Denim Jacket and Joggers

A few days ago we took a trip to a new park that opened up nearby. Adam was beyond excited because I told him we could have a picnic, so he helped me pack our picnic basket with all of his favorite snacks and a blanket to sit on. He even got himself dressed faster than I’ve ever witnessed before – granted I had to change him because he put on shorts and a t-shirt that was about two sizes to small, but I was still impressed by his effort.

The play area of the park ended up being closed that day for maintenance and flower planting, but that didn’t dim Adam’s excitement for the picnic. We watched as families arrived and left disappointed after learning the park was closed. We ended up spreading out our blanket in the picnic area which was still open and eating our string cheese and chips, then we made up games to play with some sticks in the dirt. Other parents soon joined us in the picnic area and began to do the same. Bath time required a little extra scrubbing later, but we had a lot of fun. I swear I learn new lessons from my babies all the time, this time I was reminded that life is truly what you make of it – if the playground is closed, get some sticks and go play in the dirt.

About the look – as a mom and a someone with no work dress code, I wear jogger pants a lot. They are the closest things to pajamas in terms of comfort, but they still make you look put together. I am not kidding when I say these are my favorite pair. I have them in two colors – black and olive green. They are a thicker fabric, with a moto detail, and the ankle area stays up if you pull it at the calf. I also like the thicker tie waist belt. It makes them feel  a little more luxe. I also recently got this wallet on strap bag which I now wear every day because I will wear it as a cross body bag or I can throw it in the baby bag without adding too much bulk. It is the perfect size to fit an ID and credit cards, a phone, some makeup, and keys. This is pretty much my daily uniform – the perfect weekend casual outfit, or just for regular days at home learning lessons from my kiddos.

Hope you are having 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!
