Vela Scarves

Black on white, white on black

It takes me forever to get dressed now…partly due to the ‘selecting the outfit’ phase!  I’ve attributed this to a few factors:

  • weight gain due to pregnancy
    • I’ve lost half of my pregnancy weight and haven’t really bought any new clothes aside from the occasional cardigan and blouse. As a result, my wardrobe seems very limited (and snug!).
  • breastfeeding
    • the limited clothing choices I have is reduced even more to those items that I can  comfortably nurse in.

And to make matters more trying are the multiple weddings we’ve attended in the past couple weeks.  I refuse to buy or sew new outfits for every event so I’ve had to come up with creative ways to wear pieces that I already own. The dress below was first worn to my graduation and then later to a family event.  Both times I wore it with a shirt under for a semi-casual look but for a wedding I wanted something more formal so I wore a black blazer over. I added a few bling pieces for some sparkle as well.

It’s indeed a good Friday…

Jummah Mubarak dearies!  Today was a wonderful Friday as it’s a public holiday in Canada – Good Friday.  It was nice to go to Jummah with the hubs and visit our families.  Today was also the last ‘distraction day’ I’ll have before the next two weeks of  assignment deadlines and final exams cramp my life 😦  Anywho, here’s my somewhat Spring-like outfit for our somewhat Spring-like weather.

Outfit consists of:

Hijab: Vela Scarves

Maxi Dress: Forever 21

Undershirt: Gap

Flats: Old Navy

Bag: Guess

Cuff: Soon to be available at Bahiya Collections
