Velvet Blazer and Distressed Denim

Continuing on with my obsession with everything velvet, I recently snagged this double breasted blazer from online retailer, a site that carries a huge selection of style for every price point. The ordering process was super easy (with free shipping over $59) and items arrived sooner than I had expected, which is always a good thing!

Head to toe velvet seems to be everywhere these days, so in order to make more of a subtle statement I decided to just wear one piece. To balance out the formal vibe of the velvet, I paired it with my favorite distressed maternity denim and classic black suede pumps. I would wear this to a holiday party as is, but if you need to go more dressy, this blazer would look amazing over a lace or sequin dress, or even over black leather leggings.

This weekend we are planning to get a start on the baby room, I’ve already started buying furniture and I can’t wait to see it all put together. I’m going to share some of my progress over snapchat and instastories @zahra_sandberg – so be sure to follow! Have a great weekend, and thanks for visiting as always xx

First time back to my hometown to see my parents since Thanksgiving 2019. The kids have been so excited to see their Nanababa and Nano! The last video is what I was really missing tho…
My new favorite place in the house is definitely the sitting room off my bedroom. (See the before in my Reels) I worked with @thehavenly to turn this into my dream space. Now what used to be a pass through, is where I love to sit down after a shower and put on lotion or comb my hair, or even just curl up and read a book or listen to a guided meditation. Just a cozy and pretty space that feels intentional 💕 #havenlyambassador #interiordesign
I glow ‘cause I know what my worth is…who can name that song?? (every mom probably knows)
Thanks for all the love on my last post ❤️ I’m nursing a vulnerability hangover because I am actually a pretty private person (believe it or not) but every time I do get in my feelings and share it I end up connecting with so many of you and that makes it worth it. I know I am inspiring women to be unapologetic and to live their truth by doing so myself. That’s not a flex, enough of you dm me on the daily for me to say it with confidence. So with that- Lets go 2022! Hope this year keeps you feeling rested, hydrated, and living your best life! Also sorry and yes I’m definitely bothered by that rug flipped over in the back
Life is weird. For 2022 I’m thinking about how much I’ve personally grown. From this 21 year old girl getting married to someone I barely knew way too fast (my first marriage- also divorced within a year). That experience made me learn so much about standing up for what I wanted. Then for many years I thought I knew who I was, and soon I realized that wasn’t it either. I evolved. I struggled with my faith, particularly in 2020 when I felt attacked for my non mainstream views about Islam - interfaith marriage, LGBTQ, etc. Because of that, I lost a lot of supporters and tbh- sadly lost some friends. But I also figured out, with the sage advice from papa Shah, that there are as many opinions in the world as there are people - so me trying to change peoples opinions was pretty futile. Rather than bearing hostility to those who don’t think like me, I realized I should have empathy, and give people room to grow and learn. So I can say with sincerity that I’m finally good - with life and God and everything - and I’m proud of baby girl in this pic ❤️ Cheers to more growth and happiness next year!
You’re the best, I don’t care what everyone else says ❤️
