January always reminds me of spring and bright colors. Being in South India is equivalent to having practically no winters at all, except for a short span of a month or two. This month is definitely my favorite as it still retains a bit of chill factor and lovely foggy mornings, without the numbing, uncomfortable cold of December. Light layering, bright colors, iced drinks in the afternoons and hot drinks in the evenings is what January is made of! And of course the new year, the fresh start, new plans and all that excitement associated with it (which of course lasts a very short while when we quickly realize that this year is no better or worse than the previous one!).In keeping with my mood, I decided to wear this bright and cheerful tunic, with tassels in the front, from Maandna. It’s a recently launched brand on Flipkart, with very comfortable silhouettes and peppy warm colors. I’ve never been into over the top clothing whether for casual wear or festivities, and Maandna with it’s pure cotton & gold khadi print tunics, fits the bill perfectly! I specially loved this and this for the carefully crafted mirror work and embroidery. All their embroidery work is done by desert artisans of Bikaner. Although their collection is limited in number, they have made up for it by making sure that every single piece from their collection is something you would want to buy. I would any day prefer that than to search through a hundred pieces and narrow down on one!I wanted to make this a cheerful post and what better way to spread cheer than through flowers! And since I am still hungover last month’s get-togethers and celebrations, it just made sense to prolong the holiday mood by adding a bit of sparkle with these copper toned heels and a fancy box clutch.
