Hola people! How is everyone beating the crazy summer heat? I have switched over to cotton in my wardrobe, and melons in my diet. It stuns me how cotton, being such a lightweight and a ‘simple’ fabric, can still transcend into a strong outfit with high impact. So, today’s post is all about a floral explosion with PERKY POCKETS where I’ve experimented with fabrics and prints.
Flowers are a beautiful symbol of freshness, grace, and purity and are synonymous with spring. Floral prints are what I naturally cleave to in all seasons but I can play around with them much more in the spring.
There are certain trends that are practically reminiscent of summer. Floral prints are eternal, versatile and represent strong femininity, cheerfulness, and effortlessness. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and staying comfortable this summer. Floral prints definitely put me in a good mood! How about you?
I am dressed up in PERKY POCKETS with umbrella overhead, flowers for dresses, and happy smiles for make-up!
These prints are so nice that you don’t really need to accessorize. What do you think?
Do tell me in the comments what do you think about this look!

My affection for Indian wear knows no boundaries and you’ll always find me attracted towards it in the slightest of ways; whether it’s teaming up jhumkas with my western outfits or add a desi touch with bindi or mojris. It’s a cultured elegance that certainly boosts the outfit tenfold.
A house of textiles, India has always been known for its culture and crafts. Kalamkari is one such form of craft which includes freehand drawing and block printing on cotton fabrics derived from Persian words. Characteristically named after the technique of its making, ”qalam” denoting pen and ”kari” signifying craftsmanship, Kalamkari has been ubiquitous in numerous parts of Southern India, primarily in Andhra Pradesh. This art makes use of only natural colors or vegetable dyes which makes it unique!
Several Indian fashion designers are using kalamkari recurrently in their fashion week runways; the latest trend that seems to have caught the attention of fashionistas is the Buddha print. Fashion enthusiasts seem to be well-tuned to the fact that the Buddha need not be detained for being a statue in the lounge, but can be fashionably sported on dresses, sarees, jackets, or kurtas too.
I particularly love the way contemporary Indian wear binds traditional silhouettes with edgy styles and that’s exactly what I am wearing from my own label Perky Pockets. This outfit is an amalgamation of trendy style with alluring Indian print and design, sure to turn some heads!
Keeping the look simple and the attention focused on Buddha print, I paired up this dress with silver jhumkas and nude heels.
