Can this Fashionista Mom..be a good Mom??!! β£οΈπŸ€”πŸ˜ŽπŸ’­πŸšΊβ‰οΈ

What’s the definition of a good mother? Who has defined what an ideal mother should be like? Am I one of those good & ideal mom’s the world admires ?? 

Well why do we mom’s even need to think about all these questions? Is it because I feel am being judged all the time! Think so yes… I feel a section of society or few from even my family take me by doubt if I think what to wear today or take 10 mins extra to put on my make up? 

Do you love your baby…Yes, ofcourse ..I do!! Why are you even asking me…

Do you love fashion…Yes, I do!! 
But how can you be 200% “The Mommy” if you aren’t thinking about your baby, his food, his routine…blah..blah..and stopping at your wardrobe thinking about which clothes to wear for work tomorrow! 

The world wants the mothers to be on their toes all the time either taking care of the babies, or cooking, or cleaning, or taking care of seniors, or … basically is busy doing something for others rather than herself!!…ugghh..stupid!  Well I had to grow up and grow out of this…AND so should you girl!!

Am a working mom and besides being the best mom in the world I have to prove myself the best at my job as well…Fashion derives my passion! Whichever job you maybe in but you can’t look like as if you are disinterested and coming to your job is just a.. you know.. routine thing…or you have any less interest in your job than your colleagues…

So you got to get up and take notice of yourself…stare yourself in the mirror and see if you wish to change anything…

Your baby is in love with you already…he doesn’t wants his mom to be loving him w/o loving herself. Just plan your day in such a way that you can take out some time for yourself, keep yourself motivated, pray or meditate for a while, exercise regularly even if for 10 mins, eat healthy, dress well. Your baby is the magic you created and you can keep him as happy as you feel from within!!

As I always say, keep it simple yet stylish!! 

How & What I am wearing : 

1) Wear on your basic jeggings @only with a comfy crop top @forever21 ; comfy all day long ballerina from @H&M and put on a biker jacket 100% leather to give yourself that edge at your workplace

2) Slip in a nice knee length dress, make sure the fit is right. {In case of bulges please workout and wear those aweful uncomfortable shapewears…} Accessories to add on will be your shades, watch, statement earrings, ring, bag and wedge heels for comfort

3) Patterned printed stretchable pants and w/o sleeves ivory silk shirt with Chinese collar from  @vanhausen . Throw on a blazer to get that semi formal office look. Again wedge heels for comfort and hair bun for fun!!

Stay inspired, Stay stylish!!

“Aww…”has to be my Favorite word & emotion..!! What’s yours? Share here…

Awww…my baby!! Aww…thats such a sexy piece… I need it in my wardrobe!! Aww….you all are just so sweet guys!! Aww…that’s so beautiful…! Aww…I don’t believe that this just happened to me….

Above is how am in my life! Full of Aww ‘s…πŸ’•

The biggest two aww moments in my life are (1) My Marriage (2) My Motherhood…I LOVE my babies to and from the bottom/ core of my heart! (Husband = A big baby) πŸ’–πŸ‘£πŸ’

 I never got my dream boyfriend which I wanted for the longest time in my early twenties!! Finally I decided to agree to the idea of arranged marriages. Luckily I found love there… lots of it!! I guess like all girls, getting married was making me anxious..leaving my mom, bro, home all behind was big for me ; I was preparing myself to adjust myself into a new family, relationships, new family rules, etc . But I was definitely looking forward to becoming someone’s life partner, sharing love and food… Excitement and hope of having lots of laughs & sex together (guess my favorite part ❣️)…so overall it was a bag of mixed emotions. 

Then after 5 years we were ready to go to the next level..so the baby was planned and by God’s grace our son arrived in the next 9 months!! What a planning 😎 The moment I had this 3.7kg tiny little life in my hands, I knew that in my life from here on I can’t love anyone or anything more than this soul in this world!!  πŸ‘Ά To join back work after I had my baby was one of the toughest emotional battle I fought with myself.. actually …this emotion was even more stronger than the anxiousness of getting married and the thought of leaving your family
I don’t enjoy my work now as I did earlier… all I want now is run back straight home after work… cuddle & laugh & play with my bundle of joy!! Motherhood gave me something else… Something what words fail to explain..Happiness, a sense of achievement, an excitement, a hope , a belief and believe me much more that that…which possibly can’t be explained. Its something which you can only experience…as a parent…as a mother!

