Airport OOTD

Fashion, Self

Hey guys! As you all know, I went on a trip to Canada recently for Eid and had a wonderful time exploring. I went sight seeing, food hunting, shopping, and more. You can follow me on Instagram @rafafarihah to watch all the cool videos I posted while there. I even brought back Canadian candy and made a YouTube video of it! I put so much work into my videos so I would really appreciate if you all Subscribed ūüėė

Anyways, on with my OOTD at the airport:

Normally I look like a bum at the airport, but this year, I reinvented myself and started dressing up more often. I was going for a laid back and comfortable look, which is why I chose the joggers (basically cute sweatpants) and a light knit shirt with long slits. I have to admit, add a touch of leather to¬†any boring outfit, and it becomes street chic. If you buy anything from my look, do invest in a quality faux leather jacket and pointed faux leather flats (which are about $10 sometimes if on sale). These two items will make any ordinary outfit go from “Okay” to “Wow!” And sometimes…we all need a little “Wow!” in our lives.

Want to find a neat way to look chic even when you are in a hurry?

Accessories speak a thousand words. Whether you step out in sweats or distressed jeans, a simple scarf thrown over, a hat, a ring, or nice shoes can alter your¬†look completely. Just because it is finals week or you just rolled out of bed, doesn’t mean you should look like a bum.

How you look has a profound impact on your level of confidence. If you ran into a potential employer or potential partner at the grocery store, ask yourself if you would want to approach them if your hair is in a bun, your under-eye bag game is strong, you missed a spot while shaving, and are wearing sweats and flip flops. By all means, be comfortable in your own skin but unfortunately, in this world first impressions mean a lot. This is why employers care so much about your clothing choices in interviews. Would you wear neon yellow strappy heels or classic black pumps?

1. Your shoes show who you are, while your hair/hat shows who you want to be perceived as.

If you aren’t going to the beach, there is no need to settle for flip flops. That’s not trying. If flats are your thing, try faux leather sandals like these:

2. It’s the little things that count. Don’t overdo your jewelry. No one has time for that. A simple thumb ring and cuff will suffice and make you look classy.

3. Style¬†up the inevitable. If you have to go to school, work, or the grocery store, you need a purse, wallet, or a bag with you. Don’t buy a basic backpack. Get something colorful or cute so that you won’t have to do anything extra to glam up your look. Just grab your daily backpack/purse and head out. Make sure to buy these in neutral colors to ensure they go with most of your outfits. A brown-orange leather color, deep blue, dark red, black and white are your safest options.

4. All you need for this trick is a scarf. Scarves can be worn in hundreds of different styles. Buy four patterned scarves for less than $15 at Walmart and you are good to go. Style them up a different way each week and revive a normally dull look.

Have fun on your journey to glamour!

What Would Jenn Wear?

Fashion, Thoughts

Recently discovered this YouTuber and I have got to say, I love what she does and her outfits are spectacularly chic. I would definitely wear the clothes she picked out, especially because our styles are so similar. It is my dream to start a YouTube channel like this some day. Make sure to subscribe to her channel clothesencounters !

On a side note, I applied to become a writer for Her Campus at Texas A&M University two weeks ago and I got in! This will be a wonderful opportunity for me to grow as a versatile ¬†writer and to¬†improve my content for you guys. Wish me luck ūüėÄ

Take a peek at what Jenn has to show off!
