Eid Mubarak everyone! Taqqaballahu minna wa minkum! May Allah accept from me and you.
I hope you had an enjoyable Eid. It was a great Eid weekend for us Alhamdulillah. As usual, lots of food and lots of family visits. I managed to only get a quick snap of one of my Eid outfits. As it’s summer I went with something semi casual, colourful and lightweight.
Hijab: Vela Scarves
Lace Cardigan: Hayah Collection
Taqqabballahu minna wa minkum. May Allah accept from us all! I hope you all had a wonderful Eid. And please remember to still keep those who are being oppressed around the world in your prayers.
Baby T’s first Eid ul Fitr.
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!).
- 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.

This is how I wore it to my graduation a couple years ago:

So all the last- minute studying and assignment completions finally reaps some rewards. I’m a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to doing my school work, but I do get it done on time, and it’s good work too (if I do say so myself 😀 )
Last night I attended our college’s annual student awards night. It was an evening dedicated for presenting the top students of the college with various awards and recognitions. I was honoured to be among the recipients, Alhamdulillah.
