Honestly, it is not just about what fit you wear but to tackle the summers one got to be very specific of the fabric. Natural Organic fabrics like cotton or linen are best for summers. These fabrics act as a cooling agent to our body and also ensure less sweat accumulation. The other thing which is really important during summers is the makeup. Wearing really heavy base / foundation during summers, especially when you are moving out will definitely lead to break out. It is best to go for less or no makeup look for hot summer afternoons.

As I stepped-out one of the summer afternoon, I made sure that my entire look is as summery as possible.  From the fabric of my dress to the Makeup that I wore, everything was low maintenance and hassle free. Remember the philosophy of less is more whenever you are getting ready for such heated afternoon. However, be extremely generous with the Sunscreen lotion to make sure that you are protected from the sun.

The A-line High waisted dress with flowery print on white cotton fabric did the trick for me. Its not just flowy and breezy but also the Perfect Hemline and the fit makes it an ideal wear for summers. It ain’t too tight and lets my Skin breath and allows perspiration. I teamed the faded blue sneakers with this dress. These are extremely light weight which is really needed for summers and for a person like me who is always on the go.  I Spent good amount of time pondering over the makeup since I was in a fix between make up or no makeup look.

As the sanity prevailed, I decided to play a bit with my eye make up, with a faded lipshade and no base on the face look. The Eyes have been done using two different shades of Eye shadow and a Thin slice of eye liner. The lips were given smudged kissed look by dabbing it with a tissue paper after lipstick application. I did give a bit of Pink blush only to the apples of my cheek. All this makeup done on top of my bare skin with no base or foundation, but just the dose of sunscreen lotion.

Here you go with all my pictures. Have a look and decide for yourself if this is Your perfect look for this summer.

Well, yes! finding a good guy ( Good guy = The guy who is good to you) is the most difficult job on this planet. Not because the men’s population has gone downhill but the quality has definitely not improved as per the requirement of a cosmopolitan girl. May be that’s the reason why I still have so many  happy and successful single girl friends. It wasn’t a cake walk for me as well. After meeting tons of men of varied species with different (sometimes weird) choices in life, I kind of successfully completed this task of finding the man of my dreams as I met My Husband Saurabh Bhargava.
