The Perfect Nude Lip

As most of you know, I like to keep things pretty neutral - from my outfit and accessories to my make up and lip color.  My favorite thing about a nude lip is that it goes with any outfit, any season and any time of day.  There's nothing more classic than that!  Also, I love how a nude lip looks with bronzy, sun kissed skin for Summertime, so I thought I would round up a few of my favorites for you today!  (This lipstick in 'Lush Coconut' is my absolute favorite for wearing with either a no makeup look or at the beach/pool.  It's super sheer, but gives you such a pretty, hydrated plump!)

For starters, my hands down FAVORITE lip liner is MAC 'Stripdown'.  It pairs perfectly with all of the nude lipsticks and glosses listed below.

1. | Anastasia Beverly Hills Gloss in 'Undressed' {super pigmented, not shinny, + perfect for layering}

2. | Chanel Hydrating Lipstick in 'Adrienne' {has a pinky hue and a shimmery sheen + super hydrating}

3. | NARS Lipstick in 'Barbara' {matte, a bit of a darker nude, + stays on really well}

4. | YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' Lipstick in 'Beige Tribute' {my favorite nude, super hydrating, + perfect with the liner I mentioned above}

5. | MAC Lipstick in 'Blankety' {a lighter nude, very pigmented, + great price point}

6. | Chanel Lip Gloss in 'Beige Star' {perfect for layering, has a blush undertone, adds shine to any lipstick}

I'm typically more of a skincare nut than a beauty guru, however, I can spot a good nude lipstick from  across the room.  Any and every time I shop for a new shade, I always end up choosing a neutral out of the bunch.  You literally can't go wrong with any of these for Summer!  Feel free to comment on my instagram if you have any questions about my nude picks - I'm happy to answer them!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

 Happy Monday, babes - 

I hope you all had a great weekend!  If you follow me on snap, you probably saw that J and I spent the weekend working on projects at home.  We (and by we, I mean he) painted our bedroom a creamy white and it looks so fresh + beautiful!  We have some furniture coming later this week and I've been picking out decor little by little.  Our new bed won't be in for another 8-9 weeks, so I'm hoping that by the time that comes in, I'll have it all complete!  What did you guys do this weekend?!

Be sure to follow along on instagram, @meganrunionmcr!

I hope you all had a great week!  After coming back from vacation last week, I had a lot to catch up on and accomplish, so I'm glad I got a lot of that done!  I wore this look to dinner last night at our favorite spot in Greenville {Halls Chophouse} and it was perfect for the occasion!  I love how the back splits, too, it's so chic + comfortable at the same time!  If you follow me on snap, you got a closer look at it last night (I mean we also ran into Harry Connick Jr. last night while I was wearing this so I'm never getting rid of it!! #luckyjumpsuit :) and because so many of you loved it, Monkees and I came up with a promo code for you!  Use code 'LOVELY' to take 10% off the jumpsuit AND they'll ship it to you for FREE!  (You can comment on their instagram, or call them directly!)  Doesn't get much better than that for a Friday steal!

There's nothing better than a casual, yet chic look to throw on for happy hour!  I wore this look last night to one of our favorite mexican restaurants for margaritas and tacos.  I LOVE this knotted tee so much that I bought it in two colors!  I mean, at $38, it's such a great price and perfect for Summer.  Also, I love pairing my Goyard tote with grey.  It looks good with so many colors, but grey is definitely my favorite!  I added a d'orsay pump to dress the look up a bit and add a little height to my cuffed denim.  Overall, an easy + super cute outfit that can easily go from day to night!

Neutral in Camo

Jacket: Topshop {obsessed} | Crop Top: Forever 21 {less than $7!} | Skirt: Zara {similar HEREHEREHEREHERE

Shoes: Schutz {if you're local, you can grab these from Monkees of the Westend!} | Handbag: Louis Vuitton 'Pochette' {similar HERE}

Earrings: Chanel | Watch: MK | Bracelets: MK + Vintage Chanel | Sunglasses: RayBan

Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Beige Tribute' 

Although this is not my typical go-to outfit (I usually keep things a little more casual than a mini skirt and crop top), I looove this look!  I'm not sure if it's the southern girl in me or my need for a touch of badass, but I've always been a fan of camouflage.  I love the look of an oversized jacket with a skirt or dress underneath.  It's instantly makes your skirt or dress not look as short and adds a super chic element to the overall outfit.  Also, can we talk about these shoes?!  I picked mine up from Monkees of the Westend here in Greenville, so if you're local, be sure to stop by and grab a pair for Summer!

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  I'm still playing catch up & getting my life organized again after vacation!  Plus, we're currently redecorating our bedroom AND revamping our back yard, so in the words of Carrie Bradshaw  - I've been cheating on fashion with furniture!  I'm so excited about how it's all coming together though and I can't wait to share it with you!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
