Holiday Lookbook - Day | - Old School Blogger. Not an influencer.

Holiday Lookbook - Day

I am in attending the TxSCC  this weekend and am beyond excited to meet all the bloggers and interact with them in person. While I have met my fair share of bloggers already in the past year, this will be my first time attending such a formal 'Blogging Forum'. I will definitely let you all know how it went ... 

In the meantime let me indulge you in my Holiday Lookbook. Earlier this year, I stopped by Dubai to visit my friend - Anita (aka Myraa Ahuja). Everyone, probably, already knows her, thanks to the 2 fabulous photo shoots she pampered me with here and here.   

These are few of the looks I donned during the day ...
Look 1
Top - Gap [10']; Leggings - Puma [09'] 
Pashmina Scarf - Gift [Mom]; Ballet Flats - Juicy Couture [07']

Look 2
Tee - Urban Outfitters [10'] ; 3/4 Denims - Gap [10']
Booties - Dolce Vita [10']

Look 3
Top - Urban Outfitters [10']; Skinny Jeans - Miss Sixty [08']
Flats - Tory Burch [10']

Look 4
Top - Urban Outfitters [10']; Skirt - Zara [10']

Look 5
Tee Under the cardigan - Husband's; Red Boyfriend Cardigan - ASOS [10']
Blue Leggings - BDG [10']; Sneakers - Reebok [06']

Look 6                                                       Look 7
(Look 6) Shirt Dress - Banana Republic [10']; Flats - Jean-Micheal Cazabat [06']
(Look 7) Top - COS [10']; Leggings - Hue [10']; Flats - Tory Burch [10']

Here's how I pack: 
1. Pre-plan the outfit (along with the shoes)
2. Mix-n-match (of course!) and be prepared for all the possibilities
3. Carry clothes which weigh less, like cotton tops, leggings, shirts
4. Keep it simple is basically my mantra while traveling 

You can find my elaborate Packing List here.
