Nothing like being overdressed … or may be there is ? :)

Friday evening – the hubs texted me that he was going to be late from work but asked me to be ready by the time he got home . The gear in my head instantly shifted to “date-night-dressup-mode” ! I was ready waiting with the camera (for him to get to his job as my personal photographer ūüôā ) when he got home.He warned me that I might a “bit” overdressed for where we were going and my smirkish response was – there’s nothing like too rich or too dressed-up !

Well – I ate my words when we drove into a drive-in theater #feelingfoolish
Imagine everyone sprawled on lawn chairs or lounging in their cars Рin PJs and here I was in my stilettos #superangry 
But the big screen , pizza , beer , the convertible top down was all so magical that I hardly cared about anything while I curled up on the seat and ended up watching a movie and a half ūüôā Damn – he even got blankets ! It was THE perfect cliched date night where we watched movies under the stars ūüôā #smitten

Today marks the beginning of a 10 day Indian festival which is in full swing at my home back in Bombay. Needless to say – I am terribly homesick. Need some much needed love and affection this way !! ūüôĀ

Have a fabulous week everyone !!




For the love of summer

Labor day weekend is here and I am having mixed feelings. It’s ¬†about time to bid adieu to my beloved summer but at the same time,embrace the beautiful colors of fall. It’ll soon be time for the scarves and the boots to be dusted off and awaken from their slumber and also an eagerly awaited time when Starbucks flavors will transition from green tea lemonades to spiced pumpkin lattes !
Before I bring out those chunky sweaters and¬†woolen¬†skirts out , let me play some more with floral and flowy dresses – I still need time to have my romantic¬†moment¬†with my colorful summer outfits ūüôā

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.

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 !!
