Captain America Crossbody


It's finally here!! The most anticipated movie of the year - Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War. I will be seeing it tonight and can't wait to spoil it for everyone (I kid, I kid). 

I came across this Captain America Crossbody recently from Loungefly and fell in love. It definitely became a great addition to my style and getting it just in time when the movie hits the big screen is a win, win.  

For me, I love picking a bag that speaks to me and trust me when I say that this Captain America crossbody spoke to me. Not just because I have a huge crush on Chris Evans, but Captain America is my ultimate favorite Marvel character. I love that this crossbody makes such a subtle statement without overdoing it.  Needless to say, the Captain America (especially when paired with this a simple outfit like this black romper) has yet to disappoint. It really makes for a unique statement bag! Who else will be watching Marvel's Infinity War tonight? -xo Mel

Wide-Leg Chino Pants


I have become such a fan of high-waisted pants. Call it mom jeans or whatever you want, they are just so comfortable and frame my body just right. I am also glad that wide-leg pants are popping back up as a HUGE trend. I used to wear them so much when I was younger and fast forward to now, I cannot get enough of them. Literally, obsessed. It is almost as if a light bulb went off in my head and I realized how much I love great wide-leg chino pants. It's so comfortable to be in all day and so easy to transform from a day look into the night look. 

There are so many versions and styles of wide-leg pants, that I know I will be able to mix up the look enough by wearing them with blazers, plain tee shirts & blouses throughout the spring and summer. I particular love these wide-leg taupe chino pants that I found at Forever 21 for under $20! I paired them with a body suit, blazer and some easy slide on heels from Target. Who doesn't love a good spring taupe pants that you can mix and match with other things in your closet?  Are you a fan of the wide-leg pants look? I'm sharing some of my other favorite colors and brands of this particular style below. Enjoy! -xo Mel

Red Spring Dress


Spring has sprung and the weather in Dallas has been lately beautiful. I began to start running again and the weather has been a steady 70 degrees and chilly at night. I immediately remember how much I love the spring and summer….specifically for the dresses. Even though I am a bit on the tomboy side, I do like throwing on a dress here and there just to change things up and feel girly. 

As such a fan of flowy dresses, I love when I find an easy slip-on dress like this red blue dress by Who What Wear at Target. I love this color of red and the fact that it's so comfortable to wear all day – from a day look paired with a jean jacket and sandals to throwing on heels for a night out, this dress hits in just the right place!
