WIW | Leather Jacket & Maxi Skirt

Happy Wednesday!

Wow, I feel like it’s been forever since I did a Wear it Wednesday post.  I have not been able to take many outfit snaps lately since it’s freezing outside, and when I usually do step out for leisure it’s after sunset and outfit snaps at night don’t come out as great as in natural lighting.  Anywho, January for our family marks the beginning of birthday season.  A few of our family members have birthday’s in January, then the husband and I in February and it goes on until middle of the year when it transitions into anniversary season.

My #ootn — I loved this faux leather jacket that I picked up from Target!

Last month, as soon as we returned from our vacay we celebrated Umair’s sister’s birthday at Alhambra Palace Restaurant here in Chicago.  The restaurant is known more for it’s entertainment rather than the food.  The entertainment includes everything from several belly dancers, sword, fire dancers, to singers and then later just an all around dance room.  It was a fun night out and we got to dress up and take some snazzy snaps.

This guy was all over the place– he was part of several of the entertainment skits

To the party I wore my purple pleated maxi skirt, but this time paired it with a faux leather jacket that gave the look an edge.  I continued the edgy look with my bag with chain details and some spiked bracelets.  There are so many fabulous faux leather jacket options that it’s hard not to have several in your closet, and maxi skirts are a must for a hijabi’s closet.

With the beginning of the year, and with February being my birthday month it always inspires me to update my wardrobe by adding new staples that I can wear over and over again throughout the year.  Here are some pieces/styles that have been inspiring me lately.  Let’s see what I end up adding.

Thank you so much for visiting and have great day!

Umair’s Sweetheart,
Ayesha
