Isn't it been a tradition that I start my summers with boho vibes. Sometimes quite very coincidentally and on the fly. This time hasn't been different. I love these boho pieces and I always have at-least one piece in my wardrobe. The quest for these pieces is very minimal yet little important for me since i find them very interesting. Now this piece is from "Astha and Siddarth" label. I love the whole set of pieces from them and they are very much cotton , comfortable and ambient.
I have combined this boho piece with a patched crop top from "papaya clothing" and a black vintage skirt from " Forever 21" and a pair of black boots from "Express". Let this summers be very vibrant and let us wear bright clothes to have some wonderful beach moments. Check out " Ans Astha and Siddarth " label for similar boho capes and prints. Keep reading "The Chic Iconic ". I will updating this space with more lifestyle related posts and videos. Since most of you requested things related to day to day life , I will be working more towards the lifestyle genre.

Winters are here and our skin is prone to extreme changes. Dryness, irritation, Redness, Frost bites due to snow etc. I have been experiencing extreme cold winters and minus temperatures here in Virginia. So its time to up my winter skin care game. I have associated with "Himalaya Winter Care" to bring their winter products that helped me keep my skin healthy for ages to you guys. You guys might have heard the term herbal from you moms and grand moms , I so got used to them and my skin feels secure with these products . Thanks to Himalaya for bringing us with more and more herbal products for hair , skin moisturizing and anti-aging. Over years they have won trust and most Asian women feel secure with Himalaya Herbal products. Below are the 5 Tips for winter skin care routine that will help you keep your skin safe in winters.
1. Wash your skin with Luke warm water:
Hot showers are everybody's favorite in winters. But washing off your face and body with extreme hot water may strip off essential oils and lead to extreme dryness. Instead use luke warm water to wash and protect your skin from losing elasticity.
2. Moisturize Immediately:
Your skin needs to be moisturized within 2 or 3 minutes of shower. Moisturizing damp skin helps to seal the dampness and keeps it moisturized. Always keep your face and body moisturizers in the shower racks and on top of the sink. Very important tip is that your neck is as important as your face and you need to moisturize neck all time since the skin there is very thin. The Himalaya light and non greasy nourishing skin cream has become my staple face moisturizer. It is a combination of Indian Kino Tree, Aloe Vera and Winter Cherry. Its mild fragrance helps me sooth my skin and mood.
3. Change your moisturizers for Winters:
Most of the moisturizers contain petroleum products which might lead to more dryness in winters. Make sure you do not choose products with the petroleum ingredients. Cocoa butter keeps your skin moisturized in winters. The Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intense body lotion is what I would suggest if you love herbal products.
4. Lip care in Winters :
I often keep switching my lip cares , but I stick to coconut oil in the nights to keep my lips moisturized. I always carry aquaphor when I travel to cold places. But when I am on the run in day to day life or in a hurry for meetings I never forget my Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip moisturizer with semi tint.
5. Hydrate your body very often:
Not only moisturizing the body from outside but also moisturizing from within is also very important. We often tend to drink less water in winters and switch to hot drinks. But its important to have lots of water to cleanse your body from any toxins that can instigate allergies. A glass of luke warm water with lemon and honey is a superb work around for hydration.
I hope you guys are having a wonderful 2018 though its chilling outside. This month it is all about skin care on the blog. Keep reading and pour your love. Please email me about any queries to email@example.com.

The tricky winters might trick you so much so that you tend to choose dull color palletes from your wardrobe. Or it could be the other way round where you jump into prompt shopping when you are heading out for a visual treat in winter. Either of them are a complete no - no to me. I never burn my pockets to look jazz in winters , instead I work on choosing the perfect color splash to block the winter twilights. I work very carefully on my wardrobe choices during the times that I think can push me to indecisiveness. I prefer not to run around shopping malls tiring myself with over whelming choices. The best thing in my observation is to spend some time running through my wardrobe to pick up a color mix that works better for me to capture perfect frames.
For this project , I chose two brands that never made me regret for any of my outfit choices in the previous experiences. "Recycling" , Yes recycling your wardrobe in a quite very smart way is not an art but some times a spur of the moment beauty. I often keep myself in that space and enjoy the outcomes. The two brands that I worked on are " Sheinofficial" and "Forever21". If you are a frequent shopper at Forever21 you might have mastered their bright colors. Two looks that are carefully choosen for this post are not any different or exceptional but for me they are just perfect choices anybody could make to brighten up your dark winters.
In the look 1, I have chosen a burgundy sweater from sheinofficial and a black velvet skirt from forever21 which were a part of my wardrobe since last year and I have fallen in love ever since. They look perfect in the hidden sun that throws divine light in winters. And the snow in the background just compliments!.
In the Look 2, I have chosen a red skater dress from forever21 and threw a bright yellow bell sleeve top that perfectly complimented. Reds ain't for summers , they work magic in winters with the white snow in the background. The bright yellow at first might make you feel like you have made a loud choice , but it isn't. Loud is the new cool in winter. If you are an insta freak or a picture lover they do magic in your gallery.
That's it for the winter lookbook guys. I sure will come up with new looks in the winter and I thank these brands for helping me curate my perfect winter looks.
Happy Holidays my dear beautiful readers. Thanks a lot for all the lovely emails and enquiries on the outfits. I promise to keep up with extending the support to provide the answers to all your questions and will continue to help with choosing the perfect brands.

