Daily Outfit: Desi Girl


Jun 17, 2012


{Jacket: The Garage | Tank: Joe Fresh | Skirt:Indian Market | Shoes: Payless } 

On Friday I met up with some girlfriends for a coffee date, and decided to continue my experiment with casual looks. Taking inspiration from all of the boho-chic outfits I’ve seen on Pinterest, and channelling my inner desi girl this is what I came up with.


For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term desi, here’s what Wikipedia had to say:
Desi – slang for people, culture, and products of the Indian sub-continent. “Desi” is a diverse term that can signify anyone with South Asian ancestry.” 
This skirt actually reminds me very much of the colours and style that I wore on my wedding. It has the same type of tie die called ‘bandhani’ and just makes me very happy. 
  1. This is such a pretty look – I love the boho influences and the “desi” feel (I did not know that term, thank you for explaining). You look confident and relaxed. Love the owl!
    Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

  8. You look lovely, Raj! Absolutely gorgeous 🙂 And pink is definitely your hue, you need to wear it more often 🙂 And being hippie is a positively brilliant thing.
