More buttoned down shirts please!

Fall did not even creep up. It came full blast. One day it was 30 degrees, the next 21. Fall came so fast that I have not had time to take my Winter clothes out of my suitcase (Either I have too much clothes or not enough closet space; nevertheless when season changes, I put away some clothes and take out the ones I need), and dry them under the sun.


Under those circumstances, it becomes quite hard to dress up. As a resort, I go to my button down shirts. And add a cardigan when it is really chilly. They are very easy to put on and style. Plus the cardigan hides the spots that are wrinkled.

I like these leopard flats but they are falling apart. This is the second pair of leopard flats that are failing me. I am for the look out for a great one that would last. Any suggestions?


I wore this to run some errands with the hubby and kids on a bit chilly day. I am not really into wearing all jeans but I did it twice with the same shirts and different pants, and it worked both times. This shirt was really a great buy. I decided that from now one I will switch a bit by pairing it with skirts or even dresses.

The hubby was disturbing my shooting session instead of helping me to take pics

For some reasons I like mixing the shirt and the cardigan. I think this must be the 2nd time I am wearing it. The first was at the beginning of Spring and I got great "reviews" from other mothers at school. Maybe because of the flowers on my cardigans. I do like pink but I do not get to wear it often. This is the boldest I have done when it comes to mixing patterns and colors (the pink of the shirt is light pink almost pastel when the ones on the cardigan are bright pink and fuchsia.

I am really looking forward to Fall and Winter. I have spotted some trends that will make break the bank. And once my shopping ban will be lifted, I may go crazy. Is it also strange that under this weather, I am craving military green shorts?

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

All dressed up to say goodbye to 2017!

2017 is coming to an end.

What a whilrwind this year has been! Everything I knew and valued has been shattered. Everything I ever wanted came true but with a huge price. Yet, I am hoping that it was for the best.

I started doing adult things, some things I never thought I would do or ever want to do again. But so is life. I lost a lot but I gained a lot as well. I learned every single day about life in general, love, family, work ethics, myself. I am getting to know who I am and what I am capable of. I know I am strong, I am resilient. I also know I am older (found out two gray hairs this year) and not as pretty as I used to be. But that is alright. I now think that it is okay to be selfish, to put myself first, to love myself before anyone else. I …