This winter's dramatic fluctuation in weather is trying to make me a couch potato. Yet I keep myself on toes this season. Since fatigue is what keeps me unhappy . Winter's wardrobe essentials and never ending winter shopping is tiring. I would want to avoid doing that constantly. Reusing your summer wardrobe is not a whole new different or unexplored tangent. But let me remind you that out and out summer wardrobe can be used or recycled to covert them into winter wardrobe.
We have all been at that phase where we never wanted to reuse those outfits that are photographed already once. But that is not a solution to sport different looks. Playing with your personal style and curating different looks with the same outfits is a fun task and you will enjoy doing it. This time I chose my suspenders from my wardrobe which are my favorite summer chic #ootds and converted them to use as my winter #ootds. Layering is the interesting part in winter , so let us layer our summer outfits in winter. I felt my suspenders aren't just for summer , I would enjoy wearing them even in winter. So i have Paired them up with a set of thermal pants and a full sleeve tee shirt unlike I do short sleeves or no sleeves in summer.
If you have similar outfits in your summer wardrobe do not scare away from reusing them. Below are the two looks with suspenders. I get inspired by recyclable fashion and blur my boundaries and strike off the statements to sport some fun looks by season. Experimenting with fashion brings out the best personal style , so do not stop experimenting this season.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. I will get back with another interesting post soon.

The December month is here. And I am personally a December lover, Since it is my birthday month as well as the month I tied a knot. Love spills and surprises all this month keep me hydrated with happiness. So this month I have decided to document all my winter looks for you guys. Ever Since I have turned my blog into a monthly journal emails came pouring in to write for different topics. I am catching up the speed to accommodate all the topic requests.
If you follow me on Instagram , You already know that I love minimalist fashion and style. Writing about affordable and accessible styles has been the agenda since day one on The Chic Iconic, even though I treat myself with occasional gifts and luxury brands.This time I chose to give myself a recyclable winter look along with providing some tips to you guys about how I repeat my summer wardrobe to style my winter.
Below is what I will be doing for most of this winters.
1. Pull out all my shirt dresses which are above my knee length from the wardrobe.
2. Pair them up with stockings , jeans or leggings.
3. Turning my casual look to formal or party look , I will be adding some shine/glitter in the form of accessories like gold strapped watch or earrings or an evening clutch.
4. Providing an accent to the whole outfit pairing up with a pop color. Can be either a bomber jacket or a winter coat in color pop.
The below Forest Green shirt dress is from Express and most of my shirt dresses are from Express. So this season if you have few pieces of shirt dresses in the wardrobe pull them out and reuse.
Keep following me on Instagram for everyday style files , lifestyle updates and daily perks. This winter look book series will be continued until the end of December. So keep watching this space for more looks this winter.

The Spa is very vast that it can accommodate 70-100 customers at a time each and every member of the staff never forgets to give you a very welcoming smile.
It is very much a package when it is more than a nail spa and provide additional spas services in one place. You can find the different kinds of services they provide at their website : www.anthonyvincenailspa.com/. Today the services I have chosen are the " Royal Hot Stone Spa Pedicure" - pampers your tired feet with ultimate spa experience with an extended lower leg and foot massage. They use warm smooth rocks to gently loosen your stiff muscles and that is my favorite part , as i am personally a fan of hot stone massages. And further warm oil massage and hot towel wrap is the final touch of luxurious experience. For manicure I have chosen their " No-chip gel nail polish" service and "mai" has done a wonderful job on my nails providing a soothing massage with creams.
