I want to thank all of my amazing friends and family for making my birthday a spectacular one. A family style dinner at Covo Trattoria turned into amazing memories (& drinks!) over chocolate covered Oreos and chinola soufflé with ingredients straight from the Dominican Republic. DE-LISH…

And as for my outfit…I’ve never felt more comfortable on a birthday. I’ve only ever given myself one rule: NEVER WEAR BLACK. Other than that, anything is free game as long as I’m comfy and I feel absolutely gorgeous. This year I went for something Sophia Loren-esque. If you don’t know who she is, imagine the epitome of Italian glam in the 1960′s. She’s one of my ultimate style icons so pairing this A-line skirt and top was a given. Pairing it with these bold geometric earrings gave it the perfect Mel touch. That and my natural ringlets.  

I am super grateful for having had such an amazing weekend. Until June 6th, 2016…
