Only recently did I realise that I have never really done a Kerala saree post for my blog. So, on a very sunny day in Sharjah I decided to step out for a stroll wearing a simple Kerala saree (kasavu saree) with golden zari and a matching necklace and earring set with faux pearl detailing. A contrast blouse in rani pink, pink lips and a pink bindi completed my look.
I got the necklace and earring set from Vasah India (website/ FB/ Instagram), a brand based in Chennai. Apart from jewelry like necklaces and nose pins, they also produce Mangalgiri and kasavu sarees. Head to their page to check out their latest collection.
I started wearing kasavu sarees when I was about 14. I wore it to various functions and Onam celebration at school, and later in my engineering college and MBA institute. But this was probably the first time I wore a kasavu saree without a pleated pallu. And I should admit, I loved it!
I wore my hair in a fishtail braid initially. My friend wanted to see how a messy bun would look on me, so we gave that a try. I like how the bun looks with the outfit, gives it an easy-breezy look.
Do let me know what you think of the look, and how you would style your kasavu saree. Probably something we can all try this Onam 😉
I will be back with another interesting post. Follow me on Instagram to see my daily outfits (OOTDs as we call them).
