Crossing the Line

Sale time is my favorite end to every season. Be it the Mid Season sale or End of Season Sale, it’s always nice to find a few pieces at a cheaper price. I obviously am a very picky shopper. I don’t buy occasion / smart dresses during  sale but I do stock up on basics like plain tees, leggings denims and casual dresses.  I also love stocking up on other basics like hair ties, clips, bobby pins and such. Don’t be afraid of buying basics in every color- they’ll all come in handy very often. I personally pick up basic tees and tanks in every color possible and if my favorite pair of continuity leggings are marked 30% down, I buy 2 to 3 pairs.
Moving on, as my hemlines get shorter in summer here, I’m soon going to change up my style a little along with my surroundings. Yep, I’m travelling to my homeland  this Thursday and I can’t wait to take you all on a virtual tour with me as I roam the streets, discover new places and of course BTS scenes from all my shoots. I’m also going on a huge shopping spree so you can stay connected with me via Instagram to feed back your thoughts .
Until the next post, which will go live from Kerala, much love.

 I have a thing for black and denim. On days when I'm not feeling color, I go back to this trusty combination.White works well too, but I couldn't resist this black cape top. Paired with a tan hand bag and gold strappy summer wedges, this look is one of my "go to's". It's simple,easy to recreate and a fool-proof look.
On another  note, I'm flying out this Thursday to Kerala and will take you though my trip via vlogs and all my social media platforms! The month of August has been a new start for me and I'm super excited. Cannot wait to share BTS of what i'm upto in India with you guys , so make sure you follow me on Snapchat as well (ashwathysk)

High Tea at Noor Lounge

Bahrain being such a small place, it’s amazing when you find a place that’s been left untouched and un-hyped- almost like a hidden jewel that you’ve just discovered. 
Last week I had the chance to visit Noor Lounge at The Intercontinental Regency with my crew and it was a great experience, especially since you don’t really run into many people there and because it’s a great escape from the usual hangout spots- think Adliya, Seef etc.
With beautiful mirrored pillars around the lobby and a bespoke white piano in the center of the lounge, enjoy the ambiance and relax over a pot of your favorite tea or refreshing drinks accompanied by mini treats and pastries. We ordered cold coffee post our shoot on the rooftop and enjoyed the homely feel, sinking into the comfy couches and catching up on team talk.
If you’ve been keeping track of us, you’d already know that we love discovering new places to eat and love recommending them on the blog. Know that feeling you get when you’ve been to a place you love too much that you’ve begun to hate it? We don’t want that now, do we? So if it’s some quiet time for catching up with a bunch of close friends you’re looking for (and not really hungry but wouldn’t mind munching ), check out Noor lounge and call in for the High Tea where a tower* full of sandwiches, scones and macaroons come with a pot of tea.  We’ve got some more great places at The Intercontinental coming up for you guys, so stay tuned and follow us live on Snapchat (ashwathysk) for Behind the Scenes feed.
*One tower good for 2 people.

Vintage Romance

 My love affair with off-shoulder tops and dresses hasn’t died out yet and neither has my fascination with vintage style. I love how sophisticated the era was - full of glamour, neat silhouettes and crisp tailoring. Replicating a look these days can be tough especially when all the high street retailers are all about trendy, street style looks, Which is why I resort to good vintage finds online.
I chanced upon this top while browsing through ASOS and immediately fell in love with it. It can be worn so many ways, which is why I decided to order it in the first place. I was iffy about how the quality would turn out, but luckily, it was just as I imagined it, or even better.
For my weekend look, I paired this delicate woven lace top with a midi full- circle skirt. Simple red peep toes and  a bright fuchsia lip  adds a pop of color and a wavy pony tail completes my retro look.
