One Scarf, Four Looks

Hi Everyone! trust that everyone has had a wonderful start to the week. I finally finished off my crit lessons and I have two more weeks left until I go back to campus. (Happy dance). 

In today's post I have this beautiful stripe scarf which is part of my August buys (expect a post soon). The scarf is fairly wide and long enough to provide coverage and volume for your desired looks. 

Below are a few looks I managed to put together: 

The turban-knot
       WHY : Perfect for spicing up a boring outfit, provides the right amount of 'chic'.    

Pretty-Hijaab Wrap

 WHY: I know that a lot of hijaab styles cover the ears and that can be sad if you love ear candy. 
This is the perfect scarf styling technique used to show off your beautiful earings. The draping in front is convenient as you do not need to add a neck scarf. 

The flowy summer scarf
WHY: Scrap the boring turban(the one with the big bun at the back) and opt for a side-flow. For me, this look represents 'DARING'. It captures stepping out of the norm perfectly.   
 The Twister

WHY: Another look which adds 'chic' to your outfit when it's lacking a little BAM!!! This head gear will definitely make people look at you twice as it is something different and FUN!  
Which look would you like to see me do a little tutorial on? 

Don't be shy.

Dressing up & My Eid 2013

One thing that I had no problem doing from a very very young age was to dress up, parading through my moms closet and my own, I would be dressed up everyday and be absolutely stubborn when it was time to remove the stolen clothing so that my sister could bath me. Those were the days!

That was just a little intro into my dressing up stages. Dressing up for Eid is no different! I cannot wait for after lunch time to do my make-up, get dressed and take a few pictures with my family. 

Me & sis/Fiance/Daddy

This year I wanted a 'modest' look. Along with a tailored pants, black body suit, I think that my head gear assisted me in pulling off this look. By the way, this Hijaab look is from  Dina Toki-o. Follow her YouTube channel for beautiful Hijaab styles. 

I am wanting to do a few scarf-styling tutorials or looks for you ladies that would like to make use of your scarves for upcoming spring(birthday month:)).

Have a fantastic week ahead,Keep it productive.
