Owl Tee

My husband recently discovered a super cute tee shirt brand, Arka. Lucky for me, one of the shirts was too small on him so now it belongs to me. Don’t you just love when things work out like that!

Maxi Dress and Light Jacket

April 23, 2015

Gosh it feels so good when the weather gets nice enough to bust out a piece of clothing you haven’t worn in awhile. This cutout dress from Mono B is one that has stayed in my closet since last summer. The weather is not so warm that I can wear the dress on its own. But all is well because I’m loving the boho-chic vibe I get from the addition of the Zara jacket.

For those that follow us on Instagram, you probably already saw my hair struggle. Who knew that going from black to burgundy, or any color, would be such a hassle. I’m talking two appointments, lightening, dryer, etc., my hair resisting every step in the process. The burgundy finally took, unfortunately, you can only see it when the light catches. Le sigh! Struggles of having black hair.

In other news, I’m super in love with the dress over jeans trend! Who else is with me?

Hanging Out Tomboy

April 20, 2015

The weather this past weekend was so perfect in New York City. It’s the kind that’s bright and sunny, but not hot since the temperature is still on the cooler side and a gentle breeze rolls around every once in a while. This is my favorite kind of weather for dressing since it’s the kind that calls for light layering. For this look I decided to go a bit tomboy and borrow one of my hubby’s tie. He says I kind of look like I could be a member of Blue Brothers if I just switch up the hat. What do you think?

More Food

One of the places I was most excited to try while we were in Boston was Myers + Chang. They serve Dim Sum for brunch, but not in the traditional sense, i.e. the carts of dumplings and chicken feet. Their menu has options like: sweet + sour brussels sprouts, grilled corn with sriracha butter, fried egg banh mi, and nasi goreng. Basically a collection of different Asian dishes served on small plates. We ordered and ate as many items as we could without exploding, all of which were delicious. I will for sure return, if I’m ever back in Boston for a visit.

Boston Foodie

Boston Foodie

Gita and I are back from our Boston weekend. It should come as no surprise that our trip centered around food. What can I say, we just LOVE eating! In addition to finding a few places to eat via food and wine mag and local bloggers, we went on the Boston Foodie Tours as well. Although we did stick out as tourists, especially since we wore foodie tour stickers, it was a great way for us to find a few gems, AND taste the food they are famous for creating. Now that the weekend is over we’re back to eating healthy and hitting the gym, but no doubt we had fun pigging out and exploring the sights in Boston.

Essentials

Whew, sorry for the lag in blog posts lately. Gita and I both went out of town for Easter weekend, and now we are playing catch up in real life (and the blog). Funny how even a long weekend can throw you out of your daily routine.

Funny packing story for you. I usually pack light for a long weekend, only sticking with the essential toiletries, make-up, and clothing. My clothing normally consists of a dress, pair of jeans, a few tees, then I wear sneakers and a sweater on the plane. This time, don’t ask, I packed two tees, three pairs of jeans, and a dress — HUH? Needless to say my weekend wardrobe/blog posts will be limited due to a temporary brain malfunction while I was packing.
