Silk Pajama Blouse + High Waist Denim

stripes Fancy enough for a girls night out, and comfy enough for a girls night out in your 30’s.

There I was, naked, standing in front of a row of colorful pieces that have accumulated over many years through careful choosing, or on complete whims. I had no time to waste and I was starting to get the first signs of anxiety. It was my daily battle. My wardrobe was my enemy. Tonight was girls night out – and I had nothing to wear.

Then I found my savior, in the form of a colorful striped pajama blouse. A button down blouse with denim will always be my favorite, and the fact that it looks and feels like pajamas is just a bonus. Paired with my go-to (seriously I wear them constantly) jeans, and my satin ankle pumps, I felt fancy enough for my girlfriends and comfy enough for what would end up being a night of a whole lot of eating. Not saying I can’t still turn up like I used to but…sometimes in your 30’s you’d just rather have girl talk and good food – lots and lots of food 🙂

We went to Beatrix in Fulton Market for dinner – which was nice because we had some Vegans in the group and they had a cauliflower steak they liked. I recommend the Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts, and the Ravioli with ricotta – so so good. For dessert we stopped at Bombobar and got a bunch of everything but the donuts were my favorite.

The conversation ran the spectrum from manifesting our lives with our innate supernatural powers, to debating whose family was the craziest. Returned home later with a full stomach and a fed soul. Hoping for many more nights like these <3

  • 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!
