Unicorn at the Beach

It’s that time of the year again. 

Sweaters ready to be worn. Chilly winter nights loom. Blankets piled. Hot chocolate galore. Of course, goes without saying that I become nostalgic about the year that has passed. The month itself seems like a package of recollection of memories. I make more memories to shut the box of 2013. But before I ramble about retrospections, let’s jump to the pictures. 

This one has long been due. Remember I told you I was on vacation? Well, I went to Pondicherry with mes amis. Oh, what can I say? Waffles for breakfast, walks to the beach, late nights, relaxed mornings, gossip, pizza, auto journeys and what not. A wonderful break from reality is just what we all needed. Of course I managed to bug Pingu aka Bobblez aka Sneha (she willingly offered to take pictures for me, isn’t she the best?) to take pictures for the blog. 

This outfit has been on my mind for quite sometime. Except, it’ll just get unwanted attention if I wore it on the streets of Bangalore. What better time than on a vacation to experiment with fashion turbans? Electric blue fashion turban, black and white maxi and my shades by the beach. Of course I’m going to attempt to skip the part where people on the road were fascinated by the unicorn like ‘entity’ on my head (One of them even took a picture of it), after which I have been fondly titled unicorn. See for yourself.

Oh let me just go back? 

If you didn’t know, I love Pondicherry. It was my second time being there and I’m sure I’ll go again. Because it’s a beautiful place. 

But there was nothing like seeing the traffic in Bangalore as our bus reached. I felt more home. I felt this inexplainable joy because I heard people speak in Kannada and saw the streets look like a million fireflies in march past. Well, we all love our city, don’t we?
