Style Inspiration: Bollywood

Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited to be heading to Florida for a mini vacation.  Lately I have felt a little zapped of energy and creativity so I hope that a little break from the routine and cold weather will help me feel refreshed and recharged.

And speaking of vacations, my mom is on vacation in India enjoying some warm weather and of course shopping too.  She asked me to give her styles and colors for sari's and outfits I want. So I have been browsing outfits on the Internet for inspiration and checking out the latest styles over at one of my favorite blogs, Bollywood Style Diaries.  Being Indian-American I appreciate Indian fashion and I enjoy wearing sari's and Indian outfits. (here and here) I also love getting personal style and fashion inspiration from Indian actresses, designers, and models.  I thought I would share with you a few outfits that have caught my attention.

Naina, just got back from India last week. You have to ask your mom to get you a sari-lehenga. You can wear it as either, but the nice thing is you don't have to worry about the pleats with kid(s) tugging at your sari!

I love Katrina Kaif even though she acts in in Hindi movies and can't speak Hindi. The new sheer sari look is my favorite. Masi is in India next week and is getting me nice suits as well. Have fun in sunny Florida!
