Local lady in traditional Lao dress

As I was exit-ing the grounds of the Pha That Luang main stupa and walking out of the main entrance door, I spotted this lady, one of the temple officials (hence her tag) in ethnic Laotian dress. Yes, apart from the flowery printed pyjama style loose trousers worn by most girls in Laos, this skirt and blouse combo with light coloured embroidery at the bottom of the skirt is the more formal local attire. The lady, though embarrassed, was quite happy to pose for me. (Vientaine, Laos/ Lao PDR, April 2014)
