For my final post from India I want to share this dreamy lilac dress. Well, the last post will be the food diary, which I can't wait to share. But back to this dress. I love fancy/dressy options, but you rarely get the opportunity to wear them more than once and since I'm all about reusing and repurposing, I actually borrowed this from my sister. It truly is a beautiful dress, very flattering and fun to wear. Do you share clothes with your siblings/cousins/parents?

Looking at these pictures makes me miss my wipsy bangs, they're soft and romantic as well as super flattering. But, then I remember how hard they are to maintain and that they looks this gorgeous only in pictures, so no more bangs for a few years. Fringe talk aside, after sharing those gorgeous traditional Indian outfits in the last post, I wanted to share a look that falls in line with my usual style. Of course for occasion dresses I'm choosing my favorite, Self Portrait. You know me, I love the romantic vibe, statement sleeves and asymmetrical hemline. Feeling like a modern day princess every time I wear one of his creations. Are you a fan? Let me know!

I was fortunate enough to wear a few different traditional Indian outfits on this amazing trip, so of course I want to share them with you. The pink saree was my favorite, not just because of the beautiful light pink shade but because of the craftsmanship. From the beautiful and detailed design to the luxurious fabric. I felt comfortable and beautiful wearing all the outfits, truly thankful I got to experience this. Have you worn traditional Indian clothes?

Going on a safari has been a dream of mine since high-school, which I'm sure doesn't surprise those of you who've been following since the beginning. I love animals and always try to incorporate activities with animals in my holidays. Being able to experience a safari in the Kanha tiger reserve was surreal. It was an emotional experience for me, seeing all these beautiful animals in their natural habitat and of course, the highlight was seeing tigers. Would you go on a safari in India?

Delhi is a fascinating city. You have 'Old Delhi' which includes the historic part and is situated in the north part of the city, and 'New Delhi', located in the south part, built as the capital of British India. Delhi is a cultural center with top sights such as the Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Humayun's Tomb, Agrasen ki Baoli old water reservoir, India's Gate, Swaminarayan Akshardham the Hindu Temple and so many more. To me, Delhi beautifully merges the iconic historic parts with the modern lifestyle and an incredible food scene. I fell in love with the food in India, will do a food post at the end of this travel series. But for now, would love to hear from you - have you ever thought about visiting Delhi?

Welcome to Jaipur babes! During our guided tour through the City Palace we found out Jaipur was painted pink in 1876 to welcome and impress Prince Albert. Fun fact, the maharaja's wife also loved the shade and convinced the maharaja to pass a law declaring the buildings must be painted Jaipur pink, law still standing today. The pink city was probably one of my favorite cities in India! Jaipur has a lot to offer, not just the pink buildings. It's the capital of Rajasthan and home to the City Palace, Hawa Mahal and Amber Fort. Unfortunately I didn't have time to visit the Amber Fort, but I hope to go back one day. Have you visited Jaipur and did you fall in love with it?

You can't travel to India without planing to visit the famous Taj Mahal, so here we are. It's been over a year since this amazing trip and I'm finally sharing pictures from it. I was fascinated with the Taj Mahal's story. Of course, we all know it's India's most famous monument and on everyone's bucket list. The Taj was built by emperor Shah Jahan as a dedication to his wifey Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth. It's made of white marble and was decorated with crystals, lapis and turquoise. The monument is a gesture of love but also symbolizes power through its scale, symmetry and lavishness. There is a theory that a second black marble Taj Mahal was meant to be built for emperor Shah, but constructions stoped after he was imprisoned by his son. The Taj Mahal is a UNESCO world heritage and one of the 7 new wonders of the world. Truly breathtaking to see. The day we visited was quite foggy and cold, yet nothing could take away from its beauty. After our visit we went for lunch and drinks at the famous and luxurious Oberoi. Pictures don't do the Taj Mahal and Oberoi justice, but I hope you enjoy them.
