TLE | NO. 31 // CURRENTLY CRAVING



As you can probably tell, my mind is currently being taken over by home dècor!  But, have no fear - I still have my eye out for those must have pieces.  On that note, how amazing is this blush pink belt?! All. the. heart. eyes. for this beaut.  Also, I picked up these sunglasses while we were in NYC and I die for them!  I love the dainty frames, while the sides are thick and badass.  {Here is an image of me wearing them yesterday!} Moving on, this concrete bench literally gives me life.  I can't wait to style our new place and want to incorporate a few darker pieces like concrete and black marble.  And, this french script wall dècor is so chic.  I'm planning to incorporate it into a gallery wall in my new cloffice!

Literally counting down the days - 3 more days until closing and it can't come soon enough.  I hope you're all having a great week so far and thanks so much for stopping by!

Another Day, Another LBD


 Dress: MinkPink | Shoes: Valentino {also here} | Handbag: Chanel {dupe here, on sale!} | Choker: Nordstrom | Sunglasses: Cèline | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + MAC 'Blankety'

First things first - my name is Megan and I have a problem.  I mean, the first step is admitting it, right?  But seriously though, ALL I've been purchasing the past couple of weeks are little black dresses.  As most of you know, I'm all about a chic black and gold combination, so when I found this little number, I was obsessed.  (I also love how it could easily transition into a look appropriate for the office by simply adding a basic tee underneath.)  The price point on this dress is pretty great, too! Now I just need it to come out in white + gold and all my dreams will come true.  Side note: when I really love something, I buy it in every color possible.

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We took off to North Carolina for the day on Saturday and vineyard hopped before uber'ing up to our friends' mountain house for the evening.  They have a hot tub that literally has the most beautiful view, so you know that was right up my alley.  We have a pretty busy few days ahead of us AND we finally close on our new house on Thursday!!  We are SO ready and so excited, so be sure to follow along on snapchat (@meganrunionmcr) for some BTS snaps on that later this week!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Date Night Look | Charleston, SC


Dress: Norma Kamall | Fur Coat: Revolve {sold out, similars here} | Clutch: Saint Laurent | Shoes: Schutz | Earrings: Chanel | Sunglasses: Cèline | Rings: David Yurman {one + two} | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + MAC 'Blankety'

There's nothing like a chic, LBD for date night.  It's so effortless, yet looks so put together at the same time.  I fell in love with this dress for Valentine's Day for so many reasons - the price point is great, I love the feminine neckline, and it paired perfectly with my new heels!  We ended up celebrating Valentine's Day while we were in NYC because we knew we would be exhausted once we returned home on Tuesday.  So we stayed in, J cooked a delicious dinner, and we toasted to a beautiful Fashion Week behind us.

I'm so sorry for my absence this week!  Our last two days in the city were definitely the busiest and we went to bed each night feeling beyond tired.  I always say one day in New York is like three normal days!  Once we got home, we crashed like never before.  I still haven't even unpacked, so that's on my to-do list for today!  I hope you guys have had a great week and I can't wait to catch up over the next few days!

Leave me a comment below and let me know what type of NYC round-up you want to see - Fashion Week content or more about where we ate, stayed, what we did on our off time, etc?

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Creamy Neutrals for VDAY




Top: Free People | Tassel Wrap: Sole Society c/o | Bralette: Anine Bing | Denim: J Brand | Booties: Sole Society c/o | Tote: Sole Society c/o | Sunglasses: Cèline | Lips: MAC Lipstick 'Blankety' + Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Undressed'

Happy Monday, babes - 

This outfit encompasses so many of my favorite things - creamy neutrals, open-toe booties, and most importantly, blush tassels.  This time of year, the weather is crazy here in the South, so layering is key.  It was around 65 degrees over the weekend so this look was perfect for staying comfortable, but still looking put together.  

When Sole Society asked me to partner on this post & talk about how I love my other half, I immediately thought about the word support and how well John loves ME.  Almost five years ago when J and I started FATL as a hobby, having no intention of what it would turn into one day, he supported me from the very beginning.  Since then, a lot of our nights and weekends have been far from normal, as we typically try to shoot content before going out on a date or out to dinner with friends.  Much like you see in the photos above, we love to end each shoot spending time together.  We both love coming up with new ideas, pushing our limits creatively, and simply working together on all of it.  Support is such a huge part of any relationship, but especially when it comes to your spouse, and I'm so grateful each and everyday for how J loves me so well.  In return, I of course support him in each and every way I possibly can.  He has a full time job that also requires a lot of time + attention, as well as a few other hobbies that he's super passionate about.  From the smallest thing in life to the biggest, returning that love and support to him in each area of life is a no brainer.  Our love for each other makes us WANT to continue to out-do one another, always be supportive, and  chase each others dreams together.   

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Our Love Story with Urban Outfitters


Top: Urban Outfitters | Bralette: Urban Outfitters | Leggings: Urban Outfitters | Socks: Urban Outfitters {all c/o UO}

Happy Weekend, lovelies - 

I hope you all had a great week!  I apologize for the lack of posts the past couple of days.  Packing and planning for NYFW was stressful enough, but trying to get into the city on Thursday was such a mess.  If you follow me on snapchat, you probably saw some of the behind the scenes craziness, but we finally made it and we're loving every minute of being back in NYC for a few days!

After moving into our temporary space, while our new home is being renovated, we've spent a lot of time cozied up at home.  There's nothing I love more than comfortable, casual clothes to lounge around in that are still cute.  This crossover top (comes in five colors) is so perfect for wearing with a chic bralette and warm leggings.  Our favorite spot in all the world is together, in bed with a good movie - perfect weekend plans!

In the spirit of Valentines Day approaching, I wanted to share our love story with you!  Let me start by saying I'm a believer in what's meant to be will always find a way and our relationship is the perfect example of that.  As most of you know, John and I got married really young, at 20 and 21 years old.  From the get go, we encountered a few really hard things that completely knocked us off our feet, but the best part of all of it was how strong it made us and how much closer it brought us.  At the end of every single day, we were just so grateful to have each other, our sweet, little home we built together, and unconditional love.  Fast forward seven, almost eight years later and we still feel the exact same way.  We've grown up quite a bit, together, and through any bad that's come our way and all the good we've been blessed with, nothing has shaken our love for each other.  There's no place I'd rather be than by his side, no one that can make me laugh like he does, and no way I could ever ask for anything more than the beautiful life we share!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
