The Flipkart Fashion Sale | The Color Red

There is something with the color red that I have always loved. As an Aries, I rule the color red. It not only gives me a lot of power & confidence but also helps me with all the energy to fight the daily hustle bustle. Red has always been my color.

I was just browsing through my Flipkart app and found some great pieces during the #FlipkartFashionSale. These pieces are bold, beautiful & red - they define my style!

₹899 ₹359 - 60% OFF 

I love the deep brick red color of this top - peplum is both chic & flattering. The solid color would look great with a statement necklace.

This would look equally good on jeans, cigarette pants or a pencil skirt, it's a basic that'll transition easily from desk to dinner & a must have in your wardrobe!

₹2499 ₹1999 - 20% OFF 

Polka dots are retro-cool plus the wrap silhouette of this dress is very feminine.

I'd pair this with wedge sandals for a lunch date and clean pumps & a blazer for anything that would require a more formal look meeting!

₹4,499 ₹2,690 - 40% OFF

Clarks is one of my favorite shoe brands & I rarely come across a pair I don't like. These color blocked suede wedge heels called out to me instantly!

If you're afraid to try color blocking larger parts of your outfit, let your footwear do it for you. These red, fuschia & purple wedges are so bright & lovely, I'd rock these with any kind of outfit & bold lips - it is International Lipstick Day after all!

Tomorrow is the last day of The Flipkart Fashion Sale, they have some insane discounts going on so I'd definitely urge you to fire up the app & check it out - don't say I didn't tell you.

What I Wore | Casual Vacation Style

Captain KYSO Averagers tshirt // StalkBuyLove shorts // North Star (by Bata) sneakers

If you follow me on instagram (@magali_c), you'll know that I spent the first half of July on a family vacation in Goa! I was a bit nervous about going during the monsoons, Mumbai itself has a very heavy monsoon but Goa can be much, much worse - my mother had often told this story about how it once rained for a whole week without a break.
But lucky for us, we were blessed with absolutely lovely weather it rarely rained for more than 30 minutes at a time, it was always sort of blustery, the sun came out just enough so it was warm (but not hot!) It was a fortnight of absolute bliss, & all I have to show for it is a slight tan & a few extra kilos.
One of the benefits of living in a tropical zone is that you can dress like it's spring or summer almost all the year round. Growing up, a tshirt with a fun print on it with short & sneakers was pretty much my uniform, so this is a lot like that, except with lipstick! ;)
This tshirt from Captain KYSO introduces you to a new bunch of superheroes, the Averagers - the people you call when the earth's mightiest defenders are unable to save the day! Featuring super-ish heroes like Irony Man & The Mighty Bore. Illustrated by Andrew Bargeron, it's available on Captain KYSO (with many more designs by artists for both men & women) & best of all, they ship internationally!
I paired it with a pair of pastel linen shorts from StalkBuyLove, perfect for warmer days; it's high waisted with deep pockets. And finally I wore my new North Star sneakers, they're really comfortable & great for days when you're going to be walking a lot!

In other (random) news I finally bought a new phone! The large screen size & better battery life is totally rocking my world. And a pair of cerise happy plugs makes everything better.

Basically my vacation style is tshirts, shorts & flowy dresses. What do you prefer to wear for beach / tropical vacations? Let me know in the comments below!
