Clothing haul!

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of shopping for clothes, also because I’m leaving for Hajj in a matter of two weeks, and I need a couple of staple pieces to take with me. Amidst all of that, I have also been buying some extra clothing pieces to wear when I get back because… well, because I just can’t help myself! I used to shop a LOT at Odel but of late I have been going to Cotton Collection a hell of a lot as well my other favourite store Mondy. So I’ll be showing you guys some of the clothing items I got 😀

Pants, pants, pants and pants!
Pants, pants, pants and pants!

I can’t help myself when I come across cotton pants. I got four of the same type in different colours simply because they are too soft and comfortable when worn. They are also a loose fit so I will be taking these with me to Saudi. Here’s a closer look: (oh please don’t mind the crease!)

I got these pants from Cotton Collection for just about Rs. 1,600 each which I think is a really good price for something that’s super soft, comfortable and easy on the eyes.

I love shopping at Mondy simply because they have a good understanding of body types and sizes unlike some of the other stores. Their clothes always fits so well on me and looks just as great which is why I continue going there. Here’s a look at what I got from there:

I don’t own anything in this shade so I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. Plus, I did purchase two palazzo pants some time back and I thought this would really go well with one of them. It’s got cute frill detail on the shoulders, a little pocket highlighted with a black rim and more detail on the back that you can pull back and tie into a bow. It’s unfortunately got like the longest ever sleeves but I plan to fold them over a couple of times when wearing them so that it does not look sloppy on me. This retails for about Rs. 2,000-2,600.

The one of the right is another I got from Mondy whilst the left and one in the middle are gifts from my mum who took a trip to India a few weeks ago and bought them at my favourite store – Global Desi. All three have unique prints on them which I love and can be worn for different ocassions. I do not know how much the tops from India retail for but the blue and white from Mondy retails between Rs. 1,800-2,400.

So what’d you think? 🙂

Saturday night out look

My look

With Japanese on the menu for our Saturday night out, I decided to keep my look minimalistic. 

My knee length black and white kurta was something I purchased a while back from India but had only worn it on a few occasions. I paired it with a black pair of leggings and chiffon shawl. It’s got pretty bead work down the front as can be see in the picture above.  The sleeves have a bit of red and bit morw bead work that give it an interesting look. On my feet are a casual pair of black kitten heels I got as a gift.

Happy Sunday all! 🙂

It’s black and white

People tend to dress up a little bit in ol’ Little England. I may have come to the town in an old pair of jeans and a drab kurta but I changed things up for the latter part of the day when we decided to visit a few places.

My look

I went with a chic black and white look for the evening with my outfit. This is me wearing a pair of chappals I scored from a street bazaar in India during one of my many trips there, black leggings, a black and white ethnic kurta and black shawl from India as well. The leggings are from Westside and the kurta is from one of my favourite stores, Global Desi.

The Nuwara Eliya town ain’t that big so there’s only a few places you can visit. We headed to the famous Grand Hotel for a snack and were quite surprised to find a tlounge by Dilmah on the outside veranda.

Urban setup

The menu is very much similar to that of the tlounge located at Chatham Street in Fort, Colombo 1 and so we sat down to grilled chicken sandwiches and yummilicious flavoured cups of warm tea.
