What's up, Team MC?! 

I'm still on a high from the Bentonville Film Festival in Bentonville, Arkansas with my Cantu Crew. We went down as part of Road to Essence, a pre-Essence Festival event series with Walmart & Essence Magazine. I was able to share the magic of Cantu with the people of Bentonville last Friday & Saturday, and then I did a little bit of exploring around what I call Wal-Mart city. Bentonville is the home of the Wal-Mart Headquarters, and I felt both amazed and fortunate to see Sam Walton's first store and walk through the Wal-Mart museum. If you subscribe to my newsletter, I'll talk about it more in this week's issue. 

With all that excitement behind me, I'm finally back home and getting back to my Melissa Chanel business. I'm thinking: Why not start this week out with an outfit post? It wouldn't be a Melissa Chanel outfit without an off the shoulder top, haha! You guys thought I was kidding when I said it's my new uniform, huh? I have every intention of keeping my shoulders out ALL Summer '17. ;-) 

The long sleeves and stripes makes this shirt an instant fave, in my book! I decided to pair it with a pair of Levi denim shorts and nude Steve Madden sandals to complete the summer-chic look.

My legs are by far one of my favorite physical features, and there's just something about showing them off in a pair of shorts and high heels that makes me feel oh-so-sexy. Ladies, when styling yourself, take a minute to love your body and find that feature that you absolutely love, and think of ways to accentuate it. Whether it's your Beyonce curves, your broad, beautiful shoulders, or your Michelle Obama arms, start flaunting it! 

If you wanna get your hands on this top, head over to Don't forget to tell her I sent you! I'm obsessed with this online boutique and all of the super cute pieces they have. 

What pieces are you adding to your spring/summer wardrobe?
