STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - EVERYDAY I AM RUFFLING

Can't believe it's been twelve glorious years since I moved to the United States. It has been an awesome life and learning experience home-away-from-home. I know this place so well now, I have seen it all: from Bush to Obama to Trunk government and witnessed all: from all the highs to the lows, I now call this place my second HOME. So when Washingtonian Magazine asked me to partake their " I AM NOT A TOURIST I LIVE HERE " T-shirt campaign, I had to leap at the opportunity. 

The T-shirt is an ode to their 1976 cover design that featured the same vintage tee. A handful of local bloggers styled this t-shirt and this look was my take. The campaign is still in progress and all the looks are yet to be turned in, so stay tuned for a full campaign link coming up your way soon. 

Anyways, gingham has had a major comeback this season. I had seen dresses but when I spotted this skirt in the store, I had to buy it. The length is perfect and the ruffle hem makes it so fun and flirty. In case you decide to buy it, I would suggest sizing down, the skirt is really forgiving around the waist and hips. The shooties are a new addition to my arsenal. The sporty heel trend is another trend that will be huge this season. My closet is ready for this trend, is yours ??

MONDAY MOOD- DHOTI FUSION STYLE

As much as I love my western clothing, I never miss a chance to show some love to my Indian traditional clothing as well! Honestly speaking, I don't have much of traditional clothing, the lack of occasions to wear em as often justifies my situation, but whatever I have I try to repurpose them to create different outfits. For instance my custom made Dhoti-Kurta that I wore to NYFW last September with the mirrored embellished vest, post HERE, couldn't look any chicer than when paired with that belted banarasi dupatta ( stole ) and stilettos. 

My mom gifted me that dupatta ( stole ) last year and I had been looking for ways to incorporate that in my outfit. I did wear it once on a religious occasion with a sari, but for a self proclaimed closet-repurposing-queen i.e moi, it was of paramount importance to style the stole in multitudinous ways. I knew I wanted to pair the hot pink dupatta with something white, but the belt and coordinating sandals were impromptu and I didn't seem to mind them at all. It kind of elevates the look from being traditional to edgy-traditional.......which I like........what about you?

SEVEN THINGS I AM THANKFUL FOR THIS MOTHER'S DAY

Wishing a Very Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there- you guys ROCK !

When I say 'You Rock', I am entirely referring to the hard-like-rock side of you. The side of you that is strong, determined and dedicated. The side of you that strives to make life better for your child, your husband and your family, no matter what the situations are. Motherhood ain't easy and nobody said that ever. I am happy that today is Mother's Day- a day when the whole world salutes and thanks all Mothers, which I believe should be done everyday, irrespective. Thanks to the world of materialism, where everything is superficial and done merely per comfort. 

Anyways, this is our day- Mother's day. Today my child will thank me, make me a card, write me a poem and probably take me out for a fancy brunch and I wouldn't want it any other way. But it’s never been a holiday that I really stopped and gave much thought to as far as what is means to me. It is sad coz I love being a mother and there are a lot of things I'm always thankful for including....

- I am thankful for my child who is healthy, who is smart, who is growing. Without her I wouldn't have been a MOM, a nurse, a driver, a coach, a teacher and all the shoes I fill in today. When I see parents with a physically challenged child or a child with some chronic illness and the hardships they have to go through, my heart goes out to them, but I look up to God and thank him for keeping us all healthy.
