Lewis from St. Louis...

Hello everyone,
So I'm back now, back from a wonderful week-long vacation!
Sorry for disappearing like that but now I'm so glad to be back to blogging!
Hope you all had a great week. Can't wait to hear all that I missed and share my travel experiences too.


                                                Can you spot the famous arch in the background?


It was a vacation filled with beach, water, water parks and road trips.
On the 4th of July we were at St Louis, Missouri, a beautiful city with architecturally rich buildings , nestled on the banks of the Mississippi river.
The very mention of St. Louis reminds me of Lewis from St. Louis from the movie Sex and the City. I do not know how many times I've watched every episode of Sex and the City over the years. I've always been a die hard fan of the show- the fashion, the city and the events in the life of the four friends never failed to impress me and the first movie was like an icing on the cake. Right now, I wish I had an assistant  like Lewis from St. Louis (Jennifer Hudson), who would help me finish all my pending household chores and catch up on the blogging part and also hook me up with a place which rents expensive bags like her patchwork Louis Vuitton!

Though, I originally planned to wear something in red, white and blue, on the 4th of July, I ended up wearing this comfy, cotton, chevron-striped dress as the temperature was a freaking 102 degrees and the heat and humidity was simply intolerable. In case you are thinking 'What? no red, blue and white on the 4th of July?', my sweet friend was smart enough to collect these red, white and blue bead strands from the parade downtown, and suggested I wear them to bring in the color scheme of the day!!

Tell me, did you wear red, white and blue on America's Independence Day?
How did you celebrate the 4th of July?




                                                                          What I Am Wearing:
                                                                   dress- Maurices    bag- Steve Madden    flats- Kenneth Cole    
                                                                   watch and sunnies- Guess    bracelets- Buckle, Forever21

                                               Thanking you                                                                          Yours faithfully
                                                                                                                                      Juneli 
P.S. My absence for a week has put me behind with all the blogging work and I'm trying to catch up with all your comments and posts. It will take some time but I promise I will visit you all soon. Thanks for all your lovely words in my previous posts!

  10. Welcome back, Juneli! Your chevron dress is adorable and probably kept you cool in that crazy heat! I had to work on the 4th :( but I was able to see the fireworks at night. I love watching SATC too, I still watch the reruns even though I think I've seen every single episode :)

  11. Welcome back Juneli! Years ago I used to fly to St. Louis almost every week for a consulting project. It is super hot and awfully humid there during this time of year so I know how you must have been feeling while there! The dress is beautiful and I watch a lot of SATC, I have the pink velveteen collector's edition of all the episodes :)

    My favorite tv show ever for fashion is Cashmere Mafia. Too bad it lasted for 1 season due to the writer's strike. There isn't an outfit I didn't like on that show!
