White Boyfriend Blazer + Staple Skinny Jeans

 Blazer: Nordstrom {comes in 4 other colors!} | Tank: Urban Outfitters {literally the most comfortable tank ever!!} | Jeans: Current/Elliott {also love these} | Bag: Chloe {super similar} | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik {super similar} | Sunglasses: Celinè | Watch: MK | Ring: Kendra Scott | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o | Bar Necklace: Gorjana | Lips: YSL 'Sheer Candy' #1

I love a good dressed up-casual look.  Jeans and a tank are so comfortable and casual, but throwing on a blazer and a pair of killer heels can instantly take the look to another level.  I have really focused on building my wardrobe and purchasing basics lately (more on that soon), so I'm loving this staple pair of skinny jeans, too.  Most every pair of denim I own is distressed in some way, so I loved this pair because of the faded wash and the sleek fit.  Skinny jeans always pair so well with blazers and this one is such a great, boyfriend fit + the price point is pretty great, too! 

I didn't do my typical 'Lovely's Lookbook' today because I'm prepping my collage for Thursday when the Nordstrom Pre Anniversary Sale starts!  I absolutely cannot wait!!  My favorite sale of the year by far and so many great pieces for Fall.  I'll be sure to round up all of my favs and have a ready-to-shop post for you on Thursday! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Red, Bleu + The White House

 Dress: Anthropologie {on sale + an additional 20% with code SALEAWAY! I'm wearing an xs, of reference} | Shoes: Steve Madden | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Bracelets: Hermès + J.Crew | Clutch: Henri Bendel {on sale!} | Lips: NARS 'Heat Wave'

Hi loves - I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!  I wanted to share this look from our trip to DC with you guys in honor of the 4th coming to a close.  Let me just start by saying this dress is everything!!  I knew I wanted to wear something feminine, all white and timeless and this dress summed up those three things perfectly.  {By the way, it's on MAJOR sale right now with an additional 20% off!!}  Accessorizing with red was a no brainer {cheers to always being festive} and these lace up heels have been my constant go-to as of late.  We had the most amazing time touring the West Wing of the White House and can't wait to go back!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Striped Sweater + White Loafers

 Top: Madewell {obsessed} | Shorts: J.Crew | Shoes: M. Gemi {also obsessed} | Bag: Chloe {exact dupe} | Watch: MK | Bracelet: David Yurman | Rings: Julie Vos c/o + David Yurman | Sunglasses: Prada {also love these for only $20} | Lips: NARS 'Heat Wave'

Hi there lovelies!  I hope you're all having a good week!  Hang tight, we're almost to the weekend!  Let me just start (before outfit) by saying, yesterday was honestly one of the BEST days of my life.  I hope you guys were able to follow along on instagram and snapchat to see how amazing the White House Tour was!  I didn't really know what to expect when we arrived, but touring the House, taking photos throughout and exploring all of the different rooms was so great.  However, at the end, the director told us that the President was flying out at 11:30 AM and asked if we would like to go on the lawn to watch him leave.  I mean, let's be serious.  Is that even a question?!  It was seriously one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of and I feel so grateful to have been able to experience the whole day.  I'll never forget this July 1st, that's for sure!

Anyways, sorry for the ramble, but I thought that experience deserved a line or two today!  So, on to the outfit.  I LOVE this light-weight sweater.  It's so comfortable and the side vents give it a little something extra that I love.  It's so perfect for traveling, too so I'll definitely be wearing this sweater right into Fall.  And the loafers.  Ohhh, the loafers.  I'm obsessed with these white beauts, that's for sure.  They are so comfortable and will easily pair with so many outfits.  If you haven't given M. Gemi a try yet, you totally should!

Thanks so much for reading, following along and stopping by - you guys seriously are the best and I SO appreciate all of your sweet comments and words of encouragement every single day! xoxoxo.

P.S. - We're headed back to the White House tonight for a tour of the West Wing!  So, if you're not already, be sure to follow along on Snapchat (@meganrunionmcr) to see behind the scenes photos and drumroll...the Oval. :)

Pleated Top + Lace Bralette

 
 Top: Free People | Denim: J Brand | Bralette: Anine Bing {obsessed, also love this} | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Watch: MK | Bracelet: David Yurman | Rings: Julie Vos c/o + David Yurman | Sunglasses: Celinè {similar} | Lips: NARS 'Supervixen'

Happy Hump Day, lovelies!  As most of you know from recent blog posts + snapchat (@meganrunionmcr), I've been OBSESSED with bralettes as of late.  I never want to put on a real bra again!!  Haha, of course, that's unrealistic, but they are SO comfortable and chic at the same time so I constantly gravitate towards them.  My black bralette (I also bought it in white) paired perfectly with this pleated, low cut blouse (by Free People).   I knew it would barely show for a little added sex appeal, but all while staying modest and covered up.  And, last but not least, can we talk about this BAG?!  Oh my gosh, I love it so much.  The camel color is so perfect for pairing with basic colors and the black trim gives it a little badass feel that I love.  I'll definitely be carrying this little beaut right into Fall!

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  I'm in DC the rest of the week for a super fun event that I'll be sharing with you guys TODAY on instagram and snapchat!  (@meganrunionmcr)  This is something that I've wanted to do my whole life and I'm so excited to have the opportunity to be apart of.  I can't spill too many details yet, but be sure to follow along with me today and I'll be sharing more on the blog later this week!

Oh, and happy July 1st! 

You guys are the best, thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

Striped Chambray + Distressed Denim

 Top: Madewell | Jeans: Frame Denim {super similar here} | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik {obsessed!} | Handbag: Louis Vuitton 'Favorite MM' | Watch: MK | Bracelet: David Yurman | Earrings: Nordstrom | Rings: David Yurman + Julie Vos c/o | Sunglasses: Celinè | Lips: NARS 'Supervixen'

I looove chambray.  Like really love it.  Especially when you add stripes!  This Madewell top is so cute and the baby doll fit is so effortless and chic.  And of course, I had to pair it with distressed denim (is there any other kind?!) to finish off the look and contrast with the ultra feminine top.  Oh, and can we talk about these shoes for a second?!  I just bought these Manolos last week and could not be more in love with them.  I mean come on, good shoes take you good places!  More on that later this week! 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  As I mentioned in Friday's post, I'll be traveling starting tomorrow and I'm super excited to share it with you guys, so be sure to follow along on instagram and snapchat (both @meganrunionmcr)!  And after that, the 4th!!  My favorite holiday out of the whole year!  I'd love to know what your plans are, so if you have a second, leave me a comment below!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
