Instagram ootd posts Oct 5-9

My ootd posts from October 5-9

Monday Look of the Day

Make a Faith Statement tee with the Conqueror necklace by Precious Heart Shop paired with an animal print pencil skirt from Express.  My skirt is a few years old so I could not find the same style, but graphic tees and tanks look amazing with all pencil skirts, don't be afraid to mix a bold pattern or colorful pattern with your graphic tees for a stylish and professional look.

You can find my tee and necklace at:

My arm candy is Alex and Ani heart beaded bangle, love charm bracelet and an Adam Rabbit Jewelry custom teal quartz bangle. 

My custom teal bracelet was ordered from:

Tuesday casual ootd: graphic tee by Everfitte and boyfriend denim shorts by Buckle. 

My Graphic tee can be found below along with many other unique and stylish graphic tees and tanks for affordable prices:

My arm candy is my Lokai collection. Classic, with limited edition Blue, Wild and the brand new Pink for breast cancer awareness month. 

Wednesday was a paisley and proem kind of day. Wearing an old top I have with some ruffle and studs from Tory Burch I believe many many moons ago, Old Navy boyfriend jeans and a solid tank from Target. My gorgeous necklace is made by BlackBlackMoon and was purchased off the eBay store below, you can find this necklace and more items by the same designer on this site.  If you mention my blog she will be happy to give you a discount on your order.  Just tell her Melissa from DLiteful Trends sent you, or you saw her amazing items on my blog.

Hate mirror shots but had to try on the jeans sent to me by Silver Jeans Co for their new dare to flare campaign for fall. Can't wait to style these with lots of fun fall pieces. Love how they fit and the flare is just right, has that vintage 70's vibe. You can find a pair at 

Love my handmade bracelet by Gypsyhavenjewel on Instagram and Etsy, she is such a kind soul and talented lady.  Be sure to check out her lovely Instagram feed and Etsy store.

My necklace is by black black moon and you can purchase your own from my friend Pam at shop link, a mention my blog for a discount off her store. 

My fall hair color, got this done back in June and love it so keeping it for the fall. Love the orange ombré with my blonde natural color with highlights. Pravana hair color and Olaplex three step treatment is what keeps my hair looking amazing. Today wore a loose braid with some curled shorter, front pieces for an easy out the door look. Tomorrow getting my color touched up for my cruise in less then three weeks will be sure to take some pics to add. 

As promised pics of my hair:


I only did a touch up on my roots or regrowth of the blonde the coral is still the same. Will be touching that up when I get back from my cruise. I actually like how it looks now that some of the color has faded a little. 

Sunglasses are some older Tory Burch glasses I got a few years ago for my birthday. 

Tee is Pam&Gela, I scored it off eBay for under $25 you can find them on their website,  Kimono is a black floral kimono from Fashion Junkee and jeans are boyfriend style by Silver Jeans. Purse is a black fringe Boho bag from Bohemian Vibe boutique.

My shoes I got in April on clearance at Walmart, they are Toms inspired camouflage sneakers I paid $5.99 for, and they are so comfortable.  I actually think they are more comfy then my real Toms but don't tell anyone I said that lol.

Hope you all enjoy my week of outfits, I was pretty laid back this week but my style is either graphic tops and jeans, or skirts, then some gypsy boho style skirts, kimonos and dresses.  I have lots of cute fall styles coming soon.  It is still in the 90's here so I have not gotten to shoot the sweaters and boots I wanted to, but will be wearing some shorter length dresses with lighter weight sweaters in the next couple of weeks with ankle boots, because I am really wanting to show off some amazing pieces I have found online for some incredible deals.  I love my trapeze dresses, Free People sweaters and some amazing knee height socks for winter.  Can't wait to share, till then have a fabulous weekend.  Tomorrow is the FSU vs UM game, so go Seminoles.  Hoping my Noles win tomorrow night, huge in state rivalry game and we usually go to this game but it's in Tallahassee this year and we could not make it, a little sad but I will be home cheering them on.  Thank you for passing by and thank you to everyone for all your support this week, makes me smile to see everyone passing by and checking out my posts.  Make sure to leave comments and let me know what you think of the new layout, links, and posts.  XOXO  

Quickly if you saw my post last week or the end of the previous week about the boho and rocker looks inspired from Pinterest posts, I got my trapeze Free People inspired dress in for $8.99 and styled it for now with a $9.98 sweater from Walmart tied to the side using a Nita Angeletti cuff and scarf. My Free people crochet back blue gray sweater should arrive any day along with another similar dress for another look. 

Link is on previous post to eBay shop that carries these in multi colors for $8.99.

Was excited to find these cute sweaters at Walmart for under $10 in many stylish colors for fall and winter.  Paired it with my Precious Hearts Designs necklace which matches amazing. 

Used Nita's infinity scarf and then the scarf cuff I used to tie up the side. Can't wait to wear this look with tall knee high socks and boots. Enjoy and just wanted to sneak this in quick in case you missed my prior post the link is;

Nita Angeletti Designs Fall Scarf and Boot Cuffs

Nita Angeletti Fall Designs

Today my package from the amazing and talented Nita Angeletti arrived today. I am going to be doing a full post of these items styled with my wardrobe but loved everything so much had to show off. 

