Okay, lots of things.

I’m in this period where I’m trying to make everything in my life as efficient as possible. While wardrobe minimalism is beyond my grasp (I’m okay with that), I do want to make sure that I do actually wear everything in my closet because, well, what’s the point of owning them, otherwise? I bought this Motel crop top when I was in London using my store credit and it came out to like, dirt cheap. It’s such a clean piece, which is like everything else in my wardrobe, but I own only a couple of halters and none like this. I’m not sure why they get such a bad rap…I personally love them! Maybe it’s just because I like my shoulders, though. Anyway, Lily of Le Pretty Stellar inspired me to finally wear it because of this awesome halter-inclusive outfit she recently wore. (Her halter is much cooler than mine!)

I’ve also had this AA skirt for some time, but I hardly ever wear it and it’s never made it to the day of light that is Radical Darling. It’s the perfect little denim number that can be the basis of a simple, but statement-making outfit.

I wore this outfit for my best friend’s surprise 21st birthday party. It was a casual event, mostly her family and then some friends. BUT, her birthday week has yet to even really start. And, it’s Swim Week! More outfits to come all week long :)

Last picture included to show off my long hair, wheeeee! All natural, since February 2011! Also, blog title is referring to a Local Natives song but totally applies to this Miami humidity on my hair. Too vicious :\

Wee! Your hair is lovely. I’m all natural too, but I find it really difficult to deal with my hair on the daily so I wear a weave lol. Laziness. I also haven’t done the big chop. I love the chiffon button up and your blog’s new look.

Thank you, Ria! :) I actually never did a big chop…I just slowly cut off inch by inch. It’s totally not necessary!

Thank you, Jen! You’re too nice!

Thank you, Kelly! I haven’t heard from you in so long! Not sure why but your comments were going straight to my spam folder so I hope I haven’t been missing them all :(

Hey! I love love this skirt and am considering buying it! For reference, what size is yours? Thanks :)


Melanie January 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Hi Cecilia! Thanks for stopping by! I have really wide hips, so at 39″ I needed to get the medium. But it’s a bit loose on my waist, which is 25″. Hope this helps :)
