Neutral Territory






What I'm Wearing: Jeans J Brand | Top ADDISON | Sweater Michael Stars | Shoes Steve Madden | Hat Janessa Leone

By the time you are reading this I will be on a plane to South Africa. AHH! I'm so excited! But fear not, I have queued up some posts for while I'm gone. And you can follow along with my trip by following my instagram (@melissapaigee). But, back to the outfit. This one is certainly a rarity for me, as I am not usually one to show off my stomach but I just loved the idea of a crop top, high waisted jeans, and a long sweater so I had to try it out. And I threw my new hat on top, which I am absolutely in love with, especially since it's the only hat that I could find that fits my little head.

Ripped






What I'm Wearing: Jeans One Teaspoon | Sweater Joie | Sandals Proenza Schouler

This is probably the last time for a while that I'll be wearing jeans and a sweater (bites tongue, just in case) because to be honest I was even sweating a little taking these pictures. It has gotten quite hot, and I am not complaining. These jeans are definitely going to remain a staple in my summer wardrobe though, the off-white color combined with the perfect destroyed look make them perfect to pair with just about anything. And I'm not packing this sweater away yet either, paired with a pair of shorts its perfect for this warmer weather.

Dreaming of..



Currently dreaming of these Céline platform loafers, or these slightly more affordable, but barely, Stella McCartney ones. I love that they have the comfortability of a skater shoe, but at the same time they give you that extra inch. Will probably never own either (unless someone really nice wants to come along and buy them for me..) , but regardless, just thought I'd share some major shoe inspiration/envy.

Insta-Outfit | Shades Of Grey


What I'm Wearing: Jeans J Brand | Shirt Helmut Lang | Shoes Proenza Schouler

Here's a quick post featuring yesterday's insta-outfit, wearing the best grey/black ripped jeans and an awesome off the sale rack find, this helmut lang top with leather shoulders, plus my go-to shoes for the summer. I was at my sister's college graduation last weekend so I didn't get a chance to take any pictures, but I will post some fun things, not sure what yet, but I guess we shall see..

I Fold






What I'm Wearing: Pants Vince | Tee Free People | Shoes Stuart Weitzman

It is only on very rare occasions that you will find me not wearing denim. Honestly, basically every single day I wear a pair of jeans, and in the summer I heavily rely on a good pair of denim shorts for most outfits. So, for that reason, it has to be a really good pair of pants to get me to leave my trusty denim behind. And Vince did just that. They went and created these awesome fold-over waist pants that are not only super comfortable, but also so easy to wear. Easily styled with a tee and shoes of your choice (I chose a pair with just the smallest bit of added height), these pants, or a similar pair, are the perfect addition to any spring wardrobe.

The Blues





What I'm Wearing: Jeans AG Jeans | Tee Alice + Olivia | Shoes Vince

Just put together some denim on denim for the spring. I love the relaxed fit of this denim tee, perfect to tie-up or keep loose over some skinny jeans. Also really love the blue lenses of my Ray-Bans against the different shades of blue denim. It has me feeling very blue... but in a good way.

Bright Whites






What I'm Wearing: Jeans J Brand | Sweater Vince | Shoes Vince

Finally some spring weather! It was so hot out yesterday I felt seriously overdressed in just jeans and a t-shirt. Unfortunately, or fortunately, the 80 degree weather is not going to last, but 60s and 70s are good with me. (It's the rain that I am so not happy about) Anyway, for spring one thing I really love is fresh, bright whites. So, of course this sweater is one of my favorite spring pieces. It's long sleeves but the mesh material makes it perfect for the warmer weather. Really though, anything Vince is good in my book, I'd probably live in the brand if I could afford it. And, as you can tell both the weather and this outfit have made me very happy. They even have me jumping for joy in that first picture..

Met Gala 2014





While I promise I do have outfit photos to post for you this week, I also promise none of my looks will be nearly as extravagant as some of those seen at last night's Met Gala. Seriously, it was hard to pick my favorites because there were just so many amazing looks. Whether it was stars sporting the most amazing gowns, or those who attempted to stand out from the crowd in more casual looks (see Cara Delevingne and Elizabeth Olsen) they all brought their best fashion game to the event. And while I'm sure there were some amazing looks I missed while making this post I hope you enjoy those I have picked above.

Vested Interests






What I'm Wearing: Jeans AG Jeans | Tee Aritzia | Vest/Blazer Elizabeth and James | Sneakers Converse

These ripped jeans have been on serious repeat lately. Honestly, I'm not exaggerating when I say these may be the comfiest pair of jeans I own. (Well, it's probably a tossup between these and my J Brand stocking jeans) But, obviously to keep them from getting boring I have to switch up the rest of my outfit. I had seen this Elizabeth and James vest/blazer combo online and then just a few weeks later I spotted nearly identical pieces at a sample sale, talk about a total score. I love how both pieces work well together and apart. But I really do love just wearing the sporty little vest, so perfect for spring.
