Since there’s really no sign of Fall anywhere, light layers it is.
I shot this look in the arts district – one of my favorite places to shoot, for obvious reasons. Endless walls, every corner looks different, multiple outfit shots are a breeze around here. It’s just very convenient and easy to shoot around the arts district when you have more than one look to shoot. Quick outfit change in the car? Boom!
Today’s look is brought to you by this heat. Light layers was the closest look I was able to pull off for “fall”.
What are some of your go-to looks right now? Where are some of your favorite locations to shoot?
I’m a firm believer that when it comes to styling an outfit, jewelry plays a big part in completing the entire look, giving it the final touches it needs for a well polished outfit. I always tend to go towards golds and rose golds – not only because it compliments my skin tone better, but because it goes with more of what I have in my closet.
I’m so excited to have partnered with Michael Hill Jeweller to share a few pieces that I can’t seem to stop wearing these days. I mean, can you blame me? These rose gold stud earrings and ring are the perfect shape and size – not too dainty and not too bulky. I love how they are still very delicate pieces, yet still make such a strong statement alone. These two pieces are incredibly versatile, which I absolutely love. I can go from day to night to casual to formal, and these earrings and ring would still create a different look each time for any occasion.
If you are not familiar with Michael Hill, they are a jewelry online store that offer a wide assortment of beautiful jewelry pieces. Anywhere from engagement rings to every jewelry category to watches to even men’s accessories. They are the go-to online store for any upcoming special occasion you may have. Michael Hill is perfect for holiday gifting as well, and with the holidays right around the corner, it’s perfect timing to start that wishlist!
With Fall in full gear…. well it may still feel like Summer, but you know what I mean, the number 1 coat you need for fall is this little number right here. Why you might ask?… Well, it’s timelessly versatile, and it’s the perfect layering piece this season. Consider this your go-to cover-up for chilly nights. It’s the holy grail of coats.
I styled my coat, which by the way I’ve had for a year now, with burgundy and camel tones. See what I mean…? This coat is such a classic item to have, because it will never go out of style. I need this coat in every color, please!
What are some of your favorite coats this season? Let me know. 🙂
The temperature has finally dropped below 70, feels cooler (a lot cooler) outside, and we are in the clear to say that it’s beginning to feel a lot of Fall! Yay! Anyone else just as excited as I am about this?! With a new season comes new trends and new wardrobe… obviously. Hello Fall, Hello red!
I’ve been seeing a lot of reds and maroons, pant suits, and color blocking play EVERYWHERE, epsecially on my Instagram feed, and quite honestly not surprised either. One in particular that has grabbed my attention is the color red. Red is such a powerful color. It makes such a strong statement alone, and easy to create an effortless outfit when you’re in a rush. It’s definitely one of my go-to colors right now for this season. If you know me you know that I steer far from a bold lip or any darker hues when it comes to beauty, however; as you grow, you tend to develop new loves and interests, and red has definitely grown on me. One that I happen to keep wearing over and over again. I’ve found myself wearing red more often than usual. If you asked me last year what my go-to wardrobe and beauty palettes were, I’d probably say neutrals and of course black. I’m very particular with adding pops of color in my wardrobe. Fast forward to today, I’m for sure playing with more colors and adding new tones in my life both wardrobe and makeup – and I ain’t mad about it.
What are some of your favorite Fall trends at the moment? What are some trends you’re currently wearing that you never thought you’d wear before? Would love to hear them.
TGIF everyone! Ahhh, what a week! So happy it’s Friday! Who’s with me?!
We’re officially in the middle of the month, and it still feels very much like summer. I don’t think summer will be leaving us anytime soon either. Let’s rewind for a minute. Can we quickly have a moment and talk about how crazy it is that it’s September already?! I mean, I feel like August was just here a minute ago. Am I right?
Since I am fully convinced that this warm weather isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, I need to continue dressing accordingly and slowly but surely work my way into Fall, which means stock up on accessories and more importantly sunglasses to beat the heat, obviously. Sunglasses are such a huge part of my outfit planning whether it’s a day at the beach or a day out running errands or even on my off-days, a pair of designer women sunglasses are with me through it all. Sunglasses not only complete an outfit, they’re the perfect accessory to wear with almost anything. I decided to style this BEAUTIFUL yellow off-the-shoulder ruffle goodness-of-a-blouse (hello Chiquita banana bonita), with a pair of statement flare jeans that give me all the 70s feels in the world. I especially love the star stitching details near the pocket area. It adds a special touch to the whole vibe. I’m digging it. To complete the look, I added an open toe sandal with a cognac-color cross-body. And can’t forget the sunnies! What do you guys think? Are we digging the 70s vibes?
