How old am I? 

I am 24 and my birthday is in August!

Where do I live? 

After graduation I moved to Dallas, TX but I am a born and raised Buffalonian (aka I am from Buffalo, NY). I grew up in Buffalo and attended college in the area.

What am I studying in school? 

I earned my Bachelors degree in Event Management and Tourism and I also have a minor in HR. Someday I hope to get my MBA.


Who takes my blog pictures? 

My younger sister has been my photographer since day one and she is great at it!

Why did I start blogging? 

I started my blog in my junior year of high school to share my daily outfits and spending lots of time reading fashion blogs and watching YouTube videos. Since then my blog has turned into more than just fashion but I love the combination of the creative and business side running a blog is.

Where does my blog name come from? 

My blog used to be called Mel Chic May but I changed my blog to Miss Melanie May when I redesigned my blog. The name for my blog is simply my first and middle name.


How would I describe my style? 

My style is classic and preppy but also colorful. I love all things striped, monogram and navy and I can't live without a good dress. I would die for Kate Middleton and Jenna Lyons closets.

What are my go to stores? 

I think I could probably live the rest of my life only shopping at J Crew, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, and Lululemon but I also love a good deal. So I love going to TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Old Navy, and Target just to name a few.

How do you do your nails? 

I get dip nails done about every 3-4 weeks which is normally what I have on my nails. I love it because it lasts just as long as gel and is not so hard on your nails. They are totally my real nails but they almost look like acrylics.

Where are my glasses from? 

My current glasses I wear are the Warby Parker Finch glasses and I love them. I recently tried contacts and have been loving that option too.


What diet do you follow? 

I am basically on an anti-inflammatory diet which means that I am gluten free, dairy free, peanut free, and I try to keep sugar to a minimum. I also have a tree nut allergy so I try to eat a lot of fruits, veggies, seeds, and meat. I sometimes have cheat days in the sugar department but for the most part, this diet has helped my health a lot. 

What is wrong with your health? 

Very long story shortened but basically, in December of 2017, I became pretty ill with serious fatigue and muscle pain. After lots of testing the doctors said I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD) which basically means they don't specifically know what type of connective tissue/autoimmune disease I have. They are possibly thinking it might eventually be Lupus but my symptoms and blood work didn't totally fit that. 

What is your workout routine? 

I love Pure Barre and taking spin classes a few times a week. Since I moved to Dallas I joined Equinox and I love it. I love being able to try out all different classes.
