Hello and Salaams to all my lovely readers!
So it wasn’t my plan to do an OOTD post at the start of Ramadaan but it sort off just happened, so I hope you enjoy this one!
For this OOTD post, I wanted to feature items that are versatile and basic and that can be dressed up or down – basically, items that will go with any and everything in your wardrobe!
So the maxi cardi was sent to me by the lovely Aadilah Tootla (you can find her on Instagram here), an amazing designer and blogger too! The cardi is one of the latest design additions to her label, Zaynah Mod Wear (you can find them on Instagram here) and is available in pink and brown and in sizes XS-XXL.
What I like about it, is the fact that it’s easy to wear. It can be thrown over an abaya or dress or worn with a pair of jeans or leggings – there is no hard and fast rule, anything goes! It will make a great addition to your wardrobe, especially for Ramadaan!
To maintain my modesty whilst still remaining trendy, I opted for a t-shirt dress rather than just a plain basic tee. The t-shirt dress provided a loose fit all round, unlike that of a basic tee.
And well a maxi skirt and a pair of D’orsay pumps are always a great choice!
The darker shade of the pumps, the tee and the skirt anchored the look and kept everything in balance.
For my accessories, I went really basic with just a statement necklace, a quilted messenger bag and 2 skinny bangles. These added just enough of the extra oomph needed to complete look!
All of the items featured can be worn alone or with others, and are a definite must-haves!
And oh yes, Ramadaan Mubarak lovelies! Remember to take advantage of all the opportunities in this holy month to be a better friend, sister, mother, wife and muslim!
