Hope you’re enjoying August so far and I know I’ve been slacking lately and missed a couple of days of the challenge (oops!) but hopefully catch up soon!
Also, if you have a blog with art / fashion & beauty / photography posts then leave me your link below because I’m looking to follow some new blogs. And leave me your feedback and comments too; I love hearing what you think!
Experimentation: the loss of colour – the slightest adjustments to colour can sometimes add so much more depth and character to what would otherwise be a standard photo. And in these photographs I used desaturation and adjusted the brightness to emphasise a calmness in the loss of colour rather than creating a harsh contrast. Hence, I added a slight undertone of cream to maintain a soft mellow haze.
I wore a bright blue cotton kurta – a long loose fitting garment; paired with bright-white chinos for a crisp contrast against the vibrant blue of the kurta. I also added a stripe scarf with hints of orange, yellow and red to give the outfit a more relaxed look – simple, comfy and casual.
But my favourite part of this outfit was definitely the shoes: I wore gold-beige flats which are from Pakistan (as is the kurta) and I absolutely love them! with beautiful embroidered detailing in bright colours which I think works well this outfit in echoing the casual feel and bringing the look together, adding that little something special (they’re super comfy too!)
