Living in India was always going to influence my style choices; I mean how could it not?! Every day is an assault on the senses. Colourful concoctions of beautiful beaded saris and bold indo-western fashions hit me on a daily basis, I love it and it’s bound to impact on my own style in some way.
Al and I spent the weekend in Wayanad (a beautifully tropical place, in north east Kerala). While we were there we met Rocío and Nando, a couple from Seville who were travelling south India for a few weeks. One evening, Rocío turned up to the bar wearing a beautiful pair of silk patterned trousers, teamed with a plain vest, denim shirt and leather sandals. It was the perfect mix of Indian and western style…and the inspiration I had been looking for.
Here’s Rocio in another of her beautiful purchases:
I’m still on the lookout for a pair of trousers to rival Rocío’s, but for now I’m making do with this pair I spotted in Zara (yes, the love affair with Zara still goes on). It’s a very different look for me, but I really like it and they are SOOOOOOO comfortable to wear. I’m also really impressed with how versatile they are…I’m loving them with neon and studs. Every now and then, I know the time has come for me to develop my style and try something new…so that's exactly what I did.
