More Maxis

So the weather hasn't been too good recently, but I'm looking forward to warmer days and here's one such outfit in anticipation. Miss Selfridge has another maxi dress in right now, and the soft pink and brown tones are perfect for spring. The sleeves are quite generous so I'd add a brown long-sleeve top underneath, pink hijab (but brown would work well too), simple sandals and bag and finish off with some mixed bangles:


Indian print tier maxi dress £45, Miss Selfridge; pashmina £6.99, The Hijab Shop; Massamartana bag £40, Aldo; sandals £59, Nine West; hi-neck under-sweater £9, Promod; coral mixed bangle set £15, Miss Selfridge.

Pink and chocolate. I never thought of that colour combination! It looks delicious enough to eat..like strawberry icing on chocolate cake or something..

Hi, could you please write an item on basic garderobe? What are the basics you should have in your garderobe?

Hey You!

I always check your blog for inspiration.
But I will have to ask for a favor. I live in the states where it seems impossible to find a maxi dress with sleeves. Even before I was wearing the hijab I would look everywhere for them without any success. So please if you could ask your readers who live in the US some advice, I would appreciate.
I would also like to know if I can combine a tube maxi dress with a tank top and make it hijab friendly? what do you think ?
Thanks

wow lovely colours, i really have to go shopping in london, u have nice clothes.
and i agree with hkmb, it would be really good if u could make a post with "the basics a muslimah should have in her wardrobe" since it can be kinda hard to know where to begin and what's really essential to have.. thank u so much for a great blog

Salaam Jana, great post... absolutely adore the dress... and i wanted to tell you that i went into my local primark last week and they are doing those long sleeve tops that us hijabis can't do without in many different colours for only £2.50. So i thought i should let you know and maybe you can announce it... :)
