My modest look: stars and stripes

I thought I would share with you my recent modest, hijabi appropriate looks which I wore when a family member left for a visit to Mecca. It's such a spiritual journey and definitely one I would like to undertake, it is of course obligatory as a pillar of my religion. I love these occasions as the entire family gathers to wish the travellers well on their journey and also to soak up some spiritual inspiration.

I always have difficulty wrapping my scarf and have been checking out tutorials and pics from fellow bloggers who were kind enough to share some tips. Here are some pics of how I 'managed' to wrap my scarf (turban), and ensured that it stayed in place!

I am wearing my #Scarfstop star print scarf, which has now become one of my favourite scaves, and a striped maxi bought ages ago at Truworths.

I was wearing:
Scarfstop scarf
Country Road cardigan
Truworths maxi dress
Trenery belt
Country Road pumps
Necklaces: Pink-SassDiva, Beads- the Space
Earrings: Sass @ Stuttafords
Bracelets: Honey & Guess
Sling studded bag: Wardrobe
Ciao for now,
RuBe xoxo
