Red lips & Roses

I cannot believe that there is only a week left of Ramadan! I say this every year, but it seriously flies by so quickly. I still have NO idea what I’m wearing for Eid but this gorgeous floral maxi dress from Urban Modesty could be your Eid dress! I’ve paired it with a boater hat and red lipstick for a classic Parisian look and I’m really loving how vintage it looks <3

Feed Your Soul

A new company based in Malaysia called Hessa Bags recently contacted me to send me one of their beautiful bags. I was quite honored to be the first blogger to collaborate with them! The company strives to produce meaningful yet practical bags because sometimes we can get so wrapped in this dunya that we need daily reminders to shift our focus on what really matters, our deen. It was not pictured because I couldn’t get a clear picture of it but on the backside of the bag there are words written on each of the little red flags stemming from the flowers: tilawah, tawbah, dhikr, shukr, sabr, sadaqah, halaqa, tawakkal, tafakkur, du’a, and solat, these words are to serve as daily reminders and remembrance of Allah (swt). A portion of their proceeds are donated to charity, and every month they highlight a new charity that their donations will be going to. The bags are gorgeous and practical for anyone on the go, they are the perfect size too and fit everything you need on a daily basis. They are very well made; lined on the inside with a zipper top closure. They also have 3 different pockets inside, and two on the outside with button closures. They currently come in two colors, Feed Your Soul (Dawn)and Feed Your Soul (Dusk). I am holding the Dawn in these photos. They are priced at RM179.00 MYR this converts to $47.00 in USD and remember that a portion does go to charity! I hope you love them as much as I do <3

The Elysia Embroidery dress from Kaftan for Less

Many cultures have their own “cultural clothing” so to say, I am Lebanese and we do not have any particular traditional clothing and sometimes that makes me sad. I would say this dress is close to the traditional Moroccan kaftans so I was super excited to finally be wearing some type of traditional attire even if it wasn’t from my own culture. The Elysia Embroidery dress from Kaftan for Less is absolutely beautiful and can be worn to any special event you may have coming up. I am wearing the Plum color in these pictures.

Neutrals

If I could wear neutrals everyday, I would. They are just so classy and timeless, they can make anyone look good! For this outfit I decided to go full on neutral from head to toe and I absolutely loved the way it turned out. I am wearing the Dolce Dots hijab from Austere Attire, its unfortunately sold-out at the moment, I’m not sure if they will restock it or not but they have many other options, such as the Solid Nude hijab. The Gemstone headpiece I am wearing is also from Austere Attire and they have a couple other pretty ones to choose from as well!

Pastels

I don’t know about you girls but I love pastels. They’re just so beautiful and girly! When Austere Attire sent me the Sugar Pop hijab in this light peach color it inspired me to put together this pastel colored outfit. I really liked the material of this hijab, it was not slippery at all and it had little polka-dots all over it that you could actually feel when you touch the hijab. The hijab is from their new collection which just went live a couple days ago and its still available for only $15.00!!! They have so many hijabs to choose from for extremely affordable prices such as this one.

Florals, stripes & boyfriend jeans.

My favorite thing ever is pairing up two patterns together. Sometimes this can be hard to do because it ends up looking tacky and all wrong, but you can never go wrong with florals and stripes! I particularly really liked this outfit because it was just so comfortable and laid back but looked very put-togther nevertheless. The hijab I’m wearing was sent to me by The Hijab Souq and I really loved it, the fabric was light and breathable. They have many prints and plain colored hijabs as well for very low prices, you should definitely check them out.

Safitri Dress from Kaftan For Less

Not too long ago Kaftan For Less sent us their Safitri Dress in the color Tosca and I am absolutely in love with it! It came with a matching pashmina scarf that was of the same material as the dress but I decided to pair it up with a different hijab. My favorite part about it is that its not too long, most dresses I receive usually need to be altered because they’re way too long for me! But this one was perfect because you can dress it up with heels or style it in a casual way with comfortable flats. For this look I decided to dress it up with some nude heels, beige hijab, some gold accessories and a statement beaded clutch.

I hope you love it <3
