : 3 striped looks , summer-stripe , travelhues by babita sentravelhues
Hi good morning my friends! When it comes to stripes, I find everything fine and just perfect! Stripes are clean, minimal and so versatile enough not to get bored of the pattern over time. How timeless does this particular pattern sound? I love anything stripped! I can wear it all year round!
I thought to share few of my striped pieces, which are my most worn so far since past two months probably!
This navy blue striped t-shirt is best among all with a straight hemline! Such a classic timeless piece. I love that classic neckline with those sporty short sleeves. The length is exceptionally quite long compared to other tees. I love the cotton spandex fabric, it felt stretchy and superior soft.
I have paired it with one of my blue denim. I took a pair of my black heels (most most worn!) and black crossbody bag, as you guys already know about this bag you have read my previous post!

Okay! Beside this look, I’m sharing two more striped tops, that I love wearing a lot!

The black and white striped fitted knit top with that stylish stand collar goes super perfect to style in autumn honestly! But I worn it already so thought to speak a bit about it here. I just love it! It fitted me perfectly and it felt great against the skin! I love that design around the chest and short sleeves! Not really bad to style year round if you love a little black! I braided my hair to give it a different look and added a black sun/ baseball cap (on my hand in the below picture though)!

And lastly comes the maroon and black striped full sleeved thin sweater! Yea, you read it right! That’s a sweater! I worn it a lot and still seem not to get that enough! What a lovely piece! True to colour! Fitting is a bit loose on me though, but the fabric felt nice! I love it!

Guys do please let me know what particular design or pattern you worn the most this year? What do you love/prefer, solids or patterns? Well, I think I love both equally! Both are great to go comfy and chic! Though solid sounds more versatile(especially white and black)!

Thank you so much you all! Hope you like it & have a great start of your week!!! Happy Monday ya!

forever 21 black sling bag

Can anyone tell me how did August got here already? It works like a reminder that the festival isn’t far!
Okay! I have received quite a few compliments on this bag on my Facebook and Instagram, so here you have this post! I mean, yay, I finally stopped by today with this black sling bag from forever 21!
Let me tell yay, the moment I eyed this bag, I so crazily fell in love in no time that I bought two almost with same features (bit different in design though, will come up with that later).
I especially fell for that golden metallic hoop! Oh how gorgeous does it look! It enables you to carry as handbag. The long black sling strap is detachable and adjustable, which makes the bag perfect for any party or event wear! Such an all in one package! Haha 😆
And the colour black makes it versatile, and for that reason I have been wearing it way too much! Yay, why not? If you buy a piece that you can’t style and restyle multiple times, it’s not a worth purchase!

It has a magnetic button closer, no zip feature, easy to go and insert or grab your stuffs real quick. Okay, on another note, truth be told, if you become unmindful of how you keep the bag, any tiny stuffs could be lost! Haha, that’s true! I though hardly carry any tiny stuffs or something like that, so it’s not a problem on that way! 😊
For anyone who loves this metallic golden hoop design, forever 21 has launched few more new designs with this hoop function! Go, check them ‘em out, see if you find any! Just couldn't find more better time than today to share this product review!

Thank you so much guys for stopping by! Hope you like it!! Have a happy Wednesday you all!
