Udai Vilas #1










Hey guys, hope y'all are doing well. I have finally settled down in my new place in NYC. It's just so magical, sometimes it gets hard to believe that I am even here. 
Work has been keeping me very busy, affecting my consistency with blogging. But no matter what, I'll still find out time to show you guys some cool inspirations. 

This is one of my posts from my visit to Udaipur, India. Where I went on a family vacation and all credits go to my lovely cousin who was kind enough to take my pictures there. Topping the outfit with one of my favourite shirts from Scotch & Soda with such a refreshing mint color, paired with shorts from All Saints and shoes from Prada. 

If you have any recommendations for cool places to visit in NYC, feel free to drop down a comment.

Warby Parker



For all those who have been following Mclavin Style from the beginning must have noticed that I absolutely love my sunglasses and more than that how they add detail to my outfits. Each one of them having their own character and playing them well on the blog.

Recently I discovered Warby Parker, an american brand for sunglasses who design design eyewear and sunglasses in-house, selling directly to consumers. The company designs frames with a very vintage-inspired style.

I have a very high eye power, wherein, I rely heavily on contacts. When I thought of purchasing prescription sunglasses, either they were too pricey or not available in my desired design. However, Warby Parker makes it easy for its consumers to order and purchase prescribed eyeglasses and sunglasses online. They even offer trying their glasses at home for free.

One of many facets of the brand is its CSR initiative where each pair of glasses sold, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need in the US or developing world.

The brand is almost 4 years old and has grown remarkably well since its start. It has also been praised by fashion publications ELLE, GQ, Esquire, Vogue and others.

They recently launched their 2 new collections:

The Beacon Collection


For Beacon, they were inspired by impromptu, can’t-duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities. We designed our newest line of frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between. 
Above are my top 3 favorites from The Beacon. Starting with 1. McKee - Moonstone (Women), 2. Ingram - Tiger Tortoise (Unisex) and 3. Garrett - Blue Slate Fade (Unisex). 

For more designs for this collection please visit this link The Beacon 


The Waterway Collection

When creating the Waterway Collection they took five of their favorite silhouettes for a quick dip, and they're more refreshing than ever-- their color palette inspired by warm coastal travels and landlocked stay-cations by the pool.
Above are my top 3 favorites from The Waterway. Starting with 1. Percey - Crystal (Unisex), 2. Piper - Sand Castle (Women) and 3. Bensen - Blue Slate Fade (Unisex).

Hope you enjoyed.

#GetHealthy with Mclavin Style



Hey guys, this is my very first posts on fitness. A start of a new chapter and an exciting journey on Mclavin Style as I leave for New York this morning to begin my one year placement, I will be posting regular updates on Instagram as well. Also a good change for me and you from fashion and focusing on a very important topic in our everyday lives. We all want to look great and feel fresh, therefore, I'd like to share with y'all a few tips to incorporate in your life for not just having a great body but to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Beginning with:

1. Breakfast



According to me the most important meal of the day, I believe in having a super heavy breakfast with a mix of oats, eggs, peanut butter, toast etc. basically for me the list never ends Haa. Studies also reveal that individuals who eat a substantial amount of breakfast lose more weight than those have a small breakfast. 

2. Water


Drinking lots of water removes fat by-products, reduces hunger, increases metabolism and has zero fat. Instead of drinking aerated drinks or canned juices, water is a better and healthy alternative. As our bodies are made up of 70% of water, staying hydrated is very important. 


3. Eating Protein-Rich Meals


Protein diets (Chicken, Eggs, Fish, Tofu) help in faster fat loss - over the short term. Such a diet brings in sharp transformation in the body, but if continued for a longer period the body gets used to the protein, leading to excess protein storage and causing the body to gain back the lost weight. To tackle this always keep a good mix of proteins, carbs and fats (say 45%, 35% and 20%). Proteins play an important role in cell growth and generation which lead to glowing skin, healthy hair and strong muscles. 

4. Eat a Rainbow


Colours add charm to life and they do the same to your body. Try consuming various kinds of fruits and vegetables of different colours as each one of them has their own nutrient. Following this would relieve you of the stress whether you consume the right or wrong thing as you will be consuming minerals, vitamins and nutrients your body might require.

5. Rest




To allow the body to build muscle tissue, rest and recovery is essential. Studies reveal that an ideal sleep for most should be anywhere between 6-8 hours. While resting the energy consumption is lowered, allowing the body to use the high-quality food we eat during the day to efficiently build muscle. So make sure you get that right sleep, cause at the end of a busy day, even a lion needs to rest.


Hope y'all enjoyed.

McLavin Style X Mr. Singh Style




Really nice to be back home after a stressful week in UK. Also got some great stuff coming up on the blog soon. 
I wanna introduce y'all to my really good friend Shabeg Singh from Mr. Singh Style who I collaborated with for this post. I've known Shabeg for quite a long time, he recently started his personal style blog to share his zeal for fashion and has had a remarkable journey till now and I hope the same for the future. His style is a very good mix of colors and prints, apart from that the guy dresses up soothingly smart. He's also on Instagram @Mrsinghstyle so feel free to have a quick look. He's currently pursuing Business Management at Monash University in Melbourne. Cheeky fact about this lad: He's quite popular at uni as a professional Bhangra dancer and a fashion blogger. 

Summers are quite long and hot in Delhi, therefore I prefer to tackle it by styling myself with light colors during the day as they reflect heat compared to darker colors. Chinos seemed a better option than denim, wherein I chose to sport these olive colored ones, which went quite well with a simple printed shirt and brown shoes. 

What's your summer wardrobe look like?
