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.
I accessorized it with a long necklace made of pearls and tourmaline stones, earrings made of tourmaline and silver, and pink / grey combo bangles on my wrist. I posed along-side the rose plant my mother planted when I bought this home. It is not flowering yet since we still have cold nights, however, the plant does give rather large peach pink flowers. How appropriate, isn't it.
And just so you are curious, pictured here is one of the instance of the Zoom call I had with my cousins and family. People were joining in and out, but I believe this is the time when most were present.
