Of Blankets & Bows !

Asos poncho – more options : 1//2  , Old Navy Jeans ( On sale for $19 now ! ) , Asos Booties , Betsey Johnson Clutch
Its been a busy last couple of days – at work and otherwise. Sometimes, I wish I could stay afloat on 2 hrs of sleep –  could really use the extra time you know 🙂 My dad constantly reminds me that all great men also had 24 hrs in a day! Well – may be I am not fighting for world peace or running for office ( yet ! ) . But even in my own little world  – there is always so much to do and so little time 🙁  Haven’t you have felt the same at some point ? 

When I saw this poncho online – I  instantly knew I had to get it ! 
A warm fuzzy blanket-like-sweater AND with a bow ? Yes Please! 🙂  I think everyone should invest in a poncho. Throw it over a plain/old top and you get the essential chicness with a side of effortless comfort 🙂 Perfect for Fall ! 

On a side and very important note – the Saks Friends&Family Sale is On.  It is THE sale of the year … watch these pages for my picks and lust list !

I blame the stores for sending me tons of swoon-worthy emails about sales and look-books seducing me to be  ready for the holidays. Did you ever internally justify to yourself about going over budget because – “well.. its the holiday season”.. or ..”I deserve this” … or my personal favorite ” it would be plain foolish to leave it at this price” 🙂 Now –  its even more silly if you don’t try your hand at winning a beautiful necklace ( of your choice ! )  from Our Wold Boutique’s collection !

Doing Red


Laundry by Shelli Segal dress, Our World Boutique necklace – C\o , India Trend earrings – C\o , Shoes old – similar , Prada wristlet, Swarovski bracelet (one of my fav gifts 🙂 )

Nothing says festive like red. I picked this dress from Saks last time we were there shopping for my hubby but somehow ended up in the women’s department – its a mystery how that invariably happens every time 🙂 The fit is very flattering and love the monochromatic base so I can play with accessories. This necklace is one of my favorites and I see it pairing beautifully with most of my dresses.

This weekend we celebrated my husband’s birthday with some close friends at a wonderful middle-eastern restaurant in Boston that hosts a live band a belly dancing performance. By the end of the night, we had spent more time on the dance floor than the belly dancer herself 🙂 In the afternoon, we decided to grab lunch and picnic around our favorite pond. ( the weather here has been gorgeous lately!) Enroute, a wrong turn brought us in  front of a facade covered with fall wreaths and dangling intertwined leaves and flowers. We decided to take a quick peek inside and saw a garden that could only be out of a dream sequence.Fountains,small foot bridges, a romantic dome, two little girls running around in their blond braids, an older couple sitting on the bench holding hands…this was the romantic-lose-yourself-to-the-universe cliché that I had only read in books . It reminded me of Paris – so serene and surreal. I am glad we lost our way and found this beautiful gem( totally believe that things happen for a reason)