I love the doll she made for me so cute. She is such a kind and sweet soul. She is also so talented and creative. She attended Juilliard and has done so many amazing things. I can't wait to do my blog feature on her she really is such an amazing woman who is such an inspiration. 

Can't wait to wear these gorgeous boot cuffs with my fall and winter wardrobe. I will have a link at the bottom where you can purchase all these items. The shop is also linked in my prior post on Nita and in my favorite shops. I love the gray with plaid accent and red trim. Going to look great with all my gray fall fashion picks and of course plaids. 

Excited to wear these super stylish boot cuffs with many outfit this fall and winter also. Love the fringe and pearl accent buttons. 

I had a hard time deciding what color scarf to order, they are all gorgeous but wanted to get one I could wear a lot to be able to feature her designs as much as I could and this color is perfect. It's a blend of cream and gray then has her signature cuff with gray, black and a coral peach tone. The cuff can be removed and worn on your wrist or left on as an added accessory to this lovely infinity style scarf. 

I love how unique all the items are and that they are all handmade by Nita. She puts a lot of time, quality and love into all of her designs. If you think these are fabulous be sure to head over to my friend Pam's eBay store in the link below to see more of Nita's creations. She makes more then cuffs and scarves. She truly is so talented and I am excited to feature her coming soon to my blog.

 Hope you enjoy her fashionable pieces as much as I do. Xoxo

My week of ootd posts

My Week of Fashion OOTD posts...

Here are some of my #ootd posts from IG and Twitter.  

I found these cute tunic babydoll dresses last fall and ordered a tan one, it arrived damaged so the owner of the eBay shop was kind enough to let me keep the damage one, which I sewed the seam that was undone, and she sent me this one to replace for free.  Love when a store has amazing customer service and goes above everything to make sure their customer is satisfied.  I could not find an exact match but below found a close one in navy.  If you search Umgee Babydoll Tunic lots of styles will pop up and all different prices.

Similar design in Navy 

I happened to get very lucky one day when walking the shopping plaza by my house and one of the little boutiques was having a sidewalk sale, I found my white crochet and fringe detail vest marked down for $7.99.  I tried to find a good bargain deal but had a hard time even finding this style vest.  Right now the fringe all over vests are trending, which I ordered one while searching I found for under $25 on eBay.  I saw they were trending and selling for over $35 up to $50 so grabbed one that was $22 with shipping.  Love it.


My sandals are knee high MIA black gladiators.  I had a gift certificate I won for PacSun so I scooped up two pairs of these and some feather print Converse, along with a few cute graphic tees and tanks.  I found links for the same sandals below in both brown and black.  I have a similar dress to the one above in tan and brown with a red, blue multi colored Navajo style print on the front chest area that look amazing with the brown sandals or brown boots. 

My necklace I was able to find almost the exact same one at below

Last up my bracelet, purchased from my local Forever 21 store.  As you know their stock sells out fast and is always changing.  I could not find the same exact one, mine is a stretchy silver turkish looking bracelet with little bells on the outside.  I found this pretty etched silver bangle 

My wrist party is Alex and Ani bangles, I have a retired feather bangle, the charm feather, buddha charm, monopoly dog, and pineapple charm.  I also am wearing one of my PuraVida Bracelets for a splash of color.  Be sure to check out PuraVida and use my code MelissaSep10 for a discount when checking out.  They are a great company donating money to many charities and proceeds from the sales of all the items helps employ local Costa Rican Artisans.

    More Karma Less Drama tee by LeMotto.  Black and white pencil skirt from Forever 21, statement necklace for Walmart for $5, Rock & Republic heels ( best heels ever so comfortable), Alex and Ani charm bangle and heart beaded stretch bracelet, mixed with some gold plain bangles and my Juicy Couture Locket and Key bracelet that was a gift from my mom.


My gorgeous necklace is a pink agate slice from Adam Rabbit Jewelry on Etsy.  She had a $10 mystery necklace sale where you would receive a mystery necklace valued up to $30.  I have many pieces by her and love them all, this one is no exception it is beautiful.  She does not stock this exact same necklace in her shop but one of my favorite stores does have the same stone but with gold chain 

My tee shirt was a special order from Girl Monday Apparel on Etsy.  They have lots of fun and humorous sayings on many styles of tees and tanks, we all know I love graphic tees and tanks.  I have found so many amazing shops that I love.

My BillaBong Women's tank is sold out at, I did find them in stock in all sizes below

My jeans are Jcrew Boyfriend jeans and I have several pairs, they are one of favorite fit and style jeans I own, the distressing is just right and they fit amazing.  Also they are made of the softest denim. I do not put these in the dryer, they are washed on delicate or my steam cleaning setting then hung to dry.  Grab them while they still have some left.  I got them on sale every time and just grabbed a last pair before they are all gone.  Size down one size for good fit.

