A first in five years!

Can you believe this! I have been blogging for five years, and this is my first ever outfit post. Oh well, there is always a first time for everything. So here goes.



This is what I wore to office today. My workplace, and my job profile as a writer does not require a formal dress code. I dress up for comfort, as Mumbai is an unpredictable city, and many a times, I have to walk home in the evenings. So footwear has to be comfortable on all days. I often carry a "shoe bag", or a flat pair of shoes to wear on my walk back home.

Bolero : A shop in Colaba, Mumbai
Tank : Zara
Bangles : From a streetside vendor in New Delhi
Jeans : Levi's
Shoes : From an export surplus store in Agra

Oh, and since we are doing Firsts, I am five followers away from 100. How about a 100 Followers Celebration Giveaway? What say, bloggers?

Congrats on 100 followers! I loved you sharing your outfit. Although I'm sure it's a bit different, I too learned very quickly how to survive in a large somewhat unpredictable city when I lived in Rome. It truly was! A good percentage of the time, one can count on a protest of some sort to block bus routes, and at that point we have no choice but to all exit the bus and walk home. That happened many times, and in the rain too. I always carried extra shoes.

Hope you had a great weekend, my friend!
