Anything With A Bow...

Good Morning Loves,






Top: H&M, Jeans: 7 For All Mankind, Belt: J. Crew (similar), Shoes: Steve Madden (similar), Sunnies:  Ray Ban, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J. Crew + Asos Spike, Necklaces: Baublebar + Gorjana, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spades' + c/o GlamRock Designs, Earrings: Nadri, Clutch: Asos, Lips: Laura Mercier in Violet.

I love anything, and I mean anything, with a bow.  In fact, I'm a tad obsessed :) This shirt is perfect for transitioning into Fall-by itself during the day or with a cardy at night.  If you follow my blog, you know that skinny jeans are typically my go to style, but I have a lot of flares that I still make room for in my wardrobe.  I like to wear wide leg jean with a tighter shirt.  Sometimes, simple but fun, casual outfits are the best. :)

Have a lovely day!

A Pink Suit

Good Morning Loves,





Jacket & Shorts: Zara, Top: Banana Republic (similar), Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar, except sparkly, not suede), Handbag: Asos, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spades' + c/o GlamRock Designs, Necklace: Gorjana, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J. Crew + Asos Spike, Earrings: Nadri, Lips: MAC Pink Poodle.

I hope you guys had a great weekend!  I love the "fantasy" fabric (as Zara calls it) of this jacket and shorts--the moment I saw the set, I knew I had to have it.  The weather is perfect in South Carolina right now for this outfit as it's getting cool in the evenings.  These Jimmy Choo's are by far my favorite pair of shoes that I own, but let me tell you-after a couple of hours, I was pulling my flats out. Whew, those heels are high! :) In my book, you can never go wrong with pink and black--definitely a fave!

Have a lovely day,
xx.

Olive & Black

Good Morning Loves,






Blazer: Forever 21 (recent), Pants: 7 For All Mankind, Tank: Banana Republic (similar), Necklace: Lia Sophia, Handbag: Asos {my new favorite!}, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Asos Spike + J. Crew, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spade' + c/o GlamRock Designs + Asos Zigzag, Earrings: Nadri, Shoes: Steve Madden (similar), Lips: Laura Mercier in Violet.

One of my favorite colors to wear for Fall is this Olive Green!  I got married in October and this is the color my bridesmaids wore, which is another reason I'm instantly drawn to it.  I'm so glad it's finally time to layer!  I could wear a blazer everyday, they are definitely one of my favorite pieces. Also, I found this little Handbag @ Asos and was obsessed! I've looked at so many different versions of this bag, but never bought one and this little gem was so cute-not to mention a great price!  You'll be seeing a lot more of this guy. :)  Blazers, Handbags, Shoes...oh my--what are you adding to your fall wardrobe this season?

Have a lovely day!

Lazy Date Night In

Good Morning Loves,








Top: Forever 21 (old), Pants: Zara (similar), Necklace: Gorjana, Bracelets: J. Crew + Asos Spike, Watch: Michael Kors, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spades' + c/o GlamRock Designs, Earrings: Nadri.

Sometimes, especially on a rainy night, it's fun to just stay in and have a lazy date night at home with the husband.  I'm obsessed with cozy sweaters that have dolman sleeves.  You can dress them down for a comfy, casual night or pair it with a full skirt and heels for a fabulous relaxed-chic look.  Plus, these red skinnies have been on repeat lately--you can seriously pair them with anything. I can't wait to wear these around the Holidays!  At the end of the day, I'm a homebody and I love hanging around the house-cooking dinner, drinking coffee and reading my new Vogue...Life is good! :)

Have a lovely day!

Megan

Fall Stripes

Good Morning Loves,




Top: J. Crew (on sale!), Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft, Navy (similar), Belt: J. Crew (old), Shoes: Steve Madden (similar), Handbag: Michael Kors, Necklace: Baublebar, Rings: c/o GlamRock Designs + Kate Spade 'Mini Spades', Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J. Crew + J. Crew (old), Earrings: Nadri, Lips: Laura Mercier in Violet.

Happy Monday!  It's rainy and dreary in Greenville today, so I'm not sure how happy that makes a Monday, but we'll go with it. :)  {This is a look I wore to Church yesterday.}  I'm loving stripes for Fall and this top mixes two great colors- the hottest shade for fall, Bordeaux, and a pretty shade of hot pink. I paired this with navy to keep the warm color theme going, but you could really pair this with anything! Plus, time to break out the suede shoes, which is one of my favorite things! :)

Have a lovely day!

Megan

P.S.--Wrong day to forget sunnies, it was so bright outside!!

Top: J. Crew (similar), Pants: Gap {old}, Shoes: Steve Madden (similar), Belt: Banana Republic (similar), Gifted Pearls + Misc. Strands, Bracelet: J. Crew + Lia Sophia, Watch: Michael Kors, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spades' + c/o GlamRock Designs {can't get enough of these}, Earrings: Nadri, Sunnies: Ray Ban, Lips: Laura Mercier in Violet, Nails: OPI in Glitzerland.

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel like you have nothing in your closet?  Well, it's that kind of day! I was pulling out all the stops trying to throw something on in a hurry and this is what I came up with... sometimes it's nice to break away from the usual wardrobe choices and go for something a little less expected.  I'm all about mixing leopard with different patterns and textures this Season and this is a start!

Have a lovely day!

Black + Tan

Good Morning Loves,






Top: Forever 21, Shorts: J. Crew, Shoes: Zara, Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Watch: Michael Kors, Earrings: Nadri {obviously obsessed}, Bracelet: J. Crew + Lia Sophia, Rings: c/o GlamRock Designs + Kate Spade 'Mini Spades', Nails: OPI Glitzerland, Lips: Laura Mercier in Violet.

The 70 degree weather this weekend was perfect for shorts and a sheer blouse.  I love an effortless look that you can lounge in all day, but still looks chic.  These Zara heels are so versatile and by far the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.  An ideal outfit for transitioning in to Fall! 

Have a lovely day!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!  I've always been a fan of the shift dress and the slit in the front and back gives this look a little something extra.  Orange is definitely one of my favorite colors, but I was also sporting this to Church yesterday in honor of Clemson's big win Saturday! {Go Tigers!} This is the perfect outfit to transition in to Fall...and I'm ready! :)

Have a lovely day!!

{Pretty} Pastels...

Good Morning Loves,









Top: Forever 21, Pants: J Brand {in Romantic}, Shoes: Tory Burch, Belt: J. Crew {old}, Necklace: Baublebar, Earrings: Nadri {Gold}, Rings: Kate Spade 'Mini Spades' + c/o GlamRock Designs + Asos Zig Zag + Vintage, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J. Crew + PetitCoeur Jewelry {Adore this}, Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nails: Revlon 'Wintery Green' + OPI Bubble Bath.

I don't care what time of year it is, I'm obsessed with pastels!  I could literally wear this mint green color every. single. day. :) These J Brands were on my wish list for a while and after seeing them a few different places, I'm so happy I got them!  I feel like the light pink {romantic} color can go with so many different things.  Plus, I live in these Tory Burch flats-the color goes with anything and the patent leather & gold add a little sparkle to an everyday flat.  As you can tell from my posts, I like to mix a little a lot of gold jewelry with everything I wear.  I'm looking forward to finding a way to transition all of my pastels in to Fall!

Have a lovely day!
