hey, boyfriend!


Maybe you've noticed that I've been wearing my boyfriend jeans like they're going out of style.  And although I am absolutely in love with them, there's a reason why I'm discriminating against my other pants.  
I'm currently undergoing physical therapy to heal a knee that I hurt while exercising a few weeks ago.  Honestly, the worst part of this knee injury is that I can't wear pants that are tight around my knee.  
So, there you have it.  Goodbye, skinny jeans!  Hello, boyfriend jeans.-- for a little while anyway. :)

work hard, play hard.

Hey, Loves!  Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
I'm spending my long weekend relaxing, shopping for home decor, and seeing a couple of movies I've been wanting to see for a while.  (I saw The Great Gatsby today and loved it!)

What are you guys doing this weekend?
Enjoy it!

1 bikini, 6 brilliant ways!

It had never occurred to me until today that a simple bikini could be worn different ways.  I mean, it's a bikini, there's not much fabric.  But, leave it to Pinterest to strike again!

P.S. If you need me, I'll be wrapped up in bikini strings trying to copy the looks below. ;)

blossom time!

Life has been super busy lately (as always, amirite?!) and I just got back from a long all-day work conference.  So instead of attempting to write anything coherent, let me just share a picture that hubs and I took for a Pinterest project that I'm working on.  (I can't wait to share it with y'all this Summer!)

fashionmeleon.


Sometimes I have a hard time defining my style.  Does this happen to any of you?  I just love so many different looks that I can't stick to one.  
Like on Monday, I felt a little edgy.  But, today was all about the Audrey Hepburn girly feel.
But, really, at the end of the day isn't that what fashion is all about?!  Being able to completely change your look from one day to the next. ;)

feelin' springy!


This week was absolutely beautiful.  Almost every day, the sun was out and birds were singing cute little Springy bird songs.  And I'll be the first one to admit that the weather totally affects my mood, and in turn, my outfits.  
Hence, all the Springy looks below! :)
