Living in Florida, I am always searching for clothes that are easy to wear and work from brunch to the beach.  While looking for cute pieces for my most recent trip to Destin, I came across the most amazing brand full of colorful dresses and tops that I just couldn’t pass up!

MellyM is made in the USA and I love all of their cute styles and prints.  MellyM is SO amazing that they are offering one Mikaela J follower a $200 gift certificate! Check out my Instagram for details and make sure to visit MellyM to see all of their adorable and fun pieces!


Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo

Tassels on Tassels

Dress / Earrings / Shoes (Old but Similar) / Clutch (Old but Love this One)

It’s no secret I have been loving the tassel trend and when I saw this cute dress I knew I had to have it.  The tassel trim is so cute and I love the preppy striped print.

The shoes are a Nordstrom Rack find but I love the ones I linked above! I don’t wear heels often since I am always chasing children around, but when I do the chunky heel is the way to go.  They add so much height but are so much more comfortable!

Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo

Under $25 Summer Wish List

Blue and White Cover-Up / Yellow Maxi / Pink Off the Shoulder Dress / Palm Leaf Romper / Pom Pom Tote / Blue and White Tassel Dress

Oh. My. Gosh.  I am loving these summer items and they are all under $25! Ya’ll know I love Lilly and most of my shopping budget goes to Lilly pieces, however I love getting some fun and trendy items for each season.  I love all the color in these pieces and the tassels and pom poms.  Where is your favorite place to get summer items on a budget?

Hello Summer!

Romper / Shoes / Earrings / Clutch (Old but Similar) / Sunglasses / Bracelets

Happy summer!! But even better, Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day!! I am sure it is very obvious that I love Lilly Pulitzer and nothing goes together better than summer and the bright colors of Lilly.  I absolutely love the colors in this romper – especially the orange, which I don’t have a lot of in my closet.  Also, my favorite thing about this romper is the forgiving top.  It flows so nicely and will be especially awesome after indulging in too much of my favorite summer treat – ice cream!

So cheers to summer! I would love to see if you are rocking your favorite Lilly today!

Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo

Summertime Blues

Dress / Shoes / Purse / Sunglasses / Earrings (Similar) / Bracelets

I am sure it is so painfully obvious that I am loving the off-the-shoulder trend for spring and summer! I have always been self-conscious about showing my arms so for me, it is a way to show a little bit of skin for summer but not fully expose the arms.  This dress is SO comfortable.  It is really forgiving and I love that it can be paired with red for the cutest July 4th look!

I also just picked up a new pair of Jacks and I am loving the white paired with the metallic!

Thanks so much and I will see you next time! xoxo
