An Indian Independence Day!


Every Independence Day,I try to take in the opportunity and incorporate the tricolour somewhere in my outfit.This year too I had my orange and green maxi all planned in my head but when I actually took it out to wear,I realised at I had forgotten the slip that went with it in the store!
I had to meet my friends for lunch and I still really wanted to showcase my Indianness somehow in my outfit so I decided to switch to this fabulous cotton anarkali!

The whole outfit co-incidentally is all handloom and handicraft curated from different parts of India.Whenever I visit a new place,I make sure to visit the local shops there,Malls are the same in every city but it is in these small shops that you find the real gems.They are things that are unique to that region and as soon as you see it,it takes you back to the fond memories of the trip.

Flowy cotton Anarkalis are perfect for the humid monsoon season.They don't stick to your skin and are super comfortable and easy to wear.You can easily dress them uo with makeup and accessories to go from a casual to a dressy look.I've seen most people wearing pallazos with straight long kurtas but I love pairing them with Anarkalis.It changes the look of the whole outfit to instant chique and it looks like you've spent some time in styling your outfit even though it's so easy to wear.

I hope you had a great time this Independence Day! What did you do that day?
