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. 


Monday Blues



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.

Saturday House Party & Errands

Saturday outfit

Top: H&M Striped top

Blazer: Forever 21 Tailor Woven Blazer Burgundy 

Bottom: Target Linen Wide Leg Pant Merona

 Shoes: Just Fab Adelia Burgundy * referral

Accessories: Fossil Georgia Glitz Three-Hand Stainless Steel Watch – Rose , Walmart gold cuff (similar)

I ended up changing into Indian clothes for the house party. 

Sunday Lunch date & Rahat AK concert

sunday outfit

Top: Lucky Brand Floral Wrap Dress ( on sale $15!!)

Jeans: Forever 21 Low-Rise Skinny Jeans

This casual outfit was made a bit more ‘fancy’ with accessories. I added a pair of heels and jewelry to dress up the jeans and wrap dress for the concert. 

Monday– Errands & Drive back to Dallas

Saturday outfit

Top: Forever 21 Belted Plaid Shirt Dress

Jeans: Demi Curve Boot Cut Jeans


Accessories: Forever 21


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.

Vacation from Dallas!

Beauty, Lifestyle

It’s been 2 years since I’ve moved to Dallas. We travel back and forth to Houston constantly throughout the year but it is usually for the weekend and rarely do I get to spend time with my parents as well as my friends.

This week I’ve been able to spend time with my parents, hang out with my friends and relax without worrying about what to cook.

Rodeo Houston 2015

Rodeo Houston 2015

This was my second time going to the Rodeo. Houston’s Rodeo comes around once a year for about 20 days. From carnival rides to fried everything(oreos, twinkies), the rodeo is essentially as Texan as it can get!

Coffee Dates With M&L

Coffee Dates With M&L

M&L are two of my closest friends. The two of us studied at University of Houston and essentially bonded over textbooks, coffees, and life. M is essentially my nerd soul mate. L makes me work harder and be focused on success. Definitely my two best friends. Sadly, I don’t get to see them very often.

Restoration Hardware

Restoration Hardware

Highland Village has such posh shops. From Restoration Hardware to Kate Spade, I could spend all day loitering around. How gorgeous are these chandeliers from Restoration Hardware. One day, when we buy a house, we’ll probably purchase everything! (*Wishful thinking*)

Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb from Lush Cosmetics


I ended up buying bath bombs & face masks from Lush Cosmetics. I rotate between two fresh face masks – Brazened Honey & BB Seaweed. Maybe I’ll do a separate post on these products.

Overall, family and friends are such a vital part of my life. Hubs is back in Dallas and I miss him dearly. The next few weeks are going to be a bit difficult. Can’t wait to see him on Saturday!
