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.

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 😘

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.

Chew-Ha Ha Ha

Self, Thoughts

Dallas-area mom,Candace Payne, just wanted to show her few hundred Facebook friends her new toy. She went into Kohl’s last Thursday, looking for a pair of yoga pants, but somehow reached the toy section and found the adorable growling Chewbacca mask she ended up buying. Unable to contain her enthusiasm, Payne decided to video herself unpacking the toy in her car and broke the internet with her hysterically animated laugh. Her Facebook video went viral overnight, gaining more than 100 million views and hundreds of thousands of new Facebook followers. Payne even broke the record of Buzzfeed’s watermelon video!  Currently, the video has more than a shocking 2 billion views. Catch her on Good Morning America as she tells her story and wins several other Star Wars toys. Stay happy and find joy in the little things. They add up, I promise.

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 😀

Take a peek at what Jenn has to show off!
