Denim & Cheetah

Seriously where does the time go? The weekend just started like five seconds ago! I feel like I haven’t posted an outfit in a long time, but not to worry, I have some brand new outfit posts ready for you this week. I am going to be traveling a bit in the next couple of weeks (hello NYFW!), so if I don’t have a new post here, be sure to check me out on instagram: @zahra_sandberg or for more random stuff, on snapchat:

 This weekend I realized my love for animal print runs deep. I have always been sort of magnetically drawn to leopard and cheetah print in particular. It can seem tricky to pull off, lest you end up looking like you are channeling Peggy Bundy, unless you dig her style in which case, there’s nothing wrong with that!.

I especially love pairing animal print with bright bold color like orange, or with double denim as I have done in today’s post. I’m also a firm believe that a topcoat or blazer makes any outfit better, and so here I have combined two of my sartorial favorites in one look. I love it when that happens…

 I have been wearing my Rocksbox jewelry non-stop since I got it. I am seriously thinking about buying this necklace, but even if I tire of it I am glad I can just send it back and get all new pieces! You can still get your free trial of Rocksbox by using code lovezahraxoxo at checkout – I would love to hear your thoughts if you try it out so feel free to comment or email me directly.

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!
