My Eid Outfit in full

Hey beautiful,

Hope you've all enjoyed Eid celebrations with your loved ones.
Alhamduallah the weekend has come and gone too fast enjoyed with the company of loved ones.
I took a sneaky 30 min away from serving and preparing meals to get my pictures done for my outfit as promised.
I'm lucky to have an awesome niece who's willing to put up with my demands :P in search for those great shots.
I've had this dress for months but just never got around to making the required adjustments. It was extremely long and required a lot of work. Part laziness and not finding a tailor i trust just added to the delay. 
I feel in love with it scrolling through Asos and it was mine in under a week thanks to their amazing express shipping. I loved the detailing and it's imperfection to some extent. It reminds me of traditional Eritrean clothing. My mother use to crotchet the exact patterns on linen and sell them. She told me and couldn't believe it so i went looking for it and I found some in my linen cupboard. i'm talking about over 25 years. 

Here are the photos:

-Look Details-
wrap dress- Asos collection  
Hijab- Myer  Necklace- Free People 
Sunnies & clutch- Witchery
Ring- H&M

until next post,
take care

Hey Eid Mubarak to those who celebrated around the world,

Wishing you all a happy Eid and may Allah accept all the deeds and efforts of those who made the hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca).

My last look is properly my favourite look.

Hi lovelies,

As promised here is my Eid Look 2-

This is a simple and easy outfit to put together. 
It was a windy day so please don't mind the hijab.
I'm a massive fan of the Kimono. They come in so many prints, colours and design it can be dressed up or down. Modest and so easy wear.
I wore the kimono over one of my jersey long sleeve dresses and matching scarf and heels.
I love the fringe detail on the hands of the kimono which will add drama to any outfit.

-Look 2-
Dress- ebay Kimono- vintage from the Daylesford market
 Heels- Novo clutch- Temt

Thank you to my nieces Hajar and Nada for taking the photos and helping out.
Brunch at my fav cafe and other ootd to come next week.

Eid Look 3 coming up tomorrow.

Take care
