Floral & Neutrals

Hi lovelies! It's been a while since i've updated this little old blog of mine, but here I am! Thought I'd share with you all today's outfit.

Today was a special day, and thus called for a special outfit. Mind you, nothing I'm wearing is "special", it's just that most of the today's pieces are either favorites of mine, or i've bought over 6 months ago and haven't worn yet :p

Moving on. I am so madly, deeply and completely in love with the bomber jacket I wore! I got it at one of my favorite shops a while ago in the sales, and have been saving it for the summer. It's cotton, so absolutely perfect for the upcoming summer! Luckily, today's weather could have been described as summer. It was hot and sunny during the day, but come 4 o'clock, the clouds gathered and we could tell rain was on its way. Oh well, we can't really expect much at this time of year, a few hours of sun is more than enough for us Dunedinites.




Bomber jacket: Dotti (old)
Black top: unbranded
Skirt: Supre (old, bought in Australia)
Shoes: Wildpair (more than 3 years old though)
Cuff: Lovisa
Bag: Aldo (old)

Hello my lovely readers and friends!
It's been a while, I know. But it's going to be a while longer. 
I haven't been inspired to blog about anything lately, and quite frankly I am enjoying the break.
It's hard to believe it's October already. Feels like just yesterday that I was ringing in the new year with some friends. SubhanAllah!

I hope you've all been keeping well, and hope you all make the most of the remaining 2 1/2 months. 
See you all when I see you.

Something Blue

I absolutely love wearing our traditional Somali dress! The last time I wore one was at my friend's wedding last year, so I jumped at the chance of wearing one to a small party thrown by some students in my town.

I've actually owned this dress for a year now. It was gifted to me by my aunt in Australia, and I fell in love with the color instantly! I don't wear many colors on a daily basis, but these Somali dira's are so colorful and are usually made of silk that I cannot resist them.

A special shoutout goes to Chloe who sewed the different parts of the dress for me!
