What I Wore: Easter Sunday

April 23rd, 2014 | Posted in Beauty, Fashion by Meli


My godson (& nephew) was out of town for Easter, so we didn’t have much to do. We are not overly religious people (both raised cafeteria Catholic), so the holiday surrounds this little guy and watching him pop open eggs that usually have some sort of small die cast car in them. This year is a little different – I packed his eggs full of Pokemon cards instead to give him at a later date. ;)

As a substitution, we had my mom over for wine and a hangout sesh. We were initially going to watch Catching Fire (my mom is a recent Hunger Games addict), but just never got around to it. We had way too much catching up to do! It was nice and relaxing, as well as reassuring. No matter how old you are, it always feels nice to have your mom hold your hand and tell you things will be and are better. Am I right?

What I Wore: Breezy & Balmy

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

Sorry to the rest of you, but in Miami, it is already summer time. We spent a great day with friends visiting places we had never been: Funky Buddha Brewery and Rock n Roll Ribs (omgz I was able to eat something). Despite a crazy storm very early morning, we had a GORGEOUS day to contend with, so I pulled together my most perfect summer outfit. Both these pieces are so light and breezy, it barely feels like you have anything on at all. Paired with my absolute favorite unicorn clutch (totally adorable, but not exactly functional – itty bitty space that barely holds a phone), I think I found my go-to outfit for the months to come.

What I Wore: Broken Shaker

April 16th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

The hubs and I had been dying to try out what is being hailed as the best bar in Miami for quite a long time (hello, James Beard award nomination). It’s so well known that when we traveled to Orlando (twice), both times bartenders asked us if we had been. It was kind of embarrassing to say we hadn’t. So we took the plunge this past weekend, and despite the strange and fickle weather, we had a great time at the Broken Shaker.

What I wore was kind of perfect for the laid back, relaxed vibe of the place. The Broken Shaker is located on the patio of Freehand Miami Hostel, and it is kind of absolutely adorable. It didn’t have a very Miami vibe, which is what I loved about it the most. It reminded me of somewhere between L.A. and Spain (yeah, I know…weird), and definitely made me want to plan a staycation (Private King Suite please) just so I can relax by the pool and take in the bar every.single.day. Needless to say, we will be back. And frequently.

What I Wore: Reset

March 10th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Personal by Meli

Sometimes things happen, and they just don’t make any sense. You spend many days and nights reeling, trying to understand why or trying to label it with some sort of significance because there has to be a bigger picture to all this, right? That, in a nutshell, is what has been swimming around in my head for the past week. You would think an outfit post would be the last thing on my mind, but (with the help and gentle nudging of the hubs) I want to try not to push away things that make me happy or are part of my normal routine. My smile may be a little forced, and my glitter a little dull, but I strongly believe I will make it through this very tough time.

What I Wore: Holiday Glitz

December 23rd, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

It’s the perfect time of year to throw on some shiny goodness without apologies. This, of course, means I take it a few steps further by not only wearing glitz, but pairing it with loud prints. In other words, sorry, I’m not sorry.
