Right from the haul in Janpath during college days in Delhi, to designer creations now, and to ALWAYS finding something you must have, there’s nothing not to love about this cool summer flats. It’s been a go-to for casual Indian outfits, denim-dos, for pretty much every off-duty occasions in summer, and has now gotten even closer to me with the collections We Desi by Aprajita Toor.
