Back from my slumber

So I keep coming back hoping to sustain the momentum I've created in my head for blogging...lol but before you know it I'm back to wondering why I still have my blog active today.
In the 7 months between posts I'm wondering when the next post will come.
I truly admire fellow bloggers that can bring out contents day in day out without fail. 
I can easily list my reasons but I don't see the point. I'll just share my ootd from todays stroll through one of my favourite gardens in Melbourne.

Photo credit to my beautiful niece Nada who came out with me today and road tested her new camera.  


until next time
take care

Summer Love- No layering required

Hello friends,

My goodness 2015 has started and is already 6 days in as I write up this post.. might be 7 by the time the post goes live :P
Summer is here for us living down under. It's been so inconsistent but of course thats nothing new for us Melbournians.
As a hijabi people are shocked to hear me express my love for summer and all things hot weather. It makes sense though... people can not comprehend how I can see any advantages as a hijabi with the heat. Friends and colleagues alike question me all the time. I've always loved water and sunshine and also that my african skin can't handle the cold.
On the topic of heat one thing I've always managed is my ability to dress for the weather. I dislike layering and would avoid it where possible.
Here's an outfit worn on a really warm Melbourne summer day-
A light chiffon long sleeve dress with buttons down the front paired with my jeans.
Jeans aren't my go to bottoms but they were ok for the day.

-Outfit details-
Dress- Vintage from Lost & Found market
Jeans- Tribeca 
Hijab- borrowed
Bag- Mocha
Shoes- Tony Bianco
Sun glasses- Witchery
Watch- Michael Kors

Next post- My trip to Perth... super excited for some time off from work for 2 weeks and just can't wait to be a beach bum for a few once.
Until Next time..
Take care
