First off, sorry for the atrocious lighting. I had to crop the sunlight out of these pictures. I learned never to do inside pictures by a bright window again! Anyways, I really love this outfit. I wish I got it in better lighting but hopefully you can tell regardless.

This dress was $20 from Forever 21. This shirt is Burberry, so obviously the two prices are very different. However, I love the way the two look together. I wanted to wear this dress in the winter and thought adding a crisp, white button down did the trick. Throw on some black tights, sparkly heels, and a glam necklace and you have a chic and dressy outfit.

I am so honored to be co-hosting Confident Twosday with I do deClaire! Laura’s style is amazing and she always looks chic and professional! Thank you for letting me co-host!

This outfit was sort of a mismatch of pieces. I wanted to wear this plaid blanket scarf and thought this sweater matched perfectly. I decided to add some fun on the bottom so I wore these grey/silver velour leggings too. They are really fun and can be worn so many different ways!

A fashion tip: I like is to add a fun statement necklace with a scarf. It adds some glam and makes the outfit even better!

What I’m loving…

What I am loving 2

 

#1: I have been looking for the perfect winter coat that is chic and classic. I think J.Crew is the epitome of class and prep (besides Burberry) and that they hit the nail on the head with this coat. I wish I could buy this but it is too expensive. Next year for sure! DOUBLE-CLOTH LADY DAY COAT-J.CREW

#2: I have become such a fan of cute and flouncy skirts. Is flouncy a word? Anyways, I think this one is adorable, but can be paired with so many different tops. I would wear this with a cropped sweater, or a nice and crisp blouse tucked in. I would add tights and some wedge booties or fun heels. What about you? By the way, this is called the flounce skirt which I didn’t realize until just now. So yes, flouncy is a word, and this skirt is on sale. FLOUNCE SKIRT-J.CREW

#3: Is it just me or are you craving a cute striped dress too? I think it is Kourtney Kardashian that makes me want one. This Topshop one is simple, but chic. I am going to purchase this for Spring/Summer…thanks Kourtney! TOPSHOP STRIPE SWEATER DRESS- NORDSTROM

#4: I am a huge Rebecca Minkoff fan. I think her bags are all amazing. This one reminds me of a little Celine bag, but at a much better cost. The marble print is unexpected and so fun. REBECCA MINKOFF ‘AVERY’ CROSSBODY

#5: These wedge sandals are amazing. I am obsessed with anything strappy and these are on my Spring/Summer list! They would look amazing with distressed boyfriend jeans and a oversize knit for Spring or a cute romper or denim cutoffs for Summer. JEFFREY CAMPBELL ‘CORS’ SUEDE PEEP TOE BOOTIES

PINTEREST PICK OF THE WEEK

I don’t know if it’s the major statement necklace, or oversize sweater, but I want this outfit in my closet pronto. Those ankle length black denim and the black booties are perfect too. I love the printed scarf and the huge tote.

WWBWD- I think I’ve been watching too much Gossip Girl lately, but this seems true. I have been through all the seasons three times and am on my 4th go around. Why not right?! Blair is my favorite character. I love her style, and her actions.

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve enjoyed the 2nd round of Posh Picks.

Faux fur and a Midi

So, this outfit looks a lot better in person. The pictures don’t really do it justice. I got this midi dress at H&M for $3! I didn’t know if I would ever wear it, but I thought why not. I think a faux fur vest looks good with anything so I added this on top with some moto boots. Of course I added a statement necklace too.

I’m going to style this dress different ways in the future to show how to dress up a simple basic.

P.S. Again, please ignore my handsome photographer in the background. We have learned better.

I have been dying to wear this cropped sweatshirt but I have trouble finding things it looks good with. I have tried numerous skirts and even track pants but I finally found the perfect skirt. This skirt is from Zara and only $15…amazing right?! I love the pretty floral pattern on the skirt that is subtle but meshes well with many different tops. I love the jewels on this sweatshirt. You don’t even have to wear a necklace, but of course I did anyways.

Last but not least is this beautiful Chanel bag. Wanna hear a secret? It’s fake…but who’s going to tell? Not me!

P.S.: Please ignore my handsome photographer in the background…he didn’t know he was visible!

Have a great week!

Happy Friday!

I wanted to expand what I am posting a little bit so I have a new section called Posh Picks. I will talk about the things I’m loving right now, and suggest to you!

WHAT I’M LOVING: 

 

0001-49880895

 

This week all of my picks are from the Savvy department at Nordstrom. If you have never heard of them, seriously check them out. All of these picks are relatively inexpensive.

1. This sweater I love because of the long back. I really want a long and light cardigan to wear with distressed denim, some booties and a tee. LOVE BY DESIGN OMBRE HIGH/LOW OPEN CARDIGAN

2. I am really loving the J.O.A. brand right now. They have some really great pieces at great prices. I want to wear it with some sparkly tights, bootie wedges and a moto jacket. J.O.A. SLEEVELESS STRIPE DRESS

3. I am in search of a jacket that isn’t puffy, or thin. This one is classic and I love the asymmetrical zipper which is a fun change of pace. GLAMOROUS ASYMMETRICAL ZIP COAT

4. I have been looking for a good cape and this is the perfect one! Well, the Burberry one is the perfect one, but this will do! I like the pretty colors and Topshop always has great quality. I got a couple Nordstrom gift cards for Christmas and this may or may not be going in my shopping cart tonight… TOPSHOP CHECK PRINT CAPE

5. We all need a good black purse and what’s not to love about faux fur? TOPSHOP FAUX FUR CARRYALL BAG

 

PINTEREST PICK OF THE WEEK

I am obsessed with this outfit! The distressed boyfriend jeans and leather jacket are enough to make me want to copy it. That oversize sweater looks super comfy as well! If I were to wear this I would wear booties instead, and maybe add a fun blanket scarf. What do you think?

