Hello sparkleeees! When I said you can style this denim button-up with anything – clearly I meant it. When I threw this outfit together in Kurdistan, I was inspired by the Kurdish sequin pants that the culture wears underneath our traditional Kurdish dresses (it’s a custom that’s been around for decades). They are handmade to perfection. I’ve gone through so many sparkly colored pants since I was a kid that I wish I saved them for my future daughter (after I try really hard to squeeze into them myself). It’s so crazy to see it today evolve into a modern day trend that daring fashionistas are styling into their wardrobes. Mainstream/designer brands like Moschino have also made it look chic from the runway to the realway. I’m glad this trend has come out from hiding and is inspiring women of all shapes and sizes to embrace sexy pants in a classy way. For me personally, it’s inspiring to wear them out with a purpose that’s no longer just for hiding underneath my pretty Kurdish dress.

TGIF! Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to look fabulous, girl. ;)

Happy Thursday! After 14+ hours traveling, I am back in the United States! It’s good to be back! I’m here in Texas for a few days before stepping on a plane again to LA – my final destination! I don’t get how some of my fellow bloggers can handle the jet-life! I love traveling to new places, but I also enjoy being in my home environment. Thankfully I have a month to re-coop before traveling again.

Today I’m sharing this oh so colorful look I wore in Kurdistan last week. As many of you saw on my Instagram teaser pic, I rocked my natural curls because I didn’t have time to style my hair. The family was rushing me because we were invited out to dinner. ha #SazanProbs

Sorry there aren’t as many pics in this post. I had my little brother snap some quick shots before I had to jump in the car and head to our dinner. I couldn’t find this jumpsuit for you guys on Forever 21’s site but I linked several similar options below.  And if you’re not a floral kind of gal, I found this black jumpsuit which is a must-have.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Would love to hear your thoughts on the jumpsuit trend!

Happy Monday from Kurdistan! I’m so sad to say that today is my last day here before heading back to the states tomorrow. I’ll be sharing the remainder of my outfits I wore here throughout the week as well as a full trip recap/travel diary next week! Can’t wait to reflect back and share my experience!!

This outfit you see I wore casually over the weekend. For some reason, when I spot colors that I like, I find a way to combine them together to make an outfit pop that much more. These mirrored sunnies compliment my colored skinnies and vice versa (or at least I’d like to think so!) #colorobsazzed

It’s a bittersweet feeling leaving this place (it has been so relaxing!) and with only a month of summer left, I wish time would slow down a little! ha Nonetheless, I’m ready to get back to ‘reality’ because I have some exciting stuff coming up! To update you (I feel like I need to since I haven’t been posting regularly!) – I just found out today that I will be going to the EMMY AWARDS (ahhhh!!!) which I’m SO thrilled about! Need to find a dress ASAP. Also, Beauty Con and a quick trip to Vegas are on my August agenda so get ready to come along for the ride. I’m also in the midst of prepping for New York Fashion Week in September which can be stress-city. I have some exciting collaborations cooking up that I think you will enjoy. I love being able to take you along + share these experiences with you. It’s really cool seeing the different responses I get when I travel to different places! Stay tuned for updates my loves.

Have a great rest of your day + stylish week!

P.S Happy Eid today to those of you who celebrate! <3

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing an exotic eyes tutorial that I created for you on my Youtube channel! Since being here in Kurdistan, I have been so inspired by all of the beautiful things around me – from the nature to the yummy food and pretty women of all shapes and sizes. One thing I’ve noticed is the women out here loveeee their bold eye makeup! I’m not one to rock this look everyday but it’s definitely one that I don’t mind playing with. Some of you may hate me when I say the ‘K’ word, but I feel like the Kardashians really took this Middle Eastern inspired trend and made it globally glamorous. I decided to jump on the trend-wagon and create my version of this hot smokey eye that hopefully you’ll give a try. If any of you ladies are really in the mood to spice things up, you can also try this look with colorful eye-liner shades like green or blue. Totally exotic meets summer. I hope you enjoy the video! Would love if you could subscribe to my Youtube for more upcoming videos! Happy watching!

Finally. A printed jumpsuit that fits my tiny 5’2” frame. I recently spotted this at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale and the color and print instantly caught my eye. I don’t have many jumpsuits because I can never find a style that fits right. Does anyone else have that problem? However, I love love love them so much that I’m always hoping and praying it fits when I try one on in the fitting room. I totally hit the jackpot with this one and the fact that it was on sale for a limited time, I mean come on! I couldn’t pass up. You can honestly dress this cool summer jumpsuit casually or fancy like I did. I decided to add a sparkly belt to give it a glamorous touch and pretty orange earrings.
