It seems like August is always a busy month for me. This month has been filled with so many changes and the one thing that keeps me sane is that I get to pick out my outfits ad organize myself. We’ve been dealing with building a house, and the stress that comes with it. Plus I’ve been switched over to a new team in the past few weeks with a little bit more work than usual. It’s hard sometimes. And it will get harder as I start packing for our move to our new house.

Winter/Spring Wardrobe refresh!

clothes, clothing, sales, Uncategorized, zara

There are so many post holidays sales going on and I’m enjoying the options available right now. I’ve recently downsized my wardrobe and donated/sold a lot of items that I no longer love or fit in. This means I’ve got some space and a budget to shop!

 I’ve scavenged through the sites to find some key pieces for my Spring wardrobe.

Here are my favorite items from Zara. 




Blue Blazer with zippers now 29.99 USD


Multicolored Printed Dress 22.99 USD


Maroon Striped Shirt 19.99 USD


Denim Distressed Jacket $29.99 USD


Embroidered dress 15.99 USD

I’ve been loving the color combination of red, white, and black. White and black are simple enough that you can wear anything with them. I’ve combined various pieces of black, white and red this week to wear them in 5 different outfits without looking like I’ve been wearing the same thing over and over again. 

I’m in love with how the red makes these closet staples pop!

Work Week Wear: July 10

This week was exhausting. From being at work from 8-6 everyday then rushing home to pray, nap to preparing Iftar followed by taraweeh prayers, I’ve been super busy. Plus factor in the fact that we still have not found an apartment that we like. I can’t wait until Eid to spend some time relaxing with my parents.

H&M is generally very affordable on a daily basis. But add in a clearance sale and you definitely get more bang for your buck! 
Keep in mind that sizes and stock might be limited so hurry up and place your order or check out the store!

Sleeveless Blouse $12 USD $17.95


Long Jersey Dress $15 USD $29.95


Long Shirt Dress $15 USD $34.95

This dress is perfect with a pair of leggings for the Taraweeh night prayers. It’s light, modest and trendy all at the same time.

Glittery Pants $25 USD $39.95

So the pants might be a bit too shiny for some people, but you can totally pull them off for Eid-al-Fitr or any other formal occasion 😉 

Memorial Day Weekend Getaway- Houston

clothing, dallas, fashion, hijabi, houston, Lifestyle, memorial day, rainy weather, style

As many of you know, my parents live in Houston and I make the long, tiring 4.5 hour drive from Dallas to see them at least once a month. 

Hubs and I usually drive Friday night and stay until Sunday afternoon, but this weekend we’ll be staying until Monday evening because we both have Memorial Day off. 

My weekend bag is usually packed with various outfits and accessories. Our weekends in Houston are unplanned and mostly spontaneous filled with dinners, parties and other activities. 

This Memorial Day weekend, my parents have a party planned on Saturday, a lunch with one of my best friends, a concert and a potential trip to Galveston or Kemah. 

As you can tell, my weekends in Houston are crazy!

Take a look at what I’ve packed for this weekend trip.

Monday– Errands & Drive back to Dallas

Traveling and running errands calls for a casual outfit. Jeans are my go-to bottoms for days when I have to run errands. I wanted to incorporate red, white & blue into my outfit to represent Memorial Day and all the fallen heroes who helped protect our freedom today.
