It’s back to school time for me! For those of you who don’t know, when I’m not soaking up the sun in Miami I go to school in Providence, Rhode Island. (Huge difference, I know!) It was a little bit of a culture shock when I got here. For example, in Rhode Island we shake hands when we meet people…not touch cheeks/air kiss! When I find someone from Miami though, instinct kicks in…it’s kinda weirdly natural and I don’t even have to think about it.

Yesterday, I wore my Wildfox Couture bikini as a crop top. It’s the perfect swimsuit to wear out of context because of it’s cut.I also put on my ‘Alexa’ wedges for photo purposes, but if you follow me on Instagram (@MelaniePatterson_!) you’ll have seen that I’m actually stuck wearing a knee brace and [relatively] flat shoes. (And taking huge pills! Ugh.)

Wearing: Wildfox Couture Solid Top, thrifted/DIY studded Levi’s shorts (similar), American Apparel chiffon shawl cardigan, Jeffrey Campbell ‘Alexa’ wedges (similar hi-top version).

I’m seriously obsessing over the chiffon cardigan! It’s gorgeous! Oh and what happened to your knee? Hope it’s better soon :)

Thank you! I picked it up for 50% off when American Apparel RI was closing last spring. And I think I have a torn meniscus so I’m going without heels for a little while…boo! Hoping I won’t need surgery, but we’ll see. Thanks for the well wishes! xoxo