We all have our love and weaknesses for somebody on this earth…could be anyone for you!! The one for whom our hearts beat or could even miss a beat…

Whoever you love in this world, just make sure it’s always from the heart..don’t try to show anything to the world . It should be just for the two of you..to feel, to believe, to fall upon..Even if distances are more ,  try and not miss that one thing in your relationship which you both couldn’t live without at one time..

Keep loving & spreading love all round you, be hopeful, be patient, be adorable

Share you story with me here…let’s share and celebrate the loves of our very being…
Love, Sujata πŸ’•

I have nothing to WrItE BUT I will…and you must ReAd…

Why am I writing here when I have nothing specific to share!!?? Why am I trying to think..think hard…what am I trying to think??!!        Is it about life..my life..your life…about my child’s future life… strange…Donn know what.! Seriously!!  But exactly that’s the thought…does it happens to you..!? Am sure it does…we all keep thinking, keep our brains busy almost all the time. Thinking about what to do next, or why did we did something in the past…Our thoughts keep wandering without any anchor and we just don’t know where to pull ourselves back or put a stop on our brainless use of our own brains…

Somekind of passion, somekind of craziness….my stupid heart is talking about all these hundreds of things to me …

What’s the fun in talking sense always…its good to just flow in your thoughts and come to no exact conclusions… thinking about your past & present failures and successes with life, love, marriage, relationships, academics, work life, expectations, parents, affairs, bosses, crushes, travels, what I could have shopped that day, the street side vendor, my maid’s kids, an Ambani’s life, Shahrukh Khan, Branjila’s divorce, anything…

Believe me it will refresh you in a new way..

Goodnight peeps. Sleep tight, dream well..& those who are starting their day, rise and shine..be radiant ..like always. Remember “You are better than your competition…”

Love, Sujata πŸ’•

P.S. Thanks to my baby who slept well on time today & my husband who’s surprise presentation preparation at office today gave me this ME time with myself..and now I will sleep tight..sleep light …

My SiX yards of LovE…!! Timeless Elegance… Incredible Indian Handlooms πŸ‘£

This Fashionista MoM loves wearing her saree…its the 6 yards of pure sexyness i bet any lady can resist wearing and any men admiring!! Be it India or around the world… 

Compliments every body type..short or tall, fat or thin, size 12 or size 2…big boobs or small hips…it won’t let any one down!! I wore sarees on the traditional pujas & ceremony during my last trimester and the results were just so cute!! These beauties can make even a big difficult to move football look so graceful and elegant. {Let me know if you wanna get a glimpse and I will share my pics }

I totally believe that Saree = Elegance Personified =Sexy =Classy = Timeless 

Even after post delivery when you are still there with a pair of enlarged size of breasts and a kangaroo pouch attached to yourself with loads of stretch marks….the sarees were one of my most favorite pieces to hide all these imperfections ! 

I love my Indian handlooms and vouch for them. My love for handlooms is pretty much known & evident in my social circle. I leave no chance of dressing up myself & now a days my lil one in these beautiful handloom weaves from our different Indian villages. My better half also is one of the “Kurta & kolhapur chappal loving guys”…We are lucky to have stores like @fabindia @anokhi @nalli @goodearth and many others such outlets which help us to buy these textures so conveniently. Adding links to my favorite stores for easy ref  https://www.goodearth.in/ ; http://www.fabindia.com/ ; http://www.nalli.com/ ;  http://www.anokhi.com/anokhi/our-shops.html

My latest love is wearing these traditional handloom sarees with a twist!! The fusion twists are explained & shown via pics below…so go on reading guys…its not over yet..

Here am wearing an Indigo saree from @nalli…a must have color…block printed on Chanderi Silk. For the twist part, I teamed it up with an ivory silk @Van Heusen top. I love silver jewellery , those jhumkas are to die for!! If you don’t own silver jewellery…you are absolutely missing on something very big sweetie…My ladoo baby wears a @fabindia kurta pyjama with elan and rocks the look!! 

In my next am wearing a rust color Maheshwari print saree from the villages of west begal (East of India) The fabric is 100%cotton and super comfy fabric. Twist is the drape…this drape is called the “Dhoti Saree”… If you wish to wear, tutorials are available on YouTube easily..or tell me I will send you the link I used to drape it. Again teamed with a top and a bag my friend got me from Bangkok streets … I repeat my silver necklace here!! 

