Those hot mornings are now softly turning into misty dewy mornings. Moist morning transport me back to home, Assam India. Indian festival season just started there. Festivity unfolds food, flavor and fashion. I reminisce about those beautiful days of school holidays, relishing festive food, buying and feeling the touch of crisp new clothes.
Well, the last couple of years my friend initiated celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi. She meticulously plans and creates festivity with so much care and creativity. It is a 11 days affair. Even though I want to visit every day, my kids and work just occupy me and I could only manage to visit a few days. During the visits, I enjoy dressing up for the festivity.
This year I see how linen became vogue in summer. I chose this linen white saree with a blue border and a pink achal (the top end) which played a pinch of pop of color which you need for a festival look. I team it up with Assamese thuria and blue potli bag and a thick traditional Assamese Bengals called gam kharu. The saree almost felt like second skin to me, feathery and soft. Some people might find it little shuttle for Indian festive affair. Everything (accessories) has a gold tint to it. Initially I thought of silver tint then later decided on the gold, as it will add up some unexpected flair to it. Hope you like this look. Have a great weekend guys and enjoy the festive season.
