Pondicherry Lookbook – A Medley of Bright Colours

I spent an entire morning walking around White Town in Pondicherry. It used to be an area specially reserved for the "white" French people settled here back in the 17th century. In the present day, as you walk around this area, you'll be greeted by walls painted in vivid colours, adorned by bougainvillea flowers. I had spent countless hours looking up all the places in Pondicherry on Instagram and Pinterest. My research told me to pack enough bright, summery clothes for the White Town area and the cute cafes. On the other hand, I needed a little more reserved clothing for Auoville and Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Nobody likes to visit a place of worship in shorts! With all of this in consideration, take a look at my clothing for Pondicherry.

Outfit Details

My first outfit was a pink ruffle top that matched with the pink of the bougainvillea flowers. This top was paired with blue biker jeans. I also tugged around my blue and white backpack. Overall, the look worked really well while walking around the French Quarters because of the color coding. The pink and blue against a white wall underneath matching pink flowers is a match made in heaven. Add pink quirky jutisΒ and sunglasses and voila! You have a picture perfect outfit.

While visiting Auroville, an experimental community where people from different nations live in harmony, I choose a flowy maxi skirt. A carolina blue colored skirt paired with a white shirt was my outfit for the day. It was easy to walk around the entire area in a skirt, especially since I had managed to injured my leg. The skirt allowed a lot of movement and looked super elegant in pictures. I felt nothing short of royalty! To add a pop of color to the outfit, I wore bright tassel earrings that I bought from a market in Delhi. An added bonus was that the cool colors of my outfit complemented the warm colors of the Matrimandir.

For strutting around Pondicherry and visiting the local Churches, I paired a white t-shirt with light blue jeans and my trusted sneakers. The top has some funky patchwork that made it interesting. I donned pink feather earrings to make the overall outfit more interesting. On a chilly day, add a denim jacket to this outfit for walking around town or for a casual airport look.

Saving the best for the last. This is my favorite outfit amongst all the clothes that I wore in Pondicherry. A simple, pastel striped dress, sneakers and a handy bendy complimented each other well to form a breezy outfit. I wore this while I was strolling around White Town and photographing the bright houses and walls. The knee-length dress was a convenient choice of clothing since it allowed easy movement, unlike jeans which feel tight and sticky after a while, Sneakers helped me walk for long without hurting my feet. I added a white bendy to accentuate the outfit and donned sunglasses during the day when I stepped outside.
