Do you remember the first time you went to the beach? I feel like the wide expanse of the never ending sea can be really overwhelming the first time you see it. It was one of the most beautiful experiences for me and I will always remember that. People often ask if you are a beach person or a mountain person. I used to be able to say I’m a mountain person. Given that I hail from a hilly area, I will always be a pahadi kid at heart. But I am also a water baby and I love being in the water. Thus, the beach has grown on me. There is certain calmness to hearing the waves thrash against the shore, that kind of placates the waves and turbulence in your mind. Sitting by the sea basking in the sun, is one of the greatest pleasures in life and makes for an ideal vacation.
Now that my rant is done, let’s come to the outfit. Going to a beach usually means throwing a beach cover or shorts over a swimsuit. I wasn’t planning on stepping into the water on this day and decided to give a twist to traditional beachwear and instead wear “Traditional” Beach wear.(At least as traditional as beach wear can get) 😀
Who would’ve thought that a sari/ Lehenga blouse makes a great beach top. I paired this pink sari blouse with a pair of calf length red palazzo pants that are ideally meant to go with kurtis and it create a pretty unique color blocked look. I also used a beautiful black dupatta/ stole as a coverup. I love how this look turned out. It was comfortable while at the same time beach ready. An interesting neckpiece and a thrifted ring completed the look. For my footwear, I kept it simple with a pair of sequined chappals. A little bit of boho and a little tradional, the inner gypsy came alive.
I hope you liked the outfit and were inspired to try something similar the next time you head to the beach. Sanskari beach girl signing off!
