My Top Ten Summer Vacation Must-Haves

The following are my top 10 items to pack on a summer-trip. A lot of the items I've chosen are versatile and basic that can be worn with just about anything. The whole idea when packing is to have pieces that will mix-and-match well and provide you with a maximum number of outfits.

1. Denim Jacket- It matches everything! No Joke! You can pair it with a skirt, linen pants, white pants, maxi dresses... the list goes on and on.
2. Blazer- A blazer is a great option that can go from day-to-night. If you're out all day, a blazer is a good choice that will transition well into night for occasions that are bit more dressy.

Fashion for Compassion: Fashion Show

This weekend, I went to a charity fashion show for Texas Muslim Women's Foundation. The organizers of the event were two local young women,  Ndaa Hassan, CEO & Designer of Écharpe à la Mode, and Zeena Alkurdi, CEO & Designer of Pearl Boutique. They did an amazing job bringing together our community and fellow Muslim designers in a fabulous way for a great cause.
I apologize in advance for the pictures. We were sitting on the side, so the angle isn't the best. Enjoy!

Celebrity Style: Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo is considered one of New York's elite, and known for her sense of style. I'm always amazed at how she can pull together great hijabi-friendly outfits, minus the hijab, and be considered fabulous by fashion blogs and magazines everywhere. Yet, if she added that piece of fabric to cover her hair, it would be a completely different story.

1 outfit, 4 looks

1 outfit 4 looks

It was hard to stick with just four looks. There is so much you can do. Both, the skirt and top are considered neutral, so pretty much match anything!

Nautical Adventure: Obsessed with the Sea

I really love this look. It's inspired by my childhood when we would go on vacations to the beach or a day out on the lake. I loved being out on the water. Brings me back to a very happy place.
