One Month Blog Anniversary & A Fabulous Giveaway !!

It was the perfect weekend  ! On Friday Рmy man planned a wonderful date night at a Mexican restaurant by the Boston harbor and took me shopping next morning ! Post that, we went for an impromptu massage РI need to get more of those in my life!

Later that evening, a couple of us close friends went dancing. Seriously , what more does a girl need ? ūüôā

Its usually the outfit that comes first and then the accessories that I pick to merchandise it up !

In this case Рit was al contrario ! A beautiful pair of earrings from Lotus Blossom Design  influenced the rest of my outfit.
Pairing of gold with the orange simply launches the look from fun to fab ! I picked this  single-tone dress that gave me a canvas to paint with so many gold gongs .


Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend as well.

Fall Essentials – On a Budget !!

When I woke up this morning, I felt the crispness in the air. I looked out to see if the leaves had already started¬†falling & unconsciously¬†reached out for my comforter – ¬†it¬†definitely¬†was a sign of the fall taking over my beloved summer ūüôĀ

However, when the seasons change, they bring the prospect of changing wardrobes and I always seem to find enough solace in that – that there’ll be more reasons to shop! ūüôā

Some Fall Must-Haves that I plan to bring to my closet – best part – all under $50 ūüôā

Skirting around in the SKORT

This cute little confused outfit  (am I a skirt Рor a pair of shorts ),known as the skort Р as ridiculous as the name sounds, is more like a fashion invention !
Not really sure about the brains behind this design – may be it was ¬†“business in the front , carefree comfort in the back”:)

I first spotted these in the  Zara store at Heathrow airport and loved the architectural design.They had this sophisticated and flirty vibe and I absolutely had to get my hands on them !  
Pair them with baggy sweaters or chiffon tops. Don a blazer or a worn-down leather jacket Рpretty sure they were made keeping own-any-look in mind ! 

Dont forget that smile ūüôā It goes with everything !!

Dancing in the rain

The summer in Boston , has been nothing but a seesaw of heat waves & downpours !!

One thing I’ve learnt about Boston in my 8 years of living here – if you don’t like the weather – wait a minute – coz its gonna change ūüôā

Yesterday was one of those beautiful rainy days – ¬†pouring non-stop and yet bright and sunny ! All I wanted to do after coming home from work was – go outside , get wet and play in the muddy puddles around our house ūüôā

Rains to me,have always been synonymous with a cuppa-hot-tea,good book ,romantic¬†long drives, shared umbrellas& ¬†dancing ūüôāOne of my friend refers to my Hunters as nothing but the glamorized¬†version of the gum-boots (as fondly called in India) They do remind me of good-ole school days of innocence-pranks and playful naughtiness ūüôā
