HH Style Guide: Chunky Sweater + Neutrals at Market OTB Dubai

It's probably clear by now how much I love myself a good sweater. At one point, I used to buy up to 15 sweaters in one season, but now, as I've gotten older and much more deliberate about the things I buy, I try to not to exceed two or three and make sure I focus more on quality and fit.

This was my one sweater splurge from this past Fall that I got from Club Monaco while I was home in Detroit. I literally *live* for sweaters like these. The knit, the oatmeal color, the little slits on the side... just stop.

I paired it with my jeweled collar top, boyfriend jeans and suede pumps, all from - you guessed it - J.Crew.


Of course the ensemble isn't complete without my Haute Hijab - the Midnight in Paris Scarf, and my new purse I got for my 5th year Anniversary! This purse has literally been my dream purse since as long as I've been into fashion so to actually get it was *huge* for me.

Market Outside the Box or Market OTB was a pop-up-shop event sponsored by the Dubai Shopping Festival or #mydsf in Southridge Park where local designers came together to showcase their non-mass produced goods. Vibrant containers were transformed into mini boutiques selling the hottest fashion, jewelry and home goods of the region.

There was loads to do with entertainment, music, food, shopping and of course, lounging in the sun Dubai style.

Market OTB also featured some of the hottest new cafes, bakeries and restaurants.

Of course I caught up with my girl Noor of Liliaiya at her container where she showcased her second capsule collection!
