I went up to Manchester last week for Eid, to visit both family and friends. Me and Nadyah got to hang out - we watched Planet of the Apes (great movie!!) and had a little photoshoot to show some of our own personal styles (and have some fun!.. you can see we're trying our hardest not to crack up in the pic). Yes that’s me in hijab. It was an interesting experience putting it on. I’ve worn it only once previously outside of the house, so it’s still all very new to me. But I had fun… I learnt I could still be ‘me’ wearing it. Definitely a stepping stone.
I love our contrasting colours - what do you think of our outfits?
I am wearing: Grey Forever 21 tapered trousers, cream River Island cardigan, peach-coloured New Look crop-tie top, Primark print scarf and grey ASOS peep-toe shoes.
Nadyah is wearing: Electric blue chinos from Zara, great wear for modest dress as they don't fit too tight, Republic T-shirt, New Look leather waistcoat jacket and heels from Barratts. Outfit is carefully picked out to ensure lumps and bumps are covered! Remember the rules of dress: doesn't have to be skin tight to look fab!
