Get 4th of July Ready!

June 24th, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

The sun is blazing, the BBQ is smoking and the water is splashing. This means only one thing, people. Summer is here!!! It’s my all-time favorite season because living in Miami, this is when it really feels like paradise. Plus, I love me some bikini’s, boats & frozen drinks. Can you blame a girl?

Like I mentioned before, the past few weeks have been pretty dismal around here. All clouds, rainstorms and generally ugly weather. Could this be our summer? It was enough to put me in a depression. But no! This past weekend, the skies opened and the sun came out to play! I immediately shed my clothes, slapped on a bikini and jumped in my pool. And it was heaven. Here’s to many more beautiful Miami weekends – especially the 4th! We are hosting a pool party, and it got me thinking…what’s on your patriotic wishlist? Check out mine below;

1. Striped leggings
2. Stars denim shorts
3. Stars & Stripes muscle tee
4. Mini ban.do heart headband
5. J.Crew stars tank
6. Marc Jacobs bikini bottom

What I Wore: Chunky Sweater

The hubs and I just can’t get enough of Bravo and all its ridiculously cheesy programming. Housewives, Matchmakers and just recently, Vanderpump Rules. It’s such a terrible trainwreck, but you cannot look away. Not even for a second. So, of course, today’s title line is an ode to the wonderfully douchey, Jax & the one thing we have in common: our love of a good chunky sweater.

Sweater; Forever 21
Jeggings; Nordstrom Rack {similar}
Boots; Go Jane {similar}
Necklace; Pop Basic

What I Wore: Holiday Card Shoot

November 27th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli


I always look forward to “making” our holiday cards each year. I mean, what’s not to love? I get to have fun taking adorable pictures with my hubs – can’t hate on that! Although I won’t unveil the actual holiday card until Christmas day here on the blog, I figured it was a perfect opportunity for an outfit post – and another excuse to show off my adorable new haircut!