MOVIES, BOOKS & MORE

This movie is a must see. It has been a favorite of mine forever. Before I saw the movie I was singing along to the soundtrack for weeks before. “The City’s Yours” and “Opportunity” are two new songs that I can’t stop listening to right now! My little sister and I have gone to see this twice, and plan on going at least once more.

Unknown-1

If you are a fan of the “Confessions of a Shopaholic” series by Sophie Kinsella, then you will enjoy this book. If you have never read any of them, then I suggest you start immediately! All of us bloggers can relate to Becky in one way or another. I am a huge reader and couldn’t put this one down!

How delicious do these Deep Dish Oatmeal Fudge Bars sound? I found the recipe on Pinterest and I am dying to make them!

TGFZ: Thank God for Zara. Am I right? I spent way too much money there when I was in NYC but it was definitely worth it. This plaid scarf I absolutely love! It’s soft, cozy, extra large, and extra perfect. I also got this striped tee from there for a total of $13. I will wear this constantly! My favorite new purchase is my Timberlands. I have been wanting a pair for a while and I love them. They can toughen up any outfit and add a cool, new vibe. My Free People moto jacket is something else that can be worn any day, any time, anywhere. I love versatile pieces and I think everything I’m wearing is just that.

Now, about my cross body. I bought it at C.Wonder when the store was going out of business. Sadly, now the stores are going out of business which is a real bummer because I was a huge fan. I got this bag for $30, instead of $130. I love it the fun camo print!

P.S. Thank you for all of the advice on cameras! I have not decided yet, but all of your advice was so helpful.

Camera advice ~please and thank you~

The time has come…for me to buy a real camera. Yep, no more iPhone photos in a while. The only problem is I have no idea what to buy, or even where to get started. I need your help!

****What camera do you use? OR What camera do you recommend? Could you please tell me a little bit about the camera (pros & cons) and what the price is. I’m not looking to spend a ton of money. I would say $300-$400 is best. ****

Please comment below and tell me your thoughts.

Thank you very much!

I am obsessed with both this jacket and tee. The jacket is from Lululemon so technically it is workout gear, but I wear it with a normal outfit as well. It is reversible as well and the other side is black. So perfect! The tee underneath isn’t pictured very well but the link is included below. I got it for Christmas from J.Crew and want to wear it everyday! I wish I would have taken off the jacket and shown off the cool sleeves but my photographer (my 9 year old sister) was getting cold. So I encourage you to check the link below and see it for yourself. It is on super sale which is the perfect incentive.

These are velour leggings I’ve had for a while. I can’t get enough of them though. If you don’t have a pair, go buy some now! I included links of where to find some. They are super comfy, but really cute and add a fun vibe to any outfit. I also love wearing a headband like this sometimes. It doesn’t last long because it messes up my hair quickly so I have some pictures without it.

I hope 2015 is treating you all well so far. I know this year is going to fly by.

Megan

I am finally posting pictures from my New York trip. I go about once a year, but every single time I end up taking pictures of the same places because I fall in love with them all over again.

IMG_6386
Outside of Tiffany’s…my favorite! It is magical inside and always makes me think of my favorite movie.

IMG_6374


The Saks Fifth Avenue windows were beautiful. I wanted to take a picture of every single one. They had an amazing light show every five minutes on the top of the building and it was perfect.

IMG_6391A little closeup of my outfit.

IMG_6398I love this necklace that my boyfriend’s mom got me for Christmas. I think I’ve worn it every day since!

The American Girl store will always be my favorite. I am not mad that they rebranded all of their dolls and changed the graphics. I think the older version was better, but I had Samantha and she has always been my favorite.

 Harry Winston, every girl’s dream. They always have the most beautiful holiday decorations.

IMG_6389The Plaza Hotel. I stayed there once and it was like a dream. It always makes me think of Eloise (and yes, they have a store for her inside.)

IMG_6394The Rockefeller tree…beautiful. I would have liked better pictures but every time I was there there were masses of people…masses!

 Times Square view from the Renaissance Hotel…a must see!

Bryce and I’s dessert at the hotel…key lime pie. I feel so basic taking a dessert picture but why not when you’re in NYC?!

IMG_6419A little selfie with the tree.

FullSizeRenderMy boyfriend Bryce and I sitting atop of Times Square. We had such a fun night!

Overall, I had such a fun trip! I shopped til I dropped…literally. My feet were hurting so badly I wanted to cry. I visit New York about once a year and I can’t wait for my next trip!

Also, every time I upload my pictures WordPress makes them blurry. Does anyone else have this experience with wordpress.org? How can I fix this?
