Zesty

Would you believe me if I say that I still can’t come around the fact that I have a cute little daughter? A daughter who is cute like a button and oh, so adorable. I might sound like a broken record, but that is exactly how I feel. Every night when I put her to sleep in my arms and shower her with a thousand kisses, my eyes tear up. And every night I thank the supreme power for giving me the gift of motherhood. This is the MOST satisfying job in the world. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING else satisfies me more than holding her in my arms. I don’t think this feeling will ever get old. It has been more than 7 months and here I am, still standing in awe and wondering – how on earth my life turned in to this beautiful fairy tale!
In all honesty, every day is not like a fairy tale. Some days are longer (and harder) than others. But such is life – never the same. No two days are same – and that is how it should be.

Statement Shoes

In my last post I expressed how nervous I was about traveling with our little girl. However, to my surprise, traveling with her was smooth like butter! She was a breeze to be with; a lovely companion. We visited museums, hopped on tour buses, walked miles everyday aimlessly to find quaint neighborhoods and she loved all of it. I loved all of it. What a wonderful week we had. I did not feel like coming back – AT ALL. But all good things come to an end. So here we are.. back in Orlando city!
I have a confession to make. For the very first time, in ages (or I guess.. ever!!) we traveled without our camera. This has never happened before. Never. Specially since I started blogging, we’ve always carried my camera, but this time was different with little missy accompanying us. Though that did not stop me from clicking pictures on my phone. Ha! 🙂
I’m still sorting out pictures from our trip to post here on the blog. And I promise, the next post will have tons of travel pictures but for today, you’ll have to do with these pink shoes. Ha! After pink pants, who could’ve thought I’ll jump on to pink shoes so soon! But then again.. never say never! To be frank I’ve decided that from now on, I will try something unusual every time I dress up – just to be creative. Anything which I normally wouldn’t wear, or think of. All I can tell you is that I’m going to have some fun with my wardrobe. Like I said in my last post, fashion is supposed to be enjoyed. We need to make clothes work for us, and not the other way round. I’m a mum now.. so comfort is the key!

While I am on a 10-day vacation, I might as well put up a post! To be frank, I rarely ever, ever fire up my laptop when I am vacationing. I even don’t check my phone for hours on a stretch (no kidding..!!). I believe I can live with out social networking, it’s just a mode to pass time for me. Only when I have nothing else to do, no where else to go, I check my social network channels. Thankfully, I am not it’s slave (well, not yet).

Posting a few pictures from today. It’s quite hot and humid here (in D.C.) – < as compared to Boston > and wearing light dresses is the best way to beat the heat!

Flares Rule

Flares Rule

Told yaa.. Flares rule!

If you are a regular follower of Rising Colors blog, by now you would know that I have a clean and minimal way of dressing. Too many accessories in one outfit is just not my thing. I opt for clean sophisticated look which has at least one statement piece. Sometimes I let the shoes speak, sometimes it’s the jewelery i am wearing and most of the time it’s the choice of my bag which screams attention in an outfit. You see.. what I mean..

Anyways, this was quite a gray day with no sunshine and leftover snow <eeekkk..>! Layering is the key these days.. Please stay warm in which ever part of the world you are.. I am sending lots of warm wishes and hugs to you all 🙂

P.S. I am in love with these slim flare jeans. They add a good two inches to my height! Win.. win..!!
