All You Need is Good Health

I love trying new things! Adding a belt to this outfit was like a very last minute decision before heading out! Guess it was not that a bad decision.. What say?

Anyhow.. let me give you all the update on my fitness journey. Even on vacation, I am working out with full force. I am eating the right thing, in the right quantity and at the right time (which surprisingly is more important than working out, trust me)! I have yet not weighed myself on a scale because I feel that is not how your progress should be tracked.

I feel different. My clothes fit differently. I am down by a size or two (I think). And I am always charged with super high levels of energy! Now that is the kind of change you should be looking for, in order to track how far you have come! So my dear readers, it’s never too late. Start working out if you haven’t already. Start eating better if you haven’t already. This is more important than everything else! More than your love life, more than your professional life and more than any other possible kind of life! Remember – If there is no health, there is no use of all that wealth!

Have fun with your workouts. Cheers!

How to Style Peplum

Sometimes taking the ‘over-sized’ route is a GREAT idea. It can do wonders to your look. Don’t worry about the size or the extra fabric. Just learn to play with it.. and enjoy it. I managed to pen down a few super easy styling tips with regards to Peplum –

  • Cinch it for that ‘slim waist’ definition! Orrrr.. just let it hang and swing. Enjoy the room and the extra comfort 🙂
  • Balance out the proportions. Wear something form-fitting underneath. Kind of like a bodycon skirt (like I did here) or skinny pants or leggings (check this previous post of mine)!
  • Wear nice heels or flats depending on your comfort level (both look good actually). I prefer heels though!
  • Try to stay away from sneakers. Personally, I don’t like dressing up a Peplum top with sneakers/sport shoes.
  • Accessorize – You may wear a big belt or a nice scarf. Or even both! Just try not to over-do it.
  • Wear nice statement jewelry if you can! It usually brings out the dressed up look more.. I am personally biased towards statement earrings! How about you??

Oh and please don’t hesitate to add more to the list! I look forward to hear how you like to style your Peplum tops and dresses.

P.S. Remember when I bought this smock dress two sizes big. TOTALLY worth it!! Well I did the same mistake thing again. I bought this lovely Peplum top one size big and man I love the print and style!
