Cold shoulder and Lace ups

Here in the states the brand CAT is mostly known for its trucks, and also tough work clothes and steel-toe boots, but I’m telling you right now, that is all about to change. A few weeks ago I was invited to attend a press preview of CAT Footwear’s current and upcoming shoe lines for men and women, and I was blown away by what I saw. What really impressed me was both the history of the brand and the thoughtfulness and process that goes into the design.

You all know I love a good brand story, and CAT has a great one. The hashtag #Earthmover is used because CAT, if you aren’t already aware, is a company that has literally built structures all over the world with their earth moving trucks and equipment. I was surprised to learn they are already well known for fashion all around the world – like there are already CAT boutiques in major shopping centers. As far as the design process, a lot of attention to detail and precision goes into the creation of the footwear and clothing. Right now they are creating designs that are going to go in to production in two years, once everything is tested and approved. In this fast fashion world that we live in, that is a huge stride in the right direction for quality over quantity.

But even a great brand story and design process alone is nothing without some great shoes, am i  right? I am in love with these leather lace up boots that I’ve styled in today’s post. The boot itself has an edgy vibe with the metal detail, but its the the lace up feature that makes it really cool and timeless. These boots also come in a distressed brown color called ‘peanut’ and a distressed light grey color called ‘pewter’, which is perfect for a more casual or country style- but I just loved the ‘rock and roll’ look of the black ones. They are also incredibly lightweight which is so important to me, especially now being pregnant – I have enough weight to lug around on my own! Check out the full women’s collection here.

  • 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!
