Relaxing at Bastakiya

I want to show you a beautiful old part of Dubai called Bastakiya. If you read my OOTD Boho Chic, you remember I mentioned it. If you missed it, see it here. 😉

It is all renovated to look like it used to and it is a tourist attraction. There are museums, nice restaurants and loads of local artists have their shops there. You can browse, watch them work, talk to them and buy a unique piece of art.

Enjoy the pics! =)
(There is also a little DIY project hidden. See if you can find it! :))

Out on the streets…

Another nice place to seat and have something to eat and drink. It is also a gallery. Check out the art!

I really like the sculptures which throw different shadows. Which one is your favourite?

I would also recommend a restaurant called Arabian Tea House! I really like how it has flowers all around, and the blue of the benches and the white really gives it a nice feel. So beautiful! ^^

I have loads more pictures, but omg it would be crazy to upload them all!

It is a really cool place to visit and relax, have a bite to eat and a drink. Everything is nicely decorated and I love the bright colours!

OOTD Summer Boho

Hello guys!

How have you been?

Summer is coming here in Dubai, and I must say, I an NOT looking forward to it! I’ll be looking for every chance I can get to get out a bit.

And no more jeans. That’s why these palazzo pants are perfect! They are big, flowy, comfy and they have this boho vibe going on which I like.

And just look at the pattern!

I went simple as usual and paired it off whit a flowy, black top and black tasseled bag. I didn’t want any heels, so I just put on flats. Although, if I wear any heels, wedges would be perfect!

For accessories I just put on an arm band. Do you remember those from 90s? =D

If I didn’t have that, I would love to pair it off with something like this. I would just put on either a black cropped top or a tight black one.

I am definitely keeping my eye out for these necklaces and a crochet vest.

Anyways back to my actual outfit.
