Hijab Louvre sent me their pro-hijab t-shirt and at first I honestly didn't know how to style it because I'm not a t-shirt type of gal. I don't even own one and probably haven't since I was a young child because as a whole they can be quite masculine looking on me so I always stayed away from them. I did have to see how other hijab bloggers were wearing this shirt (it was sent out to a few as far as I can see) to get some ideas and decided a card-like open blouse over the top and a maxi skirt would seal the deal for me both style-wise and shape wise as t-shirts always make me look bigger than I am. The mixture of broad shoulders and a larger bust don't do well in t-shirts, hence me tucking it into the skirt at the waist and hiding the sleeves. You really have to know how to dress for your own body shape!
The complete message of the top was a little cut off in my pics so for comprehension sake I have to tell you it says Hijab is Freedom, Fierce and Faith. The colours are very soft and girly so I worked in some brown and soft pinky-peach hues in to dress it up.
I'm heading over to Malaysia for a week in a few months time with some friends for a girly pampering trip and we have mostly decided on making use of the gym hotel in the mornings while we are there, knowing that every single day we will be devouring fancy high teas and cakes galore. I don't really have any workout clothes besides a pile of cute Adidas clothing pieces that I KNOW will not fit me once the holiday time arrives and this baby is busting out of my torso so I'm thinking this top would be cute hotel gym apparel with a pair of trackies. For this reason I got the biggest size they sell which means although it is extra roomy now, it will be maternity perfect in a few months time.
On a side note - I've had this skirt for quite a few months now and have never worn it and I have no idea why because I think it is just absolutely beautiful! It is all black at the back while the front is colour blocked in very feminine colours. I just love it! I really need to wear it more often.
