Weekend Uniform

Today’s look is accurately titled ‘weekend uniform’ because I wear a variation of this pretty much every weekend. It is probably the easiest way to look pulled together, but still be comfortable enough to, say,  indulge in Sunday brunch without needing to change in to your ‘fat pants’ right after. The key here is the details, a pair of pearl earrings and an up-do make you look like you are dressed up, but the boyfriend jeans, t-shirt, and trench are super comfy and really casual at the same time. I had to add my new Isabel Marant pumps that I scored from the gilt city warehouse sale, because they are so chic and at the same time (going with the theme of today’s post) really comfortable. This look would go just as well with a pair of flats, which I often do. I prefer pointed toe, because it looks a little more polished than a ballet flat, and I believe it lengthens a leg just as much as a nude pump would.

Another trick I learned, with boyfriend jeans, if you roll them up just to the middle of your calf, that is probably the most flattering length. Sometimes with a boyfriend jean rolled to your ankle you can just look a little frumpy.

By the way – I just opened up a little shop on instagram, @shopzahrascloset – and I am slowly adding pictures of things in my closet for sale. Check me out and follow if you want to be the first to know of what I am selling! I did this because my closet it just getting ridiculously full and I find stuff in there that is amazing, in perfect condition, many still with tags, that I just don’t get a chance to wear. I am also constantly shopping and I know that isn’t going to end any time soon- so i thought this would be the answer! The response has been amazing, i sold 3 items within just hours of posting!

Thanks as always for stopping by and visiting! xoxoBurberry_Trench_Henry_and_Belle_JeansBoyfriend_Jeans_Burberry_Trench Burberry_Trench_Coat_Boyfriend_Jeans

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!
