Our first ‘What I wore’ participant: Juwyriya Hersi. Juwyriya lives in Canada and runs a lovely blog called inascarf.tumblr.com. This is what she wore on the last week of March in the very cold Canada.
You know that outfit that adds a little skip to your walk, well.. This skirt has got me skipping all the way to school. I love how flirty the skirt is and with the leather jacket and a tee shirt it helps tone it down, keeping it appropriate for school.
Hijab (Scarf worn on the head by Muslim women): from Dubai
Shirt: victoria secret
Sunglasses: forever 21
Skirt: made by me
Shoes: forever 21
The mall, the mall… Date with the girls! Shopping’s the best. If there were A.A for shoppers I would be a regular attendee. Yes, I admit I have a huge shopping addiction… I just can’t help it!
Button down: Forever 21
Sweater: Stitches warehouse
The cold is brutal! But when that spring air finally hits, it could only be thanked by burying that worn out winter coat deep in the dusty corner of closets. I embraced spring with a great pair of shades and bright colors ← (autocorrect did not get the memo! I’m Canadian, it’s colour!)
Hijab: moms closet
Shirt: Stitches warehouse
Bag: moms closet
Glasses: small store on Queens street
This winter has been ruthless. Who has ever seen frozen tree-branches?!? [SHM] Only in Canada! Well this outfit is a farewell to winter. I hated that boring black jersey skirt, so I edged it up by taking my skulled scarf and belting it in front of my plain black skirt. It gives the outfit two dimensions.

Well these are some of the outfits I wore through out the week. These are also the bizarre thoughts that ran through my mind while I decide what to wear, yes, I know, I’m weird. I love to have fun with my outfits; going from a girly girl look, to an edgy rocker chick and somewhere in between is great. However, the best thing is finding that right balance between fashion and modesty. That balance enlivens me. That and a great pair of shoes, I only kid.
