Rain Rain Go Away!


Its raining here! Raining!! India should NOT have rains in January. Its just unnatural and has put my whole schedule off track. After a frantic morning of searching for my rain gear as well as rain-friendly outfits to substitute my original planned outfit (yes, I plan outfits in advance now, blame it on the new year) I had to turn my wardrobe upside down. Let me tell you, the ever present cool winds blowing through my bedroom window did not help! (because for some weird reason its winter and monsoon at the same time today). Wanna know how I managed to create an outfit that was both warm enough and still quick drying? I'm going to let the pictures do all the talking!

I'm so happy I managed to find my mom's jumper today. I actually had another combination planned (with lots of layers) but this jumper is so warm+cozy yet quick drying (I've worn this within an hour of washing in the past) that I just knew it was perfect for the ping-pong weather. These trousers are just the right amount of cheat I needed to look like I made an effort to get dressed (nobody needs to know about the waist high pile of clothes at home right!). Add my trusty ballet flats, a bright lippy and I'm all set to face the silly weather. (Oh yea, I wanted a hot pink lipstick, but since I was going to Uni, I toned it down, a little).
