Two To Tango #OOTD

Image Source

On 22nd March, Cal and I celebrated our second year wedding anniversary. I still remember scheduling the post for our first anniversary last year and now our second anniversary passed by too. It is true when they say that times flies when you are doing something that you love and with the person you love. Cal and I have been together for over four years now and have been married for two. Nothing has changed since the first day and that is what I think is the secret of our marriage. There still is the same amount of passion, love, respect and everything else that we first came with. After marriage he did not expect me to become something else and nor did I expect him to change. I still am his lover and his best friend. The wife only comes later.

I got married when I was twenty six. Fairly young in my own standards as I wanted to get married only by thirty. But when I knew that the person is right, I did not find any reason to wait and I'm so glad I decided to jump ahead and take the plunge. I really, really love this man. He has stood by me through everything and has been my strength. He knows what is right and wrong and doesn't feel the need to abide by the rules of society. He loves me a lot and more than that, he respects me. He respects me for the woman I am, for the work I do and for the things I write. He doesn't want to be the woman who does things for him, sleeps with him and takes care of him. He doesn't want a maid, he wants a companion and I am exactly that. He can do his own things and he lets me do mine. We are as different as we are similar and yet we co-exist peacefully because of the trust, respect and love that we share.

And because of this, people think that I'm dominant. Sadly, today we live in a society where a man is considered to be woman's puppet, if he respects her or lets her speak. Every body has their own interpretations of things, but we decided to stick on to what we believe. We love each other and that is enough for us to survive. Our second wedding anniversary sealed this fact for us. Cal being the sweetheart that he has has booked a super awesome Sunday brunch for us at Ithaca, The Chancery Pavilion. Since this was a very happy occasion I decided to dress all happy and bright. Cal loves it when I wear a plain white shirt and jeans. That is one of my favorite comfort dressing too. Just like Cal and I, white and blue is the perfect combo and we know that it always takes two to tango! My husband, my perfect match.


Summer is already here in Bangalore and the heat is unbearable. So I wore a loose white shirt with blue denims. To add that extra spunk of color I wore flat shoes in bright yellow. The yellow also matched my bright blue Chumbak tote that he gifted me for the anniversary. After months of searching I finally found the perfect Lennon glasses to suit my face shape and complexion. With that, I was ready for the happy occasion.


Shirt: Street shopping - Commercial street.
Jeans: Levis.
Shoes: Street shopping - Commercial street.
Watch: Tommy Hilfiger.
Tote: Chumbak
Glasses: Street shopping - Commercial street.

I like to mix my brands with street shopped pieces and create a look out of it. Of course I do love my brands, but I love street shopping a tad bit more. More often than not, you would see me in a mix of things that I have curated for myself. At times I even stitch my own clothes to suit the way I want it to be. This is my first OOTD post. Honestly, until now I wasn't sure if I wanted to upload my own pictures here and talk about fashion and style. But then, why not?

How do you like this look?
