When I was little, I used to wait all year for the revelation of our Annual exam schedules because most often, exams smack us right in the middle of the most important celebration of our lives: HOLI!
Holi is a Hindu spring festival in India and Nepal, also known as the “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”.
To us, Holi meant holidays and lots of colours and water balloons and fun with friends for the entire day!
This year, Bishnupur hosted its first ever Basanta Utsob this year, and we couldn’t be more happier. Bishnupur is a really beautiful place, with its state of the art architecture, and gorgeous monuments. So, I decided to do a kind of destination photoshoot at a place which complements my idea and also, brings out the beauty of the heritage of Indian culture. And what’s a better place than Bishnupur?
This time, I decided to brain storm and find out new way to style myself in new ways that is uncommon. So, keeping the tradition Indian ethnic style, I layered it with a leather jacket and ditched the dupatta altogether.
And so, that is not my real hair. You would probably find me in a mental asylum if I ever decided to grow out my hair THAT long. It’s hair extension that I got from Bellami Hair, and I gotta say, their products are fabulous!
I picked up Bohemian style accessories from a local mela and got this statement maang tikka from Flipkart which surprisingly complimented the outfit very well. The turquoise ring is a personal favourite because that ring goes well with everything I wear. I had bought the flip flops from Delhi Haat and the tote bags from Shantiniketan.
Hope you guys enjoyed the post! If you liked it, please do comment! I promise to bring out more ideas like these in my future posts! 😀 And till then, Happy Holi, guys!
