With the official start of fall – it is the perfect time to bring out my puffer vests! I currently have 3 in my closet – I’m likely to get more by the end of the season! I find it is the perfect piece for layering – especially on those colder fall days. For this look I paired my favorite pair of skinny jeans, with a pretty pink lace front sweater from the limited, my saddle colored puffer vest from Jcrew, and tan booties.

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!

A few friends have asked me why I usually wear sunglass in all my pictures. One simple answer: it is because I feel like I always look tired! Juggling a 10 month old, work, and everything at home gets exhausting! I shouldn’t complain because thankfully, Zara is pretty great. But I now have a whole new appreciation for my own mom, I only hope to be as amazing to Zara!
I took a couple days off from blogging to catch up on a few things and reconnect with family and friends! My house is finally clean and organized (lets see how long this will last)! I also was super excited to catch up with a few friends last week, and my family on the weekend.
On the style: with summer soon coming to an end, I want to maximize wearing my colored pants! I paired blue pants from Zara, with a black and white blouse from Mango, I topped it off with some edgy heels.
Hope you guys are having a great week!

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!

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 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!
