”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.

I love fall fashion and have been experimenting with different colors this year. However, I am always partial to hues of red – it’s my favorite. I recently went to a formal event where I wore this beautiful Burgundy Maxi Dress from Shein. I can’t resist shopping from Shein; they always have the trendiest clothes at reasonable prices. I got it in the smallest size ‘S’ for under $40. I had to alter it a bit for a better fitting. I love the ruffles on this dress – gives the illusion of a high low dress but it’s a maxi dress.
May your life brighten up like the diyas in the Diwali celebration and keep all darkness away from your life.
Diwali brings so much happiness into our lives- we dress up, spend time with family, celebrate and fill the house with colors and lights. With regards to Diwali fashion, it’s a custom to buy new clothes and since the time I have moved to the US, it’s very hard to find good Indian clothes. One of my issues with shopping for Indian wear here is less or no customization. Mostly, it’s like ‘one size fits all’ clothes which can be altered and sometimes the outfits lose their shape with too much alteration.
Hello Glam Fam,
Fall is here and I am so excited for everything fall. Recently I updated my living room décor for fall, check it out here. I can’t wait to do things from my bucket list. I am overjoyed to style fall clothing – sweater dresses, hues of orange, red, yellow and green.
If you want to look stylish but keep the look minimalistic at the same time, a statement clutch is a must for you. I bring to you this versatile Wonderland fold over statement clutch by Rebecca Minkoff who is known for her statement Envelope clutches. When I saw this online, I had to get it.
Day 1 – I wore this beautiful High-Low Blue dress to the Mansion to complement the magnificent beauty of it. The dress is from Zaful and is under $30. The material is not Chiffon as described but polyester so the quality is average. The color is really gorgeous and the dress is exactly how it looks in the picture.

It has been a while since I wore a color coordinated outfit and I absolutely love how it turned out. I wore this outfit for brunch with my friends. I wanted to be comfortable and also, feel classy. The crop top is from Primark and I have worn it a few times before. The fabric quality is average.
One thing about Vintage Fashion – it always comes back with a bang. We have seen velvet, gingham and big floral prints emerge again as current design trends. Since I love vintage prints I got this skirt tailor-made. I bought this fabric from the local market in my hometown – Jalandhar (Punjab), India. The fabric is really thick and is not flowy. If you’re into vintage fashion with a modern twist, check out ‘Chicwish’. They have an amazing collection of vintage dresses & skirts, especially in floral and bold prints. Also, Etsy is another platform to look for vintage fabrics/outfits. I have linked down a few of my favorites from Chicwish in the similar prints as my skirt.

I have been wanting to go for a mini Vacation/Staycation at the Cape Cod but the sun has been hiding under the clouds. Even though last Saturday was cloudy and rainy, my husband and I decided to take a road trip to the Cape Cod.
Cape Cod, a hook-shaped peninsula of the U.S. state of Massachusetts, is a popular summertime destination. It’s the site of quaint villages, seafood shacks, lighthouses, ponds and bay and ocean beaches.
It turned out to be pretty great; it was a 2- hour drive from Boston. We directly went to Race Point beach and walked on the beach for 4 miles to the Race Point Light house and back. It was a long, tiring but a beautiful walk on the beach. We spotted a few Sea lions as well and enjoyed the cool breeze. We didn’t go in the water because it was cold that day and the water was freezing. Afterward, we went to Commercial Street to have seafood at a shack; the food was so fresh and delicious. Commercial Street was very fun and different; full of art galleries, souvenirs, gelato, and boutique shops. We strolled around for a while before we headed back to Boston. I would definitely go back to the Cape to explore the other towns on a sunny day. There are so many cute cottages and vacation homes to stay at.
About the look, I wanted to be comfortable for a day trip and yet dress appropriate for an island/beach day. I wore Bardot swing dress from Shein, it was very flowy and light. I love the style and fit of it. Expecting long walks, I wore my converse shoes with the dress. I also carried my denim jacket because the weather was in the 60’s that day. My Denim choker is from Charming Charlie.

Fashion trends come and go every year but ‘Gingham’ is the most viral trend of summer 2017. I don’t follow every trend that is introduced in the market but I couldn’t resist this one. There’s Gingham print in dresses, shorts, tops, and skirts available in hues of red and blue. My suggestion is to experiment with the trends from stores like ‘Shein’ or ‘forever 21’ without breaking the bank. I scored a deal at Shein with this Navy blue and white flattering belted peplum top. I love the color scheme, especially with this bold print. I styled it with white denim and silver accessories for the dinner date.

Lately, my husband and I have been going to the beach almost every day for post dinner walks. We feel much happier seeing people around spending time with their loved ones. Yesterday, we wanted to spend a little extra time at the beach so we packed our dinner and enjoyed it by the water. It was a very lovely evening to be spent outdoors. I am grateful to have little joys in life.
As for the outfit, I wanted to be comfortable and be able to sit for long hours. I wore this beautiful white maxi dress from Shein with the geometric print design. It does have a lining inside so it is not transparent and the material is soft and feels great on the skin. I bought it in size XS and it had a lot of room. The design on the front and the back seemed like an embroidery in the thumbnail but it’s just a geometric print. It was also very long for me as most maxi dresses are. My earrings and Bracelet are both from India. Picnic Blanket in the floral print is from Target Dollar Spot.
