Of course in Dubai, Winter really means, Summer, only just a little chillier. But in Europe, in France in particular it means Winter. I spent a couple of weeks home in the South of France over the Christmas Holidays and because I hadn’t had a proper Winter in 2 years, I made sure I was prepared to face the minus temperatures.
A quick look around the shops and I ended up in Gap where I found this beautiful grey wholly jumper which felt warm and cosy! And it did not disappoint! I probably wore it every day (or almost!) and, paired with a little thermal vest top, it kept me warm throughout!
I also picked up a couple of pair of winter socks in Gap which, again, I wore to death as they really kept my feet snug inside my boots.
I still managed to catch a terrible cold and a bit of a bronchitis BUT all looking stylish!
About time I posted a bit of a fashion-y post! I’d love to do more of these but the logistics of it is a little… complicated! This time though, I enrolled the help of my very good friend Liouaa who also blogs at jamtheglam.com and we played dress-up in her garden!
I recently went on a bit of a Summer shopping spree and picked some really good pieces. Things I wouldn’t normally wear but thought to try them out anyway…. cos that’s what fashion is all about right?
One of the things I got is this lovely white lacey dress from H&M. It was such a bargain too (AED149 I think)! I love the length of it, I love the lace details which makes it so feminine and I love the fact that it can be dressed down or up for a night out.
I chose to model the daytime/dressed down look by pairing it with a cropped denim jacket from Koton, a pair of leopard-print espadrilles from H&M and a little leather clutch from Gap.
I’ll do a ‘going-out/evening’ version for sure so will share on my Instagram
