SHORT/SWIM/SHORTS

Thursday morning, while I’m in between jobs for weeks now (in a good way) for the first time after long months of extreme summer here in Dubai I finally made it to my favorite Mamzar beach where the water is smooth as silk and quiet like a lake. (Yah, I know this beach is unusual, not for surfers but good for swimming lapses and sun worshippers. FYI, Mamzar beach shoreline is manmade. Oh yeh!) So there I went by 8am (because it opens to public by that time) then left after 2 hours to save my self from skin cancer.

MEN’S WEAR: Saturday

It is hot. It is hot. It is hot to the nth level here in Dubai and I tried my best to look easy under the heat. Here I found salvation from ZARA summer collection. Its linen shirt with Mao collar for AED 195. See from the photo below, I am still sweating over the linen shirt.   Same shoes from Bershka, my favorite shoe going to work. Pants from H&M.
