When I woke up yesterday morning & looked out of the window, for a moment I thought I'd been transported (by some magic/ in my dream) to some hill station! Fog hung thick & low over the whole city like some mysterious intruder waiting to pounce on the early morning risers unawares...
And poor me had to brave the thick haze & trudge to office early in the morning.............coz we were going for a picnic!!! The foggy & cold morning made the 2 hours trip to the farmhouse near the river Ganga all the more exciting & fun! Everyone was supposed to meet at the office building & then set off together for the journey to the picnic spot. Walking through the clouds, that had descended on earth yesterday, gave me an ethereal & beautiful feeling ( not to mention a cold numbness in the parts of my body that were exposed to the caressing touches of the mist) & as I neared my office, here's what greeted my eyes:
This is a residential building right next to my office which is 35 stories high & which generally looms large over the other smaller buildings around.........but yesterday, it was shrouded almost fully by the thick veil of fog........wonder what the residents of the higher floors are feeling like up there, lost in the clouds!!
So.......amidst the low temperature, the chilly winds & the thick fog, we set off for the day-long outing. In fact, we had a lovely day..........laughing, gossiping, eating, pulling each others' legs, enjoying in the out-of-town farmhouse, watching boats go by on the river adjacent to the house & of course, clicking lots & lots of pictures!!! :)
Here's few of the shots clicked by the hobbyist photographer in me (my friends & colleagues have tired of my affinity towards doors, windows, plants & other knick-knacks whenever I have a camera in hand!!):
Green & Yellow
Life crack'd through...
Aaaaaaaannnnnnndddddd........now we come to the fashionista me!! Early morning chill & the ever-spreading mist all around compelled me to pile on the layers........the bright colors on me represented my jovial mood & the exciting day that lay ahead......with the right amount of black to balance the vibrant blue & green!
I absolutely love this combo of turquoise & lime!!! It's one of my favorite color combinations of all times........so what better could I choose for a fun day out with friends???
In fact, this striped sweater in bright colors is borrowed from my sister's wardrobe (almost without her knowledge! I mean, when she'll see it's missing........she can guess that I have worn it.....right?)
P.S.: That's the river behind me.......with steps leading down to it from the gates.
I simply adore the slightly flared sleeves & the zig zag stripes on the body of the sweater!
Also, you all can see what a blast I had............climbing trees & having fun, posing all over the place!!! :)
The black knit jacket with the asymmetric hemline is a recent winter purchase. It's stylish, it's warm & it's black! So full marks to this piece from my winter wardrobe!!!
I fell in love with this tree! It stood tall & strong, flaunting its winter avatar - bare, brazen & beautiful!
Sitting on the banks of the river....lost in thought (though I have absolutely no idea what I was thinking about).......
One could not even see the other side of the river through the mist.......the opposite bank is just a blur........while the river reflects the grey & foggy sky......
This turquoise woolen scarf is one of my fav pieces...........doesn't it match perfectly with the sweater???
It was an absolute saviour, guarding my Bronchitis-afflicted throat & chest from the chill in the air, while at the same time upping the style quotient of the whole outfit! :))
Couldn't think of anything other than a pair of Converse to wear with a bright blue pair of socks (unfortunately, not visible in any of the snaps!) to keep my feet warm & dry. Love the way the pop of yellow laces gives the shoes a funky twist! In fact, I owe my sister big time as this part of my outfit is also courtesy her wardrobe!!! :))

All in all, I had a fun day...........came back home terribly tired & sleepy..........but happy nevertheless!

Have a rocking weekend people!
