O So Boho !

Summer in Boston seems to be slipping through our hands like sand. I want to hold on to every single minute of it because ,  soon the days wont be as long and definitely not even half as warm.

The one thing I absolutely love during summer is – walk up & down and up & down on Newbury street ( and ofcourse – in & out and in & out of stores 🙂 ) When in that area, I never skip stopping at the Trinity church, my fav place in Boston  !

 This skirt that I am wearing was originally a scarf in its previous life, which my mom had bought as a souvenir from her trip to Uzbekistan . She wasnt really using the scarf ( who needs a scarf in Bombay ! ) – so she suggsted I make a skirt out of it. ( Having a friend who owns a tailoring store defintely helps when you wanna give a new life to your scarves 🙂 )
This necklace also belongs to my mom – but somehow it found its way into my luggae all the way to Boston 🙂

Basic white tunic ( very old ) , ikat print skirt , chunky tribal necklace,  Michael Kors pumps ( similar here & here ) , Michael Kors tote (old ) , Tory burch earrings 

I just luvvve  the bohemian look – its unconventional , there are no trends to keep up with and no rules that have to be followed. Just a carefree , create and own your style kinda look !

Here are some options to create your own bohemian look !

Dresses like Mixed print maxi , Printed tunics ,Tribal skirts paired with basic tops , Plain skirts with cropped tops
Chunky Necklaces like this , this or this
Stacked Bangles or charm bracelts
Bags for extra swags  –  like this or this 


July Obsessions – Round Up !

Here are a few things in my closet that I am currently  super obsessed with  ! 🙂

What are some of the items that you are obsessed with this summer?

P.S: The things remembered necklace with our names engraved on it –  actually belongs to my hub. I had a similar ( better – see here  ! ) one that I lost a few weeks back 🙁 I had gotten it made at a fair long-long time back.. and its gone now . I am really hoping for a Carrie-Bradshawish-Dior-magic to happen and that the necklace would somehow come back to me 🙁 But till then – I am conveniently calling this necklace mine !

Bandana-it Up !!

Today was such a phenomenal day ! I went white water rafting in western Massachusetts with my man and a few of our close friends. The truth is , I was beyond terrified of doing this – because for one- I am not the best swimmer in the world and secondly, I had heard so many stories of people falling off the raft and getting carried away..blah blah..
But it is so rightly said – What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”

I am glad I did – because now I know,  I would have missed something just because of the fear in my head.
However, tbt- I did resort to a lot of  cheering-like-non-stop-screaming to mask my fear 🙂 

We had plans to go for lunch after our rafting trip. Since I knew , that I wouldn’t be getting a chance to wash my hair until I got home – 
I used a bandana to wrap my wet/entangled/all-over-the-place tresses.

Bandanas are not just for rockstars ! They can be used to create retro or rocker  looks very easily.
All you gotta do is –

  • fold the bandana ( or a handkerchief ) in a triangle or fold it until it its about 2-3″ wide
  • pull your hair back or twist into a bun or pull up a ponytail
  • wrap it around and tie a knot at the nape of your neck, or on top of your head in a bow 

You can  style your hair with bandanas especially when you don’t have time to wash it or are simply feeling lazy 🙂

Bandana- similar  (more options here& here ) , Burberry Top , Forever 21 shorts – similar  , Sperry Boat shoes , Tory Burch Bag – similar  , Things Remembered Engraved dog-tag , Forever 21 cuff – similar  , hoop earrings , Prada sunglasses

Playing with neons & pastels

Neons are THE COLORS of this season. 

Personally, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to try on something that was all neon. ( may be its because, for some stupid reason , I feel that neons just don’t go with my complexion … don’t pay attention to me 😐  )
Not wanting to go all in – I decided to try my neon-yellow skirt with something lighter. ( and I love it – isnt it fun when such small risks pay off 🙂 

I feel like its like moving along with the yin& the yang… where 2 pieces complement each other so well  – they make up a whole.

I am also wearing my two favorite pieces – the bird charm necklace ( aren’t all the charms dangling off it so cute ) and the very much in fashion earcuff  !

Neons and pastels are both a rage this season.. Try whipping out pieces from your closet and have fun with these palettes !
