Summer #OOTD, Indian Ethnic

             A year had passed in the blink of an eye. Yes, both of my kid's school year is over. A few goof ups along the way, yet at the end a few achievements as well. There are so many graduation parties to look forward to. We were invited to a friend son's graduation party. I was just speculating what to wear. As it is an Indian friend's party, I decided that I am going to dress up in Indian wear. Living in New England , a few days of summer is bliss after the winter hibernation. I can't wait to wear my Indian outfits which I got from India during my last visit. As I was deciding on my dress, I assumed crowd would be more youth. They will wear western so to blend with it I need to wear something subtle.        While going through my wardrobe, I finalized on my off-white chanderi silk flared kurta with silver banarasi border, and a black dupatta with silver weaves. As the dress is simple and fuzz-free, it gives a plenty of options for accessories.

Saravanaa Bhavan Edison, New Jersey Review

I have a great fascination for filling breakfasts as it serves you longer, I mean, if you have a great breakfast your day will start with more energy more zest. I love Indian breakfasts as it is very filling and satisfying at the same time. When it comes to southern Indian food, I always love to have breakfast or brunch. Just recently, I had a scrumptious breakfast at Saravanaa Bhavan in Edison, New Jersey. My southern Indian friends always make fun of me, since I haven’t had a chance to visit Saravanaa Bhavan yet if you haven't been to Saravanaa Bhavan than you really have not tasted great south Indian food. As I entered, my expectations were more traditional interior and space, but it was quite the opposite of my expectation. Saravanaa Bhavan owned me over at the very first sight by its beautiful modern interior with bright crimson red and opulent orange looks and attentive and humble service.

Then one of my good friend's message came as a blessing; they wanted to go for a vacation rental, and she was just wondering if we could join them. It was an obvious yes.

She spoke with the owner to get photos from the location or the property where we were going. It made everything so much easier. The significant part of living in New England or more precisely Connecticut is we have access to the all beautiful pla