What are some of your go-to summer items? What’s on heavy rotation in your summer wardrobe? Would love to hear your favorites and must-haves this season.
P.S. If anyone is on the hunt for a new pair of sunglasses, areatrend.com has a variety of options.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday, and I will see you all next week – or on the gram @melrodstyle.
I love Summer so much. There’s no question or denying that. In fact – it is one of my favorite seasons for obvious reasons… the beach, endless poolside hangs, the list can go on and on. However; I am so ready for Fall season. I feel like I am not alone when I say I wish Fall was here. Fall dressing is my favorite, so when I received some pre-fall items from Glamorous, I couldn’t wait. I had to wear them, even if it was just for a little while. This floral dress is the perfect wrap dress to transition from Summer into Fall. This beautiful embroidered denim jacket is another item I am swooning over right now. I love how cool and edgy it is.
Happy Tuesday kittens! Monday was the most Mondayest of all Mondays for me to be honest. Anyone else felt that way? It felt like Monday was never going to be over, LOL. Kidding, kinda.
If you follow me on Instagram (@melrodstyle) and follow my IG stories then you know my love for SABO SKIRT is pretty real. I mean, how can you not be obsessed with them?! Forever swooning Sabo Skirt. They’re just so good. Am I right or am I right?! If you don’t know me by now, then get to know me, because it’s really no surprise that I’m a huge fan of SABO SKIRT. A good 60% of my clothes is Sabo Skirt. From their gorgeous silhouettes to the details of each piece, Sabo Skirt can do no wrong when it comes to creating the perfect sets. They’re always killing it in the playsuit department. I’ve been a fan for quite some time now.
I decided to share a few of many favorite Sabo Skirt outfits of mine that you might’ve seen me recently wear on the gram (@melrodstyle).

It’s true, good hair days make me feel like I can rule the world, which is why I am a firm believer of making sure my hair is kept up and well maintained by using product that will keep my locks looking healthy. While I stick to a very basic hair routine, I do make sure to use the right shampoo and conditioner because happy hair, happy life, am I right?!
Good hair doesn’t come easy. It takes time, effort and knowledge to be honest, which brings me to Nature Queen. After being educated a little more about their hair products and the ingredients that are in each product, I started questioning myself, “what have I been using this whole time?” With only using Nature Queen for a few days, I’ve definitely noticed a difference on not only the way my hair looks, but feels.
Their formula is made with a concentrated extract blend of 9 types of healing herbs that have been traditionally used by Asian women for hundreds of years, which I find so fascinating and interesting. Nature Queen helps with hair growth and scalp without any harmful ingredients, plus has a natural scent, which is simply the smell of the herb extracts and essential oils. I mean, can it get any better?! Their products are free of parabens, GMOs, sodium lauryl sulfate, artificial coloring and fragrance so I knew right away their products were for me. And since there are no harsh chemicals, their shampoo and conditioner are also good for dyed hair, any infections, dandruff, oily or dry scalp, hair loss and hair thinning – even new moms who are going through postpartum hair loss. Major win win if you ask me!
I can’t remember the last time my hair felt this good. I don’t think I can ever go back to my original shampoo and conditioner. Bad hair days?! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
If your hair needs a little pick-me-up or just need a new hair regimen, I would definitely recommend to incorporate Nature Queen in your hair routine. For more, please visit them: https://naturequeenbeauty.com
By now, the malls are probably the craziest and most hectic, especially because of the most anticipated sale of the year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The only time I wish I had a sugar daddy (no offense Horhey). It’s the most dangerous sale, but most exciting because a lot of the brands that are normally super expensive get dropped to a more reasonable price that cannot be passed up, I meannnn. Lucky for us there’s online shipping so we don’t have to wait in ridiculous lines. We can simply shop form the comfort of our home.
So without further ado, here are my top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are currently sitting in my shopping cart, because it is frowned upon to be in a store with no bra, sweatpants and a glass a wine.
Cabo was so much fun. In case you missed it on snapchat – we ate, drank, danced, laid out by the beach and pool… It was definitely very relaxing. The best way I could’ve possibly spent my birthday tbh.
Adios sunny warm weather. Hello 60 degrees.
Can’t complain when you have this amazing and cozy faux fur coat though. So I win. 🙂
