Coconut Popsicles

I've been craving popsicles off late and putting away too many shoots because of the heat. Is it only me or is everyone else as bummed out as me knowing that the coming months are only going to get hotter?
I'm a winter baby and cannot stand summer. I prefer layering over shorts and sun dresses any day!
On another note, in today's look I paired a sheer bohemian dobby blouse over well fitted high waisted pants and addeed in pops of red because, why not? Loos waves seemed perfect for the look. A boho updo wouls work well too but I had 2 back to back shoots so had to go for something simple. I know I've been posting less often but you guys can keep up with my life on instagram @askthestylecouncil I promise, I'm very active on there !

Frowning Glory

Shooting outdoors is getting unbearable for me, which is why you'll notice that I'm frowning in these photos. I cannot even begin to think what the coming months are going to be like. That being said, I'm trying to squeeze in as many outfit posts as I can for you guys. Of course instagram still has my #OOTD's and so does snapchat! So you guys will excuse me if there are fewer posts on here , right? No? Ok.
Moving on , I went for a classic combo here, pairing red, black and white. The light wash jeans add as a nice accent color and this particular pair, hugs me in all the right places. I threw on a medium red tote that sat back beautifully with my sandals . To finish off the look, I left my hair loose and messy and added a thin chocker to give the look a little edginess!

If you aren't following me on Instagram @askthestylecouncil and Snapchat @ashwathysk yet, make sure you do and show me some love!

 My love for nautical looks is no secret and my quick getaway at Rotana was a great excuse to bring out all my favorite pieces to sport around the resort.
This sailor top from Camaieu has been my favorite piece for a while now and I did get them in all the colors. Not only is the boat neckline flattering, its also a great piece for days when you’re having a style block. Paired with jeans, skirts or leggings, this essential is going to be a wardrobe savior and I urge you to get them in your life now.
Moving on, I paired the tee with high waisted shorts and used a scarf as a head band and carried my favorite tote to finish off the look! We shot this look before breakfast at Choices at The Art Rotana Baharin where we pigged out on a delicious spread!

If you guys have been following me on snapchat , you know that spent my weekend at Art Rotana Bahrain. I've covered almost everything on snapchat and Instagram but I will be putting up some info for you guys on here as well, early next week!
Moving on, These images were clicked right before brunch at Rosso, and it was only fitting that I wear white to an Italian brunch! I put half my hair up and added crochet espadrilles to match my look.
On another note, the weather is getting unbearable so we had to switch indoors to shoot which is why dual locations. Its so hard to be putting up this post while I still cant get over the amazing time I had with my best friend/ Photographer last weekend. So until I get over that and can manage typing out my experience at Rotana, enjoy this post .

Bronze Goddess

It’s mid week and as my schedule gets busier, my stress levels are up the roof and it’s taking a toll on my hair! Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe and just relax. And when I’m having a bad hair day, I just go back and look at these amazing photographs clicked by Pritham ( @themetalfarmer ) during his time in Bahrain and feel good about myself. Obviously, I had my entire Gloss team work on my hair to look this good.
On another note, this dress is 4 years old, and I’ve only worn it once before. I decided to pull it out for the shoot and pair it with my rose gold pumps. I love the combination of brown and orange so I decided to keep my lips a plummy brown and bronze the F out of the rest of my skin!
I’ve got one more look coming up so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.
Hope you’ve been having a great week so far.

Blue Jewel

As promised, here's another look shot by Pritham of @themetalfarmer for my blog. We shot all 4 looks the same day and it was so hard to pick a few from all the pictures he clicked! I'm even going to put up some BTS shots later!
So in this look, I wore a dress my sister left behind (heheheheh) . I love the beautiful jewel tone of this dress and how beautifully it sits back with my two tone pumps. I painted my lips a deep berry color as a contrast to the blue and Stephan at Gloss Salon helped complete my look with an effortless wavy do!
I'm not going to write much details about this look because the photographs pretty much do the job for me , right?

 Last week I had an incredible day shooting with Pritham of @themetalfarmer photography. He covers everything from fashion shoots to events and architectural stills.
I am so happy to reveal some images from the first look we shot, in collaboration with Gloss Bahrain and Marriott.
In this look, Stephan, the new stylist at Gloss kept my hair really straight and glossy to compliment the mauve makeup look and also keep more focus on this slit body con midi dress. I absolutely love midi dresses at the moment, especially figure hugging ones. The color is light and pretty and my holographic heels were a perfect match for this ensemble!

Make sure you check out @themetalfarmer on instagram , and I cannot wait to show you guys the rest of the looks!

Until then, follow me on instagram @askthestylecouncil and snapchat @ashwathysk !
