Outfit(s) of the Day: Eurotrip!

by mehak on July 11, 2012

in Fashion

What happens when you  honeymoon in countries with the most undpredictable weather of all??? Well, all the tiny skirts and shorts you carried with you – go to waste because you never know what the weather might feel 5 minutes from now !! London and Paris were crazy- cold, cold, wind one minute and sveltering hot sun the next. As we were lying in Primrose Hill near Regents Street i just wanted to shout at the clouds i was gazing at and yell “Make Up Your Mind DAMMIT!!!!!” . But well, they dont listen to small indian people honeymooning under them- and so we just had to deal with climate changes every 10 minutes or so. Sigh.

But apart from that, London was SUPER FUN. We saw Phantom of the Opera, hung out in Leicester Square, lost a ton of money at the Casino, went clubbing , shopped on Oxford Street, ate at some of the most interesting little restaurants and all in all had a blast. The start to our second city- Paris was frankly- aweful. There was a gay pride parade in the city the day we landed, and while the parade was awesome stuff with good music and a great party vibe, no taxi guy was ready to navigate through the parade. So we basically had about 50 kgs of luggage with us and we had to walk close to two and a half hours to get to our hotel. Nightmare that- coupled with the fact that the Parisians refuse to understand what you are saying.! (“No English No English” they kept saying , but they kept humming along to David Guetta songs and i was like- thats English !!!!) But it got  better- there was the cruise at the Siene, the gorgeous gorgeous streets and architecture , the charming little cafes on the cobbled streets, , the eiffel tower, the louvre, disneylandddd and the most amazing dessert i ever tried- white chocolate and wasabi ice cream !  Paris was also a place where we had the most amazing kinds of street food- falafels, nutella and banana crepes, macaroons, chocolates, sorbets. Oh my god, it was insanely yummy!!! But most of all i just wanted to walk down those cobbled pathways, sit in a cosy little cafe and look at the parisians walking by with all their silk scarves and what not. Its hard not to be  in love with Paris, its just such a charming city!!! Switzerland is a story in itself because no matter what people say about it being cliched, it was beyond gorgeous. Interlaken was like walking through a post card. Unfortunately my camera battery died so i only got to click about 7 days of the Honeymoon!

Here are the serial number wise outfits which covers about halfwa through the Honeymoon!

  1.  Blue top and Mint Green Pants.
  2. Printed Red Dress also worn here
  3. Blue Tube with jeggings and orange belt
  4. Printed mini skirt with Black top
  5. Shorts, Tights and a jacket. The weather screwed this outfit
  6. Slinky black top, black shorts, black blazer
  7. Printed Dress with Lace Blazer
  8. Black Zip top with Mint green Pants and Sneakers
  9. Orange tube
  10. Orange tube with White Pants and a striped Cardigan (Love this cardigan- it can be worn in 11 diff ways)
Here are some other sites from the trip.

YUM. Steak- this was upposed to be an appetizer for one !!! Both of us couldnt get through half of this!

Ping Pong at London. Loved the food here. So different

The Eiffel Tower in all its lit up glory. Quite a sight that!

View from Interlaken of Jungfrao mountain. We actually went up there to all the snow, but my camera was low on battery that day!

Inside the Louvre. This was the most interesting part of the louvre for me. Called Napolean Apartments- it had the most royal, luxurious furnishings.

What did i buy? Not much- a couple of tops, a couple of dresses, a Micheal Kors bag which i got on 60 % off in London and was a freaking amazing deal! But i didnt spend too much time shopping really. I did buy myself an Urban Decay Pallette but honestly only because it was reduced from 40 pounds to 10 pounds..hehe! I a sucker for sales.

By the way, woould anyone like some gyaan on how to do a good Budget Honeymoon in Europe? We did a lot of stuff and it was pretty in budget as compared to the kind of money others spend!!!

