Back in May

I know June is almost over and we are stepping in to July (my birth month aka the ‘best’ month 😉 ). But I have to share with you all that we went to Miami in the month of May to celebrate 5 blissful years of our marriage. Truth be told, I loved the getaway, but was uncomfortable most of the time. I was in my first trimester of the pregnancy hence my taste buds were horrible and exhaustion was at its peak. Plus the acne wasn’t helping either. The bump wasn’t much visible yet, hence I was able to wear all my usual stuff. The thing is, we planned this vacation a few months in advance so we did not want to cancel it. Nevertheless, all went well! Honestly, I love the fact that I am so close to beaches now that I live in Orlando. We spend every alternate Sunday on a beach.

This white dress was my choice for our date night. I wanted to keep it romantic yet simple.

The yellow and black color combo worked really well. I like how the yellow color strikes more with a black base.

This dress is my personal favorite for vacations. It’s light, sexy and summer appropriate. Sometimes I also wear it as a cover up over my bikini.

Nothing pleases me more than a maxi these days. The ease and comfort is what I look for when travelling. Specially now that I am pregnant, maxi dresses are the only thing that I want to wear, all the time. Can you blame me!

These are selfies. Unfortunately, I do not have a full length view of this dress. Anyhow, the off shoulder style gave my enough room to breath, feel sexy and enjoy the sunny weather! What more one could ask for? 😉

While in Downtown

I am not one of those fashion bloggers who specially dress up for the blog posts. What I wear in my personal life is what I post here (I’ve said this before). This is the idea behind street style/personal style blogging. And truthfully, this outfit is exactly what I wore today to grab a cup of Almond Latte in Lake Mary downtown. It’s nice and warm in Orlando, and undoubtedly I am welcoming mini skirts with open arms.
It’s almost spring, I know.. but then I felt like dressing up for Fall. Ha! I promise, I will include more flowers in my next outfit to soothe your eyes, and to maintain balance of the universe. 😉
Would you believe if I say this skirt was a thrift find (and is almost 2 years old)! Also this top is making it’s second entry on the blog today. Judging by the positive response it got when I first wore it, even I don’t know why I never wore it again (on the blog). Of course I wore it many times but never clicked pictures. Better late than never!

Long-Awaited

‘Tis the season of pumpkin spiced lattes (I prefer salted caramel mocha though 😉 ), banana walnut bread, leather skirts, plum lipsticks, black boots and big fluffy scarves! It’s the Fall season, my favorite of all!!

Out of the above mentioned, I am sporting at least three here on the blog today. I eyed this skirt for last whole winter season, but never bought it since it was way above my budget. Generally, when buying clothing items, I have a threshold (to not buy anything above 70 USD). This keeps my budget in check and saves me from splurging.  But then came spring, and the prices slashed! I finally got my hands on it. It’s a wrap-around skirt, and I love the texture and the color! Yes, the downside was I couldn’t wear it last year, but I have no regrets since I will be wearing it so much more this year! Leather never goes out of style. Call it reward for my patience 😉

Global Citizen

Are you excited for the 4th of July? Well, I can’t wait enough to drive back to D.C. to be with my husband and family. Like last year, we plan to watch the parade and the fireworks this year too! Back in India, I grew up in Kanpur where our Independence Day celebrations were limited to the usual programs in school ending with the flag hosting ceremony. So growing up, I never got to watch a live parade, which is why today when I think of it, I get excited. Even though I am not in my own country or this Independence celebration may not be ‘my own’, but then I think how does it really matter? Just because I was not born here, doesn’t mean I don’t think of this country my own! I live here, work here, eat here, earn here, pay taxes – its definitely my own! Plus one only feels the way he wants to! And frankly I consider myself as a ‘global citizen’ and would love to be a part of the Independence day celebrations.

With that thought, I am wishing my fellow Americans a very Happy Independence Day!

P.S. This is what I wore to see the parade last year.. nothing fancy, just easy!
