#Revived | Mehendi ft. The Loom

Image
As you know, the whole idea behind this series was to break the norm of wearing blingy & OTT outfits to wedding functions, create looks that are affordable and basically, to add a #revived piece from my mom's closet.


So coming to the mehendi look, I decided to go monotone this time & picked this unconventional kurta set from The Loom.

DAY OUT

Here I styled this trench coat as a dress & paired it with calf length socks & booties! Added a black handbag & geeky glasses, also regular side swept wavy hair before heading out.  This look is ideal for a day out with friends for shopping, movie or a brunch!
