Embellished

First off, if you are like me and pat yourself on the back any time you get a really good deal shopping – then listen up – Shopbop is having a huge sale, which officially starts tomorrow *but* they are allowing me to share the news with my followers so you all get to shop the sale a day early! Just use code EVENT17 at checkout to get your discount. (Get 20% off of all orders under $500, and 25% off of all orders above $500!).  Also – they are an Amazon company so you get free 2-day shipping with your Prime membership! I’ve got my eye on the premium Champion pieces, and also the Re/Done brand which they just started carrying. (I recently picked up the Levi’s Wedgie straight jean and I highly recommend.)

On to the look – if there were one piece of clothing to perfectly describe me, it would have to be a sequin embellished kimono jacket. I’m very much a boho flower child at heart, (blame it on my Nor Cal upbringing), but at the same time I love to be full on glam every now and then, (blame that on my Pakistani heritage ;)). So…a drapey kimono with metallic sequins in a pretty floral print, pretty much sums me up. Of course to balance all of that bling, I’m wearing my Spring favorite style – espadrilles. I wouldn’t call it a trend because it comes back season after season, but if you do want to be trendy, the platform espadrille is the way to go. I prefer ones with a pointed toe for that leg lengthening effect.

Now that festival season is upon us, even though I probably won’t be making it out to Coachella, Burning Man, or even Lollapalooza  this year – I can at least dress the part – and also coordinate with my doll Sophia while I’m at it! Scroll down to see my little Rose make her first official appearance on the blog. Besides giving me major side eye, she was a good sport and of course she looks adorable in her Zadig & Voltaire sweater which was a gift <3

Thanks so much for visiting as always xx

  • 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!
