My Favorite Trend for Fall | TLE NO. 22




You all know how much I LOVE a cozy texture or fabric.  Everything from wrapping up in a soft cardigan to a cashmere blanket.  But, my newest favorite: VELVET.  I've seen so many clothes, accessories, and home dècor items come out in a Velvet fabric for Fall, but I really fell in love with it over the weekend while in Atlanta.  I picked up these Velvet Pumps at Neimans while we were there and it brought back this 8th grade love I used to have for velvet.  I remember this leopard, velvet skirt I used to have in middle school that was my JAM, and it really is true - everything comes back around.   Okay, well maybe not my leopard mini skirt, but the fabric!  I'm thinking my next velvet purchase may have to be these bordeaux skinny jeans or this velvet + lace bralette - they're both SO chic!  

I hope you're all having a great week so far and thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

Hi there, babes - 

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We spent the weekend in Atlanta at The Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead and had the most amazing time.  We literally spent the majority of our weekend in the hotel room, drinking champagne, ordering chicken fingers from room service (okay, maybe that was just me), and lounging around.  Most of the time when we travel, we're so busy running around working and sight-seeing, but this was such a quick trip we decided to simple stay in and relax.  Other than that, we walked over to Lenox Square, which was just around the corner from the hotel, and did a little mid-day shopping.  That mall is uh-mazing!!  So many of my favorite stores that we don't have in Greenville, so it's nice to see things in person before purchasing.  I got my hands on a pair of grey, velvet pumps and couldn't leave without them!

I threw on this look for an easy, shopping day outfit and it was so comfortable!  This top is great for transitioning into Fall and such a steal for only $29!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

We officially made it to the weekend!! {Insert ALL the praise hands!}  I don't know about you guys, but I've had a crazy, busy week!!  Between being out of town last weekend and heading out again today, everything in between was just a blur.  But, J and I are heading out this afternoon for a little weekend getaway, just the two of us, and I'm so excited!  We're working with one of my absolute favorites - so stay tuned and follow along on snapchat, @meganrunionmcr!  What are you guys up to this weekend?!

I love this casual, comfortable yet chic look!  I wore this last weekend on our way home from the bed and breakfast (details below) and it was so cozy.  Definitely perfect for transitioning into Fall!

I wore this look while we were in Asheville last weekend and it was so perfect.  The weather was about 70 degrees all day with a lot of rain on and off, so it was cozy + comfortable, without being unrealistic.  This cardigan is SO cozy and such a great price, too!  I bought it in grey, and olive, too!

TLE | NO. 21 || FALL TRANSITION





As the seasons to start change, the weather cools down, and layers start becoming a necessity - that means my favorite time of year is right around the corner!  I've started to purchase a few things to transition my closet into Fall, as well as a few staple pieces that I'll get use out of for years to come.  

A few of my favorites out of this list: this oversized pocket turtleneck is so cute (you can see me wearing it HERE), this camo jacket is beyond perfect for layering (you can see a similar one I styled HERE), this striped tee is such a closet staple that you'll wear again and again throughout the rest of the year, this suede jacket is so great for Fall - especially the color (see mine HERE), this denim jacket is such a fun twist on the normal and feels so soft, and last but not least, these cognac pumps will literally go with almost everything you throw on this season.  If you're looking for a perfect mix of trendy + classic pieces to kick off the season with, look no further than these closet staples!

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

Weekend Recap | Asheville, NC

Happy Monday, lovelies - 

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos, snaps, and moments from our weekend getaway!  We started at Hotel Domestique, checking in Friday afternoon, for a relaxing, celebratory weekend with friends.  My girlfriend Paula just celebrated the second volume of her magazine, The Scout Guide, being released, so we all took off for a few days away.  The best part about Hotel Domestique, other than how obviously gorgeous it is there, is that it's only twenty minutes away from our house!  As much as I love to travel to all of these crazy places, it's SO nice to feel like you're away, but only have a short drive back home.  Friday evening, we enjoyed dinner on the terrace at the hotel restaurant, Restaurant 17.  The food + cocktails were amazing!  The weather was perfect, we were surrounded by two of our best friends, and the food + drinks were on constant rotation.  There's something so special about just sitting around a table, laughing, and making memories with the ones you love.
Here's a little snapshot of my luggage + favorite new flats once we arrived.  I love how everything at the hotel feels so cozy + quaint - rocky walls and floors everywhere + a terra-cotta roof and antique-french shutters, but with more modern decor.  (If you follow along on snapchat, @meganrunionmcr, then you saw more of the hotel, our room, and the amazing views!)  Oh, and another favorite part about the hotel - they use Hermès body + skincare products!  We've only been to one other hotel that used the same products, but they are amazing!!  So luxurious and smell so fresh.
Saturday morning, we woke up, had breakfast on the terrace and started getting ready to head to Asheville for the day.  Asheville is a great getaway for us, too, because it's only about 30 minutes away from Hotel Domestique.  We decided to start with lunch at this amazing place called Curate and it was literally the. best. ever.  John and I both love spicy, mexican or spanish inspired food, so it was totally right up our alley.  The portions are all basically appetizer portions, which is so great because you can order a combination of things and try more!  We started with the Sparkling Sangria, which was to die for, and then moved on to the lamb skewers, goat cheese stuffed piquillo peppers, croquetas chicken fritters, and smoked chorizo + potato puree. 
After lunch we bounced around to a few other places - we popped a couple bottles of rosè, snacked on truffle fries, ran into a couple of boutique shops, enjoyed a bottle of Veuve at The Bomhemian, and eventually ended up at one of our favorite places, Grove Park Inn.  AKA the coziest place on earth!  J and I love to go there for dinner because not only is the food amazing, but everything from the massive fireplaces all over the hotel to the beautiful views of Asheville is absolute perfection.  We especially love to go during Fall/Winter, so this was a great kickstart to the season.  We ate on the terrace, overlooking the foggy mountains, and had a delicious dinner for four!
 The next morning, we enjoyed one last breakfast together before packing up and heading back home!  I love throwing on something comfortable, yet chic for lounging around and this blush sweater + cotton shorts were the perfect combination.  Also, how cool is this chair?!  They are all over the hotel and I would love to have something similar for our front porch.  The hunt is officially on!

You can see more of what I wore throughout the weekend hereherehere, and in the widget below.  The weather was perfect for really starting to transition into cooler weather and made for an absolutely beautiful weekend getaway!
