INDIAN SUMMER

When in Rome, you do as the Romans do, and when in Rajasthan, India, you  succumb to the bright colours and share in the joy of wearing bright costume and attire. I grew a progressive fondness for the bright and vibrant colours as we proceeded further North into the province, and by the time I reached Udaipur, I sported full regalia in the brightest green and blue imaginable. Our port of entry was New Delhi, where we approached Agra to visit the famous Taj Mahal. I was determined to wear traditional garb for the occassion to the magnificent monument. I scaled the street stalls, markets and bazaars of New Delhi, and  found this lovely dress at Westside, a department store in India, where one can shop for every colour and style that you can imagine from traditional Saree's to tunics and dresses, all worn with pants or leggings. It represents a typical Rajasthan style, with a slightly fitted top  and  flair bottom embellished around the seam, and worn with pants tapered down to the ankle. I should have added a scarf that ought to be twisted around the neck, falling down the side, but the tropical heat, even in winter, deterred me from adding any more cloth than already engulfed in.
