Simple is Chic

1:02 AM

I am not a coward [really am not!] and I neither am I afraid of confrontations. But do I look forward to them? Not really! However, what bothers me the most is when I realize that I might have hurt or offended someone unintentionally. The moment that realization dawns upon me, my day becomes long and the night even longer [till I set the record straight, that is]! Until I do not know for sure that I have communicated my true intention to the person-concerned, I cannot sit still. At times, I even wish the earth would split open and I would guzzle right into the oblivion, just like Sita Mata [But I am not a big fan of Mrs. Sita ... but that story for another time. Non Indian readers - She is a mythological character from one of the Hindu Epics - Ramayana]! But that never happens and I have to wait it out till the misunderstanding gets cleared. It's such a torture. And to make it worse I start over-analyzing the situation and wonder if my need to set-the-record straight will be seen as my guilt talking? No matter how hard I try to keep my 'simple' life - simple, it always finds a way to get entangled again. But my quest to keep it simple is always ON! 

This is how I dressed to run errands with my husband :)
High-Bun incidentally same as what Splurgerina featured in her yesterday's post!

(As some readers had asked me)

Today, I met Tamanna for a short while. It was my first time meeting a friend from this blogosphere. She is as amazing as her posts are. She is reflective, fun and very easy to talk to. 

We talked and shared our views about blogging, men, women, sagittarius sun sign, fashion, Sonam Kapoor [Meh!], Aishwarya Rai [*vicious.eye.roll*], among many other things. It was really great to finally meet [at least] one of the faces behind my Mac screen [*big.grin*].  

With the fun and fabulous Tamanna from Frenchleave

  1. The simple t-shirt with the necklace looks great! And those flashy sunglasses are so cool!

    I totally know what you mean about unintentionally hurting people. Sometimes I say something and then when I reflect back on it later, I realize that it could have been totally perceived the wrong way and then I feel really guilty.

  9. How cool that you met Tamanna! I love her blog, but I had no idea you lived in the same vicinity. I love meeting bloggers :)

  10. Simple is more than chic!

  11. You know what I am going to say right..

    "I LOVE THE SHOES! It's so Happy"

    You kinda nailed it on the roller-coaster ride guilt and overactive brain takes you when a misunderstanding occurs. Let's hope that if we want to keep it simple, the other person/people do the same and make it easier to accomplish that na?

  15. Your dress code 'Keeping it simple' definitely works, Tanvi. You're looking great!
    I do know the worries about inintentionally having offended someone - it's a nagging feeling and often becomes much bigger in our heads than it was actually received. xoxo

  22. This is the first time ur hair is all tied up, right? Ur shoes are cute and they remind me of Kohlapuri chappals:-) and love the color of ur bag..

    just curious how do u realize u may have hurt someone - does ur hubby point out? does that person say something which makes u think? what I am trying to get is what makes u introspect in a particular situation or do u introspect every stuff:-)

  25. Another one of those things where you remind me of me!
    It sucks when someone is miffed with me for this has happened at such rare occasions that I can actually count them on my fingers accounting for my lifetime!

    But try as you may...this becomes a basic intrinsic nature Tani...
    We won’t change n thankfully not many get miffed in our paths;-)

    U n Tamanna both look gorgeous...
    And yiyee yiyee I know both of u*grins like a monkey-phrase stolen from u*
    Stay cool both of u awesome women:-)
