Happy St. Patty’s Day! St. Patricks Day in Chicago is a huge event, the entire weekend preceding the date begins the party! I was at a lovely Mia Bossi brunch event Saturday morning and I could feel the energy of the hoards of people on the street clad head-to-toe in green. I had to rush home to prepare for Adam’s birthday party the next day, he turned three years old! 
It’s a crazy, busy, stressful, blissful, amazing ride having kids – one minute you want to pull your hair out, the next you are full of joy beyond comprehension! I’m always reminding myself to remember to appreciate it all because in a blink it will all have passed by…
As I put together this outfit idea, I immediately thought of Miranda from The Devil Wears Prada saying ‘Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.’ Haha. Pastels and florals are often synonymous with Spring style, and I say if it ain’t broke, why fix it? I’ve been particularly fond of mint and lavender shades, and I can’t stop wearing this top! I wear it with jeans to be casual and over a pencil skirt for work. The high slit in the sides keeps it from looking frumpy, but it is still long and wide so it has a very modern boxy style. 
There are a lot of floral pumps out there that I have been lusting over. These are one of those, but there are a few even more affordable options I’ve picked out below. I love a great statement shoe paired with simple basics. Instead of wearing your regular blue jeans, swap it out for white for a fresh look – it is a small change but it makes a big difference!
By the way, I finally taught myself how to do collages in photoshop with the help of this fabulous website. What do you think? I can’t wait to play around with layers and make even better outfit posts and product collages on the blog!
Have a great week!

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!
