What I Wore: Neon in the City

November 20th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

One of my favorite places in LA is the LACMA. I have to visit every time I’m in town and I’m never disappointed with their temporary exhibits. This time we were fortunate enough to enjoy one on Stanley Kubrick and all his legendary films. Can you believe I’ve only seen one (The Shining)??? I have to say, after completely enjoying the entire experience, I totally find myself wanting to immerse myself in his work. Movie marathon!!!

Something else I really enjoy? Sheer shirts with bling! I have no idea what draws me to own so many sheer blouses, but I hope the trend never goes away. It must be my tropical blood – wanting to be covered, but still airy enough to not suffocate in the Miami heat. Unfortunately for me, that was not the case while I was in LA – it was freezing! Shortly after I took these photos, I had to borrow the hubs’ cardigan to shield me from the elements. Before you judge, remember, I’m tropical, OK?

What I Wore: LA Living

November 15th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I’m back from vacation, and I come bearing gifts! Namely, an outfit post! It feels like centuries since I did one, but I’m glad I was able to squeeze a few minutes out of our hectic visit to LA in order to shoot one. We were there for a friend’s wedding and had entirely too much fun. The weather was spectacular as well, allowing me to pull out all those new winter items I never get to rock back home. Leather jackets, boots, scarves and this immensely comfy sweater tunic. And yes, I’m bringing back jeggings (did they go away?) because they are possibly the best article of clothing when you are jet lagged, tired and hung over – not that I was any of those things when these photos were taken. I promise. ;)
