Pom Poms Are My New Favorite



I saw these all over last summer and they are already popping up again! Thank goodness, because I LOVE them! They make everything a little girlie and feminine. To be honest, they even make some ugly, old lady prints adorable just by being attached! Haha! I really want to make some pom pom shorts for myself this spring that I can wear with my bikini at Barton Springs:) I will most DEFINITELY be making some for little girls to put in my shop too! I’ll have to list them in adult sizes and offer them up to all of you as well, because lets be real…they WILL be adorable! Maybe a pom pom giveaway is in order?! We shall see!

Do you have any pom pom items? If you do, I’m jealous! Share where they came from and a link to how you styled them!

One Outfit, Two Seasons

Hi Lovelies!

We are finally past hump day and one day closer to a 3 day weekend! Woohoo! This is going to be an exceptionally grand labor day weekend for me, as this year will be the first in 3 years that I have actually had it off of work! Oh, the joys of working in retail management…thank goodness for 8-5 jobs!

Now, on to today’s outfit! I bought this shirt back in the retail working days, when I bought everything just because I had a discount. I brought it home, I wore it once, and then it sat in green section of my closet for the next 6 months. Luckily, I was searching through my closet this past weekend, after buying the fabulous pink necklace you see below, and I decided that they would go so well together with some white skinny jeans and sandals! The bright pink color and white skinny jeans really helped to bring the deep teal into summer.

The second outfit came from my dilemma I spoke of earlier in the week: wearing white pants after labor day. I don’t have a problem with it, and in order to make EVERYONE else see that the rule is indeed stupid, I decided to show y’all just how to dress white denim for fall. So here you have it, summer fading in to fall:

Until tomorrow…

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:




_DSC0179Tank top: Target ($9 in store, and more colors)
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!

Dress: Urban Outfitters
Sandals: Hollister
Infinity Necklace: Charming Charlie
Sunglasses: Ray Bans


Don’t we look classy in our aprons?

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:)
