Life update


Hello long time no post! I'm not at all sorry for not writing a new post, I really needed some time off. I needed to find my voice again, I lost a senses of myself be a " blogger" everyone's lives looks so great from the outside looking in. I'm going to be 100% real with you, I didn't think I had anything to offer. Who wants my take on life and style? who wants to read my point of view? and who wants to see my wishlist? who this and who that, but then it came to me who cares! my voice is mine no one in this whole world is like me and i'm not like anyone else. I'm going to start where I can and I'll get better, I'll find my strengths instead of all my weakness. I want to create a places I can be 100% Miloveda no one else.  Here's to new begins and hopefully new changes and fun post to come.

P.s.  I changed the name of my blog again! I think it suites my coming of age and a life and style blog better so welcome to "Live Accordingly"  I will be doing a post about the name change later and I will also be re branding so please bare with me. Its a lot to take on..

Hey guys! I'm so sorry for the lack of post these past weeks. But I'll be honest I've been doubting myself lately and this blog is one of those thing's that I've been doubting/nit-picking big time. Like everyone else out there I'm my own worst criticize and this blog has become an idea that I have been criticizing more then every lately. Don't get me wrong I love blogging, but I have alot of great idea's in mind for this blog, I have better post ideas, link up's to join, collaborations in mind. Lets just say I have ideas coming out of my ears, this blog has turned into my baby and I want to make "LA" better and put out really great work. And that's why I haven't been around much I feel like what I'm putting out just isn't good enough, but that's about to change so if you can bear with me and all my craziness. I'm really trying to create a blog and a life that I'll be proud of. So this blog and my life to reflect all these changes. Are you excited, I know I'm!

Ok so here is the best part of the post my outfit. Like I said I'm finding style this year and its starting to take shape hints this little post, ok first thing first my name is Miloveda and I'm in love with the color black! their's is a small part of me who's a goth..yes you heard right goth! and I had to let the her come out and this is the outfit she picked. So here you go my take on being a goth...#gothrealness right? what do you guys think?

30 X 30 closet remix challenge ( Day 1)



Yellow shirt/ thifted Ralph Lauren (classic white shirt), Camo shirt /cotton on (old),(similar)
Pants/ Forever 21 (want), Shoes /Pacsun (old),( Better pair!)

Hey guys! I'm so happy to be posting a style look again, I haven't posted one of these in forever. Mainly because I have been so uninspired with my closet lately, So whats does a girl do in this situation? well I got on tumblr and pinterest for my inspiration fix's. And after an hour of strolling through both sites and finally seeing the light, I ran to my closet and picked out all my favorite pieces and told myself I had to do the 30 x 30 closet remix challenge to get myself out of this uninspired funk that I've fallen into. And this is the first outfit I came up with! I know its looks simple but that's what makes this outfit so great. It has just a touch of menswear with the camo top and the loose bit fitted pants. In my last post I talked about my love of menswear and how women who dress with classic masculine touches just ooze sex appeal and I have to say this was probably the most comfortable outfit I've ever worn. I felt so effortless and cool with just a hint sexiness all at the same time. I'm glad I picked this outfit to start off the challenge, I also excited to see what other outfits I can come up with!! I can't wait to share more with you guys. Hope you guys enjoyed this this post, until next time.

Finding my personal style..








1 // 2 //3 // 4 // 5 //6

Hey guys if you read my last post then you know that this year I plan to work on redefining my personal style, I want to learn to dress my body type better, and really live by the phase "quality over quantity". I don't know about you guys but I swoon over a well dressed man, tailored suites, bow ties, man bags the whole nine. Is there anything better then a well dressed women with classic masculine touches? No! I have been stalking pinterest for style inspiration and found the jackpot! I don't know about you but I love women who can pull off menswear but still oozes sex appeal! two words boyish charm, When I was younger I used to be some what of a tomboy but quickly grew out of it because boys don't like girls who dress and act like boys! but I've never stopped loving menswear, I drooled over well fitting blazers, classic crisp white shirts, the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans and a brown pair of oxfords. I have been in love with the tomboy chic style for far too long, enough is enough! this years I plan to stalk pinterest, read GQ for all of my latest menswear inspiration and styling tips, I plan to invest in some much need closet/menswear basics, find a tailor ( because I'm built like a little boy and I need things taken in), try on as much clothes as humanly possible ( I can never find the right fit), play around with styling and create a closet I'll be happy with five years from now, so there you have it. My plan for redefining my personal style this year, I'm so excited and ready to go after this goal of mine and I plan to take you guys along for the ride by using the  hashtag #Meldoesmenswear on all my social media and feel free to tell me all about your personal style goals as well this year.

