Summer Nights

With the end of summer coming too fast – I am trying to squeeze every last drop in! I’m going to miss these amazing summer nights! I wore this casual outfit on an evening stroll with a few friends. Earlier this summer I found this lace top  at Forever 21 – I loved it instantly because it is very causal yet super chic. I paired it with olive green cargo pants from Zara and my favorite Converse sneakers!

Pink Peplum

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!

Whiteout

Although, I don’t follow the “no white pants after labor day” rule to a tee, I do maximize wearing white and light colored pants during the summer months! White pants/jeans bring a whole new look to my wardrobe every summer!

For this look I paired by favorite white jeans with just a simple plain white tee and a bold statement piece. I love the way white on white looks – fresh, clean, and simple.

Summer Luau

Happy Monday Everyone,

So this weekend my husband and I began to tackle cleaning out our apartment. We were late with spring cleaning this year – so I guess now we are summer cleaning. Anyway, in the midst of us cleaning we realized we are in need of a living room makeover. We have great furniture, but we definitely need to spruce it up! Not to mention we have all the baby stuff (jumparoo, baby swing, high chair, bouncer….the list is endless) that we need to work around. Some of the furniture we had previously we got rid of because we didn’t want Baby Z to get hurt. How do you make your living space modern and chic, at the same time baby friendly? It our new project over the next few weeks – I will be sure to keep giving updates!

On the look, I wore this outfit a few weeks back for my nieces first birthday party – It was a luau themed party. I wanted something easy and that I could run around in because Baby Z was with me. So I chose to wear colored pants – I love colored pants, I have so many different ones. I feel like you can dress them up or dress them down with any top! I chose these peach colored pants with a floral top and flats! I dressed it up with a gold necklace and bracelets. What different colored pant do you have?

Pink Chambray

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.

Summer Floral

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Fathers day weekend. This was the first weekend in a long time that Suhail, Z and I stayed in Chicago. Can I just say…I have a love hate relationship with Chicago. I hate it in the winter when the temperature is like -12, but I LOVE it in the summer. Nothing beats Chicago summers. The weather this past weekend was absolutely perfect. We spent a good amount of time outdoors this weekend with Baby Z – we took her for a stroll in her new CityMini Stroller (she finally fits in it) and visited the park – she loved the baby swing! How did you guys spend your Fathers day weekend?

On the style, I’m not a huge floral person – but I loved this Forever 21 top – the blue flowers were calling my name! I paired it with jeans, A tan belt and heels and an olive green bag (an amazing Nordstrom Rack find!). I thought the colors went well together – all earthy tones.
