What I Wore for an Indian House-warming in Summer - #CottonAnarkali

Spending summer in India has become a big trouble if you are living in one of those hottest regions.. especially in the South or the far North. I made my latest trip to India during summer unlike every time and it was just around 40 degrees Celsius.. yea, just 40. There are also places that reached 45.. so you can imagine!

Attending a traditional function in that sweltering heat is an absolute night mare! But it's been a while I attended these occasions (cons of living abroad) and I have been waiting to attend a traditional party.

Tips to go Skiing

Coming back to blog-sphere after a long while, I realized that I missed to write this post after my previous one.

I also carry an extra pair of jacket (thinner one), socks and gloves, incase I need them post skiing to avoid dampness. I add/remove my top layers based on the weather conditions.
