Beaches and Dreams

Earlier this summer I went to the beach with some friends… it was the best beach trip I’ve ever been on! I’ve had bad experiences as a hijabi – not knowing what to wear that wouldn’t draw too much attention or that would be comfortable to swim in and quick-drying. This time before we went, we made it a point to take a shopping trip the week before. We got silky leggings and long tops and went on our way πŸ™‚ I didn’t feel self-conscious at all and that’s because the company was so amazing. I didn’t care so much for the beach before, but I’ve found a new love.

I OWN THE BEACH, SUCKAS!

I ran into Saira and Sara, my two college friends, while at Pocahontas restaurant! SMALL WORLD, INDEED. They tried to hug me when they were soaked and my clothes had already dried. Eep!
