Make a Statement.



Harem Pants&Shoes&Shirt: Forever 21 // Bag&Leather Cardi: Zara // Necklace Turkey (Ebay) 
So lately my new obsession is...a statement necklace! I was really into rings and I still am but lately I'm love these necklaces. They add so much flavor to an outfit especially ones that are so simple. In this outfit above, I really just wore black and white with neutrals, which was super simple but this necklace made it look so much more unique. This type of necklace is everywhere! I got it from ebay that came directly from Turkey. A smaller version is also available at Forever 21 and a similar one at Urban Outfitters. The key is keeping everything else relatively simple so the necklace can really make a statement. If there is too much going on, it won't look put together. I wore this to a day in the city which included a meet and greet with bloggers from all over the world: Dina Tokio, Imane from Fashion with Faith, Basma K., and Ruba from Hijab Hills. It was lovely meeting some new sisters and reuniting with some old ones! mashAllah all of them were so down to earth and so sweet! :) Here are some more pics of my outfit and the meet and greet!

Forever has an AMAZING collection of statement necklaces this season. I definitely would check them out before everything runs out! H&M and Zara also have some nice ones just a little more expensive but still beautiful!!

Kimono Fever




Kimono: Joyce Leslie // Jeans: Zara // Blouse & Shoes: Forever 21 // Bag: H&M



Yesssss! Spring is finally around the corner...at least I hope so! I among many others just want this cold weather to go away. This week will be a tease with some good weather but with some snow too. Anyways, spring is my second favorite season after fall. Florals, pastels, and flow skirts are just a few of the themes. Kimonos have been around for a while but I couldn't really get myself to like certain prints or really wear them. Recently, chiffon flowy ones have come out and I am in love! I have to say I'm pretty picky on floral prints and I finally found one I liked and that I could afford. I found this sweet chiffon floral kimono from joyce leslie (I know shocker). Some of you are thinking, what in the world is that? It's definitely a cheap store...but you can find some gems in there if you look! I loved some at urban but were way out my price range for just a short trend. I'm so happy I waited until I found this. I also love florals in the spring and summer but realized I can't wear floral pants, they just don't suit me. So I love that I can wear floral print as a kimono and even as a dress. I paired it with some casual  blue jeans from Zara which I REALLY recommend. The comfiest jeans, well jeggings ever! I've just given up on buying jeans cause either they don't fit or they're not comfy or too long. I'm definitely getting some more of these from there. Here are some more details of my Kimono.













Some more Floral Kimono's!



hope you enjoyed!

maxis&skirts in the winter?

skirt: h&m // fur vest: cotton on // bag: zara // shoes&necklace: call it spring 
It is definitely not easy wearing skirts and maxi's in the winter. Although, I personally love wearing maxis and skirts vs. pants, it is not my preference during the snow and rain. If you're near me on the east coast, you're definitely just wearing boots and sweats as much as possible. But on the days where its not wet and nasty, I love to pull out maxi's and skirts. And yes, surprisingly, you can stay really warm! The key, as I always say, is layering. It's not just about bulking different articles of clothing, but the right kinds of layers. Whenever I wear skirts or maxis, I not only wear tights underneath but I wear the tights with fleece lining--those are super warm! I also, depending on how cold it is, wear leg warmers. I use to sometimes feel shy of wearing boots with maxi's but in this winter I definitely don't anymore. On top I always try to wear 2-3 layers to keep me warm. Under my hijab, I'm wearing this ninja cap I purchased from ebay, inspired by Dina Tokio's! It's definitely better than a regular under piece since it doesn't slip, covers the neck and keeps my ears super warm! 

Look 1: Rustic Tribal
If you follow my Facebook page Simply Covered, I posted in my Fabulous Finds this perfect pocketed maxi skirt from H&M. It comes in a few colors and its only $17.95! I already have it in a few colors and had to add this rustic beauty to my collection. This look is probably the easiest. The fur vest adds drama to this simple skirt and long tee. I added a plain tribal necklace for some print. 


Look 2: Cozy Damask 
Skirt: Urban Outfitters // Shirt&Cardi&Scarf: Forever 21 // Fur Collar: H&M

I love adding a slouchy casual sweater on a fancy skirt. This look is super comfy and can be worn anywhere. The fur vest adds some character to this simple look. This hijab is my latest favorite. I was looking for this print everywhere and finally found it at forever! It goes with almost anything. 




Look 3: Royals
Jeans: Zara // Maxi Dress: H&M // Shoes: Forever 21 // Necklace: Ebay
For the last look, I wanted to show a dressed up take on maxis during the winter. I got this perfect maxi from H&M a month ago and could not wait to wear it. I wore these zara jeggings that are so comfortable underneath since the dress had a slit in the front. Since I wore a statement necklace I kept everything else pretty simple. I got it from my secret store...ebay!! You will not believe the amazing things that I find on there. My new favorite lip is this coral-orangy color I made mixing a few different shades. Obviously, I cannot wait for spring!
