My 20th Birthday!

August 20th was my 20th birthday! Jasim (my husband) and I had plans of going to the zoo or downtown and ride on the ferry with Ahmad (as Ahmad hasn't experienced either of those things), but the weather wouldn't permit. So because of the rain, instead, we went to the Mall. There I bought a few outfits, Ahmad a pair of shoes, and at the Halal grocery store we bought Jasim a thobe to wear in the house. 

 

 

Ahmad's new mickey mouse shoes!

 

 

This size medium skirt is made to hug your waist I bought for 8.99$ at the sale section in Forever 21! Because it is a medium, the skirt settles on my hips rather then my waist, which I prefer as I don't like anything emphasizing my waist. I absolutely LOVE this skirt!

 

 

This sweater is made out of t-shirt material which in turn makes it super comfy! I bought in a 1x as I wanted it to fit very loosely. JC Penny's 20$ sweater marked down to 4$!

 

 

This size medium short sleeve sweater I also bought from JC Penny's for 20$. The antique pink scarf is from Banana republic. I bought about a year ago for 11$ when it was originally a 40$ scarf!

 

 

I really like the crotchet sticth that was used for this sweater, and I adore the small braided leather belt that is weaved through the crotchet gaps.

 

 

This skirt is also a find at JC Penny's for 8$! The mediums and smalls we all too short for my liking so instead I bought a petite large. I kind of thought at first I would have to take it in, but the elastic is super tight so it stays in place!

 

 

I was really pleased to have found clothes that can change around. The two sweaters can go with either skirts!

I really had my hopes on finding a black abaya that snaps/buttons from neck to toe (so I can feed my little one) but the two that were at the Halal grocery store were either too small or too big. Maybe next time insha'allah!

    Birthday is an occasion that is really one of the most amazing part of celebration in any society and it is usually celebrated with party,gift and such other items included as parts of it. The term superioressay is usually used by students for all such essays that are really superior due to high quality contents.
