Shoe Diaries with Clarks India




Hello Everyone! I have always been a self-confessed shoe-a-holic. When I was contacted by Clarks India to be part of their Shoe Diaries campaign, I just could not refuse. I always loved Clark shoes for their simplicity and comfort. For all those who do not know, Clarks has been making shoes since 1825. In short, Clarks has decades of experience in making comfortable shoes which are classic collector items for a women's wardrobe. Keeping in my mind my necessities and work schedule, I chose Amulet Myth shoe to style. Read on to find out, how I spend my day in Clarks shoes!

Usually my day starts with early morning blog meetings. I prefer my outfits to be smart casuals for the meetings. Therefore, I styled Clark shoes with Zara top, Van Heusen midi skirt and Zara blazer. I love the subtle mix of prints in the outfit, but I still felt it lacked a bit of color. Therefore, added color to the outfit with pink blazer and red handbag. Completed the look with a few bracelets, ring and Michael Kors watch.

Post blog meetings, I run (literally) to work to reach office on time. Since I am in client facing role, most of the time I am dressed in formals. I admit, it is literally impossible to run around in high heels every day. These shoes are a blessing! Stylish and comfortable for wearing to client meetings. I styled my Clark shoes with H&M Blazer, Sheinside lace top and Van Heusen skirt. I kept accessories to minimum and added a single ring. I love adding prints to all my outfits. Therefore, I completed the look with leopard scarf, statement sunglasses and watch. I usually prefer not to go out in the evening on weekdays. Post work, I come home and start working on blog. Every morning the cycle starts again.

Weekends are always more hectic than weekdays. Therefore, I start every Saturday morning going out for brunch to gear up. My go to outfits for weekends has always been Maxi's. I absolutely love this maxi, the feminine pink and the goth print makes it very versatile to style according to your mood swings. Channeling the rock girl in me, I styled the maxi with leather jacket and mirrored sunglasses. My Clarks shoes perfectly compliment the look. Though most people would not think about wearing ballad flats with and leather jackets, it adds the required feminine touch to keep the outfit from looking over the top.

Hope you enjoyed reading through, do let me know what you think of the styling and Share your shoe diaries with me on Twitter!

Who am I?






There is a saying that there is a rebel lying deep in every soul. How much of the rebel comes out, is the key to define who you are. I have always been labelled as the "Girl in the Skirt" who is just loves fashion and is self-indulgent. This blogpost is about defining who I am and what I stand for.

News flash to all the people who judged me this is for you :

"Just because I wear a skirt does not mean I am self-indulgent #BUTT OUT"
"Just because I wear a skirt does not mean I am bimbo #BUTT OUT"
"Just because I wear a skirt does not mean I am disgrace to my culture #BUTTOUT"
"Just because I wear a skirt does not mean I am too modern #BUTTOUT"
This is for all the Men out there - "Just because I wear a skirt does not mean I am easily available #BUTT OUT"
"Just because I wear a skirt does not mean my opinions don't matter #BUTT OUT"
"Just because I blog does not mean I am not good at my day job #BUTT OUT"
"Just because I blog does not mean I am jobless #BUTT OUT"
Lastly, "Just because I wear red lipstick does not mean I am slut #BUTT OUT"

God gave us all a face, but gave us an option to define it. So ultimately Who am I? I am Jealous 21 girl who is confident, independent, opinionated and smart. I define the rules of my life and live accordingly. No skirt nor any culture defines me. A girl who always has and will always stand up and fight for her dignity, freedom and ambitions. A girl who defines a trail and leaves behind a legacy. So rest of the world "BUTT OUT"

Thank you for being part of my blog journey which has given me three amazing years.
