It’s Dress Time Again!

Good row clothing- dress

Now, I don’t want to jinx anything at all…but the weather has been absolutely gorgeous here in Austin lately. Perfect temperature and perfectly sunshiney…who could ask for anything more? Warmer wetaher obviously calls for dresses and sandals. I’m sorry…I don’t care if it is January or August, if it is warm enough, you will see me in a dress. When Good Row asked me to style a piece from their site, I jumped right on this one! I have had my eye on it and I just LOVE the colors! Not to mention it is SUPER soft! They have some super cute stuff up in the shop right now, including this floral maxi that I am DYING over…and it’s only $44.50! Throw on a floppy hat with that one and you would look adorable at a summer wedding…just sayin’!;-)Floral midi dress-Good row Floral dress with Kendra Scott Floral bodycon dress Good row clothing company Tory Burch crossbody Floral dress from good row Black Floral dress for spring Black floral dress from Good RowDress c/o Good Row Clothing  //  Tory Burch Crossbody  //  Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace & Morgan Studs  //  Sandals- Steinmart $19.99 Jack Rogers look-a-likes (you’re welcome!)  //  Charming Charlie Bracelet & Sunglasses  //  Swell Caroline Jackie/Audret/Gatsby Bangle

This dress is definitely on my go to list for brunch wear, especially as the weather starts to get warmer here in Austin. It’s perfect for waiting outside on South Congress, yet it still has sleeves so that when I go inside to the air conditioning I don’t freeze myself to death! Oh the joys of living in a warm climate…<sigh> I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend! Be safe and be sure to keep up on Instagram and let me know what fun things you guys are doing!

Wardrobe Versatility: One Dress Three Ways

All That Glitters: How to style a patterned dress three ways! She has cute clothes and each post tells where she gets them!
One of the most important things I want to give to my readers is the knowledge that you can take your wardrobe further than you ever thought possible. Yes, don’t get me wrong I love to shop and it’s great to buy new things each season, but I can always find a new fun way to remix something I already own as well. When I buy new things I like to sit in the dressing room and think of multiple different ways to wear an item. There are ALWAYS multiple ways:)
All That Glitters: How to style a patterned dress three ways! She has cute clothes and each post tells where she gets them!
This dress was purchased back in August and I have now documented three totally different ways of wearing it here on the blog. That’s not even mentioning the other 3 or 4 ways I have worn it that just never made it to the photography stage. A lot of women would look at a dress like this, add a necklace to it and maybe some heels and they would wear it pretty much the same way every time it came out of the closet. THIS! This is why we get sick of our wardrobes so quickly! We don’t mix and match our items! We don’t get creative and wild with our wardrobe pieces! Mixing it up is what will keep you excited about your clothing options. Add a hat, add a scarf, add a different scarf, add a DIFFERENT scarf. Layer on a vest or a cardigan.  Put it over a chambray shirt. Add a belt to it or choose different shoes. Pattern mix! There are SO many things you can do to change the look of any outfit you put on, you just have to be inspired:) So, here I am, that’s my job….to inspire you! Today I have 3 ways to wear this printed shirt dress!

Don’t let the fact that you don’t have this EXACT dress hold you back, take the accessories and add them to a fun patterned dress that you already have in your closet! And to show you that ALL of these pieces are versatile, here are a few posts for the other items showing them styled with other outfits!

Heels- These are pretty new, I’ll link back here when I post them again:)
Now, tell me honestly. If I came to work in one of these outfits per week, three weeks in a row would you say, “Oh, that Megan, she’s wearing that same boring dress again.”?

Patience Is A Virtue…That I Don’t Have

Navy shirt dress with floppy hat and boots
When spring first comes you can often hear me talking about how I wish I didn’t have to work inside and what I wouldn’t give to sit outside on my computer when I need to be doing indoor things. Come fall, I am SO glad I do work inside if only because of my lack of patience in waiting for fall to come. It has been much cooler here in Austin in the mornings, but other than that it has been 80+ degrees pretty consistently for the past few weeks. We have had a day or two here and there of cooler weather, but for the most part it has been warm. The reason I am so glad I work inside during the fall is because then I get to wear all of my pretty fall clothes and layers and it doesn’t bother me:) I have to dress for the real weather on Mondays because Monday is errand day, but other than that I am in full fall force! Looking at me while I’m at work, you would think it was 60 degrees outside daily. I’m sure my boss and the men at work all think I am crazy, but I just love fall fashion too much to miss out on any of it! When I get home from work I always have to “Texify” my fall outfits if we are going anywhere or eating out that night…but for the daytime I get to dream that it really is 60 outside. Don’t worry, I still love my hot Texas weather, I’ll be over fall by November and back to bragging that it’s 80 when it’s 40 everywhere else:)

In my defense it is chilly in the office sometimes. I work with a bunch of men so the air is turned pretty low most of the time. This outfit is a example of that “Texifican” technique I was talking about earlier. The cardigan and tights have come off and I am ready to venture out into the real world where I would die of heat stroke otherwise. Do you live in a hot climate? If so, do you like to pretend its cold out too?:)

Happy Birthday With A Great Big Bow

Pink floral dress with a bow

Hi Lovelies!

It’s my birthday! I am starting to feel old now. 25 wasn’t so bad, 26 got a little worse, but the number 27 just SEEMS so much older. <sigh> Where does the time go? This dress seemed fitting to post on my birthday, since it is the epitome of me. Pink with bows, how much more fun and girly can you get? You will have to forgive me while my tan lines take over the upper portion of my body, I blame the tank top I wore while paddle boarding this past weekend. Speaking of paddle boarding, Nicolle’s boyfriend is in town this week so we went again last night. You seriously need to go if you have never been. So much fun! I’m pretty sure I am going to die this morning at bootcamp from all of the paddling, but I’ll just have super sexy arms by the end of the summer, eh? :)

 Today is actually the day I decided to get serious with my blog last year. I had done a few posts here and there, but it wasn’t until my birthday that I decided I really loved it and wanted to do more of it:) So, happy anniversary to my blog as well! Well, I am off to bootcamp (yes, even on my birthday) and then work. I hope you all have a wonderful June 12th!

My easter dress

Hi Lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter if you celebrate it:) We spent Friday night in downtown with some friends and some drinks, Saturday involved a couple trips to Home Depot and a lot of packing, and Sunday we had some mimosas and realized that nothing is open on Easter. Yeah, next year we need to make sure that we go to the grocery store on Saturday and not wait until Sunday. We ended up having to go to Walmart and the steaks and corn on the cob we got were awful. Such a sad day.

Last week, I posted about some really cute Easter dresses I found online, but since we are in the middle of buying a house (Yes! More info soon!) we are trying to save money and a new dress was not in the cards for me. I have had this dress for a few years now, I got it back in the retail workin’ days, and it is still one of my favorites. It’s comfortable, it’s cute, and it’s so very girlie!

What did you wear this weekend? Outfit post? Link it up in the comments!
