Wear it Wednesday | Afternoon Wedding Style

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I’m back with a Wear it Wednesday post–after many weeks of hiatus. However, I wanted to share this sweet, yet no fuss wedding guest outfit. A few weeks ago the husband and I were invited to a Valimah, a wedding reception hosted by the groom, it was at a local Pakistani restaurant.

I apologize for the bad snaps, we forgot to take our dslr and thus had to take snaps from the iphone, and later the snaps we did take from the dslr were just in bad lighting. But how handsome does my date look?

It was a Pakistani hybrid wedding and I could have worn a traditional outfit, but I opted to wear a beautiful maxi skirt that I got from Ann Taylor several months ago and was dying to wear to a perfect occasion. This skirt was a major score since it was a off-season sale item, and thus I had to wait till Winter passed to enjoy it. It is a bit long on me, however with the heels and my fancy BCBG floral belt it works. What do you think? The rest of my ensemble is basics that I paired here, and pieces I find incorporating in other outfits pretty easy.

Wear it Wednesday | Fall Ready Boho Chic

20130904-135741.jpg

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I can’t believe that it’s already the “unofficial” start of Fall! The temperature is slowly dipping but I’m crossing my finger’s for Summer to last a little bit longer. I kind of feel, well not kind of, I do feel that I missed out on Chicago Summer this year due to being out of town for all of June, some of July and then while fasting in Ramadan I didn’t want to step out in the scorching hotness. But to be honest, I miss Ramadan more than missing out on Summer.

If you have been following me on this blog or on social media, you probably already know that all HOOTD featured are outfits I actually wear in my daily life, and most outfit snaps are taken while on date night/day with the husband, or when I attend an event. I love to dress up sparkles and all for the husband, but I’m sure a lot of you can relate with me on the following meme that is popular on pinterest. Therefore, my outfits are planned in advance for special days. 19140367136953881_lft1d5wd_c  Now to the main outfit post! I ordered this beautiful boho chic skirt from Forever 21 a few weeks ago, and knew I was going to wear it out for a date night. This maxi skirt has vibrant Fall colors, and a great print to liven up a basic outfit. This skirt is something definitely different than my usual solid color skirts, and I think I will be looking for more beautiful printed skirts for my collection.

I will recommend all modest fashionista’s to not be afraid of print especially in maxi skirts because you can easily wear the skirt with many basics as I’ve done in this outfit.IMG_0828 
For a recent date night we had to change our plan’s due to rain and ended up at a local Lou Malnati’s to indulge on a deep dish pizza, and later watched The Wolverine.IMG_0841 
We are a couple of week’s behind on watching The Wolverine so no formal review, but the husband and I both enjoyed it, and give an overall rating of 7.5/10. Contrary to the feedback we had heard from family and friend’s about the movie. We also loved the end credit scene, which everyone failed to mention to us however we were taking our sweet time leaving the theatre and caught it.IMG_0843 
The beautiful art you see in these pictures are up on the outside walls of the movie theatre we are regular’s at, and this last one is our favorite from the bunch!  Beautiful art all over downtown is one of the things I love most about Chi-town.

Date Night at Geja’s Cafe

Hello everyone!

20130826-152644.jpg
It’s Monday again and I have lots to share in this week’s upcoming posts.
First off, the husband and I had a romantic dinner date on Friday. We headed out to Geja’s cafe in Lincoln Park. The restaurant is essentially a fondue spot similar to The Melting Pot. Geja’s cafe is more of the locally known and loved spot for fondue. We checked out the place especially since we had a great Groupon deal for the restaurant. The restaurant is nice and we would recommend it, however having been to The Melting Pot also we don’t think it’s better. What we don’t enjoy about these fondue places is when you order an entree of meat/fish/veggies/tofu you are basically spending time cooking your own food. We definitely prefer having only cheese and chocolate fondues at these types of restaurant’s.

Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take pictures in Geja’s cafe and even if we were allowed I doubt they would be stellar since it’s one of those intimate setting restaurants with very dim lighting.

Nonetheless, it was a nice evening where we ordered the specialty dinners which came with a house salad, cheese fondue, main course veggie & tofu, dessert was chocolate fondue, and we ordered a latte to finish our meal.
After dinner we strolled a bit around the Lincoln Park zoo area but had to cut the date short once the husband was called into work. Thus, the lack of more detailed snaps of the day. These pics were mostly taken by the park.

HOOTD | Red, White & Blue

Happy Monday everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and now I’m sure everyone is looking forward to 4th of July to spend time with family and friends.

Today’s outfit of the day post is my version of a casual 4th of July look that will be great for parties, picnics or just going out to see fireworks.

I wore this outfit last week when we went on a glass bottom boat in Key Largo. It was a very hot and sunny day and because of the blazing sun we were all drained quickly. We mostly stayed inside the boat where there was air conditioning but went outside when we all started to get nauseous once the boat was closer to the coral reefs, due to feeling nauseous most of us didn’t even get to experience seeing the fish and coral reef- what a bummer! The outside open area on the boat was quite refreshing and windy which helped to get over the nausea. Nonetheless, it was a great outing with the family.

The cutie in one of the pics is my niece who was also the flower girl at my wedding.

I’m loving May! Yesterday was the perfect Spring day with the sun shining, 80 degrees, flowers, shopping & a great lunch date with the husband to top it off!
