Street Style Spotlight: Saili Palyekar aka The Petite Diaries
Why wait for fashion week to stalk all your favourite street style mavens? These fashionistas are just as stylish on a normal day too. We at Hauterfly are always scouting for some style inspiration. And who better than our real girls to show us how it’s done? In our all-new series called Street Style Spotlight, we showcase real people with real style. These ladies are boss ladies in their own way, and do everything (yes, even run errands!) with oodles of style.
Meet Saili Palyekar, a graphic design student, a fashion enthusiast and dancer. We met Saili at fashion week and instantly felt the need to stalk her for her cool Parisian-chic-meets-street-style look. Her everyday OOTDs involve scarves, vintage sunnies and oodles of sass. And her Instagram or as she likes to call it, her insta-blog is no short of inspiration with a feed that serves some serious goals. Read below as we got Saili to spill the beans on her style statement.
