Over The Edge


 
Shorts: Old Navy
 
 
 
 
 

 
Happy Monday Sweets!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!  As always they are way too short.  I feel like this summer is just flying by.  Where did July go?  Can't wait for my Chicago trip next month! 
 
Today I'm mixing it up and getting a little edgy.  I got this moto vest at Kohl's and I think it's a perfect piece to transition into fall and winter.  I get to a point where I stop buying summer clothes and think about pieces that I can wear into fall.  This vest is perfect for that.  I can wear it now with shorts or dresses like I did, or I can wear it later with knee boots and jeans.  I wore it with wedge espadrilles to give it that summer feel.  Hope you like!
 
Have a great day!

Kimonos & Slides

 
 
 
 
Kimono, Boyfriend Shorts, & Slides all from Wet Seal:
Tee: Target
Sunnies: N/A
Clutch: Nine West
 

 
 
 Today is Trendy Thursday!  Kimonos and slides are on the top of the summer charts.  I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a pair of slides, since I hear they aren't as comfortable as they look.  I scored these for less than $5 at Wet Seal.  If your wondering if they were comfy, they did hurt a little after a while.  I'm glad I got these for such a bargain. 
 
Moving on to kimonos.....I just love them!  They are the perfect addition to any simple basic outfit.  Long, short, or fringed they have so many colors and patterns you can wear them basically over anything.  I have a few short ones already in my closet so when I saw this long one at Wet Seal, I knew I had to add it to my collection.  I also wanted to point out that I've been living in these boyfriend shorts.  They have been my go to shorts this summer.  I'm sure you'll see them again, and again.
 
 
Have a lovely day!

Hubby Jeans

 
Necklace: Wet Seal
Top: Candies (Kohl's)
Clutch: Loop via Five Below (old)
Bracelets: Charming Charlie
 
  
Lipstick: Rimmel London (Lasting Finish by Kate Moss #12)
 
 

 
 
Hi there sweets.  Today were talking boyfriend jeans or what I like to call them "hubby jeans!"  I haven't had a boyfriend in years...lol!  I've been looking for boyfriend jeans for a while now and couldn't find the right fit.  They were either to loose or to tight.  I'm so petite that boyfriend jeans can be hard to find the perfect fit, but I found an awesome pair at Wet Seal.  Now I know why the trend is so popular, they are so easy.  They look great with heels, flats, dressed up or down.  If you think my hunt was over, think again.  Now I have to find a pair with less rips for winter.  Let the saga continue....... 
-----------
Como estan dulces.  Hoy estamos hablando jeans de novio o lo que me gusta llamar "Esposo jeans!"  No he tenido un novio en años ... lolHe estado buscando para los jeans de novio desde hace un tiempo y no podía encontrar el ajuste más adecuado.  Eran demasiado flojo o apretado.  Yo soy de Etalla pequeña y jeans de novio pueden ser difíciles de encontrar el ajuste perfecto, pero me encontré con un par impresionante en Wet Seal.  Ahora sé por qué la moda es tan popular, son tan fácilesSe ven muy bien con tacones, tacones bajo, vistido formalmente o relajado.  Si usted piensa que mi búsqueda había terminado, se equivoca.  Ahora tengo que encontrar un par con menos roturas para el invierno.  Deje que la saga continúe .......

Dear Chambray, I Love You!

 
 
 
 
 
Chambray Top: Mossimo Chambray Top (Target)
Belt: New York & Company
Skirt: Forever 21 via Thredup
Wedges: Kohl's
Clutch & Bracelets: Gift
 
 

 
The most versatile piece in my closet?  Goes with everything?  Yes and yes! 
It doesn't get any more clearer than that.  I LOVE chambray shirts!   
 
Try them tucked into a skirt (like I did here), half tucked with jeans, unbuttoned with a tank or dress underneath for a laid back look and one of my favorites is pairing it with a colored or printed denim.  Or even denim on denim, the list could go on and on.  The Possibilities are literally endless, it's easy-going and classic.  My fav!
------------
La pieza más versátil en mi armario? Va con todo? y sí!
No hay nada más claro que eso. AMO camisas de jeans.
 
Trata lo escondida en una falda (como lo hice aquí), medio escondido con los jeans, desabrochados con un tanque o un vestido por debajo para un look relajado y uno de mis favoritos es el emparejamiento con un denim coloreados o impresosO incluso denim sobre denim, la lista podría seguir y seguir. Las posibilidades son literalmente infinitas, es fácil de llevar y clásico.  Mi favorito!

Necklace: {c/o} Sandy's Jeweled Necklace
 
 
 
 
Boyfriend Shorts: Wet Seal
Sandals: Zara
Clutch: Mandee
 
 
Bracelets: My sweet cousin Sofia made them for me, I haven't taken them off since!  Thank you my little love muffin! 
 
 
 
 
Mixing prints is one of my favorite things to do.  I think once you learn to mix prints, outfit possibilities are endless.  Gabby from Gabby's House of Jewelry sent me this gorgeous statement necklace, and instead of wearing just a basic t-shirt I decided to wear this Bold Sun Flower Chiffon Top from OASAP.  Double the statement?  Why not!
 
  I'm also one of those girls who instead of taking something off when I leave the house,  I go back for more.  LOL!  Why not, it's summer right.  It's all about bold colors.  The Sandy's Jeweled Necklace is truly the only statement necklace you'll need this summer.  The colors are just gorgeous and you can dress it up or down.  The sweetest part is you get to take 10% off with my special code.

