How do I wear Midi skirt ?

ACCORDING TO DESIGNER CHESTER WEINBERG, WHO MADE THE MIDI HIS SIGNATURE, THE MIDI WAS “ALMOST AS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE WOMEN’S MOMENT. IT’S FOR THOSE WHO DON’T PARTICULARLY CARE ABOUT WHAT MEN THINK ABOUT THE WAY THEY DRESS.”

The midi skirt was the beginning of a fashion evolution, that was evident in the rising hem lines in 1900. Love it or hate it, the midi is a classic piece that deserve it’s won chapter in the books of fashion evolution. 

When the midi first appeared it caused quite an uproar and lead to political and aesthetic revolution in womenswear. The midi skirt is a tricky silhouette to pull off. While it can be very flattering if paired with the right shoes and hem line, it can be a disaster if the length of the skirt doesn’t hit the right place bellow your knee.

 

This fashion trend favours tall and slim silhouette. The degree of difficulty  for this trend is pretty high so you will get a lot of fashion point to pull this one off.The lady like midi is now more sophisticated, streetwise , in tweeds and tartans. 

 There is a reason the midi skirt keeps bouncing back in fashion, it has been all over the catwalk for several season. The skirt is office appropriate and  flattering for all ages. They come in several print and material from edgy to floral and from casual boho to office appropriate pencil skirt. 

Split midi skirt are perfect office wear. The floral one looks great and can add some colour and life to the boring office wear.

Though it is better to opt for heels to pair with midi, they look dashing with ballet flats too.

The skirt that never goes out of style  makes for great two piece. These are easy to pull off. The midriff barring trend is modern and sleek. The midi paired with cropped top gives a casual vibe.

For the daring and the brave asymmetrical hem and geometrical prints. Another playful twist to the classic midi with asymmetrical hem lines and shear panel.

 The midi mostly regarded as formal skirt can be flirty and fun. In dark colour and myriads of prints the midi is for all occasion.

Jewel-toned satins midi paired with tall boots and turtlenecks, perhaps with a sliver of skin showing at the waist would get the temperatures high in winter.

 They are appropriate for winters too. I love the voluminous skirts paired with knits and plums. Yes, midi is definitely of those trend that you can wear all through the year in every season.

Meet my favorite travel companion

Books are uniquely portable magic  
                                                                  – Stephen King 

Traveling is awesome and exhilarating experience. Going to great places and seeing the vastness and wealth of nature never fail to amaze me. Well long distance travel is often boring especially if you do it alone. Travelling alone can be challenging. Spending time with oneself will teach you a lot about yourself. 

I hate sitting idle and while travelling there is ample time to do nothing. Reading is the best option that I love. I generally buy new books before a journey and read them though out the journey. 

Books are my best friend and the best part, reading the book again always reminds me of the trip I read the book on for the first time.

Though I prefer a book I can hold on to, you can opt for a brand new kindle if you prefer so. Here are some reason why  you should consider  reading while traveling.

# Way better than sitting idle and staring in the ether. Instead Travel Read Learn  and Eat Pray Love.

# Saves you form the persistent unsavory travel companions that you may come across.   

#A reason to stay away from you smart phone and  messages. Get away from the phone office you deserve a vacation.

#Unplug from the social media and banish FOMO. 

#The perfect opportunity for a social media detox. Facebook, instagram, snapchat and twitter will survive, without you checking on them every hour. 

#Great time to get started with your reading list, the one you have been putting together for a really long time. 5 books that taught us to be badass  are great reads if you don’t have a reading list yet.

#Well for once your phone won’t run out of battery and you will be able to make call when you actually need it. I am sure you have had your phone battery misbehaving when you need it the most.

15-Benefits-of-Drinking-Lemon-Water

Why you should consider switching to lemon water instead of coffee in the morning.

I am die hard coffee lover but after learning what coffee does to the body when ingested on empty stomach and experiencing the same I switched to  Lemon water. I  relied  on coffee to get me through the day during my college and first internship.

Instead of having proper diet which is hard to procure in college I was dependent on coffee. It lead to several health issues and coffee was the crux of it all.

What lemon water does to you body

It boosts you immune system, aids digestion, flush out toxins from your body by enhancing enzyme function & stimulating your liver, boosts your energy and helps you loose weight.

It helps you to loose weight and fight symptoms of common cold which is very beneficial to me as I am susceptible to cold. Loaded with health benefits  

I get my daily coffee fix after breakfast. Guess you don’t really forget your first love, even if it is toxic ! 

What coffee does to your body

Coffee contains caffeine the most commonly used psycho-stimulant available that blurs the line between drugs and beverages. Psychoactive drugs like caffeine alters the way our mind functions .

Coffee helps you to loose weight and boost your energy. Found in coffee tea , soda , chocolate energy drinks, prolonged daily use of caffeine might lead to dependency.

Stopping the use of caffeine abruptly or reducing intake may lead to onset of withdraw. Caffeine abuse survey revealed 14% used despite harm and advice to stop or reduce While 45% reported unsuccessful efforts to control caffeine usage .

In defense of coffee. It is simple awesome and not something most of us live without.Coffee is the reason  Why it is ok to be twenty-something and still not know what to do with your life.

People who know me know about my Obsessive Coffee Disorder.(OCD). But I have made the conscious decision to switch to lemon water in the morning.
