unisex trainers. that is all.
Aldo has come out with the Aldo Mx trainers in a range of pretty must-have shades of the season! [white, black, soft pink, light grey, beige, light tealy green, and red]
Literally a trainer which looks slick AF without the extras, just a chic clean-cut shoe with which the styling options are endless! They’re categorized by women/mens in terms of sizes, but the shoe style itself stays exactly the same which is super neat! (cue couple ootds #twinning)
I was sent the white pair by the lovelies at Aldo, and tbh my eyes had to adjust to how impeccably white they looked in the box haha (my converse are due for a wash) mamas main concern was how I was going to wear them without getting them dirty lawl.
Styled them with this gorg two-piece from Zara which had me feeling pretty shofishticated when I tried it on (I know its spelt incorrectly..!); don’t quite own a ‘suit’ per say in me wardrobe, which I convinced myself every teacher should have (right?!) et voila!
Also super in love with me belt bag and felt it added to the street-chic look/vibe thingamajig I was going for and just pulled everything together really! Def upped the look of the trainers even more so when paired with the two-piece which is more commonly paired with heels or loafers etc.
Find the collection online and in-store now, and share how you remix #AldoMx your trainers! xo.
I had other plans for this Zara dress, something along the lines of massive turban, rolled up sleeves and trainers, maybe some denim?! but then the lovely Manal (@chinutay) sent me a few scarves from her collection (@chinutayco) (which are oh so beautiful by the way!) and I got super excited to put something together as an excuse to wear one *insert shy monkeyface emoji*
This is actually the first time I’ve ever been gifted or sent scarves by a brand/company, and maybe rightfully so because I’m quite particular with what goes on my head in terms of material, length etc. haha but eep, these are perfect! They’ve got the right amount of stretch and more than enough material to work with! Manal’s packaging is also super cute and personalized with a handwritten message and sprayed with her signature scent which smells divine mashallah x Haven’t experimented using them as turbans yet but uber excited to do so! I’ve got ‘Jaipur’ on me head which had me reminiscing about a recent trip to India which led to me going through photos, prompting a sit down of a potential Mumbai post coming at you real soon inshallah! xoxo
P.S – THE DRESS HAS POCKETS GUYS!
Mama took the cake for the number of opinions she had on this look [“what bone did you break?” “you look like a mummy” “I don’t like your shoes” “why are you wearing a bandage” etc etc etc!] but I kinda sorta loved it! I’ve been wanting to sport an overlay piece on top of a button down for a while but felt super weird and meh whenever I tried them on, not to mention uncomfortable and too layer-ish lol but woke up one morning and said meh. Just do it #nike #notsponsored . Tried an alternate turban look for this one, and totally felt uncomfortable and a tad weird at first [because of the overlay not the turban lol] but promise I embraced it! Thought I’d share and inspire even one of y’all to not give a rats bum and try something that might be outside of your comfort zone because life’s too short to not try new things isn’t it?!
I was contacted by ALDO about a potential collab literally a few days before heading back to Kuwait and was gutted because there was no way to get postage to me in time etc. etc. but a million and one thank you’s to ALDO and the lovely Phoenix and Vivianne for being super accommodating and patient with Kuwait’s postage system for ickle me! x
Everyone needs a black flat in their life. And if its a black pointed flat with gold detail aand a bit of a gold heel, consider yourself #winning! I absolutely love how the criss-cross ankle strapping alongside the gold can instantly pull any look together and super excited to pair these with some other outfits!
ALDO are currently sporting a few super chic styles ranging from your everyday flat to the essential ankle boot, perfect transition pieces between autumn and winter! Be sure to follow them on instagram (@Aldo_Shoes) and pop into your nearest store for a sneaky peek! xoxo #AldoCrew #AldoMovesMe
