Outfit planner: Krabi

If you follow me on Instagram,  you know that I have been in Krabi in the last couple of days. We took advantage of the kids Easter holidays to go to Thailand in the Krabi province. And it is absolutely lovely. But more on that in the upcoming posts.

For today's post will deal solely with what I packed.

This time around I decided not to purchase anything new except for a few things that I had to have like mirrored sunglasses, a striped tee and a knit Grey skirt. I scored the sunglasses but was stingy to purchase a Zara striped tee (why are those things so pricey?!?!). The maxi skirt was discounted, in my size but not in the right Grey but I passed it on for new shoes, thinking that it will be there the following week. Big mistake: when I returned to the store, it was gone.

Anyway for this holiday, I packed:

- jeans ( not pictured)
- palazzo pants
- pink maxi skirt
- white eyelet tunic
- tie dye sleeveless dress shirt
- tropical print tunic
- tropical print maxi dress ( not pictured)
- cropped jacket
- camo print maxi dress
- studded tee ( not pictured)
- underwear ( white tee, tank tops, black slip...)
- bathing suit ( not pictured)
- tan and black sandals
- beaded sandals ( not pictured)
- tan wedges ( not pictured)
- blue and white weaved tote bag
- sunhat
- sunglasses

Sunhat, sunglasses and a good book

Too much?  I think it is just enough. The camo dress was a last minute addition. I wore it to lunch just before leaving and I did not want to change for the jeans and tie dye dress I originally planned on wearing. Reason why instead of the flats I usually wear on planes, I wore tan wedges because the dress is too long.
Being in Krabi though, I feel overdressed. Every tourist is roaming around half naked with bathing suits, sarongs, mini dresses, sheer Kaftan and short shorts. It is a bit annoying at first but I got used to it. And I am always happy to stand out and overjoyed when I see my other modest sisters. After all Krabi has a Muslim population.
Stay tuned for posts on our days in Krabi plus how I wore all the clothes I took. In the meantime, check me on Instagram.

A la Camerounaise

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…
