Me wearing a black pair of joggers

I have known Mallory for a few years now. She was so very helpful to me in assisting me while I styled a Fashion Show for Fashion D’ Lux two years ago. I always knew she had a passion for clothing and style…and I am super proud that she turned her dream into reality. She quit her full-time job and created MARU Collections!

I was so very honored to receive an email from her recently, asking me to help represent her brand…not only does she have an online boutique whereby she hand selects each item…she is deeply committed and goes the extra mile to ensure that all of her offerings are Made in America! Her slogan…”Quality over Quantity” is truly representative of her brand. Mallory will be expanding her collection soon by creating and incorporating her own line of clothing…I am so super excited for this reveal.

In addition to a few trendy items, I love that Mallory has focused on staple pieces that you should have in your wardrobe. Investing in these pieces is a no-fail! You can basically wear them all year long and will get so much use out of them…the limits are endless when it comes to creating outfits centered around these incredible pieces.

In the meantime…go give her a look…wonderful collections for women and men. Keep a watch out for her debut of MARU Originals!

Here are some of the looks I love…click links to purchase. Use my code MELISSA15 for a discount!

This Stars Forever Tank is one of my favorites! It has a loose fit, racerback style that is ultra soft and comfy…pair with jeans or leggings…wear year-round! These Day-to-Night Newton Skinny Jeans…OMG…they fit perfectly on your waist…not to high…not too low…and Ladies…they have stretch!!!

Who can resist this comfy dress with POCKETS!!! You will love this Saturday Soho Dress…comes in rust and black…one size fits all! Definitely a look you can pull off any season!

Do you love joggers as much as I do? You will be obsessed with these!!!! So super soft and cozy…you will not be able to take them off…oh…and they have pockets! Don’t forget to use my code MELISSA15 for discount. As an alternative, pair with her classic tee, vans and a cool denim jacket! Oh…and how much do you love this doggie stroller? My Viva just turned 10 and will only walk for short distances…not because she can’t…she just refuses to! This is so handy when I want to take her on long walks or getaways…click here to purchase! This stroller is the Excursion and can fit up to 100 lbs.

Have I ever told you about Mallory’s ability to pick out the perfect tees to add to her collection? OMG is all I can say…the fabric of every single tee is incredible…so super soft and comfortable…impeccable quality and always Made in the USA! This Can You Keep a Secret Tee was perfect for apple picking yesterday at Windy Hill Orchard and Hard Cider…I am in love with the design…I paired it with jeans, but I can also imagine it with black tights and a denim or black jacket…I’ll be posting more pics soon on other styling options!

Let’s talk SWEATERS…just not your ordinary, everyday sweater…one that will probably be the softest and comfiest you have ever worn…and it comes in three colors!
