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. . .
2015. What? That went by fast. And I thought the above image of my hometown that I took on the the 8th of January, to be specific, would bode well with that of this post being the first this year etcetera, etc. Oh, happy new year. And thank you for continuing to hover over this space, tummy jiggles when I read the 'we can wait no longer but we will' comment on the last post. People are so nice. This post is the start of an attempt at maintaining some sort of attendance here again, whether partial or regular so wish me luck. I had no idea how I would start this post or on what after such a long absence so I leave you with the two images below that I took today. I might have just ruined the complementary purpose or the aesthetic of what it means to create a collage with the two images below forgive me. Just a what I wore and a what I ate this morning and a start-me-up to this space really. Until further attempts materialize, bye bye.
Me standing like I'm mourning in baby pink. I mean mourning and baby pink in one sentence? Sounds quite awful. That stance is mortifying actually but I get awkward mostly so they're not really intentional or premeditated stances I'm secretly employing as signature stances.. just to clear the air.. if it needed any clearing perhaps. So this was an official date dress and that just there is another mortifying statement and my expression above there says otherwise but boy was I excited to wear a dress in this particular length again. Well GO BABY PINK.
1. And with this not so recent purchase marks my entry into the business of official hat-toting-dom.. Wazaaaa! 2. On a brilliantly sun scorching morning we weren't prepared for, I managed to snag these books for 30 bucks each, a magazine and a Star Wars encyclopedia for the brother all for a whopping 270 bucks. There's nothing like book-nerding cheap eh.. 3. That cold late afternoon in February on a grocery run in my usual garb..and those plastic bags were literally weighing me down and I remember trying to take this shot without my arms wobbling from the weight. These boots were all I literally wore since November.. I had such a good run with her these past months and with summer beckoning I'm having minor anxiety issues about putting them away. I'm sure you can relate to it when you've adopted the 'buy two shoes a year' policy.
