Hi Girliess! 🙂
I am here today with my new Outfit post from Shimla! I spent my weekend at the Queen of Hills- Shimla. With winters arriving soon, I was excited to do this post as I am a total winter breeze lover! The weather is Shimla was totally awesome…a lot cooler than Delhi. Every time I go there I never want to come back. This is not just because of the cool climate, but also because of the warmth of the people living there. 🙂
I stayed at two properties in Shimla. Day 1 we were at Oberoi Cecil. The plus points of staying there included the nice spa, indoor heated swimming pool, beautiful restaurant, English-styled lobby, a large activity center for both adults and kids, and the courteous staff. However the biggest negative point was that it was far off from the Mall Road. It took 30 minutes to reach there walking, and the road was too isolated and seemed unsafe at night. Cecil is a mini version of Oberoi’s Wildflower Hall which is also very child friendly. The next day we stayed closer to the Mall at the Marina. It is a new construction. So the rooms were much better. The service and food is very prompt and good. Though it was not as high-end hotel, but it was a great experience being there.
Coming to my OOTD, I am sharing with you what I wore at Shimla. A cape is a good replacement to the coat or a shawl. Also it was well-suited to the cold weather, but not too chilly. This cape is made of pure sheep wool from New Zealand, and is beautiful, light, soft, durable and incredibly warm. The hollow fibres of the Possum fur is the key to their extreme warmth and the garments from Merimonk New Zealand are luxurious to wear, anti-static and non-pilling. I paired it with a pair of jeggings, Nike sports shoes and easy to carry Bag-pack. I got this Cat-eye sunglasses from Dolce and Gabbana. The look is stylish yet comfortable.

So guys get your hands on one of the capes for winters. Capes have been there in summers as well as in ethnic wear. Being a piece of clothing actually borrowed from the winter wardrobe, it will stay in trend for a while now. Check out some cool (and warm!) capes here, here and here.
Have a great week ahead!
