outfit of the day green mekhela chadar

In my current homeland here in New England, summer is almost over. But in my other homeland in India, this is the mark of the festive season. The festive season unfolds with good food and chances of dressing up. However, the covid19 has changed everything as well as the way we celebrate festivities.

The other day one of my friend invited us to an Indian festivity. I decided to step out of the mundane and dress something special. Then this pair of green mekhela chadar came to my mind. A quintessential and classic for any Indian wardrobe. Even though this mekhela chadar is traditional, the thick border gives it a very contemporary look. It has a gold peacock motif design. I decided to team it up with a pair of muted statement gold earrings and a large statement bangle with a gold watch. I did a hair bun and wrapped my hair with flowers. For makeup, my lips are in bold red color, and my eyes are filled with dark kohl. 

How do you like this look, do let me know. Have a wonderful week ahead and enjoy the festive season.
