Fourth of July is a little more than a week away! I have to admit that 4th of July is my favorite summer holiday because it falls only four days after my birthday :)

This year I will be traveling on the fourth and may not be able to catch the fireworks - but that's okay! I'm mostly excited to style some red, white, and blue looks for the holiday weekend. I've recently become obsessed with scallop theme clothes and can't get enough of all the options at Banana Republic. I LOVE these adorable red scallop hemmed pants from BR. I find them extremely versatile to wear to work and dress them up for a night out with stilettos and a cute top. During these warmer days I've switched my hijab style to lighter fabrics like this beautiful chiffon scarf from Veilure Couture. I'm definitely packing this beautiful shawl with me for my trip to California next weekend!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely a weekend!!

Bromo Seltzer Art Tower


Baltimore has a lot of fun things to do. I constantly have a running list of places I want to visit, eat, and things to do in Baltimore. One place on my list has been the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower. The tower has such history and I was always curious to visit the clock tower since the repairs in April. A few weeks my sister and I went to the tower for a tour on Saturday.

The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is open on Saturdays from 11AM - 4PM. The guided tours cost $8 and begin at 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30. The guided tour begins with a presentation and the history of the tower followed by a tour of the clock tower. The entire tour is about an hour long and in small groups of about 15. It's a fun activity for the family on a Saturday! I really enjoying exploring the clock tower and learning a little bit more about the history of Charm City!

Happy Friday loves!!! Is it me or has it been the longest week ever?!
Sharing this look I wore this past weekend. I realized I have very few vests in my closet therefore I made a conscious effort this year to add more layering vests to my wardrobe. To my surprise they are extremely versatile! I can throw a sleeveless blazer over a blouse with jeans or even a midi dress for some extra coverage. Did I also mention this blazer is only $26 bucks!! Such a great deal!

Enjoy the weekend!

Quick Trip to Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor-Michigan-Travel Blog-Weekend in Ann Arbor

Over Memorial Day weekend I drove to Ann Arbor with my mama for a quick trip. Although the trip was super short I was able to squeeze in some fun activities. I met up with my bestie who took me to a bunch of new foodie spots, visited the peony garden, and visited my fav childhood store! I'm always blown away with all the new places that pop up in A2 every time I'm back. I really need to go back more often!

One of my favorite things to do in Ann Arbor at the start of summer is visit The Peony Garden at Nicholas Arboretum. There are hundreds of peonies to see in the garden and the peony fragrance is intoxicating. The  garden is usually in bloom from Memorial Day to mid-June. I recommend visiting early morning or late evening around sunset!

I met up with my bestie from high school for a food adventure. She is a marketing coordinator at Zingerman's Food Services and knows all the best foodie spots! We started off with the most delicious cheese, olive, and jam tray at Zingerman's Deli. The pickled onion was AMAZING! Afterward we went across the street to Miss Kim for some delicious Korean food. I had the house citrus soda - highly recommend! For our mains we had the Fried Soft Tofu and Myulchijut Sautéed Vegetables. Both dishes were incredible!! For dessert we headed to Blank Slate Creamery and indulged ourselves in an ice cream flight. My absolutely favorite was the Lavender Lemon Honey ice cream - it just melts in your mouth!

As an ode to my childhood I visited the Dixboro General Store. I used to bike to the store in the summer to buy candy and a bottle of coke in the original glass bottle. It was such a big deal for me to be able to bike outside the neighborhood and go to the store all by myself to get my goodies. The store is exactly how I remember it and has so many Michigan home goodies to purchase. I bought a set of coasters and a ton of candy!

It was a short but sweet trip. I definitely miss Ann Arbor because it's home for me. I'm going to try my best to go back again this summer and try more new foodie spots!

Have a lovely day!

Happy Tuesday! I apologize for the radio silence on the blog, I've been super busy at work and haven't had time to photograph my looks. I have been sharing my daily work looks on IG stores if you are following on Instagram. Thank you for all your sweet comments! I try my best to answer all your DMs!

Today's look is one of my favs. I love throwing a blazer over a blouse and pairing it with y fav denims. It's an easy, put together off duty look that is bulletproof for looking chic! To add a pop of color to the navy and white look I paired a vibrant coral lace scarf from Veilure Couture. I love this shawl because it is lightweight and perfect for these hot summer days!

Shop the look below and thanks for stopping by!
