53 Week Journey through the Land of Drapes and Colors: Week #13

For details on all the sarees I have posted so far, go here.

This past weekend we all celebrated Mother's Day, one of the days when the florists have the maximum sales. Personally, I think we should celebrate every day Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day, Teacher's Day, and all those front-liners who keep our lives safe and moving. :)

Anyways, for this Mother's Day, my mother's side cousins decided to have a virtual call including our respective mothers. We are all spread between India, USA and Europe. Considering the large family my mom has, it was a rather large crowd on the call. However, it was such a pleasure to see everyone even if it was a very noisy one. :)

Since we were asked to get dressed up, I took the opportunity to wear one more of my saree to add to my blog here. :P I picked my mom's second favorite color, Pink this time. There was considerable wind so it took a few tries before I could finalize the photo. Note the flying pallu and ever more flying hair. :P

This is a peach pink soft handloom cotton net saree with gray border and pink-grey mix pallu. I paired it with a flower-printed cotton dark peach pink blouse. I am not sure the exact material of the saree, but it came very close to Changeri Cotton Net. I am guessing that is the material.
