OK this is my favorite dress ever and I’m sad that its a trendy piece and not something that can work as a staple classic lol I want to wear it ALL THE TIME! The whimsical mesh layering is giving me all the J’Dior vibes and its just so girly! The frills, layers, stars, I’m completely smitten. Will y’all judge me if i wear it over and over on the gram? lol!
Keeping things girly, I dressed up my mesh with pops of pink! My new Gucci Marmont Mini (thanks Hubs!), comfy Rockstuds, & Iya’s chic new blanket. Can you tell I’m obsessed with pom poms & pink like a true girl-mom? My dress was already low-stock on Asos & ended up completely selling out soon after I shared on Instagram yesterday :/ but they do carry a mini version that is in stock and regular sizing (the maxi is a petite exclusive)!
I have an Asos addiction lately because I’m totally loving on their petite section. I’ve always had trouble dressing my body and one of the biggest reasons is my shrimp status. Finally hemlines that are extremely flattering on my 5’3″ self!
Celebrating every milestone to the fullest is becoming more of a norm than a novelty these days. Me, being the perpetually extra person that I am, have absolutely no complaints about this new age of gender reveals, babymoons, and push presents! Waseem and I have traveled quite a bit since getting married four years ago but a dream babymoon was something I just had to have IRL. The era of just us was coming to an end and we needed one last hurrah before two became three.
Haha yes, I plagiarized myself & my Babymoon Essentials post (shh!) but I put my sentiments into words a little too perfectly there and I blame my new-mommy brain mush for being unwilling to write up a new intro.
Bora Bora has been on my bucketlist for years and I had my heart absolutely set on it being our babymoon destination – I refused to even think of a back-up. When I know what I want, I just have to have it! I wanted a relaxing, exotic, & obviously Zika-free vacation and I wanted to stay in an over-water bungalow. This pretty much narrowed it down to French Polynesia…
After spending a few days in Athens, & then Folegandros, I am finishing my Greece tour at my namesake Island of Santorini (named for Saint Irene). I wanted to do style post on the blog daily.. but what might sound great in theory doesn’t always work in execution lol! I have a ton of content on the way but I do have a couple photos of my outfit from today ready for you!! The photo above is probably my favorite photo I’ve ever taken of myself, yay! I cannot take all of the credit though, the most flattering lighting in the world exists in Santorini in my opinion. I wish I could bottle it up and take it with me!
I’m really going to miss the beautiful light in Greece, not only is the environment so picture perfect.. I feel like everyone’s so photogenic in it too! I absolutely love this set of photos I took of myself this morning after breakfast @ Anemi Hotel in Folegandros. I finally put a little bit of effort into my hair and makeup so I got to take it easy in this breezy maxi dress. The blue & white paisley print is so perfect for a Greek holiday! This dress (& everything sitewide @ boohoo) is 50% off for another 12 hours!
I am so sorry for being so MIA on the blog! This summer has been so busy with travels and projects on my other platforms (like YT & IG!), I’ve totally been ignoring my blog-fam – wah! I can’t, or rather shouldn’t, complain about being busy but I can honestly say that I’m pooped! I’m laying in my stark-white room at Anemi Hotel getting ready to turn in for the night but I wanted to share with you my outfit from today. I’m currently on a press-trip in Greece. After a couple days in Athens, today was our first day in Folegandros – a little island in the Cyclades. It’s my first time on the island and its so gorgeous! I can’t wait to share my travels with you, but in the meantime.. my outfits will have to do, :)
I love that off the shoulder has been back in full force all summer, & I’ve been rocking it all season. When I saw this little embroidered dress I thought it was so perfect for this trip and just had to have it! I’ve been loving the trending wicker basket bags as well!! Mine isn’t quite a basket but its beautifully woven; I bought it in Bali earlier this summer. If I wasn’t so sick leading up to my trip I could have taken my time putting outfits together a little better – I think a brown belt would compliment this entire look so well but I am totally accessory-less! I literally just threw all of my new clothes into a suitcase a few hours before my flight lol! Luckily, I think this is still a perfect look for this laid-back traditional island.
