EID OUTFIT…#5

Last, but by no means least, this runner up outfit is the simplest of them all. Pretty straight forward. Dress, bag, shoes, the end! These are the types of dresses I live in as of recently. Comfort and style go hand in hand, and I do love a loose-fitting dress. Love the no shape look as you can choose to either cinch up or stay loose. All the dresses I own in this tiered style are loose and I usually like to buy them in medium to have extra room. Also, because my body shape changed with pregnancy, I feel sexier in dresses like this for some reason. Don’t want my hips to show too much because I don’t know how to deal with them lately. It isn’t that I am fatter, not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s that my bone structure changed because, obviously, I carried a child for 9 months, but I am still not comfortable with the extra hips I have. If you know what I mean.


Nonetheless, I try to dress up to stay happy and happy mommy equals a happy family. Plus, I try to be an inspiration to my daughter to love herself no matter what shape or size she is. We will all die in the end, so enjoy what God gave you!


I never wear green, ever! Especially in this tone. Very daring I must say. My types of green are usually dark, like forest green. So, it took lots of guts for me to add this dress into my wardrobe (again, from H&M), but I knew that it would be a staple in my summer wardrobe. And with the right accessories, it can quite easily transition into fall and winter too. A little excellent tip for you to follow. Always try to buy clothes that can transition from season to season to be eco-friendly and to save on spending.


Since this dress has boho vibes, I went for a boho style veil and I love how it came out. Added a little vintage bag I got as a gift from a friend. My daughter gets angry every time I use this bag because she wants it for herself. It’s so cute!! I can’t even handle how much she loves dressing up at only 22 months. Like how edible?? Anyway, the two-tone green look is actually cool. Plus, I added a kitty in the mix! Even more perfect!!!

Most probably will end up wearing this outfit because of how simple and straightforward it is. I love it! How do you guys feel about this one? Yay or nay?

On another note, I want to take the time to wish to all those celebrating the happiest of Eids. An Eid filled with love, peace of mind happiness, and lots of health. Although this year is different with COVID, you can still take the time to share the love and joy with your loved ones and neighbors in a different way. Spread happiness! Spread the joy!

Eid ubarak and happy Friday!

Punching life in the face with a colorful outfit!

Happy 2019 y’all! May anything you dream of happens and comes to life and flourishes to take you place you’ve never been to before. Day 4 of the New Year and I can’t help but feel quite stressed out and worried already; adulating is hard! Sometimes I wish I was little again and had all my problems taken care of or just go back to the times where finding an outfit was the biggest problem I’ll ever face in life! Sigh……
Despite that, here I am out and about trying to carve my way into this thing called life. I was quite sure and focused about my goals 4 years ago and I knew exactly how to get there, my plans were devised and I was working my way up to my dreams. Things happen, unexpectedly, and life takes you to roads you aren’t quite sure how to handle. I guess I may have put my career on hold and through all these hardships I have been through, I am happy to say that right now, where I am in life, I am content because I found something much more meaningful and fulfilling; love and family. Yes, my job is cut-out for me at this point but I feel more focused and I’m more confident in what I want and don’t want anymore. Cutting out people that bring negativity and drama into my life is much easier and it brings me inner peace and mental health. Using fashion and dressing up is always a way for me to bring my mood up and have a jolly spirit and today’s outfit gave me exactly that! It’s badass, it’s cheerful, it’s wonderful and it makes me happy because it’s a combination of vintage and modern pieces and that’s always the way I want to go.

I got these wonderful boots from Nova (thrift shop) a couple of weeks ago and they were only 5$! I fell in love right away when my eye caught them. They’re giving me super Lenny Kravitz circa the 70s vibes!!! They’re so freaking beautiful! I can’t!!! And I know they’re not everyone’s cuppa tea but, man, are they special. The heel itself brings me so much joy…even the stretchy faux leather gives me thrills! I feel like whenever you’d have a dull outfit, you’d pull these bad boys out and voila! Boom! Clap! Your outfit would be made!

WHAT I AM WEARING

JACKET: Sam Edelman ◊ SWEATER: Forever 21 ◊ JEANS: Tommy Hilfiger ◊ BOOTS: Vintage ◊ BAG: Vintage ◊ SUNGLASSES: Aldo ◊ BELT: Forever 21

Even though the boots are loud enough, I couldn’t help but add even more color and wear a rainbow sweater! Yes, rainbow yet again, because why not? And how can I forget this amazing green vintage ostrich bag. So cute!

I think it is important for us to know our weaknesses and our issues and say them outlook to ourselves but it is even more important to push through them and prevail to arrive to a better version of ourselves. So, yes, adulating is quite hard for me these days but despite it all, I am where I am meant to be.
