The Smitten Story


Over the past week, the blog has featured a story about the two things I love the most: travel and shoes. This story is one that is very close to my heart. Be it The Wanderer or The Chic Traveler, it encompassed everything I associate with travel.

When we started work on the post, we had little ideas running all through our heads. As we set out to shoot, they evolved and grew into something a lot bigger. We were slowly going over the top with implementing our ideas because it was simply so much fun! That’s what brings me to introduce - my very first editorial post!

I think the pictures do all the talking so I’ll keep the post short (or try to at least!) Ending The Smitten Story with this seemed more than ideal. Ever since their first flea market, I have been shopping  at this lovely little shoe store. It’s their variety in styles, constant updates in collection, affordable prices as well as quality of shoes that make me keep going back! The name of the store literally means 'struck by love' and believe me that’s how you’ll feel when you enter their store in Indiranagar, Bangalore. It’s also lovely to see that a brand I love so much has even expanded to Hyderabad very recently. Yay! More shoes for everyone!

I hope my two stories brought out the all travel inspiration that I had planned to portray. From travel hacks with respect to packing to how to style your shoes on those long trips away from home, I loved sharing the stories behind my travels. 

Drop in to their store or place your orders via the Smitten Facebook page (click here). I hope you enjoyed this post!
