Hello guys! I’m back with another Outfit Post! CLICK ME to see my other #OOTD blogposts. Just a reminder that this post is not religion related. I put this look altogether based on the things I bought during the Max Fashion Sale a week ago. Max Fashion is one of the leading stores here in Dubai. There is an outlet just downstairs from where i live so I thought I’d drop by and see what they have while they are on sale. I ended up spending a reasonable amount, I guess more than 300aed++ haha yes I’m guilty! But I don’t really shop a lot here in Dubai as I don’t get the chance to go out that much compared to when I was living in Malaysia and attending blogging related events.
Temperatures are beginning to rise as summer approaches in Dubai & temperatures between 40 and 50 can be expected from now until September. A smart girl needs to be prepared and protect herself against the heat and sunlight that pours down on you during this time of the year. In this weather it certainly makes sense to cover up and protect your eyes as well.
When you think Arabian Fashion you might think of the ever present “abaya”, however once you live in Dubai you soon find out that nothing could be further from the truth. Walking around Dubai you will find some of the most beautiful women wearing truly innovative & stylish high end fashion.
Immersing myself in the culture of Dubai … I headed down to Max Fashion to secure a range of outfits that adds style and demonstrate that elegance and conservativeness can coexist to bring a look that would appeal to any modern Dubai woman. For the OOTD look I chose a long sleeve black top, matched with a Bronze/Brown flowing skirt, making a perfect blend if I was against a Desert backdrop and ankle length to give it that conservative look.
Some form of head cover is required in this environment and after being here for a few months I now realise that the Middle Eastern head cover is not only to protect the modesty of the beautiful Middle Eastern ladies but it really is an absolute necessity to protect your skin against the harsh desert heat and sun. I chose a light coloured scarf with s simple design that wraps around your face and gives a classic look and added the sunglasses to complete the look.
I have been living in Dubai for six months now and so far loving it. I’ve been so inspired to come up with a look like this, Can you imagine how a simple scarf or sarong or simple fabric can give you that ultimate glam look. It gives life to your not so alive look LOL. I’ve been watching how to tie head scarfs a lot lately. I learned a few techniques already and try to remember each of them and make sure I won’t be needing a pin for it so next time I can glam myself in just a Minute!

Thanks to my husband for taking all the time to take all my photos and videos. He’s been busy working but still find time to help me and be creative himself for that perfect shots which I appreciate a lot. He’s been very supportive with my blogging like forever and I’m so thankful for that coz I love blogging, and sharing things to everyone!
I’m guilty that I posted too many photos for this #ootd which usually I only post around 5-6 shots. Its just that i can’t resist to put everything If i can, All the shots were amazing, Guess I have to admit that my husband is a much better photographer than me haha I just need to learn how to pose more naturally and go with the flow of how I feel with the outfit.
