Take me back

Please take me back to winter break, when wearing coats, boots and fur hats were in style. Here in Abu Dhabi, if you walk outside for 10 minutes, you will be covered in sweat. The thing is, its not even summer yet! If you ever want to come to Abu Dhabi for vacation, definitely come visit during the winter or spring time, not summer.

We are reading the “Catcher in the Rye” by J. D. Salinger right now and when our teacher asked us the simple question of where do birds go in the winter, when it gets cold, only 4 people in our class knew the answer. This blew my mind. ‘They fly south, duh’ you must think. But living in a country where there isn’t a winter season, not knowing something like that isn’t too surprising. Kinda like living here never let’s you learn how to fill your own car with gas.

My closet is composed of mostly black, but I have recently tried to veer away from that by buying pieces that are different and original. Though this outfit is black and grey, a safe and simple outfit, I decided to add a husky hat to add more of a flare. I like to follow Coco Chanel’s quote, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” It is good to have one or two items that are very different, but having to much can overdo it too sometimes. On the other hand, overdoing an outfit makes it original and makes you stand out, iris Apfel, who I love, being the best example.
