Holiday Blues

Hey guys….

Muaha.. do you see what I did there with the title? Yep.. it was 2 weeks ago that I was having the best time EVER on holiday in Hisaronu, Turkey (FYI.. I have a full post all about my trip.. check it out). I am suffering from some SERIOUS holiday blues guys… I just want to be back in the sun, not worrying about work and just RELAXING! If only ey? Unfortunately, real life called and it was back to waking up at 6AM, working Monday to Friday and making the most of my weekends!

One thing I was definitely looking forward to after returning back from my holiday was getting back into blogging. As I had Ramadan, and then my holiday straight after.. my poor little blog got pushed to a side… but this break has definitely helped me feel more inspired and so much more motivated to do well with my blog and make it the best I possibly can! I always have so so many people ask me how on EARTH I manage to balance a blog, YT channel AND full time work.. and I will be honest.. it does get really tough sometimes. However.. because I see blogging as my “me-time”, I look forward to working on it after work! So.. even though I WISH I was back in Turkey.. it is nice to have a routine again!

One thing that I really missed so so much was the fashion element of my blog.. I feel like my blog has been so focused on beauty recently.. so I wanted to bring back my good ol’ OOTD’S (!!). I am SO SO excited because I recently got a tripod too so I am hoping to film some Lookbook’s on my YT channel.. let me know if you would like to see these loves!

Right.. I think I have babbled on enough .. should we get onto the actual outfit Saira?

I wanted to focus this outfit on a single item that I think is absolutely essential for the British Summer. Now.. we had a STUNNING few days of very hot weather (I felt like I was back in Turkey guys), and then you blink and it is back to cloudy, windy cold days.  Oh, the joys of British Summer (ha!). Anyway… back to my fashion essential for Summer time…

… A kimono.





I bloody love kimonos.. I am obsessed with cardigans in Autumn/Winter.. and kimonos are my alternative for the warmer months! They are just SO easy to wear.. and give your outfit that instant “boho” look to it.

I picked up this beautiful blue one from George at ASDA.. YEP YOU READ THAT RIGHT! I fell in love and knew I had to have it! The print is so stunning .. and this blue colour looks gorgeous on every skintone!


I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a grey t-shirt (from where other than Primark?), some black jeggings (do I ever wear anything else), and some white loafers (another essential for Summer girls).




Also.. you guys know I am not the biggest fan of dressing up.. I much prefer to keep things casual when I go out and have my makeup more dramatic, or switch up my accessories.. so instead of my usual day bag.. I paired the outfit with a clutch instead! I LOVE this simple clutch.. I can think of SO many outfits that it would go with.. In fact…I actually used this clutch on my registry wedding (hehe).


Kimono – George @ Asda

T-Shirt – Primark

Jeggings – Zara

White Loafers – Peacocks

Sunglasses – Peacocks

Hijab – Mum’s

Clutch – LYDC* (10% anything from LYDC using the code SAIRA10)



Seriously guys.. for what is left of the summer (tehehe), go and get yourself a kimono… I can guarantee it will become one of your most worn items in the summer! They look stunning over dresses (both maxi and mini), skirts, shorts, jeans.. basically everything (ha).

Right guys.. I am going to love you and leave you.. wishing I was back in Hisaronu…

LOVE YOU ALL LOADS.. and I will see you all in my next post.

Lots Of Love,

    It is such a gorgeous look, sweetie! I love kimonos – very pretty! <3 The pattern is absolutely lovely and suits you very nicely. Oh, hon, you're having post-holiday blues and I am having non-holiday blues!! haha
    I need a break sooooo badly, I am so so tired of those early mornings and insane schedule. It's been extra busy recently. I can't wait to get away in September…. Only one month to go!!

    Love this outfit! This kimono is absolutely stunning. I love the print, and how you could definitely dress it up or down. I’ve wanted a kimono like this for ages, but I just can’t seem to find one!
