Paisley Pinks

Salamsssss everyone. I know it's been FOREVER... the last time I posted was literally LAST YEAR. I was completely consumed in purchasing my first home back in Novemeber and then I went to Iran for a month to visit my dad and extended family. I made the conscious decision to sit out on blogging/vlogging while there and fully invested myself into the trip (with the exception of a little instagram-ing). I spent quality time with my dad and also spent a lot of time in the gym which was quite the experience... (my first time in an all women's gym and being able to workout without my hijab). When I got back from my trip, it was straight into busy season at work, and here I am now.. finally doing a post! As some of you know, snow storm Jonas hit hard during my birthday weekend but my girls threw me a little get together brunch the next weekend to celebrate turning 26! The weather was great in the mid 50's so I was able to get away with wearing some 'lighter' clothes with a light coat on top. I can't believe I'm 26 but I've accomplished a lot Alh. and my most recent accomplishment that I'm most proud of is buying my first house :).. it's a bit of a fixer upper but I'm looking forward to hopefully sharing a little bit of my home style with you all in the future :)

Ahfif Hijab Review

Hijab // Jeans // Hat // Similar Jacket

This outfit was put together around this lovely hijab which I received from Ahfif (linked above). I love navy blue this season and I was thrilled when I found a navy jacket and hat at H&M to match. (I couldn't find the jacket online but I still see it in stores so you can go on the hunt if you want it!) I love Ahfif because it's basically any girls dream come true.. they do the shopping for you! They bring together the cutest items from around the world and different designers all in one place for you to shop from. Make sure you check them out for the latest trends and styles!

Denim on Top

Sometimes I like to mix things up and wear denim on top instead of always wearing jeans! Here's a fun fall look that could easily be made more casual with flats or black sneakers!

Mixing Textures

Salams, Hello, Howdy everyone! I know it's basically been a month since I last posted - my bad. Many of you know blogging is a side hobby for me, and although I wish I had more time for it, SO many other things are a priority in my life. I hope that everyone can understand that juggling a demanding full time career, as well as being dedicated to many other things along with blogging, gets hectic at times. Lately, I've been working on some personal goals and therefore have not had a chance to blog as much as I used to. I hope to get back in the swing of things, soon iA. I appreciate everyone who has been patient with me, and continues to show support in lieu of my sporadic posts and lack of consistency. You guys, are the real MVPs! 

Alright, now that that's done.. on to this post! In my posts I have started to hyper-link each item I'm wearing to the online listing so it's easier for people who want to purchase them vs. just saying what store they're from. For items that are older and are not available online, I will try to post similar or substitute items that would also look good with the outfit. I hope this is helpful for everyone :)

This look is one of my favorites because it is so comfortable. The jogger style pants and the big fluffy sweatshirt make me feel like I'm sitting in sweats- but still looks professional/chic enough to wear out or even to the office. I paired it with a tweed blazer - which I know kinda look chunky on top of the over-sized sweatshirt, but I didn't mind it! I also went for a mixed texture look since the top, pants, and blazer all had a different texture. And, of course, I had to throw on a hat! 

PS. I linked the shoes above to where I could find them online, however I purchased mine at Marshalls for $35.. gotta love Marshalls! Also, the top I'm wearing is from Target but I couldn't find it online. I just bought it so it may be available in stores and just not online yet.
