Birthday of the Hubs, and first Outfit Post of the Year!

It was Mr. Tiger’s birthday on Sunday, and we had a quiet little celebration at home. My in-laws came over and we had a biryani feast for lunch. Remember my recipe here? Just substituted chicken with lamb. And I’m proud to say that I controlled my portions :D.

This is what I gifted hubby dear:



Arber Eau De Toilette from The Body Shop. He’s been thinking of buying a perfume for a while, and I thought it would make the perfect gift :-). So this year was comparatively easy. I usually rack my brains every time it’s my Dad’s/Bro’s/Hubby’s birthday. Men are just sooo difficult to gift!!!

It’s got a nice masculine fragrance, not too strong, but just right. Now I feel I should have also got him the Hair and Shower Gel in the same range!!

I dug into my wardrobe and found this old patchwork skirt. It’s a hand me down from my sister, who hates, yes-hates skirts. My Mom got it for her from Bangkok and it languished in her wardrobe, and then I rescued it and then it languished in mine, a poor abandoned wardrobe orphan. Then I found another orphan, and voila! Now, they’re a family!!


FrillyTop: Pantaloons
Patchwork Skirt: Bangkok
Wooden Bangles: Exhibition and Fabindia
Beaded Necklace: aLL (a Little Larger)

The pic above came out a bit weird because I was in the middle of doing a curtsy and my hubs clicked away.


I teamed it with another long unworn beaded necklace and stack of wooden bangles. I love seeing other bloggers make stacks of bangles, but I'm kind of new to it. I also rearranged all my necklaces on hooks during the weekend, so now they are visible whenever I open my wardrobe!

I loved wearing this skirt. In fact I love all skirts and wonder why I don’t wear them often. Hmm...I can feel a fashion resolution coming up :). I guess pants/jeans/churidars are more practical when I’m out and about.

Do you have a particular love or hatred for skirts? Let me know!!

    3. In that case, for now, you can always do with some aromatic vegetable pulao and a cooling raitha, one of my many comfort foods :)

  2. I used to hate Skirts..."used to" cause I am lil more open to experimenting now. Skirts are extremely difficult to manage especially during travels....and Im very conscious while wearing skirts

    1. I completely agree with the 'difficult' part...that's what's stopping me from wearing more of them, especially with the potholes and things we have in India. Wear them mostly for house parties and similar events now :(

  3. I love love skirts..they were my daily wear when I was on the skinnier side (which I am not now anymore :( ).They are airy and more breathable than jeans and I find them perfect for the humid Indian climate.
    Ah...do wish you hubby a very happy birthday(belated of course) :)

    1. That's the same problem I have. Now, I don't make it that often just to avoid over eating ;-)
