Quick update here. Oh hello. 
Flowerbombing it with this top yet again.
One of the few things I picked up during my short rain-spelled holiday.

Inspiration Tray

Been too long since one o' these posts.
Was a darn good pretty slew eh?
Some images new, some that have been decaying in my hard drive..
I'm still terrified of wearing white colored items, not that I'm opposed to the color (white walls any day) - so hopefully the last two images will give me that much needed final resolve to wear white SOME DAY! And I really can't recall all the image sources but if I have your image somewhere here please feel free to shoot an email and will give due credit. Thank you.

Have a good night Kids.

 Hello again.
I've managed a decent outfit post in such a long time it almost feels 'not normal'.
Dug up this old skirt - I sort of wanted to feel what it was like to wear a skirt again - because I haven't ventured out in this particular length in such a long time I felt like I'd forgotten what it was like to swish around in these. And finally got Fjallraven's Kanken Mini in black so super crazy excited about it, it's all I carry around these days. I think I need to get the Classic ones too - never mind the hefty price tag. Who's with me? Anyone? 

Until the next post, have a good night!

Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013

Hello blog, people and the alien community too if, there are any out there.
I am back home in the hills for a short holiday and it is *expletive* amazing here.
First and foremost, I would like to thank and acknowledge the kind people over at Cosmopolitan India and their readers for nominating this blog for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013 - to nail it down, it's for the Personal Style Category Section so YAY! And moments like this can get you all contemplative and rather giddy because I don't believe anyone starts a blog to get famous but the little recognition and response or the kind readers that this wee old blog of mine has garnered over the years can be pretty overwhelming. People are so nice. THANK YOU.

The mere mention of my blog from people and by people, I mean strangers and even friends and family literally is mortifying for me. Here's what usually happens.

Stranger: OH, I went through your blog, it's really nice.

Me: My blog? I don't have a blog. It must be someone else's.
Stranger: You have a blog right? You're Esther and *trails off*.....

Me: No, no... that's not me. No, sorry.

It's almost four years now since I started this blog and as I grow older, the most significant change fashion-wise would be how extremely FUSSY I have become with regard to the clothes I like. It's almost annoying because It's not easy to come home empty-handed when your prior intent was to get a few staple T-Shirts but on the other hand, it is extremely liberating to be completely sure of what you like and don't - it makes me feel really mature because I still feel like a kid - y'know, like the kid who wants a unicorn and goes crazy at your local kids stores. I'm deviating so before I take your leave, you can vote for my blog here and below are a few pictures from my Instagram Diary for a little visual update. And come follow me there @lalaifanai.
