Egypt Lookbook: The Gypsy Princess

October 27, 2016

"She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city."

I always say that I am born with a gypsy soul. In fact I am a gypsy soul. I want to be everywhere. I am someone who cannot be chained down.

So today's outfit is very much gypsy inspired. So many people told me I looked like a princess of the deserts, I decided to name this look The gypsy princess or as I learnt in arabic, the Amira Badaweyya look. ❤️️

So I wore this outfit the day we were supposed to visit the pyramids. I knew this would be the most important day of my trip so I wanted to look my best with perfect hair and makeup. But I had such a busy itinerary everyday I couldn't even wash my hair and we got so little time for sleep that it's very difficult to get up before the wake up call and start dressing up. So I did minimum makeup and did absolutely nothing to the hair. But I guess that just added to the look as I looked more carefree.

So coming to the outfit, I wore a beautiful crochet maxi dress in off white color and paired it up with the embroided black sandal. The only piece of accessories was my dream catcher earrings with purple feathers in it. I didn't do much but whatever I did I made sure I add to the gypsy feel.

What I am wearing:
Dress: KOOVS
Sandal: Bangkok
Dream catcher earrings: Blueberry

Now coming to some  tips:

A sleeveless dress is not the best idea for Egypt. Because it's so sunny you are definitely going to get tanned. And I could see the difference in colour in few hours. So you should carry a cover up. But then I literally stopped caring about my skin tone so I didn't mind getting tanned. It was a special day and I was very happy. I was enjoying so much that these things didn't matter anymore. And somehow I felt beautiful. Like this was the first time I loved my skin the way it is and I felt I looked more beautiful once I started loving it.

But carrying an umbrella or a hat is a great idea anyway.

Use sunscreen.

Drink a lot of water and moisturize. You will get dehydrated very easily.

So I hope you liked this post.
