Date Night: Cut Outs + Louboutins

 I didn’t plan on having a post today because we have only just returned from our trip and I hosted family over last night so I was pretty busy and didn’t think I could swing it…but I did! (I apologize in advance for any typos, grammatical errors, or run on sentences separated only by hyphens). Today’s post is thanks primarily to the insomnia I’ve been experiencing, which is really rare for me because typically I am able to fall asleep anywhere I lay my head – noise and comfort are not even usually a factor for me. So tonight after tossing and turning I decided to get out of bed and I proceeded to put away Adam’s toys that were strewn all across the living room floor, organize the kitchen pantry, then tried on some clothes that were delivered while I was away (side note: wait a week or so after extremely indulgent vacation diet before trying on clothes), after that I went and changed my blog header after perusing some new fonts (do you like it?), and finally I thought I would put together a post featuring this gorgeous dress I wore for one of the two date nights we had recently.

I love the light fabric in this dress – it has a bit of stretch but does not hug too tight (I’m in an xs). Also, I don’t think you need to worry about wearing bright peach during the fall and winter months – brights and pastels were all over runways for Fall, and even if they weren’t I’d still wear it because it makes me feel good and I don’t believe in having fashion ‘rules’. The half-sleeves and the cut outs on the waist are my favorite part of this dress. I finished off the look by pairing with my go to leather jacket and Loubs.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week. (Don’t forget to subscribe, I’ve got big plans for subscribers starting next year…)

  • Slightly terrified because I just hit publish on a new YouTube video where I am completely makeup free (and possibly too close up - nose hair close 😬) reviewing the new clean skincare line @oneoceanbeauty that I have been testing for the past 8 weeks. I thought about not posting the video because watching it brought out a lot of my insecurities - about aging and wrinkles, my asymmetrical face, my unfortunate eyebrows - but I decided to do it because I love seeing other women who are confident and comfortable in their own makeup free skin and I want to be that too! 🙌🏾 #cleanskincare #cleanbeauty #skincareroutine

  • When at least one of us is looking at the camera, it’s a win 🙌🏾 Also, I’m holding the rocks she collected for her - lol - We are staying cozy  inside today, carving pumpkins and watching movies ~ a Sunday well spent 💕 what are you all up to? #mommyandme #pumpkinpatch #fallthings
  • #flashbackfriday Scrolling through my iCloud and came across this family picture shot by @jorellegates. Two thoughts: 1) I can’t believe how teeny my babies are And 2) we need to take more family pictures! Do you guys get professional family pics done? If yes, how often? With Adam we did it every season but now we can’t seem to get our act together ~ even for someone who takes pictures constantly I can’t seem to do it 😔 #fambam #momswithcameras
  • Thinking about what my next YouTube video should be? I’m thinking of organizing my kitchen/pantry/junk drawer (for some good old organization porn) - or a Fall outfit look book featuring only stuff I already own (restyled) and the only new stuff would be thrifted? Which would you want to see first?? Let me know! #tgif #styleinspo
  • Sophie’s face whenever I try to take her picture - either that or she’s running away 😑 Today we took a spontaneous trip to the pumpkin farm ~ I got my fill of apple cider donuts - which is the real reason why I love to go tbh - but the real question is which are your fave, glazed or cinnamon/sugar??? #momswithcameras #pumpkinpatch
  • Last nights look for a little soirée with the @urbandecaycosmetics team! What could be better than a night of makeup and pizza??? I’ll wait... #udallnighter #chicagoblogger #makeupparty
  • Smiling because a new YouTube video is now live on my channel! Sharing how I meal prepped this week’s lunch - it is a really easy beef stew recipe - (it’s also a really good veggie stew if you don’t eat meat!) Hope you guys enjoy! Also hooray for wool hat weather! 🙌🏾 #newvideo #youtube #mealprep
  • #flashbackfriday to a preppy Zahra in college (when I worked at Hollister 🙃) and polo shirts were life - also my parents had that plaid couch for a decade and that treadmill was NEVER used. Lastly, thick eyebrows weren’t cool yet FYI. #TGIF #goodtimes
  • A peek inside my ‘creative mess’ aka my office where I finally finished editing a new YouTube video  it’s a quick (under 5 minute) makeup tutorial using a lot of new @ctilburymakeup I recently picked up (and btw absolutely LOVE)- for a really fresh ‘enhanced natural’ face. Hope you enjoy!