Mezclando impresiones es una de mis cosas favoritas para hacerCreo que una vez que se aprende a mezclar impresiones, las posibilidades de ropa son infinitas.  Gabby de Joyeria de Gabby me envió este collar precioso, y en lugar de usar sólo una camiseta básica decidí usar esta blusa de la flor de sol de OASAP.  Doble impresiones?  Por qué no!

Yo también soy una de esas chicas que en lugar de quitarme joyas cuando salgo de la casa, voy por más.  LOL! ¿Por qué no, es veranoTodo es cuestión de color para el veranoEl collar Jeweled de Sandy es verdaderamente el único collar que necesitas este verano.  Los colores son simplemente preciosos y usted puedes usar lo de día o de noche.  La parte mas dulce es que te tome 10% de descuento con mi código especial.

Team Red, White, & Blue




3 day weekends are bomb.com!  Happy birthday America! 
 
I put this last minute 4th of July look for all you fashionistas that might need some ideas for the weekend.  I initially wanted to wear a red dress, but I was racing against Mother Nature.  The dress was so hard to iron, and it just wasn't working and the clouds were coming; so this girl said jeans and tee it is.  Maybe I'll wear the dress for a bbq I have on Saturday then I'll share it with you on Monday. 
When it comes to the 4th of July outfit ideas are pretty easy.  We all have a little red, white, and blue in our closets.  Casual is usually my go to for the 4th. (and life in general..lol)  I'm all about backyard bbq's and watching the fireworks.  I added a fun statement necklace and blue metallic strappy sandals just to spice it up a little.    
------------ 
Fin de semana de 3 días me encantan!  Feliz cumpleaños America!
 
Puse a último minuto un look para el quatro de julio para todos que nesesitan ideas para el fin de semana.  Al principio quería poner me un vestido rojo, pero yo estaba corriendo contra la Madre Naturaleza.  El vestido era tan difícil para planchar, y simplemente no estaba funcionando y las nubes se acercaban;esta chica dijo camiseta y jeans es lo que hay.  Tal vez me pongo el vestido para una barbacoa que tengo el sábado luego compartere con ustedes el lunes.
Cuando se trata de el 4 de julio de ideas de vestir son bastante fáciles. Todos tenemos un poco de rojo, blanco y azul en nuestros armarios.  Me encanta los Backyard BBQ y ver los fuegos artificiales. 
Me puse un collar divertido y sandalias azules de tiras metálicos simplemente para sazonar el look un poco.
 


 
 
 
 
Today's post is all about red, white and blue, but I just couldn't resist wearing this stunning necklace by Gabby's House of Jewelry.  I'll be featuring it next week on the blog, but if you LOVE it as much as I do and can't wait till then it's available now with an extra 10% off  just use melissasweetstyles10 at checkout.

#arianasnation



 
Today's post is dedicated to my sweet baby cousin Ariana!  You rock!
 
Ariana is one of the bravest girls I know.  I know she's braver than me!   She's only 13yrs old and my family came all the way from Texas so that she could swim with the sharks.  Here's a little info on
"Lady Liberty Sharkfest"
 
Sharks in Jersey City? You can bet there will be in June when several hundred swimmers (aka, sharks) descend there. What could be more sensational than swimming in the waters off the iconic Statue of Liberty, the most well known lady in the United States? The swim will start just outside the security zone of Liberty Island and will go past the historic Ellis Island and the Colgate clock on the Jersey City shoreline, then into the Morris Canal to finish at Liberty Landing Marina in Liberty State Park with a view of the new Freedom Tower in the background. 
 
  


 
Ariana and her sister Sofia have been swimming since they were little girls.  They are truly inspiring young ladies.
 
 
My family and I were so excited to cheer her on!  ARIANA NATION!  Ariana won 1st place in her age group!  She's a super star!

Ariana, you've truly become such a beautiful young lady.  We love you, and are all SOOOO VERY PROUD of you and all your accomplishments.  Swim on girl!

28 Days of Freedom w/ Veet


Summer, summer, summertime!  Time to sit back and unwind!  (I love that DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince song!)  Time for hitting up the beaches, tanning, walks in the park, backyard bbq's, and lounging by the pool.  As the weather gets hotter, so do our shorts and skirts.  And lets not forget its swimsuit season...eeek! 

With all that said; Summer also means your shaving everyday or at least 3 or more times a week!  I have super sensitive skin, and shaving too often for me causes my skin to be very dry, and I sometimes get razor bumps.  Nobody likes those!  I'm happy to say I've teamed up with Veet for 28 days of freedom with their ready to use wax strips.

 
 I must honestly say, this was my very first time trying an at home wax. 
I was surprised how easy it was and it smelled pretty.  It has almond oil & vitamin E.  I was also pleasantly surprised at how large the strips were.  The actual process is simple.  Rub the strips together to warm a little, peel the strips back and apply.  It was super easy!  My legs felt like butta baby. 

 
 
 
Fedora: Avon
Top: The Limited
Shorts: Target
Sneaks: Converse
 
During the summer no one wants dry, bumpy skin so I'm all about having smooth, hairless skin for as long as I can.  With Veet Wax strips you have 28 days of  freedom for more pool parties, more tanning, and of course more FUN in the sun!  Summertime is the one season where unexpected plans are bound to happen.  And with 28 days of freedom, I can be mini skirt ready at anytime! 

I've been hairless for 4 days and counting!  
 
These are also great for vacation.  Now that they have all these size restrictions on what and how much you can carry on, you can leave all your razors and shaving products behind.  For 28 days!  Don't you wish vaca lasted that long.  Ughhh....a girl can dream.  With my skin being as sensitive as it is, I'm super excited to try the bikini and face strips next!

Happy Summer!
