Monsoon Style in Mumbai

Monsoon Style in Mumbai



Make Love Not War top c/o Golmaal // Lee Jeans // Georgia Nautical camera bag c/o Jo Totes // Original tall gloss Hunter wellies

I know it’s been about a month since my last outfit post, but do you see my much shorter hair? I was a little horrified when I first got it but I really like how the layers look now.

Monsoons in Mumbai are terrible. There, I said it. And I have to admit that Mumbai has terrible infrastructure & is very dirty (I still couldn’t love another city this much, though).

When I bought these wellies last year I was so excited. I love classic British footwear. They weren’t cheap, but are incredibly well made & lovely to look at. But as in the case of any different shoe buy I still kept wondering if I’d made the right decision, if they were truly practical & comfortable. Well I wore them for the first time yesterday & I cannot describe the joy. With my dressing style, I’m used to getting extra attention on the streets of Mumbai but this was different. Everybody stared. Some curious, many envious & a couple of guys actually came up to me on the street & told me they loved my boots. I didn’t wear socks, & they were still incredibly comfortable. While I’m used to playing hop-scotch around puddles, I could just walk through them without a care in the world. Bliss.

And now I have to talk about this awesome bag that Jo Totes sent me. I’m always carrying a camera (or three!) around with me. I liked my old camera bag, though it wasn’t a drab black one (it was blue with white stripes) it still wasn’t very stylish, & definitely wasn’t comfortable. I’d been eyeing Jo Totes bags for a while: They make stylish & functional camera bags for ladies. My folks loved the bag when they laid their eyes on it- This pictures do not do it justice. The leatherette is buttery soft, the antiqued buckle & strap loops look so good & the interior is roomy without being bulky.

It’s comfortable to carry around, reasonably priced, pretty & all of my camera stuff fits neatly inside. What more could a girl want?!

Special thanks to my mom for taking all the photos in this post (except the last one). I’m not used to being in front of the lens & would much rather be behind it. These outfit-photo-shoots are not the easiest for my mom, as she’s not used to taking photos but she’s incredibly patient with me. Also she’s getting a lot better! Now she’s shooting on manual.

I leave for a short trip to Delhi (my first ever!) in just two days. I’m really excited. I haven’t packed yet but my wardrobe is going to consist of one pretty dress & a whole lot of grungy tees & comfy sneakers. I hope to do a lot of exploring & eating & shopping & photo takeout-ing.

love,

Magali
