Stripes and Booties

First off, if you haven’t voted yet, you can still vote and help me with a trip to New York Fashion Week as the brand ambassador for Diamondere jewelry! I honestly don’t like to do contests that require you guys to sign up for things, or do a lot of work in general because who has the time?! But this one is really easy – you just like the Diamondere Facebook page, and vote for my entry to the contest. There is a place where you can put your information to enter you to win $250 worth of jewelry – but if you just want to skip that part and just put in your vote – that is totally fine. You can vote every hour if you want! Contest ends on August 23rd!

Also, I’ve updated the shortcut to all of my my recent outfit posts here.

About today’s look – we had a bit of a chill in temps today, so I thought I’d whip out some of my favorite things for fall and create an outfit post.

 I was so excited to find this skirt and cropped sweater combo while shopping online for some fall updates to my wardrobe. If you want to wear a crop top to work, this is the one to pick. You can even pull the skirt up higher and cover up any midriff. I love the classic stripe, and I know I will get a lot of wear out of these pieces because I can style each in a variety of ways. The top can be paired with high-rise jeans, or over a dress, and the skirt can be worn with a tank or t-shirt, or with a blouse tucked in. 

The booties are the perfect transitional fall shoe, the heel is high but it is chunky so it is actually really comfortable. My Tory Burch Robinson Satchel is one of my absolute favorite bags – I seriously take this bag on almost every flight I go on. I’m pretty hard on my bags, and this one has stayed in great shape! I love it in black as well – it is a great color and style for work.

What are some of your favorite pieces for fall?

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!
