Pregnancy Dressing

Being pregnant has made me realize so many things. I am now aware of so much stuff I never would’ve known had it not been for this pregnancy. Every stage in our lives teaches us something new. Isn’t it! The changes my body has been going through, are pretty miraculous. The change in my thoughts, that ‘motherly’ feeling slowly seeping through me..
With time, I can feel and connect with my baby more and more. I now know when she becomes active, when is she asleep, what triggers her to move and kick. I can’t wait to bond with her in person. It may sound strange but I dreamt of her the other night. This little angel-faced infant was lying next to me in my dream and she looked so Perfect! She was looking right in my eyes. 🙂
And then I woke up! 😦
Jumping on to the outfit part – Trying to dress up when you have a football sized tummy wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. My main focus has always been ‘comfort’. And pregnancy is no different. I have ample of such airy blouses in my closet, and I guess now is the time to put them to good use. Initially when my bump started to show, I had to really brainstorm to come up with good outfits. But then it became easier.
I think pregnancy is one experience when clothes should be the least of your worries. Wear what you feel is comfortable to you, and feel confident in your body – You are growing a miracle inside you! 🙂

Real Steal

These pants were meant to be worn in pregnancy. Though they are not maternity pants at all. They are regular pants with a VERY comfortable fit and fabric. Sometimes you find gems when you are not looking for’em! – (applies to other aspects of life too!) 😉
In other news, I had the most boring and uneventful week. I stayed at home mostly since it was one of those days when the pregnant body takes the charge and you HAVE GOT TO slow down. I felt cranky, miserable, bloated and tired all the time. Oh did I mention the mood swings? Plus I am a Cancerian, so multiply that to 100! My poor (and adorable) husband, he takes it all with a smile. To sum up – I’m in the state of ‘TOUCH ME NOT’. Yep! Nothing defines me better than these 3 words at the moment. Hoping this week(end) brings some light, energetic and fun days.
Have a fun week y’all!

Playful Stripes

I feel like I go in to this black hole every once in a while and then come out with shining colors with a post like this! Ha.. kidding! There is no hole, its just that life takes priority (and I am very lazy). Plus blogging is not my profession, so a little bit of irregularity does no harm to anyone. Right?
Life has been great lately. This year has brought a lot of changes in my life already (moving states, leaving job etc.), and set to bring many more. Time will tell.
In other news, I am growing out my hair. So right now, I have this awkward phase going on, which if seen by fashion police may land me up in fashion jail! So don’t get surprised if you see a lot of fedora’s and scarves covering my head for another few weeks. I don’t like getting caught. 😉
This dress is an oldie (like 2 years old.. maybe 3). But its the most comfortable maxi dress that I own. You can see why! And you know it very well that I don’t like to accessorize too much, specially in summers when it is too hot anyway to wear an extra piece around the neck or tons of bracelets in hands. I believe in ‘Less is More’. I like to let my outfit speak.
Till next time! Ta!!

Another Birthday

I turned another year older (or say another year wiser) this Friday! Birthday’s do not excite me that much anymore. Though I am VERY grateful for all the wishes and blessings (birthday or no birthday..!!) that my family and friends shower on me! Your blessings mean a lot, and that’s all that matters.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that now I understand why my parents never used to be ‘super excited’ about their birthdays (unlike us kids). I am not against celebration or anything.. I am just saying that in the past decade or two, all this ‘birthday’ thing has been hyped way too much!

Anyhow, I spent my day low-key with my family, baked a cake for my own birthday (which I also cut).. then went out to surf Boston downtown. I try to enjoy all the small-happy moments that life has to offer! 🙂
