India: What I wore

Outfit posts a plenty. I'm quite impressed that I actually remembered to photograph my outfit everyday. Sorry they're not the best photos, but I did the best I could with the light that was there. My last room didn't even have a window.

From left to right:

4. Blouse - Love Culture (USA), Skirt - Primark, Scarf - Gift 
5. Blouse - River Island, Skirt - Primark
6. T-shirt - Zara, Skirt - some stall I don't know where in Las Vegas, USA 
7. T-shirt - Zara, Skirt - Primark, Scarf - India
8. Dress - New Look, Jacket - H&M

The thing you have to make sure in India is that you dress modestly so it was maxi skirts and dresses a lot of the time for me. I really enjoyed getting to wear a scarf everyday as I have loads at home but don't usually wear them. 

I think my favourite outfit was to wear was 7 just because it was very colourful and even though it didn't really match it was fun. 

(The sandals are from Primark)

My second favourite was number 8 that I wore on the day I went to the Taj Mahal. Purely for the comfort factor. This dress is very easy to wear was ideal for the heat. 

I also painted my nails for the occasion. I painted them twice actually over the trip as I did such a horrible job the first time. (Patience is a virtue!)


This is the one cool nail from the first time. Funnily enough the pattern was done by my dad! I was trying to use this gadget that my parents brought me from the USA where you can print a pattern on your nails and failing miserably. This wasn't a complete success but I liked the randomness of it.


On my last night in India, I took my time while watching tv and properly painted my nails. Polka dots! This colour is officially my holiday nail colour.

What do you like to wear on holiday?

Coming up: A few of my favourite photos from the trip (promise not to bombard you with too many!)


  1. Great outfits! You manage to look great even in the heat. My holiday outfits change depending where I visit. If I'm in Europe I wear a lot of strappy dresses and denim shorts. If I'm in some parts if Asia I dress more modestly but I get so hot and sweaty that fashion tends to go out the window! Also I usually carry a backpack around which doesn't help! X

    1. Thanks! I certainly didn't feel great most of the time. I didn't realise the back of my hand could sweat! ha ha :) x

  2. I love your third outfit! It is just super adorable!

  3. Thanks! I usually wear this for the office but it seemed to work over there :) x
