Welcome!

Salam guys,

This is Amina welcoming you to my little world where you discover the things I like, dislike, love or hate in terms of clothing, accessories, food, makeup and life in general. 

I was very hesitant to start a blog as I’m not the type of person to turn to my laptop for “work”-unless you consider watching films and Youtube videos work-but I do enjoy the tranquillity of working alone and coming up with creative ideas to share with you. As I’m sipping my Coke and typing here in my room by myself, I cannot wait to actually be productive this year and start something of my own which I hope will bring me a lot of joy.

I consider myself a quite creative person and 20160109_163916in need of a place to let my creativity run free, the only creative platform I find enjoyable momentarily would be here or on Youtube. Because making videos seems a very distant thing for me right now, I’ll keep busy with my blog for the time being and who knows? Maybe I’ll also start an actual Youtube channel one day.

 

20160109_165345

I’ve never aspired to be a writer or author of any kind, nor am I planning on becoming one, so this is by no means the purpose of my blog.  I simply hope my posts will give you more information concerning the photos I upload and I’ll manage to keep it light and entertaining 😉

I’ll be posting in English at least once a week iA. 

Enjoyl! Xo

#MoroccanMonday look 72

Often times my outfits reflect the mood I’m in, and for this week’s look it’s luckily a good one. Despite the high temperatures, the cold wind keeps you refreshed and wearing floral pieces definitely lifts you up. 

 I tried to stay away from the whole predictable black pieces with a pop of colour uniform, and thus opted for a refreshing pair of white jeans instead. This may not be a surprise to most of you, but I’d pick comfort on a day-to-day basis over a painful glam attire any day. Therefore, grabbing my trainers was no shocker (still hunting for those Vans everyone and their mother seem to have in my size by the way). 

 The minty colour of this button-down pyjama-inspired top is beautiful, and the pattern is colourful yet subtle, which I love. I found the original design at Zara with the entire ensemble (I told you this top needed a bottom!) which is absolutely stunning! I didn’t buy it as I knew I’d end up neglecting the one I currently have which would be a waste. Should you be into it, make sure you grab the ensemble before it’s sold out, you won’t regret it. 

 The black sleeveless button-down is somewhat of a safe piece for me, as it goes with basically anything all whilst keeping you covered, bonus points for the fact that you could also rock it as a maxi dress, I’m all about versatility.

During this beautiful (hot!) weather, one can’t help but go for comfortable airy pieces. Therefore, I decided to rock my trusted Canadian tuxedo for this week’s look. 

 In order to keep the look from being too basic, I decided to layer the denim button-down on top of my floral see-through top, I left the button-down hanging loose and open to have sneak peeks of the layer underneath it. The beautiful flower pattern compliments the location of this shoot and I’m loving it. 

 Because the denim-on-denim look gives me that old school vibes, I added the epitomy of the nineties, the famous plastic choker. If it weren’t for Ramadan, I would’ve added a brown lip as well. I like how extremely comfortable the look is, and the pointy leather flats definitely pull everything together.

 I love a slogan tee as much as the next girl, especially when it’s related to girl empowerment which makes sporting my beliefs on my clothes definitely a no-brainer. The comfortable fabric and easy to style colours of this top as well as the bomb logo made me grab it faster than a bullet. 

 This week’s look may scream 80s soccer mom or young premature boy depending on how you look at it, but I definitely enjoy tucking a top into high-waisted jeans and opting for my basic white kicks for ultimate comfort. This look could definitely be spruced up by adding chic pumps and a red lip, but I’d rather go for flats during the day.

 The sleeveless black button-down has proven to be so handy to throw on top of any basic look for that added cover and detail. I’ll definitely be looking for alternative colours or styles to add to my wardrobe, I could even go as far as calling it a wardrobe staple!

Often times I avoid flashy colours when it comes to outfits for my blog as it can quickly become too “clown-esque” and pretty hard to edit. However, during the sunny season I find that quite difficult considering the gorgeous weather and beautiful colourful trends going on, as well as the stunning pieces or makeup products brands are putting out.

 For this week’s look, I went back to these utterly comfortable cobalt blue culottes (or should I say Majorelle blue? 😉) as I just couldn’t stay away for long. For some reason I find an orangy lip or orangy nail varnish to compliment the blue really well (probably something to do with the colour wheel); the greenery in the background sure does lock everything together. To keep the look somewhat calm and not give people a headache when they look at you, I kept the rest of the pieces neutral (yes stripes are considered a neutral in my world, just like denim).

 Black heels could elongate your legs even more considering the fact they already look really long due to the crop top, but I chose comfort instead opting for a pair of basic white trainers. The delicate golden accessories go really well with everything, and so does the metallic handbag that I still find myself grabbing everytime I’m about to head out.

White is key during this hot weather as it keeps you both looking and feeling fresh and cool in my opinion. Due to the high temperatures this week, I chose this super easy and comfortable look involving white basics and some colour. 

 The white t-shirt and jeans give you a great base to layer whatever colour or pattern you want on top, such as denim, gingham, leather or even suede. In my case, I chose this oversized (it’s actually XS believe it or not) checkered button-down and added my trusty denim jacket on top for some added colour. The red and navy on the button-down pretty much go with anything, especially white or black during winter. 

 White trainers haven’t been a trend for nothing, especially these cute little Adidas ones which I wore to death. You could elevate this look by going for a pair of heels and a bit more makeup during nighttime.

 Often times we hear that a certain colour is impossible to pull off or “ugly” such as orange, that’s of course utter nonsense judging by this week’s look. I don’t believe in ugly colours as every single colour could be made beautiful and wearable depending on the clothing piece and the way you style it.

