My outfit for the second day in Dubai was considerably more chilled than the first and I couldn’t help but feel extremely giddy at being able to wear a maxi skirt. What I’d give to live in a country with a warmer climate… sometimes I almost forget I did for sixteen years of my life (Shout out to Kenya!)
The green Zara jacket is one of my favourite pieces for the upcoming summer 2k14 (thought I’d say it like that because I find it hilarious) and the khaki threads reminds me of the colour theme present throughout Balmain’s A/W 14 collection, of the latter which I was and still am a great fan of. Pairing it together with the rest of the elements proved no great feat and the ensemble overall is one that’s very pleasant for a day during which you wish to do nothing but take in sights or relax in the warmth of the loveable suns rays.
Which is pretty much what I did.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!

It’s been two weeks and then some since I left England and travelled to the Middle East. Hope everyone’s had a good Easter holiday and is as ready to delve back into reality and routine as I am. The primary part of my time away was spent in Iraq on a spiritual journey and it was surprisingly incredible! I couldn’t honestly start to express in words how amazing it was to experience the customs and culture of such a wondrous country and it’s kind people. One of my aims in life will always be to adopt a few children so as to give them the love and care that they duly deserve as well as to satisfy my own need to give to those that aren’t as fortunate as we all have been. After spending time with the street children in Iraq, I can honestly without a doubt say that I will in the future, God willing, adopt an iraqi child – they were some of the most adorable children I had ever had seen and had the pleasure to experience!
Now the second half of my holiday was spent in Dubai and that’s where I was able to work on something for my blog (I honestly missed posting on ModainLondres!)
This was the outfit for my first day in Dubai where the heat was fortunately not too stifling and the days were relaxing and carefree. I promise the next few outfits were a lot more colourful and I did stray from the monochrome colour pallet you’ve been seeing in my last few posts. >_<
Just look at the view I had from my hotel room!
(Granted the view from my parent’s room was 100% better lmao)
Hope everyone had a great time whether it was spent away or in the comfort of your own home (which I had missed!)
Rabbit Hole London Bottoms
American Apparel Top – Alternatives – RH1 & RH2
Dr Martens – Alternatives
This man’s street style was so on point. From the leather sleeve panelled hooded sweatshirt to his brogue detailed Dr Martens. The two piece shorts + pants combo from Rabbit Hole London was a piece I knew all too well, having borrowed quite a lot of their apparel for a shoot last year. Sadly the site is down for maintenance right now so the links, although they will direct you to designated page may not allow you to check out the items at this current moment. Never fear, I’m sure it will be up soon enough!
There’s not a lot I can about this look apart from the fact that it was very well put together and very minimalist – all black, all day, every day. The style of the top/bottoms are one that a lot of up and coming london street wear brands are promoting as part of their collections lately so finding alternatives shouldn’t be a problem if need be.
I really do need to be putting up a lot more menswear posts for all the fashionable men out there (as well as the women that like to look at them). The moment I saw this man I had a sense of de-ja vu as I was certain I had seen him before – perhaps he’s a model? My friend almost melted when he took a drag of his cigarette for the photo and I couldn’t help but smile at how comfortable he seemed posing for the camera.
Alors I have a bit of sad news though, I will be away for two weeks come this Sunday and so there won’t be any posts up for quite some time. However I do have a few ventures I’m looking into for future posts while away and will be ecstatic to share them with you all as soon as I am back!
Don’t forget about me my lovelies!
