 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 !

Are you all dreading the heat that’s taking over as much as I am? I’m a winter baby so the sun is a complete NO-NO for me. No, the sunshine does not make me cheery, it actually makes me go into hiding. I love cloudy/ gloomy weather and honestly I feel much more energetic just when it’s about to rain.
Moving on, in today’s look, I paired this ribbed midi body con dress with a burgundy bag and rose gold heels. You would have seen on my snapchat that I’ve been loving lace-up flats and sneakers with dresses off late and while I would also pair this little number with a pair of white sneakers, I thought I’d show you guys how to “casually” dress it up!
Try this look out with a denim vest and a messy bun or a pony tail with sneakers and it’s still going to look super hot.
I’m currently loving midi body con dresses so don’t be surprised if you see an over-kill on my feed, heheh.

Sweet as Wine

I’m finally back to my blogging routine and as much as Id like to blog everyday for you guys, its impossible for me, having a full time jobL . I’m definitely going to try and make it 2- 3 looks a week. And if you guys are following me on Snapchat and Instagram, you’re getting much more of my shenanigans there, so yay!
Moving on, I’m loving this mock wrap skirt as it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I’ve previously paired it with a lace blouse to dinner and here I’ve paired it with a jersey tee to give off a more relaxed vibe. While I would even pair this with a pair of platform sneakers, I’ve been dying to feature these holographic shoes on the blog and decided to wear them instead. It sits back beautifully with my grey handbag, that adds a nice contrast to the burgundy skirt.

On another note, Hope you guys are all doing well! I know a lot of you have been asking about wedding details. I may not answer on a public forum, but feel free to PM me or mail me on and Id be happy to answer them all!
