Geek Out: Time Lord Love

July 29th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Yes, I am back from San Diego Comic Con. Yes, it was magical. Yes, I am exhausted. Yes, it was worth every sleepless night. I have so much to share with you all, but I’ll start with one of my favorite outfits from the Con. Sure, it was simple, but I love that I was able to customize the shirt myself. That means I did not run into anyone else with the same tee (happens on the regular), and got a ton of compliments (even on the plane ride there)!

I always say that The Doctor is every woman’s fantasy: an attractive man that promises to take you away from your reality and on amazing adventures that make you reach your max potential. I mean, who wouldn‘t want that? And thus, I like Time Lords (sorry husband).

What I Wore: Miami Swim Week

July 22nd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Miami Swim Week continued for me on Saturday (check out my post here). I knew I would be party hopping and on my feet quite a bit, so I wanted to be comfortable, while at the same time looking the part. Although I love a good heel, I traded them in for a pair of sensible flats along with my fun and bright outfit. I wanted to throw in some personality, so I went kitschy with my British culture skirt and a whole lotta’ red!

Miami Swim Week: Escape Miami 2 & WildFox

July 21st, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Escape Miami was this past Saturday and if you didn’t join in on the {free} fun, you really missed out! This year’s event was packed with vendors, activities, shopping, and of course, beautiful people. It was held at The National Hotel and hosted by Annie of The Fashion Poet. I had a great time with the hubs in tow, despite the unbearable heat (what’s up, Miami??).

My favorite vendors were those that had some sort of interactive component (I like to play). Some of those were Eberjey (left) and Headbuds (right). Eberjey makes gorgeous intimates and had a little station where you could make your own scented satchel for your lingerie drawer. Their sea scent was absolutely divine! Headbuds had the cutest table where you could make your own flower crowns! Um, twist my arm, why dontcha. The girls were so sweet and made the process so easy! I love my flower crown so much, I’m taking it with me to San Diego Comic Con!

What I Wore: I’m On A Boat!

July 19th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Remember these pretty great shorts? Well, here’s my second way to style them! Being that my first Miami Swim Week event was atop a yacht, I figured I should dress the part! I picked a vibrant top that would complement the nautical basic. Pair it with some bright and fun accessories, like my shades and earrings, and you have the perfect summer brunch outfit. Something that really makes this outfit pop? The open back cutouts (& my awesome, yet peeling, tattoo)!

Special thanks to Netty of The Fashionable ESQ for taking these shots for me!
