Whats new?

It has been over 10 days that I have yet to pen a single article over here. I have genuinely missed the blog but I am short of hours to do what I loved doing. With an active new born, a whole new set of responsibilities and a demanding job, this has certainly taken and is taking the back burner in my life now. I had great vision and hope for the blog which will for now have to be shelved simply because I do not want to post just for the heck of posting and to rather save it from a painful slow death of going into oblivion. I love getting dressed for work and it still presents me with the same level of challenge that it did before, but I am simply not enthused enough to go out of my way to shoot the outfits I am wearing anymore. Priorities change and so has mine. It’s time I took a long break and leave the decision of coming back to re-writing open for now.

Motherhood is exhausting and exhilarating at the same time and I knew my life wouldn’t be the same again, I just overestimated my own capabilities of doing it all. What I do, I want to do it better and time will tell how well I do in life. If you are so inclined, you can find me and my outfits on Instagram. Someday I will reflect back at this blog and probably have a good laugh or be sad for not being able to continue. Whatever the emotion, I thank you profusely for supporting me till date and for encouraging me to do better. I certainly hope to return.

Stay well and cheers.

High- Waisted :: One dress many ways

First day of work after a break is always difficult. It is definitely compounded by the fact that now waking up in the morning on a weekday means you are up for good, and not going to be hitting the bed anytime soon either. We bid sleep a nice goodbye a while back though. Kick starting with a very simple outfit here. where I am wearing a dress last featured here as a top. I love to re-purpose my jersey dresses many ways so here is the most logical one of them. They are versatile and with the right kind of skirt, they can work really well.

I am keeping the first post short as a lot if hanging around on my mind today. Hope you have a fabulous week ahead, and again wishing you a very Happy New Year 2016! Stay well and Cheers!

2015 – The year of epic changes

Happy New Year 2016! Hope this year brings nothing but positive energy, love, joy and plenty of happiness in all your lives. It feels good to have left behind 2015 in more ways than one. The year went by in a jiffy anyways, and here we are, in 2016 already! The break I took has been fantastic! It has made me more motivated to come back to this hobby that I love a lot. It has also forced me to hit the gym and portion control my food else, everything in the kitchen counter would end up in my stomach. It has also made me realize the essence of time and just how important it is for the baby to nap longer. So I will take this opportunity to do a few things, first off, thank you for all your support, I understand you have plenty of choices and yet you have supported me, and for that I am forever grateful, secondly, I wanted to look back at the year that 2015 was and recount few of my outfits that were a hit. I continued to go to work and blog till the very end of my pregnancy, so here’s hoping the Maternity category will be of help and you can find some inspiration if you are contemplating on expanding your family or are now expecting, in which case, hearty congratulations!!

We rang in the new years with our closest of friends and danced till the wee hours. When the body is not used to much movement, the next day after a night of crazy dancing is nothing short of treacherous!  How did you celebrate the eve and ring in the new years? Thank you once again for supporting this blog and hope you will continue to do so in this new year as well.

Best wishes and cheers!

Holiday Break

Its that time of the year again. Beautifully lit houses and streets everywhere, festive music and the cheer of the holidays is upon us. This year for the holiday season though I have decided to sit back, relax and spend every fleeting moment with my new and extended family. Spending time with the little one as he grows up so fast is such a luxury that I am not willing to give it up for anything. I will probably be a little active over here but otherwise this blog is a hobby and I intend to maintain it as such. Meanwhile make merry, stay cheery and enjoy a fun filled and joyous holidays with your family and loved ones. Those who celebrate, here’s wishing you an early Merry Christmas. Wishing you also a very happy new year 2016! Will meet you on the other side of 2015. Stay happy and healthy.

Of late I have really been gravitating more towards jogger pants. They are very comfortable and yet look like work wear approved pants! I wore this one yesterday for instance and in this one in the last post. They are easy to pair and go along with a multitude of different styles. I am looking forward to pairing them with blazers and summer tops. I bought this Cashmere sweater on Black Friday for less than $30 from Macy’s. Of course that means I bought them in several different colors and stocked up my winter wardrobe. Neither do they pill or itch like some of the other sweaters nor do they shrink in size. I have owned several of them previously and I can stand by them even in sleep!

We don’t necessarily celebrate Christmas, but we celebrate the holiday spirit. It gets so festive and pretty everywhere, its just very uplifting. Exactly what I need sometimes. Hope you have a great weekend ahead. Have you decorated your house or tree yet? What is the best part of the celebration for you? Share a thought and stay well!!
