For those of you who are not aware, I am in India for a month long holiday. Two weeks left before I get back and get into my new “work life” hopefully. After facing a long and almost perpetual winter, I somewhat welcomed and enjoyed the Indian summer. Though known for its ruthlessness it is only when you stay away from home do you truly cherish what it always offered you. While Amma’s biriyani and chicken curry is duly taking a good space in my tummy, I really am enjoying everything along the way.
My love for a vibrant and colorful outfit is no secret. I feel nothing brightens yours or probably anyone else’s day like a beautiful hot pink kurta or a mustard yellow palazzo especially in the summer and even more when you are back home. I have literally #droppedmyjeans and kept my sartorial affairs strictly to skirts, palazzos, dresses and shorts. Along with these choices comes the many authentic “Indian” advantage like a pair of statement ‘Jhumkas’ or a turquoise blue stoned choker. After wrapping myself up in monochromatic jackets and muted colors back in states a splash of color is what I needed to wear and to flaunt and this is exactly what this post is all about.
Something that I had planned for a while to do in terms of a blog post and Indian summer is a skirt series. A gorgeous printed pink long skirt that I purchased from ajio.com paired with a bottle green off shoulder top gave me all the color pop I needed.
Another pleasure of being back for holidays that I had to make the most of is my undying love from chunky street jewelry. I hoard them and I carry then with no matter where I go.
The next is another quintessential summer staple. A ‘Rajasthani print’ skirt. One that a lot of us store in the closet because its so darn gorgeous and wait for the perfect occasion to flaunt it. My skirt from Biba is one such exquisite piece. I couldn’t help but twirl around irregardless of the heat waves.
The top is an old buy from a local thrift store and the chain is one of my favorites again found in the streets of Rishikesh. That is the captivating part about India isn’t it there is something for everyone anywhere.
With only two weeks left I am maxing out and raiding not only mine but also Amma’s wardrobe for all such gems that I can get my hands on.
