Enroute the soulful hill station of Shillong, our first halt was to be the Barapani lake. We had hit the beginning of the peak season and were keeping our fingers crossed that too many picnic parties don’t arrive before us. Having spent the previous day in Assam, it was no surprise that we yearned to shoot again amid nature at its pristine best.

The idea was to take the latest streetstyle into the woods and explore if the combination indeed works out photographically. Luckily, we spotted a trail less taken to Barapani about a kilometre before hitting the touristy spots by the lake (Thank you, my awesome friends, who also hold the photography credits.). That is how, instead of having a quintessential urban setup as the backdrop, I found myself strutting through the alpine woods and along the banks of the artful Barapani Lake..

After my tryst with the boats in Deepor Beel; this time we found a slippery tree trunk to be my throne for the day and the shutterbugs went on clicking from impossible angles. Yes, that involved a lot of tree climbing and balance testing.

So here is my summer look – casual white string pants with a racerback crop top from Forever21 and an amazing cape from AND Designs to finish the look. I find the near out-of-bed look quite amazing, dreamy even, in this setup… Hope you like the pictures as much as we enjoyed shooting them!

Getting there: Barapani (Umium Lake) is a 2-2.5 hours drive from Guwahati.

Also, don’t miss the flying cape look on instagram (my favoriteee- see below!). Until next time…


Fravel Along!
