A Touch of Elegance

With festive season around the corner, I could not miss out on drafting a post with my favorite ever outfit – A Sari! During my last trip in India, I did manage to bring back a lot of Saris, but I never really got a chance to wear them over the last couple months. I wore this early this month, but it was a really busy month at work and I was also pre-occupied with a lot of things back home, that I couldn’t come back to the blog! But I’m really grateful that everything is going smoothly both at work and back home, and I also feel grateful that I have my little online space where I can talk my heart out and showcase my little creative hobbies and just rejuvenate!

Coming back to the details, I wanted to share my look before the festive season in India starts, but I was late. Nevertheless, I don’t want to delay it anymore. I do have some festive looks in plan, so stay tuned for that 🙂 No matter how many outfits I may have, a Sari always has a special place and I personally think its a true form of elegance. Personally, I have been building a collection of Saris for myself and this is probably one of them with the bright color hues.

It is a tissue Sari with a Zari border, golden Zari checks and golden butta details. And it is also very light in weight, which makes it easier to carry it for longer times. I have been seeing these checkered Zari saris trending lately, and I absolutely believe that these are a great option for all the youngsters out there, who love light weighted Saris which also look classy and bring in the dose of elegance.

It is an orangish peach colored one with a purple/berry contrast Pallu and Blouse. I usually like my blouse designs simple and easy to carry, so I can also wear them on Casual occasions, yet not look overly dressed. The blouse piece came with the Sari, and because the border was wide enough, I went with the puff sleeves and a deep U neck at the back. Blouses with puff sleeves and arm length are back in trend again, and I also feel so much comfortable in them.

For the accessories, I luckily had this pendant set which I got a very while ago, with the similar color combinations – light peach and berry stones. I always love to keep my looks simple, wether it’s ethnic or western, so I let me hair loose and added a pearl hair clip to hold my hair on one side. And I finished off my with usual makeup, a bright lip and a bindi 🙂 It was raining on and off when we started shooting these pictures. We took some inspiration from Pinterest for poses and photography! Hope you like them all 🙂
