Spring Leather Shorts
Spring and All its flowers now joyously break their vow of silence. It is time for celebration, not for lying low; you too- weed out those roots of sadness from your heart. – Hafiz
Happy 2nd day of Spring and happy Norouz to all my Persian readers. The sun sure is out in full force this spring and summer! I wanted to show you one of my go-to looks before it gets too warm to wear black. Continue Reading…
Nothing is more satisfying than knowing the Leather season is almost here. Slowly but surely, the weather is cooling down, so it’s time to bring out that investment piece and play dress up with it. If you are living somewhere like Texas or SO-Cal, don’t put away your summer outfits just yet. You can still play around with your favorite summer dresses or skirts with just a little help of the leather jacket. Leather Jacket is a must in everyone’s wardrobe. It is a staple piece in my closet that I wear almost every day in this season. I love how it makes every outfit cooler with the edge to it, so I consider a good leather jacket as an investment piece in my closet. I like all sort of different styles of leather jackets, but to me, nothing would beat a classic or motorcycle black leather jacket. You know, you can never go wrong with them, and they never go out of style. I will share some of my favorite leather jackets at the bottom of this post.

As I’m sitting on the plane and writing this blog post, I keep thinking to myself that no matter how many years passes or how many times I get to go back home to visit my family, saying goodbye is always the hardest part of the trip. Nothing is more satisfying than chatting with your friends and family face to face than over face time. I understand that it has been my choice to live in a different state due to many personal reasons, but the feeling of getting choked and the watery eyes as I’m stepping out of my mom’s car every time I’m departing will never let me go…
These past two years, as soon as spring knocks on the door, I get excited to start wearing my silk print pants. The last thing we like specially in summer are sticky clothes hugging our body; so silk makes life easier and makes us enjoy our summer days even more without shaving. 🙂 They are super lightweight, soft, and since the color is light, they don’t absorb any heat. I like wearing these kind of pants with mute tops, regular silk tops to dress them up or crop tops for more of a casual vibe. Surprisingly they go with all different sorts of shoes. I will post some of my favorites from this season right below the post.
Some tips that will help your print pants shopping easier:
To my petite friends:
Since these types of pants could be overwhelming on You, look for the Ankle length tailored ones. That way it’s not too much pants for You. As far as the top goes, since the main focus is the pants, I like to recommend something mute/solid. This way you will look slimmer and slightly taller. From my personal experience with my clients, smaller the prints are better because the big prints can be overpowering sometimes. 🙂
To my tall friends:
You have the advantage of pulling off almost any prints, big or small and wearing looser pants as well as tailored. I would still recommend solid tops unless you like to mix prints, which it needs its own blog post. Also, waist length jackets are perfect to form distinction between your torso and lower half. They also add more proportion to a long torso and will help break up the line of your outfit for added interest. If the sleeves are short, don’t worry, just roll’em up for added style.
I absolutely love wearing leather and denim jackets with my silk pants in Fall Season.
For This Outfit,
I went with a casual weekend look. This casual look is great for Sunday brunch/lunch, shopping, or even a romantic picnic. I love pairing these pants with light grey and bluish purple tops. This time I chose a bluish purple crop top and wore a denim jacket over it. For finishing up the look, I wore a pair of ballet flat shoes with a touch of gold to spice up the look. Last but not least, instead I wearing a handbag I wore my wallet on a chain, which has been worn for over 4 years everyday.

