Two weeks ago, everyone around the world celebrated Holi, also known as the “Festival of Colours”.
Holi celebrated the love between Radha and Krishna. Krishna always envied Radha’s fair skin and would always complain to his mother about his dark skin. To ease her son’s envy, Yashoda (Krishna’s mother) asked him to take any colour and paint Radha’s face to make her skin look like his. Hence, the custom of playing with coloured powder and coloured water on Holi began!
In addition, Holi marks the beginning of spring, celebrates fertility, colour, love, and the triumph of good over evil! Spreading love, compassion and smiles to all of you via this post! <3

My mom recently got me this orange kurti from RayEthnic in Vadodara, Gujarat which I have paired with 3 different bottoms. In India, the colour orange/saffron symbolizes fire that brings light and burns ignorance.

Look #2: Paired with informal jeans. I would wear this look to college/any informal events. Photo by: SLR Infinity.
Look 3: Ignore my double-chin if you can! Paired with plain, blue cotton pants. These type of “straight” pants are super “in” for the fall/summer season. Photo by: SLR Infinity
Wishing everyone a lovely spring-season! May you blossom with the flowers and shower love with the spring rain!
