I’m busting out all my semi-winter clothes at the moment as the weather here is lovely and chilly. I know the words ‘lovely’ and ‘chilly’ usually don’t go together (unless you’re talking about sweet, sweet Pinot Grigio) so let me explain. Living in the Middle East the majority of the year is like being stuck inside an oven without a fan. You might think ooh a nice warm oven? No no – think searing hot not-working-properly oven with temperatures in the region of 40 – 50 degrees celcius. Yeah, fun times. Sooo when the temperature drops here you can imagine the excitement that ensues; hello (half-assed) winter wardrobe!
I say half-assed because it’s not full blown winter here obviously so I make do with light knits, cigarette combats and lots of cute flats and kitten heels. That’s what I was wearing today when we went on a road trip to Oman; a light grey knit from Zara with lace detailing on the arms, green cigarette combats also from Zara and leopard print flats from Bershka. I contemplated throwing a scarf nonchalantly around my neck but it wasn’t that cold so I decided against it. I did throw some bling in to the mix though, in the form of a Michael Kors watch, star spangled bracelets from Meemo Space in Bahrain, Topshop love heart ring and a hand twisted arabic gold ring The Husband gave me.
All in all it was a lovely relaxing day, so relaxing in fact that I didn’t even think to take any pictures! Lots of tea and coffee stops on the road trip, plenty of sightseeing and sand dunes, four wheel drive in the desert, learning how to say Happy New Year in Arabic and a happily snoozing baby on the journey home. Perfect 🙂
What did you all get up to today?
