Dresses: a 9-month uniform!

Dresses dresses dresses.. all I can say is that they are every pregnant woman’s daily outfit! I’m not going to lie, I miss wearing pants and there are a lot of maternity pants out there, but who am I kidding? There is nothing more comfy than wearing a dress..especially in this heat! 😅

As a pregnant woman I’m happy that this is a season for dresses! Summer is all about colors and prints 🤗

and I found this pretty green dress (side note: don’t you think it’s so hard to find a nice green piece?! I love this color but I have to search a lot to find a green dress or top!) Back to my dress 😬 I found it in the non-maternity section which is absolutely fine. I’ve been wearing regular dresses but I just get them a size bigger.. sometimes much bigger just to fit the baby bump haha.. point is if you are pregnant you don’t really have to stick with maternity clothes while shopping!

Now tell me, what’s your summer go-to outfit?!

The weather now is extremely hot here in the UAE, and till now I don’t know how I wore this long sleeve dress! But to be honest the fabric is so soft and it’s the kind of fabric that cools you down if you know what I mean😊

What I loved the most about this dress is the floral print!! I’ve always loved this print and it’s one that stays on trend and just perfect for the summer.

Ramadan looks

Hello my lovely readers!

Its been awhile since my last blog post, but you know it’s Ramadan now and I don’t know how time flies by so quickly! Plus to be honest I was feeling a bit sick with the pregnancy but now I’m feeling much better el hamdullelah. So, before Ramadan ends, I’m sharing with you my favorite looks from this month:
First one is this beautiful Kaftan by the amazing designer Saher Dia. What I loved the most about it is how it looks simple yet very elegant.

My 2nd favorite look is this stunning abaya designed by a very close and talented friend: Soha. When Soha sent me her “Sohamt” look book, I immediately chose this abaya! I fell in love with the color, the gorgeous details and the fabric!

My 3rd favorite look is this layered dress all the way from Kuwait!! I found this Instagram account @f.instyle and I literally loved everything on her page! Such a creative designer- worth checking out!

Shades of Love

 

img_7103_facetune_24-04-2018-13-52-02

As a child I wasn’t a big fan of the color pink. I always felt it was too girlie (as if I wasn’t a girl haha)! But with time I started to fall in love with the color and felt that it represented so many meaningful values like: feminism, love, hope, sweetness.. and many other things!

For today’s look, I chose to wear different shades of pink and I accessorized it with a simple touch of red! So I can call this outfit: Shades of love.
I immediately fell in love with this one shoulder top, and what better way to style this kind of top than adding some long earrings?!

img_7096_facetune_24-04-2018-13-49-56

img_7094_facetune_24-04-2018-13-47-52

A simple pair of high waist pants with pumps and the outfit is complete and to be honest it ended up being one of my favorite looks so far from this year.

What is your favorite color? And what do you think of the trend combining a whole outfit from the same color (maybe different shades)?

Mules obsession

I always cared about choosing the right slippers and mules, because they have to be comfy! Like extra comfy! Then what’s the point of wearing flats and not heels?! It’s kinda hard to find slippers that are pretty and comfy at the same time. But I found this French brand “Line Loup” that designs the most comfortable and chic interior slippers and mules! When I checked their website, I didn’t know which ones to choose but I ended up choosing the Cavaliere Bordeaux mules. I fell in love with the color and the velvet fabric.

The moment I tried them on, I didn’t want to take them off! I can honestly wear these mules every day! They are so pretty, and they would go with any outfit! They are beyond comfortable, and plus let’s not forget mules are so trendy now!

100% handmade slippers and mules made in Italy, and you can also customize your own pair just the way you want. Check out their website HERE and let me know which one is your favorite!

With love

Wedding day

Hello my loves!

It’s been a long time since my last blog post! I missed you all and I missed sharing my diaries with you. I can’t believe we are in March already, I feel like I ​just got married yesterday! I started 2018​ with lots of love and laughs. I got married to the person I can finally call my best friend and the love of my life. ​As I started a new life​, ​it came with it new responsibilities and priorities ​and it took ​me some time to organize everything. And that’s why I’ve been a way for a while 🤗 but now I’m back! ​Today, I’m so happy to share with you some of the highlights of my special day, and I hope you like it!

 For the wedding dress, it took me a while till I found and designed the “IT dress”. I visited many wedding ​stores in the UAE,​ and everything I found was either too simple, or too extra for me  or above my budget. And you know you can’t just order your wedding dress online! You have to try it; what if it needs alteration? What if the quality is not like what you expected?! Do you get me? After a lot of searching, finally a good friend of mine​ introduced me to the talented designer Marmar Halim;​ who from the first time we met, had the sketch of my wedding dress done! And I can’t express how happy I was with the results, the details and the quality of the dress.

For the hair and makeup, I decided to keep it simple. Just how I usually look, but of course with some extra touches!

​If you are getting married soon, my only advice to you is to enjoy every moment, and just have fun preparing your wedding! Because we ladies all have been waiting for our special day, so we might as well make it memorable and enjoyable.

From Miss to Mrs

This weekend will forever be one of the most memorable highlights I’ve ever had and the reason being is that I got to celebrate my last day of being single with my favorite ladies at an amazing isolated getaway at the desert Palm Resort and Hotel in Dubai.

We stayed at the pool residence two bedroom villa and threw a beautiful retro themed bridal shower outdoors by our private pool. Their food was absolutely delicious, the villa was immensely spacious and their staff were even more accommodating than usual.
Most of you know that I don’t really like going over board when it comes to outfits and dressing up for occasions so I decided to go with a simple outfit wearing a pair of black leggings and an oversized white shirt with a retro hairdo and a red rose.. because it’s a special day 🙊

We started the day off with fun bachelorette games, having so much food OFCOURSE, delicious cake, popped bubbly, and most importantly ended it by dancing the night away!

I have to say my girls were absolutely amazing, they really made my day so memorable and I can’t thank them enough for such a fun day filled with love, laughter, and dancing! I couldn’t have asked for more ❤
