HOOTD | Hot Pink & Navy Blue

Happy Monday everyone!

Here is an hijabi outfit of the day from my vacay! My family, friends & I did a few touristy things yesterday and visited a beautiful beach in Key Biscayne. The weather was blazing hot but we all had a great time and took some fun and memorable snaps at the beach.

My outfit of the day snaps are courtesy of my younger sister who took nice detailed shots and also a beautiful pic for the back of my favorite skant this season- I will be wearing these palazzo’s on repeat! I love the saturated colors of the top and pants and decided to pair it together which pops with the sunny, beachy backdrop. Enjoy!

HOOTD | Black, White & Pop of Pink

Happy Monday everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend. I did my usual go on a date with the husband on Friday. We first had dinner at Maggiano’s which was quite delicious- I had balsamic glazed salmon and the husband stuck to having a pasta.

After dinner we had reserved tickets for Man of Steel- which was amazing and you can check out our review here.

The following pics are for my outfit of the evening, and of me admiring Henry Cavill.

Movie Review | Man of Steel 3D

Hi everyone!

20130615-155952.jpg

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Yesterday we checked out Man of Steel which we had been looking forward to for many months, well actually the husband had been looking forward for many months. Yet, to my surprise I loved it more than I ever expected and became smitten with Henry Cavill, the actor playing superman.

What I loved about the movie was how well the story was told and how those who are not aware of the story can catch up without feeling lost throughout the movie.

K.I.S.S (keep it simple stupid) Movie Review: Man of Steel 3D

AnU Overall Rating: 8.5/10
3D Experience: 8/10
Action Scenes: 8/10
Direction: 8/10
Story: 8.5/10

If you haven’t already I would highly recommend checking it out.
FYI- there is no after credits scene so don’t bother staying an extra five minutes after the movie.

Have a great Saturday!

Tempting Tuesday | High End Maxi Skirts

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I’m starting a new feature, Tempting Tuesday, where I will feature high end designer pieces. I love to take inspiration from luxury designers and pay attention to details of textile pattern, fabric choices, design, style and fit. I then try to look for high street pieces that feature similar details.

The stand out piece for this first Tempting Tuesday is the maxi skirt. The maxi skirt should be a staple in a modest fashionistas closet. The maxi skirt offers versatility to dress up or down, and can be worn on any occasion or outing. Most of all maxi skirts are comfortable, and during warmer months feel refreshingly airy.

I’m completely lusting over these beautiful maxi skirts. On the top row I’m loving the fresh take on china print with the luscious pleats. The yummy yellow skirt probably has to be my favorite from the set with the gorgeous drape detail. The last in the row was chosen because of the lovely coral paisley print- what a beauty!

On the second row the abstract print is so unique that pairing it with a simple top would let the skirt take center stage. The skirt in the middle looks almost like a beautiful tulip draping so elegantly and the pastel blue is perfect for this season. And the last skirt of the bunch stood out to me because of the clean streamlined fit and the on trend mirror print but instead of being on the sides I love how it’s on the top and bottom.

Do you love maxi skirts? What details do you look for when adding a piece to your wardrobe?

Hope you enjoyed this Tempting Tuesdays feature!

Road Trip & Spring Deity HOOTD

Happy Thursday everyone!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I feel like the week flew by and now I’m looking forward to the weekend.

As I mentioned for Memorial Day weekend we headed out to Cleveland, Ohio. We decided to take a road trip and enjoy the scenery from a car since we hardly get to drive. We arrived in Cleveland late on Friday night and went straight to bed. Saturday morning we hangout in downtown Cleveland, went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (pictures below) as we were entering one of the employees commented on my look and called me “the Spring deity” it made me laugh and I told them I was there to represent Spring. The Hall of Fame was good but not as great as I expected. I think I enjoyed the architecture more than the actual displays inside. In the afternoon we met with friends to have dinner at Stir Crazy Fresh Asian Cuisine. The restaurant has a unique concept of custom creating your stir fry, basically you get to pick which ingredients you would like in your dish and the chef cooks it up while you watch- similar in concept to a hibachi restaurant but quicker! I guess you can kind of screw up your dish if you over do it with the ingredients but mine turned out pretty good. The husband ordered a stir fry from the menu and he also enjoyed his dish.
After dinner we caught a viewing of Fast and the Furious 6 (I can’t believe this was the sixth and seventh is in the works!) You can check out our KISS movie review to see how we rate it tomorrow on the blog.

The next day we headed to Cedar Point with our friends. The husband and I hadn’t heard of Cedar Point until recently- I guess being from Florida the land of Disney World, Universal Studios and Bush Gardens we forgot other theme parks actually exist. Cedar Point was great- it was nice to enjoy some extreme roller coasters but the two hour lines were not fun. The newest roller coaster was Gate Keeper which we rated as second best to Millenium Force- we completely recommend that if you love roller coasters and visit Cedar Point. We left the park pretty late and were drained by the time we got to our hotel. Monday we headed back to Illinois and relaxed rest of the day by watching our newest Netflix tv binge, Alias.

This hijabi outfit for the weekend features a sweet turquoise and peach color combo with one of my favorite dresses. The color’s work well together because they are complementary stemming from hues of blue and orange. This day look is very comfortable and can be pulled together with any dress that you already have in your closet.

Iron Man 3 review & HOOTD deets

Hello everyone! Our usual Friday consists of going out for our date night however this week we decided to order in and catch a late showing of Iron Man 3 in 3D.  We both loved the movie (myself especially since I can’t resist Robert Downey Jr. in the Iron Man).  Following in our K.I.S.S review which we will do for movies we watch which mostly include action thrillers since Umair is a self-proclaimed geeky movie buff.
