Codes And Colour

Hey guys :: )

We all are aware of that one old saying, " Nothing works better than basic denims and a crisp white shirt." Apparently, for reasons unknown to me, its the standard answer provided by almost all celebrities and fashion forwards when asked about their favourite outfit. It is so cliché yet SO TRUE. When in doubt, this outfit indeed works the best for you. But if you guys too follow my Somethings Are Never Just Basic philosophy, I am sure you would like the pop of COLOUR I infused in this CODE.

 I paired my regular denims with a white poplin shirt. I tied this beautiful printed scarf in blue and white as a bow. I added colour with this large Hobo bag (It is indeed large, it carries my laptop as well :p), ballerina flats and my super cute hearts bracelet (Its actually a neck - piece worn as a bracelet). You can check out how I wore a different shade of it here.  


Jeans from Lycra
Poplin Shirt from ZARA
Bag from Mango
Ballerina flats from a local store in Chandigarh
The scarf is thrifted from Mumbai
Hearts Neck - piece is gifted :)

My blog so far has never seen a product review. However I just want to share with you a wonderful product I discovered today. It was meant to be a quick pick from the department store but it surely left me excited and happier today. I am talking of the new range of Body Wash from LUX. I recently picked up their 'Scarlet Blossom' body wash. Its rich in colour (It's *Violet*) and the texture has a fine pearl finish. But what impressed me the most was the fragrance. The fragrance completely, entirely swept my senses. It claims to be scented with Egyptian Violets and Elemi Oil, but after using it all I could think of was sum luxe spas in Bali or Egypt maybe. And certainly the fragrance does lingers. A spa experience in a wouldn't mind that, would you? 

The 250ml bottle costs Rs. 99 which makes it a great me!!

If you go on to try this, I would love to know your views as well :)
