In the Mood For A Hood

The weather is so good nowadays in the Kingdom that you can't miss a beautiful morning to enjoy  the early breeze and sunshine outside which is exactly what I did last weekend in Corniche. 

For a long walk on that day, I decided to throw myself in the following:

Hooded Jacket: Zara, Corniche, Al Khobar, KSA
Net Sweatshirt: Bossini, Corniche, Al Khobar, KSA

As I looked myself at the mirror, I knew something was missing. A bold statement necklace to amplify my look. You've got to look chic anytime and anywhere girl!

A different look when the hooded jacket is off. Besides, its easy to cool down when you're already feeling the heat from any activity.

I hope you like it guys!

These Boots Are Made For Walking At Al Gosaibi Village

Sorry guys! As you may have noticed I've been away for a long time as I've been busy renovating my look as my brother's exact word was hehe!  I am back and never been more excited to share my fashion interests as well as share my favorite hang-outs in the Eastern Region.

Its a great weather this weekend and with my new pair of boots on my rack, I couldn't wait to have them walked on to one of my favorite places, Al Gosaibi Village where coffee shops, restaurants and high end shops are housed in altogether.

Al Gosaibi Village

Winter in the kingdom is unique in such a way that elements like the coldness, wind and dust all come together which brings us the challenge of choosing the right gears in order to look comfortable and stylish at the same time.

My eyes have been paying attention to hoodies which have evolved into many different styles. Zara,  particularly have turned the hoodie into a modern fashion staple for menswear and its a must have. Take a look at some below:

A little history of the hoodie:
The garment's style and form can be traced back to Medieval Europe when the normal clothing for monks included a long, decorative hood called a cowl attached to a tunic or robes, and a chaperon or hooded cape was very commonly worn by any outdoors worker. The hooded sweatshirt was first produced in the United States starting in the 1930s. The modern clothing style was first produced by Champion in the 1930s and marketed to laborers working who endured freezing temperatures while working in upstate New York. The term hoodie entered popular usage in the 1990s.
The hoodie took off in the 1970s, with several factors contributing to its success. Hip hop culture developed in New York City around this time, and the hoodie's element of instant anonymity, provided by the accessible hood, appealed to those with criminal intent. High fashion also contributed during this era, as Norma Kamali and other high-profile designers embraced and glamorized the new clothingMost critical to the hoodie's popularity during this time was its iconic appearance in the blockbuster Rocky film.
By the 1990s, the hoodie had evolved into a symbol of isolation, a statement of academic spirit, and several fashion collections. The association with chavs or neds in the UK developed around this time, as their popularity rose with that specific demographic. Young men, often skateboarders or surfers, sported the hoodie and spread the trend across the western United States, most significantly in California. The rise of hoodies with university logos began around this time.Tommy HilfigerGiorgio Armani, and Ralph Lauren, for example, used the hoodie as the primary component for many of their collections in the 1990s. A crystal-studded hoodie made by rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs was acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
