How wonderful it was to be wandering around one of the greatest wonders of the Ancient World of the Greatest Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. The country where they claim ‘it all began’, either intentionally or due to negligence, kept maintaining the majestic Pyramids in a very rusty and dusty situation. Rain or pain, dust or dry, we however always knew to put the best foot forward like the ancient Pharaohs. On our day 2, we embarked on our own exploration of the Pyramids trio along with the Sphinx. I found myself roaming ’round the great pyramids of Giza in December weather in the most cozy chunky knit poncho.
In winter, I’m more of an outfit layer-er, so when the temperature drops, I love throwing chunky knit sweaters or ponchos over dresses or bodycon jumpers to stay cozy.
This layering game worked well with Egypt’s cultural restrictions on what-to-wear. The more layered you are, the less attention you draw from curious onlookers.
This oversized knit poncho was layered on top of a light black polo neck jumper and paired with the only pair of black pants in my suitcase- a glossy leather pants.
Hair in an updo, I finished out this day look with gold finish layered necklaces, rings, tribal inspired bangles and a bold orange lip.
Top tip: Keep your hair in an updo, and if possible carry a scarf when visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza. It’s dusty beyond a point your hair and skin can tolerate.
