Jersey Turban










Vest: H&M // Skirt & Jersey Hijab: Egypt // Heels: Zara

One of my IG followers suggested I try Dina Tokio's turban tutorial vs. the style I normally do, which is a pat of what I did here. I watched a bunch of her videos and then when I actually went to wrap the turban, I think I used a combo of all her different styles. The jersey material definitely had a nice look to it which I loved. Thanks to the follower who recommended it! (I couldn't remember where she commented to get her name)

Engaged









 Cake pops I made for the party. I also helped put together these flower arrangements!
My dress: BCBG // Hijab: Nordstrom

This past May we celebrated my brothers engagement!! Did I fool you into thinking it was my own engagement with the title?? hehe It's always just been my brothers and I, the only girl, so it's kinda crazy that there's another girl in the family now who I can call my sister! Thankfully, I love her sooo much and she fits right in! :) For my look, formal attire is all about fluidity, so when I found this dress at BCBG I fell in love and had to figure out how to make it hijabified... that's when I found the perfect long sleeve shirt for underneath it. The undershirt was also from BCBG which means the color is an exact match since it's the same brand. I was so thrilled and excited!! The party was so much fun  as we got to celebrate with so many family and friends all together at once (250+ ppl!). I made the cake pops pictured above myself which was a lot of work but I was sooo happy with how they turned out. (It was only my second time making them!) I think my brother and sister in law loved them too which made it worth it. :)

Harbor Views


 
 



 
 
 
 
  Hat, Top, Pants: H&M // Shoes: Vince Camuto via Nordstrom Rack // Neck Hijab: Target 

Spent the day in Baltimore and had to hit up my favorite place to eat, Koopers! Koopers is located in Fells Point and has Creekstone halal burgers which I loveeeee. It also doesn't hurt that it's facing the harbor and has great views. The weather was perfect and of course I had to get some outfit shots in my favorite city. I may be biased because I went to college there, but I love Baltimore.

Fine China Print Hijab







Hijab: Austere Attire // Sweatshirt, Necklace & Pants: H&M // Shoes: Zara // Purse: Michael Kors

Sometimes I feel like dressing comfy casual for work, and I pair it with some heels to make it a little more professional (as opposed to sneaking my toms all day).  I love this hijab (and every other hijab I have from Austere Attire of course) named Fine China because it has a beautiful mehndi (henna) style print with blues and slight pink, which is why I paired it with the pink necklace. To dress up the lose fitted pants, I wore fun shiny silver heels. The best part about the heels are that they are mid-height which makes them super comfy for long hours at work.
