Tommy Bahama Denim and Holiday Handbag Giveaway

A great pair of denim needs to stand the test of time, and in my case with a young (and very messy) child running around, it also needs to stand a lot of time in the washing machine. A few months ago I partnered with Tommy Bahama to introduce their new line of denim, and after wearing these a *lot* this Fall, I think they are such a great pair of jeans. A lot of work went into the redesign of the Tommy Bahama denim line, and there is just enough stretch to make it fit me perfectly. Before I was showing (see here) I loved how the hips had just enough give so I could move around without worrying about that dreaded waist to hip gap that any girl with curves has experienced. Right now, at six months pregnant, I’m wearing my usual size but I have an elastic holding my button closed – haha.

The denim range includes a variety of styles including your classic skinny, boyfriend, cropped flare, and these more traditional flare. They are also available in several washes, from deep indigo to a light beach-washed color. I also love this cashmere poncho from the Fall collection, it is so warm and cozy yet very light and easy to wear.

I wore this over the weekend for a little family time, catching a movie and going out to my favorite Mexican restaurant. After spending most of my week cleaning and organizing my home  I was so ready to take a break and just have some fun.

So now that the weather is really getting cooler, the election is over, and I am ready for something to make me feel happy and also get me into the Holiday spirit! Today we are giving away a great bag and wallet from Tommy Bahama’s new holiday line!

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!
