I’m So Excited!!!

About the fabulous My Hijab Plus and Hijabi and the City who are representing for us +plus+ Muslimahs!

These two Aussie sisters are beautiful (Masha’Allah) and showing us that all it takes is a lil’ courage and style to make it work!

I actually have read Houda’s blogs off and on for a few years; but, I was so happy to return to her site and see that she is now doing fashion blogging and inspiring us with some of her ootd (outfits of the day). Check her out styling a basic black maxi to make it suitable for Ramadan taraweeh prayers.


(Isn’t that pink bow necklace against her hijab simply gorgeous!)

Love this cropped mustard jacket

I also adore the sophisticated and bold looks of Edibe of Hijabi and the City

This girl can WORK a hijab!

These sisters are really giving soooo much fashion inspiration so check them out!
