THANKFUL FOR...

Happy Thanksgiving! We don't celebrate thanksgiving, but i just love how on this day everyone comes together as a family, and the day is filled with gratitude. On such a day, its hard not to join in and be thankful.

This year i am thankful for a lot of things, some of them are (in no particular order)

DIWALI OUTFIT: RESTYLING AN OLD SAREE WITH A TRENDY BLOUSE

Happy Diwali! Hope all Indian readers had a wonderful Diwali this weekend. Sweets are big during this festive season, and I made Gulab Jamuns to celebrate. They turned out great. I decorated our house with string lights and we invited few friends over for dinner, and ended up having a poker cards party after the dinner. All in all we had an amazing time with good food and better company. 

This year, Diwali was not even on my radar until two days before the festivities. I know, what i was thinking? So there was a lot of last minute planning, but it all came together so well, i couldn't be happier. I knew i was not going to buy anything new for Diwali. I haven't bought a new outfit for Diwali for three years now. Traditional wear shopping took a back seat after moving to Seattle, and i see no point in spending money buying something grand that i wouldn't get to wear frequently. So i have made peace with it, and have been finding different ways to repurpose the items i already have in my closet. You can see what i wore for Diwali back in 2014 here.

FOLLOW ME AROUND FRIDAY HARBOR, SAN JUAN ISLAND

On the first weekend of October we went to Friday Harbor in the San Juan Island for a weekend getaway with two of our friends. It was my first time there and i absolutely loved the town, the food and all the things we got to see, and do. So i thought i would share the tidbits here incase any of you are looking to plan your island getaway to Friday Harbor too. If you are looking to go to Orcas, here are some snapshots from our trip from two years ago.

FALL LAYERS IN FRIDAY HARBOR

Calvin Klein Trench(similar), Loft Jumper(similar),Teva Waterproof boots, Forever 21 Scarf(similar) and Hat(similar), Fleece lined Leggings(similar),Rayban Sunglasses
Fall is full on here in the Pacific north west. But before the temperature dropped further down we decided to accompany our friends on a weekend getaway to Friday Harbor last weekend. It's a cute little town in San Juan Island with lots to do and is famous for whale watching. This was my first time here and i had a great time. From Seattle, we drive to Anacortes ferry terminal, and from there we take an hour long ferry to Friday Harbor. The weather on the island was colder than out here on the mainland. So I decided to dress in layers to handle both chilly morning/evenings and warmer afternoons.

FALL/AUTUMN SHOPPING LIST: ANKLE BOOTS

One thing i was very excited about after moving to Seattle/America was Boots. Its true, because i had never worn boots till then in all of my life. So i was excited to create my winter wardrobe. As much as i dread the cold weather, i will endure it for cute boots. Now one might think that i would have bought a load of them in these 3 years. But you will be surprised to know that i have only two. In those two, one was a gift (bought using a gift card), so i actually spent money to buy only one boots in these 3 winters. And i call myself a style blogger, ha! Anyways, i think that i deserve one more boots for this upcoming winter, so my search begins.
