Another fine day in Ubud and this time in Ruffles. I’ve seen many people carrying one specific style that defines them and their personality. But what I feel is we, being a part of this universe, possess infinite possibilities. Everything is evolving and so are we, right? So how can one stick to a particular way of style to carry? That’s definitely not me. I’ve always tried to confuse people with who I really am because I never stick with one style all the time. That’s boring and extreme! I try not to be an extremist when it comes to carrying any specific way of styling. I’m evolving and the more I learn, the more I try on myself, because wait, who else can do that for me?
Ubud in mind, the best dress I could put on for the day is this mustard-shade off-shoulder one with full of ruffles. Sunny day and surroundings of paddy fields, what best could possibly fit? This one I’ve got from Lulu&Sky and as stated in my previous article, it’s there right in front of you. Arose in Spain, ruffles made me look more like a Persian woman. It’s not my own judgment though, it came from a very beautiful Persian woman I met in Ubud. That’s the thing about travelling, you get exposed to the variety of people of this world. We had a little chat that wasn’t predicted even a second before. That conversation left a smile on my face not because I got the compliment, but because I was amazed that a woman, totally strange to me, took some of her seconds out to connect with me. She made me feel special that involved no mean reason. And that unravels a fact that women are NOT their own worst enemies.
As it was a hot sunny day, a hat was a must, especially if it has a bow-knot on the top, along with a beautiful sling weaved bag with tassels on the below that I was so looking forward to buying and these ankle-strap flip-flops that completed my look as a little bit of a Persian one. Just kidding! That obviously came as a surprising fact to me. And yeah, how can I forget these beautiful golden compound leaves hanging through the little hole in my ears. I’ve mentioned the detailed details of the entire outfit at the end of the post.
There were some feng-shui I saw in one of the temples in Ubud which looked pretty to my eyes and so I captured them in my camera to share with you all. I haven’t bought any of these though, not knowing how it functions, it was just an overdo as a decor in my room. I’ve also got some shots of the paddy field, zoomed-in and zoomed-out versions, to show you the real face of Ubud. Ubud is all about the paddy fields and the temples. If you ever visit Bali, Ubud is a must.
Coming back to my outfit which is all about frills, it could turn me into a boho chic as well, had it been carried that way. By carrying I mean accessorizing it in a hippie style with boots may be complemented with some bohemian jewelry and forehead headband as a cherry on top but I was not aiming for that. This idea is for those who’d like it hippie way, and you never know when I evolve to become one of them. 😉
You must also be wondering what this tagline has to do with my post? So, here I am to finally unravel the mystery. And the mystery is…
This quote! HA-HA! It was one of the quotes written in one of the streets in Ubud (see below) that seemed to be a feast for the eyes and hence, it’s my tagline. Now, how’s that, huh?
