Blogger Nation with Madison & Berkeley

If you are new to the blog, Blogger Nation is a series I’ve been doing  for over a year now in partnership with a group of amazing bloggers from across the country. Each season we choose our favorite brands and trends to feature.  I’m excited to share today’s Blogger Nation series we are featuring Madison & Berkeley. a label which can be found at Nordstrom stores. The pieces are high-quality and on trend, but also sophisticated and classic.

I don’t know if my love of bodysuits can be attributed to the Kardashians, who seem to favor the style, or if its due to my own increasing frustration when it comes to fussing with my clothes – i.e. no more low-rise jeans, half-tucked blouses, skin tight or short skirts – because when chasing a five year old around all day, ain’t nobody got time for that. Also why I’m switching to comfortable shoes these days, lots of sneakers, and these Corso Como sandals that are equally cute as they are wearable. Today’s look is featuring my favorite bodysuit, which you may have seen  previously styled here . More bodysuit inspiration that I’ve shared recently is this one in camel or this one in blush.

I wore this yesterday to go spend Easter with Adam’s grandparents, where we hunted easter eggs and baskets, played games, and had a fabulous brunch. Adam and his cousins have so much fun and each year as they get older, the competition to find the most eggs gets even more fierce. Luckily we had a group of good sports and it was a fun, incident free day – a true miracle, ha!

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!
