Oman Traveloutfit Nr.2: How to avoid the tourists


Hi guys,

As I mentioned in my last post, the country of Oman ( which is actually around the size of Germany! ) is currently going through some major changes. It slowly adapts to western standards, which has its pros and cons, it also means that while it is still a hidden gem 
at the moment, tourism is getting bigger every year. In my experience, most tourists stay around Muscat or Nizwa, but even there it is still extremly quite compared to other places like Iceland. If you choose to travel further, chances are high that you won`t see any other travellers for days, but if you want to enjoy sights like the Bimmah Sinkhole or Wadi Shab on your own, plan ahead is Always a good decision:

- go early in the morning, people tend to arrive at around 10 am and there aren`t many parking spots anywhere
- plan your route to avoid fridays and weekends at popular spots, locals like to visit them too on these days
- if you`re in Muscat, check for cruise ships as they tend to flood the city with tourist but they will leave all at once too
- if a group arrives with you, sit down and drink some tea. Wadis are big so you won`t see them again and have it all for yourself










Love,

Oman Traveloutfit Nr.1 : How to dress as a female traveller in muslim countries

Hi guys,


As you may have seen on my social media, this february I`ve spent a week in the middle east, in Oman to be exact. A destination not overrun by tourists yet, in the middle of big changes and inhabited by the friendliest people I`ve ever met. Despite being a quite modern country  and slowly adapting to a more western style of life, it still is a sign of respect to dress modest and to cover your shoulders, clevage and knees as a women. We shot quite a few of my outfits while we were there and I can`t wait to share them with you, maybe it will give you some inspiration on how to stay true to your style but adapt to the dressing standards in muslim countries. 

My go to were maxi dresses and kimonos, they are light so you don`t overheat but cover everything necessary in a few seconds. For sleeveless dresses, I just wore a crop top, a kimono or a light sweater over them. Many omani women like to dress themselves either colorful or black, so you will fit in no matter if you want to go with a more grungy black or combine your favorite gypsy pieces.

 Some easy styling tipps:
- wide pants with tops or sweaters that cover shoulders and clevage
- maxi dresses, wear a bralette under them or cover the clevage with a loose scarf or crop top , if its sleeveless combine it with a kimono or cardigan
- choose light fabrics, many muslim countries are in warmer regions so it can get hot but make sure they aren`t see through
- crop tops are great to cover clevage over jumpsuits or maxi dresses
- Always have a kimono or cardigan and a scarf with you in case you feel uncomfortable and need to cover up a bit more, or if you want to visit a mosque and need to cover your hair

Festival Outfits 2018

Hi guys,

Its already march. And here I am, welcoming all of you that are still around or recently found my little space on the internet. I barely was able to keep up with all the effort blogposts require but now, finally, there are nearly a dozen posts waiting to get published and tons of amazing plans for the year being finalized! This blog will mostly concentrate on fashion, an alternative lifestyle and a deeper discussion of topics I talk about on social media. If you want to see everything travel related, head over to A call to the dreamers and if you`re interested in my photography portfolio, click here.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I attended Sziget Festival in 2018 and 2016, but this time I decided to take my camera with me and shoot some of my Festival looks. This is the place where I feel fully myself, putting on all the fancy clothes, drowning myself in glitter and leather with no judgement. Its all about love, freedom, art, self expression and music, thats why I`m so in love with festivals and have been attending so many over the last few years. This year, we will take it all on another level and if you liked this post, you got all rights to be excited of what is to come! 

Day 1

This was all about that alternative grunge x country vibe, a floaty dress perfect for dancing but not too hot for the high temperatures in Hungary during August. 

Dress: Spell
Shoes: Dr.Martens
Bag: Hollister





Day 2

What`s one of the very best parts of a festival? All the glitter! I could dress like this all day, ist just the perfect outfit in so many ways and how awesome is the Teddy?! 

Shorts: Blackmilk
Jacket: Dollskill
Teddy: Dollskill




Day 3

Back to  my roots and another look where I just feel like myself. A bit of punk, a bit of extra but a whole lotta me.

Bandana: Primark
Top: Dollskill
Shorts: UNIF




Day 4

Sziget is all about dancing, different styles of music and tents all over the Island. So why not dress like a raver for a day and raise a beer in the middle of a tent city that never sleeps? PS: That triangle blinks to the music rythm!

Top: Blackmilk
Shorts: Blackmilk
Backpack: Dollskill





Day 6

For the last day, I decided to wear something comfy, to dance to Lana del Rey and be that classic flower power festival girl for a day. We ended up dancing in a sandstorm that turned into rain a few minutes later until the sun nearly started to rise again before we head off to the Airport, what more could you wish for?

Top: Blackmilk
Skirt: Spell




I really hope you enjoyed this little recap and are as exited as me for the upcoming festival season 2019, can`t wait to see you all on the site!

Kisses,

Faye =*
