Just a quick round up of some of my favorite instagram posts as of late!  Any big plans for the weekend?  We have a pretty low key weekend with just a couple of fun dinners planned - which I LOVE!  Easy and involves great food...that's right up my alley! :)  Also, I've been pinning like a crazy person for the last couple of days!  We're getting to the point where we're almost finished redecorating the main portion of our house and I've been trying to get a little more inspiration for the final details!  Make sure you're following along, @megeanrunionmcr, and pin with me this weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely weekend! xx.

Blush Blazer + Lace Top


Blazer: Topshop {also just purchased this} | Top: Rebecca Taylor {also love this} | Jeans: AG | Shoes: Valentino {less than $100 dupe} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Clutch: Saint Laurent | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Earrings: Dior | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety' layered with Dior Lip Maximizer

I looove a good casual, chic outfit for a weekend look.  I obsessed over this lace top for weeks, finally talked myself into getting it and I'm SO glad I did.  I love the mesh detail in the middle of the lace, accenting your neckline!  It's perfect for layering now and transitioning into Spring/Summer later.  Most of the pieces I'm investing in now are just that - transition pieces.  Another great one is this boyfriend blazer.  I love the way a good blazer can instantly dress up an outfit.  One thing I really want to add to my closet this year is more blazers, and this one was such a perfect start.  Of course, I adore the color and the fit is really great, too.  (I'm wearing a size 4, US 0-2, for reference.)  Anytime I'm looking to dress up an otherwise casual outfit, adding a blazerclutch and a killer pair of shoes always does the trick!

I hope you're all having a great week so far!!  Thanks SO much for stopping by, xx.

Leather + Leopard

Jacket: Free People {I'm wearing a size 2, for reference} | Tee: Madewell | Boyfriend Jeans: Current/Elliott {obsessed} | Shoes: Sam Edelman {love these + these on sale} | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety' layered with Dior Lip Maximizer

I've always loved the tough, mens-style look of a leather jacket and this one is so chic!  Everything from the shoulder detail, to the asymmetrical zips - I love it all.  Oh, and can we talk about these boyfriend jeans?!  I've been on the hunt for a dark wash, lightly distressed pair and these made my little dreams come true!  (I ordered my normal size for a baggy, oversized look, but if you're wanting a more slim fit, I would recommend sizing down one size!)  Overall, this look is a little out of the norm for me, but I love mixing leather with feminine touches.

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

The Lovely Edit | NO. 2

Pink Jacket {just purchased this and LOVE} | Lace Top {wearing this in a post later this week!} | Cat Eye Sunglasses | Blush Lipstick | Highlighting Shimmer | Distressed Denim | Knotted Sandals | Cream Clutch | Floral Perfume

Just a few things that I'm currently craving for Spring!  Obviously, I wear blush/light pink all year, but Spring is definitely my favorite time.  There's just something about the weather warming up + the flowers blooming that compliment the color so well.  Now that we've had one really good snow, I'm totally ready to pack up the sweaters!!  I know, I know, we're not even through January yet, but a girl can dream, right?! 

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  Ours has felt a little off since we were snowed in all weekend and got off of our normal schedule, but oh my gosh, it was SO nice to stay in and be lazy!  If you follow me on snapchat (@meganrunionmcr), you probably saw us enjoying every single minute of the snow and playing in it like five year olds. :)  When you live in the south and only get one, MAYBE two a year, you have to take full advantage!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Valentine's Day Look


Sweater: Splendid | Skirt: Topshop | Boots: Stuart Weitzman {exact dupes HERE for $150!} | Handbag: Chloè | Earrings: Dior {similar HERE} | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety' layered with Dior Lip Maximizer

When thinking about what to wear for Valentine's Day, my go to is always pink.  I love the subtle pattern of this skirt that easily allows you to mix black and grey into your look.  I always want my VDay look to be three things - warm, comfortable, and feminine.  Plus, I'm a sucker for the typical romantic date night: a nice dinner, a chic outfit, fresh flowers, and opening anything super girly.  (In case you missed it, I rounded up a few of my favorite gift ideas for her HERE!)  When it comes to a gift for J, I'm all about a gift card.  He loves to pick out his own dress clothes for work, grooming products, and casual tees for lounging around the house, so my go-to for him is always a Nordstrom gift card.  It's the perfect thing for anyone on your VDay list!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Lovely in Lace

Dress: Lovers + Friends {on sale for less than $100!} | Handbag: Chloè | Shoes: M. Gemi | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety' 

I'm not sure there has ever been a dress that's more ME than this one!  I love everything from the color {obv} to the lace trim to the fit & flare style.  I wanted a super feminine look for going out to dinner while in Chicago (of course I had to put on tights + a ton of layers to even step outside) and this one was absolutely perfect.  If you're looking for a super chic dress to style year 'round for a great price, look no further!

I hope you all had a great week!  I'm so happy it's Friday AND the best part is - it's snowing today!!  I immediately turn into a five year old when they even call for snow.  Remember the days of tirelessly watching the news in hopes that school would be out?!  Ah, those were the days.  Now I just want to get snowed in because one, it's beautiful and two, you don't really have to be an adult when it snows.  No work, all play. :)  I hope you all have a lovely weekend and as always, thanks so much for stopping by! xx.
