Color blocked in Pondicherry

I have a confession to make – I have no idea if I can at all pull these fashion related posts. But the pictures that I made in the White Town turned out to be so beautiful that I eventually wanted to make an album of all the photographs.

I am someone who loves packing light and hates following fast fashion trends. Considering the travel itinerary, we only had 1 last day in the White Town in Pondicherry which I wanted to spend revisiting all the streets and the colourful buildings and houses. For me, the essence of Pondicherry lies in slow walking across these cobbled lanes relishing the calmness that place brings about.

Waltzing in the French Quarters

The tropical climate of the town definitely called for a breezy outfit. Moreover, I took this trip back in July, which means the weather was gonna be clear with occasional rains. That was my cue for packing. Also, the fact that the French Quarter is jammed by colour blocked buildings with pretty bougainvillaea sprawling out from over the walls makes up for some picture perfect frames. To add a perfect contrast to these buildings, I picked a bold wine coloured flowy cotton dress for my daylong shenanigans in the White Town.

As you can see, the wine hued midi dress stood out very well against all the walls. It was classy yet comfortable cos’ comfort is the priority always. Also helped me great deal in avoiding any awkward stares by local Tamil men (mind you, this mind be the French Quarter but you are still in India). Paired the dress with some chic silver earrings and a pair of ballerina flats that kept me moving.

The beautiful pictures in the entire album are courtesy of my dear cousin and partner-in-crime Shweta (upsides of having a travel companion 😉).

Tell me what to do you think of this article. Should I do more posts on my look books from my trips? Would you be interested?
