Adjustable OTK Boots For Petite Women

Hello Beautiful People! Many of you have been asking questions about my black OTK boots from my recent Instagram posts. I got these boots a year ago from Nordstrom on sale. I’ve got small calves and always struggled with finding boots that wouldn’t look so big on my legs. So, these Suede OTK boots were an amazing find! They’re adjustable OTK boots from Sam Edelman and probably the best investment I ever made in shoes! If you’re looking for a...

Chunky Sweater + Velvet Skirt

Hi Everyone! Hope you’re all well, it’s seriously been awhile since I posted on the blog. Can we quickly talk about how this year is almost OVER?! It’s insane. Like I am still getting over last year’s Holiday season. With the year quickly coming to an end and the holiday season being around the corner, I’ve began to add some new pieces to my closet, namely some chunky sweaters and velvet! Velvet is SO in right now, and for someone...

Beard & Brunch: Cote Korean Steakhouse

Sometimes, you just need to take your spouse out for a nice night out on the town. You get extra points for going to eat their favorite cuisine, and a little extra for yourself if it’s infused with something you love. That’s what happened for us when I found Cote for a nice little Beard and Brunch (dinner… It was dinner). COTE KOREAN STEAKHOUSE Maryam’s favorite cuisine is, by and large, Korean BBQ. When she’s sad or stressed, once I...

Thread and Swole - Workout

Thread and Swole – Heavy Chest and Back

Thread and Swole… trying it out. It’s sounds just meat-head enough, or is it a little too much? Let me know. A workout is never is as good as when it’s with someone who’s going to push you to be your absolute best. And if they’re someone who knows how to laugh while their muscles are on the verge of giving out, it’s even better. I was able to convince my friend Naeem to come put in some work with...

Who Wore It Better: Blue Floral Shirt

I think one of Maryam’s favorite things about getting married has been the fact that her closet has doubled. Not in size, you know, because we live in NY, but because she now has my clothes to wear too. On any given day, she’ll send me a picture of her heading to meetings or a fashion show and I’m like “… that shirt looks familiar.” Because it’s my shirt, sweater, or hoodie. The most recent shirt was a shirt I...

Just a Hoodie and Jeans

Growing up, Muhammad Ali was my biggest role model. Every year, we had to write a paper on one historical figure, and every year I would write it on Muhammad Ali. It’s crazy, every time I researched him I would learn something new and be even more enamored by him. So, needless to say, when I saw that Roots of Fight had a Cassius Clay hoodie (a really really nice Cassius Clay hoodie), I scooped it up immediately. With the...

Warm Tones & Warm Weather

Hello Hello! Lately, I’ve been feeling the HEAT and I mean that figuratively and literally. Wearing warm tones in the summer is such a taboo! But, I’ve been digging the rusty, bronze tones in this warm weather. Honestly, my love for warm tones started when I receive my NAKED HEAT palette from Urban Decay. I am absolutely obsessed with the shades “sauced”, “low blow” and “cayenne”. So, today I am going to share an outfit inspired by my new palette!...
