Good evening ladies ✨ hope you all have had a lovely Friday. Just stoping by to share a hot tip with ya. Ive been obsessed with long sleeved maxi dresses lately. I feel like if it has a loose fit it is just the same as an abaya, and are easer to get a hold of here in the west at least. Anyways, I found this lovely piece in my favorite online store, boohoo, and how gorgeous? Looking forward to styling it with a pear of sneakers, or heels for that matter. I just got it yesterday and i noticed its a bit slim fit, I’m happy I ordered a size M but regretted not ordering a size L. You can shop the dress here (adlink) ladies!
A question I get asked a lot is how I stay strong wearing my hijab in a western country, and how I don’t get affected by societies beauty ideals. The truth is, I’m like everyone else, I have really bad hijab days (more than I actually have good ones), and I used to be very aware of how i looked and dressed before I wore the hijab which made it harder in the beginning. I was always very fashion forward and wore makeup everyday, so the change I made was very drastic and took many years for me to get comfortable in. What I have noticed lately however is that whenever I feel bad in my hijab, I try dress up and have a girls night in and helps a lot! Just that feeling of doing your hair and makeup, dressing up in pretty outfits and hanging out in an off-hijab mode helps you boots that confident and gives that feeling of being ”like everyone else”, and that has helped me a lot during the tough days. Another thing is taking care of yourself, especially if you are married or you have kids. One tend to never priorities oneself and thats the worst trap ever. Go to the hairdressers, or the gym, buy that trendy midi-dress you want, or those ripped jeans, and were them at home and be flawless. Do your hair and makeup and just be yourself, for yourself. It’s important to feel that you are yourself once you are in the right off-hijab environment, otherwise that voice telling you that you look ugly in your hijab is going to take over your brain. Ultimately we wear our hijab to please Allah and because we are obligated to. It’s and act of obedient and worship, and it would be such a shame to wast the beauty of that deed by going around hating it or hating yourself because of it.
What do you girls do when you have week moments in your hijab? Do you have any thoughts or trix to motivate yourselves?
Good morning lovelies! Hope you are having a good start to your day so far! I just wanted to share an outfit I had on the other day. It’s one of my favorite items in my closet (beside my plain black abayas of course) and its a dress I get asked a lot about. I mean look at it, its striped, its black and white and it’s trumpet sleeved. It’s that kind of dress you can wear to a party or an evening event with a pare of heels or to work/school with a pare of converse. It’s definitely a ”go-to dress” in my closet. You can find the dress here (adlink) ladies!
P.s I got a request from one of you lovely readers to do a ”closet essentials for the modest fashionista” post, and your wish is my command. I will be working on that post as soon as possible. 💕
