happy monday

 {Wearing: Zara Coat, Club Monaco Blouse, True Value Vintage Jeans, Zara Pumps & Coach Bag}

Happy Monday! Okay, so I only sort of meant that. I hope everyone's weekends were lovely. Mine involved celebrating a good friend's birthday and setting my oven on fire. The events were unrelated. This week is going to be a busy one but I'm actually looking forward to it. I have a few things on the go that I am excited for so as long as I can stay awake I'll be good to go.

Anything eventful happen this weekend? Anything that involved throwing water into your oven to put out the flames? No? Just me?


  1. melissa you look stunning in this studded jacket! i'm always passing up on zara coats only to totally regret it when i see it on other bloggers =) loving your blog, can't wait to look around!

  2. I love this coat! Zara is such a wonderful store. I always find such wonderful pieces there. Amanda Seyfried was stunning last night. I also loved Jennifer Lawrence's effortlessly beautiful chic look. xx. McKenna Lou


  3. So i am trying to decide what part of this outfit i like most! I love the studs and I adore the shoes! It's just too hard to decide!


  4. Navy is such a good color on you! I wish I would have splurged on those Zara shoes! Now they're nowhere to be found :(.

  5. It was my grandmas 80th birthday this weekend, but I think setting your oven on fire may top that..
    love you top with those lovely embellishments, and like I've said before, awesome jacket ;) xo

  6. Your hair is so gorgeous. You make me seriously contemplate bringing bangs back into my life. Your cut and colour are perfect.

    Love this look, head to toe.

  7. I love the coat! Is it in-store at the moment?
    My friends and I had a mini Oscars party and burnt the first batch of toasted crostini! Nearly set all the smoke alarms off... I know that's not quite setting the oven on fire, but it could have been! Hope it was all ok in the end! :)

  8. Wow that coat is amazing, so detailed and the fit is perfect! I'm having a super busy week too but I wish you lots of success. Thanks for stopping by my blog, now that I've discovered yours, I'm pretty sure you'll see much of me around!

    Cee. ♥
