To Fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness ~ Robert Morley
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.
Falling leaves, Apple cider, Pumpkin patches, Crisp Air, Hayrides, Cozy Sweaters, Hot Cocoa ~ I call it Fall.
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.

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.

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.

Blogging is fun but it is not easy especially when the weather doesn’t support it. It was raining in Boston last week making it a non-ideal situation for the photo shoot. I am still experimenting with my blogging style and I like to explore new locations to see what works the most. It takes a lot of hard work tracking down good locations and coming up with new ideas to share. I found a hidden gem just 2 miles from my place – Wollaston Beach (Yacht clubs).
After being MIA for the past 2 weeks, I am back with more summer fashion ideas. I see summer as an upbeat and cheerful time. I lean towards colorful outfits and bold prints as much as possible before getting into winter grays, black and whites. I found this beautiful halter neck dress with watercolor floral print at Shein. I bought a size ‘S’, it fits well and I like the length of the dress as well. The only downside to this dress is you have to keep pulling it down as you move your arms up. Shein has become one of the favorite online stores for clothes shopping.
I’m also enjoying the ‘end of the summer’ sales as well. Recently, I shopped a lot of stuff from Zara including these amazing Fuchsia/orange high heels. These are definitely one of favorite purchases of the summer. I love the pop of color.

I am surprised how much Boston has to show to the world. Recently, I found out about Boston Harbor Islands and I went to one of them – Castle Island with my girlfriends. Castle Island is located on Day Boulevard in South Boston on the shore of Boston Harbor. It is currently a 22-acre recreation site. It’s a perfect little summer world in itself; beaches, picnic spots, a huge area for games, beautiful sunsets and recreational activities including Kitesurfing. It’s easier to get there and has a lot of parking in different sections of the island. We spent about 3-4 hours at this place sitting by the water, playing card games and having light snacks. We took some fun pictures while exploring the area.
For this day, I chose to wear a beautiful and Vibrant Maxi dress by Shein. It’s a high-low, halter style dress with color block design. I am impressed with this online brand, the quality of the products for the price, and quick delivery. I am also very excited to style my first Austin earrings by Charming Charlie. I love the color contrast in this piece and it is a great accessory for the summer.

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and you’re sipping cold coffee.
I had a wonderful time on Saturday at Seaport, Boston. I met with a friend at a vegan restaurant “By Chloe” and we chatted for a while. We took the opportunity to bask in the sun. Afterwards, we went for a walk by the water and took some amazing pictures.
Let’s talk about the outfit of the day! This bright Asymmetrical dress from Shein comes in more than 15 colors making it hard to choose just one. I don’t have enough green in my wardrobe so I picked that color. I might just buy another color in this dress because it’s so versatile and can be styled in many ways. I like that it’s airy & flowy making it the perfect sundress for summer.
Stay tuned for more posts this summer!
Recently, I did some shopping from Shein for my birthday. I had seen a lace dress that was out of my budget and I found a similar dress on Shein. I wasn’t sure at first about the purchase but I decided to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised with their service. I received my items in less than 10 days.
Shein is an online retailer that is based in Asia. They sell inexpensive and trendy clothing and accessories. They have so much variety and if you start adding items in your cart, you cannot stop at one or two. This is not a sponsored post.
I bought the below items and this is how I styled them.
Fit – I usually wear size “XS” but I ordered size “S” as it was the smallest size they had and measurements were same as “XS”. It fits me perfectly.
Fabric – It is a very delicate lace dress with cut out designs. I felt the gold zipper looked cheap but it’s a small detail compared to the beautiful overall look of the dress.
Fit – I ordered size “XS” in this dress and it runs true to size. I comes with same print sash so that you can cinch it from the waist and make a cute bow at the back.
Fabric – Fabric was soft and airy. I love how it feels on the skin, it’s perfect for the summer.
Some Do’s and don’ts when you shop at Shein
- When you like something, make sure you go through the details of the item, especially size. I always avoid an outfit which says “One size”. Make sure you read the measurements for “one size” outfits, if you really want to order them.
- I ordered these in the US so I added return insurance of $1.99 and they send you the return shipping label for free. It is cheaper and reliable form if you want to return something.
- If you’re based outside US, make sure you check the custom duty they charge you during checkout. I think it is calculated on the weight of the package.
- If you review their items online, they do give you points on your purchase that you can use to shop later.
I would definitely be making a purchase from shein again. Thanks for reading my post.
