Road trip: Mahabaleshwar

We decided to go on a road trip outside of Pune one Saturday. Just less than 200km from the city is Mahabaleshwar (pronounced maableshar), a hill country. According to the net, Mahabaleshwar is famous for strawberries , its view points, lake...It is supposed to be cooler because located on higher ground.  We went by car. A less than three hour ride turned into a four and a half hour drive. First in a road on a mountain, a truck had some problems and could not go forward, blocking the entire road. We miraculously manage to turn around only to end up in another traffic jam. There was another road with only one lane that impatient drivers managed to turn into four lanes. The drive after that was smoother. But upon arriving in Mahabaleshwar, it became crazier. We reached our location at Kates point with hardship as the road was narrow and there was not enough parking. The view was nice enough but I kept on wondering why we had to pay 10 rupees (entrance fee) for a place that was so dirty. …

Pretty Printed Pink

Did I tell you that I was into printed pants lately. Blame it all on the Indian women I see wearing all kinds of printed colorful Dothi (btw is it Dothi or Dhoti?) pants (think Harem pants). I was actually going to purchase Dothi pants or Patiala (those often come with a matching scarf) since they are so comfy but I always chicken out at the last moment. The Dothi pants I want need to have an elastic waist band (they often come with just a string waist and I really do not trust that), and I do not want them hanging extra low (I already have a big butt, I am not willing to accentuate it).

With these conditions, I am still looking.

But that did not stop me from breaking these pink printed capri pants that I bought last Winter. They are so bright and I was glad they still fit me. I wish they were a little longer but they are Capri so what did I expect. I think I will try to class them up next time I wear them with a nice blouse and so…

Wardrobe malfunction

Celebrities have been subject to wardrobe malfunction once or twice on the red carpet. Most recently, Eva Longoria got exposed at Cannes. Frankly that is what you get for wearing plunging neckline and dress with high slits (and going commando)
Anyway, today I had my own wardrobe malfunction but contrary to some stars it was on purpose and I did not flash anyone.
I have this dress that I love but does not fit me anymore. The side zipper does not want to close. I was not willing to wait for the back fat to melt to enjoy the dress so I decided to wear it as is and layer with a cardigan.
This inspired me to find ways to wear my tight clothes. If you are curious, read my solutions here.

Dress- tailor made
Cardigan - People by Allen Solly
Leggings - Reliance Trends
Shoes - bought at Sahara fair
Earrings - Globus

I am really happy with the results. The cardigan is in a soft material but still a bit heavy for this weather. Nevertheless I like it so much I got another one in red. By Winter I …
