OOTD | 1 Dress 4 Ways

I bought this abaya from the market (which is more like a jersey maxi dress, when compared to traditional abaya's). I haven't worn it that much but because of the beige/ mocha colour it's really versatile to wear with lots of different colours and in different ways. So when i have worn it, I've been able to make a completely different outfit out of it each time (=


In this picture the flash has made the abaya/dress look grey, I have worn it with a greyish colour viscose scarf and a pair of sunglasses. Simple and not too many layers so it's great for a bit of sunshine.


Because the abaya/dress is made of jersey and is so flowy, it tends to drag down, therefore ends up being a bit too long and gives me trouble when I'm walking, so I pulled it up and wore it with a belt. In this outfit I wore it with a dark brown belt from thepoplook.com, a cardigan and zebra/cheetah print viscose scarf with hints of teal blue running through it.



This outfit is pretty similar to the last one because it's the same abaya/dress and cardigan, but this time I have paired it with a braided belt (again from thepoplook.com) and have tied it into a bow, I've also worn a floral crinkle scarf from hijab fashion shop and wrapped my hijab in a side swept, Spanish/side knot style.


I tend not to wear belts without a cardi or jacket on top when I'm outside but in this outfit I have worn the same dark brown belt from thepoplook.com and a simple emerald green jersey scarf from Inayah collection. I would probably wear it like this minus a cardi/jacket when I go to a family lunch or something

When I first thought of it I didn't imagine emerald green and this mocha colour working well together but after trying it I think they do go very nicely.

I wore a brown jacket on top of this outfit and when I buttoned up the abaya/dress looked like a long flowey maxi skirt (which, unfortunately, I don't have a full length picture of)


So that's it one abaya/dress in 4/5 ways, and these are not the only ways I can think of, I imagine one could even make it into an evening gown by adding some jewellery and a nice sheen scarf. The possibilities are endless and I'll have fun switching it up.

I hope you enjoyed this spur of the moment random post and inshaAllah if I can I shall try and do another one with a plain black abaya (=

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i
