Happy Diwali: Outfit of the Day

Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Diwali! Hope you all had as much fun (and sweets) as I did.

The past week was beyond hectic- I mean what else could one expect with all the shopping, cleaning, organizing and decorating! But I loved every moment of the hectic-ness, the endless trips to the market and getting the house ready to welcome Diwali.


I did a few DIY projects to make our home bright and sparkly for Diwali. And I reorganized a lot of things to give our home a fresh look. I’m thinking of doing a post on ‘Diwali Home Décor’. Let me know if you lovelies are interested in reading/seeing it.

Now coming on to my Diwali outfit, I had initially planned on wearing a gorgeous chiffon saree for the Pooja. However, since I was busy since the morning (and let’s admit it, I can hardly tie a saree :P), I decided to opt for a simple but nice lehenga-choli (long skirt and blouse)! I had got this lehenga (long skirt) custom-made for the purpose of wearing it during one of the smaller wedding functions, however, I never really got down to wearing it. So it was lying new in the cupboard. Originally, I had got a red sleeveless blouse stitched to go along with this lehenga. However, I decided to ditch the red blouse and opted for a golden one instead. The blouse has got a beautiful back with latkans (as usual, I forgot to get a photo of the back), and since it’s plain gold in colour, it goes with a lot of my sarees. For dupatta (scarf/stole), I chose a red chiffon one with gold work splattered all throughout and a copper-gold border. This dupatta is a part of a red and gold salwaar-kameez which was a part of my wedding trousseau. So as you can see, this whole outfit is a result of some mix-and-match excericse! And to tell you honestly, I loved the whole look! J





How do you like this outfit? What did you wear this Diwali?
