Whats In My Shopping Cart…

Three things I’m crushing on right now. Bonus: They are all on sale!
Outfit details: Shoes: Club Monaco (on sale 70% off!) Jeans: Levi’s Sweater: ALC via Material World Co.

As a style enthusiast (and that is putting it very lightly…) I am constantly on the hunt for things that I know will elevate my wardrobe. I also spend a lot of time researching online to see what is happening on the runway, and what is trending each season. In order to avoid impulse shopping, I like to add things to my cart and not buy it, just to see if I still want it in a few days. I also like to ‘favorite’ items, most websites have some sort of option to do that, so that when there is a big sale I remember exactly what I love and snatch it up quickly.

Speaking of sales, right now is a good time to do that as Shopbop is having a huge sale – if you spend $500, you get 20% off, and if you spend over $500, you can take 25% off! 

Here’s what’s in my shopping cart right now:

  1. A White Boot – Instead of sticking with basic black, I’m going for a winter white boot this year. I have been eyeing this pair because of the sleek shape that will work equally well paired with skinny jeans or skirts. that is a part of the big Shopbop sale going on right now!
  2. Statement Earrings  – Fall is the time to break out the big jewels – although I do tend to love them year ’round. I’d wear these with some high waist denim and a cozy knit. 
  3. Cozy Sweater – A cozy sweater is an obvious seasonal choice, but I added it to the list since I already have a bunch of basic sweaters that aren’t giving me life like this one. I’m going to donate or consign those boring sweaters and pick up something a little cooler like this. The sleeves are voluminous but the tight wrist will keep you from looking like you are swimming in it.

  • 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!
