OOTD: An Arabian Theme Outfit

Hey peeps. Another day, another outfit post. I promised this year would be a year of outfit posts on Fashion and Style Police, and so far, I am keeping to that promise. Say hello to the second outfit post of the year – An Arabian Theme Outfit.

I got this lovely kaftan in the Gold Souk (market) in Dubai some weeks ago, and I really like it. I wore this outfit to a birthday party the other day, and it felt good to stand out. I was as colourful as the venue; it was a play center in Essex.

I remember braving the cold for a few minutes to get this photos taken. It was freezing cold on that day with the fog and all, so I had to wear sensible shoes, and my gold old sneakers came to the rescue. I am not one to just take photos for the blog. What you see me rocking on here, is how I was dressed for the entire day.

I like my kaftans short. The long designs swallow my petite frame up most of the time, so I like to go for this length. I find them comfy and stylish.

I remember going round the Dubai market with my sister, in search of the right kaftans. Most of the designs out there were longer than I wanted, so it took me some time to find the styles I wanted.

It is all in the details for this beauty right here. I like the attention to the details on the kaftan. It stands out and I can see a lot of work went into it. I love it.

OOTD: A Beaded Black Dress

Hey peoples, how are we? I am starting to feel slightly human now (been down with a flu), and slowly getting back to work, which is amazing. I hardly fall ill, I can’t remember the last time I have felt this way. So this experience has made me appreciate the little things in life, which is great.

I took these outfit shots on New Year’s Day. The weather was freezing cold but clear so it was a good day for photos.

I am finally back into the outfit mood now which is great. I kind of lost my mojo towards the end of last year for some weird reason. So it feels good to be back in the game. I have a few outfit posts lined up for the next few weeks and I can’t wait to show them off.

I found this outfit perfect for New Year’s Day. The MARYANA Black Beaded Caplet dress is a delicate beauty. It is more than a little black dress. The beaded detail takes the dress to a whole new level. It is currently one of my favourite dresses.

I also found it super easy to style with a pair of boots, tights and blazer. All the pieces and accessories fell into place easily.

I think every woman should have at least 3 pairs of black dresses in her wardrobe for each season. They come in so handy. Little black dresses are super easy to style and they usually look great. It makes sense to have them in different styles and designs to help create different looks.

OOTD: A Digital Nomad

Long time no outfit post right? Yes I know. I kind of lost my outfit post mojo some weeks ago but I think I have found it now. I have been so busy in the last couple of weeks, so outfit posts have been the last thing on my mind (sorry fashionistas) but I found style inspiration from somewhere a few days ago and shot some outfit photos. So brace yourselves, I think I am back in the game!

This outfit post is centred around this stunning brown KNOMO bag. I came across this Audley Slim Leather Bag by Knomo some days ago and I was blown away by the amount of space in it and how light weight it was (0.88kg). Most similar bags with a lot of compartments tend to weigh a lot more than this so it was love at first sight as soon as I carried it.

In this bag, I can conveniently carry my laptop, iPad, Kindle, phones, notepad, pens, wallet and other bits easily. It has so much space but in a slim compact design which is brilliant. I can see myself using this chic bag a lot. It oozes sophistication and understated style. It is so stylish and smart – the bag of the future. And great for a digital nomad like me. I can take all I need for work away with me in just this bag.

KNOMO bags are all about an organised life (#LIFEORGANISED) with a good-looking and functional bag. The whole idea behind the life organised message is about making everyday easier for digital nomads by eliminating clutter, and organising your belongings as efficiently as possible in a KNOMO bag. From luggage to organisers, backpacks to clutches, there is a KNOMO product for everyone – men and women available.

The coat I have on is an Oldie but a true Goldie. I have had it for a few years now and it still looks as good as new. That is why I rather cough out good money and buy quality than spend a few quid on a piece that wouldn’t even last a season. I can still see myself wearing this stunning winter coat many winters to come. Except I give it out of course.

I got the other items I have on about a year ago and they are all still going strong.
