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…)

  • Fact: My favorite color is leopard. 
Two things I missed most while being away from home are also the things I often complain about: 1) cooking my own food and 2) watching children’s programming -- I seriously bawled watching Coco today and it was my 574763 time watching it 😂 (but for real if you haven’t seen it you should it’s SO good) #ootd #leopard #summerstyle
  • The ‘hurry up and take the picture so I can eat’ face 😂. Also - a fly may or may not have landed on one of these babies (sitting outside probs) and I may or may not have still eaten it 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️ #sorrynotsorry #sashimi #noms

  • I’m so honored to be featured on @yahoostylebeauty today talking about modest fashion from the Muslim perspective - along with some major boss ladies I truly admire! I feel like as Muslim women we are constantly trying to prove to the world that we are not a stereotype or monolith, we are individuals - with nuances, we have different ways of expressing our faith and modesty. This article does a great job of showcasing our diversity. Check it out - link in my bio! #muslimwomen #modestfashion #chicagoblogger 📸 @jamieberg
