Colour Me Crazy!


So, my exams began on Tuesday and this is what I wore on Monday; a sort of welcome for the exams :P
Since I have exams every two months at NIFT (yes, that's right and you though your life was hard :P), I've started taking it as it comes and don't let them become a tension for myself :)
Isn't my outfit pretty!??
(As you can tell, I'm in a funny-jokey-crazy mood, to much studies does that to one, and I'll have you know that I can be quite a nerd sometimes!)


This beautiful ghagra-skirt is something that I bought with my mom years ago, it's always been one of my most cherished pieces.
Wearing:
Skirt and belt: thrifted, White top: thrifted, Black cropped blazer and black tights: Hong-Kong, Jewellery: thrifted, shoes: Jodhpur
This had turned out to be a very 'thrifted' outfit! I just realized that nothing in it is even remotely branded!


This is what I meant when I said I can range from one extreme to another when it comes to the colour palette of my outfits; dark hues one day and a rainbow the next! But, then that's life, isn't it???

 





These psychedelic colours always cheer me up! they remind me of sand-dunes and deserts and gorgeous Rajasthani women with their beautiful garments and chunky silver jewellery walking across them!


A special tank you to Shivani for clicking me :)

Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by,

Love
Rukman
