Trasnsitional Style with Sage Threads & Co


Thanks for visiting! I am back after the longest hiatus I’ve ever taken since I started this blog way back in 2012 – I went one full week without posting! Granted I still posted here and there on social media – I had to make sure everyone knew I was still alive lest they start worrying about me. In any other job I’ve ever worked in my life, I would take vacations, and that meant to completely leave behind any work related thoughts or worries and recharge. But for some reason since I started blogging, I never made that same connection to taking time off – since it is my job but also my life – my ‘vacations’ actually turned out to be even more work than usual. The feeling of not working was very strange, but ultimately I decided it was necessary and also liberating.

Today’s post is a brand new Blogger Nation collaboration featuring pieces you can wear now and into fall from Sage Threads Co., which is an online retailer curated with the perfect boho chic essentials. Everything from breezy blouses to dresses, denim, and accessories. I love that I can find pieces here that aren’t everywhere else, so I can make my look uniquely my own. One of my go to favorite outfits is pairing a simple cami with jeans for a casual everyday style – this one I’m wearing has an extra cute lace detail on the neck and armholes that make it really different. I wore this with boyfriend jeans and heels for brunch a week ago, and again this weekend with skinny jeans and slides for running some errands and shopping. For fall I will layer it under a great leather jacket or sleek blazer.

Off to get this Monday started! Have 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!
