Skirting around in the SKORT

This cute little confused outfit  (am I a skirt – or a pair of shorts ),known as the skort –  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 – pretty sure they were made keeping own-any-look in mind ! 

Dont forget that smile 🙂 It goes with everything !!

Dancing in the rain

The summer in Boston , has been nothing but a seesaw of heat waves & downpours !!

One thing I’ve learnt about Boston in my 8 years of living here – if you don’t like the weather – wait a minute – coz its gonna change 🙂

Yesterday was one of those beautiful rainy days –  pouring non-stop and yet bright and sunny ! All I wanted to do after coming home from work was – go outside , get wet and play in the muddy puddles around our house 🙂

Rains to me,have always been synonymous with a cuppa-hot-tea,good book ,romantic long drives, shared umbrellas&  dancing 🙂One of my friend refers to my Hunters as nothing but the glamorized version of the gum-boots (as fondly called in India) They do remind me of good-ole school days of innocence-pranks and playful naughtiness 🙂

Polka & Leather

I got this faux leather sheath dress from forever21 last year – but dint take it out much. This summer , when every thing leather in the world has been calling out my name, I couldn’t not bring this dress out.

I wore this dress to work and softened the look with a  polka blazer. Polka is so feminine and chic and sometimes I am such a girly girl – that I am easily drawn to even the slightest dash of polka. I love how the cute polka dots complement the don’t-mess-with-me-vibe of the black leather. I got this blazer and necklace from Forever21 as well – seriously what would I do without that store 🙂

These are my absolute favorite fall shoes – but I had to pair the white with the black on this gorgeous day and make this my yin-yan outfit !!

Now the bag , that actually belongs to my hubs – but don’t you think it really looks good on me 🙂
( The guy very cutely and quietly  keeps it out on the couch every once in a while so I can take it to work ..awww  <3)

Massachusetts Tax Free Weekend – Wish List

While some count the days to their birthdays, anniversaries or upcoming vacations – I can hardly wait for the MA tax free weekend. Infact, I block off the weekend months in advance & dedicate the day to playing my role as a good citizen. This is when I do my bit for the betterment of my state 🙂

This year, I have wayyy too many items on my wish list – some that I absolutely NEED and have been waiting for so desperately. And some I clearly cant afford – BUT a girl can dream, right? 🙂 

Note to self : There’ll always be something that you’ll want  – but stick to your budget – it gets painfully tempting! 🙁

Here are some of the things on my lust-slash-wish-slash-absoluetyneed-slash-havebeenwaitingforsincesolong-tax-free-weekend-list !

The MA tax-free weekend is on the 10th & 11th of August.Most things upto $2500 will be eligible for the 6.25% sales tax exemption.  
Do you have a wish list to fulfil this weekend?
