Denim Jacket and Joggers

A few days ago we took a trip to a new park that opened up nearby. Adam was beyond excited because I told him we could have a picnic, so he helped me pack our picnic basket with all of his favorite snacks and a blanket to sit on. He even got himself dressed faster than I’ve ever witnessed before – granted I had to change him because he put on shorts and a t-shirt that was about two sizes to small, but I was still impressed by his effort.

The play area of the park ended up being closed that day for maintenance and flower planting, but that didn’t dim Adam’s excitement for the picnic. We watched as families arrived and left disappointed after learning the park was closed. We ended up spreading out our blanket in the picnic area which was still open and eating our string cheese and chips, then we made up games to play with some sticks in the dirt. Other parents soon joined us in the picnic area and began to do the same. Bath time required a little extra scrubbing later, but we had a lot of fun. I swear I learn new lessons from my babies all the time, this time I was reminded that life is truly what you make of it – if the playground is closed, get some sticks and go play in the dirt.

About the look – as a mom and a someone with no work dress code, I wear jogger pants a lot. They are the closest things to pajamas in terms of comfort, but they still make you look put together. I am not kidding when I say these are my favorite pair. I have them in two colors – black and olive green. They are a thicker fabric, with a moto detail, and the ankle area stays up if you pull it at the calf. I also like the thicker tie waist belt. It makes them feel  a little more luxe. I also recently got this wallet on strap bag which I now wear every day because I will wear it as a cross body bag or I can throw it in the baby bag without adding too much bulk. It is the perfect size to fit an ID and credit cards, a phone, some makeup, and keys. This is pretty much my daily uniform – the perfect weekend casual outfit, or just for regular days at home learning lessons from my kiddos.

Hope you are having a great week xx

  • When aunties are way cooler than you...
Took my mom to see her childhood bestie (who happens to live here) and ate up all their stories about life in Pakistan before they had any kids - they were both full-time teachers, obsessed with makeup and fashion, and to my surprise - apparently very big on playing pranks on each other! They would put on a burqa and go knock on doors and scare their friends 😂 (I was like wait - are you still talking about my mom??) I’ll never judge an aunty again...
  • New Zealand. Tree of Life. Countless others...when are we going to acknowledge White Supremacy as what it actually is, TERRORISM. I directly blame Fox News and other major right wing media outlets for influencing these hateful (probably uneducated) people. When we demonize people to the level where they are inhuman (children in cages at the border) we open up the possibility to do the most evil without regard. I hesitated on posting this because I like to keep things light around here - but damn, I realize I really don’t have that privilege...ignoring the news isn’t something I can just do as a brown Muslim woman ~ my family is at the mosque every Friday praying - what I want to know is, what can we do to really make change?? Eff the NRA and all the corporations that benefit off of human suffering!
  • Don’t worry baby girl, what’s mine is yours! (Note the backward shoe in pic 3 😂) #playingdressup #momswithcameras
  • Drove mom all the way out to Devon for some Falooda and shopping - but baby Soph fell asleep and I know better than to mess with her nap time so...in the car I shall stay. #dontwakethebaby #likeever #faloodatogo
  • ‘And this one will make your skin baby soft...’
never too early to start learning proper skincare! (In reality she was trying to grab everything off of every shelf so I had to strap her in the stroller and have my mom take her outside so I could get what I needed 😂 - @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pencil, @theouai wave spray) #lesigh #momlife
  • Happy bday to my little man ~ cheers to 8 years! (And we are officially done with birthdays for the year hallelujah! 🙏🏾)
  • 15 year old Zahra would be so proud of this look ~ story time: I bought this necklace from a lady on the beach in Jamaica who was so sweet - she suggested I buy a toe ring anklet thing and I said my feet are way too ugly for that - she told me I was beautiful and sternly advised me never to say bad stuff about myself again - so I said Awww thank you! ok give me like three more shell necklaces 💁🏾‍♀️ The end.
  • DIY face mask: ingredient: Peanut butter (also yes this was a b* to clean up 😱) #momswithcameras
  • Spending some quality time with my mom this week! I’m pretty sure I got all of my best traits from her ❤️ even the ones that bother her the most...🤭 😊Also a peek at the living room progress - so far we have new paint and a new couch! Currently sourcing gold sconces, a console table for the record player, and wall art and accessories. I love shopping second-hand, vintage and artisan made, where are your favorite places to shop for home?? #internationalwomensday #mothersanddaughters
