DENIM & POMEGRANATES

Paresa Kouhestani

Hello darlings! Hope you all are having a lovely week! Last weekend I asked a friend if she wanted to explore the RiNo (River North) neighborhood of Denver with me. The lovely friend that she is, said yes, and I started researching! I was able to find some pretty amazing images of RiNo street art from Instagram and Google Images. I also found a new(ish) market that is (slightly) similar to Chelsea Market or Urbanspace Vanderbilt in NYC and immediately thought, YES! I've been hoping Colorado had a market like this somewhere!

Off we went on our adventure to try some local Colorado food at Denver Central Market and find some gorg street art! DCM has different food and drink vendors including seafood, Italian, burgers, bakeries and cafes and it's so chill--and so affordable! I loved the neighborhood because it still felt like you were in the city, minus the massive amounts of people! Right behind DCM, there's a three-block-long alleyway covered in colorful street art- perfect photo shoot location! Including some amazing Stranger Things inspired artwork that I'm completely obsessed with!

After exploring that area we ended walking to the western end of the RiNo neighborhood and stumbled upon the grand opening of a group of restaurants and shops with free champagne, snacks and music. The weather was so beaut and it was so nice to enjoy and celebrate outside! After exploring the RiNo area, we popped over to the opening of local boutique Patterns & Pops which was also so much fun! Trendy clothes, photo-booths, wine, desserts, what more could you want?

Because we were going to be roaming around for a while, I wanted to style an outfit that was comfy and lightweight because the weather was so gorgeous! I also wanted to wear something that didn't leave my skin super exposed to the sun (#palepeopleprobs). I don't know about the rest of you, but Persians LOVE their pomegranates, so once I found this light denim button down with pomegranate detailing on the back, I knew I needed it! I was worried about the wash of the denim, because, as you all know, I love my black! It ended up working out really well once I figured out what jeans and shorts I could pair it with! I ordered a small at first, but the shoulder fit was a bit tight for me so I ended up ordering a medium instead and it was perfect! Not only is the length amazing, but the fabric is light enough to wear it through every season!

I paired the Zara top with my trusty Topshop black skinnies, blush pink velvet Steven Madden flats, and Dior sunnies. Enjoy!

NEON IN THE DESERT

Paresa Kouhestani

Hello darlings! I want to start by saying Happy Persian New Year!! The first day of Spring always marks the new year in most Middle Eastern cultures and my family and I have been celebrating all month! For more about our traditions check out my Norouz post from last year! I wanted to celebrate the New Year by sharing this outfit we shot at the Seven Magic Mountains during my weekend getaway in Las Vegas! It was so much fun! We had a jam packed 3 days planned which meant lots of In-N-Out, seeing the Backstreet Boys (my 12 year old self was freaking out!), seeing the Chainsmokers (so amazing!), AND David Guetta! It was very exhausting, but totally worth it! See the entire gallery here!

You all know I've been totally obsessing over bell sleeves and this post is no exception! After seeing Emily Blunt's interview on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back when she was promoting The Girl on the Train, I fell in love with her over-sized bell sleeve jumpsuit and wanted to find an affordable alternative! I found this neoprene black top that is kind of amazing! It's a little heavier than i thought but still so comfy! I didn't even get super hot when we were shooting the look in the middle of the desert.

There is just something about bell sleeves that adds the perfect touch of femininity to a look and I love it! The top (size small) is long enough to rock with leggings, however I paired it with black skinnies and my fave Zara booties! Enjoy!

SILVER + BLACK

Paresa Kouhestani

Hello darlings! Hope you are all doing so well! It's almost the end of February and we are having gorgeous weather in Colorado (for the most part)! I'm sure the snow will pile down on us in a few weeks time, but I'm enjoying not having to lug around a heavy jacket with me all the time! I'll be visiting Las Vegas in a couple weeks, so I know we will have warm weather there!

I styled this look while driving around Colorado Springs one sunny day and visiting Garden of the Gods and The Broadmoor-both are my fave places in the 719! The weather was so beautiful and I wanted to wear something light weight, but warm enough that I didn't need a jacket!

I found this adorable light grey sweater with zipper detailing on both sides and paired it with my trusty Topshop black skinnies and white Converse. I brought out my black fedora to keep the sun off my face (#palepeopleproblems) and wore my silver Dior sunnies, that I totally forgot about until this week! I usually don't wear lighter shades of colors, but I've been trying to embrace the light greys, pinks and purples to add some variation to my wardrobe! Enjoy the look!
