I always get excited about September – maybe it is because it reminds me of going back to school and the start of cooler weather. Its the season of vests, boots, and sweaters! I’m not a big fan of freezing cold snowy weather, but I do love fall weather. There are a few things on my fall wish list that I will be sharing with you soon!
Its no secret that I love the color green, and that I try to max the usage of my colored pants! I wore this outfit for a family outing when we were in Philly. I love these forest green pants I found at Jcrew in beginning of the summer. They are the perfect colored pant that you can transition into fall with. For this look I paired it with a black and white stripe shirt from H&M and simple strap heels. I also wore by fabulous tassel necklace from T&J designs!

Happy belated Labor day all!
I hope you guys have been well. I took a small break from blogging to enjoy some time with my family! If you guys follow me on Instagram (@Hashtagglamour) – you probably know that I was in Philly for most of last week for my cousins wedding. It was a blast. I always feel exhausted but centered when I come back from a family reunion. Exhausted, because we usually stay up really late every night catching up and chatting about old times. Centered, because I really believe family is where the heart is! I was fortunate enough to grow up in a close knit family – where my cousins were around all the time. So it is always nice to see them – its like going back to my roots. Plus, it was the first time many of my aunts, uncles and cousins met Zara – so it made me really happy to see how much love everyone had for her.
Enough of the mushy gushiness! Although I’m sad to see summer go – I’m super excited about the fall! Fall is one of my favorite seasons. This week I am going to start posting some of my favorite summer/fall transitionary looks! So stay tunned!
On the style: I bought these pants last year from Banana Republic on super sale! When I went to Philly and my cousin threw an amazing Carnival party (WITH HORSES!!) I busted them out! I matched the pants with a simple white shirt, a tribal looking statement piece from Anthropology, and tan booties. I was going for an overall chic tribal look!
I hope you guys have a fantastic week!

I can’t wait for the weekend! It has been a crazy two weeks of travel and I just want to have a laid back weekend in the city. One of those awesome summer weekends filled with catching up with friends, brunching, a stroll in the park, fireworks, shopping…oh the list is endless!
On the style – I’m a total sucker for blush tones – especially in the summer time. I feel this palette is very soft, pretty, romantic and overall very feminine. I love the pinks, creams, and beiges. I picked up these pants at Uniqlo in NYC this past weekend and I was excited to dress them up! I paired them with a basic cream button up, heels, and a statement piece.

This past weekend my family and I took a trip to New York City! We went to visit family and celebrate our 6 year wedding anniversary! We have been to NYC a bunch of times before, but let me just say NYC with a baby is a whole different experience – but in a good way! We did some shopping, ate at many different places, but also did some kid friendly things like Central Park, and visited FAO Schwarz. We were moving at a much slower pace – but it was still nice.
Zara is almost 10 months now, crawling and discovering new things everyday (she is currently climbing on me trying to reach the computer keys!) So when we flew to NYC I was a little nervous on how she would react on the plane, thankfully she played and fell asleep. I’ll post pics later this week!
On the style – Its not a secret that I love business casual outfits, and the color green! So when I found this blouse at The Limited I was super excited. I matched it with green cropped pants from Jcrew, heels, and a few gold accessories.

Happy Wednesday Everyone (or should I say mom since she is probably the only one reading the blog since I went MIA). I apologize! Its been a crazy week with vacation, work, Ramadan, and overall life in general! But I’m back and ready! I have fun projects and updates that I am excited to share with you soon. Did you guys get a chance to check out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? I went the first day and grabbed some awesome additions to my wardrobe that I will post on the blog in the next couple of weeks!
On the style – So this top is actually a shirt dress and a fabulous find from Nordstrom Rack! I usually wear this dress to work with a pair of tights. I thought I would experiment with it a little – so I tucked it in to my favorite white pants, and paired it with blue heels. I dressed it up with a gold necklace and accessories. Its a great look to wear to work or dress up to wear to a dinner party!

Happy July 4th everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying their day off with family or friends! Here is my red, white & blue outfit in honor of Independence day. I picked up this blouse from Jcrew and paired it with white crop pants. I loved dressing it up with red heels, bag and a statement piece!
Have a safe and happy Independence day weekend!

Happy Wednesday ya’ll! (one day closer to the long weekend!)
There were so many great sales going on this past weekend that I couldn’t resist shopping a bit! I picked up these checkered cropped pants from Ann Taylor Loft. I really liked the pattern and they are a light and airy fabric, which makes it great for summer. For this particular look I paired it with light orange cardigan from Jcrew Factory and of course a pretty statement piece!
Also, did you guys get a chance to see that Donna Karen is debuting its new DKNY Ramadan capsule collection! It is a 12 piece collection which the clothing is a little longer, modern, and have a more modest silhouette. Check out the DKNY website for the collection lookbook.

It is July 1st! Can you believe half the year is already over – where has the time gone? I’m gearing up for the long weekend, as usual we will head to Michigan to spend sometime with family and friends, have BBQ and enjoy some fireworks. Can’t wait!
The pants to tops ratio in my closet is disproportional, I have way too many pants and not enough shirts to match them all. But that didn’t stop me from getting these pleated front jogger pants! I’m always a little weary of pleated front pants because I am only 5’2 and it sometimes just doesn’t look right. But when I tried these on I loved them!
For this look, I paired the jogger pants with a blue blouse, a blue floral blazer, pretty heels, and a few gold accessories, including a statement piece!

Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend. Here is the outfit I previewed on Instagram on Friday.
Since I was little, I’ve always loved the color pink. Its such a fun and vibrant color. So when I found these pants at H&M (on sale!) I grabbed them. They are great because they are a trouser pants, so I can dress them up for work, or dress them down for a summer BBQ. On this occasion I dressed it up with a black peplum top, and a statement piece. I love peplum tops, its very figure flattering- as it is fitted then flares out.
This weekend was also the start of Ramadan! Ramadan Kareem to everyone who observes this month. Suhail and I were a little more excited to celebrate this year because its Zara’s first Ramadan. So we had an extra special Iftar (breaking of the fast), the first day. We had a few friends over and dressed Zara up. Its great celebrating a bunch of firsts with a baby!

I Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Here is the details on the pink chambray outfit I previewed on Instagram last week! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love a great chambray shirt! It looks great with everything. This time, I paired it with light pink pants from Jcrew, and a pretty statement piece.
