cropped pants & chokers

tank: aritzia // pants: madewell // heels: zara (old) // clutch: shopbop (sold out) // choker: aldo accessories // watch: michael kors 

So there are two things I can't stop wearing....
I guess the title of my post kinda gives it away but it's cropped pants and chokers. I mean, I've always been obsessed with cropped pants or culottes but chokers are a relatively new thing for me. They're really in right now but I only really took the plunge for Stampede a week or so ago and ever since then I can't stop! 
They're like the finishing touch to an outfit and surprisingly go with a lot. I hope you're totally ok with seeing me rock them in the next few posts ;) 

In other news, if you follow me on Snap (melanie.morais) you'd notice I had a post about my anxiety. I have since deleted it but I just wanted to thank everyone for their thoughtful private messages I was sent about it. I have always dealt with crazy anxiety my whole life but lately it's been pretty intense. All your  advice and thoughtful words have really helped! I'm thinking of doing a post in the future on how I deal with it. Not sure if it's something you'd lovely people would like to read but I feel like it would make me sound a bit more real you know? We all go through stuff at one point or another in our lives and it's good to know that we are not alone! 

Happy Monday!


  1. I love the choker trend and you've styled it so it looks very now. Nice work! Hugs on the anxiety front - it's amazing what our minds are capable of, so I hope yours can overcome this current state of intense worry. I'd tell you to get a dog (Charlie has made me so much happier), but you've got that covered. Maybe more Nugget snuggles will help a little? xo
