New Orleans-French Quarter-Travel Blogger-Garden District-Outfits for New Orleans-NOLA-Hijab

Happy Monday!! I'm back from a few days of traveling in New Orleans with my sister. We had such a blast exploring this beautiful city. My sister and I have been travel buddies for nearly a decade. Since she is expecting we wanted to go on last sister trip before the baby comes. We dubbed this our Sister Moon trip and the goal of the trip was to just eat our way through NOLA. I have so much to share over the next couple days about where we stayed, ate, and the sites we visited.

Today I'm sharing my looks for what I wore during the trip. I do my best not to over pack and thankfully I managed to pack efficiently for this trip! I failed at capturing my evening looks - I was more focused on food than fashion - oops! Here are the looks I wore during the day while exploring New Orleans!

I'm thrilled to share the exciting news that I will officially be an Aunt come January 2018!! My darling sister is expecting a baby boy and I couldn't be happier. Not many people know this, but life long dream is to be that cool Aunt - I just want to spoil them rotten and take them to Disney theme parks! I'm driving my sister crazy with all the baby stuff (I've already picked out his bed, car seat, stroller, and bedding) and I'm not even sorry about it! #AuntyLalz

Now I won't go all crazy Aunt and be talking baby stuff - yet! My sister told me on my birthday the gender of the baby - a boy - and I was over the moon. Talk about best birthday gift ever!! As soon as my sister told me I wanted to get a gift to congratulate her. Thanks to Knack they have made gifting super easy! I'm personally a huge fan of gift sets and love the idea of gifting a box of cute items instead of just one gift and Knack has a wide selection of curated gift sets for any occasion. I normally go out and build my own gift sets however with Knack each gift set is beautifully packaged and includes a complimentary custom message - making the whole process seamless and easy!

I quickly started scrolling through the baby gift set collection and fell in love with the Snuggle Bunny Gift Set. I can totally imagine taking photos of my little nephew in the adorable knit hat and sweater. My sister and brother-in-law absolutely adored the gift set and it made it all the more real that a little bundle of joy will be joining our family in the new year.

Knack has also launched an initiative to help Hurricane Harvey Survivors. You can purchase one of three curated gift boxes from their website and Knack will give the same gift to an organization supporting those impacted by the Hurricane. 100% of the proceeds from all purchases will support the relief efforts.

The boxes come in two themes with corresponding recipient groups: 

-Send a Moment of Play Knack with entertainment options for kids of all ages and the same gift will be sent to children in shelters.
-Send one of two toiletries Knacks as a gift for those displaced by the storm, and the same Knack will be sent to those adults in shelters. These Knacks, the Uplift Houston: Quick Refresh Kit and Uplift Houston: A Restful Pause, are comfort gifts for those impacted.

All proceeds from the sales of these boxes will be used to purchase more boxes for those affected. The items included are in direct response to the outcries of and needs of those impacted by the natural disaster.

The Knack packaging, which will enclose the items sent to recipients, is 100% recycled and recyclable and will not contribute to the waste efforts that the city of Houston may face. Concurrently, the Knack boxes are filled with items that are largely recycled, recyclable and that have a low carbon footprint. The products in the gifted Knacks include items from Texas-based company Bright Beam Goods and Seattle-based MiiR which has contributed to over 44 clean water and health projects worldwide.

Have a lovely day!

I wore this look last week to an event and got so many questions about this jumpsuit. I picked it up at my local Anthropologie and to my luck they had the petite in store and it was an additional 40% off sale that day. I didn't think twice about getting it. It truly is the comfiest jumpsuit I own!! I'm a huge fan of jumpsuits to begin with and I am excited to style this one year round. I will definitely be styling it with a sweater and even a blazer and some booties.

The darling Rawan captured these photos at the event and she nailed the golden hour shots!

Have a lovely day!

Jeans and a white top are my go to outfit for the "I have nothing to wear" dilemma. It's fail proof outfit combo that never lets me down. This combo can be dressed down with just denim and a white tee (seen here) and dresses seasonally with a white sweater and booties (seen here), the look is versatile. My favorite denim pants are from J. Crew and Banana Republic, I've tried all the high end brands in all styles and cuts, but for some reason J. Crew and Banana Republic always work for me! A good pair of denim is a closet staple!

I'm currently on the hunt for a pair of black denim pants! Any suggestions?!

Have a lovely weekend!

Sunflowers & Sweater Weather











Sweater: Banana Republic | Denim: J. Crew | Booties: c/o Famous Footwear | Scarf: Haute Hijab | Bag: Free People (similar) | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Nordstrom | Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! It seems summer is officially over and it's time to gear up for fall and all the things that comes with it! That includes back to school, pumpkin spice lattes, sunflower fields, apple orchards, hay rides, apple cider, and much more! I absolutely LOVE fall and being a midwest gal I love to transition my wardrobe into fall with sweaters and booties. 

The weather is starting to cool down but not so much to pull out my wool coats just yet therefore I transition my wardrobe with ankle booties. These peep toe ones from Famous Footwear in the perfect cognac shade are a wonderful transitional piece. I love pairing booties with skinny jeans and a sweater for the perfect fall look. This outfit has you ready for any adventure such as galavanting among the sunflowers, or going to a pumpkin patch, and even picking apples at the orchard! I can even see myself wearing these booties with a cute sweater dress.

What is your go to fall transitional look??

Thanks for stopping by!

Pleated Midi Dress


Nothing says like summer like a pretty white dress, oh and a delicious snow cone!! I finally had the chance to go to Peterson's Snowballs. I am borderline obsessed with snow cones. When I was living in Hawaii for a month I had one nearly every day! These snow cones from Paterson's totally took me back to my Hawaii days/

I've been living in dresses these last couple weeks of summer. I love throwing a cropped denim jacket over a dress and pairing it with sandals to give it a more casual feel. I find midi and maxi dresses way more comfortable than jeans and a tee during the summer heat! I'm going to try and soak up these last couple weeks of summer before I have to trade in my dresses for sweaters!

What does everyone have planned for Labor Day weekend? Wishing everyone a lovely long weekend!!
