One of the things I love most about living in the UAE is the amount of public holidays we get. Last week, we got another one so my friend and I decided to head down to Abu Dhabi for a spa weekend at Jumeirah Etihad Towers. This was my getaway outfit - denim on denim, with my most comfortable pair of heels yet - (watch me sashay in motion in the video below)
These Steve Madden heels are a welcome to my wardrobe - high enough to elongate the legs beautifully, yet the block heel makes it so comfortable to walk around all day in. Plus, that gold heel makes any casual outfit look like you put in a bit effort, which I certainly didn't for an hour and a half taxi ride to Abu Dhabi!
I really like that the chambray shirt gave the outfit a deceptive denim on denim look.
Chambray Shirt - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop Leigh Jeans
Tote Bag - Fiorelli (sold out but more available at the link)
Bracelet - Mango
"Not all those who wander are lost…" ever since I saw this quote by J.R.R Tolkein on Tuulavintage's blog, it is the first thing that crosses my mind whenever I spot a beautiful view on my travels. It was also exactly what I was thinking when my friend took the above shot against the background of the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
I'm still that little kid who gets excited by the view of the sea even when it is not particularly blue, who cannot wait for the plane to land so I can step on foreign soil, and who hardly ever wants to go back home. Just stepping out of my normalcy takes me back to that age and that is why I love to travel so much! Although Abu Dhabi is only down the road from me, it was still nice to take that break from Dubai and explore new scenery especially as it was only my second time there! More Abu Dhabi posts to come, in the meantime, here is my outfit of the day video x
