I feel so liberated. So free. So much comfortable. Now I wonder why did I never ever cut my hair this short before! May be I wasn’t too sure if I would look good.. But then, one day I thought, who cares if it looks good or not, I like short hair, (I literally stare at women with short hair.. admiring them), I want it and so I am going to get it. Nobody can stop me. And then rest is history.
Well, to be honest, I am still getting used to looking in the mirror and seeing myself like this (not that I don’t like it, in fact I love it)! Though I know that I look totally different now. It;s funny that I still dream of myself with bob length hair. It happens, you know… your mind takes it’s own time to memorize a face/image. It doesn’t happen that quick!
Umm.. just like you always picture your old school friends the way they looked back in school. No matter, if they are married now, have kids, look different, gained weight or lost hair… when you close your eyes and think of them, you (most often than not) would imagine them just like they looked back then (unless you meet them regularly and seen their physical appearance transition in front of you). Well, that is because that image is kind of printed in your memory. Undoubtedly, I need to memorize my own hair, or else I won’t recognize if I ever saw myself in a dream 😉
On the outfit front, this blouse is old and so are the shorts. These shorts are 4 years old actually, and they were sitting in the ‘give away’ pile for almost 2 years because they didn’t fit me anymore, but for some reason I never gave them away. That day, I was going through my ‘give away’ pile to see if something catches my interest (again..!!) and found these shorts. I thought, ehh.. there is no harm in giving them a try one last time and guess what – they fit!!! Now, they are back in my closet 🙂
Doesn’t if feel awesome when a pair of old jeans/dress/ fit again?!! #winwin
We all have that one part of our body which responds quicker and better to exercise. For me, it has to be my legs. God knows, I work more on my upper body, arms, abs and what not! But my legs look ‘toned’ all around the year (may be cause I used to ride bicycle back in my school days). I used to bike to school, to my friends places, to markets.. everywhere! That laid a very good foundation for my legs (only if I knew back then, I would have boxed, axed, hammered or done something to make my upper body look as dapper)! 😛
But it’s work in progress (it will always be). You know when you have 2 or 3 kids, and one of them is the sweetest and the kindest child, others not so much.. ya know what I mean?!!
On the outfit front, these high waist black shorts are flaunting my super toned legs quite nicely. And the causal blouse was easy to wear in the D.C. heat. And those neon sports shoes are my gym shoes.
I only packed this one pair of jeans for my trip (and this sweatshirt, a dress and this shirt – that’s it… oh plus tons of skin products!!! ). This jeans is almost four years old. It was just a weekend trip and I knew I was going to do a lot of walking, so you see no heels, nothing extraordinaire, no shenanigans! Give me shoes over flats any day and I’m a happy girl.
One chance and I was back at the King Street – my favorite street (in Alexandria) that ends with a river. After travelling to so many places, I can say – If given a chance, I would love to get settled in this city! Actually I can never get tired of sight-seeing in this city. I love everything here – Everything. I miss living here.. now I am mere a ‘weekend visitor’! Ughh.. sigh….

This scarf draws all the attention no matter what I am wearing. My favorite till date, I will never part ways with it until I wear it to shreds! I know I have styled it only with neutrals here, but this is not it, this scarf will make an entry on the blog again.. soon!
I really like scarves from Forever 21 and H&M. You get lots of variety at quite reasonable rates. These days I am rocking this scarf in office, and get so many compliments every time!
