Part Time Hijabi

So, I was feeling a little...I don't know...I wanted to be *anonymous* today, toward the end of the day. It wasn't a bad day or anything, I just...


So I got in my car and a rearranged my khimar so that I was wearing it right, instead of pinned behind my neck. And voila! Instant anonymousness. I was hijabi (totally covered- long skirt, sweater that had long sleeves, plus khimar)'know...third times the charm - this hijabi outing went well.

Am now 'secret hijabi'.

I intend to wear it as often as I can get away with it.


  1. Woohoo! Yay, Amber!

    Yeah, I have days like that, too, and that's when I have a tendency to wear niqab the most (and if it's an extra-strength feeling, I wear the Saudi-style niqab with the eye veil). If I'm going to be around a lot of men, then I usually wear niqab, too. : )

    Glad the full hijab made you feel good!

  2. Heather,

    Thanks. :)

    I was surprised, actually, because before this full hijab has just made me feel awkward.

  3. Ahavah,

    Hah. Sorry, no, no pictures. I'm not in the habit of taking random pictures of myself.
