Come On, Barbie, Let’s Go Party

Hi Lovelies!

I feel like a Barbie in this outfit. The colors, the lace, the sunglasses, the necklace…everything about it. I love it though:)

Obviously, looking at past posts (specifically here and here) I have a thing for mix & matching colors. I just love bright, summery colors and my motto is always the more the merrier. So, for Friday I picked green and pink, hope you enjoy!

I Am A Bargain Hunter

I am a bargain hunter. It’s true. No, I’m not cheap and no, I’m not that annoying person who tries to get a deal on a loose thread in every store, but I am DEFINITELY a bargain hunter. In college some may have even called me the bargain queen. I would come home from the mall with shirts that cost me $4, panties that were $1 each, and a pair of $3 sandals. My friends would be in awe. “How do you find such cute things on sale? I never do.” Well, first of all my friends, let me say that it is pure luck. Luck that they have my size, luck that it isn’t torn, and luck that it is something I would actually wear. There is no real trick to it, except that you have to shop often:) Now, for me, this is not a problem…I LOVE to shop, but for some shopping is torture. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you are most likely not going to find a whole outfit for $20 unless you shop often.

That being said, today I’m showing off my new bargain from Forever 21. Yes, I realize that most everything in Forever 21 is a bargain, but this is a REAL bargain! I had a Visa giftcard that I won at work and it has been burning a hole in my pocket since the beginning of June when I got it. Obviously, I wanted to get the most bang for my buck, so I headed on over to Forever 21 after work. After looking for about 10 minutes I found it, this skirt (see below). This skirt was only $9.99! I was able to get 2 skirts and a dress with my $50 giftcard and I left feeling happy as can be:) So, without further ado, today’s outfit:

Skirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Charming Charlie
Earrings: Francesca’s
Watch & Bracelet: Charming Charlie
Sandals: Target (Similar here)
Nail Polish: Essie

Oh, and by the way those sandals…$4 at Target! But moving on…for all of you saying that’s great Megan, but I can’t wear a tank top to work, cardigans are your best friend. I have a cardigan in about 5 different colors and they are a super easy way to turn a look like this into something appropriate for work (depending on your dress code). My favorite places for cardigans are definitely Nordstrom (on sale for $19.90) and Target (on sale for $15).

Chelsea came over in the middle of our shoot, ready to bake some cupcakes! Woohoo! I had to get a picture with her as well, because her dress and braid were just TOO cute!

And these are the finished products. We definitely aren’t going to make it into any sort of Pinterest hall of fame(haha), but we had fun and they were SOOO good!

Hope you enjoyed my Wednesday night as much as we did:)

Gettin’ Crafty: DIY Necklace Hanger!

Hi Lovelies! Happy Hump-day!

I plan on celebrating the half way point this week by going to dinner with my lovely husband and then baking cupcakes with my friend, Chelsea, and having a midweek slumber party:) Yay, girl time! I’m sure there will be pictures of our fabulous cupcake making skills later this week, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I wanted to share my attempt at a DIY necklace hanger. As some of you may know, before my current job I worked as a manager at an accessory store called Charming Charlie. Lets just say that it is an understatement that I accumulated a lot of jewelery while working there….but that isn’t the point! Well, I guess it sort of is…I have TOO much jewelery and not enough places to store it all! So, on top of all of my other means of storing jewelery, I decided to make one of my own. Here is the finished product:

DIY Jewelery Holder

It was a very easy project. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought an unfinished plaque, paint, paint stencils, drawer knobs, and some Mod Podge. You can also get these items at Michael’s or Joann’s.

DIY Jewelery Holder

I painted the plaque with my background color (at my old apartment it wasn’t the same color as the wall…lol), let it dry,then used a stencil to paint on the designs. After everything was completely dry I painted over it all with Mod Podge. I then had my loving husband drill some holes for the drawer knobs and screwed them in!

DIY Jewelery Holder

Voila! DIY jewelery hanger that matches my bedroom and cost just under $15! I only put a few of my pieces on it for the picture so that you can see the details, but trust me, it is a lot more full now:) Does anyone else have a great example of a DIY necklace hanger?

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Bit Country…A Little Bit Comfy!

Hey There, Lovelies!

First of all, let me say that dresses are my absolute favorite thing to wear, EVER. I know I wear a lot of pants, but I actually hate pants. If pants are worn, the moment I walk in the door…pants gone! Dresses are the best…they’re comfy, they’re easy…they are perfect for comfy, lazy me:)

I am also a huge fan of chambray shirts this season. They are one of my favorite new trends! A little bit country, a lot comfy, and just all around awesome! So, obviously, it just seemed like the right thing to do to add the two together!

Floral Pants…so fun!

Hello There!

I don’t know about you, but I am SO glad it is the weekend. I have been beyond exhausted lately (mostly due to staying up late every night catching up on Game Of Thrones, but that is BESIDES the point!). Anyways, I didn’t have time to upload my pictures from yesterday’s outfit due to the fact that Wes and I went to dinner and Main Event with some friends to bowl and play laser tag. Yes, we are 26 years old and we still play laser tag. I am also extremely competitive when it comes to my laser tag…but that is a story for another day.

Here is my fabulous outfit from yesterday, which I received quite a few compliments about. Doesn’t that always make you smile??? Me too:)
