Rock It up, the Shirt & Lehenga way !

Hey lovelies !!!!  Wassup ?
So, summers here and we are already feeling the heat. Yes, the temperature is almost around 40 degrees and it's just the beginning.😭

Recently for a party, where Indian wear was the dress code for the day, I experimented with fusion. I did not want to wear the usuals - Anarkali, Saree or lehenga. I played around with casuals and ethnic & the results were pretty amazing. Wanna see....

I teamed my sheer navy shirt which had a bit of embellishment with a white lehenga having hints of magenta and indigo. The lehenga is a stunning piece with ornate gold and silver  work on it. I wore minimum accessories with it, just a beautiful ear cuff & a long tasselled neckpiece in gold. What completed the look was a hot pink clutch. 

How do you rate it yay or nay....lemme know. Till then bye-bye and loads of love......muahhh
