Simple Fridays {OOTD}

So like 2015 is just less than an hour away and I thought I’d do a quick OOTD post while I’m here and waiting for the new year to arrive.

These images were actually captured a while ago but being the lazy me that I am, I never uploaded them. This is just my basic Friday look – I don’t wear abayas/cloaks, so maxi skirts are my go to for a Friday.

I paired this tailor-made dotted skirt with a plain slouchy tee and a printed scarf. My bracelet features a quirky pair of handcuffs, the statement necklace is hidden under my scarf (OOPS!) and my shoes is a pair of gold D’Orsay pumps. The bag is an oversized tote which is quite versatile – perfect for the beach, shopping or even as a laptop bag. And the sunnies is a pair from Birlin Eyewear which you guys have seen before!

Just a simple OOTD post for normal days😄

3 chic and easy outfits for a perfect Summer’s day

 

 

 

Amazing picture that I took at North Beach in Durban. Beautiful.

In my family, we rarely ever plan anything, unless it’s a wedding – of course!  Every outing, picnic or trip to the beach is usually a spontaneous decision, made an hour before we leave home. That gives me only an hour to do my makeup and pick out an outfit and fab accessories and a hijab – it’s totes ridic, I know! But I love summer and spending time with my fam, therefore I created 3 go-to outfits that are chic, easy and hijab appropriate and that won’t leave me dressing up in the car, due to time constraints.

 

 

Look 1: Beach Chic

 

Dress: Mr Price; Necklace: Orelia, Forever New; Sandals: Woolworths; Chambray Shirt:; Woolworths; Stila Lippie: Truworths

I love maxi dresses. These dresses transition great from day to night, with a simple swop of accessories which make them a great investment. This look is perfect for a day at beach, chilling in the sand and maybe even going for a little leg-dip in the water.

Throwing a denim shirt over a maxi dress is brilliant, especially if you burn quite easily in the sun. Due to it being a day at the beach, I like to keep accessories to a minimum – we don’t want to blind anyone with our bling, now do we?

 

 

Look 2: Picnicking at the Park

I love the park, playing on the swings, engaging in an informal game of cricket/soccer and enjoying a yummy hotdog whilst chilling on a camping chair – yup, that’s how we do it.

During picnics, because of all the activities you are involved in, you want to make sure that you are fully covered and that all chances of flashing someone, is eliminated .That’s why a pair of skinnies is perfect. Choose one that’s pretty and has a bit of whimsy to it, like this one, with all the polka dots – so cute!  Pair your bottoms with a plain, white top whilst adding some colour to your look with a nifty bag and cute shoes.

 

 

Look 3: Crop-top heaven

 

Top: Mr Price; Skirt: Mr price; Sandal: Mr Price; Chain: Woolworths; Bracelets: Mr price

This outfit is great for any type of activity, be it shopping, beaching or even a visit to your nearest Wakaberry.

Crop tops seems to be all the rage recently, you can wear it by pairing it with a high-waisted maxi skirt and a gold statement necklace– you are still showing off the crop top but without showing any skin, total hijabness! Add on a bunch of gold-toned bracelets and cute sandals to take the look to the next level.

 

 

Hope you are having a great summer!
