Krabi and Bangkok: what I wore

Hello everyone!

I will keep on bothering you with all Krabi (and Bangkok) related things on my blog for a while so bear with me. Today I am showing you almost all the outfits I wore during my stay.  If you read my post Krabi outfit planner , you know that I packed a little. Furthermore, I went for relaxed and flowy clothes, because for me comfort is key. I styled them like this:

I wore my palazzo pants a lot during my trip. It was paired with the eyelet tunic and tropical printed tunic the most. But I managed to wear it with a tee and cocoon cardigan as well.

Sunglasses and scarf -  M. G. road
Tunic -  Cupid in Koregaon Park


Cocoon cardigan -  Shimamura Japan 
Studded tee -  Brandmart 
Bag -  Dili haat
Sandals -  Reliance footprint 

My second best worn item was the tropical maxi dress. I paired it with a white tee most of the time. I even wore it to take a dip in Railay beach. I left my swimsuit at the hotel thinking that I would just read a book and nap. But upon arrival the water looked so good I could not resist. 
This dress would have been perfect if it didn't wrinkle but I did not let that bother me too much. 


Scarf -  probably Big Bazaar
White tee -  Shimamura Japan 
Dress -  thrifted from 390 mart Japan 

In Krabi,  I also enjoyed my  Indian maxi skirt that is fuchsia, a color I love. Upon packing I realized that I did not have many vibrant colors. So I chose this skirt instead of my darker maxi skirts. I paired it with the eyelet tunic and the studded tee.

In Bangkok, I wore just two outfits: the tropical print tunic with the palazzo pants and a brown scarf. It was perfect to go shopping in the markets under the humidity. 


And the tie dye dress that I love so much.


Scarf - gift from Ethiopia
Tie Dye dress - And
Jeans - gift
Beaded sandals - gift

For the trip:
Cropped jacket - Walmart and refashioned
Camo print maxi dress - Enclothe in Koregaon Park 

I rarely wear maxi dresses for trips but I have to admit that they are very comfortable. But this one is so long I had to wear wedges. Plus I had to hold it while walking in the airport. I am not into travelling with heels (even wedges) so I packed my tan sandals in my carry-on in case I was to be bothered. And I did switch them up before boarding. 

So what do you think? What is you vacation wear? Please do share? Your comments are always appreciated.

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 …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
