Salaam everyone! Summers coming to an end, and to savor the last few days, I went to NYC for the day with my friend for some back to school shopping and sight-see-ing. First hand advice, NEVER WEAR BLACK IN THE CITY!, i was boiling under neath my kimono, It was so hot T_T. But other than that, I thought my outfit was cute and chic, and it definitly gave off a city chic vibe, even though I was dying under that heat.
I wore this floral kimono over a white blouse and tied it in the front. Tie-ing the kimono helped elongate my figure by showing off my black skirt. It created the illusion that I had longer legs and I seemed tall, which is always a plus when it comes to fashion.
I wore my favorite statement necklace to spice up the outfit, and a pink/tan hijab to add more color to my almost all black ensemble. I regret taking my purse because it was a hassle, If I could change, Id bring a small black backpack with me so I could put my wallet, phone and keys without having to put so much strain on one shoulder. But other than that, it was a really fun day in the city. I strongly reccomend trying the udon at Dake sushi, its a tiny place but the service is quick and friendly.
Thanks for Reading this super short post. Once school starts, inshallah Ill get back into blogging weekly. But until then, Inshallah until next time<3
