Blush + Bows | Midtown, New York City

Top: Anine Bing {on major sale!} | Jeans: J Brand {closet staple} | Flats: Prada | Handbag: Chanel {exact dupe here} | Earrings: Vintage Chanel {really love these, too} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety'

Happy Wednesday, babes - 

I'm headed out of town this morning and spending the next few days in one of my favorite cities - Chicago!  J and I went to Chicago for the first time earlier this year (in January) and absolutely loved it.  Everyone joked that there was no way we were just visiting for fun, because it was negative nine degrees and snowing out, but we actually were!  When I think about Chicago, I think cold + windy weather, cozy fireplaces, and eating delicious comfort food, like Italian.  So that's exactly what we did!  And as amazing as it was, I must say I'm excited to be back in the city when it's not quite SO cold.  The weather should be really nice, only in the upper 50's each day, so that should be pretty perfect for welcoming Fall!  

On another note, this is a more casual look I wore while in NYC.  I love, love, love this top!  I've already worn it so much because it's perfect for the transition weather we've been having here in the South.  So casual, yet chic, and my top is currently on major sale!! (I'm wearing a size small)

Be sure to follow along on instagram and snapchat (both @meganrunionmcr) for BTS while I'm in Chicago!  I'm meeting my bestie, the lovely McKenna Bleu, there and then our boys are coming up in a couple of days for a fun-filled weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

TLE NO. 24 | NEUTRAL FALL PICKS



Just a few of my favorite, neutral picks for Fall!  I'm obsessed with cozy textures and prints from home decor to Fall clothing + accessories.  Just like my outfit from yesterday's post (below), I don't think I'll ever tire of blush, gray, and black!

I'm packing up today and leaving in the morning for a fun trip with my McKenna Bleu!  I'm so excited to share more details with you, so be sure to follow along on instagram and snapchat, both @meganrunionmcr! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Classic Black + Blush | New York, New York


Top: NBD {love this} | Culottes: Milly {also here} | Pumps: Christian Louboutin | Handbag: Valentino | Earrings: Chanel | Sunglasses: Cèline | Watch: MK | Rings: David Yurman {one + two - Champagne Citrine} | Bracelets: David Yurman {one + two} | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety'

Hi there, lovelies - 

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We actually ended up staying in town and bailing on our Charleston weekend last minute.  Like I mentioned in Thursday's post, I love, love, LOVE traveling, but I also love being a homebody some days.  There's no place more comfortable, more quaint, or that exudes more love than our home and sometimes I just want to sit in it.  Literally.  We spent Saturday morning at home - cooking breakfast, watching a movie, and spending time with our sweet pups.  Then, we went for a long walk before cooking dinner with my family that evening.  Family days are  healing for me.  Whether it be just me and J, along with our pups, or my extended family, spending time with them is just good for my soul.  Then, we spent Sunday with my cousin and his wife - church, brunch, and 9 holes of golf.  (Which if you saw my snapchat was quite the experience!  I'm pretty sure I got a hole-in-27 at one point...)  I took golf lessons a few years ago when I worked for a country club and absolutely loved it, but like anything, when it's not something you do often, you just aren't so good at it. :/  But, if you know me at all, you know I live my best life on a golf cart, so I was completely entertained. :)  Anyway, all of that to say, our planned weekend getaway ended up being a family-filled stay-cation and I loved every second of it.  

I wore this look while in NYC for Fashion Week and fell in love with this combination!  The cut-out top is a little on the sexier side, but because of that, it paired so well with the high-waisted, blush culottes.  (I also wore the top HERE!)  Also, can we talk about how perfect these Louboutins are?!  I desperately needed a new black pump and knew I wanted something super classic.  I'd never tried on or owned the 'Decollette' style before, but loved the sleek look of them and they turned out to be SO perfect!  They're actually not too bad to walk in (I think I wore them for almost 5 hours this day, which yes, that was a little majorly overboard, but at least I broke them in!) and such a closet staple!  If you're looking to splurge a bit on a classic, black pump, I would definitely try this style!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Head to Toe Classic | New York, New York



Blazer: Club Monaco {also here} | Tee: Topshop {closet staple + only $20} | Jeans: FRAME {obsessed} | Flats: Prada | Handbag: Chanel {similar here} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Watch: MK | Brooch: Chanel | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Beige Tribute'

TGIT, babes!  Can I just start by saying how genuinely happy my heart is this morning?!  J and I stayed in last night, cooked an amazing dinner, AND two of my favorite TV shows came back on!  It really is the little things in life.  
I wore this casual, yet super chic look in NYC last week and it's funny how things work out.  Prior to leaving for New York, I purchased, tried on, styled, planned, and packed SO many looks.  Then, once we arrived, it's a few days of madness making all of those plans come to life.  And as much as I loved all of those looks, this was one that I threw together last minute and it ended up being my very favorite.  Like, for real though.  As much as I love a dressy, super put together look, I definitely prefer a messy yet chic, undone, and casual look.  Always.

What are you guys up to this weekend?!  J and I are taking off to Charleston for a quick getaway and I'm excited to be back in one of my favorite cities for a few days!  However, I still feel like I basically just got home from NYC + I'm taking off again on Wednesday of next week!  Cray-zee.  I know.  Travel is the main reason that I never feel like I have my life together.  As much as I love it, and I do, it makes me a crazy person sometimes!  But, at the end of the day - YOLO.  Soaking up every minute of each and every trip, location, and my favorite people that I do it all with!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Cozy Guest Room with Lulu & Georgia


Harllow Table Lamp | Belen Rug, Gray | Pina Throw, Blush | Emaline Bar Cart | Audrey Lamp, White

Hi there, lovelies -

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite, cozy details in our guest room.  No matter what your décor style is, Lulu & Georgia has so many amazing options for any room in your home.  As most of you know from our home tour, we love a mix of 'French Farmhouse', while still adding in newer, super chic accents.  Lulu & Georgia helped us accomplish that perfectly in our guest bedroom!  Since we have an antique bed + dresser in this space, the gold bar cart as a nightstand, beautiful white table lamps, and the lux, cashmere throw really brought them room to life.  Also, I'm not sure if I've ever received more compliments on a rug as I have on this one!  The floral pattern and dark gray color paired with the white and cream design is so romantic and ties the room together perfectly.  After redecorating and remodeling each and every room in our house for the past year or so, this one has quickly become one of my favorites! (You can see more details in our home tour HERE!)

So, it's officially complete!  Who wants to come stay?!  I make really great coffee in the mornings and J is a fabulous cook! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Thanks to Lulu & Georgia for partnering on this post!
