Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!

Instagram Outfits: Before & After the House Move

It's been AGES since I did an Instagram outfit round-up. Which explains why there are so many outfits in this post. These posts are from before the house move to after the house move, which explains the change in the background and scenery, haha. The new apartment is surrounded by leafy trees giving the impression that we live in a tree house in a forest somewhere, and honestly I like to think of it that way as well. You can't escape Bahrain's heat so you may as well daydream being in an Amazon rainforest instead, right? Getting back to it, here's what I've been wearing!

A lavender dress that you may have seen before in this post. We added some lace at the hem from Lace Love {Click Lace Love to follow or lace business on Instagram} to make the dress slightly longer as well as add a bit of girlie charm to a plain dress. I accessorized the dress with a floral statement necklace, a statement watch and finished with black peep-toes.

A shopping trip at the mall on the weekend calls for comfy wide leg pants and a soft tee. A big statement necklace adds a bit of interest to the polka dotted top. Pants from Canada and top from Pull & Bear.

Out for meetings on a busy {and hot!} work day means comfortable pants and a sleeveless top are a great option. I paired this collared top from Koton with floral peg leg pants from Warehouse. A pretty opal and turquoise stone pendant matches the pants and a mauve bag and pointed black strappy flats complete the look.

Weekending in a soft white button-down shirt worn over printed pajama pants and my favorite flat sandals. A cutesie heart pendant and other delicate accessories complete the look. 

I dressed up these black and white paisley pants with a deep turquoise blouse. I love the Bohemian feel of the pants so I added a tribal coin necklace and bangles to go with that feel, and finished with navy pumps to keep it looking elegant.

One of my favorite menwsear-inspired go-to business look - a button-down shirt and pants. The deep purple contrasts with the khaki of the chinos and a tan belt adds interest. I love the structure and clean lines of both the shirt and the pants. When you really want to dress to impress, go for structured everything. Shirt from Koton and pants from H&M.

I paired one of my favorite tops, this navy button-down silk blouse {which I'm sure you've seen before if you've been following me for a while} with one of my newer pieces, a white A-line skirt with embroidery at the hem. Fun fact: this skirt used to belong to my mom, who used to wear it as a traditional Indian full length lehenga. After she was bored of wearing it we decided to renovate it as a midi skirt for me. 

This is a simple look pairing a neutral color contrasted against a deep hue. The light gray of the top really brings out the richness of the burgundy of the pants. I matched black pumps to the black leather detail cuff.

A baby blue button-down is a wardrobe essential and it's a good idea to have them in different textures. I paired my cotton one with a plum midi skirt for a preppy outfit.

I'm usually not a fan of peplum tops but this one doesn't have the peplum hem standing out too much. I fell in love with the print, the material and the feminine ruffle sleeves {which can't be seen here but I'll do a full outfit post with this top}. I wore it with skinny black pants, and finished with gold accessories and metallic gold pumps. And added Mili as an accessory. 

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @TheSilverKickDiaries and keep up with my style, travel and fitness posts! {Not to mention being spammed by Insta stories of Mili's antics.}

Until the next post,
