An old blue dress

This dress deserves a second appearance on the blog. Last time I wore it on the blog was when I was five months pregnant. Oh good times.. And now I am always chasing my 17 months old trouble maker. Well, as I mentioned, this feather-light dress deserves another mention. The color is soothing and the fabric feels like rose petals. It’s a must for my summer wardrobe. I wear this and I feel I have nothing on me (don’t get any ideas ok!) 😉 Isn’t that a good feeling under the scorching Florida sun!
Last time I kept it simple with plain white sneakers, however this time I glamorized it with accessories. That totally changes the look. Check out how I styled this dress last time HERE.

Dress is Old Navy, sandals are Kenneth Cole (a T.J.Maxx find) and the bag is also from T.J.Maxx (similar one). Necklace is from Burlington and earrings are old.

Now is the time

I have a question for you. When you buy something new, say a dress or a pair of shoes or fancy napkins, do you wear (or use) it the next chance you get or you save it for a special occasion? I ask because for years I used to be one of those who would save new stuff for those special occasions which frankly do not come that often. A couple months ago, I finally let go of this habit. And it is has been life changing. I’m not exaggerating, seriously. It is so, so liberating to not save your favorite dinner set for special guests or that lovely dress for a special night. Live for TODAY. Today is the only moment you can be sure of. Past is gone and who knows what future holds. Right now is all that we have.

Again it was a super windy evening which is clearly evident from the pictures. This beautiful contrast trim blouse is from Target and the skirt is five years old. Bought  these blush tassel earrings from Asos. Oh and these green heels. Can it get any better? They are Anne Klein and out of stock now. Sorry! 🙂

Mehendi Dress

From a blogger point of view, none of the pictures from this shoot turned out well. None. Not one at all. Honestly, this never happens. If we click twenty, atleast five do come out decent. But some days the camera really doesn’t co-operate and apparently, it was one of those days. But when I uploaded the pictures on the computer, I kind of really liked them. I liked how raw they looked – absolutely real. This is me, most of the time – twirling, smiling, always fixing her hair – perfectly imperfect.
Wore this to a lunch and shopping date with my girlfriend and had a blast. When you are happy it shows on your face. It was super windy that evening and it also rained later. Perfect end to a perfect day.
This green shade is what we call ‘Mehendi green’ in Hindi. Mehendi means henna. And whenever I look at this color, it reminds me of beautiful Indian weddings when brides and grooms apply mehendi on their hands. So shall we call this dress the ‘mehendi dress’? Ya, let’s.
The dress is from JCPenney, sandals from Target and earrings are Old Navy.

Flower Mania

Not sure if it is the season or my general happy mood, but these days (I mean every-single-day) I wake up wanting to dress the biggest flowers and the happiest colors. Blacks and greys don’t excite me anymore. If the print on the fabric isn’t ‘happy’ I don’t want to wear it. Does it happen with you too? Do you also go through phases like these? Black for a few months and then all colors of the rainbow for the next few?
Not sure till when it’s going to last, but I am loving this phase. I mean who doesn’t like to dress in clothes that make them happy, right?

Its the Fair season here in Orlando. Every weekend there is a fair going on. And since February, we’ve been to four Fairs already. Even though our little girl is too young to enjoy the rides, she loves the attention and the crowd. She is very social and very friendly and loves being around people (frankly, we love it)! Which is why we don’t miss a chance to bring her to events like these. Wore this Gap dress to one of the Fairs and had fun all afternoon! Love, love the coral color. I matched it with white gladiator sandals (from Aldo) which are quite old. You can find similar ones HERE.
