Happy Saturday my dear readers! The anticipation of spring and warmer weather has me giddy with joy. I am expressing my elation by pulling out the more casual Indian outfits that can be worn on a weekend to a casual ‘get together’ or just because they look so pretty and feminine.
I saw this beautifully bright red silk material in a shop in Mumbai and thought it would make a lovely kurta. I had it stitched with silver piping in the traditionally men’s style of kurta making with the patch under the arm. It is striking, comfortable and easy to wear; it turned out exactly as I had hoped. I have paired it with lovely over the ear cuff earrings I found in Delhi. The vendor went to great lengths to explain to me that the ‘fashionable’ thing to do was to wear only one. I think he was a bit disappointed with my fashion acumen when I insisted on buying two. Finally, my wool poncho does a great job of warding off the nip in the air while adding a relaxed and destructured layered effect to the overall outfit.
Have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog!
