Military Jacket and Leather Joggers

Yesterday Tom was home sick so I got to take advantage and do a few things I’ve been meaning to do. One – get a pedicure – something I’ve been wanting to do since Sophia was born but somehow never got the time, and Two – have a mother-son date with Adam. I’ve been so wrapped up with the new baby I missed my Adam time, and I know he feels it too. He was the only one for six whole years – commanding all of our attention 24/7, and now splitting that time with a new little baby must be tough for him. We went to go see Beauty and The Beast, which wasn’t a hit with him – but I absolutely loved it. Some of the scenes were a little too scary for him, and the songs didn’t capture his attention as much as the reclining buttons on the theater chairs…so we ended up leaving before the movie ended. He did love the ice cream shop visit after, so all was good and I would say the date was a success.

I took the opportunity dress up in a comfy chic outfit and get sick Tom to come outside and snap a few pics :). Since I finally got that pedi I decided to break out these velvet heels I’ve had for months but never really felt like wearing while I was pregnant. Joggers have been great during my transitioning period getting back to my pre pregnancy weight. I love that these are faux leather so they look a little more dressed up than sweats. I also love a great military jacket – and this one is especially fun with the flared sleeves (also styled here) – but I’ve linked to some of my other favorite military jackets below.

Thanks for visiting as always, have a great weekend!

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!
