Today I decided to play around with this simple black button down shirt from Woolworths and try to create some different looks based on what I’ve seen on Instagram.
Let’s get to it…
1. Backwards one shoulder look
This look is real simple to achieve ( honestly they both are ). Start off by putting on the shirt -backwards off course- and don’t forget to leave one shoulder out. Once you’ve adjusted the collar and it’s lying properly, button the shirt up ( a little help wouldn’t hurt ). Take the other sleeve and wrap it around your waist and pin with a safety pin ( you could use a pretty brooch )
2. Strapless, sweetheart neckline
Button the shirt up until you’ve achieved the sweetheart neckline and everything sits tight. Take the sleeves and tie them around your waist. & voila simple as that.
Like I said these looks are simple and different. They make a statement and are easy to take a look from the office to cocktail ( or whatever 😉 ) I hope you guys found this post interesting. Keep up with me on my social media ( tagged in the sidebar ).
Hey guys, my favourite season is around the corner so I decided to share a few of my favourite pieces with you all 🙂
1. A bomber jacket I mean no one can go wrong with a good bomber jacket, this one is super padded and warm plus I love the flower details on the sleeves ( major trend ). This beautiful cropped bomber jacket is from Cottonon
2. Leather mini skirt
I think that this is just a cute piece for a night out ( paired with tights of course ). I tend to wear a lot of dark colours in winter, so this piece just adds some colour to my outfits. This skirt is from Zara
3. An oversized denim jacket Everyone needs a denim jacket, that’s all that I’m going to say. This jacket is snatched from my mums closet 🙂 4. Ankle boots Ankle boots are just so cute and are comfortable. These bad boys are from Forever 21 5. A leather jacket Every girl should have a leather/ faux leather jacket in their closet, they make an outfit look more polished and adds a little edge to your look. This one is from Zara
Thanks for checking out this post, obviously I have way more winter favourites ( the list goes on ) but I just decided to share a few. Don’t forget to check out my social media ( tagged in the sidebar ). see you later
Hey guys!!! I know I’ve been quiet for a while, that was because I was busy traveling but I’m back and have a line up of things to share with you guys.
Today I’ve decided to do a travel post ( since I’ve been traveling ). This year I visited my Sudan, where my father grew up, it was definitely an amazing experience… so let’s get to the post.
just before we started our descent into Addis Ababa. shoutout to Ethopian Airlines for the great service and hospitality on all 4 of my flights during this trip.

Photos of Sudanese weddings thanks to the museum. Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend a Sudanese wedding as I left 2 days before one was going to take place.
The dervishes, in the zone!! This is by far the most chilled version of Islam that I’ve ever seen.
VI hope that you guys found this post interesting, if you have any questions about my trip feel free to ask away in the comments. Sudan & Ethiopia are such magical places I’m definitely going back soon. I’m going to do many more travel posts in the new year as I will be traveling a lot. See you all in my next post, don’t forget to checkout my social media (tagged in sidebar) xox Suraya
Hi guys so today I’ve decided to share a few of my favourite books with you since the holidays are approaching and many of us will be traveling, so if you need some new books to read, or not sure if you should buy a book or if you just need something to keep you entertained (besides your phone) during an upcoming trip, this post is for you.
1. Fashion books
These books are related to style and have fun little illustrations of ideas and fashion dos & don’ts. The 2 I’m sharing today are related to Paris since that is one of the most classic and timeless places when it comes to fashion.
For those of you who don’t know Diane Vreeland is, she was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and as a special consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1964. So the title Empress of fashion is very appropriate.
