Blue and White Denim

Thanks for visiting! Today’s look is a casual look that can be pulled together easily with things almost everyone already owns. I like layering a long sleeved denim shirt with a shorter sleeved lightweight knit in a boxy or looser fit. Just roll up the sleeves and pair with something more fitted on the bottom to balance out the proportions.
Every weekend when I’m taking my blog pictures for the week, I have to try hard not to wear these white jeans because they really just go with everything. It is definitely a year round staple for me – and Paige is really a curvy girls best friend for denim. Trust me on that!

Outfit Details:  Jeans:  Paige   Top: J.Crew     Sweater: Loft    Shoes: Target 
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff    Sunnies: Ray-Ban   Earrings: Gift, but here is a Kate Spade style I LOVE
So I found this new nail salon by my house that I absolutely LOVE. They are so sweet and the place has a luxurious feel – they even have their hand lotion in warmers so when they massage you it is heavenly. I went to get my nails done yesterday- and by the way Essie Baby’s Breath is to-die-for white polish that I now have on both my fingers and toes – anyway, I walk in my new favorite place- and I see the lady that worked at my old nail place which is located all the way in another city where I work! I was so embarrassed! I felt like I was caught cheating on my husband or something – total mortification. I started making excuses and told her it was because I lived close by, which was true, but really it was because I just wanted to start going to this place instead. 
We ended up joking around and it was okay but I still feel a little tinge of guilt. Is that normal? Are you loyal to your nail salon or even your hair stylist for that matter?
Thanks for visiting and definitely come back tomorrow, I am going to be featured on a fab beauty blog where I share my must-have make-up and skincare items!

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 ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
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!
