A Sunny Day


Hello!!!
I'm just a little over-exited because I'm saying hello after so many days :)
So, I wore this pretty floral day-dress to school the other day; I picked it up from my favorite flea market in New Delhi. All it needed was a little 'nip and tuck' and a belt and voila! it fit me perfectly (or so I would like to believe)!


There's only one thing I like more than floral prints; floral print dresses cinched at the waist! and this dress ticked all the boxes. The tea-length hemline gave it a very vintage feel and made it very comfortable to prance around the streets of Delhi in!
Wearing:
Dress: thrifted, belt: Bangalore, flats: Charlotte Russe, black cotton pullover: Bangkok


Even though the skirt of the dress is 'pouffy' enough, it kind of made me feel like a dainty housewife from the 50's; something like the picture I found below (notice the thin belt at the waist and the classic Mary-janes)

 I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,

Love
