Woah My, Oh My! What a month! July began with Z and I signing on our house, just days before celebrating the Nation’s Independence Day, which I love more and more every year I get to spend it in this great city that is the Capitol! After celebrations died down came the daunting and [seemingly] neverending renovations, packing, and moving that filled our month to brim and left both of us (mostly me) in tears more than once, all while managing our work schedules and house drama. Thankfully, July has ended on such a great note. I’m currently wrapping up a weeklong vacation with Z and his extended family, boasting a tan (at last), and couldn’t be happier. Other memorable moments: flying to Boston one day, then driving a truck 11 hours to DC in flash floods the next day, taking my first Segway tour of DC, spending tons on outlet shopping and thrifting alike, trying new foods (as per usual) and spending quality time with the two men in my life, Z and Maven.
In case you missed the ‘grams, here’s a few highlights from July. To keep up with August and the rest of my fun, make sure you’re following me on InstaGram @QueSeraSahra !
While August will bring me back to the tasks of unpacking and minor house fixes, I have three weeks of the real world then it’s back to the sandy coast I go. CAN’T WAIT. How was your July? Do you dears have anything exciting planned to round out the end of your season?
Appropo MMI; Hello from the beach!
Hope you enjoy your week!
but you’ve been right by my side.
I bet you think you’re doing a favor.
I bet you think you’re my lifesaver.
Getting Z to pose for pictures isn’t always the easiest task, and I might be biased, but damn the boy looks good. After a day of illness for us both (when there’s a drink called a “peruvian bear fucker” you should probably say no when it’s offered over and over again for free), Z finally decided to get dressed dapperly to go out to meet his friend. He pulled out all the stops; summery gingham shirt, silk tie, suspenders, and a full suit…all flawlessly matching. It’s great to date another sartorial soul, and wonderful when you get to witness him procure some perfect pairings.

Alrighty, guys. Take a couple minutes to gawk at the puppy dog eyes. Now, let’s read the quote. “Someone is looking up to you. Don’t let that person down.” I chose this image this week because you truly never know who is looking up to you, judging what you do and learning from you. Monkey see as monkey does, and you never know who you’re affecting with your actions. A pet, a child, a stranger on the street, a peer in class or work… Be sure that you’re always putting on your best, and are aware and conscientious of your actions.
Fun Fact: I once (maybe kind of still do) wanted a tattoo across my chest that said “here’s to feeling infinite”, an ode to those moments where life just HITS YOU and is like “you are alive, this is real, this is amazing”. Iconic moments. Many of mine have happened while at NYFW, whether it was being a guest at Alice + Olivia’s presentation or walking the runway myself for Avril Limieux. Other times have been seeing my favorite bands in concert, getting goosebumps in 90 degree weather over live versions of songs I’d played on repeat as a 13 year old.
Nowadays, I’m in a constant state of awe; so grateful for all the good that’s happening right now, even with all the stress it has brought with it. I’m grateful for the best daily company; Z and Maven. And I’m grateful for my conscientious noticing of all the good things I have right now.
I hope you too find things you are grateful for, people that make your life complete, moments that make you feel alive, and passion that lights your fire.
Happy Monday, Folks.
