Return Of The Jeans

Yeah, jeans were banned from my kingdom of closet for this summer. 
'Enter colored denims, Exit regular denims'

It’s been super-hot these days and I dare not wear those jeans for the fear of dying all sweaty and from the heat. I mean it’s not just the colored denims to take the credit (or blame?!) - that can be equally shared by shorts (both colored n printed), skirts (short n maxi), summer dresses, maxi dresses, leggings, crop pants, capris. phew! Do I own all these? Really!? Oh well, I do. Guilty as charged!
But the denims did make a come back last week. How come, you ask? Well, ‘cause when you are out for a driving class, you hardly care what outfit you put together. 

Yes my friends, I am learning to drive!!!! 

Finally! hallelujah! about time! way to go!...is what my friends and family would be saying while reading this post. Five years in the states and not once behind the wheel. Now you know, main kiske dam par itna ghumti hun ('who takes me around everywhere')
Well no shame here, I never wanted required to drive – worked in downtown Boston and took T (metro train) every day, husband drove around for shopping, groceries and everything in between. But moving to Virginia my very beliefs about not-driving were shaken to the core. I had had had to learn driving. (repeating a word 3 times is enough emphasis, right?). But true to my character I procrastinated another couple of months before I actually got behind the wheel. Well, now I have been learning to drive since a month and feel pretty confident about it. So much of driving around I have realized one thing, Practice makes Parking perfect! Hoping to finish off the license and road test in a week. 
In between all this, I have learning permits in two states, drivers permit in India and heading to get drivers permit in US.

Back to the outfit, so yeah denims back with a plain baby pink sheer aka see-through top and I was good to go for my daily dose of driving. 
Bee-tee-W, for first time ever, I matched by accessories with shoes, looks pretty cute, eh? 

Pink is my all time fav color so much so that I have to consciously make effort to stop trying/buying tops in pink. The best part of the sheer top is its comfort and flowy; perfect for summers! (and especially good when I am out on a hogging trip :P).

But did you know sheer tops work for Fall and Winters too?? well for layering. of course. I did a couple of impromptu looks on 'How you can Layer a Sheer Top.' Layer the sheer top with a printed or plain tee - Sheer top Remixed n Recycled! 

Paisa vasoool (worth the money), isn't it?
