Finally Gave In

I gave in. Finally. I had to. After all these months of resistance, I gave in and bought a pair (actually two!) of maternity jeans. Initially I thought of not wearing denim pants at all once the bump starts increasing. I thought I would simply rely on my linen pants, loose fitting dresses and stretchable skirts etc. But then, there were days when I really missed wearing a good pair of jeans. I used to look at the pile of my regular (now old) jeans, and sigh.. thinking when will I be able to wear them again! Since all my regular pants are no where close to my waist-line anymore! So I finally took a deep breath and brought two pairs – a skinny fit (my choice) and a boot cut fit (husband’s choice).
The only thing holding me back was that these pants won’t be of much use to me post-delivery, but then I ready of a lot of blogs, where women talked about wearing the maternity pants way after their deliveries (since obviously the belly doesn’t go back to ‘flat’ the next day of delivery). Well that made sense and so here it is!
P.S. Your girl is 21 weeks preggo here! The jeans and the loose blouse are hiding the bump quite nicely, I must say.
P.P.S. Every week it feels like I’m achieving a new milestone. To think of it, I keep getting closer to holding my babe in my arms. πŸ™‚

Fall Returns

Now that Labor day is over, we can move on and accept the fact that Fall is hereΒ (though the official date is Sep 23rd), I already feel the change in climate. I have re-introduced my leather skirts, burgundy lipsticks and big scarves back in to my closet! I don’t know if I am happy or sad about summer getting over. Let’s just say Autumn is my favorite season of all the seasons and leave at that (on the other hand, I’m not in to Winters at all.. like AT-ALL)! Why can’t it be Fall forever! πŸ˜›

This is what I wore this past weekend city strolling. Like I said, you will see lots of magenta, burgundy and ruby shades on the blog this month! I love how these colors represent the transition in the weather and also make you glow!

I call this a retro outfit with an edge! The polka dots, the lace and these white sunnies make a decent combination! Don’t you agree??

Retro Modern

It was so, so hot & humid that evening.. Wearing anything was a challenge! Thanks to all the rains, we finally got rid of that awful humid weather. I finally feel the autumn weather now. I am kind of still not ready for autumn and then those long, long winters. But what can I do! You gotta live with it πŸ™‚

So my days of wearing mini’s, shorts and dresses are limited. Hence, I am trying to wear as much as I can, before it gets too cold! You know, I am more of a summer girl!

Wore this outfit to go grab some coffee over the weekend! How was your weekend?

From the Golden Days

I am a true Bollywood fan.. However, these days they are not making as many good movies as they used to back in retro days.. Sometimes when I watch these old movies I always tell my husband how I wish I was born in that era.. And he always replies – You sure did.. you just don’t know about your past life! πŸ™‚
Anyways.. so my love kept increasing in the Archives folder and I finally decided to share it all on the blog.. I sometimes get inspiration from these and some are pure eye-candy!
All these yester year actresses did so well in their careers.. they were (some still are) breathtakingly beautiful (think Rekha or ). I look at these pictures and think of how our understanding of the word ‘beauty’ has changed these days.. The latest actresses are obsessed about skinny bodies, collar bones, thigh gaps and what not! Most of them know nothing about acting but still are leading the top charts of the ‘Best Actress’ title! Anyways.. that’s my too cents on what I feel about the new movies getting released these days..
I guess the problem is not the new faces we see every day.. The problem is that the bar is raised too high by these evergreen beauties and it seems quite difficult for anyone to touch it!
With all that being said, I still look forward to new actresses hoping this one could be better than the others!
No matter what.. old will always remain gold..