In my last ( but not the least) look am wearing again a very traditional cotton handloom saree from down south. I especially requested one of my sothindian colleague to get it for me. I was in love with the feel of sheer purity and radiance this saree gives you … drape it traditionally, wore some traditional gold jewellery, add fresh flowers to your hair and you will look no less than a godess yourself. 

Feel like a Diva, swim like a lotus amidst the sea of admirers…drape these are feel like the most gorgeous women on planet earth…am sure the men will agree !! 

Be Stylish, Stay Inspired !!

The Colorful Outing!! #travel πŸœπŸš—πŸ“ΈπŸΉ#lifeβ˜€ #love πŸ’ž#motherhood πŸ‘Ά#fashion πŸ’„ #photoblogging πŸ‘’πŸ‘ πŸ“Ώ

This blog is dedicated to our recent holiday amidst the sea of sand, blue & the golden cities of colorful Rajasthan. To my non Indian friends…Rajasthan is among the one of the top travel destinations for travellers around the world, Richie rich to back packers ..it interests both alike!! The place for destination weddings and royalty all over!! #travel 

With every sparking job comes the stress related to it. Please picture my loving husband entering our lovenest..who most of the times can be seen wandering with a phone in his hand, either talking or checking on something on it. His job is the “other women” in our lives. Not so far behind is my job which is like the “essential boyfriend” you see…with the ever increasing expenses of living in a metropolitan city in any country of the world… raising a child..comes the burden of increasing the monetary sources. My job is something like a cushion to fall back on…or a way to pay all my maids who run my household in real terms…or to maybe take some holidays like these!! Husband’s salary is the bread, butter & gems of the household. #life 
So my always so busy husband wanted to take us all on this road trip to Rajasthan ..for a long long time. Finally he started planning in the year beginning and with his constant push Me, my in-laws, my parents, my brother, my cousin and my uncle aunt agreed for this big long trip. I was sceptical of being on the roads for such long hours with a little kid and ageing parents but he managed to brainwash all of us brilliantly!  #love  

Knock..knock…Oops am not talking about fashion. Ok..ok …I will come to that later…promise!! 
What fun days we had..these 7 days were like we were on Christmas holidays after a lifetime! with our beautiful family around 24×7 ….peeps seriously you should all plan for these family holidays at least once an year…You will know what you were missing once you do it. Trust me!!

My lo had the most fun! Treated like a prince…by family , by all in the state of the Royals @rajasthan @rajasthantourism 

Since Rajasthan = Sand…the days are hot and nights cold. Accordingly I packed both summer and light winter clothing for my so . 

You can see him in the pics wearing both short & long sleeves shirts. Light weight full sleeves t-shirts & pants. Comfy covered shoes are a must. Hats and shades to protect from sun…don’t forget to apply @neutrogena sunscreen lotion before leaving for outdoors

Now MY fashion – the very moment my husband was planning the trip, all i was planning was what will I be wearing on this holiday. And I choose Ethnic , traditional, colorful outfits hands down. Rajasthan stands for royalty, colors, warmth, energy, passion…you don’t want to go there dressed in plain denims. And also since this was a family thing, I decided for no skin show. 


LOOK 1 :
Our 1st outing was of Mehrangarh fort @jodhpur which is named as Blue city too. I choose to wear a parrot green SalwAr KamEez from @nalli for this day outing. My Indian friends must be well aware of the south Indian brand / shop @Nalli . For my non Indian friends @Nalli is a very famous old renowned brand from the south of India where you get excellent traditional sarees and dress material. The flowy printed chiffon duppta adds to the feminity, #shades from @rayban , #jewellery from @pinwheels , #shoes from @tresmode and my usual hair bun !! 

LOOK 2 : This outing is at Umaid Bhawan, Jodhpur. I choose to go more comfortable and a little nomadic with this look. A long local boutique made Kurta on handloom fabric . Ripped denims and leopard printed pumps from @h&m , #shades repeat as above, usual bun ( bangs is kind of new addition to my hair cut) , #silverjewellery from local market

LOOK 3 : Reached the golden city of Jaiselmer. The city is all gold and yellow in color and so is my outfit.  I choose to wear this SalwAr KamEez from @nalli again. Loved the bright colors. #shades from @guess, #shoes from tresmode , #jewellery from @westside , highlight is the half hair bun..which is among the top hair trends currently! 

As I always promote and motivate… Be inspired!! Stay stylish!!

