Regardless of how much I love layering and the ever growing excuse to shop even more then I already do, for those must have knits and gloves (that I’ll probably loose), I always suffer that ‘winter is coming’ transition where the blues kick in and paves way for a five day, pyjama clad, hibernation from the physical world (thank God for Pinterest).
But thanks to my hefty up-coming schedule and inspiration from some unpublished images that Carrie and I shot in the Summer, I’m ready to face London again, just with more clothes on then the below suggests.
Who doesn’t love dressing for Fall? It’s always been my favourite time of the year for fashion and since moving to Dubai, I rarely get to see my thigh-high boots, knitwear or coats, let alone wear them. So when I was in London on a trip with Farfetch for their Global Ambassador Gathering (Reem and I are proud to be their Middle Eastern ambassadors) I made the most of layering. I packed so much that I barely had time to wear everything, I’m surprised I didn’t get out my mini Fendi’s raincoat and dress her up too. Take advantage of your beautiful weather people! It may be getting cooler in Dubai but no way could I get away with justifying the amount of oversized outerwear purchases I want to make right now. Hashtag take me back to London.
I just got back to the UK after twelve beautiful, semi-work free days in Dubai for a little family reunion and some belated ceremony celebrations. I had an incredible time in Dubai, but I must admit, it feels good to be back in London, especially as in a couple of hours Natalya will be landing for a special project we have, so I don’t get to miss my sister for too long.
While we are going to be busy shooting more Winter appropriate outfits over the next few days, I thought it would be the perfect time to finally share one of my favourite looks with you from Paris.
I wore these beautiful pieces from the SS15 Madiyah Al Sharqi collection for one of my final days at Fashion Week and can’t get enough of how romantic this look is, with everything from those dusty shades, the intricate fabric and of course, that stunning backdrop.
