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 ❤

On that note, it’s time to get back to my wedding preps so I’ll see you all after the big day!

Love always..

Red is the new black

img_7831

I’ve shared recently on my Instagram stories about the red trend and how it became the “IT” color for this season! Red on red, red on white, red on pink! And they all look good together, again as I mentioned on the previous blog post that I’m loving how we don’t have limits in combining colors together or in expressing and creating our own style.img_7834_facetune_30.10.2017-12:19:10

So here I am at Dubai Fashion Forward styling my “IT” oversized blazer with a floral red dress, and just to add a touch to this outfit I added my new “favorite” white boots that I’m telling you from now; you will be seeing me wearing them over and over again this season! I know I know, the weather here in the UAE is not a coat or boots weather, but come on! What is winter without coats and boots? And a cup of hot chocolate 🙂  yup I think I watch a lot of Christmas movies!

The art of fashion

IMG_6673.JPG
I usually love to mix my outfits: chic and casual, sporty with a touch of class! It’s always nice to be stylish while being comfortable.
I love that lately we started seeing more people wearing sneakers with suits, dresses, and skirts! I’m not saying it just started happening, but in the past couple of years people have become more open to the idea of mix and match.

IMG_6666
I’m going to talk about myself and say that I used to think that sneakers and kicks are made only for sporty and very casual looks. And that’s why I love fashion and how creative people and streetstyle looks could be. There are no rules in fashion! There are actually zero rules, because each one of us has their own style, own touch and own personality that reflects on their style!

IMG_6675
Don’t listen to anyone who says that only a number of colors could be paired together and look right, or that skirts/dresses only go along with heels, or you can’t mix gold and silver, or you can’t mix different prints together! No! The beauty of it is that we now see people wearing completely different colors together and combine them in a very beautiful way, mixing two or more prints together and making them look just amazing! Please don’t limit yourself to one style, and never be afraid to try new things! Fashion is an art, and you should never limit an artist from creating and inspiring others

I know it’s been awhile since my last blog post but I’ve been so busy with planning my wedding and trying to find “the perfect” wedding dress. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be this hard choosing a specific design with so many amazing dress ideas around and please note that the wedding is only three months away with so much left to plan and I find myself forced to put the Bridezella mode ON to actually get things done 😱 Yeah I’m not stressed at all.. haha But I have to say that I’m truly enjoying every second of it and I really do miss you all and I miss sharing my diaries with you!

Now back to the blog post, finally sharing with you this beautiful and comfy set that I’m totally in love with, and can’t get myself to stop wearing.

IMG_4385

I chose to style it with my favorite louboutin heels that I almost wear with everything! Seriously though, to me those nude pumps are the easiest to pair with anything. And let’s face it nude colors will always be my favorite🤗

Side note, I just read the top half of my blog post and realized that I’ve officially become a bridezella complainer and didn’t think I’d ever be one but on the bright side I haven’t yet (and let’s just hope it stays that way) started annoying people, or at least they haven’t yet complained about me!
Until next time..

Mini staycation

FullSizeRender

Last weekend was a much needed staycation at the Four Seasons resort at jumeirah and to be honest I didn’t want to leave!
I’m going to start this post by explaining why I decided to go on my getaway and fell in love with this hotel. I was supposed to travel on a short vacay but unfortunately had some complications with some of my plans and decided to stay instead. I had to ofcourse compensate and immediately thought of a small vacation somewhere around the U.A.E.

I wanted to stay at a nice resort with a great beach view (you all should know by now my everlasting love for the beach) and the four seasons jumeirah was exactly what I was looking for! A huge luxury hotel with amazing service, stunning beach, and don’t get me started on their spa facilities!!

I couldn’t get myself to stop photo-shooting around the hotel! I had the perfect greenery layouts, the stunning beach views, the Arabic vintage details, and of course the gorgeous never ending pathways.

Gingham

Facetune_2

Lately, the gingham trend is on everyone’s current obsession list and why not?!
I remember when the only gingham we wore were black and white and that’s it. But now we have all the colors rocking the gingham style..

I see gingham dresses, pants, scarves and skirts, and all I want is to try them in different styles from vintage to retro. So you can imagine how easy it was for me to fall in love with this skirt, and those ruffles details that had me feeling like I’m strutting the Spanish streets.

I had a couple of ideas on how to style my skirt, but for this I decided to go with a simple white tee and my see through glass heels for a casual sunny day.

One thing I currently need is to find a yellow gingham dress.. Share below if you locate any 💛💛

The cold shoulder blazer

Dana_FivePalm-4

I am a big fan of blazers, not necessarily for work but I actually love styling them on different looks! I found this classy suit at Michael Kors, a cold shoulder blazer with a cropped straight leg pants.
Dana_FivePalm-10
The moment I tried them on, I was officially obsessed! They give off the “please.. you can’t walk with me” vibe but in a nice way (like there’s ever a nice way of saying that hahaha) but you know what I mean!

And to finish it off with a chic touch, I added a leather bag and my new Christian Dior babies!

Dana_FivePalm-5

Those shoes have been on my shopping list since I saw them on the runway show! I didn’t know which color to choose, but with me being a huge fan of nude colors, it was so obvious.. because they really do work with LITERALLY everything!
