After spending 3 consecutive days taking tours of the great Pyramids of Giza (what I wore), Pyramids of Saqqara, Dahshur and the museum of Memphis (what I wore), and taking shots from every angle possible and under every light, on our day 4, we ventured out to explore the Egyptian capital of Cairo.
With our very own chauffeur driven vehicle, we hopped on to see the Egyptian museum, the Citadel, the Coptic church at old Cairo, the mountain top at Muqattam city and the famous Khan-El-Khalili market. I must admit that the mega city is dirty, clogged with vehicles at snail pace. With leary pollution, honking and pushy onlookers, it certainly is a challenging city.
Getting dressed in the morning for a day out in Cairo was no less challenging either. December weather in Cairo was a tease! It can get warm-ish at times during the day but as soon as the sun bids adieu for the day, it gets chilly specially if you are going for the sunset viewing on the mountain top of the Muqattam city. That weather reminds me of Spring in the UK.
Taking advantage of the lovely what we would call spring but winter weather in December in Egypt, I wanted to wear a dress that accentuates the charm of my individual style as well as the renewing energy of the new place and season—feminine in floral prints. This midi dress in full bloom, I feel that there is a magical energy that emanates from these large floral print of bold colors that brightens up mood instantly. I feel that although the dress has cut-out details in the front but when layered it with a long cardigan and worn with a scarf around the neck, it serves well as modest style. Since you have to dress up in a certain way in Egypt respecting its culture, I styled this dress with a pair of black opaque tights leaving no room for skin show.
Wearing my hair in a feminine milk maid braid, I finished out the look with Zara bags and shoes in identical color.
We are now slowly approaching towards Spring in this part of the world, it’s time to bring out our dresses in full bloom because a new season can mean a new start, so don’t let anything hold you back!
