With the 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 to 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 of 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 the 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 it’s a true form of elegance. Personally, I have been building a collection of Sari’s 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 looks classy and brings 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 similar color combinations – light peach and berry stones. I always love to keep my looks simple, whether it’s ethnic or western, so I let my 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 🙂
