When Life Gives You Lemons

Hey everybody!

I'm so excited for spring, even though Dubai doesn't experience "spring time" weather. We stay pretty warm here year round. In honor of the vernal equinox, I put together a citrus themed outfit. I've been itching to wear my cute lemon jeans for months! I added on coral or tangerine accessories, down to the lip gloss! This outfit is very comfortable but still looks put together!

I hope you enjoyed!

Afternoon in Miracle Gardens

Hi everybody!

This Sunday my family and I enjoyed a day out at Dubai Miracle Gardens.  It's a beautiful little garden with flowers of all colors and varieties. It's open seasonally, so we jumped at the opportunity to spend one of our last cool weekends in Dubai outside.

First, we stopped at a cute little cafe called Shakespeare and Co. It's decorated in a beautifully whimsical manner - think Victorian Era meets Alice in Wonderland. We ordered pastries and drank iced caramel macchiatos. They also offered macarons, one of my biggest obsessions! I'm definitely returning soon.

How fitting Marie Antoinette should grace my placemat! "Let them eat cake!"

Our actual destination for the day was Dubai Miracle Gardens. The weather was nice, and the sky was reliably cloud-free. I adore flowers, and was in flower heaven here! I really was in awe of the structures they managed to construe out of flowers. How in the world do you turn daffodils into dragons?! Also, the flower colors went nicely with my outfit, and they photographed well.

I hope you all enjoyed!

Ivory Skulls & Olive Paisley

Hey everybody!

Today's outfit is a great transition outfit for me as Dubai charges full-on into the heat of spring and summer. I think it would be great for a concert or all day event, because the pieces are breathable, and also have a cool vintage factor. The jeans are my favorite part, because the olive green pattern paisley print is a bit reminiscent of 70s patterns. I also adore the skull tank top, because it makes me feel ten times edgier than I am! To roll with the edgy vibe, I also mixed metals in my jewelry.

I hope you enjoyed!
