What I’m Wearing

The truth is… I’m a jeans kinda gal all day everyday. It’s no surprise. And these have currently been on major repeat, and I mean MAJOR. I’m guilty when I say I’ve probably worn these in a row a few times. SORRY NOT SORRY.

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”.

Mixing classics items and trends together will elevate any look. It’s all about balance. Here are just a few tips I’ve learned that have helped me “master” the expensive look…

 

INVEST IN ACCESSORIES. If you’re going to splurge, I suggest doing so with accessories, as you’ll tend to wear them more than the same clothing. It makes more sense to spend your money on something you’ll get more wear out of as oppose to a dress you’ll maybe wear twice.

PAY ATTENTION TO FABRIC MATERIALS AND DETAILS. Before making your purchase look closely at the fabrics and check the washing contents just to make sure it is worth buying. I always look at buttons, zippers and any closure trims and stitching details before making my decision. Believe it or not – a button really shows whether the item looks cheap or not.

OUTFIT STYLING. Instead of throwing all kinds of trends together, focus on mixing classic staples with one trend. Keep the trend items to a minimum. Don’t over accessorize,  because at the end of the day, you don’t want to look like a hot mess or end up on the “worst dressed” list. For example: Pair a classic blazer with a plaid skirt, and add a pop of color, such as red. Red is currently the most dominant color for Fall.

 

I hope these tips help you style your next look. If you have any questions or have any tips of your own, please do share. Leave a comment below. I always love hearing other people’s tips. 🙂

Hats that are having a moment

Boy are these hats sure having a major moment this fall. Am I right or am I right? I feel like everyone is trying to achieve that french-girl look to the max – including myself. No shame in my game. I mean, who doesn’t want to look parisian-chic and french-y-ish. Yup, that’s not a word, but you know what I mean.

Fall hats are the perfect accessory to make an outfit stand out, and look more complete and polished. From berets to newsboy styles to baseball caps to all fashionable toppers – you name it.

 

Here are just a few hats that I am totally into this season that I know will carry on over to the next.

  • The Baker Boy Cap. Such an old-school piece and favorite one of mine right now. When I saw these trending last year, I didn’t run to the nearest mall to purchase a few. I literally went to my parent’s home, and literally raided my mom’s closet, because if anyone is the queen of accessories and fabulous hats, it’s my mom – for sure.
  • The Beret. Ahhhh yes, another favorite style. Also, another one that I took borrowed from my mom.
  • The Cloche Hat. A major throwback trend that is hitting the streets and runway during fashion week.
  • The Parker Brimmed Cap. It’s a mix between a baseball cap and a polo cap. It’s such a sleek and sophisticated hat style that I think will be just as trendy as the beret.

Nothing I love more than Fall fashion. I know I’ve said this before. With Fall finally upon us, it’s time to bring out all the boots and start buying some new ones as well.

Here are 6 Boots I’m loving right now. Let me know which ones are your favorite? Or share some of your favorite boot styles.

  1. White boots are here and they are here to stay.
  2. Slouchy Boots. I honestly didn’t think these would come back in style, but they have and they are currently trending hardcore at the moment.
  3. Kitten Heels. Ahhh, yes the kitten heel. I didn’t see myself ever coming to like this trend but I do. It’s currently one of my favorites in boot form.
  4. Red Boots. Another favorite color at the moment. It’s such a statement color, and elevates any outfit from basic to bad-ass.
  5. A wickedly pointy toe is currently my jam. It’s the sleekest boot and so sophisticated.
  6. Sock Boot. It’s such a staple wardrobe piece to have in your closet.

Red for Fall

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.

Hope you all have a great Monday. See ya soon!

Stuck in a Rut

I have been so busy lately (fortunately), that I have had no inspiration (ZERO, NADA, NONE) to create content or do anything in general. I’ve been stuck in a true rut, people. The lack of inspiration is so real right now. The same questions have been playing in my head on repeat: “what do I do?” “how do I get out of this weird ‘funk’ I’m feeling?” – le sigh.

I decided to change my morning routine and try a few new things in hopes that it would help change my mood, pick my spirit up, and bring some inspiration into my life. Here’s what I’ve been doing:

  1. Meditation: I purchased a mediation singing bowl  with absolutely no clue how to even use it. I am still trying to figure out how to meditate. It’s not as easy as it looks or sounds, that’s for sure, but I’m giving it a try.
  2. Read Self-Help and Motivational Books. Currently re-reading You Are A Badass book, because every time I read a few lines I’ve already highlighted, it definitely changes my mood and gives me some inspiration I kind of lost.
  3. Workout. Insert eye-rolling emoji here. As much as I am not a fan of working out, I do believe it helps release all the yucky vibes and bring back all the good ones. Speaking of, if you are looking to update your workout attire, then look no further and check out Wear It To Heart. They have some of the best high waisted black leggings.
  4. Get out of the house. Even if it’s just to walk around the neighborhood. Weirdly enough, fresh air actually has been helping.
  5. Family & Friends. Spending time with family and close friends has been helpful and nice. Did a lot of that this week.
  6. Setting New Goals. Jotted down a few new goals I’d like to achieve this week. It helps when you actually write them down on a piece of paper as oppose to putting it in my phone. Seeing them on paper is oddly more motivating than having them on my phone.

What are some ways you stay inspired and motivated? I would love to hear your tips and suggestions, and what works for you.

Hope you all have a wonderful day, and will see you all soon on the gram (@melrodstyle).

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.

Happy Monday and happy new week! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. It seemed like it was just Friday like yesterday, doesn’t it? Am I the only one feeling like this?

Also, anyone watch the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight?! Holy cow!!! It was so intense! This fight literally had me at the edge of my seat. SMH.

Anywho, back to our regularly scheduled programming…. FASHUN!

My style tends to come across more on the casual side, but I love mixing casual pieces with dressier ones. Today’s look is definitely not casual, and I’m not mad about it. 😉  While I’m a t-shirt and jeans girl at heart, this dressier little number from Paper Crown is a new favorite. This look can definitely go from a business meeting to a girls luncheon to even an interview. I feel like this outfit can work for multiple occasions, which is why it’s my new jam. I’m all about outfits that can work for more than one type of event. The best part about this Paper Crown jumpsuit is the pockets! I meaaan, SOLD! You had me at pockets. I’m a huge fan of dresses with pockets, shorts with pockets, rompers with pockets – you name it, I’m about it. Who doesn’t love pockets? Am I right?!
