Repeat Pleasures

I wanted all of this to never subside
I never wanna miss a moment of life

Welcome, to the second look of me styling the trending pleated midi skirt (c/o The Girl That Loves)! While my first look with the skirt was feminine and subdued, using muted neutrals and flirty florals, this look veers in the opposite direction. With a leather jacket and a bold 80’s inspired crop, I’ve created a biker meets femme aesthetic. The subtle crop top makes for perfect hinting at any edgy body jewelry (belly ring), similar to the styles on FreshTrends.com; chic, fashionable, and practical.

What do you think of this look? How would YOU style a pleated midi to highlight your personal style!?

Monday Morning Inspiration

Lao Tzu is one of my favorite quotables, this line being no exception. I chose it as this week’s MMI because of the image that goes along with the quote here; Loving yourself is more important than loving others and being loved. When all is said and done at the end of the day, you need to be able to love yourself in order to have a happy life.

Happy Monday and I hope you love yourself every day this week!

July in an Instant

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?

Paris Nights and New York Mornings

Flirty and Feminine in pleated champagne skirt on Que Sera Sahra


It’s been oddly chilly lately; temps are almost sweater necessitating, even though it’s mid-july. I’m dreaming of Paris Nights and New York Mornings….and Fashion Weeks’ just around the corner. I’m craving summer feeling but also warmth, so a cropped knit with a perfect pleated skirt is the outfit option of choice. There’s something “Carrie Bradshaw” esque about this look; it’s cosmopolitan, and not like the drink, and the “cigarette burned” sweater adds the right amount of downtown edge to the flirty and feminine pleats. Topped off with kitschy sunglasses and I’m ready to brave the city for a day of meetings and errands. This is the first set in a “wear two ways” series, so be sure to check back to see what item I spin in an opposite style!

I Know You Feel Like You’ve Fallen Behind

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.

Dapper guy style on Que Sera Sahra

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.