A shirt as a dress?




shirt: cotton on (similar in jacket form)| dress: thrift store ( similar)| belt: target (similar)| boots: target (similar)| necklace & earrings : thrift store & charlotte russe

Hey! lets face it I'm short! How short you ask? about '5'0 but I lie and say that  I'm '5'1. Whats the  difference you ask? it's not a big difference at all I just really like the sound of '5'1 better. If your going to lie, Lie about your age, your height, and your weight (well ask any woman).  the truth is all short women  secretly wish they were taller.  I would be lying is I said that I love being short all the time, It's a pain when you can't see above others and sometime people think I'm a kid but the truth is if I was taller I wouldn't be able to wear my shirt as dress like I'm doing here. Don't worry guys I'm wearing a dress underneath lol, I'm short not crazy and even though I'm short I still feel really uncomfortable out in public if my clothes are too short, Is that just me? But let me ask this question is your could change your height would you? I don't think I would now but five years ago I would have.

Blogger Spotlight! Chelsea & The City






Hi guys I'm back with another blogger spotlight! lets get down to the basics shall we? Her name is Chelsea and she is the writer behind one of my new favorite Life + Style blog's "Chelsea & The City" where she writes and documents her life with her "little family" and her personal style. Speaking about personal style! isn't she stylish?? If you've been along time reader of Style Outlaw then you guys know I'm a huge fan of the simple and effortless style and that's how Chelsea dresses "in my humble option". She has a very classic style with a twist, she always adds a little something different to each outfit. And lets not forget little Miss Lorelai, who is just the cutest plus she has the best style! So about a month ago I emailed Chelsea and asked her a few questions about blogging and about herself and her blog. But before we get into the Q+A here are some facts about her.

Fun Facts
-She's a huge fan of J crew ( but I mean who isn't)
-She loves the Gilmore Girls
-Loves prints ( But pot a dots are her favorite)
-She loves anything gold
-Long walks, loves spending time with Lorelai and Mr. Jackson
-And making Lists

 Q &A with Chelsea & The City

1.How do you describe your style?
I would describe my style as 'ever-evolving'. Lately I've been gravitating towards preppier pieces and embracing color & pattern. There's always room to grow and change your image, that's what I love about fashion!


2.What are some of your closet staples?
Statement necklaces, pointed-toe heels, black and white stripes and dark-wash skinnies are all staple pieces in my wardrobe. And leather leggings! Leather leggings are the perfect solution for chasing a toddler and looking chic at the same time.


3.Who are your style icons and How have they inspired you?
I'm most inspired by other bloggers! Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific, Rachel Parcell from The Pink Peonies and Emily Jackson of Ivory Lane are all daily reads and major style inspirations. I relate most to their style because (unlike celebrity looks) I can actually replicate what I see. Olivia Palermo is fabulous at mixing designer pieces with affordable fashion and I'm obsessed with her style!


4.Who or What inspired you to start a blog?
I started my blog almost 2 years ago, when my daughter was still a newborn, as an outlet to channel all of the creative energy that was building up while I was transitioning into being a stay-at-home mom. I love that Chelsea & The City has turned into a space where I can share everything that strikes my fancy!


5.How has blogging changed your life?
Blogging has allowed me to really honor myself and explore what truly makes me happy. There's a momentum of positivity in my life that's a direct result from spending each day discovering what I love. There's a quote about doing what you love meaning never having to work a day in your life and blogging is something I really love doing.


6.How did you come up with your blog name?
'Chelsea & The City' was more of a gut feeling than a long process to figure out a name. It popped into my head the first time I thought about trying my hand at blogging. The 'Chelsea' part is obviously my name and '& The City' probably comes from my love of Sex and The City. It's funny, as I spend more time recapping each day on my laptop I feel more and more like Carrie Bradshaw!


