Weekend Casual

On Mother’s Day, while Adam was still away with his grandparents, we slept in a bit and woke up ready for brunch.  If you follow me on Snapchat Lovezahra.com you know how this story goes…My favorite suburban brunch place ever, Egg Harbor (I always get the Farmers Benedict – it is divine!), was supposed to be opening up a new location even closer to me than the old one. Only, it hadn’t opened up yet and was still under construction. So I sulked for a bit but then we tried to go to the three major breakfast spots around – except each place had a two-hour or longer wait! I guess Mother’s Day brunch is sort of  a popular concept. After about 2 hours of roaming around with no prospects, we gave up and went to Mariano’s grocery store and grabbed some breakfast sandwiches, cappuccinos, and freshly squeezed OJ. It wasn’t what I had been craving for days, but it was a peaceful breakfast prepared for me, so I loved it!

Today’s look is what I wore that day, and it is also sort of my weekend uniform. I like to pair a striped top, skinny jeans, and sandals for a classic casual look. I am constantly looking for great striped tops, in different shapes and necklines.

My necklace is a new addition to my jewelry collection, and I am really excited about it. It is from a new boutique set to launch soon – called Lesouque.  I haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it because it goes with everything and it is so unique.They have curated a fantastic selection of one-of-a-kind pieces from artisans and independent designers across the globe.

They are planning on having a preview sale prior to launch, and you can sign up your email for that here: http://www.lesouque.com/earlyaccess?kid=5ZW20 . Once you have signed up, you will get an email within 48 hours and you will be alerted to the sale.

Thanks for visiting as always and I hope you are having a great week xx

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!
