"Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they'd just walk around naked at all times." - Betsey Johnson

These satin jogger pants, I feel, are a testament to Betsey's statement.

I bought these joggers ages ago, around late 2009-early 2010 when I was studying in Christchurch. I was already collecting scarves and hijab-appropriate clothing pieces back then, a good couple of years before I started donning the hijab myself.

I never felt sure about incorporating the satin jogger pants into an outfit so I've been wearing them as "house pants", resulting in them being slightly worn-out. 

Then I saw this post New York - Day 1 by my favourite blogger Betty Autier of Le Blog De Betty, in which she looked picture-perfect and cool as anything in a pair of Topshop black joggers. I decided, it's time I put them on outside the confine of my house, and as I put them on for a night out with Shah, I feel satisfied with how my outfit turned out.


I don't dress for anyone but myself, but it's always important for me that Shah approves of my outfit—only because I'm that just kind of loving, dotting wife.
