    Stripes + Side Ponytails

    Zara tunic, Jacob jean jacket, Amrita Singh necklace, Loft sunglasses, BCBG clutch, Aldo belt, and Banana Republic Shoes

    Last Sunday, aside from going for a moring run, I pretty much took it easy and lounged for much of the day. But we did make a last minute decision to hit our favorite local spot, Gaslight, for dinner. I threw on this striped tunic and added a few fun accessories to finish off the look. All summer long I have been wearing similar outfits consisting of easy breezy dresses, bold and colorful pieces of jewelry, and fun and inexpensive sunglasses.

    Coconut Macaroons

    A few weeks ago my parents were visiting us in Boston so I took them to Flour bakery for coffee and some sweet treats. Both of them are huge fans of anything with coconut so we decided to order the coconut macaroons.  And after having these delicious macaroons at the bakery I was inspired to try making them myself at home. Ok so it took me about two weeks to finally get around to making them but I am glad I did and I used the recipe from the Flour cookbook. The macaroons were super easy to make and they turned out exactly like they were at the bakery.  Next time I might try making bite size coconut macaroons with chocolate chips.

    Go Graphic

    Zara dress, Miu Miu shoes, Tory Burch cuff, Charles David clutch, Michael Kors watch

    After a busy Saturday consisting of attending a birthday party, shopping at Costco and Trader Joe's, and getting a car wash in preparation for our upcoming vacation, it was nice to get dressed up and have an adult evening out.  Aneesh and I met up with several of our friends for dinner at an Italian restaurant called Da Vinci in the South End of Boston. It was a great night out and the menu they featured for Restaurant Week  did not disappoint.

    And several weeks ago I popped into Zara to make a quick return but somehow I ended up leaving with this silk dress. Since I do not own a single item of clothing with bold geometric patterns I thought the dress would be a great addition to my fall/winter wardrobe.

    Something Old and Something New

    This week is Restaurant Week in Boston so several of my girlfriends and I got together last night for dinner at Sibling Rivalry in the South End.  It was nice catching up with everyone and of course it was a great excuse to get all dressed up on a Wednesday evening. I decided to wear this black lace maxi skirt which will also be a great piece to transition from summer to fall. I also wore these Stuart Weitzman sandals I scored on sale at Bloomingdales last week.

    And the last time I visited my mom she gave my sister and me several pieces of her vintage jewelry. This necklace (worn as a bracelet) and gold ring were both given to her over 40 years ago by her family when she got married.  I treasure and adore these items because they are sentimental and they are pieces I can pass on to Ariyana when she gets older.

    Wedding Weekend 

    This past weekend we attended a family friend's wedding in Washington D.C. and overall it was a fun weekend and really nice to catch up with several of Aneesh's childhood friends. But what was funny was when Aneesh arrived at the airport terminal to pick us up in a Fiat. Have you seen these cars? They are super cute Italian cars but very tiny. We could barely fit our luggage, Ariyana's car seat, and all three of us in this car. Needless to say we had to return to the rental car office and get a much larger and not so stylish vehicle for the weekend. 

    The best thing about Indian clothes is that my mom, sister, sister in law, and I can all share our outfits. My sister in law Hetal wore this outfit here and I loved it so I ended up borrowing it for the wedding reception this weekend. And I had to include these pictures of Ariyana because clearly she wanted to be in front of the camera this time around!
