O Olive!


, , , ,

The olives in my wardrobe are mostly limited to shirts, jackets and an occasional pant but when I saw this chiffon olive dress I had to open my heart and wallet to it ๐Ÿ˜› The waist tie detail is a double perk – defines your waist when you need it, hides your post lunch pooch when you don’t. SOLD!

Enjoy your weekend! ๐Ÿ˜€



Boyfriend Jacket: Yay or Nay!?


, , ,

Before anyone starts wondering what I am doing wearing a jacket in India in April ๐Ÿ˜› … this is from earlier this year when we took a trip to a place that actually needed a jacket ๐Ÿ˜›

I am all about oversized outerwear- they really are cozy, double up as a mini comforter AND MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU ALWAYS FIT IN THEM. I am also all about wearing sandals and jackets(cringe) ๐Ÿ˜€




And I am back :D


, ,


Its been a looooong time since I was on here…. the past year has been a zinger – lots of travel, work, growth…what have you! I have considered writing on and off, but you know how I feel about doing a half baked job ๐Ÿ˜› So now that I feel ready to pick up from where I left off, I hope all of you continue to read with renewed enthusiasm (Thank you everyone who left me messages saying I was missed :)) ! ย Be prepared for a drastic change in scenery, content and style as I am currently in India. ย But my humor, snark and sweet tooth are eternal! ๐Ÿ˜€ I shall leave you all with this image from my trip to Thailand that seems to be occasion-appropriate. Welcome back ย ๐Ÿ˜‰


Keeping up with Khaki!


, , , , , , ,

This is my first post for 2017 and its LATE! But but hopefully this year is great?!! ๐Ÿ˜› ย  I wish everyone a very happy new year and hope all of you are having a great week. ย Since I’ve been having a bit of blogger’s block, am simply going to leave you with this very navy outfit paired with a khaki jacket and a pop necklace which haven’t worn in over a year so I guess thats worth posting!? I also have added a too-close up of my face to remind you’ll to face your worst fears this year and keep doing you! ๐Ÿ˜€

Blaximize is defined as a state of mind when you look in your closet and can find nothing to wear, so end up reaching forย the first black thing you find which happens to be a maxi dress and you think ‘Thats not too bad’ and make the most of it ๐Ÿ˜› Okay I totally made that up, but that should give you an idea of how I function in December! Happy Thursday folks! ๐Ÿ˜€fullsizerender img_3803 img_3805

Hi5 Mondays: Sleepless in Seattle


, , , , , , , ,

Hi Everyone,

It’s December already??ย I must have dozed off on the 2016 ride because I HAVE NO IDEA HOW WE GOT HERE SO QUICK! ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway this monday is not bad at all since I am recently back from a 10 day working vacation(I have no idea how anyone gets anything done with weather like that) from Seattle! Since we were staying right in the middle of the city, everything was so accessible by foot and we managed to do most of the touristy things – The needle, the Chihuly glass museum, downtown aquarium and the zoo among others. So barring the usual suspects,ย here’s my TOP 5 from Seattle as a tourist.

  1. Washington is a beautiful state! Since this is my first taste of the west coast( I have been to LA on work but that doesn’t count) I realize I could be gushing, butย it is such a different kind of beauty. We also took a few road trips, including to Portland and the drive was just gorgeous. ย Highly recommend the gasworks park for the views of seattle, the drive to bridal veil and Multnomah falls!ย 2. This was my favorite place in Seattle. ย You could spend hours in the farmers market checking out everything from produce to vintage posters. Please do not miss going to Ellenos for some greek yogurt and pick up some piroshkys. 3. ย I have discovered the world of board games on this trip; the fact that most coffee shops had stacks of games had me mildly fascinated. Go play at the Mox! And then stop for an improv show at Unexpected productions or reserve well ahead and go see a jazz performance at Dimitriou’s.ย img_40564. The YSL exhibit at the Seattle art museum was an unexpected bonus, like finding a $20 INTACT in the pocket of your freshly laundered pants! ๐Ÿ˜› Was a phenomenal exhibit and so worth your time and ticket!ย img_40705.ย FAMILY!! Prat’s brother was a great host and we thoroughly enjoyed everything he had planned for us. It always helps when you have an insider who can let you in on the best parts of the city.ย img_4129Weirdly, houston’s behaving like Seattle all week, so I will sleep walk through rest of the day and hope that all of us get out of this week unscathed! HAPPY MONDAY ๐Ÿ˜€



Keeping the blues at bay!


, , , , ,

I have only semi-recovered from the election circus… let’s not even talk about the repercussions; all I know is I just cannot deal with the possibility of packing right now( and heading home). Getting out in half-decent clothes is too much of a task, so here’s one from a while back when we were at galveston and FAR AWAY FROM THE ELECTION… ! :D:|img_7376 img_7349 img_7405

Hi5 Mondays: Diwalloween part 2


, , , ,

For part 2 of Hi5 Mondays, I am simply going to let these pictures do the talking and keep it brief! HAPPY HALLOWEEN EARTHLINGS!! ๐Ÿ™‚

We spent some time decorating our home for the occasion! ๐Ÿ˜€ img_3317d1Played with make up that literally looked like a paint palette!ย img_3628img_3603Zombified ourselves for the Montrose Crawl! He was a zombie chef and I was a zombie child:P if it wasn’t obvious enough.ย img_3604img_3569And finally all the candyย eating and giving ๐Ÿ˜› The constant line of kids trick or treating completed the day!ย img_3627Now I shall go back to counting down to the next fun holiday! Have a wonderful week! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi5 Mondays: Diwalloween – part 1


, , , , , , ,

I seldom post on a sunday because am too busy warding off monday blues ๐Ÿ˜› , but this week was different. I was in such an upbeat mood the entire time awaiting the weekend for Deepavali (one of my favorite festivals of all time) + halloween( which I refuse to outgrow)! In fact I did so many things over the week it simply wasn’t enough to cram it all in one post:D So here’s part 1 of Diwalloween and part 2 to follow tomorrow.

  1. The new clothes( Courtesy: 2 sets of parents from home)made up for the lack of crackers( barely though). Good news is I can still wear a sari without becoming a human pretzel! ๐Ÿ˜›fullsizerender_1 img_35072. This was the first time I tried making all these indian goodies so I started earlier this week to make sure I had enough time. Big mistake…. We polished off most of the snacks and I had to make some more this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰ NOM NOM NOM!ย f3. Deepavali literally translates to festival of lights…. so we decided now was a good time to put up lights on our patio.ย img_35914. We visited the temple after a while! This picture could have literally been in Chennai and no one would know! ๐Ÿ˜€ I misss hommmeeeeeeimg_35255. More food!?? Went all out with my Diwali breakfast spread and skipped lunch! NOW IF THAT ISNT THE WAY TO LIVE!?? ๐Ÿ˜€img_3493HAPPY DEEPAVALI/ DIWALI EVERYONE! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hide your weighing scaleeesssss!! ๐Ÿ™‚
