We've Moved!

Miss Me?

Don't worry I haven't really gone anywhere. I have just moved to a new location. If you have found yourself missing Mavelle style's blog posts then head on over to our new home Mavellestyle.com to see all of my latest posts. In fact if you didn't know about the great blog migration then chances are you probably missed my 8-Days of Holiday Gift Guides. If you want to see my suggested gift ideas for her, for him, for the kids, under $100, under $50, and even stocking stuffer and animal lover ideas then head on over. 

Holiday Gift Ideas for him and her and gift ideas for the kids

Why the move you ask? Well, for one, the new site is a lot easier for all of you to navigate and to read all of my blog posts on your phones. That is a huge bonus. And two, as much as I have loved using Blogger for the past 3 years it just felt like it was time for me to "grow-up." 

Blogger is a great platform when you are getting started (in fact I am going to kind of miss it because it was so easy to use, behind the scenes, oh and it is free) but now that Mavelle is growing my website and hosting capabilities and a whole lot of other behind the scene boring stuff needed to grow too. 

So, thank you for following and please continue to follow Mavelle style just do so over here -> -> -> Mavellestyle.com and be sure to continue following me on Bloglovin in order to receive all my blog posts straight to your email. You can sign up and follow on Blogloving right here! For those of you already following through Bloglovin I apologize but you will have to refollow so that you are following the correct blog. It sounds harder than it is...trust me. Try it. 

You can also follow Mavelle style on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. I am everywhere...I am even in your dreams. Not really...that go weird fast. My point is that if you like my style, find my posts interesting, entertaining and even (hopefully) inspiring then there are plenty of ways for you to be following me but this, right here, where you are reading this blog post is not going to be one of those ways anymore.

So, one more time...if you want to continue being "friends" then please follow me over at Mavellestyle.com or sign up for my post to come straight to your email right here!

Thank you, lovies. I appreciate all of your continued support more than you will ever know.

Happy Anniversary Mavelle!

I am putting on my party dress and celebrating! 
Three years ago I decided to start a little thing called a blog. I was inspired by all the bloggers I was following and continue to be inspired by today as well as seeking a creative outlet.

I have always wanted to be a writer and the idea channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw was kind of exciting. I guess if I was really channeling my inner Carrie I'd write about the search for love but considering I was a newlywed when I started Mavelle Style I had already landed my "Big" so fashion it was. Plus, I am kind of obsessed with fashion so it was a natural decision that style would be the primary focus of my blog.

Blanket Wraps for the Win!

I have said it before and I will say it again...
...if wearing a blanket is wrong I don't want to be right, and you probably shouldn't want to be right either.

ShopBop.com Sale!

So I am a little late to the game here but considering this sale only lasts 3 days it isn't hard to be late.

Hats for Fall are an Absolute MUST!

Question...is there such thing as owning too many hats?
Don't tell me...I am not sure I can handle the answer.
It is no secret that I am a HUGE lover of hats. Really any type of head piece is high on my list...from flower crowns to baseball caps, I am a fan. I have been wearing hats as long as I can remember...and then some.

Fall + Boots = Love

I know I have told you all this before but I will say it again, and probably again after that...I LOVE FALL FASHION!
Boots are one of the main reasons I love fall fashion...although to be quite honest I don't necessarily wait until fall to wear boots. Some styles can be worn all season long, like peep-toe booties.

Fall In Love With Plaid Maxi Tunics!

It is officially fall, y'all and I am one happy fashion blogger! 

Why am I so happy? Because I LOVE fall fashion. The sweaters, the boots, the scarves and all that flannel and plaid has got me all giddy inside. Speaking of giddy and things I love...I am kind of obsessed with this Treasure & Bond drapey plaid maxi tunic

Suede Shorts For Fall

As we transition into fall we will still have some really hot summer-like days and that is when suede shorts, in the perfect fall color, come into play.

Working From Home as a Blogger / Entrepreneur

Mavelle Media Marketing Public Relations lLifestyle Blogger Home Office

As most of you already know I work from home which in my opinion makes it even more crucial to have some sort of daily routine. Otherwise you may end up getting distracted with house chores. Or even worse, binge watching Netflix on a rainy day or at the beach on a sunny day. Not going to lie...I am guilty of all three. But 90% of the time I stick to a routine.

Getting Back Into The Gym!

I took a couple years off from working out...I am not even joking it was like a full two years (and then some) that I did not hit the trails running and definitely did not see the inside of a gym or yoga studio. But I am happy to report that I AM BACK or at least on my way back!
It has been a tough ride trying to get myself back into shape and I am not anywhere near where I was before going on my little hiatus but I am feeling good about myself regardless and I just keep going...that is all I can do right? Even if I never completely get back to where I was it just feels great to be exercising again and feeling healthier and having more energy.

Fringe Tops & Printed Pants For The Win!

I haven't quite decided yet...

Is this look Boho Chic? Resort Wear? Country Club Wife Attire? Summer Office Style? Weekend Chic? Vacation Casual? 

Whatever style you decide this look is there is no denying that it is versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down to fit your lifestyle which is why it fits perfectly into my sometimes boho, occasionally office attire, but usually casual and every now and then at the country club lifestyle.

Ahi Tuna Poke

If there is Tuna Poke on the menu I am ordering it. This dish is just one of those things that I have to have and crave as soon as I see that it's available.

