Staycation Day 2: Tunic Sweater + Cut Out Booties

On our second day of our staycation in Chicago, I dressed a little more casual for a Mexican dinner al fresco and then for taking in a comedy show at Zanies. I forget how much more fun it is to see a show live, since most of my entertainment comes from Netflix these days (hello, Stranger Things!) I love the light weight knit fabric and open back detail in this sweater tunic, which makes it really versatile for wearing year round. Also now that I’m officially a hat person – after years of thinking I couldn’t pull of the style – my latest addition to my hat arsenal is this one by Janessa Leone, you can feel the high quality and heavy weight of the wool – it keeps its shape perfectly and doesn’t flop around. I highly recommend.

Also for Fall, I’m all about cut out booties, and I’m finding that most of my shoe collection these days is either black or a neutral taupe color like this pair. It just goes with everything and stays in style.

On another note, the second trimester is turning out to be much better than the first, and I’m getting back in to a healthy routine. I’m getting back to posting regularly here on the blog, and I’ve been updating my Pinterest page with some great outfit, shoe, and bag inspiration. Do check it out! I’m also planning on posting my prenatal workout routine and some of my favorite ways to dress the bump for everyday. Stay tuned for that coming up!

Have a great weekend! xx

  • 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

  • Our trip is almost over so that means eating all kinds of weird combinations of food we bought because I HATE leaving anything behind. I take it as a personal cooking challenge - am I just a freak or anyone else do it too? 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️#beachbabes #mommyandme #vacaystyle

  • 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
