And just like that, another Ramadan has come and gone. It always blows my mind how quickly this beloved month just flies away. We spend weeks preparing for its arrival both mentally and physically, worried about how hard it’ll be because the summer days will be so long but once fully immersed, you realize it’s easier than anticipated and you actually wish time would slow down. This Ramadan was particularly rough for me because between the migraines I got almost daily and the infection in my gums due to my wisdom teeth growing in — I felt as though I couldn’t be as focused and accomplish as much as I wanted. Despite all of that, however, I do feel I have made some significant positive changes within myself, formed habits I hope to never let go of and have grown more as a person spiritually all in just 30 days. Above all though, I’ve improved my love and understanding of and relationship with God.. and at the end of the day, that’s really what Ramadan is all about isn’t it?
I truly pray that God grants us the opportunity to witness this blessed month yet again and with it all of its mercy and light.
Onto the outfit now, shall we?
This antiqued gold and cream ensemble is particularly special to me because my crystal studded chandelier-esque clutch was a gift from my sister and the delicate embroidered cigarette pants were given to me by my mom. Everything came together so beautifully and I just love how chic and trendy this outfit is.
Since Eid is a special time that is meant to be celebrated with family and loved ones, and by incorporating both pieces into my outfit, it’s kind of like having them with me despite not being able to actually celebrate together since we all live in various cities throughout the world. Hopefully we’ll all be able to celebrate together one day soon!
Wishing each and every one of you dolls a very special Eid complete with lots of love and yummy food! Eid Mubarak!
