Indonesian Iftar

We are enjoying our time in Dubai. Today is our third day. But we were so tired from yesterday's tour that we barely went out. I took the kids to the hotel pool and they got to go crazy. Even though I was sitting under a parasol, it was so hot on the roof, that I wished I could join them.
Here is what I wore:

Black scarf - Walmart
Sunnies - Daiso
Jellabah - Gift from hubby

I got this dress along with several others as a gift when my husband came back from Mecca last year. The dresses are pretty and comfy but unfortunately I think that only the green one fits me perfectly. I had another one in brown that is a tad short and another one that is way too tight. I think that with a good tailor, the dresses could be altered to fit me. Anyway, I have been wearing the green one around the clock since I arrived in Dubai, particularly to lounge around the hotel room. My hubby also brought his in white and he is wearing them everytime we go out, trying to blend with the local scene.
And tha…

Dubai is Disneyland

This is our second day in Dubai. In the morning, we went to the mall near our hotel called Mall of Emirates. This mall is huge with luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel but also the ones where I usually shop like H&M, and Zara. We walked around the mall without purchasing a thing and later let the kids play in the huge playground called Magic Planet. Inside the mall it was really cool but outside the temperatures reached 48 degrees. I have never experienced such a heat and we were crazy enough to walk around the neighborhood under it.
Thankfully I wore this:

Black scarf - Walmart
Black dolman open cardigan - Shimamura
Maxi dress - Chatujak Market (Bangkok - Thailand)
Shoes - H&M
Accessories - gifted and 777 store in Vivre Yokohama

The dress is super light and airy so I did not feel the heat as much as I would have. But I cannot say the same about the scarf. Yet it kept my head burning from the UV rays. And to think that it could get hotter according to the locals.

Off for a stopover

The family is on its way to Senegal via Dubai. We stopped over this fabulous land for four days. For the trip I wanted to be comfy but a tad sophisticated so here is what I wore:

Scarf - Langkawi night market
Shirtdress - Thrifted
Pants - H&M
Shoes - Thrifted
Bag - Pratunam market

I think that shirtdress are the next big thing for me after maxi dresses. They are so practical and classy. I already own three but I am thinking that adding two more to my closet would not hurt. Plus this one I am wearing is very pretty with the prints. I just wished it did not wrinkle so I could take it on all my future trips.

The accessories: watch, gifted charm bracelet, the bag and...
...the wedges
Our first day in Dubai was ok. We arrived in the early hours of the morning after a long but relaxing flight. We arrived at our hotel appartment which is located in a district called Al Barsha. The room is spacious enough with a living room, kitchen, toilet, and bedroom with bathroom. We all dove in the…


Hello my friends. How are you doing? I am fine but hunger is killing me. Yep, the hunger games have officially started for me on Saturday as it is Ramadan, holiest month of all for Muslims around the world. Ramadan is not only a great time to reflect one one self, one's doing and one's shortcomings, but it is also a time to make more Duas and praise GOD more. However, this month brings other not so good things like starvation, binge eating, bloatedness, tiredness, sleepiness and much more. However, it is just for 30 days or less and all for a good cause so let us bare it all.
Anyway, had to go out today so I wore this:  White scarf - Walmart Cardigan - Old navy Top - Gift from the hubby Pants - Shimamura Shoes - Thrifted
I am wearing all primary colors in this outfit: yellow, green, bag was blue but I forgot to include it in the pic. Actually the outfit was inspired from a pic I saw on Pinterest. I think it was from last year's J Crew collection. Check …
