These are the rest of my photos taken for the collaboration in the previous post. I love that the leaves are finally changing and its actually beginning to feel like fall here! No more hot days for a few months, which is exciting since it's hot most of the year here. Anyways, this is just a really simple outfit with a black, white, and gray combo.  I also added a few rings/midi rings and a wrap bracelet for my accessories (but you cant see them in the pictures). Hope you like it!

Outfit Collab

A few weeks back I worked on a collaboration with Haleema, (youtuber and creator of the button closed hijab), and fellow fashion blogger Fifi. We each recreated an outfit from an Instagram post and made it "Hijab Friendly." It was great getting to see how we each put our own spin on it!
You can follow these 2 beauties on Instagram at @fifi_hijabista and @haleemas_boutique

Black and Pink OOTD

For this outfit I wanted to highlight the hijab, so I wore a sold black shirt and black shoes, (since it would make the light pink in the hijab stand out more). I wore a crystal hand chain to add a little extra detail, but that's it.
I found this shirt at Sam Moon by chance, and was really excited for it. It's a longer length, long sleeves, and can be worn alone or layered. Perfect. I am always looking for shirts like this!

D.I.R. Fashion "Striped Ball Gown Maxi Skirt" Review


This Striped Ball Gown Maxi Skirt from D.I.R. Fashion has quickly become one of my favorites; it matches practically everything! I love how the back has a hidden elastic waist, yet the front doesn't. This makes it sooo much easier to ensure fit when ordering online, but it still has a clean look to it. It also has 2 pockets in the front, which is an added bonus. The length is pretty long (which is great for all you tall girls). If your not tall, it can easily be hemmed, so I don't consider that to be a problem. The quality is good and I like the material. I do recommend wearing a slip underneath, but that's probably just me being paranoid. It doesn't appear to be see thru, and the material isn't extremely thin or clingy, its just better to be cautious. They plan on restocking the sizes of this skirt soon, I'A, so make sure to follow them on social media to find out when it's restocked!
D.I.R. Fashion (stands for diamond in the rough) was created in order to help sisters find modest, classy, and fashionable clothing at reasonable prices. They wanted to create a site where you could shop for modest clothing, since local stores only had a limited variety of suitable modest clothes. The best part- 10% of all profits will be donated to charity! Make sure to check out the website for beautiful maxi skirts, dresses, tops, hijabs, and more!
