3 Ways To Wear – Neon Heels

 If you are looking to buy just one more pair of pumps for the summer, I’d say make it a neon. I’m obsessed with these and I keep finding new ways to wear them. Here are three ways I’d style a pair of neon pumps. How would you style them?
Pants:  Nordstrom  Top: Nordstrom Necklace: Bloomingdales Similar Style
Watch: Michele  Clutch: Marc Jacobs for Target

Jeans: Zara Top: Target  Jacket: Levis (out of stock) Similar Style (that I want right now)  Necklace: J.Crew
Bracelets: Lia Sophia   Watch: Michele   Sunnies: Kate Spade

Skirt: (worn as dress) Loft  Jacket: Nordstrom Rack Similar Style  Bag: Rebecca Minkoff  

Sunnies: Ray-Ban   Bracelet: J.Crew  Watch: Michael Kors


Shoemint (Available in Neon Pink)  and Similar Style in Neon Yellow (On Sale!)


So I recently learned about a couple of cool Father’s Day ideas for all of you Chicago girls (and guys!). When I was in Hawaii, stand-up paddle surfing was THE thing to do. You can treat your dad or baby daddy to a Stand-up Paddleboarding lesson on GiltCity.com. Or you could even do a Sailing lesson, which goes on sale starting today – both gifts are seriously discounted on GiltCity.com. You can tell him you are welcome from me!

On another note I finally got a chance to finish Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In and I’d recommend it to everyone! This is the first whole book I’ve read since I had my son, and I’ve started reading plenty. The book really gets to the heart of why many women do not rise through the ranks and become leaders within their organizations. It was interesting to read about women subconsciously holding ourselves back in order to fit in and be liked, or at least to avoid being disliked. What the book does not do, is belittle women who choose to stay home to raise their children, despite what some critics say. If you read it and want to chat, let me know!

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
