I want to extend a huge thank you to Lydia for drawing one of my photos for me. Please go follow her to see more of her art. 🙂
I almost didn’t take pictures this week but Shaina volunteered to take some on her iPhone and I’m in love! I’m wearing a half sari and swapped out the original sari blouse for a gold one. My hair is definitely frizzy, but hey- that’s life.
I hope you’re having a restful and productive Sunday!
My mother came back from India after being away from 2 months and she brought back with her some beautiful pieces of clothing. This salwar top was stitched for me because my sister has one that she wears in white. While my mom was in India she got me one in creme and black.
This week’s Sari Sunday is neither a Sari or something I wore on Sunday. Opps. Haha I wore this dress for a bridal shower yesterday and paired it with henna stickers on my hand. I got the stickers from a trip a few years ago to India. It started to come off but still looked pretty good all day. I love this dress! I wish I had more with a similar design. It was purchased at Marshalls.
I don’t know if anyone else’s parents do this but my mom has a suitcase where she saves all my extra special salwars. It was inside my mom’s secret suitcase that I found this stunning salwar. It was a gift from a close family friend who goes to my church. My favorite aspect of this salwar is the neckline. To be honest, I dressed up because it felt wrong not to do so in such a beautiful salwar.
The bracelet I’m wearing here is from Baublebar, my friend Anitha and I have the same one. It’s our friendship bracelet! Because we’re forever on vacation. 😉
I had a moment today that sorta put things into perspective for me. I felt silly posting fashion pictures thinking of the grand scale of things.
My dad got into a biking accident and he’s okay but he so easily got hurt in one second more than he ever was in his entire life. I saw how fragile the man who raised me was and reminded me to never forget that every day is a gift. I could have not existed or my life could have been cut short at any time. But, I’m alive.
So in this picture I am very fragile as we are all very fragile. But I realize that because I believe in an eternity, being fragile isn’t so scary. I have no reason to be afraid. (Although I will be cautious!)
As much as I love dressing up and having my picture taken, I love taking pictures of others even more. This week the beautiful Liz is featured. She is wearing a sari from north India that we reworked with some of my mom’s sari wrapping magic. I think I might do a post explaining how to wrap a Sari like this. Comment down below if you’d like that!
As always, have a great Sunday! 🙂
I’m bringing back the Sari in #SariSunday! I wore this sari with a blouse that has a longer sleeve and it honestly made me feel like I was dressing up for someone’s wedding. The blouse doesn’t even go with this Sari! The colors somehow worked and I was in luck. I decided to just pin my hair back because the Sari felt so extravagant.
That’s all for now, I hope you’re enjoying your day. 🙂
