We’re in the throes of a baking hot summer in Dubai at the moment. And while September generally sees the temperature drop a teeny, tiny bit by the end of the month, the intense humidity gives us a slap in the face to let us know that there’s still some way to go until ‘winter’ arrives.
Not that the adverse weather conditions affect my wardrobe choices of course 🙂
Generally, I live in black/dark wash jeans, pointy flats, floaty shirts and t-shirts and converse. These staples are busted out every week, whether I’m at work or mincing around the house.
And at the weekend, it’s basically the same – except I ditch the shirts and pointy shoes and focus solely on t-shirts and Converse – just like this weekends ensemble.
I wore my current favourite jeans on an excursion to Dubai Garden Centre this morning: Topshop Lucas Jeans – which I honestly can’t recommend enough. Slouchy, comfy but cut close enough that they still give you a nice shape. I love the distressed patches on the knees and basically everything else about them!
And I flung them on with a much-loved t-shirt from Sundry, a brand that I really have a lot of time for. I came across them on Shopbop about two years ago, and then subsequently realised their stuff is stocked on ASOS too (but Revolve currently has the best selection) – amazing t-shirts, sweaters and loungewear. Beautiful quality, and they last forever and ever, even when you wear them to death like I do.
What’s your weekend uniform? Are you as obsessed with wearing jeans as I am?
I know it might seem strange that I live in jeans when most days the temperature here hits 40 degrees or higher, but trust me – everyone here dresses like this. We’re all in denial 🙂