Inhibitions of a bikini wearing “Mom body”….πŸ‘™πŸ’„πŸ‘’πŸ³πŸ– #motherhood, #fashion, #love, #life

Being an Indian, wearing bikini on pools & beaches is still a taboo.! We  (Indians) still go on beach vacations and look for white skinned bikini wearing ladies …Men for obvious reasons & for ladies; they take them as the next level of our holiday goals!!

Our Indian men are still not comfortable entirely in having their moms, wife’s, sisters around them in this wonderful piece of clothing. Its still the “sexy” thing for them…

Am fortunate to not have a husband or a brother or a father like that!! Thank Goodness!! πŸ’• But the above is not the point am trying to make through this post. My reason of writing this post is to entirely help & elevate all the co-moms here…who struggle to come back to shape after having a baby and still want to wear her bikini !! Am here to push them to let down her inhibitions and completely love herself and her body after delivering the miracle of their lives…πŸ‘Άβ€

In the pictures am on my holiday in Thailand, Phuket with my husband & baby (baby then 1 yr 2 months old,  is sleeping, great!)….where I dared to wore the bikini with not being in the perfect bikini shape….I loved my MoM shaped body and just wanted to enjoy and relax and have some fun!!

This bikini I wore in various ways and pictures will show them to you for inspiration. 

1. I wore it with a crochet shift dress on top of it. Statement shades increase the glamour quotient #rayban 

2. My other look was with wearing a flowery float printed kaftan over this.. Add some chunky jewelry to complete the look..#accessorize neckpiece #guess shades #monsoon kaftan 

3. I always promote hair buns for we MoMs

You can create your very own look and be fashion ahead..

So bring out your favourite bikini from the closet and flaunt your perfect or NoT so perfect mommy body! Who cares…??!!

Enjoy the sun ladies..! Be Inspired!!

Love,

Life of Fashionista Mother! πŸ’ž #fashion Β #motherhood #love #life

I started writing blogs because of my 2.5 year old son & my love for fashion. They are my reasons. While I would put him to sleep daily night singing lullabies I would often think what after this. ..and ended up on social networking sites just browsing crap.

He generally dozes off by 10ish and I can’t sleep before 11.30 ( old habits die hard) !!…So springed the idea of writing something in this “ME” time…My journey began with Google, looking for apt answers for my questions…

– What are blogs ? (Complete world is either busy writing or reading one)

– How are they written? (Since I left creative writing ever since left school)

– Who reads them? (I never did earlier if not promoted by my friends, until I got my own blog started)

Finally I gathered myself and wrote something about that crossed my thoughts first and closest to my heart…that was FASHION, LIFE & MOTHERHOOD..( If you happen to read them…well…God save you…its a “khichdi”..as we Indians say)

So cheers to My son that I could come up with something meaningful other than my home & work life! And to deep dive into My love for Fashion…Mwahh…

The toughest thing to do after you become a mother is to dress up, dress up well…When at home I was a “one of the boobs out of my shirt always” mom! And then grabbing anything to wear when getting ready for office. Always short of time…not wanting to spend time on thinking about clothes.. Whenever shopping it’s always baby stuff on mind…If you think of dressing up, the baby poops …The list can go on & on…

Though I was in the happiest mode of life with the arrival of my bundle of joy ; Somewhere deep inside I was missing my Fashionista Self! My preggers days were fashionable too…so what happened to me now???…I kept thinking if I was really happy from within …I surely love my child..nothing gives me a greater sense of satisfaction, love, belonging than him..but I wanted to love myself too! Without feeling guilty…without being over whelmed with the suggestions & advises on how to keep my baby well, how to take care of him, who should be my priority, how will I attain the highest space in  ladder of motherhood by sacrificing myself…

So after months of initial struggle I finally could break my own created shell and started dressing up the way I used to, I love to!! And bonus was being able to dress up #mylittleman #mymunchkin fashionably as well!! Brownie motivation for me…

So would like to share some simple tips on young & fresh moms on dressing up:

1. Keep it simple, slip in a nice dress – always works with the little baby bump left too

2. Tie your hair in a bun so it doesn’t bothers your child, is hygienic & you can look super stylish too

3. Wear wedges I/o of heels!! Believe me with a baby in your arms you definitely need a more stable solid footwear to keep your stable & stylish

Be inspired, Be Stylish!! 

Love, Sujata πŸ’•
