Cold shoulder and Lace ups

Here in the states the brand CAT is mostly known for its trucks, and also tough work clothes and steel-toe boots, but I’m telling you right now, that is all about to change. A few weeks ago I was invited to attend a press preview of CAT Footwear’s current and upcoming shoe lines for men and women, and I was blown away by what I saw. What really impressed me was both the history of the brand and the thoughtfulness and process that goes into the design.

You all know I love a good brand story, and CAT has a great one. The hashtag #Earthmover is used because CAT, if you aren’t already aware, is a company that has literally built structures all over the world with their earth moving trucks and equipment. I was surprised to learn they are already well known for fashion all around the world – like there are already CAT boutiques in major shopping centers. As far as the design process, a lot of attention to detail and precision goes into the creation of the footwear and clothing. Right now they are creating designs that are going to go in to production in two years, once everything is tested and approved. In this fast fashion world that we live in, that is a huge stride in the right direction for quality over quantity.

But even a great brand story and design process alone is nothing without some great shoes, am i  right? I am in love with these leather lace up boots that I’ve styled in today’s post. The boot itself has an edgy vibe with the metal detail, but its the the lace up feature that makes it really cool and timeless. These boots also come in a distressed brown color called ‘peanut’ and a distressed light grey color called ‘pewter’, which is perfect for a more casual or country style- but I just loved the ‘rock and roll’ look of the black ones. They are also incredibly lightweight which is so important to me, especially now being pregnant – I have enough weight to lug around on my own! Check out the full women’s collection here.

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 ❤️

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!
