Last year around this time, I was bombarded with so many outfit posts especially, Indian inspired as this time kick starts the Indian festive season. As now we are coexisting with Covid-19, social appearance is really limited and of course, dressing up as well.
But, the other day I was invited to my neighbor's place for Lord Krishna's birthday, which we called Krishna Janmashtami. As Covid-19 is in my mind, with full precaution, I decided to attend, as I have wonderful memories of Krishna Janmashtami celebration of those idyllic days of childhood and growing up. Also, took the opportunity for dressing up. Interestingly, I have kurta and skirt in Banarsi Silk motif of Vrindavan, the birthplace of Lord Krishna and blue Banarasi Dupatta and antique silver necklace and earring with a silver bangle. The look is simple enough for casual get together and dressy enough for any low key celebration. I finished with silver sandals and a blue bindi. Do you know in Indian culture blue color is widely associated with Lord Krishna? I could have gone for more neutral dupatta for a more muted look but, the pop of color blue allied festive mood more over the blue color provided significance with Lord Krishna. Hope you like the look. Share your thoughts and ideas on what you wear for low key or casual celebrations.
