These Cowboy Boots

Hair Accessories: Scünci Black Hair Clip
Jewelry: Call It Spring Silver Studded Jacket Earrings (2015)
Top: H&M Grey Knit Roll Neck Jumper (2017)
Bottom: Zara Snake Print High Waist Premium Jeans (haulage here)
Shoes: Bearpaw Black Suede and Leather Cowboy Boots (reviewed here)

I found a different spot to take pics for “Lookbooks” and “Outfits of the Day”. However, while the lighting in my bedroom may be dark and insufficient, over here it’s too yellow. Ugh. At least you can actually see the Snake Print on the Jeans lol Speaking of which, color-wise, nothing matched those Jeans! In the end, I settled on my favorite Grey Jumper from H&M (practically live in that thing every Winter)!

Thanks to the cropped hem of the Jeans, none of my Shoes/Boots looked right… so, I went with my Black Cowboy Boots (to keep the hem out of sight). For my lion’s mane, I took a few strands from each side and clipped them back (that’s about as “intricate” as my hairstyles get, lol) and finally for “jewelry”, I popped on some Silver “Jacket” Earrings. Just in case it got colder at night, I threw on my “Anime-esque” Green Double-Breasted Jacket from H&M (haulage here).

When we eventually met up, my favorite cousin ever so kindly pointed out that it looked like I had gotten dressed in the dark and that the only reason this worked was because “thin people could get away with wearing anything”… I stopped listening after she called me “thin”. I mean, clearly I’ve put on some weight – thanks to those ridiculously yummy Hershey’s/Snyder’s Chocolate Pretzels – and those Snake Print Jeans were doing me no favors, but still, it was nice to hear!

My outfit was a bit all over the place but at the time (Winter) I was really into this song (here) which featured dudes in Cowboy Boots, hence… dis! Also, I thought it was a bit too late (and hot) to post this, but my bestie is on vacay in Jordan and according to her snaps, it’s still Winter over there lol

Zara Haul (October)

I fell in love with these gorgeous White Boots that I saw on the local Zara website (mentioned here and here), so I’ve kinda’ been stalking Zara for a minute now. Every time I’d ask about them (with the reference number ready and everything) they’d tell me to come back in 2 weeks. This has been going on since even before the Eid Holiday (Summer) lol As you might imagine, eventually I gave up and just as I gave up, as luck would have it, I stumbled upon an equally gorgeous pair at Forever 21 (haulage here)! Now that I had a gorgeous pair of White Boots in my possession (again), I felt that whenever I do go back to Zara, I could finally go back to focusing on their clothes, as opposed to scanning all their footwear (with laser-sharp focus, in search of the aforementioned White Boots)!

Believe it or not, I was actually at H&M (part 3 of 3 comin’ up soon), with a handful of Jumpers and Sweaters in hand (or rather, in canvas bag) to try on in the Changing Room. However, I noticed Zara right across from H&M and also noted that it was almost closing time! I wanted to do a quick lap in Zara too, but I needed the full use of both arms and didn’t wanna’ be bogged down by shopping bags (so annoying). So, I did what any sane (or insane) person would do and just dropped the bag full of unpurchased H&M clothes (in a corner of the Changing Room Area) and hotfooted it to Zara!

As soon as I set foot in Zara, I was absolutely smitten with these delightful Tan Slides and out of the corner of my eye spotted the coolest asymmetrical White Top (didn’t even know if it was a dress or a tunic or a shirt, all I knew was it was gorgeous) and a pair of really cool Snake Print Jeans and two beautiful Black Dresses and on my way to pay for everything, grabbed a boring yet practical White Cami (to wear underneath some of my more see-through Tops). After Zara, I went back to H&M headed straight towards the Changing Rooms, grabbed the bag of Jumpers and Sweaters, quickly tried them on and purchased the ones I liked. And that’s how it’s done!
