Here I am, at 7 weeks postpartum, without a messy bun or dark circles. I was able to pull this look off in 45 mins while my husband watched our baby girl. Cheers to mom life!!
Let’s talk some desi swag – I have always bought Indian clothes from local markets in India but this time, I decided to look for outfits online and found this brand – Bunaai. It is founded by a fellow Indian blogger and boss babe Pari Choudhary and my experience has been nothing short of great. It feels so surreal to see women reaching great heights and social media has a huge role in it.
I ordered this Pink/green Suit set in size S and it fits me perfectly. I love the tassel dupatta/scarf and the vibrant color combo in it. I didn’t have to alter it yet but I will be adjusting the size once I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I got this outfit delivered to my parents’ address in India and it arrived in less than 10 days. My mom got it to the US when she came to visit me. I believe, they do ship internationally but I do not have any experience with that. I am not affiliated with them and I did purchase this outfit with my own money. I only share something I truly love.
It’s been a while, I have missed you all and missed being in my element. However, I truly adore what I have now and wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. On January 16, 2019, I gave birth to my most precious being – my Daughter Esme. I introduced her briefly on my social media and I plan to share a lot more of her to the world.
I have great ideas for my blog and will be starting a mini styling series soon. To make up for the lost time, I will be sharing my pregnancy, Labor and delivery experience here on the blog before anything else.
Wearing the same clothes over and over again can be boring but it doesn’t have to be. In my experience, restyling your outfits with different accessories is the way to go. The accessories can be picked based on different occasions and it can be as simple as you want it to be. Last year I styled this gorgeous off -the- shoulder white dress with a simple denim choker and a denim backpack for a minimalistic look; you can check that post here. This year, I picked the same dress for my day trip to ‘Wicked Tulip Farms’ and decided to brighten it up a bit. I accessorized it with a colorful headband and ‘Austin’ earrings in the same colors as my favorite Tulips. I have linked similar items below as the originals are sold out. As for restyling, if you don’t know where to start, take an all-black or an all-white outfit from your wardrobe and restyle it with different accessories.
“Spring brings new growth; weed out the bad and make room for something beautiful.”
We are getting snow showers/storms every week in Boston and in the hope of spring, we have started the process of spring cleaning our home. In the next couple of months, I will be working on small fashion projects inspired by the quote above – Declutter and Re-style.
The whole concept behind de-cluttering is to remove the things that are not useful in your life anymore. Things to de-clutter in your life could be as small as your emails & desktop and as big as your closet and bedroom. I am targeting a new area at home every day to de-clutter. The easiest way to do that is use those items before you buy new stuff and see if they still work for you. I decided to do a re-styling series on my blog where I will recreate looks from the old pieces of clothing or shoes or bags I own.
In this post, I am re-styling my red ankle boots, red bag and black wool coat and the black dress. Last time I styled most of these items with jeans. Here is a side to side comparison. I love how most of the items are common and yet, both the looks are different from each other.
Weather has been so good in Boston lately and I used the opportunity to style my favorite Chunky Knit Sweater (Similar) from HM which I bought in November. I bought it in size S and it is a little shorter than I expected but I sized up just to get this look. I love the light teal color and it’s very cozy. However, it feels bulky to wear jacket on top of this chunky sweater so it’s perfect for 50’s-60’s weather.
I paired it with my all-time favorite Faux Leather Skirt from Express which I bought on sale. I bought it in size XS and it fits well. Also, my over the Knee Boots are from Marc Fisher and I bought them from DSW for under $50 on sale.
Shopping/Saving tip: Never miss good sales and always make use of the coupons. If you sign up to the brands you love to shop at, they send you deals regularly. On top of the regular sales, you can use also coupons for some extra savings.

I can’t believe we are half way through February! This year we didn’t have plans for Valentine’s day other than just chilling at home; I did want to share this glam yet effortless winter look that is perfect for Valentine’s day or any other special occasion. I basically used most of the items from my closet – Black top, jeans and blush pink pumps.
I bought this dress long ago but was saving it for some special occasion. I got such a good deal on it and it is very flattering on your body. I wore it on a Christmas Party we hosted. It is under $15 and comes in a few different colors. Boohoo is based in the UK and has various global retailers/brands.
This is one of my favorite overcoats I own. The color is beautiful and I received many compliments on this one. A lot of my friends enquired about it so I recently did a detailed post about this product. Here’s the link.
I am back with another fashion post today featuring this beautiful Blush Pink Waterfall Coat from Boohoo. I bought this in October and has worn this so many times since then. I received many compliments on this coat so I decided to do a full post about it. It is also on sale currently. This waterfall coat comes in 4 stunning colors and the fabric is comfortable. I usually buy size XS/S but bought this in size S/M and fits perfectly. So if you’re Size M, go for size M/L in this style. Here’s the link for plus size Blush coat.
I hope you all had a great time with family and friends. I sure did! I have been away from social media for about a month now and haven’t posted a blog in a while. After taking a break for sometime and reflecting on the past year, I decided to come back and start blogging again.
I love blogging when it’s stress-free but over the past few months, it became overwhelming for me. I was trying to catch up with established bloggers or new bloggers who were growing very fast. I couldn’t move up the ladder as quickly as others because it involved more than just time, commitment, and money for me. I made a lot of great memories in the past two months, traveled places and I unplugged for most of the time. I do have a few travel stories to share with you all in the next few weeks. For today I just wanted to sit with you and share my first post of the year.
”Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better”
I love being amidst nature and exploring new places in and around Boston. I discovered another jewel recently, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard. It is a botanical garden devoted to trees. Away from the city and the noise, this place is very peaceful & beautiful, especially in this season. I planned to meet a friend there but I arrived early and took a walk just by myself. It was so quiet out there that I could hear the rustling of leaves. There is still time to observe a spectacular display of fall foliage and a myriad of beautiful fruits and berries.
