From Mundane to Mumbai

Sometimes we overlook the beautiful things around us. I can talk about Mumbai in a similar fashion. I was in Mumbai for some work and while it is not an ideal place for vacation, it was a mini break from my routine. I have been here multiple times, never have I explored the city like this before. It is true that one can find beauty even in the busiest of cities.

It has been a while since I sat down and penned my thoughts. This is not my guide to the city but a visual journey where I strolled on the streets of Colaba and got a chance to admire the Victorian architecture, experienced the fast life of local trains, saw the tide wash against the rocks at Worli Sea Face, watched people as they relaxed at Chowpatty and enjoyed solo walks by the sea.

Comfort is my main agenda while I am travelling. I pack a pair of jeans and lots of white loose shirts. But I definitely pack one special outfit that has the power to instantly uplift my mood. I feel that how you dress can change your perception of the objects, people, and events around you—sparking fresh ideas and a new point of view. I am wearing a mint green puffed skirt which goes so well with the sea. The color is so calming in this hot and humid weather. It was my first time doing a photo shoot at the beach and I hope you will enjoy the glimpse of my style and the city.

    Sometimes rediscovering cities is the best! I’ve never been to Mumbai, but it looks gorgeous.

    I try to pack 1 “feel-good” outfit every time I travel as well – it really does wonders for my mood!
