OOTD: Wedge Sneakers

I had been on the hunt for a budget-friendly pair of wedge sneakers for a while and eventually, I gave up. Over the summer when I was interning at New Balance, I had to do store visits and during one of those store visits, I saw this pair at DSW and my search finally came to an end! Well, I finally had a pair of wedge sneakers and then came the million dollar question - How on earth do I style these things? Of course, I Googled it but it was all pictures of celebrities wearing em and clearly, I'm not tall and skinny like them so that didn't help much.

OOTD: Crochet Shorts

Pardon the look on my face - it had just started raining! :(
Over the years, I've seen many a shorts that I loved at first sight, but they never loved me back. When I laid eyes on these shorts though, they look back at me and I knew they loved me back! So, I brought them home with me. I was dying to take them out on a date but it's been too cold the past couple weeks. Yesterday, however, the weather was warm enough so, we went out together to run errands.

The 5-Minute Face

With Fall setting in and the days getting shorter and shorter, my motivation to get up in the morning has become non-existent! I catch myself hitting snooze over and over, not wanting to get out of bed.
In an attempt to save precious time in the morning, I have tried my best to simplify my make-up routine to just the basics - a technique that takes just 5 minutes!

10(ish) Shoes Every Woman Should Own

So, a few weeks ago, I "rotated" all my shoes. I think I own over 60 pairs, not including sneakers, flip flops, and sandals; and I rotate them twice a year to prepare for spring/summer and fall/winter. Anyways, as I was in the middle of this project, I realized that there are some shoes that I wear ALL the time, but most of them have been worn a few times, if that - I'm sure this is the case with a lot of women! That's where the motivation of this post comes from. So, from my personal experience and feedback from my awesome twitter followers, I've come up with the 10 shoes that every woman should own -

End of Summer Rehab

Hello Fashion Lovers!
I’d like to start off by thanking my bestie- Dhruvi Brahmbhatt for convincing (and nagging me :P) into the world of blogging. Not only is she an amazing friend and my partner in crime, she has been a great support and influence in my life and even in my fashion sense. Her ability to effortlessly put together trendy colors, prints, and textures that I could never even conceive has helped me evolve and develop my own individual sense of style. Thanks boo <3
By profession I am a Biomedical Engineer for the U.S. Army (Yeah- im kinda a nerd) but to any of those who have walked into my office, you’ll find more copies of Cosmo, Glamour, Lucky and Allure than any scientific journals or papers. I’ve always had a great interest in fashion and beauty for as long as I remember. I recall sitting around with my cousins – dressing them up with different outfits, trying new hairstyles, makeup trends and playing “spa”. Looking your best on the outside is definitely a reflection of how you feel on the inside- when you look your best, you feel your best. I also don’t believe that one should hide behind clothes and make-up, they are only accessories to highlight your true inner beauty!
