Feeling a little girly lately in skater skirts, flowy tops and pretty jewelry pieces. Of course, I had to edge it up a bit with a leather jacket and black platform sandals. It just wouldn't be me without it! That's what's great about a skater skirt. It's so versatile, that the sky's the limit! Not only that, it makes my thick legs look slimmer. Win-win! By the way, how adorable it this top with the bow in the back? Check out more cute affordable items at ShopSosie.

OOTD: Fields of Color with SWELL.com


Photography by Crystal Kong

My flower explosion continues on the blog today! I spent the day in a field of flowers with my blogger friend, Crystal. It was an hour and half drive from LA and definitely worth every minute. I decided beforehand that I wanted to be a chameleon in training, so I wore my new floral dress from SWELL to blend into my surroundings. With all these flowers I'm posting about, it's bound to work right?! It's not over yet either so I still have time...stay tuned!

OOTD: Flower Explosion in Dailylook, Zara and JustFab


Photography by Natalee Shale

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll notice a trend forming in most of my pictures. I'm calling it a flower explosion since I can't seem to get enough of it. It's not only the clothes I'm wearing but behind me, in front of me and down below. I have an excuse though and it's definitely the case of spring fever! Stay tuned for my next post, as I'm literally in a field of color. A field of flowers, that is! Follow me on Instagram @melanee if you're not already. Hope you all had an amazing weekend!

I Got You BABE


Photography by Natalee Shale

Sometimes a girl just needs to rock a cool graphic tee.  Specifically ones that make you feel like a total babe. Paired with a great pair of pants and even better accessories and you have yourself one hell of an easy outfit. Speaking of accessories, how amazing is my blue metallic clutch from RoviMoss?  I think I'm in love.

Reflections

It's been quite sometime but I'm finally taking it back to my maxi lover days from when I first starting blogging. Not only was it my go-to look, a maxi-lover was my sub-titled header on the top of this very page. 

I'm in an extremely reflective mood since my blog two year anniversary is coming up next month. I've come to realize after a lesson or two or three, that you really have to love it and expect absolutely nothing in return. You're in it because inspiring people brings you joy! Otherwise, what's the point? Why do it? Most importantly, I've learned that no one will help you along this journey but you!

As for style, it's constantly evolving. As a fashion blogger, this is quite apparent. New trends form, your taste changes from inspiration gathered all over the web and the thought of staying stagnant is scary. I think this definitely happened to me along my road to blogger discovery. Keeping up to date, creating new and innovative content on a weekly basis is a struggle. That's why once in awhile, it's nice to reflect on the past. I think that was the case with this look. Perhaps it's just the little L.A girl in me that loves the pretty, bohemian style best. Or perhaps, I lost myself and I'm finally finding my way back.
