Light & Airy

There is something so peaceful & beautiful about this caftan from Eshakti. The ginko leaf embroidery gives it rich detail. I think it’s perfect for a cool summer evening spent relaxing on the patio or taking an evening stroll.

Where to shop: Ayaso Boutique

Behold the gorgeousness that is Ayaso Boutique. Ayaso is a Facebook run online boutique specializing in beautiful caftans and abaya. While in certain countries, this style of dress is considered indoor wear, I think one of these elegant pieces would make a stunning statement for an evening out or formal affair. Most of these come with an adjustable belt, thus offering a wide range of sizes.

WHICH ONES ARE YOUR FAVORITES??

Anna Scholz @ La Grande Dame

I try not to subscribe to the rules. You know the ones specific for the larger woman. Don’t wear prints, stripes or patterns. Don’t be too colorful. Wear black constantly. Black is great but but breaking the rules can be awesome.

That is exactly why I love these two pieces by Anna Scholz available at La Grande Dame.

The first is a long, belted, striped cardigan. I would wear it with dark-wash jeans and a soft pashmina.

($99.99)

The second piece is a cotton – cashmere, color block wrap dress. For coverage I would either wear it with a light layering tee or a turtleneck.

($99.99)

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 : )

Modest Find: Tie Dye Maxi Skirt

I adore this tie dye maxi skirt from Evans.

I think it would be great paired with a black tank, jean jacket, burgundy scarf for color, peep toe black wedges (love those!) and a flash of silver bangles. How would you style it?
