N Y to L A…I may be a cali gal now, but my heart will always be in NY (hey that is where my family is!) So when Shoot The Moon LA sent me this NY to LA tee it not only put a smile on my face, but it actually warmed my heart. I love when clothing has a sentimental value…it makes it mean so much more than just a pretty thing to wear 😉I was never one for graphic tees but this vintage looking style and understated print really is perfect to dress up or down for any occasion. I of course in true Melissa fashion had to dress it up with a little white skater skirt (similar) + a black floppy hat (my fall season staple).
Happy Monday Lovers! I had quite a busy weekend filled with outfit shoots, Long Island adventures and some fun new blog concepts…but I think I should run some of them by you guys to see what you think…but first let’s break down this little look I’m rocking today. Gingham is a great print for fall…especially when it’s affordable like this button down top from Target. My top and pale pink skirt are both Target Style finds…now that’s guilt free shopping! What I love about gingham is that you can dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion…I love it layered with jeans for a casual look or for a more dressed up look, simply pair it with a light weight skirt like I did here. My monogrammed clutch is from GiGi NY and it comes it countless hues and is a great going out back that adds a pop of color to any ensemble. Pale pink pumps?…Umm yes! These beauties are from NYLA…unfortunately they are a bit too small on me so you can actually score these straight from my Poshmark closet for a fraction of the actual retail cost. Once again rocking my Kendra Scott druszy ring…I think I am slightly obsessed…oops! Now to share my idea with you guys…it seems that the wave of the future or rather now is being a video vixen (not in THAT way…) but rather stepping in front of the camera and chatting away rather than just taking pretty pictures. So after some talking with my brother aka my photographer we came up with an idea of doing an ongoing video series to accompany my blog…what do you guys think? Are videos the way to go? What kind of videos would you like to see?! Share your thoughts with me PLEASE 🙂 On a side note…I love this pose above and this pose below…gone with the wind fabulous captured = win for Missy <3 Shop My Look<3
