Monday mornings aren’t as bad when your better half drops by for a surprise visit!

And look whose visiting… 😘

Canvas Queen

Maybe because I’m all loved up, but I’m just going to put this out there: Louboutins are the bad boy you fixate on in your 20s, a pair of sneakers are the nice guys you’ve always been comfortable around, had fun with, and want to take home to meet the parents.

Don’t believe us? Ask this Japanese superstar Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, she knows how to talk to her shoes. (We’re making eyes at those Adidas Originals though, so she’d better watch out.)

This is the kinda guy who, when you realise he’s the one, will make you suddenly shy and unable to converse. As you can see, Neha has found her solemate in canvas.

She got over the reserve pretty quickly though. (That’s why we love her!)

Styling tip: When in doubt, bring the canvas shoes out. Whatever else you’re wearing – from tux to aztec table clothes – tie up the look with an out-of-bed messy ponytail. 

Neha is wearing a dress by Arti Vijayvarge. The shoes are her own.

Zebra stripes crossing


I love the simplicity of black and white. And lately, designers have been using monochrome as a backdrop for the craziest and most fun pattern play.


Stylists lip: Abstract zebra prints and big gold jewellry will bring out the sexy beast in anyone. Do it, for the love of disco! 

Neha’s outfit by is Zara. Her jewellry is by Mrinalini Chandra.

All looks are styled by Chief pyjama aka Sohaya Misra aka Chola the Bhola. Makeup is done by Angeline Joseph.

We want to give a shout out to our very special Pyjama-grapher Shoeb Mashadi! You can see more of his work (and more of his interesting selection of PJs) on his Instagram.