Use my code MelissaSep10 for 25% discount on all PuraVida orders

I'm a sweet disaster tank, feather kimono with pom pom trim, Hollister boyfriend jeans and Lacey Ryan necklace. Details below for items.

My tee is from Pony Show in Nashville, they have an Etsy store and I have to say all their graphic tees and tanks rock.  Love this store and love all their other vintage items also.  Great find for sure.  

or some that have not read this in my previous posts, I am a Silver Jeans Co Ambassador and love this brand.  My first pair of jeans they sent me when becoming an ambassador for their brand we're these amazing Boyfriends jeans I had wanted to order for a few months.  I have over 20 pairs of Silver Jeans and the only style I didn't own were the boyfriend style.  These are now one of my favorite go to pairs of jeans whether cropped or worn ankle length.  I love them with everything I wear them with.  Check the out in the link below.

My purse is my everyday bag, I got it from the Christmas in July 50% off sale at Bohemian Vibe Boutique.  It is currently sold out and I am looking for others that are comparable.  They did have a brown in stock if you want to check the link below.  It is an amazing bag and I get compliments every day, people always think it was way more expensive.  I paid $30 for it retails for $60, best $30 I ever spent lol.  I have used it daily unless I need a brown bag or something smaller.  It comes with a wristlet style pouch that is attached to one of the straps, then has fringe detail on the sides love love love.  

Above tee is also from Pony Show same link as above...

My amazing shoes from Sophie May Shop in Utah.

Gypsy soul floral tee and Not all who wander tee in blue from Boho Circus.  You can find both tees at 

Gypsy Soul tee by Boho Circus with a Lace kimono from PacSun, Gunne vintage 70's floral skirt and Turkish coin necklace I got off Ebay for under $10.

Above link for the Gypsy Soul tee is for a Unisex Medium please be sure to get your correct size.

My kimono is sold out couldn't find but you can find many styles similar on eBay.

I am the queen of finding items that are really on trend or hot selling items for less.  I saw these necklaces two years ago in a high end catalog for $75-95 and matching bracelet was $50-65.  I got the necklace and bracelet for $10 with shipping.  They are made very well, the material is thick and I have owned my necklace for over a year and worn it many times nothing has broken or happened.  My bracelet I have had a couple months less than the necklace and same thing both are solid well made pieces, very heavy.  Love them and can't imagine anyone who paid the high end price because these really look identical.

Not all who wander tee, Boho Circus

Also available in other sizes and colors, this link is for the unisex Medium.  

Necklace is from one of my favorite Etsy Jewelry shops, Fawning in love.  It was a one time item but she does have similar items and lots of other great pieces everyone should check out.  Make sure to pass by her shop and show some love.

Hope you enjoyed my week of fashion and hope the links help you find the items I wore that you like, trying to make it easier for everyone who reads the blog.  

My boots arrived...

Mi.iM Urban 04

Today I received the boots I blogged about last week, and I love them. They are everything I had hoped for and more. I found these hot strappy ankle boots that looks exactly like the popular Free People ankle boots on Amazon. The name of the shop is SophieMay you can find the shop on Instagram @shopsophiemay. It's a boutique based out of Utah and they have so many awesome styles of clothes, accessories and of course shoes. You really can't beat these boots for the price considering the Free People version cost almost $200 and these are under $50. 

I got the gray and at the time they only had a size 7.5 or I would have had to order a 9 in the beige or the navy they had all sizes in at different shops. I looked all over the internet once I found these look a like style boots for my size, I usually am a 7.5-9 depending on the style and cut but with boots I almost always size up because I usually wear socks sometimes thick socks but with ankle boots I usually don't wear socks. If I do wear socks they are very thin. I crossed my fingers and double checked the size chart which after measuring seemed like they would fit perfect. Today they arrived and I was so over the moon to try them on to find out they fit perfectly. I don't think a larger size would work honestly these are perfection. The quality is amazing and they look identical to the higher end ones you can't tell the difference really at all. I got the gray which is almost a dark brownish gray and can really match with almost everything. I had them on with my joggers I slept in and was walking around the house in them. Even wore them with my skirt today because I didn't want to take then off. They have a felt almost suede like material for the inside sole and feel so nice without socks. Here are some quick photos of them on after they arrived today. 



If you can get your hands on a pair of these ankle boots don't miss out. I have had a hard time finding the other colors, navy is available on many sites in all sizes and the gray, which is the color I have seem to be easier to find but only a few sizes available. Brown and beige or very hard to find. I found a size 9 on Zulily last week but sold out now. I have found a few eBay sellers that say they will have new stock in the next week or two. I am hoping to get the lighter beige color but not going to be to worried if I can't since I just got the fringe gray boots, then the brown chunky heel side fringe boots from Maurices. I am good on boots, but I really love this style and think they look good with everything. I don't think they are going to be going out of style anytime soon, maybe if I do find the tan or beige I will order them since the quality really is good and for the price you can't go wrong, enjoy and hope you find a pair also. 

Happy bargain shoe shopping xoxo ✌️❤️
