I love to dress up, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I seem to have lost the desire that I used to have. Maybe it’s because when I was younger, I wanted to look nice and put together not just for myself, but with hopes of attracting someone.
Let’s be honest, we all do it. Ha!
In any case, I’m married and I wish I had that same drive that I used to.
(Again, this brings me full circle to the need for more women’s only parties where we deck out and let our hair run wild!)
But, I’m also referring to dressing up and styling my hijab when I go out.
I get in a style rut because I’m used to wearing business or business casual for work days. And then on my days off, I go to jeans and tshirts or tunics.
As you may have noticed, I attended a women’s fashion show over the weekend, and I had a bit of a dilemma. I literally just donated all my old worn out skirts and had nothing to wear.
I mean I had plenty of pants, but nothing that I felt was dressy enough.
After I thought about it, I figured since the fashion show was in the afternoon and not in the evening, I would be safe not decking out in formal wear.
I chose to put together a typical outfit that I guess is my style. A shirt dress and pants.
However, I realized I bought these linen pants last year and never got the chance to wear them. With the nice weather, they were the perfect choice, and it was a nice option to wear under the tunic because it didn’t bunch up like jeans usually do.
