Once upon a time, there was a girl and a boy who made each other very happy. One day, he asked her if she would be his

 forever ! Her answer resonated with the innocence and simplicity of his question – Let’s Do It !

She did not need a ring, he did not have to go down on one knee – 
all she needed was the confidence in his eyes and all he needed was her by his side. 
Last week , I spotted this intriguing mesh of barren trees that stood amidst the snow fallen on the ground. It has been mind-numbingly cold here and that day was no different ( 5F ! ) I wanted to take him with me and knew it would need some real convincing to get him out for that hike. I asked him if he was up for it –  surprisingly all he said was – Let’s Do It –
 just like the way I said it 2 years back !

There are times when we think too much about things, about the consequences, about the what-ifs ! Sometimes the answer is to just do it, take a risk and enjoy what spontaneity has to offer. Chances are you’ll love that you took 

the plunge or atleast learn from it. 

 Do that one thing today, that you have been thinking about too much  – ask him out –  put that business idea into action – let them know you don’t agree with their decision – take that class you always wanted to take – 
mix unexpected colors in your outfit ! Do It !

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

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 🙂

Cropped Skinnies and a personalized necklace giveaway

Finding the perfect pair of jeans might as well be a myth. Those long hours and a million tryouts in the dressing rooms almost make me not wanna buy any 🙁
In all honesty , you’ll rarely see me strutting down town in pair of jeans and if I am donning them – most often than not its cropped skinnies. For petite girls, it is imperative that we master those tricks that create a mirage of a few extra inches like – high heels, structured blazers over cropped bottoms or vertical stripes.
