Featured Friday: Khadijah

This week's Featured Friday is the GORGGGEOUS Khadijah. She is 23 and graduated with a degree in business management and is currently working full time. She loves fashion and makeup and uses her fashion as a game to play with many different looks. She has a sense of style that I just can't get enough of mA. Her bold color combinations and fierce style always has a hollywood celebrity style end result.

OOTD: Summery Top

Great Hijabi shirt alert!! I just bought this shirt from target in two colors. I love that they're long and light, perfect for summer! Target has it in many different colors and prints and they're fairly prices at about $23. I paired it with my favorite wide leg pants and a little cheetah print. Even though I fit into the a small at target, for this shirt I got a medium because I like the flowy look.

OOTD: Two Print Maxi

Happy Friday everyone, Jummah Mubarak! It's been quite the week for me! I've transferred to a new group for the next few months at work and have been swamped with projects! On the bright side, it's a great feeling that even when I leave the office late there's still sunlight outside! Anyways, here is what I wore to work today. I must give credit to my fashionista friend Riham who I saw this dress on first. She wore it with a jean jacket which is very cute and casual for the weekend. Since I was wearing this to work, I paired it with a cardigan to make it a bit more professional. 
I bought both the dress and cardigan at Gap Outlet for a steal! The cardigan was $10 and the dress was half off for $35. Regular Gap can be overpriced in my opinion so I always shop at the outlet store and I'm never let down!

Forever 21 Must Haves

These are some of the things I'm loving at Forever 21 right now! These are mostly dresses that can be  made hijabi friendly by adding a cardigan or long sleeve shirt underneath. The colors are also summery inspired which I love.

OOTD: Mix 'n Match

Usually I'm all about perfectly matching and not getting too crazy with the combo of colors and prints I wear, but today I thought I'd switch it up. I paired bright pink pants with a polka dot peplum top which I would usually match with a black cardigan or blazer but today I paired it with a long grey blazer and I love the combo of colors.

OOTD: Electric Blue

Jummah Mubarak everyone, happy Friday! Now that Summer-y weather is among us, I'm beginning to shift my wardrobe into brighter colors. I recently got these electric blue pants from Forever 21 and I love the fit and they are comfortable for work.  I paired it with a white button up which you can't see in the picture but its similar to a 'hi-low' shirt where the back is a bit longer than the front so it's very hijabi friendly!

Featured Friday: Papiya

This weeks featured Friday is the adorable Papiya from the UK! She loves experimenting with fashion by buying things that are different and stand out. She is also big on accessorizing which is something I LOVE!! I love Papiya's style because she is great at keep things different and fun but simple and elegant at the same time.

OOTD: Mustard Pencil Skirt

I've had a few people ask me about the tights I wear with my skirts on instagram so I thought I'd share with everyone here as well. I'm always on the lookout for dark black tights that aren't see through and I finally found a brand that I love! The brand is called "hue" and I bought them from Nordstrom Rack for around $8. These are my favorite because they are really dark and I always buy my tights one size bigger so that when I sit they don't stretch and become see through.
