I find myself waking up and playing in the lawn in a beautiful fall morning or festive time in India making a flower garland with Sewali phool (night jasmine). Ah, nostalgia. During this time the weather is neither cold nor hot with fall flower endorsing the beginning of the festive season. Yes, I miss this not being there, yet I feel wonderful and fortunate to celebrate the festivity of the two culture and the two countries here.
If you follow me or read my blog, then you might have seen the Indian festive look 1. Here I am sharing Indian festival look 2. I love collecting sarees, while traveling to India I always pick up sarees. This saree is a couple of years back mint green silver and gold border with big parsley motifs and a hint of pink lining edge on the border. I kept it simple with a pink potli and ruby studded Jhumka earing and pink jutti (flat Indian pump) which I absolutely love and love even more because of the emerald green sole. A huge bindi, hair and makeup are neutral and natural except bright pink lips to perk up with pink potli, shoes and the edge of the saree. The look is meant to be simple, natural and Indian. I won't say it is completely traditional Indian, as it has a little modern touch and twists of course. Let me know your thoughts.
