Red + Gray and My Desperate Wait For Eid

I can't believe Ramadan is half over already. I can't wait for it to be over completely. My sleep cycle is a disaster at best, and I feel like I'm not able to get any work done at all. For a workaholic that's super frustrating. I often dream about going away for a month long vacation during Ramadan but we all know that's not going to happen because a) a month's holiday is too long and b) I'd miss my cats too much. So here I am, desperately waiting for Eid to come and for life to go back to normal.

This red top is one of my favorite pieces designed by my mother and me. I love it because of it's big billowing sleeves and of course, because it's the perfect shade of red. The beaded lace {from our latest venture Lace Love} adds a pretty touch and breaks up the plainness of the color. I paired the top with gray high-waist wide leg pants from ASOS. The material is a cool linen mix. Even though the top and pants are both loose, the pairing works. The flow of the top is balanced out with the structure from the pants, especially the high waist and pleat details. I had done a similar red and gray look with the same top some time back, but I paired it with a gunmetal gray skirt instead of dove gray pants. If you'd like to check it out, click HERE.

I finished with lacey metallic baby blue heels from the same place. I kept the accessories to a bare minimum- oval zircon stud earrings and a ring to match, since the lace already adds a bit of bling. This is a simple look for the office but pretty and feminine at the same time. It would transition well for a night out with an envelope clutch instead of a big statement bag.
