I have been dreaming of going to India for a while now. My BF's parents have made several trips there over the past 7 years that I have known them, and I wanted desperately to go, but the timing never worked out quite right. I have always been awed by the beautiful beadwork and bright colours that Indian outfits display and the bold jewelry that matches perfectly. I got the privilege of wearing a few outfits over the years and when I attended a family wedding, and it was so much fun! We are getting ready to go to another wedding in a few weeks and I just picked up my very first saree. It is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to show you! Although a blonde haired, blue eyed dutch girl does look a little strange in an indian saree, I don't care. I've realized that as long as you stand tall with confidence in whatever you are wearing, people will notice you first, not the outfit. Here's a few inspiring pictures and some of the outfits I have worn in the past. Take a cue from these beautiful women on how to use colour in your spring wardrobe. Enjoy!