7. Do you think it's better to have style or be fashionable?
I think "style" is something innate. Whether or not it's what's in fashion at the time, every person has their own style. Discovering what makes you feel and look your best, or your personal style journey, is so much more rewarding and fun than following what designers or magazine editors dictate as "fashionable". This is why I never introduce Chelsea & The City as a 'fashion blog'. I'm definitely a style blogger.


8.Do you have any advice for new bloggers?
Although I consider myself a fairly new blogger (I've only been posting consistently and interacting with my readers since New Years), it's important to know and live your brand. Sit down and really decide what you want for your blog, what you love, what appeals to you visually and then embrace it. The other thing I would urge you to do is really get involved and interact with your readers! Whether you have 10,000 readers or 10, take the time to reply to every comment and let them know how grateful you are for the support. 9 times out of 10 it's the people that I see commenting everyday that keep me going and inspired to blog!  


p.s. I really had a great time talking to Chelsea and I want to thank her for emailing me back and answering my questions and being so nice.I hope you guys enjoyed this post and go check her out on instagram  and on chelseaandthecity go follow her blog! I promise you won't be disappointed.

Define?




 dress: cotton on (similar)| shirt: thrift store| belt: thrift store| boots: target (similar)| bag: thrift store(similar)

Hey, guys I had planned to post this outfit for Friday but didn't get around to it. Why? I have no idea! If you've been reading style outlaw for a while you may or may not notice that my style is kinda all over the places, I mean can anyone really define their personal style?? can you even define personal style at all?? but before I go any further let me give you a little back story....I went to an interview a couple weeks ago and one of the questions I was asked was to define my style. I think I gave her a crazy look because this was a tough question to answer. I mean I think of my self or should I say style like a math formula you can't really define it but you can break it down. So let me break it down for the world (lol) Think of Solange's love of bold and daring 90's prints now add some Nicole Richie's cool yet easy boho feel and slap all that with some of Adam Levine's cool, laid back rocker vibes with a dash of whatever I'm feeling that day. See I don't think personal style should be defined at all we are who we are and that's that. So tell me what do you guys think can you define your own personal style or is it just me?

 dress: cotton on (similar)| blazer: forever 21 old (similar)| bag: thrift store (I like this one)| earrings:body shop super old| necklace and bracelet: thrift store

Hi guys I'm here with a the look of the day, to explain this day/outfit would only lead me to a rant..long store short I hate when my time get's wasted. ugh, but what can you do? The best part of this day was I got to spend time with one of my best friend. we've got to talking about some major life changing decisions happing this up coming year for the both of us ( more to come on some of my decisions soon) I'm so glad I got to spend time with her because I've missed her a lot. After much needed best friend time I came home me and had some sister time and planed out the rest of the week. Ok so enough talk about me lets talk about this outfit, So let talk about this outfit I'm in love with the color black ( I own way too much of it) and this dress has to be the most comfortable thing I own, it's super simple and affordable (it was $5). But I wanted to add a little sometime more so I threw on this cute little color blocked blazer and dressed it up a bit, it added an instant chicness. I also added some gold pieces and a bright bag and I love a dark lipstick.Why not?? So what is you favorite tips and tricks to make something simple and comfortable to a whole other level?? p.s. I'm still trying to find better places to take pictures.

Floral Party





hat: cotton on (similar)|shirt: thrift store (similar)| dress:gift:wore as a skirt (similar)|belt: thrift store| booties: target (similar)


Hi guys, If your anything like me then your in love with warm weather, blue sky, and fresh air, growing up in  Florida I'm to use to hot and humid days and sticky nights. but  I'm thankful for days like today cool with a nice breezy it was just to beautiful outside so whats a girl to do? well I throw on my favorite floral outfit and paraded around taking pictures and drinking cold lemon water with my best friend lol. In my mind sometimes  the best way to wear floral is to add more floral and that's exactly what I did. if you been reading my blog for a while now you know I have a really unhealthy love for floral. I think it's because I love the 90's so much and in my mind the 90's was revolutionary right? what do you think?. I mean style or should I say personal style back then was amazing right?? So anytime I see anything floral I have to have it lol so why not throw on some floral and have a party!

What do you think about my 90's floral party and how would you have styled this look??
 p.s. I did use that necklace as a belt lol ( I'm just too cool for school )