The best part about this recipe is that it is actually super easy to make. Once of course you find all the needed ingredients which for me is at least two stops. I cannot promise you that it is cheap though...that is just what happens when you eat fresh fish...but it is totally worth it to splurge on every now and then.

All In One & One For All! My love affair with jumpers!

I am going all in for jumpsuits & rompers! What about you?

Jumpsuits are stinkin' adorable and let's not forget that they can also be super sexy, comfy & casual or even fancy. The list of how versatile jumpsuits are goes on and on. So much so that I am 100% willing to look past the fact that going to the bathroom is not as easy as it is in...I don't know...let's say, pretty much anything. But it's totally worth it you guys. Plus, there is a style for everyone. I am not even joking, this trend works for all the ladies out there...you just have to find the style works best for you.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Coming to an End!

Hey lovies...if you haven't taken advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and you want to (which I don't see why you wouldn't want to) you better hurry. Prices are going back up on August 8th which doesn't leave us much time. 
Since items have been flying off the shelves I went back through the sale and rounded up a ton of must-haves that are still in stock...or at least they were this morning when I was writing this post for y'all.

Calvin Klein Scarves for Summer

I have always been a lover of scarves no matter what the season. I seriously must have somewhere around 50 different scarves and of all styles. Infinity, blanket, necktie, silk, wool, fur, bandana...you name it I have it. A lot of my favorite scarves are from my grandma.

Lately I have completely fallen in love with silky scarves including this one from Calvin Klein.

Stripes & Fringe in Greece...Okay, it's Actually Carmel!

The Monte Verde Inn in Carmel-By-The-Sea had me feeling like I had somehow ended up in Greece. But this post isn't about that even if I could talk to you all day about the sweetness of Carmel-By-The-Sea and this little gem of a hotel. This post is about wearing stripes and fringe and feeling fabulous even in the most simple of outfits.

Wedding Guest Attire

Love is in the air...starting with this faux suede A-line dress!
I know that "wedding season" technically started 3-4 months ago but where I live our best weather starts now and so our "wedding season" is just ramping up. Plus, I have a long time girlfriend's wedding approaching  so I have wedding fashion on the brain.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Continues

You guys...I seriously can't stop shopping this fantastic sale. Well, actually adding to my wish-list since I don't have a Nordstrom Card. I am really impressed with my patience lately. I check my wish-list all the time to see what has already sold out and to add. It is crazy how fast these items are going.

For the Love of Shoes!

Shoes have the capability of making a statement...might as well make it a great one! 

I don't think it is any secret that I am a shoe-fanatic. I have a picture of the hubs' and my shoes, from our wedding, framed in our bedroom. My profile picture on Facebook is of shoes (while you're over there looking give us a follow ;-)) and hey, Cinderella is proof that a great pair of shoes can change your life...so with that said, why wouldn't you want to collect fab shoes?

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 10: Floral for Spring!

It just seems right to end the Spring Fashion Series with the one spring trend that has been making and probably always will make the list for spring and summer. You know the one...Florals!

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 9: Fringe, Fringe, Fringe!

Well, fringe is here to stay and I am not upset or surprised...are you?

I personally think this trend is so fun and I love how you can go big with it or subtly incorporate it into your wardrobe with a purse, your shoes or even jewelry.

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 8: Bold Gingham Plaid!

Gingham plaid patterns are not a new idea; in fact plaid as been considered an "it" pattern for a few seasons now. However, what made plaid stand out for Spring/Summer 2016 on the runway is how bold it has become.

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 7: Orange is the New Black!

Orange has always been a fun, vibrant color for the sunnier months of the year but is Orange really the New Black? Well, if fashion week is any indicator of what is in then I would have to say, "yes!"

The vivid hue is popping up everywhere and in every shade. From tangerine and yellow infused orange juice tones to rust and apricot and even peach there is an orange shade for everyone.

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 6: Giving The Cold Shoulder!

Everyone is giving the cold shoulder this spring and below is why I think you should too.

This spring trend falls under the dare-to-bare trend of cutouts but showing a little shoulder is the latest way to expose a little skin without sharing too much. After all, leaving something to the imagination is very sexy. The versatility of this trend is another reason I find it exciting and why I think it is showing up everywhere (other than it being simply awesome). You can bare your shoulders in a shirt, dress, jumpsuit, coat...you name it.

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 5: Latin Inspired

I have a question...Was every designer vacationing in South America when they found inspiration for their Spring/Summer 2016 lines? Or is this latest spring trend emphasizing the increasing Latin presence in North America? Whatever the reasons for this look to turn up so big on the runway I am not complaining... it is simply fabulous!

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 4: Shine Bright in Sequins!

Those of you who know me can probably imagine my excitement for this spring 2016 trend! I am a sequin girl through and through. At any given moment I might be wearing sequined pants or layering a sequined tank under a flannel. I even made my bridesmaids wear sequin dresses...they still love me...at least I hope they do ;-)

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 3: Be Bold in Stripes!

Let's talk about stripes for a moment. Although the pattern is nothing new it is far from tedious. Stripes made an appearance on pretty much every runway this year. From New York to Milan the bold pattern definitely left its mark.

Spring 2016 Fashion Series! Post 2: The Flat Mule!

The 90's are having a heavy comeback and so it shouldn't be of any surprise that the flat mule is making a comeback as well. The stylish slip-on showed up on dozens of runways during Spring 2016 Fashion Week and it was almost instantaneously that some of the top names in fashion blogging were spotted rockin' the new (yet old) shoe trend as well.
