I think indian wear is absolutely beautiful with its vibrant colours and delicate fabrics. there's not a woman who didn't look stunning dressed in a saree. lehengas make even the most mundane days feel like special occasions. so even though this outfit my sister-in-law generously let me borrow didn't fit me perfectly, i ended up feeling pretty and special in it.
also, on several occasions, i'm happy to wear clothes that respect my fiance's cultural background and his family.
even much more than for the previous points i made, i just often desperately want to blend in and disappear into the colourful crowd. but the sad part is that no matter how hard i try, people will always see me as an alien in this country i call home. (ps. my tummy is the biggest insecurity i have and it's a huge deal for me to wear something showing it off in public. especially on instagram. but here i am, channeling all the indian ladies before me, zero f***s given!) #jaipur #india #sonyalpha #sigma #effyourbeautystandards
