My name is Saba :) thank you so much for visiting. This is the home for my creative pursuits and passions: my style + my soul. My style blog is the outlet for my collection of outfits and looks, and my soul blog is the passage to my heart and soul. My hope is that you leave here feeling inspired and supported.
Here I am, writing my first soul blog in months. It never ceases to amaze me how going through emotional pain always leads me back to writing. The universe works in mysterious ways and I like to think that it puts me in certain situations on purpose to get me writing again. It almost makes the suffering I'm going through feel worthwhile.
Ever since COVID, I think that a lot of people have been going through the universal challenging experience of: life isn't going how I expected it to. And then, having to deal with the repercussions of that.. the disappointment, the frustration and the suffering that follows when life doesn't go as planned. For me personally, 2020 wasn't actually all that bad. Why? How can that be possible?
Well, after the initial shock and difficulty of going through the major changes that the pandemic brought about, it was as if something switched off in my brain, an automatic download of knowing- hey, life isn't going to go as expected right now, you need to roll with it and make the best of it.

Happy 4th of July weekend! To kick off the weekend, Matt and I had a date night and I wore one of my new summer dresses from Lulus. Lately, I find myself buying clothes online way more than in-store. I just feel like the clothes in stores haven't been grabbing me lately!
Lulus is on the pricier side, but I've always been extremely happy with the quality of their clothing. In the past, I have bought from online retailers that were EXTREMELY affordable, but the clothes just didn't last. I'd rather spend a little more to get more longevity out of the purchase!
Anyway, I'm a sucker for anything floral and I just love how vibrant the colors are on this dress. I paired my dress with a straw cross-body bag that I got last year from Francesca's, and some summery heels.
Lulus has a promotion going on right now too! You can spin their Summer Spinner for a discount, with the chance to win 50% off site-wide. This is going on until July 5th.

I've always been in love with summer. The sun-kissed skin, no need to wear makeup (it just melts off!), and also being able to air-dry my natural waves. It's heaven.
I recently purchased another swimsuit that I actually found from an Instagram ad! They know how to get ya ;) This swimsuit is super inexpensive: the entire set was $32! It's available in 5 different colors, but I bought mine in Buttermilk because I liked how delicate it was! The link to the suit is here. :)
I love creating "looks", even if I'm just going to the pool. I paired my swimsuit with this sheer floral coverup, my beach hat, and I was good to go! Now that I have these new swimsuits in tow, I'm even more excited to go to the beach this summer.more
