Style Check: The ‘Anya and her Khalas’ edition

I love dressing up my little girl, and our style is a little eclectic because I love mixing and matching what we have to come up with new outfits. Even when shopping for my little girl, I try to look for classic pieces that can be mixed up with other items in our closet for some unique looks. I also prefer not to dress her from head to toe in any particular style or from any one store, just to give our own little personality to the things we wear.

So well, with five girls in the house (mA), while we were with our family, you can imagine the amount of dressing up and taking pictures, that took place. I thought it would be fun to compile a little post on some ‘Anya and khala fashion’ from our little Pakistan break. Here it is. Hope you enjoy!

Adorable, right? I sure think so and say a silent prayer in my heart when I see Anya with our lovelies! Maybe you noticed Nadiya and Waliya wearing the same outfit in at least one place? We have always shared our clothes with each other and sometimes we exchange our outfits/shoes/accessories when we meet. I quite love it. Makes us feel closer with each other.

Also I think we should have more baby fashion on the blog. What do you say? wink!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

(FYI: Khala is the urdu word for maternal aunt.)


  1. gorgeous wardrobe of Anya and her khalas too :) Shopping for lil gals is so much fun too ... its like landing into a splash of colours. I usually try to grab different things for Hiba too and mix and match them .. better than buying whole outfits; each time you get a different style. I wish she was so keen on clips and hair accessories too .. she just don't let them on for more than few minutes at max :/

    Gorgeous trip pics .. are you back to home(from home i.e.)?

    ps: loved that car in look 1 pics ... only in pakistan thing heheh

    1. Asma!! Yes I am back home. Sorry for the late reply, Anya got sick as soon as we got back and was caught up. Haha totally, its hard to know when to stop shopping for them. Its funny you mention the clips, because lately she'll keep taking it off and OCD mom that I am, I keep putting it on, hoping she'll not notice at some point:p Anyways good to hear from you. Hope you and your girls are well! xoxo
