Top (Anthropologie-Similar) // Pants (Madewell-old, Factory) // Shoes (BCBG) // Bag (Michael Kors-Old) // Sunglasses (Ray-ban) // Bracelets (Old) // Ring (J.Crew-Sold Out)

I don't wear printed jeans too often but figured these would work just fine to check out fresh flowers and fruit! I got the weather I had asked for and needed nothing but a long sleeve T on top.  And after spending saturday at the OC Mix Mart/Farmer's Market and spending $9 (seriously?) on 8 oz of cold pressed juice (what does that mean anyway?) I think it may be time.  So maybe I'll jump on that healthy band wagon.  Time to research the one to buy!

 Sweater (J.Crew-old, Factory) // Shorts (J.Crew) // Shoes (J.Crew-Similar) // Watch (Anthropologie) // Bracelets (Anthropologie, Madewell, and F21) // Sunglasses (Selima-old)

As I was getting dressed the other morning I found myself searching my closet for certain silk blouses, only to come up empty handed.  My first reaction was that one of my sisters had "borrowed" it.  You know how that goes?  "Can I borrow this?", only to find yourself months later still missing said item.  However, this time neither one of them was the culprit.... I forgot about the pile of dry cleaning I have had sitting in the corner of my room for who knows how long.  I hate dry cleaning!  It's pricey, time consuming, and does it ever really get clean?  

Anyway, I decided (until I find something "dry clean only" that I just have to have) no more fussy clothes.  I want things I can clean myself... at least I'll remember where it is!

I'm crossing my fingers it stays warm this weekend since it was so nice this week!  Have a wonderful Easter weekend!!

Sweater (J.Crew-old) // Tank (J.Crew) // Skirt (Madewell) // Bracelets (various J.Crew) // Shoes (J.Crew-old, Want) // Sunglasses (Selima)

Once I had already left this morning I realized just how badly my legs need to see the sun.  They found a way to make an early debut despite their very white appearance in my rush to get out on time.  It was nice and warm today so I guess they made the right decision!  Maybe I'll give them a little more freedom next time and see what they can do... but maybe not.

 Top (J.Crew) // Jeans (J.Crew) // Heels (Madewell, Similar, Want) // Necklace (J.Crew, sold out) // Watch (Target) // Bracelet (J.Crew) // Purse (J.Crew, old)

I wore this out to dinner with the fam on Sunday night.  I got multiple comments about the large, bright necklace and then one from my dad about my shoes.  Something along the lines of, "Mel, it looks like your wearing a live animal on your foot".  Accurate? Yes, I suppose but they definitely did not appreciate any of it! Regardless, we ate lots of delicious Indian food!  All in all it was a total win!

Black & White

One Piece (Old Navy) // Sunglasses (Madewell) // Hat (J.Crew) // Sandals (Gap) // Bag (Madewell)

I found this suit the other day and bought it later since I kept thinking about it.  Now I just need a glam glam vacation in order to wear it!

Hat (Similar) // J.Crew Chambray (Old) // Belt (J.Crew, on sale!) // Pants (H&M) // Shoes (Sam Edelman)

Generally, when I buy something new it sits in my closet until I can find the perfect way to wear it.  Not this time! I bought these pants on Friday night (for $10!) and decided that I would not wait.  They're very comfortable and super easy to wear.  Plus anything neon does it for me! 


Here Comes Spring

Madewell printed blouse / J.Crew j crew / J.Crew lined pants / J.Crew j. crew sandals / Old Navy handbag / J.Crew j crew / Kate Spade analog watch / J.Crew j crew 

A few of my favorite things for spring, even though there are obviously many many more things I love I cannot wait to get my hands on some of these! Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later.
