It was somewhat a mild, sun-washed Friday afternoon with an azure sky and a (very) few fleecy clouds, so Allan and I seized the opportunity of taking a long drive to Abu Dhabi for a pleasant, albeit very short, escape – and by “pleasant escape” I mean taking a stroll in YAS Mall 😛 we explored every inch of the mall, stopping along the way to grab a quick bite and take a few snapshots of me and of anything that interests us… but mostly of me, hehe. After almost 5 hours of walking through every shop, we decided to dash off to a nearby park to catch the last rays of sunset for a quick photoshoot. Shortly after that, we headed back to Dubai feeling a bit exhausted but extremely happy to have been given the golden opportunity to spend time together. Allan and I capped off the night with a refreshing glass of pomegranate-orange juice which he lovingly prepared.
Anyway, I’m the breed of person who dresses for any occasion. A simple out-of-town date had me wearing this cute separates which I recently purchased from my new favourite online shop called Reformation – they make killer clothes that don’t kill the environment! Bearing in mind my perennial penchant for anything off-shoulder, I fell inlove with this ensemble at first sight, although it took me 3 long days to actually hit the Purchase button. I was very impressed with the ultra fast delivery of my goodies – got it within 3 days of ordering it! I was even more giddy to my toes when I wrapped my hands around it. I took some time feeling the fabric with my fingers and scrutinizing every millimitre of it. It was different to my touch, a good kind of different. I was so delighted when I tried it on – the fit was perfect and depending on my mood, can be dressed up or down. On this occasion, I paired it with my favourite flat slide sandals and topped it off with a panama hat for that casual chic look.
Note: Reformation so easily topped the charts of my go-to online shop.
Another note: I had a kimono on while walking around the mall 😉
