A Bit of Summertime Sadness.

Hijab and Pin: Arusa Collection/ Abaya: Sapphire London/ Bag: Dune/

Ze  (my lovely photographer) and I recently visited the Saatchi Gallery (You can read about it here) and in all honesty, although i'm completely uninterested in Art, it was nice to spend time with a friend. In this gallery-visiting outfit of the day I decided to go casual and comfortable (Well to some extent...my shoes were killing me by the end of the day) and pair my April Bloom Arusa Collection scarf with the matching Crystal hijab pin. It was certainly hard to stay away from my usual black abaya but I did it! and styled my outfit with my blue dress which I talked about previously in this post

Anyway on a completely separate tangent from the outfit; I've got something to admit, i'm kinda feeling "meh" about the blog recently. Perhaps it's a case of writers block or perhaps my worse fear is coming to life...i'm growing out of blogging. Don't get me wrong I love the blog and blogging has been a passion of mine ever since I started blogging when I was sixteen but I'm genuinely developing a disliking against anything social media. Perhaps It's not even about blogging, perhaps I'm suffering from a little summertime sadness. I do hope these feelings dissolve and I get my mojo back. Anyway, as I write this it's about 1:37am in the morning and i'm probably just tired, so I best stop here before I confuse you all as well as myself.

  2. Love the outfit! To be honest I'm kind of feeling the same too about social media, I'm not on it as much as I used to be before. Thanks for sharing this post and girl I LOVE your blog your doing a great job and I truly enjoy reading it.

  3. Loved the outfit & the entire post ! - I honestly feel the exact same way! I don't even know how to describe it but everyone I get an opportunity or I get more followers or likes or people being lovely and commenting - I start to feel very distant towards my social media accounts - I feel like I would feel at Ease if I just deleted the whole lot, I don't know how other people do it and continue without having these feelings/thoughts. Thanks for sharing your thoughts

    1. Thanks for commenting, it's great to know i'm not the only one who feels this way. Perhaps because social media gives us the opportunity to somehow portray a better version of ourselves online we feel that we're not being 100% genuine. I know for a fact that cutting down on being online has really helped me explore myself as a person and focus less on other peoples perceptions of me.

  4. Such a beautiful outfit! Love the dress with that scarf!
