Tie Sleeve Sweater and Platform Loafers

You know it’s officially Fall only when all the Mums and Pumpkins come out! The weather complied as well this past weekend and we had a chance to break out our favorite Fall hashtag: #sweaterweather. I wore this for a day out shopping with the family, we bought Adam a new video game, grabbed a week’s groceries, and picked up some new fish and coral for Tom’s salt water tank. Of course I couldn’t resist making him snap a few pics of my outfit in front of the mum display at the  grocery store! I didn’t even flinch when people stopped and stared, and one even pulled out a cell phone, I think to maybe add us to the boyfriends of instagram feed? Hopefully not…haha.

If there is anywhere I do want drama in my life, it has to be on my sleeves this season. This cozy wool cashmere blend sweater with the tie-sleeve detail is my newest addition to my wardrobe, also available in grey, navy, and winter white. I like to wear my sleeves longer as I’ve done below, but you can also tie the bows tighter so that the sleeves don’t go over your hands – which is exactly what I did when I was home changing diapers instead of out trying to be extra cute 🙂

I’ve also been using my favorite tote bag a LOT more now since I’ve been going to my Stand-up comedy class with Second City, and often lugging around more stuff than usual, including notebooks and the all-important snacks for the road (I’m SUCH a mom). The class has been a lot of fun and I would encourage anyone with the slightest interest in comedy to give it a shot. It isn’t easy though, and I do want to curl up and die in the riff sessions at the beginning of every class, but besides that, overall it has been great! (P.S. This bag is a part of the friends and family sale going on now, use code WEAREFRIENDS for 30% off + a free pouch with purchase of $250!)

  • Fact: My favorite color is leopard. 
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
  • The ‘hurry up and take the picture so I can eat’ face 😂. Also - a fly may or may not have landed on one of these babies (sitting outside probs) and I may or may not have still eaten it 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️ #sorrynotsorry #sashimi #noms

  • Our trip is almost over so that means eating all kinds of weird combinations of food we bought because I HATE leaving anything behind. I take it as a personal cooking challenge - am I just a freak or anyone else do it too? 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️#beachbabes #mommyandme #vacaystyle
  • My entire makeup bag fell into the toilet thanks to a little help from curious Sophia... 😫🤢 but I’m still smiling because: funnel cakes. Also what is your favorite brand of makeup brush?

  • 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
