Summer Lookbook | Look 14

Back from a bit of a break – we travelled to the hills but I found myself mostly shooting so it didn’t turn out to be a break I deserve but luckily I love what I do so I don’t want to kill myself for not taking an ACTUAL vacation now that I’m back. Oops! On the brighter, more exciting side – I have loads of new looks for you guys so yayyiee! ANother addition to the ‘SUMMER LOOKBOOK’ before summer ends.

August was an insane month work-wise, I did SO much, I literally never thought my body and mind would be capable of cramming so much work in 1 month – but I did it – and I kicked ass. September has been pretty crazy too and I know it’s going to get even more so towards the end. I have lots of exciting shoots and projects coming up – I feel like a bouncy ball bouncing infinitely against the walls just thinking about the things I can do with the projects at hand – my mind never shuts off – I really need to take out time to meditate. Can you tell? From the way I’m writing? How frantic/distracted my brain is? Phew! I need a fucking vacation! This line almost seems like a joke to me now.

Getting back on track – I have the prettiest, moth ethereal Indian outfit for you guys today. Not Indian in a let’s attend wedding functions Indian, but a lot more sober, understated, almost calming, ‘I feel like wearing Indian all day today’ Indian. Makes sense?
It’s in one of my favorite current fabrics – Chanderi (I’ve seen an impressive resurgence of Chanderi fabric recently with quite a few Indian labels using it in their collections and I’m loving it! Or perhaps it’s just because of the season?) All outfit details are as usual given at the end of the blog post along with all the product links incase you guys want to shop this look.
ps – I shopped these as separate pieces from the website and put them together – the kurts & slip + dupatta + pants.

    What a pretty pretty outfit and you look ethereal.
    Could you tell me what size you’re wearing if you don’t mind? Ive never shopped this brand and was wondering how the sizes run.

    The traditional Coord set is looking beautiful beyond expectations. It is giving a Indian cultural look. It is showcasing as if a NRI (foreigner)is in love with her traditional look. You are looking really pretty!!!

    It is said YOU NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE but this proves right only when you yourself love what you wear!!!
    The same feeling comes when I saw you in this pic!!!
    Pretty Akansha!!! ♥😘

  • People say you look beautiful when you wear branded clothes!!!! The fact is people look beautiful because they wear a smile on their face and clothes are worn by them!!!! ♥

    You look resplendent here. I like this look the most because of it’s subtle yet fashionable appeal. The colours are classy and perfect for a summery event. They way you have accessorized it is also beautiful.

    Hey.. i loved this indian but not so desi look. Chanderi completely suited you. And the contrast footwear is just adding that edge to the whole outfit. Loving the whole idea of soothing colors on the top, and a bold one beneath with minimum accessories so the suit takes all the thunder away. And that cute neck piece is completing the look. Love all your look but this one more.
