Summer whites

Sunday afternoons on a summer day.

Hot. Dry wind blowing. A lazy dog stretches itself in the shade of a nearby tree. AC on full blast. Cool lemonade and ice cream stocked up in the fridge. Neatly cut pieces of mango and watermelon, cold and fresh out of the freezer. Download and watch movies. Go for a stroll after 6pm to your favorite coffee shop. Have some ice tea and a green apple mojito. Drive down to a friend's place with the windows down. A blast of hot and cold air hitting you in the face. A dip in the pool, not to swim but only to 'float around'. Having coconut milk on a road-side stand. Sleeping and being lazy all afternoon. The only 'outings' you have are to the mall or the movies 'coz those are the only two places with air-conditioning.

I know that the concept of summer holidays is a thing of the past now, but that doesn't mean summer has lost its charm. In-spite of hating the scorching, uncomfortable heat, in-spite of cribbing about not being able to get out of the house, in-spite of the heat sapping up all your energy, in-spite of wishing that winter would last 'just a few more days', in-spite of having no vacation, summer will always be special in some ways!

Another thing about summer, the BEST THING actually, is dressing up in white. It is so pleasing on the eyes and your body.







And me! ;)

  2. T G A F A,

    So true. In summers white work best or even some light shades. And cool NIMBU PAANI or Ice cream is so welcome.

    Take care

  8. I am certainly into seeing white jeans, especially some flared or bootcut white jeans. Your white dress is lovely, Chandana. The slingback pumps offer a fairly chic touch to the otherwise comfortable and easy white dress.

    A white malmal ka shirt and short shorts, hair tied up into a bun and sleek aviators :), nothing like that!
