love hijab girl


Who won? Yes, that's right:  me. 
Do you remember the love hijab competition that I entered? You can find the post all about it here. But here's a quick recap -  the competition centred around creating an outfit post with a hijab from Love Hijab. The winner of the competition wins £50 worth of free hijabs! 
And little old me won this competition. So here's the big question: what hijabs did I choose? Well wonder no more, I present to you my Love Hijab, well, hijabs!


Now, before I get talking about my selection, I need to talk about my slight obsession with the packaging. Each hijab was packed separately in its own white paper bag then sealed with a pin tape. It is just so cute and convenient! It would make a perfect gift for a friend or loved one, furthermore, the presentation makes it easier to buy then sent directly to the loved ones home, without worrying about repacking it. The additional sweets in each package is a major plus. I will let you into a little secret  I knew from the Love hijab Instagram that sweets are added into your parcel so I couldn't wait to receive mine. How adorable is it? Imagine receiving such an adorably packed gift from a friend or loved one, with sweets and cute hijabs. 

From my neat little layout, you can see I chose 9 hijabs.  You might be a bit surprised to hear that I didn't pick black. I mean, we can all agree to own a black hijab is crucial for every hijab-wearing woman, right? I did try, though! And I was sorry to find that my favourite styles were sold out in black. 

So I picked the next best colour after black: nude. Nude coloured hijabs are a must, especially since it is the season of spring. It's such a refreshing, subtle colour - the perfect addition to any wardrobe. I chose 4 nude pastel shades that would compliment any outfit and could be used on different occasions. 

My absolute favourite hijab is the pastel nude hijab with the wavy embroidery (coincidentally, this is the hijab I selected for my outfit post ). I just had buy this gorgeous hijab. I was lucky as it was the last one left, and I managed to nab it before anyone else got the chance to. So it's now sold out. You're welcome ladies ;).

As a companion to these shades, I chose 5 earthy shades. The Pantone colour of the year 2017 is greenery so I had to find a green to fit in there. Now, for us hijab wearers, I truly believe that earthy and army greens work beautifully for casual day wear. I also decided to go for some soft natural browns. 

All the hijabs apart from 1, I chose are viscose cotton-like fabric. Perfect as a simple hijab and breathable. The different material one which is georgette chiffon fabric, the kind that can be worn for special occasions. I picked an apricot shade for this hijab. 

I am so pleased with all the hijabs and find that all the shades work well all year long.
