We celebrated daylight savings weekend with no major plans apart from wedding planning and plenty of relaxing. On Saturday I spent a glorious afternoon at Aire Ancient Baths - which was so wonderful it deserves a post of its own and yesterday I had my first facial in a long time at Mario Badescu. So my body feels like jelly and my face is as soft as a baby's bottom. BLISS!
While designed to be a tunic top, the length was long enough to be worn as a dress. Made out of a solid yet light-weight cotton with a slight shimmer to it, I am in LOVE. My favourite part of the dress is the gold saree-like hem - although I wish it went all the way around instead of just the front half of it.
A 2013 resolution is to come up with different ways to wear existing items in my wardrobe. I decided to put another In Sattva - Pantaloon top to this test:
I was in la-la land from the experience at Aire so instead of cooking, we shlepped out to Ditmas Park in Brooklyn for Mimi's Hummus. I needed space for all the pita, chickpeas and shakshuka, so I wore this airy dress that was kindly offered by In Sattva - Pantaloon:
|In Sattva - Pantaloon dress (c/o), Lanvin heels (sim), pearl bracelet, Ann Taylor gold skinny belt (sim)|
Weekend: In Sattva - Pantaloon kurta top (c/o), Sportsgirl Australia belt (sim), DL1961 Nina denim, Target Kaelyn boots (on promo and last worn here)
Weekday: Zara stretch belt (sim and sim) and skirt (sim - so pretty!), Spanx tight-end tights, Prada ankle boots
This is a kurta top in the traditional sense and I would normally wear this at casual Indian functions. In keeping with my new motto, I jazzed up the casualness of the top with a bright red belt and cuffed jeans to my facial yesterday; while a few days earlier I wore it to work tucked into a solid skirt, which showed off the beautiful oriental-like neckline vividly. Wearing this 100% cotton voile top last week made me feel like it was almost Spring... if not for the thick coat shrouding the outfit when outdoors.
Weather-talk aside, In Sattva - Pantaloon have kindly offered this top to a lucky reader:
This 100% cotton top is in a size Medium and has a really pretty embroidered yoke and vibrant cobalt blue neckline. Like the first dress in this post, it also has a distinct hem - this time in an orange-gold colour.
For a chance to win (International readers welcome), all you have to do is follow Tripping the Light Fantastic on Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin AND leave a comment telling which item on the Pantaloon website you'd like to welcome Spring in.
Don't forget to leave a contactable email address.
I will pick out a winner on the evening of Sunday, 17 March.
