Color me white, color me bright

The beauty of dressing up for summers will always be, well dressing down. No heavy pea coats, jackets, mufflers and the works. Not that that doesn't work for me. But the fluidity and the feather feel that this season's fabrics are about is what I have truly loved inculcating in my style. The highlight of this outfit is the breathtaking combination of sheer and pastel. Having coveted the 'perfect' mint green shirt for a large part of this season, it was interesting how nothing at the high end stores made the cut. Either it was too green, or too minty, or not so sheer or just not the right cut. Having given up the hope of finding the perfect mint green (mint green a la Kim Kardashian blazer mint green!) it finally struck me to do it the old school way. Having a best friend who runs a boutique has its advantages. One of them includes getting your perfect sheer white shirt replicated in the perfect mint green color. I couldn't have been more pleased. The other aspects of the outfit, they speak for themselves. Be it the serene combination of the mint green shirt with my newly acquired white zara pants with the beautiful zip detailing or the element of chunky bling around the neck and the coral feathered shoes.
One of my definite favourites for Spring-Summer 2012. What are your thoughts?

    1. Thank you so much Medha! :) Where have you been? Absolutely off facebook? And I've heard that Ambika Anand comparison before but I somehow can't figure how I resemble her :D
      This is a boutique run by a friend, she usually doesn't do these but she got her tailors to do this one for me. So let me know if you wanna get in touch with her :)