Urban Outfitters Denim Jacket, Sold Out

Here are some of the favorites from this season:
Living in Houston has made me rely way more on the weather app than before. OMG! Can this weather get more ugly and unpredictable than it is? YES, I know we need the rain and dah dah dah, but these gloomy days are making me crazy. With unpredictable weather arranging a perfect time for photo shoots are harder. I have no other choice by trusting Google and iPhone weather app to manage a perfect time to take pictures. For example, I knew we had to be done with pictures for this look before 1:00 PM, and thankfully it started to rain around 1:30 PM.
Yesterday was our errands day, so instead of dressing up this pretty Romper from Zara, I dressed it down with my favorite Puma sneakers and a motorcycle denim jacket (seen here). As soon as I saw this peplum romper, I wanted to save it for my trip to SF and style it with my Strapped heel sandals (seen here) or Chunky platform sandals (seen here), but I couldn’t resist not wearing it! Since I can remember, lack of patience in wearing new clothes being a big part of my DNA. I never forget my shoe shopping days. As soon as my mom would buy me a pair of shoes, I would exchange my old one with the new before leaving the store. I would wipe the bottoms off before entering the house that way I could wear them all day long until the bedtime. (That was the daily routine for the next seven days)
I absolutely adore everything about this romper. The color combination is great for spring/summer, and I love how tiny the straps are. They automatically make the shoulders be the highlight of the look. The peplum part is very appealing and great for hiding any extra muffins. What makes this romper unique is having both short and skirt moment at the same minute. I exactly don’t know what they are called, but to me they are skirt shorts that take me back to when I was 8 years old. I had this little cute lime green outfit, white tank top with green skirt shorts, which I kept refusing to toss away after wearing and tearing them for many years. Uhhm, Yeah, at some point the shorts were real short and the flap over the shorts wouldn’t reach the button to close. ☺ Now you know what will happen to this Romper.Welcome home uniform/Soldier!:)
Have a Monday full of Sunshine Beautiful Readers!
Good Afternoon beautiful people! We had an amazing weekend with our family and friends. The place we went to was Amazing. It only took me three days to catch up with life and work after the mini trip. 🙂 We had a blast and probably got 10 hours of sleep in total for the 3 days we were there. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram for some pictures I’ve took when we were there. Ok, enough of the weekend! I would like to take some time and talk more about how I see fashion or why I’m doing what I’m doing. I hope you guys won’t get bored! I’ve always gotten asked why am I doing blogging and why do I care about fashion. So, here it is 🙂
My motivation in fashion has always been trying to understand the psychology, philosophy, and theory of it, and I guess that would be the main reason why I’m going to fashion school. You know it’s never about putting clothes on my body because I want to look good. It has been about making a decision to present myself in a certain way to tell a story. So, in that way, fashion is really interesting and compelling for me because it’s so much more than the clothes that we used to wrapped our body. It’s a story we tell and the opinion that we try on. I don’t want anybody to feel that they can’t look nice because of what they decide to wear and what other people would think of them. One of the big reasons why I’m doing blog is that I enjoy talking about what I’m wearing, why I’m wearing it, and show my point of view in fashion. You know sometimes you just purely enjoy what you are doing everyday; so yeah, that’s how I feel right at this moment. I believe happiness is the most important thing in life. I’ve seen elderly people who never felt being happy and they whispered life never had anything to offer them. So on that note, I’m taking advantage of being in the country where I can freely express myself in a way I enjoy, and wait to see what life has stored for me.
I should say, this look is one of my absolute favorite looks of all time. My two favorite pieces in that casual state of minds are definitely High Waist Denim Shorts and black body suits. The combination of the two is always a good idea and looks like you put more effort into the look than you actually did. That’s what I call simple pairing.
For accessories, I kept it simple with my latest favorite Statement Necklace by Mirina Collections, which really gets to live its best when it’s placed over a simple T-shirt, plain crop top, or in this case a Plain Black Bodysuit. I also added this gorgeous Urban Outfitters Belt Bag, which complements the look perfectly. It makes it easy-going but special at the same time due to the gorgeous color and the stone detail on it. I would recommend wearing a pair of sneakers, gladiator sandals or flat ankle boots. I decided to wrap up my look with this amazing Gucci Ankle Boots, Similar, and wore this cute Hat to hide my messy hair.
If I were You, I’d wear this to hangout on a Sunday, to a music festival, or if you are like me, wear it wherever and whenever you desire.
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend, and you are starting the week with lots of positive energy. We ended up not going to Austin this weekend either. We just needed a relaxing Sunday because the thought of being on the road for six hours round trip wasn’t thrilling at all.
As much as I love having statement pieces in my wardrobe, there are times that I just feel to wear something simple with a twist of style. Honestly, unlike LA, Houston doesn’t offer a lot of occasions that I could wear my statement pieces. So, my advice to you is to never forget to stock up on basic items for those days that you just want to be simple. Trust me sometimes Simple is the best recipe for success. Also, try to highlight your best assets on your body. I believe we are all have something in our body that we love the most weather if it is our skin, different body parts, or Face, which
EVERYBODY should like their face; Yes, you are beautiful just the way you are. 🙂
If you are living somewhere like me where the summers are blazing hot, the last thing we want to feel is being constrained by our clothes. Thanks to the blowy off-the-shoulder tops that bring the perfect combination of sweet and sexy without showing too much skin. It might seem like they make you look bigger, but in fact they are completely flattering on almost every body types and hides any imperfection areas. Like denim, can be worn for more than one type of engagement, you can pair them with any type of shorts, denim pants, or pencil skirts. I will try to post the top in diverse outfits on my Instagram, so you could get different ideas. I found this top on Urbanoutfitters.com in an amazing price, but you can definitely find them at almost any store since they have been part of the trend for the past three years. 🙂
For this look, I paired the top with my absolute favorite high waist skinny jeans that I basically live in. I didn’t like to leave the look super soft with light colors, so I decided to complete the look by adding my chunky color-block heels and make it more like a 70s look. The minimalism of the look works wonders for any occasion and it’s simple to throw together. Whether I dress it up or down, this is always a reliable outfit that can constantly be reinvented.
I hope you enjoyed this look!

