(Fall) Weekend Casual

I love this multi-print tunic dress.
It’s perfect for browsing those Saturday yard sales/open markets or taking a Sunday stroll. I’d wear it with wide legged jeans, cardi, flats and a colorful pashmina.

Eid Look 1 : Abaya Inspiration

Abaya is always an elegant choice for Eid. Typically, for Eid, ladies opt for the most elaborate bling, bling abaya. Yet, because we will be celebrating Eid in the United States during the summer I am inspired by lighter styles of abaya this year.

My first choice is this gold, embroidered Faryat abaya from East Essence**:

.

As far as hijab I think it would look great with either a similarly toned gold hijab or a sheer black hijab with gold accents both from Hijab Store Online:

Black IS my favorite color but in order to do it with a softer, summer edge I chose the boho inspired blue embroidery of this Maassama abaya also from East Essence:

You can either play up the color by wearing a bold blue hijab or go for classic elegance with a black sequined hijab:

**Side Note: I think East Essence is one of the best choices for plus size Muslimahs. You can get a custom fit abaya for a reasonable price. When combining the cost of shipping in addition to customization you still end up with a bargain : )
