I collaborated with one of my favourite fashion brands Karen Millen and The Domain Hotel in Bahrain a couple of months ago for a sky high fashion shoot on the 36th floor at The Vie lounge.
Choosing the outfit was left to me and I wanted to create a different look that was suitable for modest fashion and yet looked smart and good enough as an ‘occasional’ outfit.
The jumpsuit was a halter neck so I chose a short blazer to smarten up the look and picked a pop of colour for my scarf.
The fabric was a gorgeous floaty silk and the bottom half of the jumpsuit was wide leg that was gathered at the waist, it fell down like a skirt not showing any shape or form so that short blazer worked a treat!

I wanted to share this recent outfit of the day post with you all where I styled a floral waistcoat I got from Istanbul.
It’s nice to sometimes layer lose and comfy pieces with a semi-structured piece. In this case I put this look together with a pair of wide leg trousers and a long tunic shirt with my long waistcoat. I wore a pair of nude brown suede heels and a soft pink plain coloured hijab.

Today was the third day of Eid here in Bahrain, and after a very busy first two days it was a little more relaxed.
So I chose to wear a cream coloured dress which I bought from Sile, a small seaside town on the outskirsts of Istanbul in Turkey. This is where my mother’s from and it’s very well known for it’s Sile Bezi or Sile Cloth. A natural fabric that’s woven like a type of muslin and is treated in the local sea with the salty water and then air dried.
It’s beautifully light and is used for a whole variety of things from dresses to blouses to table cloths and napkins. Traditionally it’s hand embroidered in colourful floral and symetric designs.
My dress has a thick lace edging at the hem and neckline, plain, not so traditional maybe but none the less extremely comfortable. I added an old rope typr designed belt for a more boho look.
