I’d Rather Be Shopping

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!

These shoes are amazing! It’s as simple as that. Fit In Clouds makes flats that you can keep in your purse when your heels/boots/normal shoes are murdering your feet. I wear these all day long though…whoops! I don’t want to take them off honestly. I encourage you all to buy them! Plus, they are under $25!

These flats go with so many things. I decided to pair mine with a cropped blush sweater and some distressed skinnies. I added a leopard belt and a floral statement necklace for a fun touch!

One plaid dress…3 ways~Part 3

This is the last part of my Style Series! I styled the dress with a faux fur vest, some faux leather leggings and some Timberlands. I think this look is a little glam and a lot of edge. I also have worn this jacket with a camel leather jacket. I think tan/camel/beige is such a pretty combination with the plaid!

I hope you enjoyed these past three posts! I hope to do more like this in the future!

Here is Part 2 of my Style Series! I decided to put a grey cable knit sweater over the plaid dress. I love how the plaid collar pops out of it. I’m wearing thigh-high socks that match the sweater and give the allusion I’m wearing tights. You could always wear tights (black or grey) or just knee high socks as well. The red crossbody matches the dress and gives a pop of color against all of this grey!

Even though my dress is not sold anymore, I added some options below!

I decided to do a 3 part style series. This one is styling a plaid shirtdress 3 different ways. I bought this dress at Zara and I fell in love instantly. I wear it all the time and it’s so easy to make it look different every single time.

This time I paired it with a Free People moto jacket, some tall riding boots, a little red cross body, and a necklace. This look can be worn just about anywhere. It can go from day to night by adding a leather jacket and some booties.

Check back Wednesday for Part 3!

Pink, pink, and more pink picks

Add subtitle text 1

 

 

Okay, I love pink. I like how Valentine’s brings out all of the little pink accessories, but I’m not a fair weather fan. I am a pink person all year round, but since it’s almost Valentine’s Day I decided to share some gifts I am lusting after. Hint hint boyfriend. Ladies, give your men the hint!

1. This is adorable…amazing…absolutely awesome! I want this so badly because the floral print is perfect for Spring and Summer, but will always brighten up a Winter day. Marc Jacobs is a master. MARC BY MARC JACOBS- ‘Jerrie Rose-Sally’ Flower Print Crossbody bag– $198

2. I don’t know how long I’ve wanted a cute sleep mask. This just reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I don’t know how long I could keep this on at night…I just want to be like Blair in Gossip Girl. PJ SALVAGE Sleep Mask– $16

3. Again with the Gossip Girl comment but I am just so into headbands lately. Thanks Blair Waldorf. This one is silky, hot pink, and perfect (in my ever so humble opinion.) L.ERIKSON ‘Mid’ Silk Charmeuse Wrapped Headband

4. We all have the beloved Lonchamp tote, but this one is hot pink! I have the black one and use it everyday. I think the hot pink one is a must have though! LONGCHAMP ‘Large Le Pliage’ Tote– $145

5. I hoard makeup bags like no other, but this one is adorable! I love the kisses! CHARLOTTE TILBURY Makeup Bag– $20

6. I think cute phone cases are the perfect accessory! KATE SPADE NEW YORK ‘clear hearts’ iPhone 5 & 5s case– $40

7. I know I won’t be getting this ever, but this is every girl’s dream shoe! How could I not include this on my Pink Picks?! VALENTINO ‘Rockstud’ Leather T-Strap Pump– $995

8. These little heart studs are hard to resist! MARC BY MARC JACOBS ‘Love Edge’ Stud Earrings– $42

9. Every girl needs a pair of pink running shoes to workout in style! NIKE ‘Free Flyknit 4.0’ Running Shoe– $120

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

I am happy to announce that I am the face of She’s So Moxie, an online boutique! They offer the most adorable tops, dresses, etc. I am wearing the Be Free Boho Top. The minute I saw this top I thought of so many ways I could style it.

I decided to start with a Valentine’s Day themed outfit. The flowy fit of this top goes perfectly with these polka-dot blush jeans. I added a red bow headband and adorable red flats for some festive colors. These flats my grandma gave to me and I absolutely adore them! The snakeskin print is so fun and the red reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz! This wristlet doubles as a phone charger, but I will talk more about that in a future post.

This post is all about how wonderful She’s So Moxie is! Meg, the owner, has such an eye for style. The pieces she buys are so fun and chic. This top is casual and comfortable, but super chic. You can make this appropriate for Valentine’s Day with some light pink or red denim and some cute flats in a fun color too! Add a pink or red bag and you are ready for the day/night!

Don’t be fooled by all of this pink or red though. This top can be styled so many different ways for Spring and Summer. I will be styling this more times in the future so be on the look out when the weather gets nicer! I have some great ideas for Spring Break outfits with this top. Did I mention it comes in Coral too?!

I encourage you to go check out She’s So Moxie. Moxie means confident, determined and courageous. Every girl should have some Moxie in her. Meg’s goal is to help each girl find her inner moxie.

****For the month of February, She’s So Moxie is donating a portion of each order to Feed My Starving Children. They are a non-profit Christian foundation committed to feeding God’s children who are hungry in body and spirit. Meals are hand packed and specifically formulated for malnourished children. These meals are shipped to 70 countries around the world. Meg will be helping to package these meals this month too. Please support her and this organization!****

So, go out there and find your inner Moxie! Below, you will find some of my favorite picks from her store. Get your online shopping on ladies!

Some floral, some pink & a beanie

IMG_0042 IMG_0045 IMG_0046 IMG_0048 IMG_0044 IMG_0047

 

I am a big fan of statement sweatshirts. They are comfortable and cute and can be dressed up or worn with sweats. I purchased this one at J.Crew on super sale! I decided to add another pop of color and paired my pink denim as well. The colors in my beanie and the taupe booties are nice neutrals as well.

I never go anywhere without accessories. Instead of just one statement necklace, why not wear two!? This works because the tassel necklace is longer but the floral necklace matches the sweatshirt perfectly. A little Louis Vuitton never hurts either!

What are your tips for mixing necklaces?
