Who Wears Short Shorts?

When it comes to wearing makeup and/or jewelry, "less is more". A single strand of pearls says a lot more than doing the whole neacklace+earrings+ bracelets+rings combo. 

Here in the States, women enjoy a lot of freedom in attire. We can wear just about anything we fancy.
But for female travelers in India, less is definitely not more. We really need to cover up.

It's a good idea to leave your favorite skimpy tank tops and short pants at home.  People in India get offended when they see women parade around in shorts and tank tops. Scantily-clad women will attract stares and unwelcomed comments from men in India.
For those of you who are offended by my views, well tough cookies. It's not going to kill you to dress modestly. 
Better yet, consider buying a couple items to wear while in India. A sari is very comforatble, and they come in many different colors. I'm looking forward to wearing one when I'm there. I already know I'm going to get really tired of my LLBean shirts and pants. 
Thanks for visiting my blog.
