Hope everyone is safe and healthy out there! It’s really hard to believe how time’s elapsing. We are almost at the end of the July 2020, though I feel grateful that amidst the tough times, we are here surviving and making progress with our lives. Let’s continue to hope that we’ll have the vaccine out soon and things can get back to normal!
According to the Telugu calendar, it’s the Sravana Masam and it’s my first one after we got married. This month, we pray goddess Lakshmi and Gauri, for the health & well-being of the husband & for the prosperity of the family. Amidst all the chaos, the only positive thing has been that, I get enough time for preparations and pooja (offering prayers) with the WFH situation. And I’m taking some extra timeout to dress up, so a few of my Saris can see the light of the day 🙂
Starting with my look from last Friday, I wore this Handloom Tie & Dye Linen Sari which I got from Ajio (based in India) during our Wedding last year. I love the idea of building a collection of Saris, each with a story associated, so I can treasure them & share stories about them. I was a little particular to pick one of a kind, so I can have a diverse collection. I didn’t have a Linen Sari before and neither in Tie-Dye patterns. While my sister and I were exploring, we came across some beautiful Linen Saris at Ajio. They have many patterns and different color combinations, and on top of that, they were under a special discount. I fell in love with this purple & white color combination, so went ahead with my purchase.
The Sari came with a blouse, which was also a linen fabric. Blouses with linen fabric might not be a great idea considering the nature of the linen and they might not last longer. So as per my sister’s advice, she helped me pick a fabric (raw silk fabric) and she designed the blouse, so it compliments the Sari, and matches my style. If you know me, I prefer wearing something simple and like to use my accessories to transition the look. The Sari has a Silver Zari border, so I paired my look with some Silver accessories. I have a collection of silver earrings, but not any necklaces. So I tried a little hack where I joined my anklets to create a necklace, and hola here’s my simple necklace that compliments & pulled my entire look together.
I also love mixing and matching my metal jewelry, so I added some gold-toned bangles and my gold, rose gold-toned rings. I kept my makeup to minimal like usual and added a berry-toned to lipstick to finish off my look. This is one of my favorite Saris and yet another favorite looks. Hope you enjoy reading my ramblings and the post in general, see you soon with a new one!
