Concrete Jungle


What I love about the freelancing and semi-joblessness is the midweek getaways, even if it really is for a day, or two. It's not like I need a vacation, because currently my life feels like one already without the picturesque views and touristic attractions and holiday shopping, because I'm up at nights as late as I want to, without the worries of waking up and going to shoots or an office (unless of course I'm actually shooting the next day) and I easily wake up just before noon, much to the annoyance of my mom, but that's a normal day. And then on some days, there are small mini getaways like this particular day.

The excuses to get away never truly end. Here we went to check out a friend's new place in Pune and while some time away. So here's what the afternoon and early evening looked like - us lounging on fancy barcaloungers a la Joey and Chandler style (someone even managed to fall off a while later, but I won't name the person), listening to music, exploring the still vacant but hugely spacious apartment, sipping on drinks and some played video games while I was glued to my book. And as I gazed out mid read, I saw the setting sun and jumped and said we should shoot and not waste this whole golden hour. So minutes later, I stepped into my shoes and added a dash of lipstick while my photographers (all three of them) got ready to shoot. Most of the images uploaded here are taken from camera 2 while I was "posing" for camera 1 because I'm really not used to having so many trained on me at a shoot!

Since this was right after our drive from Mumbai to Pune, I was dressed up for it. From my new Levi's 501CT, which by the way, I picked the anti-fit/oversized or as they called it the up sized version as compared to true-fit which I would usually pick and I paired it with even more loose silhouettes like an oversized tank tee and a kimono style floral jacket. I always test my outfits prior road trip outfits, because I'm usually always the one in the back seat, sleeping, and if luck is with me and I have no one to share the space with, I'll be fully sprawled across the seat, sleeping/listening to music/reading a book - and hence my clothes just have to be comfortable and I usually pick leggings or joggers, but the Levi's denims were a dream pair.
