What I Wore: Easter Sunday

April 2nd, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend with those you love the most – I know I did! Although it consisted of a lot of work (man, I’ve been swamped lately), I was able to spend an entire day of quality family time, which was much needed. We even schemed some preliminary plans to head on another cousin adventure to Disney – watch out, Mickey Mouse! Don’t say I didn’t warn you….

Paint Pastel Princess

If anyone gets the reference to the above title, I will love you forever.

I am loving that although it is Winter in most parts of the country, pretty Spring pastels have taken over the world of fashion. Dainty mint, peach, and lavenders are sprinkling all my favorite online boutiques and I am loving it. I imagine wearing these hues while eating brunch with a water view and sipping on a mimosa. Pretty specific, huh? I miss the outside world, OK?

Here are some of my favorites that I’ve stumbled on recently;

1. Christian Siriano heels; 2. Brighton tank; 3. Colorblock shift dress; 4. Unicorn necklace; 5. Mint crossbody; 6. Ombre sweater

What I Wore: Summer Casual

August 14th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

We had big plans for Saturday. After too many back-to-back vacations and just general bad eating, the hubs and I are on a strict calorie-counting regime, and we really want to incorporate more exercise and physical activities into our daily routine (we were getting way too comfortable being couch potatoes). This is why we were really excited to pull our bikes out of the garage and start riding again. Unfortunately, Miami’s fickle weather did not work in our favor. Mid-way through our ride, it began to torrentially downpour. We had to pedal to the metal all the way back home, but at least we got a lot of shrieks and laughter in. That’s gotta count for something right?