The minute I lay my eyes on this gorgeous orange piece, I instantly knew it would be extremely handy, the assymetric hem and the cut in general is not like anything else out there which is always great. I especially love owning pieces that are unique and haven’t been seen around much.

I love the breezy feeling this piece gives, especially with the cape-like fabric detail in the back that doubles up as a cover for one’s derrière. To keep the focus on the bright happy colour, I chose distressed denim for a casual daytime look, and a pair of golden high-heeled sandals that go perfectly with the warm orange and resemble a beautiful sunset that was definitely one of my inspirations.

I rarely wear a white headscarf as it gets ruined easily with makeup and makes my teeth look more yellow, but I had to wear it with this look to keep everything looking clean and classy. These gorgeous earrings seem to go with everything and I’m obsessed, the added pearl on one side is oh so chic and on trend.

You don’t have to be a gardner/architect/painter to appreciate the gorgeousness of the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech. I’ve been meaning to go for quite a while but never had the chance to until now, and I couldn’t have been happier or more impressed. Everywhere you look is incredible and instagram-worthy, from the brilliant architecture and attention to detail, to the exotic plants and greenery, you just have to walk around and take it all in.

Made by and named after the French painter Jacques Majorelle in the twenties, the Majorelle Garden got even more recognition than his paintings and became an absolute masterpiece. Fast forward to recent years and after being neglected for so long, the garden was then taken over and restored by the late fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge. It is now open to the public for a small fee and includes a little cute café to get some refreshments whilst enjoying your surroundings. 

 Before we went away I did some shopping and came across this beautiful blue culottes that I had to have. From its flattering fit all the way to the gorgeous colour, it was absolutely perfect to shoot in the Majorelle Garden especially when the pretty blue matches the signature colour of the garden. 

 During this warm weather, particularly in Marrakech, I usually go for light fabrics and oversized pieces. However, due to my height, I either have to wear heels to add some length or cinch my waist to keep me from looking like a potato. This time, I chose the latter, but instead of playing it safe and going for a belt, and bcause we all know I ain’t walking around in heels all day, I opted for this trendy and modern corset with a cute ribbon and straps that give it a daytime attire instead of it being too “lingerie-esque”. 

 The metallic brogues add a tiny bit of height and even more glitz to the look, which also keeps the culottes from taking all the spotlight. Getting compliments on my outfit from breathtaking fashionistas during my visit was definitely the cherry on top!

 “If you want to be comfortable, stay home in your pajamas”

– Donatella Verace

 Well dear Donatella, thanks to last year’s trend as seen on Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and many other fashionistas, we can now walk around in our pajamas and actually look impeccable. Even though the heels kind of take away from the whole ‘comfortable’ vibe, but I don’t mind that one bit. 

 The minute I saw this gorgeous floral pajama inspired top I knew I had to have it, although I hoped they’d have trousers to match so I could wear this as a set (Oh my God can you imagine how gorgeous that would be??!!!!), but unfotunately they only had this piece. The gorgeous mint colour is stunning and the floral details are very fresh and suitable for spring. As you can imagine, the top is extremely comfortable and the right fabric as well as colour for this transitional season. 

  Fashion is all about having fun and playing with different looks. Therefore, I wasn’t that surprised to notice that I’ve eventually gone for the ‘more is more’ look instead of light tones and minimal jewellery as I’ve initially imagined the look would be in the shop. I absolutely adore the golden chunky ring/jewellery and red nails that add even more life to the entire look, as well as the strappy sandals that add that needed touch of elegance an height.

Because this look didn’t have enough bling already, I decided to jump on the bandwagon of the whole mismatched earrings trend by featuring this cute triangle earring I got as a gift a while ago on the blog (I’ve been sporting it for ages in real life though). The makeup was kept very light and natural of course to leave all the focus on the clothes and accessories.

Layering has become somewhat of a talent that most modest fashion bloggers seem to have mastered in recent years, you can use Ascia’s latest collaboration with Net-A-Porter as proof with her killer and trendy demure looks. 

 Therefore, I was dying to test out the whole “revealing top worn on top of a crisp white button-down look” for months, and I absolutely love the results. Even though the button-down as well as the glittery top turned out to be baggier than expected, I’m quite pleased with the final look despite it somewhat giving me the illusion of having a baby bump. 

 The toned down colours of the outfit made me want to go for an orangy lip colour for the first time ever, and thank goodness I found this stunning Maybelline liquid lipstick right on time (it doesn’t dry matte as indicated on the tube by the way). The combination of the greenery in spring/summer photos and this popping lip makes a killer combo especially when palm trees and mocktails are involved. 

 The green parts on the Stan Smiths add that perfect pop of colour and most importantly: comfort.

#MoroccanMonday look 63

Even though I was not really a big fan of pink, I’ve grown to love the colour so much after seeing it on so many fashionistas this season that I had to have some pieces.

 This week, I opted for my new striped shirt, because one can never have enough striped pieces, as well as this super cute baby pink bandana with adorable little silver pendants. Nineties fashion is back now more than ever and bandanas are no exception. I especially love the way you can cover yourself all whilst being stylish and keeping up with current trends. 

 Distressed denim has been my go-to style after wearing clean skinnies for a while, I especially love weird hems and a boyfriend fit. The metallic brogues can still be worn now that it’s still not too hot so I’m taking full advantage of that. The sun is out but my toes are still kind of cold. 

 One of the perks of having siblings is trying out pieces you wouldn’t normally buy yourself such as this cute white crochet cardigan with tassels, and I think I’ll be picking up one of my own very soon. This little salmon pink bag I got as a gift was the perfect finishing touch.
