Cross Cultural

Physically, this outfit is wonderfully comfortable, but it is outside of my normal sartorial comfort zone.  I felt perfectly dressed when I wore it in India, but it feels a bit out of place here.  I slightly mitigated that feeling by swapping out the coordinating harem pants for brown leggings and leaving the matching shawl on the hanger. It is a little traditional Indian crossed with a little typical Western.

Tunic, purchased in India; leggings, Walmart; sandals, Younkers; earrings, handmade by me; necklace, purchsed at Arts in the Heart; bracelets, made by me, handmade and gifted (thanks Chenille!), and thrifted.

I've only worn this custom-made tunic a few times since I purchased it in India last summer.  I love the intricately embroidered fabric.  I wish I had brought a bolt of it home with me.

As is often the case, I realize that I look a lot different (and less awkward) than I thought.
