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

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

  • 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
