Work that dress!

I love this top, mine is even more modest as it doesn't have bust shaping but if you 'draw your veil over your chest' it shouldn't matter. I really feel very muhajabat wearing this outfit; the length is great with trousers. Its very appropriate for work but with a skirt could be jilbab equivalent for visiting a masjid. I also love wearing leather boots as you can wipe over them for wudhu as they are khuffayn.

Maroon and Brown in Beautiful

Maroon & Brown

Another what I'm wearing post with alternatives. Yesterday I wore sort of what's in the middle but the shirt was a button up and I wore a jacket over top. I've got two more formal options on either side, all skirt based. I love the dress on the right - great to see long sleeve maxi dresses but be careful with jersey knits as they can cling. It might be better to wear a coat over the top or a long sweater.

I'm trying to blog more so sorry if they aren't hugely interesting, there are lots of great muhajabat blogs out there. Inshallah my blog is interesting for some, may Allah swt bless you all.

Green collar hijabi

Green collar

Here's an approximation of what I'm wearing today, although my shirt is more of a business shirt than this tunic style. I really challenged my style recently and bought three shirts in colours I don't normally wear for work - green, pink and maroon. I'm really enjoying wearing my more colourful hijabs and trying out new colour combos like green-navy-teal. When wearing bright colours to work I feel really comfortable when I wear a formal jacket or light coat on top.
