A Good Old Printed Peplum

Hi Lovelies!

I am SLOWLY….very slowly, but surely learning how to take pictures that aren’t in automatic. Aren’t you proud? Don’t they look fabulous? Yeah, personally I don’t think that they look all that different…but maybe that just means I am an expert automatic photographer:) Haha! Well, on to today’s outfit, featuring my new photography skills! I got this shirt a while back at Francesca’s and it is my go to “comfy, but still looks like I tried” shirt. And really, what goes better with a comfortable shirt than leggings? Nada.

Ruffles And Lace

Hi Lovelies!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember this outfit from my post a few weeks ago. This is one of my favorite summer dresses and I really wanted to find a nice way to bring it in to fall with me. I have to say, I think I succeeded pretty well, don’t you?

Well, this should teach me to try and write a post the night before. Looky here, it’s 1:00AM and I am just now getting the thing posted. I don’t have any witty remarks for you today, nor do I have any good stories. So, I guess you will just have to settle with a cute outfit:)

Until next time…

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:)

Fly Blue Birds, Fly…

Hello There!

First of all, can I say how dangerous it is for me to work so close to such GOOD shopping? I have this horrible tendency to “stop by just to look” during my lunch break and it is really not good on my paycheck. Well, at least I can admit I have a problem, right? That is probably not even close to something my dear husband would accept as an answer, haha!

Anyways,ย  I was browsing blogs last night and I came across a few cute items from Francesca’s Collections. I haven’t been to Francesca’s in such a long time, so I HAD to go “just look” and see what they had. An hour and more money than I would like to admit later, I had some brand new outfits. As they lie on the seat next to me in the car I could feel myself smile (this is how you know you have a problem). I was scheming…scheming what my next great outfit would be and this is what I came up with:
