My first weekend back in the east bay and I was welcomed with the HEAT, baby! When Summer rolls around, I gear up my closet by putting the turtle necks and knits way in the back and give all of my Summer clothes a chance. Luckily, the weather here can go from Summer-to-Winter feeling real [...]

Is it Summer yet? Even after being here for two years, I am still a Floridian after all! We've been having some interesting weather here in the East Bay. From rainy and cold to dry and hot, my skin and my outfits have endured enough! Maybe you're already prepped for Summer with your colorful outfits [...]

I've been dreading this post because it forces me to face a reality that I simply am not ready to face. And things are about to get a little sentimental up in here so grab a tissue. I might've mentioned that not too long ago our great friend, my homie, and cool kid on the [...]

It's a new month and a brand new Monday, babes! Between wedding planning and starting a new career chapter, my favorite moments to be creative come from styling an outfit.

As my Spring love affair continues on, I'm sharing another look in collaboration with Banana Republic! I love that statement neck scarves are stepping into the lime light. If you're an OG MELSANV reader you may remember this neck scarf from this post or even this one. It's definitely an oldie/goodie situation. And when I [...]

Today I'm bringing back a style post to highlight a brand that I feel has really evolved over time. If you're no stranger to the Gap brands then you know Banana Republic recently upped their spring wardrobe game to include brighter colors, bold prints and beautiful fabrics. As someone who is always cold (always), I [...]

Wait, what? It's 2016! Can't even type these words.. we have 2 weeks left of January (insert rolling eyes emoji)!!! 2015 honestly felt like it was ripped- no pried out of my hands so it's no surprise I'm taking advantage of every weekend and day off possible this year.

You guys. I can't believe it. It's the LAST blog post of 2015! That a crazy crazyyyyyy year! It's been so fun to try new styles and practice new editing techniques. I am slowly cutting over into an editorial taste. Where everything that calls my attention is much more about the entire experience than just [...]

You might remember me talking about Leota New York from my #MondayMuse post featuring girl boss, Nailah Ali. It sparked an interest in me to work with Leota because their dresses are too fab! My favorite part is that they cater to every size and even have a maternity line - cutie pregos unite! So [...]
