Work Wear & Boutique Al-Khaleejia

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I love to look presentable anywhere I go (other then when I visit my family which is usually in my P.J's) so work is no exception. Both wardrobes are similar in style and the only difference would be the price. I do not like to spend exaggerated amount on clothing that will a) be exposed to dirty little kids fingers all day and b) will be washed on a weekly basis. I wear my work clothes only once before I throw them in the dirty hamper as they are pretty grubby by the end of the day and I need them clean  the next day to be able to pray in them. Here I am wearing a cheap sleeveless blouse that is in the mullet style. I have another two in navy and peach. This was such a bargain having cost me only $7.






I don't normally wear jewellery to work but I just had to wear this gorgeous personalised bracelet sent to me by Boutique Al-Khaleejia. It is sterling silver with a super fine chain and a dainty personalised word in Arabic along the middle. I have noticed that the blogger world has really embraced the whole Arabic writing in fashion look so this bracelet is right on trend.
The reason why this bracelet is so special to me is because of what is written. Can anyone tell me what it says? :)

  2. I think the real star of your outfit is your headscarf. It ties the whole outfit together in a really nice way ;)

    About the bracelet, that's an odd word!! It looks like it would be pronounced Mikeel...Mikel? Not sure if that's an Arabic word really? See what the others think...
