Being a true dreamer, I am most comfortable when left alone with my thoughts, day dreaming about life, people and planning for the future. As each day ticks by, I tell myself that, that’s another day gone, another day closer to the end of the year. I kind of make it sound way too serious and ominous in my head than it is. But that’s who I am! As the year draws closer, questions about what I want to do in the future, and whether I am doing what I need to do in order to shape it up the way I want to, start popping up in my head. Mostly it’s only questions. The answers, those tend to not pop up. Forget resolutions, but I’ve always believed in making plans and having goals and a purpose in life. But it is when it comes to the implementation part that life tends to throw those dreaded curve-balls.
But it is the year end, and in spite of feeling that tinge of sadness for leaving this year behind, I can’t help but get into the festive mood of this month! Keeping that in mind, I started dressing up in a bit more cheery fashion. One such early morning, I get dressed in a cozy sweater, drive down to the city enjoying the cold cold air on my face, my hands freezing on the steering wheel, the roads slowly coming to life as the city wakes up, and finally rush into the warmth of a coffee shop. I styled my entire look for the day around these animal print leather flats from The Tan Base – Strappy, comfortable sandals that you can wear on any casual look, made out of 100% leather. I like the fact that they can go with almost any kind of outfit, be it trousers or jeans or a dress or maybe a maxi skirt. Winter mornings in Hyderabad are an absolute pleasure. Although there is hardly any ‘winter’ this year, I’m grabbing whatever little of it that I can.
This is the second look I styled for the Festive/Christmas edit for The Tan Base. If you are looking to grab your pair they currently stock at Centro store, Banjara Hills Road no.1, Centro Store, Forum Sujana Mall Kukatpally and on flipkart.com and jabong.com
