Salaam Everyone! Happy New Year! With the start of the new year comes the time to reflect on everything you’ve done in the past year and how to make the most of the upcoming one Inshallah. I know people think resolutions are silly, even I do because the chances of someone actually following through with one are slim, however, I also think its a good reminder on how to better yourself and change your lifestyle. Recently Ive been taking some time to reflect on myself spiritually. Its so easy to get caught up in this busy world and forget about the One who created everything around you. Its easy to forget that the world we live in is not the reality that we want because it is not eternal. It is not the paradise that we are striving so hard to get into. Sometimes, all we need to do is take a breather and realize that some of the petty things we worry about dont matter in the long run and we have to make the effort to limit our attachment to this Dunya.
Ok enough with my rambling. One of my goals this year is to embrace the maxi all year round. People might think your freezing wearing a maxi dress in the middle of winter but all you have to do is layer up with thermal leggings and layer up with sweaters and long sleeve thermal tops. I wore a white thermal top underneath of this flowy summer shift dress. Shift dresses are the type of dress that give you a clean cut silhouette without showing the shape of your body at all. I personally think a shift dress is more comfortable than a dress with an elastic waistband because its more comfortable and also it makes you look so classy and elegant.
I layered a print on top of a print for this look. The prints dont clash because neither of them are too dark or heavy. This hijab style only took me 30 seconds to do. I just crossed both of the sides around my neck and pinned the side to hold them in place and voila! This type of style has been big with many hijabis as it is super easy to do and basically hassle free because it doesn’t budge and it literally takes seconds.
Now that the New Year has begun, lets all pray for Peace, Happiness and Joy ❤ Inshallah
