(Jump)suit Up!

IMG_6244I love the idea of a jumpsuit. When I say idea, I mean it seems to be an awfully comfortable looking onsie I can pull on, no matching or ensemble-making required and easy to dress up or down. But the reality is another thing – a well fitting jumpsuit needs to have just the right amount of ease, not give me muffin top and make me look like I am six feet tall- basically it needs to have magical super powers:P But since that is near impossible to find, I will make do with this black silk one!:) I kept the rest simple – earrings, low heels, and a leopard print bag and voila I cannot recognize myself you guysss!! :P IMG_6248IMG_6249IMG_6252

20150614_114841_resizedIt has been a busy week at work with a lot of traveling, in fact I am going to be away next week too so bear with my erratic posting! But I shall briefly make up with this outfit post that involves a blindingly bright yellow skirt which does nothing but spread good vibes and hides untoned lower abdomens! :P Enjoy your friday and MAKE THE WEEKEND COUNT FOLKS! :)

Elevating the lounge pant!

IMG_6167sI have no idea why pants even exist….. FINE I would need them for winter but for those hot and humid summers? No sir! :P Frankly they are a hassle to wear especially post lunch when I feel the overwhelming need to undo my button at work so my stomach doesn’t feel like it has a noose around it :D I, however make an exception to lounge pants which you can now wear in public and be considered “with it” ;). Anyhooo I love this black pair which I can wear with a casual raglan tee and flats to work (without worrying about indecent exposure, courtesy an undone pant button :P) and also just add a sparkly neck piece and pumps to take it into the night( ahem, most nights to me means netflix and licking the last of cheeto dust but I digress). Dress without the stress… And that folks is how you elevate a lounge pant! :D Have a wonderful thursday!IMG_6166 IMG_6174IMG_6173

Hello Earthlings!

The saddest short story ever written: Monday! :| :P I am not sure what it is about this day I despise so much, maybe its the fact that I have to “adult” after two days of doing what I will!? Anyway hope you’ll have more success with it than me :P And here’s what last week looked like

  1. Carbquik tofu chive muffins for a low carb snack that’s loaded with protein20150808_1335022. Off white nails look so grown up!? Except I always manage to ruin them before they dry! 20150809_1803563. Catch up conversation over french fare at Balthazar! Zee creme brulee was to die for! :) 4. This is exactly what the ball of wires tucked behind my dresser needed :P 5. The perks of living close to the water!:DHave a wonderful week ahead! :) Breathe!!

Something Blue: Finale!

I was a little out of it yesterday and hence the lack of a HI5 but I feel better today, in fact good enough to close the something blue series!;) ( Finally) A grey tee with lace shorts and a boyfriend denim shirt to help with post taco tummy :P I tried wearing a hat in the HOT sun but it left me with after-shower hair plastered to my forehead so I am clearly doing it all wrong!? :P IMG_6150IMG_6149 Fun story: I failed to break in my pointed toe flats and two band aids later, took a detour to the nearest old navy to pick up flip flops! Lesson learnt ;) 20150719_174552_resized

What’s a blue series without some stripes!? Incomplete. ;) So here’s a white and blue striped oversized blouse which I should not have paired with a skirt that currently needs a belt to stay at my waist but I did anyway BECAUSE THEY HAVE POCKETS!! ( The struggle is real people) I broke it up with a turq neck piece and tan accessories,a VERY orange lip and of course a vivid background to make up for a bordering-on-blah outfit! Happy wednesday!! :) 20150710_17214220150710_17220020150710_172205_resized

Hi5 Mondays: Crunchy sprouts & A Shady Lady

Tags

, , , , , ,

Hello People!

Today was a drearier than usual monday for me! Scientist,teacher, former president of India and all time favorite human being, Dr Kalaam is no more. While I (and most Indians/ world citizens) mourn his demise, at least I take solace in the fact that I was part of an era where he lived and inspired millions of youngsters to chase their dreams! So on a bittersweet note, I shall distract myself thinking about some stuff I did over last week before the onion cutting ninjas get to me :|

1. Looking for a quick side? Brussel sprouts pan seared with some garlic and parmesan! Yumm IMG_61762. I bought these funky mirrored shades to make it even more obvious that I am taking a selfie :P 2015-07-25 14.52.533. Just put down this book! Great read :) 4. Had a little road trip outside NY over the weekend and we stopped here for some pressed juice! Loved the kitschy interiors :)20150725_1616465. Last week I coaxed my chains into obedience, and this week I used a stationary organizer to keep my other baubles in some semblance of order! IMG_6119I hope all you have a wonderful week and I’ll fittingly wrap it up with a quote from Dr. Kalaam -“Those who cannot work with their hearts achieve but a hollow, half-hearted success that breeds bitterness all around.”

I am not entirely sure how many posts my blue obsession is going to take up( probably as many blue clothes as I own:P) but please cheer me from the sidelines until I get over this phase :D In today’s post,my W____I____DE legged palazzo pants shall take center stage! Who ever came up with these needs a medal for making this so utterly comfortable and also a good talking down for creating a terribly unflattering silhouette especially if you choose to skip your wedges (which I totally did)!:P I paired it with a white tee (aka bane of my laundering existence) and some silver jewelry! Bonus: I had fun pretending I was wearing a maxi skirt with pockets:D Now if that doesn’t convince you to buy a pair I don’t know what will ;) Namaste!! :P 20150627_143252 20150627_143258 20150627_144606

Hello folks,

I had a surprisingly good monday if you discount the sweltering heat and the failed air conditioning in my office! :) Weekend wasn’t half bad either. Here are my high lights from last week.

1. A quick potato water cress roast for the lunch box! IMG_61252. A tangle mess of chains are not fun for anyone to deal with much less when you are trying to make it to the morning train! DIY Tadaaa! :)IMG_61353. Look what I found.. :D20150621_1843484. Watched Antman and I had a few good laughs! ;)5. A lovely middle eastern meal at taboonette Have a fabulous week. Slather on the SPF and sip on some good ol’ lemon water:)

How hard is my life when I look in my closet and all I see is blue… different hues of aqua, powder, navy, bright blue… as tees, as skirts as cardigans and dresses!? Not hard at all considering how easy it is to make outfit combos with blue. :D And thus I begin this series as a continuation from my post two weeks ago. Presenting a no-brainer combo of navy white and grey with a slit thrown in for good measure :P Nothing like some air circulation on a hot afternoon ;) Have a wonderful thursday! IMG_6079IMG_6081IMG_6076IMG_6082 IMG_6080
