Spring Dresses with Tommy Bahama

The weather is actually warming up a bit around here (50 degrees yesterday what??) and I’ve completely stopped buying any more coats and heavy sweaters in exchange for more Spring time items. A dress is one busy mom’s go to staple item I like to stock up on in every color, and when it is chilly I just throw on a light jacket or sweater and I’m all set.  One of my favorite places to get high quality and classic pieces is Tommy Bahama. I’ve collaborated with them quite a few times as you may have noticed if you are a regular here, and I’ve been able to get a ton of wear out of everything I have. For me that is so important in choosing what I shop for, if I can’t get a ton of wear out of it, I don’t even bother getting it.
You also may have noticed I try to avoid shopping all of the big fast fashion houses, because I strive to be a conscious consumer, I know that if I get a $5 dress, someone somewhere else is taking a hit. At first the thought of never shopping at Zara again was so scary I didn’t even want to say it out loud, but to be real, it has been so easy – and I end up saving a lot of money which allows me to buy great quality pieces from brands I love and respect.
About my look – the midi dress I’m wearing has a cute neckline with a racerback style. I love the peephole in the back of the neck, and the versatile olive color. I paired with the coziest of all sweater jackets and a pair of boots because it isn’t quite warm enough yet to go without. Take a look at Tommy Bahama’s dress collection – they are currently having a 20% off promotion, until February 21st!

  • 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!
