What I Wore: A Maxi Story


I have always been wary of Cable Knit sweaters since they look bulky on my skinny frame. However, I am yet to find any other piece of garment, that keeps you so warm without the addition of any other layers. I would rather be sitting at a cafe wrapped in the comfort of a sweater sipping my morning coffee than be stuck inside in this beautiful weather.

In today's outfit, I tried to balance out the bulkiness of a cable knit sweater with the free flowing form of a maxi skirt. I finished the outfit with a fringe bag and ankle boots.

What I Wore: Leather Skirt


I love a good leather look for fall and I stock up on leather skirts earlier in the year for exactly that reason. One of the days in October, the sun was shining and it was what you would call pleasant weather in this part of the world. Read that as perfect weather to break out the Leather minis and the knits. 

For today's outfit, I wore a white knit sweater from Marshalls with a faux leather skirt from H&M accessorized with a black bag and burgundy pumps.

5+ Closet Organization Ideas for the Baby's Nursery

I talked about moving houses in this post and the move is planned over the next few weeks. You will be seeing a lot of home decor related posts in the coming days because I have literally been hounding Pinterest for ideas for the last month or so. 

I am already starting to feel a little nostalgic about leaving this apartment. Even though, I have lived in this house for only 2 years, It is a place with so many special memories for me. Anyhow, Home is a feeling and we are all excited about it. 

We want to make the transition as easy as possible for our baby girl and I have been focusing on getting her room together, first. Today, I am sharing with you closet ideas for the baby's nursery that will make your heart melt. This closet organization ideas are very easy to execute. 

Via Project Nursery


The Use of Closet Shelving, Picture frames and a Dresser give this closet a clean look. The result is a clean yet eclectic closet 




Via Strawberry Swing and Other Things


A clever use of Ikea's Expedit shelf unit and Gold Dots pattern on the back wall makes this closet fun and functional. The different closet bars are a great way of segregating the clothes based on size or type.

Polar Opposites


The world we are living in has become so polarized. People have strong opinions and they express those opinions - sometimes freely, sometimes under a garb. I like people who know how to express their opinion but people who like to thrust their opinions on others are a different story, altogether. 

If I talk about motherhood in itself, there are varied opinions on each and every aspect of motherhood. You want to have a child or You don't intend on having one. You want to stay home with your children or You want to work so they can have a great future. You want to have a big family or focus your attention on just one child. All these channels of thoughts are  polar opposites. 

The thing is we don't stop at it. We don't stop at saying that Yes, I want a child or No, I would rather work and give my child a better future. We go a step ahead and tell others that see, I did it and so my way is the best way. I do not want children, so neither should you. I stayed at home for my children and so should you.

Why is it so hard for us to have perspective? Why is it so hard for us to walk a mile in someone else's shoes? Why have we suddenly become so polarized? 

Talking of Polarized, Today's outfit is all about polar opposites. I am wearing a crop top with a pair of trousers layered with a black cardigan. The accessories in this outfit are metallic heels, structured bag and a gold cuff. I have tried to mix up laid back elements with  work appropriate elements in this look.

What I Wore: Embroidered Dress ft. Daniel Wellington


I was recently contacted by Daniel Wellington to style one of their watches on this blog. I am a watch enthusiast and believe that nothing can elevate a look as much as a classic watch.

I picked up the Classic Sheffield Lady and it received the watch in a week's time. On opening the package, I realized this is a timepiece which proves that simple does not have to be boring. Whether you are attending a formal event, playing a game of tennis or enjoying a sunny day at the country club, This watch is suitable for every occasion.

In today's outfit, I am wearing an embroidered dress from Old Navy with a beaded necklace, animal print heels and a woven bag. I have accessorized the outfit with the Daniel Wellington Watch and a stack of rings. (I have shared my love for the watch on my Instagram Page here and here)
