So today, as I was shuffling through my wardrobe trying to figure out what to wear to Costco and the Post Office in this crazy, itsy town we live in…I wanted to wear an overhead…preferably one of my colored overheads from France (Algerian overhead) but since I recently got this purple butterfly style which comes to almost the calves and is worn over a very A-line, matching skirt, I especially wanted to wear that. I love how it looks, BUT, I’ll be frankly…I am *not* a skirt person…never was, never has been…I am a pants person…I love my jeans…I very rarely ever wear a skirt. Even when I wear a jilbab, abaya or overhead it’s solely over pants.
Anyway I came up with this ensemble…it looked pretty smashing imho, I wish I could have had a picture taken…kind of boho, urban and unique quite remaining very covering and modest.
Basically I took the butterfly style top part of the set and wore it over my Shukr lengha jeans with purple flats and a funky Jareer Bookstore canvas tote (from Saudi) and I had a purple satin “bone” underscarf which peeped out, and some funky chunky rings…voila. My hubby said it looked almost the same as wearing a calf length poncho with a matching maghneh. Big perk was…was still an overhead overgarment…but kinda made a bit funky and different.
Lemme know what you think… Oh may I add that one perk to the Shukr Lengha pants (and any uber wide legged pant) is that they cover as good as a modest skirt but with the comfort of pants…like when I was in graduate school I lived in my Lengha jeans and serious everyone thought they were a skirt. LOL)
…I’m not a Polyvore fiend…so my very rare sets tend to be pretty basic and to the point…hope no one minds!
