Red Floral Dress

So let me start off by saying, I’m not really a girly girl dress type of person. I wear them on occasions, but never been a huge fan of dresses for the simple fact I love to feel comfortable all day. Sneakers and t-shirts has always been my go-to pieces,  but once you find those perfect statement dresses, it’s hard not to feel pretty in them.

I got this dress a few weeks ago (when the weather was perfect) and the moment I put the dress on I immediately thought of a thousand different places I could wear it. Lunches, cocktail parties, by the beach, and even a spring/summer wedding. As someone who is not normally drawn to a floral girly dresses, I decided to branch out this summer and give it a go. Much to my surprise, I really this style of dress. The silhouette is a classic look and feel(and very flattering on my shape), it’s even better in person and I think it looks so good in photos!

This red floral dress really is the perfect addition to my spring (and summer) wardrobe. I cannot wait to wear it to special occasions! I am also sharing a few of my other favorite red floral dress finds below. Enjoy! -xo Mel 



Movie Review: Incredibles 2


After 14 years, The Incredibles is back! Was it worth the wait? 

Yes, yes and more yes. Incredibles 2 is exactly what you would expect it to be. It’s a fun, well-made sequel to one of Pixar’s most beloved franchises that is great entertainment for the whole family — not quite as good as the original, but easily an enjoyable film. Incredibles 2 is a really well-thought out film, bringing out my inner kid, and laughing at the relatable situations we tend to face every day.

Incredibles 2 picks up right in the aftermath of Brad Bird’s 2004 original. Unfortunately, despite the heroes making a comeback, what they’re doing is still illegal. Their big fight catches the eye of a CEO that is an advocate for super-rights. He contacts the supers in hopes of changing the public’s perception. CEO Winston Deavor and his sister Evelyn are publicity and tech geniuses that use their sway to push the supers back into the limelight, starting with Elastigirl. While she’s out fighting the Screenslaver, Mr. Incredible is left to take care of the family. This includes Jack-Jack’s newly discovered powers, Violet’s boy troubles, and Dash’s math homework.

The animation quality has obviously gotten much better since 2004. The film looks extremely detailed. The colors, the action scenes, the details of their suits got all super. My favorite Incredible, of course, is Jack-Jack who stole the show to me. He definitely brought most of the entertainment in the movie, and his superpowers are incredible and fun to watch as he discovers more and more what he can do. There is one Jack-Jack fight scene that is very exciting and funny, but I won’t spoil it for you. 

Incredibles 2 remains super to my eyes. And plus, not all heroes wear capes. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. If you have seen the film, let me know your thoughts. Enjoy! -xo Mel 

Black Jumpsuit


As of late I have had this major obsession with jumpsuits. They are the easiest thing to just throw on and look effortlessly put together. I saw this black jumpsuit at Forever 21 for under $30 and I knew it would be the perfect piece to wear this summer and also long after.

Something about this black jumpsuit makes it feel extra dressy when I really don't feel like dressing up, which I love. I recently wore this black jumpsuit (size small) to the new Takashi Murakami's exhibit at the Modern Museum of Fort Worth and will say it is very comfortable to be in all day. I paired this black jumpsuit with my new favorite white Greece Leather Sandals by Steve Madden for that extra comfort of walking around the museum. This black jumpsuit will definitely be on repeat this summer for both a day and night look.
