Mother Daughter Holi Style | A classic white and pink look created with basic pieces. Twinning with my little one for Holi!
A Daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be your best friend.
Sharing another Mother Daughter style post with you all, but this time with my little one! Holi is near and we are busy celebrating, making colorful snacks, dressing up and playing Holi (stay tuned for a fun post on that!) Blame it on the Bollywood in me but nothing says Holi style to me like a simple white suit and colorful dupatta. As you know from this and this post, I often mix and match my Indian clothes. I love pairing basics with different tops, bottoms and dupattas for a varied look.
A few years ago my Mom gifted me this chikankari kurti. Chikankari is a traditional embroidery style from Lucknow, India. Chikankari translated, simply means embroidery and was traditionally done exclusively on white/pastel fabrics. Many say that Nur Jahan, the wife of Mughal emperor Jahangir introduced this type of textile design. It is one of Lucknow’s best known textile decoration styles. I absolutely love this classic type of embroidery and feel it has a distinct elegance about it.
I paired my kurti with a patiala shalwar and bright pink dupatta. And because it’s Holi, I accessorized with pink and blue accessories for an added pop of color.
My husband picked up Little Mirchi’s white suit from his recent trip to India. I swapped out the matching white dupatta and paired it with an ombré pink one, accessorizing with green and pink churriyan (bangles).
