My Style Evolution

Hello Lovelies! A Ramadaan Mubarak to my followers who are celebrating this holy Month. Two days in and it’s going by so quickly!

I was archiving my photos on my PC when I started going through old photographs (and by old I mean from about 2011 onwards) and I can tell that my style has changed, grown and evolved overtime so much so, that I thought I would go through the timeline to find out what looks I still keep today, what I have put to rest and what I would still like to experiment with.

Mind you, I feel like I still haven’t quite adapted to a specific style (as my outfit usually depends on the mood I am in) and I am still pretty much finding myself.

Read more below about my journey thus far.

My love for fashion and style started at a very early age (about 4 according to my mom) – I would insist on dressing myself – and would continue to change my outfit about 5 times in one day!

You would think this would seep into adulthood, which surprisingly it did not (I mean, as a Muslim Bride I only had one dress on my Wedding Day – Come on!)

After High School (and that dreaded uniform) I explored my style in many many maaaany ways – from the oh so casual jeans and knitwear look, to maxi skirts and chambray shirts, I did it all.

For about a year I was really obsessed with  tulle skirts:

The whimsical look of it, the fact that it could be dressed up or down, it was just so versatile and cute. I still own a black tulle skirt which I love and wear on date nights or special occasions (weddings and Eid).

One thing that has been a continuous factor throughout my style journey was comfortability – Which is why my style lately is more athleisure/sport luxe inspired. I am all about that comfortable life.

But I still love a good dress up day, heels, makeup and bold accessories. Now that it’s winter, booties are my go to heel and they are super comfy and versatile

One thing is for certain – I really love blush!
