It's no secret that I live for Fall weather dressing. Many of you love to point that out as I sport my chunky sweaters and boots on Instagram in the intense Dubai heat, lol - but I can't live without my sweaters and earthy neutral tones! This is a standard Melanie outfit - olive green (I think it's the number one color that compliments my skin tone), leopard (one of my hardcore wardrobe staples) and suede booties (two of my fave things in one? Suede + Boots? Yes, please).
l've been searching for the *perfect* cognac purse and found this adorable crossbody by Coach called the Legacy Mini Tanner purse. I scored it on eBay and got a great deal on it. It's my go-to Fall/Winter purse right now!
How adorable is this skinny little leopard belt? I got it at Banana Republic ages ago. (Sorry guys).
And now for the kicker: Sweater vest, jeans AND suede booties from Forever 21 (I have for the most part stopped shopping at Forever 21 but I still have some awesome pieces I've scored throughout the years). Combined I probably paid no more than $60 for all three pieces. Major win.
I'm wearing the Simply Purrrfection Scarf - one of my favorite HH's of all time, for sure. We sell a very similar print in a wrap called the Fierce Feline (sorry, the scarf is all sold out!).
We stopped for lunch at Big Chef at The Beach at JBR. One of my fave hang-out spots in Dubai.
I got the fajitas and they were amaaazing! (Disclaimer: this post is not sponsored nor are any of my posts, I genuinely blog about products/places that I really love and want to share with you all without any pressure from an outside party. That being said - you should totally try this place out if you're ever in Dubai!)
Isn't the decor awesome? I love the laid back atmosphere of this place. Photo credit: http://www.bigchefs.co.
