Sunset at Jabal Jais wearing the perfect dress

Last month we decided to enjoy sunset at Jabal Jais along with a couple of friends. The weather is finally improving here in the UAE, which calls for a much needed road trip. Jabal Jais is only a 40 minutes drive from Dubai, and the scenery is completely different from the usual images you see from this part of the world. I had just received the most beautiful dress from Zayan the Label and knew straight away that it would be a perfect match with the backdrop.

Sunset at Jabal Jais is magical, thats the best way to describe it. Watching the sun disappearing between the mountains, then suddenly seeing the colors in the sky transform to a pink hue. Life seems to go at a much slower pace there, a vast land with interesting looking trees including a few palm tree farms. Camels will be the only friends you are likely to make there, if you are lucky then you might just encounter some wild goats too. (you can watch my video about it here)

If you follow me on instagram, you will know that I am totally obsessed with dresses. This one is extra special for the fact that is from a new Middle Eastern designer, with the only store here in Dubai. A unique take of a shirt dress with the most beautiful floral and pinstriped silk fabric and hand embroider details. It is fitted till the waist then flared to perfection, it comes with a leather belt to give a contemporary look. I chose to style it with my favorite Lack of Colors hat and just a simple pair of heels cause lets be honest it is dusty in Jabal Jais! All Zayan the Label pieces are exquisite, below you can get an idea of her other styles.

Straw Hat: Lack of Color
Sandals: Schutz
