    A Stylish St. Patrick’s Day

    Let’s be honest, we all like to partake in St. Patrick’s Day. But most of the outfits can be pretty cheesy and not what you would call avant garde or or style goals. No one wants to spend money on some cheesy t-shirt that you will never wear again. Here are some options that are still festive, but wearable any time and super cute. Skirt: This satin pleated skirt it so fun and flirty and pleats are so in right now! Bodysuit: $8 A bodysuit is a staple for me and so versatile. This bodysuit could literally go with any of these skirts or pants. Black Heels: $19 These black…

    The ULTIMATE Self Care

    Self care seems to be a pretty popular topic recently. We live in a world full of stress and pressure coming from all angles and we, for sure, need something to help us through the struggles of life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty big on skincare, massages and pampering of all kinds to de-stress and take care of myself. But, what happens when there’s a real storm of a struggle? No amount of matcha lattes or yoga is going to get you through it and it is not going to fill the void that you have. I just listened to the podcast, “The Porch,” and I highly recommend you listen…

    Throw a BOMB Super Bowl Party On A Budget!

    I look for an excuse to host a party any time a get a chance. But most of my parties can cost a pretty penny. So This time I’m challenging myself to throw a super bowl party on a budget, while still looking pretty impressive. Usually when throwing a party, the first thing you need to do is pick a date. But it’s pretty obvious when to have a super bowl party. So your first step is done for you! Next, send out the invites! I have always been a huge fan of Evite. It is so convenient and it makes it so easy to keep track of your guest…

    New Year, New Mel!

    So I know this post is a little late. But it's taken me some time to get into my groove beginning this new year. I've really been taking time to reflect on EVERYTHING... Myself, my faith, my family, my business, ect. Every year I (I think we all) make New Year's Resolutions. But it's usually just kind of a "wish list" of things that I would like to change, but never really put in the true effort.Well, this year is different! After all of my reflection, thing needed to CHANGE! The past few weeks we have made some big decisions on the resolutions and changes that we would be making…

    Red, Red Wine (Style Edition)

    So if you don’t already know, I don’t drink alcohol. But I am certainly not opposed to a merlot sweater lol. Reds, Burgundy and wine colored sweaters are definitely my holiday jam!   Can we just take a minute to embrace this adorable bright red beret from Revolve! I love berets for the holidays. Another different way to add a pop or red, is to wear a cute lace bralette under an off the shoulder sweater to show a little peek of it. This Free People bralette would be so cute with a black or white off the shoulder sweater over top. This Topshop minidress would be so cute with…

    Boot Camp! (for your feet)

    Boot Season is officially upon us! And I couldn’t be more excited! I think I dug all of my boots out and started wearing them long before Fall officially hit (and had some extra sweaty feet lol). But seriously, when I scroll through my instagram feed, every picture is someone wearing cute boots! Something about fall fashion just makes me feel extra trendy and stylish, especially the boots. Something about them just makes me strut a little sassier. OVER THE KNEE BOOTS (OTK BOOTS) I’m sure everyone has had their eye on the coveted Stuart Weitzman Over the knee boots. They are literally THE PERFECT BOOT! They come in a…

    Fall Fashion Obsessions: Plaid

    I’m sure many of you know that I was able to attend Fashion Week New York last month. It was amazing and I can’t wait for the next one.

    How to Prepare for Fashion Week

    As most of you know, I attended New York Fashion Week this September. It was my first time and I was feeling so much anxiety and was so intimidated by the whole thing. But somehow, it was not a complete disaster. In fact, it was one of the most amazing weeks of my entire life! First, I want to thank Join Reel for sponsoring this post. I had the opportunity to meet with their CEO, Daniella, while I was in New York and we got coffee together. She was so sweet and such an amazing entrepreneur. I had so much fun talking to her and learning about her story. She…
