Highlight of the Year


Black has been my color of choice for the past year or so, but this fluorescent yellow will always be dear to my heart. It holds residency at raves, but it isn't typically featured on a daily basis anywhere else. I love incorporating it into my outfits because the color itself is unexpected. It practically forces everyone's eyes to be on you, so I definitely feel a sense of confidence when wearing it. When attempting to wear fluorescents on a daily basis, I would say to try to stick with simple silhouettes and choose accessories that don't overpower your fluorescent piece. 

So, alas, I've decided to publicize a little something I've been working on, which is a Summer Lookbook video! I'd appreciate it so much if you guys could check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n30pyrFMr7Q (or it will be posted at the end of this blog post). I had a blast filming and editing it. It was really fun being able to incorporate my love for both music and fashion. If you like the video, it would be awesome if you could share it with your friends and family. Thank you for checking out my blog & see you soon!

Hot Tropic


This outfit practically screams, "I'm on vacation" or "I'm going on vacation". Nevertheless, do not be fooled, for I have the utmost privilege of working endlessly in retail this wondrous summer. But, hey, a girl can dream of palm trees and sipping coconut drinks in the tropics.

Blue is definitely my go-to color when I'm not adorning the hundreds of black clothing items in my closet. Regardless of the shade of blue, the color still complements my skin tone and highlights my tan brilliantly. Finding the color that you feel goes best with your skin tone may depend on whether you have warm or cool tones, but it's also dependent on trial-and-error. You can find thousands of factual articles that tell you this color goes best with this skin tone, etc., but if you don't like that color, then those articles are completely useless. Find a color that is consistent throughout your wardrobe that highlights your body and most importantly, makes you feel confident whenever it's on you. Thanks again for checking out my blog and have a great week!

Dressin' Boho, Ridin' Solo


Boho has never been my forte, nor has it ever been repetitively incorporated into my personal style. However, I am working towards my fashion mantra in fearlessly establishing outfits outside of my comfort zone. 

I found that in order to cultivate the effortless, yet chic perfection of bohemian style, a neutral color palette, intricate patterns, and lightweight fabrications are all you need. Although this style is outside my comfort zone, I'll definitely be rocking this look more often, especially now that it's summer. The pants are absolutely comfortable and provide much more movement than jeans, while the crocheted top allows more breathability than your typical t-shirt. Thanks for checking out my blog & have an amazing weekend!

Incredulous


The time has arrived where, I, Melissa Carlay, am wearing head-to-toe color. The last time I recall color blocking to this extremity was when I was still in high school. I must admit that I lost a little confidence in my style when I entered college, but I'm slowly trying to revive my spontaneous and fearless outfits that truly represent my personal style. 

I absolutely love these jeans because of its striking color and its sateen finish that makes it comfortable to wear throughout the day. And let's not forget about this incredible muscle tee. Wearing it always reminds me to rock my outfit with confidence. The shirt is already bright and obnoxious (in the best way possible), so I might as well wear it with pride. As always, thanks for checking out my blog!

Bag Lady


I've had this bag for a little over a year now and I still can't get over how perfect this shade of yellow is.   It's very unexpected and that's exactly why I fell in love with it. Although it's not your average black, white, or nude bag, it's still versatile with any outfit, as are any primary colors. 

Thanks for checking out my blog & a big thank you again to my favorite DJ/Producer, Joanna, aka the Tecnotik, for taking these pictures of me!
