Windy Day! Inspired

Greetings everyone!  Hope you all had a beautiful weekend.  As for me, since last weekend was a longer one here in Dubai (UAE celebrated Isra' Al Miraj, a religious celebration for the Muslims), there was a lot going on including meeting up with my friend, Nina, to follow up on our little door gifts project for her brother's wedding we started a few weeks ago. It was fun! Too bad though, Captain was away in Africa and was not able to celebrate Father's Day with us, this year.  To both Captain and my Dad, I would like to say Happy Father's Day and God bless!

Ok, now back to the topic today.  As bloggers we tend to have another blogger/bloggers whose style we adore or whose wardrobe we would love to raid!. For me one of those bloggers whose style I love is Ola from Styles by Ola. She can make a simple outfit fabulous by just adding some nice accessories or simple tuck and tie plus she makes everything look so effortless. This skirt and knotted top is an inspiration I borrowed from one of her posts which I like a lot. It was windy on the day we shot this outfit, so excuse the messy hair and flying hem :)

To Ola, thank you, sweetie! Keep inspiring!













So, who is your favorite blogger/bloggers?  Do you get inspired by them?

This week I will be Blog Hopping! :)

  2. What a stylish look! I've only recently discovered knotting my shirt over a dress or skirt, and can't believe I never thought of it on my own. It really extends your wardrobe! That skirt looks fabulous on you!

  5. I love this outfit! The red skirt is really pretty. My favorite blogger is The Glamourai! She can wear anything and everything. She has talented, not only can she design but she can also sew, and is an incredible writer. I have a lot of respect for Kelly.

    1. Alicia, this is my first time trying the knotted shirt and I was skeptical in the beginning but I guess it's alright, I made it age appropriate by wearing a high-waisted skirt and knotted a bit lower so no flesh shown.. don't want my boys to freak out! ;D
