Wear it Wednesday | Maxi Dress & a Blouse

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Alhamdulillah it’s the middle of the week but more exciting it’s almost Eid! I say “almost” because we still don’t know if we are celebrating on Thursday or Friday, regardless we will be celebrating with family in Chicago.

In this Wear it Wednesday post I’m wearing a maxi dress I bought last year from Target and styled with a blouse for a more dressed-up-running-errands-or-sightseeing outfit. This blouse trick can easily be achieved with any maxi dress in your closet, and a button down blouse or re-style that chambray shirt for this look.

The way to achieve this look is to button up halfway and then grab the two sides of the unbuttoned shirt to make a quick knot or two, then simply tuck inward the knots and back of the shirt and belt it. This outfit looks quite feminine, is very hijabi friendly and not to mention non-restricting.

Eid always brings back memories of my childhood and how my mom always made it so special by getting us new Eid clothes, matching accessories and shoes, decorating the house for family breakfast/dinner parties, eating yummy pakistani food, receiving eidi/presents from parents & relatives, and just spending the day carefree. I miss those days or more so miss my mom (May Allah [swt] grant her the highest place in paradise Ameen.)

May you all have a wonderful day & those celebrating (Thursday or Friday) Eid may it be a joyous day spent with your loved ones, with lots of yummy food and carefree relaxing fun!

Thank you for visiting!
