What I wore in Newport

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.

Vintage Florals

 Life Begins when you’re at the end of your comfort zone!

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.

Road Tripping to Cape Cod

The rising tides lift up all the boats ~ John F Kennedy

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.

Beach day out

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.

A Perfect dress for a BBQ

This past Sunday our friends hosted a barbecue party at their place and it was so much fun! We discovered a beautiful and tranquil scene on our way to their place. We decided to stop at that picnic area to admire it and click some pictures. The reflection of the clouds and trees in the water gave it a beautiful mirror effect.

About the look – This cute short and sleeveless dress with a low-cut neckline at back, seam at waist, and flared skirt is from HM. This dress is only for $10 and comes in 10 different prints and colors- so many options. I couldn’t pass up this deal so I bought this in white with a blue floral print and another one in black with white polka dots. I usually wear size 2 or XS but I had to size up this dress. My wedges are from Payless Shoe source; very comfortable and reasonable as well. I have linked similar wedges below.  My cross-body bag and sunglasses are from Shopper’s Stop (India) but I have linked similar styles available in the US.

Easy Breezy Floral Dress for Summer

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.

Must have Picnic Essentials

WHETHER IT’S THE BEST OF TIMES OR THE WORST OF TIMES, IT’S THE ONLY TIME YOU’VE GOT!

The 4th of July was a really fun day for us. We shopped all afternoon, and in the evening, we went to see the best show Boston put on – Boston Pops’ concert, and the fireworks. We met with our friends and had a small picnic by the water at Charles River Esplanade. It was a relaxing time; we played some games, had home cooked snacks and watched the extravagant fireworks.

I am so happy to share my picnic look with you all. The fuchsia skort (shorts + skirt) and Polka dot t-shirt with puffy sleeves are both from Zara under $50 – This outfit I styled had a Kate Spade vibe to it. It’s classy and comfortable, especially for picnics. I love the ‘pop’ of color in the shorts. Let’s also talk about the must-have bag of the season – the Straw tote. I chose this neutral bag with the ‘color block’ design and colorful tassels on it. It’s a perfect bag for day trips and Picnics.

Ombre Dye Maxi Dress

Hello Loves! I have been having a wonderful time enjoying the long summer days. When it comes to styling outfits for summer, I love the good old maxi dresses. You cannot have enough of them in your closet for summer because they are perfect for picnics, beach outings, and even weddings. I recently bought this Blue maxi dress featuring an ombre dye wash, strapless cut, high neck, drawstring keyhole back, and an M-slit skirt. The fabric is very basic and soft. If you pair this dress with red sandals, it will make for a flawless outfit for 4th of July weekend. I wore this dress on our day trip to Martha’s Vineyard; it was comfortable and complemented the vibe of the Island.

Picnic at Castle Island

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.