There is something special about the Montrose area in Houston,TX that somehow reminds me of Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. I know many people including my mom don’t like LA, but to me LA is home. I’m not going to lie; it wasn’t all perfect when I first moved to Houston. To me, it was just a big quiet city with no character. If you ever been or lived in the Hollywood or Silver Lake neighborhood, you would know what I mean by character. So, even finding a small part of that world here, it makes me a happier girl. I really like the Montrose area, and I think nowhere is as cool as Montrose in Houston! ( If you know any other places, please let me know since I’m still a newbie ). For a change of scenery, my beau and I try our best to go there at least once a week. We love the people there and we always find ourselves talking to different artists. I adore all the little cafes and vintage shops, and love meeting creative people who can teach you something great without teaching you, if it makes sense LOL.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny Saturday in Houston, especially after days of rain and thunderstorms. We had to take advantage of the beautiful weather to have an outdoor lunch. We went to a very cute English pub called Black Labrador and ended up taking the blog pictures there. For this beautiful day, I felt the need to wear something comfortable yet chic and sophisticated at the same time. That’s exactly the reason why the main item of the look was this pretty dress from Urban Outfitters. The very first thing that attracted me about this dress was the buttons on the A-line skirt. The triangle cutout is placed perfectly where it accentuates the slimmest part of the body, which makes you look skinnier than you are. I probably bought this dress for less than $25 and wore it a million times because it’s one of those effortless chic dresses that you can dress up or down. I set the dress with a pair of black-strapped heel sandals to make it look dressier, and added a fringe bag to make it appropriate for the daytime. For accessories, I wore my Mother’s vintage scarf and stone choker to give it a more 90s look since we are all into it for the past season or so.
What do guys think of the look? I would love to know what do you guys like to see more in the future posts. 🙂

Happy Wednesday beautiful people! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend!
You know those days where you dig through everything in your closet and think, “I have absolutely nothing to wear”? Well, those days happen to me often than you’d think, especially when I’m pressed for time. Thank goodness to leather pants. They never fail to elevate our style game in any occasion. I can say they are one of my hassle-free and stylish pieces that I wear a lot this time of the year.
I like the way these Zara boots merge with the pants, giving the illusion that they are attached to each other. I enjoy being able to mix high street with high-end pieces because it creates a more grounded look, don’t you think?To complete the outfit, I felt that I needed to look springier, so I went with my favorite dusty pink purse and scarf. I love how the white color stands against the black pants and grey clouds. Remember, you don’t need a special occasion to wear leather pants. I’d wear them everyday if I could, weather at work or out for brunch on the weekends with the important people in my life. Give me an edgy look that’s casual and contemporary, I’m in!

Hey guys! I hope you have had an amazing week so far! I’m going to post the fashion blog of this week a little sooner than Friday because I will be out of country. Two days ago, I lost my beloved grandfather back in Iran, and I’m leaving to join my family to celebrate his prosperous life back home.
I have always liked the wrapped skirts. You can wear them alone, over a baiting suit, or even a dress. I found this skirt at Urban Outfitter on the sale rack and it cost me less than $20. I love how it has different adjusting buttons inside the belt area for different looks. You can wear it tighter over swimsuit to make the skirt flow when you walk, or wear it looser for the street wear. When you wear it looser, it hangs right above your hips and shows less leg than when you wear it tight.
Believe it or not the top that I paired with this skirt is a DRESS! One of my favorite online stores at the moment is Naked Wardrobe, where I ordered this dress. Unfortunately, when I received the dress, it was too short. Since I loved everything about the dress, I decided instead of returning it I will wear it as a top. The mock neck and the color is perfection and the fabric is very soft and comfortable. I wore a big gold statement necklace to make the look a bit dressier.
When the weather is cold, I usually wear the skirt with booties and throw a black fur west on! In this look, I went for my favorite sandal pumps and finished it up with the burgundy and black purse to add a little color to the overall look.
I hope you guys enjoy this look!
P.S. I am posting more pictures in this post than context since I only have 3 hours to pack, shower, and get ready!
Special Thanks to the photogropher, Shahram Faghirloo for this amazing shoot!
Hug your loved ones a little tighter for me today. Whole lotta love!
