Winter Work Wear

Today’s look is what I wore to work today, except for the fact that I actually wore my snow boots to work and slipped on these while at my desk. It has been so cold in the office lately there have been days where I didn’t take off my boots or coat the whole day. I’m not even talking about my Hunter’s when I say snow boots, I mean my snow boots I wear when I go skiing or snowmobiling. Today’s weather warmed up to like the 20’s so I was feeling adventurous and took a few pictures of my outfit over lunch. 
I never plan out my work outfits ahead of time because I think it is fun to pull together different pieces and create a new outfit every day. I’m usually in a big rush in the morning so I like to buy a lot of separates that can be mixed and matched. Today I knew I wanted to be really warm so I layered this cream cashmere turtleneck with a longer grey wool cardigan, then to balance out the bulk on top, I paired these ankle length printed trousers with a heeled loafer. Since I had black, white, cream, and grey in my color palette, I added a neutral army green oversized coat and a pop of color with the emerald with my heels.

On a side note, all of my gloves are now fingerless or tech friendly like the ones I’m wearing, a sign of the times I guess – or my obsession with social media perhaps. These Isotoners I’m wearing are from Target, and they are much warmer than the knit ones, I highly recommend them.

On another side note, we are currently binge watching The Wire and I am obsessed. I caught myself saying how Breaking Bad is the best show ever, except for maybe The Wire – and I recall that was a line in a Family Guy episode…somehow it irks me that a Family Guy stereotype applies to me. Sigh, oh well…like they say, it’s funny because it’s true!

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!
