I came up with a rather Boho-y summery half jelbab and skirt style for school today. It was fantastically breezy and comfortable!
This blue half jelbab is my favorite sofar, its a medium-light, cornflower-ish blue. I only got the top piece, no matching skirt so I could pair it with my Al-Mujalbaba black peachskin skirt or a Navy skirt or whatever else may strike my fancy. I threw it over a flounced, patterned skirt from Old Navy. It looks kind of “Irani Bakhtiari tribal ” style if I may say so myself, because the women wear these type of patterned flounced skirts and usually have on a long tunic with side slits, so it looks rather similar. Honestly I had never considered pairing a patterned skirt with a half jelbab since I always just wear the matching skirt that comes with the half jelbabs (if you buy the set) or at most, a black peachskin skirt…LOL. I thought maybe it would come off as kind of silly looking, but no, I really liked the urban-y, boho, unique look of the 2 items paired together.
I wore it weith light blue arm covers and a white underscarf. For in class, because they have the air cranked up, a grey cardigan. Outside it was scorching hot, the air flow was FANTASTIC!! wow!
Although I bought the skirt in the store, it can be had online! I think the skirt really is awesomely comfortable and soo breezy and light!
***Note, I’m updating my Storenvy website with some more items I wish to rehome…I also have a new “vieux rose” (ancient rose) koshibo 2 piece jelbab (with sarouel) which needs a new home, the color makes me look sickly! I’ll en’sha’Allah have it up there in a few days if anyone wants a medium toned, rose-y brown half jelbab with sarouel…lemme know…its a size 2! Really I adore it, but the color doesnt suit my skin tone AT ALL!
