Winter Wonder

So I am back from my funfilled Gurgaon trip. And yes I have truly become the madraasi from Chennai who hasn't been introduced to the concept of winter.

So I was gleefully staring at each and every sweater visible to me, mentally oohing and aahing at the patterns, secretly wishing to own them and publicly declaring that I am glad I don't have the headache of acquiring, maintaining and wearing winter wear!

I was goggling and giggling at the trendy coats that all the dogs were proudly wearing and getting amazed at the captions like "don't mess with me" printed on their brightly coloured coats.

I was ogling at men in their coats and ties and wishing I could see the hubby wear the same.

My solo plain black sweater and black shawl paled in comparison to the variety each person was wearing everyday. Oh and the shawls- plain, printed, embroidered, knitted, crocheted.... I miss the fun of coordinating them with my clothes each day. While the woolens do mess with your fashion statement, they have a charm of their own when worn otherwise.

Hot baths, loads of moisturiser, room heaters, blankets, sun soaking, foggy mornings...I miss them all so much!

Beautifully written!

Woke up to a very foggy morning and a crispness which curled my toes...felt very vital!
