This is the season to escape the malls & get eclectic with your outfits with the ever changing (although generally warm) weather! Because of the occasional desert wind that makes its way here to remind us that it’s winter after all, a jacket can come in handy and you can satisfy that secret desire of yours to put on some of your favorite winter pieces – all while still sporting your mini shorts! Or if you’re at the beach (yes that’s a winter activity here) and that breeze gets too strong then it’s time to cover up with your carefully selected kaftan for that oriental beach look!

Après la pluie ☔️ 🇬🇧… Saadiyat 🌴☀️🌴
I know it’s been a while… but life’s determined destiny overpowered my wider family in the past few months with a few sudden events and we’ve been adjusting to a new reality all while moving to a new corner of the world (that part was pre-planned – oh well as much as we pre-plan anything in our spontaneous household i.e a couple of months earlier for a move!)… Abu Dhabi whose growth, vision and ease-of-living became irresistible (and no not because I got obsessed with “Sex & the City 2”)! Part resort-living, part Oriental fantasy, tonight I celebrate finally feeling like Saadiyat island is my new home… and for that I’m blending into the theme!

👙 Beach Party Look 👛
OOTN está listo! Everyone likes a little black dress with statement accessories for a night out, hence I thought that I’d mimic that classic LBD look for my beach party. A little black swimsuit and a recent D&G stone studded clutch purchase I didn’t get a chance to style yet. Of course since the sun will still be up (it gets dark ridiculously late in Marbella) hat + sunnies are a must to make a decent entrance (+ protect from the sun!)😉
Striking 🔵 Blue
When basking in Marbella’s sweltering Mediterranean sun, I like to return the favor and reflect back some sunshine! Latex swimsuits are not only a great match to your mirror sunglasses for that modern slick look but they are also unique in that they’ll never look wet after your pool / sea dip as the water just slides off the latex 💦
2Kids ➡️ 1Piece
Long shunned by a younger me as dated and dull, one-piece swimsuits have not only made a comeback in fashion generally but I have found myself naturally leaning towards them now that I have two kids to minimize perpetual wardrobe malfunctions. Thanks to the many original one-pieces these days (with retro looks being my favorite) you can still make your fashion beach splash while splashing in peace with your kids!
