I think there are two types of Muslim girls, those that like their scarves / veils small and extremely neat and those who like theirs big, thick and a little unruly. I am definitely down for the latter.
Sometimes I get questions like “Don’t you think your veil is a little shabby?” or “Maya do you need some quick tutorials for your veil?” No honey I like them just like that, not so neat and long enough to hang on the side – as you can see Here. I must say I have been struggling with colors lately – more like indecisive of what to call certain shades LOL, so i will let you awesome creatures decide and tell me what color this skirt is.
First I will have to ask you to excuse my ironing and steaming skills – I know, next to zero. Then you wonder what I learnt during my six years of boarding school but I must say even my despicable ironing skills didn’t do any injustice to this skirt. Can I hear an Amen for that? I think this skirt is such a classic and timeless piece as this style keeps coming back (got a chance to check mama’s old staff?) and of course a motivator to keep that waist line in shape because I will be rocking this 5 years from today – styled differently of course.
Black is such an easy and safe color that doesn’t need much thought and for a typical lazy morning this black crop top and black heels were my first and unchallenged option (no need to look twice at the mirror). I accessorized with a golden belt to extenuate my waist and add a little bit of pop. Ooh how I love this scarf, the neutral colors make it easy to wear with so many pieces and is big enough to play around with.
