Hope everyone is having a great week! This will be the last of my Dubai and Oman pics – I did a lot of R&R on the trip and took time off from work. It also helped that my phone stopped working overseas. Has anyone had that happen? My iPhone kept saying it needed to be activated – but as soon as I got back to the states it started working. I was beyond frustrated but on a positive note as the days went by I became more in tune with the relaxation element of the trip (Oman helped immensely in that aspect).
Polka dots have such a whimsy to them and the black background with the metallic shimmer made it perfect for a night out on the town. The full skirt added to the flirty feminine feel of the outfit. I played on the polka dot color and added gold accents and a neutral top in the same color family. This cool jacket was a Dubai find from an Italian brand – Pinko. The fit was spot on perfect!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I made it to Dubai and am now in Oman – has there ever been a country as beautiful as this? After the hustle and bustle of Dubai (will share posts soon), the calm serenity of Oman is absolutely intoxicating. Almost every building in downtown Muscat is white, providing a stark and beautiful contrast against the bare, rocky mountains. Then you see the coastline, the sand, and the calm and intensely blue water, all of which have a wonderful calming effect. I will be honest – I definitely could have stayed for much longer and can’t imagine ever growing tired of the natural beauty.
Here is an outfit I wore to dinner. This skirt is perfect for a fun night out – the high low skirt is festive and extremely fun to wear. I love pairing black and blue – with the touches of mixed metals, I felt the outfit was spot-on perfect for the locale and our wonderful traditional Omani dinner.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! You know I love leather (see here and here) and this trend is still going strong for summer. I came across this skirt, and with temperatures soaring in Houston, it is a great way to indulge in the leather trend in a comfortable way. The midi skirt has been around for a while and it can be a bit challenging to wear due to the length for me because of my small stature. I added the neutral blush pumps to help elongate my legs. Depending on your skin tone – a neutral shoe can range from a light beige to a pink to a brown. I would advise a color that closely blends into your skin tone.
