Burst of Colour at the Bus Stop

I see this woman downtown quite often, and when I came across her waiting for a bus in this beautiful turquoise pants and tunic (I know there is a name for this outfit worn by women from India, but I don't know what it is--feel free to help me out here) I knew it was her blog moment.  I also loved how the bright yellow cover of her book popped against the turquoise.  A friend had given her the outfit which was not only very comfortable in the extreme heat we had during the summer, but also her favourite colour.

  1. Looks more like a salwar kameez.

  2. It's called a salwar suit or a salwar kameez (salwar being the trousers and kameez or suit being the tuniclike top)

    It's a traditional indian-pakistani-bangladeshi outfit.

    I don't know why I have this feeling that I have seen this lady in Toronto as well.

    Love from Toronto

  3. Thanks Trishna! I don't know if this woman (whose name is Susan) spends time in Toronto, but she is always around downtown London, and very passionate about environmental and social issues.
