Vacation Diaries I : A pop of orange

Hello everyone!

It has been quite a while since my last post! I have been on Holiday and I am currently trying to settle down to daily routines, unpacking and trying to change my workspace and give it a new look  . Back to my outfit post : here is the first of many updates to come , a casual look I pieced together to go out for lunch and some shopping with my husband.

I dont usually wear orange but I paired this orange shawl so that it brings out the hidden pop of colour in the skirt.

Bag from here

I’m simply in love with this bag! It is handy,comfortable and has lots of space! A perfect choice especially when you’re traveling.

I’m sorry for the poor quality of the pictures! Will try to improve my photography and editing skills for the next post in sha Allah!

Keep checking for new posts! I have a new vacation outfit look book video coming out as well!

Outfit post : Day at the beach

Last weekend, I went to hulhumale’ (a thirty minute ferry ride from Male’; where I live ) to spend the morning at the beach with my husband and his sisters and cousins. It was a bright sunny day and I opted to wear something cooling and comfortable with a beachy feel to it at the same time :

A jersey maxi dress with a chiffon tassel cardigan and a soft crepe shawl wrapped loosely to let the air circulate.

I paired the clothes with a woven bad and comfy shoes.

I love how the flower print on the cardigan pops out when worn with black

_MG_1483The tasseled sleeves look lovely but can prove to be somewhat inconvenient as they kept getting tangled on the zipper of my bag , branches etc.

What do you think? What would you wear for a day spent by the sea with the sun above you and sand beneath your feet?

Outfit Post : A grey evening

It has been a very hectic week, with bridal orders and weddings every evening and I haven’t had much time to blog or keep my instagram or pages updated. I finally found some time this afternoon to take a few pictures and blog my evening outfit :

IMG_1032I added a sparkly statement necklace to add some elegance to this very casual looking ensemble.

IMG_0992I love the wavy folds on the sides of this skirt; gives it a very edgy + Boho-esque vibe.

A bit of bling gave this outfit the perfect look for an evening out.

What do you think? how would you pair your grey and black clothes?

Outfit Post : Florals and head chains

The mid term break has officially begun and with it I have been up to my ears in bridal hijab styling appointments and headpiece and bouquet orders. However today being a friday, I was rather free and decided to spend sometime out with my husband. I made a head / forehead chain to match with my hijab and wore this elegant Saveeria Print chiffon maxi dress from Poplook :

IMG_0799I paired the dress with a glitter, maxi hijab in mint .

IMG_0825The dress had a beautiful floral print running down the sides of both arms and the same print at the hem as well.
