Sophia Reyes + LoveZahra {Look 3}

For my third look in my collaboration with Sophia Reyes  (check out look 1 and 2 ) I’ve styled the beautiful Leila Silk Midi Dress in Olive. Midi length is definitely my current favorite for dresses and skirts, and I love the gather in front because it makes the dress a completely different shape. 

 I’ve accessorized by layering two cuffs by Heritage S, who by the way is having a blowout sale this weekend so if you are in the Dallas area, you must stop by! These lace up sandals from Zara and the cocktail ring by Tissh complete the look. I love wearing a cocktail ring on my index finger and a simple ring on the other hand to balance it out.

Do you need a little inspiration today? 
 This blog post by blogger Abhilasha is full of great advice we should all heed. I read it a few times. Here is an excerpt regarding love and relationships: 

Self respect is the most important respect of all.
Look out for yourself.A man who cares about your feelings, roots for your limitless future, and plans to guard your dreams as his own is a person who will make a good life partner. You should not accept less.”

Last but not least, if you are in the Chicago area next Thursday, December 12th, come join me for a fun mom’s night out at Luxaby Baby & Child  (read my full post about the boutique here). There will be bites, bubbly (as well as non-alcoholic drinks), blowouts, and styling by Blowtique Salon, and special discounts on some adorable baby and children’s clothing and accessories. See flyer below for details and don’t forget to rsvp to because space is extremely limited!

I hope to see you there!

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!
