The Classic Collared Shirt

Happy Monday Everyone! Whenever I can’t think of anything to wear – I always reach for a collared shirt and jeans. It is a classic look. I love a great collared shirt – its a wardrobe staple! Whether its fitted, button down, loose and flowy, sheer, cotton, silk… it never goes out of style.  This weekend when my husband and I were out running errands I had him take a few shots of me of me in my classic look! I wore this green collared shirt with white boyfriend jeans and heels.

Blushy

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.

Easy Saturday Look

Whoa – its already Wednesday?!! The weekend went by way too fast! First off – Happy Eid to everyone who is celebrating! Suhail, Zara, and I had a fun Eid weekend with our family in Michigan! Normally, Suhail and I come back rested – but this time we came back exhausted. I think we can attribute that to having too much fun! It was great seeing all of our family and friends. We go back to Michigan so often that sometimes I feel like we live in two places. I am thankful that its within driving distance – otherwise it would be really difficult especially with a 9 month old.

While we were in Michigan – My family and I got to check out the farmers market in Ann Arbor! I always forget how fun Ann Arbor is especially in the summer – there is always something fun going on! On the style: I wanted an ultimate laid back Saturday look, but still chic!  I paired a pair of boyfriend jeans with a loose top and wedges and dressed it up with accessories!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Another crazy week just flew by and I am super excited for the weekend! We will be heading to Michigan for Eid (The end of Ramadan) this weekend. I love going to Michigan, we get to spend time with family and friends and Zara gets spoiled by her grandparents! Its hard to balance work and a 9 month old, so it is really nice when we go to Michigan, because Suhail and I get some R&R (rest and relaxation). After we get back Suhail and I have made pact to go on a health food binge – I’ll let you know how that goes (or if it goes at all)! What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

So the past few days in Chicago the weather has been a little mild. I’m not complaining because I love spring and fall temperatures! I bought this sweater from Jcrew months ago thinking I would save it for later this year. But when the temp dropped I seized the opportunity and wore it last night for dinner! I love this classic look. I wore the sweater with a tank, and paired with blue jeans, wedges and gold accessories.

Have a great weekend!

Love S.

Aqua Blue

Todays look is one I would wear when I am on the go! Those are the days you want to keep it as easy and casual, but still look chic! For those days I always turn to a couple go-to pieces in my closet. With the weather being a little chilly I chose a pretty aqua blue drape sweater and paired it with a tank, grey jeans, a scarf, and flat sandals.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! This was a fun one for my family and I! Ramadan is a time of year where you want to be close with family, friends and community! Growing up in Michigan during Ramadan we  spent every weekend going to Iftar parties. So when we moved to Chicago 4 years ago I wanted to make sure we kept up with the traditions.  On Friday we hosted our Iftar party. It was great to see most of our friends here in Chicago. We of course had Iftar, dinner and dessert, but I wanted to add a few personal touches! I found a great sign off of Etsy from Optical Designs- that said “Keep Calm its Ramadan” . I also made date pops! I found the recipe from this awesome blog based in Dallas, TX called “Honey and Dates”. FInally I added some Ramadan decor around the hall from Ranoon.com.

On the Style: The funny thing is, when you start style blogging, you want to go through your closet to see what you have and what you think will look great when you put it together with different outfits. I bought these yellow snake skin design shoes from BCBG generation so long ago. I forgot I had them, so when I found them again – I wanted to plan an outfit around them!  I love neutral tones. So for this outfit I paired these fabulous cargo pants from Zara with a loose fitting tank and a tweed jacket that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! In some of the pictures, I’m carrying Baby Z’s Diaper bag (can’t leave home without it)!

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! blackandblue1blackandblueblackandblue2blackandblue3
