Love Zahra + Sole Society + Blogger Nation

Wrapping up our Fall Blogger Nation series today *sniff sniff* (don’t worry we will be back in Winter!),  we are spotlighting our favorite boots by Sole Society. If you haven’t heard of them, you need to check out the site – they have a really nice selection of  up to the minute boots, heels, sneakers, everything.

About a month ago a friend of mine asked me for my suggestions for fall boots and these were on the top of my list. The price point is unbeatable, the boot is genuine leather, and it has a stretchy back so it will accommodate a wider calf very easily. I love how it is just barely over the knee but has a slim fit, unlike many over the knee boots that flare out at the knees, which to me looks really odd – plus the flappy knees hit each other while you walk so its like the boot equivalent of the noisy corduroy pant thigh swish. Remember that??

I’ve worn these boots at least a dozen times already, and I’ve only had them for two weeks. They are my go to when I am trying to look put together just to go out and run errands or grab a few groceries. I just throw on a light trench, jeans, and these boots and whatever t-shirt/sweatshirt/button down shirt I was already wearing and boom – I get to keep my status as a Fashion Blogger. Side note – every time I really do go out in yoga pants , zero makeup, and crazy hair those are the days when I really do run into people – of course haha.

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!
