How To Style A Graphic Tee – Six Ways

Today I am so excited to share a collaboration I’ve done with a fabulous blogger, Anum Khan, of the Toronto based blog Summerxskin. I met Anum through the blogging world, and always visit her site for fashion inspiration and beauty tips. She is also a youtube queen – and I love her videos because you can really see her sweet personality shine through!

We both took a trend that is really hot right now, the graphic tee,  and styled it 3 ways, for a total of six different ways! The funny thing is – i picked the Amor Tee from J.Crew- perfect for “Love” Zahra and Anum picked a tee that says “Summer” Love- fitting for her blog “SummerxSkin“. Coincidence? I think not 🙂

Which look is your favorite? Least favorite? Let me know!

My Looks:

The Haute Hippie
Skirt: Urban Outfitters Similar Style ($59!) Top: J.CrewSandals: Report  Bag: Marc Jacobs  Scarf: Zara Bracelets: Lia Sophia  Necklace: Urban Outfitters Similar Style

For this casual look, I paired the t-shirt with a pleated maxi skirt, and added gold detail with the sandals and the bag. The rings on the pointer fingers add to the ‘hippy’ factor.  

The Collegiate

Top: J.Crew Jeans: Henry and Belle Jacket: H&M Similar J.Crew Style Shoes: Zara   iPad case: Kate Spade   Belt: Ann Taylor
Bracelet: J.Crew

The most comfortable of all of the looks, a pair of boyfriend jeans (that I have been wearing non-stop as you may have noticed) that I paired with a tailored blazer and pointed-toe flats for a nice contrast.

Top: J.Crew  LBD: Express  Shoes: BCBGeneration Bracelets: Tory Burch Necklace: Banana Republic  Sunnies: Kate Spade

Change up your standard little back dress by adding a t-shirt and make it your own. I’ve finished off the look with nude/gold heels and a messy side bun for a cool dressed-up look.

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!
