Green with envy

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 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

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!

Island Blues

Aloha again from Hawaii!

My husband and I went exploring around Waikiki today. We totally looked like tourists with our Nikon camera snapping pictures – but the sunshine and island breeze were so nice we didn’t care!  If you don’t know by now – I love comfy stylish pants – especially on vacation.   For my “Island Blues” look I paired casual white linen pants with a blue tee and dressed it up with a statement piece necklace.

The Laid Back Islander

Aloha!

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that my hubby and I are in Hawaii! This is the first trip we have taken alone since having the baby! We miss baby Zara dearly, but its nice to have a few days of relaxation time. Not to mention, Zara is having a blast with her grandparents!

I call this style “the laid back islander.” I wore this outfit the first morning here for breakfast oceanside. I think slouchy printed pants are a perfect casual addition to any wardrobe. I usually pair them with a plain tee, a few popping accessories, and pretty sandals. It is a casual look without forgoing fashion!

Polka Dot Blues

May-12-2014

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fabulous Mothers Day. Yesterday was my very first mothers day as a mom! I got a handbag and flowers from my husband, and daughter, and a necklace from my mom, and sister! It was an overall pretty relaxing day!

This weekend my husband and I had a lunch date with a few friends of ours. We went to Kingsbury Street Café in Lincoln Park. The food was delicious, and the chocolate muffins are to die for! To lunch I wore this look I call the “Polka Dot Blues”. If you can’t tell by now – I love jackets over everything. I think they give an overall polished look. I paired these blue pants from Akira, with a black polka dot blouse from Zara, and topped it off with a Jacket from H&M. The necklace I am wearing is from Lauren Lombardi.

I’m so happy it’s starting to get warmer out! We can finally walk outside without a warm puffy jacket! This weekend my family and I got to enjoy the sun and test out our new camera! I got the hubby to take some pictures of my look!

When I moved to Chicago 3 years ago, I fell in love with Akira. For those of you who don’t know – Akira is Chicago based clothing store that has some awesome finds! I’ve been searching for some reasonably priced black faux leather leggings and of course I found them at Akira! I paired it with a white blouse from H&M (here is one that is similar.) Finally, I topped it off with this awesome jacket from Jack by BB Dakota .

My accessories include this fabulous necklace from Kenneth Cole, my favorite bag from Mulberry, and black pumps from Ninewest.

I’m so excited to be sharing some of my awesome finds with all of you!

Have a great week!
