JCrew Blazer – – similar 1//2//3, Zara skinnies
Lotus Blossom Design Boutique Earrings – c/o,Forever21 Top – similar 1//2,
Michael Kors pumps – similar 1//2, Prada sunnies

me {duh !} That’s what I love about tweed – makes you feel ultra sophisticated and classy. 
There’s another thing that I am in absolute love with currently – its my new beau bag
 that the mister got me this Christmas. I have been taking it everywhere with me since – to work, shopping, brunch with the girls and let me tell you –  it fiiiillls like a bottomless pit. Holds tons of stuff and I think it might be perfect to take on the flight as a carry-on as well.

Backpacking Checklist

A lot of people asked me how I packed 1 single bag for my 20 day trip. 
Honestly, if it wasn’t for the numerous backpacking blogs, travel forums and 
warnings from my husband & brother about abandoning me with my heavy bags if they were made to carry them , I would have been lugging down 2 heavy suitcases and may be 2 on my shoulders.It was no easy feat – trust me to take only the “bare” essentials. Tough decisions had to be made – choosing between black pumps and cant-live-without hair dyer – with both of them eventually losing . There are were atleast 3 iterations of the “final” packing. There was also a 10pm run ( 6 hrs before leaving for the airport) to buy a new backpack. 
Here are the not-so-secret contents of the backpack that I took with me.






It was more than just a vacation – it was about learnings, experiences, meeting people, making friends, and above all living  enjoying out of the comfort zone. I wasn’t thinking about what to wear, was unfazed by the bumpy bus rides cross countries, heck I wasn’t even concerned about showering !
There was a lot I loved – the dangerous hikes,the food, struggling past the language barriers, hitchhiking – but more than anything – what I enjoyed the most was the PEOPLE – seeing them on the streets no matter what time of day (or night) , chatting away all night with the locals  & the best of all – getting welcomed into their world. 
My advice – everyone should do one backing trip …atleast one … put that on your bucket list kids  🙂

Fur & First Snow

” Their times in nature usually held a secret surprise. It could be anything, really—
a rainbow touching the snow or heart-shaped shade cast by a pair of trees. Anything. 
Today, the gift was being outside the second it started to snow ” – Debra Anastasia



 
 


Mango leggings, Ralph Lauren Faux fur sweater ( Sold Out! )  – similar 1//2//3//4
( Alternatives :   Fur collars or scarves – 1//2//3 )
Kate Spade Bag, Asos Boots, Gucci Sunnies

The first snow of the season  always reminds me of my favorite movie – “love story”. 
As some sort of cue – Richard Clayderman starts playing in my head as I watch the snow fall outside the window.
The magic of the first snow will never be lost– I still feel the same excitement as it was 8 years back ,
 my first winter in Boston when I called home  and screamed into the phone ” ITS SNOWING, Mom” 🙂

This faux fur sweater is my new favourite and if you are following me on Instagram
you know that I have  been wearing it every day and with everything !
 The fur trimming is warm, comforting and I love snuggling  into it. 

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the first actual week of the year ..xo
