The last few months of the year have arrived… and has brought the best time; the festive quarter. Three months of customs, celebrations and dressing up fun.

We girls need just one reason to dress up, however we are offered many in these months … Navratri, Karwa Chauth, Dusshera, Dhan Teras, Lakshmi Puja and Diwali. And so the hunt for the best outfits, the best accessories and also the best gifts begin. Sometimes it does get a bit difficult to find the perfect matches, but not anymore. Forget the crazy queues outside the trial rooms, forget being pushed around the store, and forget checking ten stores to find an outfit that makes you look like a star; shop from the comfort of your home through a miracle store that everyone knows about, Jabong

Jabong is a one-stop online heaven for all your fashion and lifestyle needs. The online store aims at offering a hassle-free shopping experience to shoppers with its wide range of products and brands. The only glitch is the amazing number of products in all the price ranges that make it extremely difficult to choose just a few products when you practically want to buy the entire store. As I looked through the amazing collection, I kept adding onto the cart and then had to keep picking one product over the other. I knew instantly that I wanted two definite looks as different from each other as day and night. 

I know as a mother, wife and most important as a daughter-in-law during the festive times there is so much that will be expected of me during the day; from decorating, cooking to serving and entertaining and last minute emergency tasks. So my outfit for the day needs to be fuss free while being being beautiful and elegant. As I first started browsing I also kept in mind the weather in my city and zeroed in on the sea green Khaadi Embroidered Pant-Kurta; a perfect cotton-silk outfit to keep cool with the sun blazing down my back. Ditching the traditional Churidar Kurta, I added a twist of the Pant-Kurta to experiment this Diwali. The beauty of the intricate embroidery design on the kurta warrants delicate silver accessories and a rush of colour with a ochre tote bag. On the make up front I'd like to wear my hair in side swept curls and go bold on the lips and keep the eyes muted. 

While putting together an evening look I'd keep away from the conventional saree, as I want a look that is fun and different. The Mahotsav Floral Cream Lehengas Choli will be perfect for my evening look; it is colorful, fun and gorgeous. I’d love to style it with statement earrings and maybe a cocktail ring and golden slip-ons from Dune London. I would prefer to under-style the outfit and let it speak for itself. Depending on my mood I would like to either let my hair loose or pull it up onto a high bun to give myself a composed look. And on make up front I'd love to mute my lips with a nude lipshine and go dramatic with the eyes. 

I've gone #traditionmyway this festive season with a twist in the clothing however I've stayed with the traditional colour family of red and green, auspicious colours aren't they? What do you think of my looks? What styles and colours do you want to flaunt during the festive season?
