My Friday's Fanices::Travel::

Dubai



Today's My Friday's Fancies is all about Travel.
There are so many countries I want to travel to but decided to pick a place to have my outfit inspiration that I have already been too.
There are two reasons for this.

One: I wanted to think outside the box and not just pick the amazing gorgeous places that instantly come to my mind such as Italy, Greece, Caribbean, etc. Ugh they are all so gorgeous and I want to go to them all!
Two: make people aware of the middle eastern dress respect.

Dubai is hot as heck all year around.
So one would think to pack shorts, tank tops, bathing suits, etc.
However, you are going to want to pack the opposite.
Dubai is very conservative and as Americans we need to respect this.
So pants, light weight long sleeved shirts, light scarves, sunglasses, and most important sunblock.
Almost all of the women in Dubai are covered from head to toe so you would totally stand out if you wore shorts and a tank top.
Respect is what it's all about when you are going to Dubai.

So, my outfit here is something that is...well,  respectable.
The pants are white due to the sun being unbearable, a nice light weight colored shoe, a nice scarf to keep covered up, sunglasses, a hat to keep the sun off your face, and the oh so important sunblock to keep reapplying throughout the day.

Now, if you go to Dubai you know the guidelines of what to pack.
Dubai is gorgeous and everyone is so friendly there so enjoy the scenery and delicious food.

I really like how you chose a little bit of a different location and took the culture into account for your outfit. Love the pieces you chose!

I'm kinda obessesed with that watch. My sister in law got the same one for Christmas from my brother and I may have tried it on, oh, once or 3 times. Cute outfit!

I loved Dubai and I love this outfit! Though those nice white trousers would get ruined there as it's quite dusty....Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm your newest follower :) Looking forward to seeing more of your Friday's Fancies! xxx Malou
