MCLV Style: IFBCON Day One

I’ve been beyond excited for this trip to New York City for weeks – Seeing my best friend, attending IFBCON, and spending time in NYC which one of my top three favorite cities.

IFBCON was everything that I was hoping it would be – A fun, fashionable, engaging event that left me inspired and motivated, and absolutely determined to move to New York! I met some lovely ladies who I’m looking forward to staying in touch with and I’m looking forward to sharing their blogs with you in the future.

With my nervous excitement running the show I decided that I couldn’t go wrong with a simple black and white look with some fun silver embellishments and a killer pop of color. I love the idea of leather shorts but muggy NYC is not the time to try them out so I went with these faux leather trimmed shorts paired with an embellished white Zara top and a metallic tweed open blazer.

Stay tuned for some great style shots of the amazing fashion bloggers that I met at the conference this week – The looks that they put together were outstanding and the styles totally diverse.

Do you have a go-to style or a specific color combination that you like to pair together when you want to look great? Do you prefer to air on the side of overdressed or under-dressed?

MCLV Style: Vacation Maxi

Did you enjoy the first post from the new Styling 101 series that I posted on Tuesday? It was a lot of fun to style and photograph so I hope it got you in the mood for some yacht-chic gear for America’s Cup!

With this week – and Summer – on the verge of being over I thought today would be a good day for some sun worshipping fashion. So welcome to another MCLV Style post where we will be discussing vacations. Primarily because I refuse to let go of Summer.

I wish that these shots had been taken on a tropical island somewhere with waves crashing nearby and umbrella drinks chilling just out of reach instead of in my “backyard.” I use sarcastic quote marks because I live in San Francisco. Land of small kitchens and no grass.  Le sigh. Clearly someone is in desperate need of a vacation, and luckily for this someone, I’m heading to New York City this weekend for the much anticipated IFBCON.

What do you like to wear when you’re on vacation? Obviously it depends on the destination, but nothing says tropical vacation to me more than a maxi, what about you?
