THE WEEKEND IN SHORTS

THAlign CentreE CASUAL WEEKEND LOOK IN SHORTS, BLAZER FROM ZARA AND TANK TOP FROM MANGO.

WEEKEND IS GREAT TIME TO LOOSEN UP, SKIP THE HAIR DRYER AND MAKE UP :)
OR IF YOU LIKE, JUST APPLY A LITTLE CONCEALER AND BENEFIT'S BENETINT ON YOUR CHEEKS AND LIPS FOR ADDED COLOUR. YOU MAY ALSO OPT FOR SOME LIP TINT WITH SPF TO PROTECT YOUR LIPS.

BOUGHT THIS MILITARY GREEN SHORTS FROM THE TIANGGE IN GREENHILLS WHEN I WENT HOME FOR A HOLIDAY. GOT 3 PAIRS FOR PHP 500 (AED 45; USD 11)

"THE ITALIANS DO IT BETTER," I ALWAYS SAY, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SHOES AND BAGS.

I PURCHASED THESE YELLOW WEDGES CLOSE TO MY APARTMENT IN PORTO GENOVA WHILE I WAS STUDYING IN MILAN IN 2008. THESE BROUGHT ME COMFORT FOR 8 HOURS WHILE ATTENDING THE OUTDOOR UMBRIA JAZZ FESTIVAL.TALK ABOUT STYLE AND COMFORT.

BAG IS FROM DOLCE AND GABBANA BOUGHT IN 2008 AS WELL.


The weekend is a great way to experiment with different looks, time for let's say, a more relaxed look for a movie night, a more trendy night out look for a night out with your girlfriends. I chose to dress up my military green short shorts and a tank top with a dress coat to make it more appropriate for a movie night in the mall.

FYI, although Dubai is an open city where you can basically wear anything that is in fashion, as respect for its tradition, and to some degree religion, I chose to not to reveal too much skin, hence, just focusing on my pins instead of exposing the shoulders and also the legs. :)
