OOTD: Some outfits from the past weeks~

Standard

I’ve been lazy and busy! 🙂 So here are a few outfits from the past week. image

 

I got the black and white striped dress from H&M a couple of weeks back. It was on sale. I got a few more things too. Maybe I can do a shopping haul post sometime soon.

Enjoy!

Sunday is Monday: Daily Look

Standard

July 13

That’s me this morning. I love my white jacket! The skirt is a very old one which I took out after ages!

I badly need some colorful shoes!

_______________________________________

In the UAE, Sunday is Monday! And seriously in Ramadaan, the first day of the week is pure torture. The kids are on summer vacation and they tend to stay up still late. Both of them can’t sleep on their own, I have to sit and watch till they fall asleep. My  7 years old is getting better but the Princess still takes more than an hour to fall asleep. By the time, they are down it’s usually around mid night and then I have to be up for sahoor at 3:30 again! And guess what I rarely get any sleep between 12 and 3! Why? Coz of staying thirsty all day, I can’t help but keep on drinking water after Iftaar and when it’s time to go to bed, the loo keeps calling! Sigh. Same story repeats after Sahoor (The morning meal). Going back to sleep after Fajr (the morning prayers) at 4:30 isn’t that hard, but staying asleep is! And then the alarm rings at 7:30, I keep on snoozing it till 8:30 and am always late for work during Ramadaan!!!

My mom came over last month, because my babysitter quit without a notice and I had no one to watch the kids while I and DH were at work. I’m sad that the month has ended so soon, my mom leaves tomorrow morning. I’m going to miss her big time.

MiL will arrive the next day; At least that’s a solace, the kids won’t feel my mom’s absence too much. But I will. Don’t get me wrong. I love my MiL but having my own mother is totally different!! Sigh.

 

 

Today’s Look: Floral Pants

Standard

I bought these Floral Print Lee Cooper pants a few weeks back but never really got to wear them because nothing looked right with it. Did I mention, I suck at pairing things up, at mix and match? 🙂 Anyways, I got this full sleeved shrug the other day and finally I thought I’d nailed it. But I could still do better with the shoes and bag. That’s a big gap in my wardrobe. Sigh! Let me know what you thing. I definitely, won’t mind an honest opinion. WP_20140709_09_48_28_Pro Love,
