First off, if you are like me and pat yourself on the back any time you get a really good deal shopping – then listen up – Shopbop is having a huge sale, which officially starts tomorrow *but* they are allowing me to share the news with my followers so you all get to shop the sale a day early! Just use code EVENT17 at checkout to get your discount. (Get 20% off of all orders under $500, and 25% off of all orders above $500!).  Also – they are an Amazon company so you get free 2-day shipping with your Prime membership! I’ve got my eye on the premium Champion pieces, and also the Re/Done brand which they just started carrying. (I recently picked up the Levi’s Wedgie straight jean and I highly recommend.)

On to the look – if there were one piece of clothing to perfectly describe me, it would have to be a sequin embellished kimono jacket. I’m very much a boho flower child at heart, (blame it on my Nor Cal upbringing), but at the same time I love to be full on glam every now and then, (blame that on my Pakistani heritage ;)). So…a drapey kimono with metallic sequins in a pretty floral print, pretty much sums me up. Of course to balance all of that bling, I’m wearing my Spring favorite style – espadrilles. I wouldn’t call it a trend because it comes back season after season, but if you do want to be trendy, the platform espadrille is the way to go. I prefer ones with a pointed toe for that leg lengthening effect.

Now that festival season is upon us, even though I probably won’t be making it out to Coachella, Burning Man, or even Lollapalooza  this year – I can at least dress the part – and also coordinate with my doll Sophia while I’m at it! Scroll down to see my little Rose make her first official appearance on the blog. Besides giving me major side eye, she was a good sport and of course she looks adorable in her Zadig & Voltaire sweater which was a gift <3

Thanks so much for visiting as always 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!
