Bold Printed Dresses with Tommy Bahama

This past weekend we celebrated Adam’s birthday, he was over the moon because it is the first party where his friends from school attended. He specifically asked me to invite them and then even told me to make sure they are coming. It was bittersweet for me because he is getting so independent, and while I love that, it reminds me he’s not a baby anymore *sniff*. We have been watching this movie on repeat called ‘inside out’  which is all about personal feelings, there are characters like joy, anger, and sadness that are competing with each other in a child’s brain. Adam said he likes Joy better than Sadness, and I thought that was a pretty good call! Out of the mouth of babes…

For today’s Blogger Nation post we are teaming up with Tommy Bahama, a brand that truly embodies the beautiful Hawaiian culture. One trip to Hawaii will make you fall in love with the lifestyle, every time I go I start scheming on ways to actually live there full time.  I’ve learned I make the most of the clothing I actually connect with on a personal level, and for example the artist story behind some of the bold prints in the new Tommy Bahama collection leaves me inspired and excited. The prints are custom drawn by in-house artists, and this season is all about reinventing classic prints. I’m wearing one of my favorite styles of the season, the lace-up dress, in the Remy Retro print, which if you look closely, you can see it looks very much like a water color painting. It was pretty chilly this past weekend so I paired with my over-the-knee boots and layered a light jacket on top. I can’t wait to style this for warmer weather – I would wear a chunky heeled platform sandal, and accessorize with a brightly colored bag.

  • When aunties are way cooler than you...
Took my mom to see her childhood bestie (who happens to live here) and ate up all their stories about life in Pakistan before they had any kids - they were both full-time teachers, obsessed with makeup and fashion, and to my surprise - apparently very big on playing pranks on each other! They would put on a burqa and go knock on doors and scare their friends 😂 (I was like wait - are you still talking about my mom??) I’ll never judge an aunty again...
  • New Zealand. Tree of Life. Countless others...when are we going to acknowledge White Supremacy as what it actually is, TERRORISM. I directly blame Fox News and other major right wing media outlets for influencing these hateful (probably uneducated) people. When we demonize people to the level where they are inhuman (children in cages at the border) we open up the possibility to do the most evil without regard. I hesitated on posting this because I like to keep things light around here - but damn, I realize I really don’t have that privilege...ignoring the news isn’t something I can just do as a brown Muslim woman ~ my family is at the mosque every Friday praying - what I want to know is, what can we do to really make change?? Eff the NRA and all the corporations that benefit off of human suffering!
  • Don’t worry baby girl, what’s mine is yours! (Note the backward shoe in pic 3 😂) #playingdressup #momswithcameras
  • Drove mom all the way out to Devon for some Falooda and shopping - but baby Soph fell asleep and I know better than to mess with her nap time so...in the car I shall stay. #dontwakethebaby #likeever #faloodatogo
  • ‘And this one will make your skin baby soft...’
never too early to start learning proper skincare! (In reality she was trying to grab everything off of every shelf so I had to strap her in the stroller and have my mom take her outside so I could get what I needed 😂 - @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pencil, @theouai wave spray) #lesigh #momlife
  • Happy bday to my little man ~ cheers to 8 years! (And we are officially done with birthdays for the year hallelujah! 🙏🏾)
  • 15 year old Zahra would be so proud of this look ~ story time: I bought this necklace from a lady on the beach in Jamaica who was so sweet - she suggested I buy a toe ring anklet thing and I said my feet are way too ugly for that - she told me I was beautiful and sternly advised me never to say bad stuff about myself again - so I said Awww thank you! ok give me like three more shell necklaces 💁🏾‍♀️ The end.
  • DIY face mask: ingredient: Peanut butter (also yes this was a b* to clean up 😱) #momswithcameras
  • Spending some quality time with my mom this week! I’m pretty sure I got all of my best traits from her ❤️ even the ones that bother her the most...🤭 😊Also a peek at the living room progress - so far we have new paint and a new couch! Currently sourcing gold sconces, a console table for the record player, and wall art and accessories. I love shopping second-hand, vintage and artisan made, where are your favorite places to shop for home?? #internationalwomensday #mothersanddaughters
