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!

Posh Picks

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

IMG_6714

 

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.

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!

What do you think of this post? Should I continue? Tell me your thoughts!

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.

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

Concrete Jungle

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.

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

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_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?

Today is the last day of 2014…crazy! This year has seriously flown by. I hope this next year brings lots of peace, happiness, joy, and wonderful memories to you all.

This outfit I wore on Christmas Eve, but it is also a great New Year’s Eve outfit as well. The dress I bought at the end of summer at Nordstrom. This is the first time I’ve worn it and I absolutely love it. The snakeskin texture is so fun and I love these grey plaid print tights for an added texture. I love a good fur vest and if I could, I would wear mine every single day. It’s just so glamorous and fun! I love this Rebecca Minkoff bag too! I received it for Christmas and can’t stop wearing it!

Happy New Years and have a wonderful 2015.

I’m back! I feel like I haven’t posted in so long. The blog updating process took a little longer than expected but it’s finished and not too shabby. It’s finally done and I’m very happy about it!

Anyways, I just got back from New York! I had a big plan of taking a lot of blog pictures there but my plan failed. I have one picture of an outfit I wore, but that is it sadly. I will rewear the outfits eventually and post them. I had a great time and did lots of shopping! Zara is amazing and every time I go I buy the whole store I can’t wait to wear all my new pieces!

Now about what I’m wearing…this outfit I wore a couple weeks ago and I loved it. I find it hard to wear cropped sweaters but I had the idea of pairing this Free People ruffle tank underneath it! It makes a boring black sweater a little more exciting! I was excited because I got my hair cut that morning and it was styled perfectly. Since then I have tried to recreate those same curls and I have yet to accomplish it. Let’s just say, hair isn’t my expertise.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

P.S. Sorry the pictures are blurry…something happened when I uploaded them. Technology isn’t easy! Does anyone have any tips? Usually this doesn’t happy when I use my phone for pictures. Somehow, they just turned out so blurry. Frustrating!
