Black Out…Nothing I love more than an all black chic look for fall. I have been loving the sleeveless vest trend, so when Go Jane sent me this beige one I figured I would let it take center stage paired with an all black outfit 😉 Since I always like a little color with every outfit, this colorful backdrop (which is actually the outside of a Mexican restaurant located at the bottom of the Hollywood Hills) was perfect to brighten up this dark look!This sleeveless vest is a piece I will be wearing for the rest of fall and even winter. Layer it over a blouse, sweater or even a crop top like this one and it makes an otherwise simple look, more ‘put together’.
I took a break from reality TV tonight (and if you aren’t caught up, by tonight I mean last night since I write my posts the night before they are published…I like to be confusing…it’s my specialty…just ask the guys I go on dates with that remain befuddled after it’s over haha :p). Anyway, I managed to get myself away from Bravo for a night and am writing this post while watching a marathon of ‘Big Bang Theory‘ which without fail always has me laughing…Sheldon Cooper never ceases to amuse me 🙂 What else amazes me? The fact that I am actually able to wear leopard print without feeling like I look like Snooki (Jersey Shore version…now I love her…#fitspiration). This look also includes one of my spring time essentials…ripped skinny jeans!
It’s #ThrowbackThursday everyone which gives me the fair and equal right to share this look that was shot back in August with you guys today 😉 (I love how #TBT makes it ok to share old things and make them new…don’t you?!) Ok so let’s get down to business because I am writing this while cracking up hysterical at George Lopez on WWHL (such a Bravo addict…#SorryNotSorry) and need to attempt to get some R & R to properly function at work (insert monkey emoji covering it’s eyes here lol)I love everything about this look because it is truly ‘Missy’ in a nutshell…it’s girly, includes my favorite white boyfriend blazer, my signature Rebecca Minkoff mini mac bag and of course…a skater skirt!My white boyfriend blazer is from LC By Lauren Conrad but I found an identical blazer on sale for under $30 at SheInside here. Any excuse to wear a skirt is fine by me…especially one with a flirty print like this polka dot one (available from Choies here).My Rebecca Minkoff mini mac bag is another one of my signature “go to’s” when I am unsure of what to wear for a date, a girls’ night or even just to run errands. And…with a good bag comes even better shoes…enter these NYLA beauties (available on my Poshmark here). They are cute, unique and show off my pedicure (here’s to warm weather wishing…I can’t wear these beauties for a while!)On a side note…I am not enjoying this freezing cold weather…when I look at outfits like this it makes me miss summer more and more…sigh.| Click To Shop My Look |
Happy Monday Loves! I hope you had a fun filled weekend like I did…lets’ just say it involved some shopping, outfit shoots and…blogging. Just Kidding (not really), but I also spent some quality time with family and friends and ventured out on Long Island. So I learned while working in NYC that it is essential to have a great day to night transition look. A great outfit to wear from 9-5 but that can easily be ‘glammed’ up or down for happy hour. I think I finally found the perfect ensemble. I’ve seen a lot of ladies rock crop tops to the office…while I think it’s daring, I still opt to make the look a bit traditional by adding a chic black blazer paired with a printed high waisted skirt like this one from Prabal Gurung for Target (love a great Look For Less collab). I always have to add a ‘Pop Of Color’ to every look, so queue the cobalt blue quilted clutch. I scored this bag on sale at Lord & Taylor last year, but everyone always assumes it’s designer…don’t you love when that happens? My first pair of shoes for the ‘day’ look are from Nine West. These black booties are simply stunning and they are comfortable too. A great shoe to wear year round. Now for my ‘night’ portion. Not much changes except loosing the blazer and adding an even sexier shoe.My shoes are also Prabal Gurung for Target (I found similar one’s from Nine West available now). These are my ‘sexy’ shoes. Comfortable for a night filled with dancing, but also classy enough for a nice dinner. I simply love this look, now I just need somewhere to go!Shop My Look<3
Happy Thursday Honey Bees…somewhat appropriate for today’s post entitled ‘Buzz Buzz’. As if it weren’t already obvious, I’m rocking some black & yellow today and other than reminding me of the lyrics ‘black & yellow, black & yellow, black & yellow’ from Wiz Khalifa (somewhat rap obsessed), this look reminded me of a honey bee 😉 Little Fun Fact…Melissa in Greek apparently means Honey Bee, got to love when your parents buy you little poems and sayings as a child telling you all about yourself before you even know who you truly are! Ok, so this shot is my all time favorite! I looked and thought wow I look confident and sexy…while I try to have that attitude everyday, sometimes it doesn’t always happen, but in today’s post it definitely shined through, don’t you think? My bright yellow jeggings are from Hue. I love their bottoms because they flatter every figure…stretch is always a must for me when it comes to find the perfect pant, you want them to hug all the right places…work it at all times. My black silk top with a sexy little cut out in the middle is from ASOS. I’m definitely not adventurous enough to wear it without a black bandeau underneath, but I think it still does the trick. Back to my Rebecca Minkoff obsession. Another fun fact…I own the ‘Mini Mac Bag‘ in 4 different colors and I am still always tempted to buy more. It is a great going out bag; whether it’s a day trip or just a girls night, it has enough room for beauty essentials, your keys, wallet and anything else a gal may need. These fab black lace up heels are from Target! I love when designers make ‘Look For Less’ collections with affordable stores and these beauties are from the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration a year or so ago.Shop My Look Below<3
