This weekend,  my husband and I caught up on a lot of fun things. I was glad that we dint have anything pressing on the weekend agenda. Friday night, we headed to the north end in Boston, the “mecca” of Italian food. Saturday morning, we went to the city for ummm.. well nothing 🙂  – sometimes I just crave for the feeling of  “dolce niente” – the pleasure of idling around. It was a windy morning and I got to take my favorite trench out. I absolutely love its bright orange color. A trench is such a classic piece, I think, every girl should invest in one. 

Saturday night was a fun disco-themed night with some friends and this morning we stepped out to buy Christmas decorations for the tree and our small yard – I always feel like a kid in a candy store when we go shopping for Christmas ornaments and want to get everything they have in the store 🙂 Have you guys started shopping for Christmas yet ?

Hope each one you had a great weekend ! xo

Giving Thanks

I have a soft spot for monogrammed things.Monogrammed/personalized gifts are a fabulous idea for the holidays. They add a personal touch that makes the price irrelevant and makes your present exclusive. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I wanted to give thanks to a few people who have supported my 4 month old blog journey so far. I’ve received so much love – love in the form of appreciation and encouragement. Love in the form of ideas, collaborations and features. It absolutely makes my day when  someone sends me a note saying they can easily relate to me. Or when someone tells me that my tidbits helped them plan an outfit. Every comment  solidifies my want to keep writing on these pages. I got these personalized cards made that I am planning to send to all the beautiful women and the stores that collaborated with me on the blog.

One of the best decisions we made was to have our picture on the wedding invitation. It added intimacy and warmth to our invitation. Besides, we always keep these monogrammed cards handy – they are great tandems with gifts no matter what occasion.

Most of all, I want to thank all of you for taking the time to read what I have to say –
 that means the world to me – Thank You 🙂

Oversized Sweaters

Big, baggy, oversized clothing might not be everybody’s cup of tea – but lets be honest – is there anyone who loves being in form fitting, body con dresses all the time ? Well, I absolutely love bundling up in oversized clothes – like you’ve seen me here ! At the risk of sounding thrifty – I prefer wearing my brother’s hand me downs to the gym instead of wearing the “body skimming – moisture wicking” gear. It gives me a lot of room to breathe ( and sweat ! ) Even at home – you’ll see me sprawled over the bed reading a book in my husband’s shirts.  I can use all the extra room to hide the traces of overeating I do on weekends **blush**. Oversized sweaters are a rage every sweater season – they are great for layering – can be  pulled over tanks, shirts, dresses & they look great with skinnies, leather pants, skirts shorts .. basically most of the stuff from your closet. I get a lot of wear out of my oversized (and clearly my brother’s & husband’s) clothing for sure 🙂

Back to basics for 9 to 5

Mornings during this transitional seasons can be such chores ! I cannot find a legitimate reason to leave the warm comfort of my bed. And then ofcourse, there isn’t enough time to get ready for work. I don’t know how my friends and colleagues who have kids – get the kids ready for school and still manage to look radiantly put-together when they come to work. They must have super powers ! As for me –  I have a dress-up formula for such guilty mornings 🙂 A simple blouse , skirt, throw on a pair of tights and add some booties to the mix. The best thing about such basic pieces is that if you repeat a piece in the same week and pair it with another basic piece – chances are , no one would even notice the repeat telecast 🙂

Hope everyone had a great start of the week. The festival of Diwali began this weekend and I am in a desert-coma.  I feel like I’ve fulfilled my quota for the rest of the year ( and the next one ) in these 2 days 🙂
