It's hard to come across an Indian female who has never worn a sari. I, myself haven't been much of a sari person, except for weddings where I am allowed to sit at place so I could hold it together :)
But when I do wear, I am totally in love with them. Especially the simple light weight saris in which I can just walk around like I want and not call mom every time for help. It's the getting-used-to-it thing.
If I may say proudly, my mom loves me in saris. She wishes I wear them more frequently. She says they suit me better than other outfits.. she thinks they go well with my height or personality. Not sure how she relates them to it but insert *shy* emoji here.
So when I asked mom if I can borrow this sari of hers, she was more than happy and welcomed me to own the sari with open hands. And I wore it on an Indian festival.
I usually like the compact version of sari draping to keep it in tact. My mom's blouse doesn't fit me, so here I paired it with a crop top of my lehenga.. it matched perfectly with a mixture of both colors from the sari. I styled it with heavy earrings and skipped anymore jewellery except for watch and a ring. I wanted to keep it simple and coordinate everything with gold contrast.
