Indianizing Christmas Day outfit :)

Remember the blog post I wrote last year Indianizing St. Patricks Day outfit
You don't, do you?
Then sprint over to that post first.

Ok, now that I have your attention.. 

Please note that I am back to blogging.. as always. I now started calling myself as "Occasional blogger" after I realised that I can't be regular here anymore. Though I have been reading other blog posts quite regularly, but writing one has become so hard for me. So I hope I will let myself have this tag at-least. 

While I was chilling on this 5days long weekend break loading myself with sugar, I decided to do this Chrismassy post. It is a beautiful time of the year everywhere and what more than dedicating it with a red outfit!
This dress is one of my all time favorites and very special. Its a simple ready-made dress (which I stole from my sister 😬). The color and fitting instantly caught my eye and I love it more for the mesh fabric and dupatta. I paired it with antique colored jewellery and brown san…

Stealing Mom's sari

It's hard to come across an Indian female who has never worn a sari. I, myself haven't been much of a sari person, except for weddings where I am allowed to sit at place so I could hold it together :)
But when I do wear, I am totally in love with them. Especially the simple light weight saris in which I can just walk around like I want and not call mom every time for help. It's the getting-used-to-it thing. 

If I may say proudly, my mom loves me in saris. She wishes I wear them more frequently. She says they suit me better than other outfits.. she thinks they go well with my height or personality. Not sure how she relates them to it but insert *shy* emoji here. 

So when I asked mom if I can borrow this sari of hers, she was more than happy and welcomed me to own the sari with open hands. And I wore it on an Indian festival. 
I usually like the compact version of sari draping to keep it in tact. My mom's blouse doesn't fit me, so here I paired it with a crop top of my l…

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

Indianizing Saint Patrick's day outfit

Ok. Neither I live in Ireland nor do we celebrate it in Norway. But I realised very late that today is Saint Patricks day and started to look through my gallery to post something when I found these flashback pictures which I felt are apt for the occasion.. with the prints on the dress and leaves behind. Just that it is an Indianised version :) 

For the unknown, St. Patricks day is celebrated in Ireland with green costumes and is related to christianity. 

I felt a bit funny to post this.. but I'm also surprised not to find a single picture from Indian fashionistas showcasing for the day. Why not! I, anyway never had a chance to post these pictures on the blog. So I decided to post them away. Could you find something Indianized? Leave the link in the comments.

A trip to winter wonderland: Tonstad, Norway

Have you ever wondered what Scandinavians do in the cold, windy, dark winters? They visit the mountains. They stay at cabins. They ski.

I know the other part of the world must be thinking if I'm crazy to talk about winters and snow in March as you are probably approaching or already approached warmer season. But remember, we live in the North? The cold is still happening here and we're just back from our winter break coping up with the on and off cold climate. Exciting no?
Basically when you live in Scandinavia, you'll see 2 categories of people in winters. One which goes to a warm place like Spain to skip the dark winters and get some sun and tan. The other goes to mountains to ski and embrace more snow. I'm definitely in the latter category.. despite the fact, that I sometimes still get annoyed of dressing up in too many layers and the darkness. But as they say, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing!

When we were invited by our friends to their old traditional priv…
