HIJAB FASHION SUMMER

Pretty peaches and colorful Pastels. I’ve totally been feeling this Midnight Blue and wanted to incorporate it into my Summer Fashion Inspiration Set. I know Summer is usually about bright colors but every now and then a contrast color actually ‘pop’s your overall look.

Working My Hijaab 3 – Turkish Inspired

I wanted to try something new and have been really inspired by the way Turkish women wear their hijaab.
