Red sun rising

Apart from college assignments being done last minute, lectures beginning before my sleep cycle ends and travelling via public transport in the monsoons; you know what else is tough? A dress code. For the lucky ones who aren't in this phase of their lives or go to a dress-code free *you lucky thing!* college; us remaining mortals have a tough task to endure. Due to that, my daily outfits has to include jeans, leggings, stockings and maxis. I've grown so used to blue denim jeans over the years so since the time I've started style blogging, I've tried out a pair of chinos and tossed on a maxi skirt on those days when my jeans just wouldn't cut it.
This was one of those days.
It had been raining madly since morning and I couldn't bare the thought of sitting in class with soaking wet jeans the entire day. Plus, I needed something vibrant to lift me up during this gloomy weather. 

Black t-shirt - Fcuk (London), Red trousers - Moto, Topshop (London), Black and gold glitter tote - Glamour (London) + self modified, Bow ballet flats - Local boutique (Bandra), Bow hairband - Accessorize, On my eyes - Maybelline Eyestudio Allure eyeliner & Maybelline Colossal Kajal, On my nails - Bourjois 'Bleu voilet' (London)

And well, what do you know! By afternoon, the grey sky was gone and the sun was peeking out of the grey clouds! Maybe, just maybe, it was the red pants. They are crazy comfy because of the loose-ish cargo style of the pants and the shade is such a bright crimson.

So tomorrow *for all of us in India* is a little mid-week break because it's Independence day! A salute goes out to a beautiful country full of colours, warmth and vibrancy and the people who keep our nation safe and sound.
Have a great week ahead dolls!
