When I turned 21, I was beyond thrilled to embrace the freedom that awaited me. It wasn’t just about being able to make your own decisions, but because I started making my own moolah from a year before that, I felt that financial independence which was amiss among-st my peer group & hence, felt a little pride circling my mind. Lucky for me, the work just increased from there on and with just a few hiccups here and there, I was on my way to becoming, what is now most annoyingly referred to as “Girl Boss”. Having started a blog when no one could fathom the idea of having one, let alone making money out of it, I was drowning in judgemental glances as well as some praises. It was in no means a rosy ride but I am grateful & will be forever thankful for that moment when I decided to give this a shot! Never had I ever thought that this would turn into a full time profession and that I was going to a part of that first batch of people who derived a profession merely with the aide of technology’s favorite child, the Internet! Now at 25, I feel like maybe, I missed out on taking my life a little easy. Cherishing my early 20’s by just travelling & exploring. Not that my job doesn’t provide me enough opportunities to do that, but a job is a job at the end of the day. It comes with responsibilities, deadlines and a bucket load of stress. So whether you’re reporting to a boss or you are your own boss, if you want to take that path to success, hard work is the only route to take, which sometimes means compromising on the other aspects of life. Do I regret any of these amazing years? Not a second. Do I wish to slow it down a little and cherish the important events in my life ? Every second! So for all those of you who are reading this at 21, make some changes now or else you’ll end up writing a blog post about it 4 years later! And for those of you who are in the same boat as me, it’s kind of now or never. 

Let’s leave my personal chaos aside and talk about this outfit. This look for me represented everything Spring & Summer. The colours, the print and the location we found to match the vibe. I love layering but I find that a lot of people struggling to understand why and how one could tackle this fashion hack during the scorching summer months. The trick is to pick light & easy fabrics, that will let your skin breathe! This gorgeous white cotton cropped top from Only, is as light as a feather. Perfect for summer, you could style this in one too many ways. For this look, I decided to pair it with these jogger style pants. The silhouette might look casual but the print amps up it’s style quotient. Because the ensemble looked incomplete to me, I added this navy, linen vest to streamline it all. Another versatile piece, you could layer this with your favourite shift or maxi dress or even with a causal tee and shorts look. To finish it all off, this contrasting salmon coloured, structured bag was the ideal companion. A statement fuchsia pout & big sunglasses is all I needed to slay the day! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and while you plan your holidays, make sure to keep these simple style tips in mind to go from the girl next door to the hidden fashion blogger in you.
