Cotton and Linen for Hijab Summer Outfit

That day was a hot kinda day. So I decide to wear an outfit that couldn’t make me suffer throughout the whole day. A hijab summer outfit, well kind of.

Cotton or linen,  pick between them was my first choice. Couldn’t choose in between so both were wore.

An oversize gingham patterns cotton shirt with different length between the back and front side. A simple linen pants. Both in pastel colors. Wore with chiffon scarf and all settle off to the shore.

Add a simple necklace from environmental jewellry and a thong from rubi than it is done.

Perfect for hot day into sea. Never been comfortable while exploring 3 islands in a day.

Nyaman banget pake yang namanya baju dari bahan katun atau linen. Apalagi buat hijaber kaya saya yang ingin mengeksplor 3 pulau dalam satu hari. Panas, berangin, dan sesekali terkena cipratan air laut.

My Kind of Daily Look with Linen

Linen fabric became my favorite since forever. Just see my post about for the love of linen. Lots of my clothes especially for daily looks made of Linen fabric. It just perfect for our tropical climate.

Kemeja oversize plus celana yang sama-sama dibuat dari bahan linen, sungguh nyaman dipakai sehari-hari. Bahan linennya sendiri saya dapatkan di Mayestik di Toko Fancy, which is saat itu sedang sale. Bahan yang biasanya 1 m dibanderol 110 ribu langsung turun harga menjadi 68 ribu. Awesome! Setelah dijahit, hasilnya sangat memuaskan. Tidak kalah dengan outfit linen dari rakuten, zara, or brand ternama lainnya.

Peplum Top and Batik Skirt for Graduation Day

It was graduation day for my kiddos who spent a year with me. They will continue their journey of learning in elementary program. What a sad and also happy day.

So the dresscode is Red and Black. I actually didn’t plan to wear this outfit. But then again, there I was, standing in a fabric store called Mumbai Textile and Hash right in Mayestik. What an unplanned situation. Finally bought 3 metres of diamond chiffon and 2 metres of batik print.

Voila! A peplum top with a batik skirts which I just literally wrapped it along my body became my outfit of the day. And there I was, get an Oscar for it. Hahaha, blaaaaah, just kidding.

Batik and Linen Top for a Wedding Party

Went to the wedding of my long lost friend, Sita in Grand Ballroom Kelapa Gading Club. reminiscence of my highschool era. We shared the same table for a year in Highschool (SMUN 70) and joined the same extended activity, TLUP * well, I’ve been dreamin’ to be one of Paskibraka Nasional back then. * We lost contact for years, so you may called her wedding as a reunion also. Congratulation Sita and Ditto. My prayer for both of you.

Untuk busana resepsi kali ini, saya sengaja mengambil tema agak tradisional. Blouse polos berbahan linen dipadukan dengan kain batik Danar Hadi yang dililit dan diikat di bagian depan. Kerudung yang terbuat dari bahan sifon ditambah aksesoris dengan shade gold menjadi sentuhan akhir tampilan kali ini.

It is easy, simple, effortless, and comfy outfit which will be my all time favorite. It is just the high heels is killing me * maklum jarang banget pakai high heels. * Untung sudah tersedia sahabat setia saya di mobil yaitu sandal andalan sejuta umat, sandal jepit! * jadi teringat betapa terkenal dan melambungnya popularitas sandal jepit swallow ketika tertangkap kamera sedang dipakai artis Korea. *

Comfortable with Linen

As Linen is one of my favorite fabric, I was getting more and more using this fabric for my everyday clothes. Love everything about Linen. Feels so comfortable with linen.

Suka sekali dengan bahan linen yang nyaman dipakai, baik untuk atasan maupun bawahan. Warnanya yang soft, dingin saat dipakai, dan efek-efek kusut yang tidak mengganggu penampilan * karena sifat linen memang seperti itu. *

Batik Sleeveless Dress

For the love of batik.

I got this batik fabric from Banyumas, Central Java. I really love the patterns and also the colors. First time I saw it, I knew I want it to be a dress. but since the length is not enough for a dress with long sleeves, I had to modified into sleeveless dress.

Somehow, I love to mix match this dress. One day I wore cardigan as outer but in another day, I wore the basic jersey shirt as inner. I also can mix match the colors as I like. Sometimes, I mix it with red, light brown, dark brown, even yellow. Not to mention, the fabric which is based on cotton, made it very comfortable to wear, especially during summer or hot day.

Oh by the way, the more you wash the fabric, the more beautiful it become.
