I brought a handful of chillis to lunch.

For the past four years, I’ve been evolving from my identity as defined by my family, my job, my age and my background and transitioning into something that goes beyond these things. I find I like vibrancy, quirkiness and originality. I also enjoy comfort, prudence and practicality. These things reflect in my style.

The October heat is here and I was having lunch with friends over the weekend. Here’s what I wore – a typical ‘me’ look these days.

This is crepe dress with a heart-shaped cutout neckline and a vibrant chilli pepper print. I added a red belt for definition. Especially post the fracture, heels and otherwise insensible footwear are a no-no for me. Mercifully, I chanced upon the Clark’s brand that has seems to know sensible doesn’t mean ugly and *wonder of wonders* stocks in my size. Given all of this and the heat, I didn’t think I needed any further accessorizing than that watch.
