Military Jacket and Leather Joggers

Yesterday Tom was home sick so I got to take advantage and do a few things I’ve been meaning to do. One – get a pedicure – something I’ve been wanting to do since Sophia was born but somehow never got the time, and Two – have a mother-son date with Adam. I’ve been so wrapped up with the new baby I missed my Adam time, and I know he feels it too. He was the only one for six whole years – commanding all of our attention 24/7, and now splitting that time with a new little baby must be tough for him. We went to go see Beauty and The Beast, which wasn’t a hit with him – but I absolutely loved it. Some of the scenes were a little too scary for him, and the songs didn’t capture his attention as much as the reclining buttons on the theater chairs…so we ended up leaving before the movie ended. He did love the ice cream shop visit after, so all was good and I would say the date was a success.

I took the opportunity dress up in a comfy chic outfit and get sick Tom to come outside and snap a few pics :). Since I finally got that pedi I decided to break out these velvet heels I’ve had for months but never really felt like wearing while I was pregnant. Joggers have been great during my transitioning period getting back to my pre pregnancy weight. I love that these are faux leather so they look a little more dressed up than sweats. I also love a great military jacket – and this one is especially fun with the flared sleeves (also styled here) – but I’ve linked to some of my other favorite military jackets below.

Thanks for visiting as always, have a great weekend!

  • 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!
