Grey Peacock


I've never really been a big fan of feathers. The only kind of feathers I used to like are the ones you can use write letters where you pretend your Shakespeare successor. (I have a few real peacock feathers I've inherited from my grandma that I used to try and write with!). But recently, I've discovered the joy of wearing feathers as fashion accessories (read earrings) and they're so lightweight its a relief to my poor skin! (my skin's allergic to all kind of dust...go figure!)

I seem to become overly conscious when the timer is ticking. :/

Note to self, learn to post better.

So continuing in the tradition of wearing feathers, I give you today's dress. (Read about my previous styling attempts here). I didn't even remember I had this in my closet till I stumbled upon it a while back during a shirt-hunt. And I have to say, as far as monsoon dresses go, this falls under the ideal category. The material is a polyester-cotton-linen blend which dries out in minutes, the length just right and the neckline, oh so pretty! The print is a little abstract and that makes it interesting enough for me to imagine I'm an ageing peacock. (okay, maybe not a peacock, but a sparrow maybe? Oh wait, are any of those gray?)

I tried a different setting in this picture. Again, I seem to be stuck in one pose. 

A not very nice attempt to show the hairband. 

I love how this picture turned out for some reason!

I kept my hair simple because I think sometimes, its just not worth the effort it takes to fix it (how lazy am I!?) A messy bun can be made chic by adding an interesting hairband. In my case, I was hoping that the shiny diamonds in my head distracted people from the fact that I hadn't bothered to sort out my hair. The earrings are an impulse buy (which my best friend opposed) and the clutch is a gift from a cousin. Overall, a quick outfit that doesn't take more than 5 minutes to put together.

Take note of the pretty detailing on the earrings!

Do you have any quick fix outfits? How do you sort out bad hair days when you can't/won't use hair-styling products? Talk to me in the comments. You could also catch me on Twitter or Instagram.

 PS: I've recently started using Pinterest and I have no clue how it works tbh, so if your on there give me a shoutout, or...umm...whatever it is that you do there.
