NYFW ROUND UP // FEBRUARY 2017

Coat: Rachel Zoe {old, similar here for $100} | Dress: Elliatt {so cozy + price point is great} | Fleece Lined Tights: Shopbop | Handbag: Chanel via Monkees | Booties: Old {similar here} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + MAC 'Blankety'

Happy TGIT, lovelies!  I wanted to share a quick round up of a few NYC snaps + outfit details from our trip!  This was my look for day one for a couple of shows, the Kate Spade Presentation, and a meeting at The Plaza Hotel.  It was really cold, with so much snow on the ground, so layers and cozy textures were a must.  The city is SO pretty in the snow!

The Club Monaco Presentation was held at their Flagship Store on 5th Avenue and was absolutely amazing!  It was by far my favorite presentation we attended this season.  Fresh flowers everywhere, floral prints mixed with black throughout, and a long table stretching the entire length of the store full of champagne, apps, and sweets.  Dreamy, right?  Ruffle top is HERE, as well as the SKIRTSHOES, and EARRINGS.

I snapped this photo of The Plaza Hotel while walking through Central Park one day.  I've always had a thing for birds and I thought this was a really pretty, still moment to capture.  Plus, we're all fully aware of my Plaza Hotel obsession.  I literally can't go in there without reciting every single Home Alone quote I know.  Yes, I'm that girl. :)

Leather Jacket: All Saints | Camo Denim: Zara {exact pair here} | Boots: Stuart Weitzman {my favorites, so comfortable!} | Handbag: Gucci | Tank: Anine Bing | Scarf: Calypso {old, exact similar here}

I wore this look while running around to meetings one day.  It was so hard to walk in the snow, sleet, and salt in heels, so these boots were my saving grace.  Layers on layers were a must for staying warm!  I have to admit, we went to three meetings and one presentation, then called it a day and stopped for a cocktail.  We saw this cute, really old bar (it looked like it was something from a Western movie, in the middle of NYC, so you know I was all about it) called Keens and it was great.  It's been there for over 110 years and we loved hearing the history about it from the bartender.  We want to go back sometime for dinner!

One of our favorite spots to stop for coffee is Ralph's on 5th Avenue.  Their latte's are amazing and it's the perfect set up for snapping a chic instagram.  #bloggerlife

Strolling through Central Park with my love.  This was J's first time going to Central Park and he absolutely loved it.  I don't think he stopped taking photos the entire time and snapped a few absolutely beautiful shots.  This is by far, one of our favorite days together - casual, snow on the ground, and carefree.  

Strolling through snowy Soho on the day we arrived!  After two cancelled flights, an unexpected flight into New Jersey, and an uber ride into the city, our bags didn't make it.  We had three appointments that afternoon/evening that we really wanted to make, so we ventured out into the blizzard to try to find something I could wear (other than my travel outfit).  However, the joke was on us because so many things were closed and it was literally FREEZING.  Haha, so we ended up ordering delivery and staying in our warm hotel that night, which I was not sad about!  NYC is so beautiful in the snow, though.  The city is so crazy with traffic, construction, and consumed with people so the snow just puts this beautiful, fresh white layer over everything.  As cold and stressful as it was, we loved every minute of it.

This photo is from the FRAME Denim Presentation!  Their collection is always so beautiful, full of closet staple pieces and neutrals, which you know is right up my alley.  We were able to go backstage to see the models get ready and it was a really fun experience.  I can't wait to shop the new collection! 

One of my absolute favorite things we did was go to The Plaza Hotel rooftop terrace.  We were at The Plaza for a meeting that was held in one of the Penthouse Suites, so J and I grabbed a bottle of champagne and headed to the terrace.  It was covered in snow, way above my boots, but the view of the city was absolutely breathtaking.  

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a MAJOR obsession with macarons.  Especially from Ladurèe.  There's nothing better in the world in my opinion!  J and I had lunch there in Soho one day and he absolutely loved it.  It was walking distance from our hotel, 11 Howard, so he walked there one morning and brought this back to me in bed.  I mean, let me tell you - it doesn't get much better than John Runion.  He really is the absolute best.  And he knew all of my favorite flavors, salted caramel, chestnut, praline, chocolate, and vanilla.  ALL the praise hands!

This photo was taken on the same terrace I mentioned above.  You can sort of see how much snow is on the ground by the way it's covering the rails - so much snow!!  (Outfit details are on the first image.)

And last, but not least, J and I decided 'when in NYC' to get matching tattoos.  We've been thinking about this for a year or two, and when we noticed there was a really nice place beside our hotel, we just went for it.  More details on that here!

I'll be sharing a part TWO of our NYC trip soon, complete with more outfit details and all of our favorite places we popped into, so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

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.
