Day 26

Day 26 was a great day!

I wore my dress for the third time and I actually wore it in two different ways today. Originally I was wearing a blue chunky necklace, the blue cardigan and my flat sandals. Later in the evening when I wanted to dress it up I changed into my brown heels and added a DIY flower.

Like I said in yesterdays post, today I had a hair appointment with Marlee at Axis Salon. She gave my hair a trim and a bit more shape with some layers and then styled it for me.I wish I would have had these pictures taken right after my appointment because my hair looked amazing! I ended up walking around for a couple hours before meeting up and taking these pics so it was a little wind blown by this point. Marlee gave me lots of tips about the best ways to take care of my fine hair so I'm really happy about that. I'm finding it's been extra dry lately from all this sun so I'm looking forward to reviving it!
In true Melissa fashion I was early for my appointment today which just so happened to be when Marlee was taking her lunch break. It was perfect timing so we walked down to the water and chatted for a bit. I haven't seen Marlee in seriously forever so it was really nice catching up.
 Happy Weekend!!PS- Thanks again for all your lovely comments. I seriously have some amazing followers who have been beyond supportive. You guys rock! :)

30 for 30 Banner


  1. such a cute outfit!!

    i'm seriously needing to do this 30 on 30 challenge as well.

  2. It still looks amazing! And I love love love orange and blue together :)
    P.S. I tagged you on my blog

  3. These photos are sooo gorgeous! What a good photographer/boyfriend!

    I love that dress, and your hair looks wonderful!


  4. I adore the addition of the yellow flower to the dress! And with the blue cardigan - fabulous! Blue and yellow is so pretty.

    Our plan for today is to take our daughter to Maggiano's (an Italian Restaurant) for a children's cooking class (she's only three, so this should be interesting) which includes lunch afterward...and then hopefully hitting up the outlet mall! Whee!

  5. I'm going to my work today (aka the Saint Louis Zoo) with my mom and her friend - our goal is to feed our stingrays, then hanging out with my BF - I haven't seen him in three days, I miss him! Other than that, nothing!

    Don't you love your hair right after you get it done? It's always so shiny and perfect. When I was in college I would only get it done on the weekends so it would look good for the bars that night!

  6. I love this dress even more with the blue and yellow. Your haircut looks great!

    I'm not doing anything exciting this weekend, so we will both live vicariously through someone else! :o)

  7. Your dress is super cute and I love the pop of orange with the gorgeous corsage xoxo

  8. The flower is a very nice touch. It works very well with the dress and the blue cardigan. The photos look great too.

  9. The flower and cardi look great with that dress! and the background shots with the flowers make compliment the outfit also!
