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!

What I Wore: Cruel Summer

July 15th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

This summer has been a particularly cruel one in South Florida. We have been getting nasty storms nearly every day, which have been impeding on our sunshine state activities. In between thunderstorms, the humidity has been off the charts and our mosquitoes clearly have a ruthless agenda against all mankind. In a nutshell: stay indoors.

Thankfully this past weekend gave us some sort of respite, and I was actually able to enjoy my pool for the first time this summer (sacrilegious). I was also able to take these photos without fearing an impeding storm, but it was still quite steamy. To fight the unbearable heat, sometimes you just gotta go basic. I can already tell this tee is going to be a summer staple. It’s light, so incredibly soft and in an amazing Miami color. It also gives you the ability to rock the half-tuck, which is my new favorite. It really highlights your silhouette while still remaining casual. Win/win? Yes.

What I Wore: Pool Side

June 23rd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I hope all of you enjoyed the first official weekend of Summer! I got to spend some quality time with friends I haven’t seen in a bit, and then had brunch with the hubs at a local hot spot. I ended it with a 2-hour float in my pool, where I promptly fell asleep (don’t worry, sunblock was applied). Overall, a pretty successful weekend.

Since it was our first taste of Summer, I had to don the unofficial uniform: the maxi dress! Who doesn’t love a good maxi? They make you look classy and stylish, yet feel like an adult pajama. This one especially is so soft, and I love that its tie dye color scheme compliments my swimming pool. It was meant to be.

Geek Chic: The Dark Side

June 17th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Come to the dark side, we have cookies.

On the heels of my post about mixed feelings towards leggings, I go ahead and make myself look like a somewhat hypocrite. Yep, here I am in leggings. But honestly, paired with this perfectly soft tunic tee and sneakers, I couldn’t have been more comfortable. In fact, I think I may have found my SDCC staple outfit, especially after a long night of drinking and dancing the night away. Leggings, I was wrong about you.

What I Wore: Tropical Paradise

May 27th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

We’re pretty lucky in Miami. If we drive an hour south, we arrive in The Florida Keys, which is basically paradise. Nothing but blue skies and clear water where time just seems to stop. It’s my absolutely favorite place to be because I can disconnect from all my worries and stressors. The hubs and I haven’t been able to spend any time alone together lately, so it was nice to have a date day in such a beautiful setting.

The occasion obviously called for neons and floral prints. This summer I’m kind of obsessed with high-waisted shorts in loud patterns, so you may see these in many future posts. Sorry, I’m not sorry.
