First, Happy 2016.
I feel like an intruder lurking about on this space.
Feels eerily strange to be here - pasting above image, typing and editing this out.
Anyway, that, above, is the film Grandma.
I watched it two days ago, still wallowing in it.
Hence the rather abrupt decision to share it here amidst long absences.
Because it's probably one of those films I thoroughly enjoyed.
Since, maybe, Lone Survivor, The Town. And more.
Yes, I'm more of the war/action genre geek.
Basically anything that involves a group in combat gear on a reconnaissance mission and the words, delta, echo, india being tossed about. Okay geeking out already. Stop it right there.
Well, never mind not having shared anything here for months.
And with the references in the film, it helps if you have some sort of a background in literature, whether concrete or fleeting. It definitely made me laugh just a little bit harder and thought it'd be a great first post to start the year with, if more posts materialise, ever.

If we go back to the bevy of past posts, outfits have more been formal or could be better characterised as stuff I would wear on an occasion unless stated otherwise on a particular post. So this blog has always been more of a dress up and play blog.... but if time and punctuality can be afforded for this space it will be my endeavour to post more of the everyday stuff that we all wear.
Wore this on a gloomy day last month for a day out with a friend, for the record.

Hmm... what is it about this outfit that makes me feel really grown up ?
Anyway, this outfit was assembled purely around those powder blue socks up there.
P O W D E R B L U E.
Pooling those two, namely the socks and the cow dung-y coloured shift of a dress is just magical colour-wise, more than anything else.

These pictures are from a few days back. Took our Nanny for a day-out. The skies were grey, it was gloomy, the rain was coming down on us every 40 minutes or so, and knowing about the day's forecast and being initially peeved about it, we were pumped once we were out the door so it was perfect. Lolling about on park benches then taking a sharp historical detour from there to soak up the sights at India Gate then more walking.. towards the North and South Blocks. And finally, up till the President's home quarters. I sometimes forget how beautiful this area is. And there below is a torso portrait of me - my raincoat playing match-y - match-y with the giant flower pots, the flowers and the buildings even. Until the next post. . .
