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. IΒ 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! πŸ™‚
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,Β 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!

The Time is Now

My biggest achievement this week was going back to the gym. Only I know how much I missed it! The whole ‘let your body recover after delivery’ was literally killing me. But then that was also (very) important. I was doing home workouts here and there (like 1 to 2 times a week – when the baby was napping – or when I was not sleep deprived) however, that wasn’t enough for me. I wasn’t feeling the ‘burn’. So I finally decided it was time to go back to the gym. I wasn’t able to focus properly at home workouts. Something or other kept needing my attention so the workouts were interrupted quite a few times. So I did it. I signed up for a gym membership. Going back to the gym really hit the spot for me. It was awesome! The energy, the sound of iron hitting the floor, the atmosphere, seeing other people smashing their workouts is really what motivates me! I love working out with like minded people.
And frankly speaking this one hour of break from ‘mommying’ is really doing me good. It feels good to be out, doing something for my self which is not baby related and then coming back home feeling energized and refreshed. Bonus – keeping my body in good shape and health helps me be the best version of myself.

Summer (as always) arrived early in Orlando. My dresses and shorts are already in circulation. This summer I’m looking forward to dress up in lots of cotton, loose dresses and bright colors. Who’s with me?

Crisp Mornings

Who ever told me that Florida does not experience Fall season, literally lied. On my face. Ofcourse we are not talking about leaves shedding or turning orange, red and yellow. All I’m saying is the weather has changed. The wind is crisp, the mornings and evenings are very, very pleasant. You can still do without layers and have fun out in the open. That’s all I ever wanted. A break from the heat. And now I have it. Thank you God! Β πŸ™‚
After spending major part of my pregnancy during the hot and humid months, this pleasant change in the weather is a big relief.
Embracing black lace (and my handsome husband πŸ˜‰ ) on the blog today.

Kept for Ages

Writing this post on Friday evening sitting in my living room overlooking at the lake in our apartment complex which is currently filled to the brim! Hurricane Matthew has (thankfully) passed us and the weather is much stable now. The rain has stopped though it is still crazy windy outside. And if you are wondering, we are safe. Though (as expected) there are after-effects of the storm, I’m thankful to God that people are safe and the worst is over. It was one crazy day, if you ask me! I’ve never experienced anything like this before. Let’s just say nothing stands close to mother nature.
On today’s outfit – Again wearing a dress which has been hanging in my closet for a long time. I still have some left to use during this pregnancy Β ;). Minimalism is my jam! Oh and these booties are so, so comfortable. Bought these on a whim while circling the aisles of a DSW store in my city. Love the color and the flat sole (which is kind of a necessity now-a-days considering my swollen belly).
