    What I Wore to F1 Sepang Race Day 2017: Teal Leopard Print Top, Little Black Backpack & Adidas Superstar Slip-Ons

    Zara Teal Leopard Top Zara eyelet skirt Adidas Superstar Slip-Ons
    I decided not to bother with any top-layering for the second day of my 2017 F1 Sepang experience, unlike the day before in my bird of paradise matching babydoll top and skirt and stuck with a top that I could wear just fine on its own. I wish I could just wear the trumpet skirt as is, too, but the skirt's lining was a bit short for my hijab-clad self so an extra (super thin) skirt was still needed underneath.

      Obviously the "stars" of the outfit are subjective but for me they are those gold hoop earrings and the little black backpack, purely due to the fact that this was the first time I wore both of those things. Even so, seriously though, my earrings and bag are adorable, no? Also, it appears I'm building quite the earrings collection nowadays!

      PS: In your opinion, which do you think is the "star" of this outfit?

          Shah and I didn't linger until the race ended (last F1 Race Day on our turf ever ☹) because we couldn't get seats  SO disappointed with the lack of security and the overall crap system at Sepang this year! It was too hot to stand for hours so we stayed only until about halfway through the race, leaving when we knew for sure our favourite team, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas, wasn't going to come in at first place.

          If anyone's interested to know about Race Day result: Red Bull, like last year, won the race again (it was like Verstappen's 20th birthday present to himself  he's freakin' TWENTY guysss), but at least Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton got onto the podium this year, as opposed to not even finishing the race in 2016.

          What To Wear To Formula One
          On another note, I was a Nico Rosberg fan before he left Mercedes and got to witness him climbing the podium last year when he won second place! Shah and I even almost got to meet Hamilton and Rosberg at their meet-and-great in KLCC mall a couple of days before the 2016 F1 weekend, but no luck in the end! Ah well.

                1. :-)I'm really hard pressed to pick my most favorite part of this outfit Liyana. It's all SO GOOD!! The pattern mixing of your scarf and that great leopard top are my favorite complimentary pieces but adding that cool feminine skirt to the outfit really adds that unexpected contradiction that I love in a look. You look wonderfully sophisticated, sporty and fun all at once. Love, Jude

                  1. I figured out everything about this outfit except the scarf at first; I struggled with choosing a plain red one or a printed one, and if printed one, which??

                    I'm glad you liked the mix-and-match result. This scarf is actually one of the very first scarves I bought, about 5 years before I took the "hijab plunge", AND it is also the scarf I wore on my first day as a hijabi. It's very, very special to me.
