A Spring staple

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

 

I am a huge fan of joggers. I stock up on them whenever I see a cute pair. I found these at TJ Maxx for $12 and they will be a Spring and Summer staple. It was still chilly on this day so I wore a sweater with these. On a warmer day I will wear a graphic tee or basic instead! I love these little booties with the pants, and sandals would look good too.

What is your staple for Spring/Summer? Mine are joggers, little dress and skirts, a sleeveless blazer and graphic tees/tanks!

Mixing textures

1 2 3 4 5

 

For some reason, this winter all I have wanted to wear are skirts and dresses. It makes the cold weather blues go away. I am always trying to find new ways to mix up my skirts and dresses. I have a few skirts and always try wearing them with different tops or sweaters.

Underneath this amazing and super cozy sweater is a tank top summer dress. I decided to wear it as a skirt with this sweater. I added the velour silver leggings for a fun touch and different texture. I think tall boots and skirts/dresses are a perfect combination in the winter as well!

When it comes to variety and mixing up your closet, playing with textures is a great thing to try. I love wearing fun leggings like these velour ones and then adding a moto jacket, or a faux fur vest with a simple top or sweater underneath. It is a fun way to make Winter a little bit better!

How to look cute on St. Patrick’s Day

I am not one to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but when The Shopping Bag asked me to style an outfit with this themed necklace, I was excited! I decided to pair this fun necklace with a plaid top and a olive green jacket. I like to mix greens and blues and thought the necklace worked with the shirt and jacket.

Jeweled- How to take inspiration from an outfit and make it your own

I saw this picture on Who What Wear and needed to recreate this outfit immediately. I have this jeweled crop sweater in my closet and have never really worn it. I didn’t think it would layer well over a top and I just didn’t know how to style it. When I saw the picture I tried layering an unbuttoned chambray shirt underneath and loved it. I think unbuttoning the bottom is such a great idea and looks really good with a skirt.

I love this Zara skirt (sold out) and I wear it all of the time! It is so transitional and can be styled so many different ways. It was raining this day so I wore my rain boots and put on a necklace and called it an outfit. At night, I wore a button down Burberry top which dressed it up a little more. Both work!

A camel leather jacket and a Burberry scarf

I am so sick of winter. I am counting down the days until the weather gets warmer, but I don’t know when that will be! I am tired of getting dressed in the morning because I just want to wear a dress and some sandals. I think I’m going to wear workout clothes to class today (gasp!). However, I stole this outfit from my mom’s closet to try to find some new things to wear.

I love this chunky white cable knit sweater with the zippers. Any sweater with a zipper is a winner in my book. The camel leather jacket and plaid Burberry scarf are perfect accessories. As I always say, why just wear a scarf when you can wear a statement necklace too!

I read an article in Who What Wear about the third piece to every outfit. It says that every outfit should have a third element to it. So, if you wear a sweater and jeans, you have to add a jacket, vest, scarf, etc. I always tried to stick with this rule before I even knew it was a rule! It’s a great read!

PS: I am hosting a giveaway with 7 other shops and bloggers! This means that there are 8 winners! I am giving away a necklace that you will have to look at my Instagram tomorrow if you want to see! @poshprime

I read this in my devotional last week and thought I would inspire others just like I was inspired. Random acts of kindness do so much good.

I won an Instagram giveaway from Maude Boutique! I am obsessed with this candle and the pillow is too cute. The necklace is perfect and I love all of the pretty colors! I can’t wait to try out these tattoos when I’m not embarrassed to show my pale arms.

 “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happiest girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” Audrey Hepburn is such an inspiration to me.

How to layer a long cardigan

FullSizeRender FullSizeRender FullSizeRender FullSizeRender FullSizeRender

 

I needed a long cardigan in my life and found one on sale for $12 from ASOS! I have to admit, it is hard to style. The slits are a tad annoying but I decided to pair it with a graphic tee and a moto jacket. I love how the scarf adds proportion and more length. I think next time I am going to wear wedge booties or shorter boots.

Layering is all about working with lengths and textures. It is fun pairing a long top with a shorter vest and adding a scarf and/or a statement necklace.

Today I am featured as the Blogger Babe of the Week over at the Blogger Collective! Go check me out HERE!

I’d Rather Be Shopping

IMG_7225 IMG_7229 IMG_7232 IMG_7235 IMG_7240 IMG_7243 IMG_7246 IMG_7239 IMG_7238

 

I’d Rather Be Shopping. I thought after my post Friday that this outfit would be perfect! I bought this tee at Zara in NYC. As soon as I saw it I grabbed and said I’m buying this no matter what it costs. It ended up being $10. Could it be any more perfect?! I love tucking it into skirts or wearing it with jeans as well. I love this skirt from Zara for only $15. I really like this sweater but as a chunky knit, it is too chunky. I wish it were a little less big…but oh well. This was from Zara too of course.

Have a great week!

Shopaholics unite~How to be the best shopper you can be

8fb211609515f2ef16aceb85d73054aa

 

My name is Megan and I am a shopaholic. Those who know me know that I like to shop…love to shop…need to shop. You get it. Seriously though, who isn’t. Anyways, I decided to post about my addiction and how to make yours even better. So, let’s talk about shopping!

1. I am a heavy online shopping, but I browse more than I buy. I will go on Nordstrom’s site every day and add things to my wish list. When I am in the mood to buy something I just click on “Add to shopping cart,” or delete things I realize I don’t want/need. I will always check out other sites for sales and always add things to my shopping bag, but I rarely buy them. This cleanses the system of the need to shop.

2. The mall. Are these the two best words in the dictionary? YES! I love going to the mall and it gives me both chills and anxiety. I always walk around debating if I should have purchased “That sweater from Nordstrom” or “The sale top from J.Crew.” Nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy…just like everything you buy haunts you when you realize you don’t want it anymore. My go-to is to buy the item and if I get home and don’t like it, then I can return it. I also tend to not buy the item and buy it online the next day…that doesn’t work so well.

3. I know a good sale better than anyone. When I walk into a store I head straight to the sale racks. J.Crew is the best one around. I always know that eventually their full-price items will be an extra 40% off the sale price. I have purchased some great pieces there and quality ones too! Madewell is another sale rack favorite. Nordstrom always has good items on sale. Speaking of that, they are having a major sale right now! Before you ask, yes I have purchased four things already.

4. The best part about shopping is looking at an item and immediately styling in your head. The other day I saw a blush colored sleeveless blazer and instantly I styled it with some distressed boyfriend jeans and a long white top in my head. Doing this makes it easier to incorporate it into your closet. I enjoy getting home with my new purchases, trying them on again, and mixing and matching them with pieces I already own. I also Pinterest search an item like “sleeveless blazer,” “camo pants,” etc and get inspiration from there!

I hope you enjoy reading my tips and advice! Don’t worry if you are a shopaholic too…we all are! It is nothing to be ashamed of!

I found this article and needed to share it! I know that at least 10 are true for me!

All black and a cowl neck~Layering with Coffee and a Blonde

Today, Victoria from Coffee and a Blonde and I are talking about layering. I love to layer and do it almost every day. This time I decided to wear all black, because why not! You can’t go wrong with all black. I love this cowl neck thermal from Splendid. I wear it all the time because it is warm and long enough to cover my booty. I paired my black faux fur vest over it and added a black Burberry winter coat. This embellished beanie is one of my favorites too!

Victoria is wearing a similar beanie and decided to add a fun orange scarf for a pop of color with her green Hunter boots! Check out her post for how to layer too!