Congratulations again!! May I say, you look gorgeous! (And I am sure Mr. Boy will agree). Please Please do more posts of the outfits, and how about some pics of the marriage too? And while I am at it, thank you for making us all a part of the marriage through the blog. I am a real sucker for marriage.

P.S. : I have to share this, I suggested to my bhabhi who was on a maternity leave to read your blog. Never was sure if she did. Now we all know as we have welcomed my beautiful lil niece whom bhabhi nicknamed, you guessed it, “Peaches” :)

Reply

shweta July 11, 2012 at 10:24 am

there are tons and tons of places where u can good deals in london.i was a cabin crew and have spent days scouring streets of london.. primark.. contrary to wht ppl think is a great place for ur underthings..i have things from there that lasted me more than 2 yrs.. theres some place tht begins with m forgot the entire name… awesome trndy stuff… u can go to kingston and slough for great budget shopping.. makeup in superdrug is great.. try the sleek makeup stuff.. its a hit in the blogosphere.Boots for hand cream ..one thing u must fet from primark if u live in delhi are the opaque stockings… go with pretty much everything and for @gbp for 3 pairs u cannot go wrong.i have mine left over from 2007!!!tht time they were 1gbp.and ofcurse camden town for vintage-y stuff and a great place to hang out as well.dont forget topshop river island ..forgo monsoon as it has mostly india inspired shops!hope this helps..its a looong one though

Reply

shweta July 11, 2012 at 10:26 am

the opaque stockings are for 2gbp

Reply

Peachesandblush July 11, 2012 at 11:14 am

I totally agree. You MUST visit Primark. I honesyly find shopping in London quite cheap because there sales actually mean SALES. Like 70% off flat and stuff like that. But even if not on sale, Primark is great you can get amazing things for under 10 pounds likedresses and stuff which you wont even find in india. I hoarded on primark. The other ones- h & m has some good sales, topshop on sale is a good deal and also new look!

shweta July 11, 2012 at 11:18 am

yeah mehak… u know all the hoity toity ppl go like ewwwwww primark!i lovved it ..u get awesome ballerina flats great swimwear n even good home stuff !i had a colleague who used to regularly get rompers from there for her baby.. she was like no point spending a fortune when he can have such a variety of clothes and he spoils them soon neway!n for abt 20 gbp toh u can go crazy !the primark in kingsto is huge!!!!!!

Mehak,

First of all congratulations…. great blog too…I am going through Bridezilla and must say your blogs are a great reservoir of info…I need help n suggestions…I am getting married in November. usually i have all the advise for each and everyone but seems when my tym has come i m suffering from a fashion block. i will be going to italy for my honeymoon which as everybody say will be chilling cold. What kind of outfits should i carry.. ( i feel reallly reallly cold.) ..Outfits that are sexy n smart plus can save me from bloody cold.

Reply

mehak July 12, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Oohh..italia…get yourself a black blazer- a black slouchy , boyfriend blazer- wear it with jeggings !!! I have a black blazer that i love to death…Every girl needs a tan leather jacket so i would defiitely get that. And do the classic preppy look.. tights with shorts on top, a shirt tucked in and a blazer !!!! Apart from that, lets see cold clothing for me is all about layering and accessories so tons of gloves, hats and mufflers . You know what there are these tights you get for winters they look normal from outside but from the inside theyr lined with soft light fur. SO warm and SO chic!

Inaya July 11, 2012 at 1:23 am

Wow, glad you enjoyed your trip and lovely outfits :) I went on a Euro tour last year..albeit with the parents..lol! So no naughty stuff.I wanted to go see the cabaret but no such luck..haha! London was freaking cold and Switzerland was sooo hot you wouldn’t believe. I agree with you abt switzerland..you can take pics from a cell cam and they’d still look like picture postcards …AMAZING!!! And ya, every night in diff hotel rooms was spent charging camera batteries…freaking hilarious :)

Reply

Peachesandblush July 11, 2012 at 11:22 am
