Just a short spring-inspired post with lots of color. This weekend is supposed to be dreary, but here’s to hoping that the sun makes a few surprise appearances.

P.S. These photos were taken in San Jose. Who knew San Jose had this beautiful countryside? I sure didn’t.

Friday’s Favorites

8 Mar

My favorite things this week definitely have an Indian flair. And like most things Indian, it’s full of color (and a little spice). Hope you enjoy and have a happy Friday!

A staple in any Indian’s kitchen, the spice box makes my life so much easier by having all my necessities within easy reach. The colors of the spices are so vivid, it’s like a micocosm of India stored in a little container (I also love the more traditional steel ones available here).

Colorful and elaborate patterns to welcome Spring (via a care package from my mother-in-law…don’t you just love recieving gifts?).

Crunch Time

6 Mar

The hardest part of the morning routine is trying to figure out what to wear everyday. It’s particularly challenging if you’re in a profession that limits what you can wear. As a dentist, it’s critical to wear clothes that are comfortable, yet professional. A button down and cropped slacks allow me to go through the rigors of a typical day in the office while still maintaining a professional appearance. It’s my go-to outfit when I’m in a rush.

The bag is a perfect place to stash flats that I can switch out with heels when I make plans to meet B for dinner.
