Light Neutrals

Sacramento in Spring is pretty much like summer in Chicago, and It is always good to wear light colors and layers to keep cool, so this was an easy outfit choice during my trip. Also, this neutral palette thing is seriously my uniform lately! I just love how the light colors contrast with my dark hair and skin – contrast is what really draws the eye so if you have an outfit that you think is just okay, try to wear something that is opposite of your own coloring, or add an accessory on the opposite end of the color wheel, that does the same trick!

I could have packed a little smarter and brought more pants that weren’t denim, but this time around I packed my bags quickly and without my usual fuss so I didn’t even think about it. Don’t judge- but usually when I travel, I try on complete outfits and photograph them so I can refer to the pictures for ideas during the trip. It is a lifesaver for when you have a full itinerary and a full suitcase and you don’t want to start from scratch. As for jewelry, I typically bring an entire jewelry organizer, but this time I got by with just one pair of earrings, one ring, and two necklaces. I have to say it was sort of liberating traveling with so few items, I may have to try this more often!

Thanks for visiting and have a great short week! xx

☀️🍔 ☀️🍔
First time back to my hometown to see my parents since Thanksgiving 2019. The kids have been so excited to see their Nanababa and Nano! The last video is what I was really missing tho…
My new favorite place in the house is definitely the sitting room off my bedroom. (See the before in my Reels) I worked with @thehavenly to turn this into my dream space. Now what used to be a pass through, is where I love to sit down after a shower and put on lotion or comb my hair, or even just curl up and read a book or listen to a guided meditation. Just a cozy and pretty space that feels intentional 💕 #havenlyambassador #interiordesign
I glow ‘cause I know what my worth is…who can name that song?? (every mom probably knows)
Thanks for all the love on my last post ❤️ I’m nursing a vulnerability hangover because I am actually a pretty private person (believe it or not) but every time I do get in my feelings and share it I end up connecting with so many of you and that makes it worth it. I know I am inspiring women to be unapologetic and to live their truth by doing so myself. That’s not a flex, enough of you dm me on the daily for me to say it with confidence. So with that- Lets go 2022! Hope this year keeps you feeling rested, hydrated, and living your best life! Also sorry and yes I’m definitely bothered by that rug flipped over in the back
Life is weird. For 2022 I’m thinking about how much I’ve personally grown. From this 21 year old girl getting married to someone I barely knew way too fast (my first marriage- also divorced within a year). That experience made me learn so much about standing up for what I wanted. Then for many years I thought I knew who I was, and soon I realized that wasn’t it either. I evolved. I struggled with my faith, particularly in 2020 when I felt attacked for my non mainstream views about Islam - interfaith marriage, LGBTQ, etc. Because of that, I lost a lot of supporters and tbh- sadly lost some friends. But I also figured out, with the sage advice from papa Shah, that there are as many opinions in the world as there are people - so me trying to change peoples opinions was pretty futile. Rather than bearing hostility to those who don’t think like me, I realized I should have empathy, and give people room to grow and learn. So I can say with sincerity that I’m finally good - with life and God and everything - and I’m proud of baby girl in this pic ❤️ Cheers to more growth and happiness next year!
You’re the best, I don’t care what everyone else says ❤️
