“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.

I hope you enjoyed reading this one and looking forward to styling more outfits.
Boohoo Off the shoulder Skater Dress
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.
Boohoo Blush Pink Waterfall Coat
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.
Happy New Year everyone!!
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.
Blush Pink Bebe Backpack – I have been looking for a perfect sized backpack for travelling and I found it at TJ Maxx. This backpack is under $40 and has this beautiful squishy quilted look with gold details. You can also find it Here. TJ Maxx is also my favorite place to shop for Shoes & home stuff.
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
I come from a country where there are only two seasons – summer and winter. So being in the US, especially, living in Boston has brought many more colors to my life, like literally. I am so excited about all things fall. I am listing down 10 things everyone should do this fall.
Rosewater facial sprays have always been my favorite in India. I couldn’t find them anywhere in the US until I saw Mario Badescu Hydrating aloe & rose water spray at Ulta – I knew I had to have it. It is so refreshing and calming. I use it first thing in the morning or sometimes even to set my makeup.
I spent last week de-cluttering my apartment and getting it ready for the fall. I didn’t expect it to take so long – I took out all the summer clothes and sorted into 3 piles – Donate, Keep for next summer and summer to fall transition pieces. It really helped sort things out and make some extra space for beautiful fall clothes. While I was at it, I also got inspired to finally decorate our living room wall. It has been a blank canvas for a while and I wanted to give it a personal touch. I decided to do a mix-media gallery wall because I couldn’t settle on one thing. I got all the accent pieces from different stores.
Let’s get up close and personal today!
Yes, this is the kind of post I always love to read and I am sure it will help you guys as well. Summer has almost come to an end but these hacks will work all year long; whether you’re planning a big warm vacation in winters or planning for a special New Year Eve Party.
My all-time favorite bra is a Strapless Multi Way Bra from Target and Multi way Bra from Victoria’s secret. I have them in nude and black and they work with most strapless, one shoulder, off the shoulder dresses & tops and provide good support. Tip: Buy a strapless bra one cup smaller; so if you’re 34b, go for 34a and so on. It will sit tighter on you and you wouldn’t have to keep pulling it up.
