Like A Boy

Some of us are born tomboys. My sister was the big one. I mean if being tomboyish was measured with a number, say 3, 6 and 10, then she is an absolute ten. In this post, we have tried to create a boy inspired outfit that would look totally cool. I mean, look at this one, if you  increase the length of those shorts a bit, just a bit, an average boy could totally rock this outfit. 

You guys have a great weekend.

Very Indian

Whenever someone asks me how I am, I have this usual answer, I am okay, everything is the same. And its weird. Because everything is not the same actually. Its just a weird habit of mine to say everything is the same. Or maybe, I do not give importance to anything. So I end up not talking about things.

Don't know what am I talking. You guys have a great weekend. Sharing with you a post on Indian clothing this weekend. This is my sister again, posing happily for the blog and her Facebook profile pictures.

Tote Bags and Us

I like tote bags. They make me feel I have so much to do. And they don't let me struggle with my stuff. I like women in maxi dresses and tote bags, going about their business, walking from one shop to another for hours.

Why are tote bags a must have?

They may look like a huge square shaped things made of cloth, but there is more to them. You can carry your laptop (in my case, the beloved camera), an e-book reader or a pair of flats in case you might have to walk later (Yeah walking in heels is not awesome, but that is a different story). 

And you can customize a tote bag without breaking your bank. You can have the photo of your loved one on it or you can write something as well. There are many websites offering those kind of things. 

And I think it is so cool when men carry tote bags. I am kind of sick of seeing men with backpacks all the time. The Guardian's Kyle Chayka once explained why every real man carries a tote and why it is unfair to call it a murse.

"Tote bags were originally as manly as could be. LL Bean designed the modern tote’s first ancestor in 1944 with the Bean’s Ice Carrier, a hefty bag made of reinforced cotton for carrying giant blocks of ice from car to ice chest”. How much more rugged can you get," he says.

I agree.

Sea Gets Me Thinking

So I took a break of exactly three months. Hope you all are doing well. I will take the liberty of talking as if nothing happened. As if there was no gap. So.... I was talking about the sea. At nights, when the waves hit the shore, they made a sound that got me excited at first. And with every wave, the sound grew on me. Even as I walked, I tried to block all the thoughts, all the footsteps, all the little sounds, to listen to the waves, to check if they have gotten a bit ordinary now.

They did not.

My friend says God is in the waves. As I spotted a tiny boat at the brink one morning, I wondered, there is nothing in there. No society, no biases, no rules, nothing. All that is there is a fisherman and his will to survive. Everything else is non-existent. And I thought some more.

The point I am trying to make is that the sea gets you thinking. If you are looking for some answers, you may like to give it a try. I know that everything is within. But nature plays its part. It always has. 

Philosophy apart, I look happy. Right? Love the Forever 21 blouse and shorts.
