Culottes + Metallics

Fashion

Hello friends! As the holidays approach quickly, the year is coming to a close end, but I am in no way prepared for a brand new year. Sometimes I wish the holidays would never end. I love the pretty lights and decorations everywhere, and let’s not forget the sales. There are so many new trends this fall and I am definitely splurging this Black Friday to snag myself some statement pieces. This fall, we have vintage looking fur coats, knee length boots, metallics, velvet, belted coats, and the color red trending.

Since metallics are my absolute favorite, I’ve come up with your next go-to look.

Metallics

Matte colors are so basic. In order to create that little pop in your outfit, you need something that stands out, and that’s exactly why I love metallics. You can tuck in this long sleeve metallic shirt with palazzo pants, bell bottoms, slacks, jeans, you name it. Don’t confuse metallics for glitter. Glittery tops can look cheap and tacky. The metallics I suggest investing in, are the tops with metallic threads so you won’t leave a trail of glitter behind you. Metallic leather purses are so gorgeous. It’s the statement piece everyone needs.

Culottes

Culottes are basically palazzo flare/fancy pants that end at your ankles. Just the right coverage if you’re into modest fashion, and it doesn’t have you tripping all over it while you’re climbing stairs. And now, you can actually show off your pretty shoes. Culottes are all over the runways during NYFW. Pair them with metallic oxfords, grey oxfords, or even strappy heels like I did.

Picnic Blankets and Pina Coladas

Fashion

Fall is in the air and new styles are trending. Shopping for chic but modest outfits that don’t break that bank is like searching for a needle in a haystack. It’s vexing to scour heaps of clothes only to find one embroidered long sleeve top that ends up costing $50.

So I have resorted to online shopping and I don’t mean on the sites of mainstream retail stores. My friend Merziya  introduced to Boohoo and Shein which, to be honest, I was a little skeptical about. Online stores don’t give me the option of returning clothes at the physical store and quickly picking out an alternative.

Summer Lookbook

Fashion

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! This summer has kicked off to a great start, with Ramadan already half way through and a looming internship in the big apple. I know it’s been a while since I posted here so I promise I am going to get back into it.

Filming this lookbook took a great deal of work, but boy was it worth it. I really do hope you enjoy it and maybe even end up buying some of the statement pieces. The looks were meant to be as diverse as possible, with different styles and color schemes.

Spring Break Getaway OOTD

Fashion

During spring break a few weeks ago, my family decided to go on a mid-week getaway at a secluded resort in Austin, Texas. Barton Creek Resorts was beautiful, surrounded by flourishing plants. Greenery pervaded the acreage as we had a front-view of the golf course from our window. This technology-free vacation was exactly what I needed to reconnect with my family and take my mind off of worldly stress. I left that back at home. There was a cute nature trail and mini-golf course right by the outdoor pool on the cliff overlooking the large bodies of water and surrounding mansions. The sight was breathtaking. I finally had my chance to eat out for almost every meal, trying new varieties like Vietnamese Pho and Japanese California rolls.
