Summer Essentials: White!

Pastels | Everybody, Everywear

You don't know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

When I was going through a break up some two years back, I remember quite a few people telling me ‘I don’t know how you’re going through this. I would have never been able to do this’ They said it unintentionally of course without a hint that it was making me feel worse. I hated hearing these words. Like really, I didn’t choose to go through this! It’s like I could hear them say ‘Thank God I don’t have to go through this!’ or worse, ‘See how rosy my life is right now!’ I struggled to explain to them that if, God forbid, you had to go through this, you would have, because there is no other option. What other choice do you have than go through it, tell me? Please don’t tell me killing yourself is an option! You could sit in a room and cry for days but in the end you have to move on with your life. Yes, now it really depends on you to take it in your stride or not. I think we human beings are built in such a way that we can deal with a lot of shit. Don’t we all at some point put on our best smile even when our mind is in a turmoil? That is strength too. You have no idea how much strength you possess. So, when you are going through a rough patch, remember you have the strength to deal with it, 'kay? And please, next time before you go ‘How are you dealing with this..I would never have been able to’, think again.

 We can't go through summer without white, no? This pale white top is so girly I just had to buy it. And since I cannot do without colours, I've added the red wedges, floral clutch and yellow neckpiece! Honestly, the outfit looked much better in my head!

Top- A J Store (Rs 450)
Pants- Bossini (Rs 1300-ish)
Clutch- Shoppers' Stop (Rs 1100)
Neckpiece- Gifted
Wedges- Lady Gaga, Kolkata (Rs 650 on sale)

  4. When I was going through a break-up myself, I remember reading that quote somewhere. It changed me & the way I dealt with things. Because even though I thought I was not strong enough to manage my life, somehow I would get through that.

    And your shirt is so girly & pretty!
