Forever21 Black Cape Blazer Black Studded Abaya Dress
I usually wear my abayas as is, so it's a pleasant surprise even to myself when I saw how well this modern cape blazer matched this traditional abaya dress (the abaya was my Eid Al-Adha outfit in 2016). This abaya may be studded but it's still relatively simple, so I'm loving how a lot cooler and more dramatic the whole pairing became — very fitting for my birthday outfit.

(Oh, yes, I'm just going to casually announce that I celebrated my 32nd birthday ten days ago. No biggie.)

I bought this cape blazer like TWO YEARS ago but couldn't find the perfect occasion to wear it. I generally love cape blazers but oddly this is the only one I've ever liked!

I really thought my first time wearing it would be to a fancy dinner or symphony orchestra or something, with maybe sleek pants and chunky heels but, nope; it was to be after attending an afternoon wedding and before I had (birthday) pancakes and (birthday) truffle fries for tea (my kind of tea anyway) at a favourite restaurant.

As cool as cape blazers go though, I definitely have to give some of the credit to this leopard-print scarf which is one of my ALL-TIME favourites, and also: that little pyramid bag definitely doesn't get as much use as it deserves, really.
