Turkey - Blue Mosque














Hijab // Dress // Jeans

Here we visited the Blue Mosque which was built between 1609 and 1616. It is so surreal to see this Mosque and to think about how advanced architecture was so long ago that they were able to build such a place. sA it was so beautiful inside and out, I can't even describe it! I've seen many large scale Mosques, notably the Sheikh Zyed Mosque in Abu Dhabi built only in 2007, but the Blue Mosque has a different feel due to it's dated history. It's also so surreal to see the Hagia Sophia right across the courtyard, but more pictures of that to follow on another post!

Turkey Part 1

 








My top is from Forever and I just got it a month ago at forever 21, but I can't find it online! I linked a similar one thought which I think is also very cute!

These pictures are from the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. It was one of my favorite sites to see in Istanbul because the museum included many antique items, but most notably articles that belonged to the beloved prophet PBUH. It was so surreal to see all the items used by so many notable figures in Islam. I definitely recommend visiting this museum to anyone who visits Turkey!!

Venice - Fringey Fun













Blazer  // Pants // Similar Hijabs // Purse

It seems like every time I post I'm apologizing for my absence.. To be honest, blogging is so time consuming and I'm not sure that I want to keep up with it as frequently as I first started to (when I was in college and had more time). I plan to be more present on social media and will do my best to update on here more often. 

With that being said, I just got back from vacation and I wanted to share this outfit first because quite a few people messaged me and asked me for the details on Instagram so I figured I should share with everyone. This was one of our days in Venice. The weather was perfect in that it wasn't hot and it wasn't cold, so wearing a blazer was just comfortable. Nothing worse than hot/warm weather as a hijabi!! We made a stop at the Magnum store and made our own ice cream. We did this before at the pop up shop in New York, but it was cool to be able to do it in Venice! Needless to say, there was a lot of ice cream eaten during our time in Italy.. the Gelato was amazing.
