My name's Megan and I love bows. On headbands, on blouses, on shoes, on linen shorts, on clutches, as jewelry.... a bow can make the simplest outfit look instantly sweet, feminine and delicate. Honestly... is anything more ladylike and precious than a bow-y embellishment?! NOPE. I've seen tons of bows on the runways of Valentino, Moschino and Marchesa recently... but I think (most of!) my finds are a liiiittttle more affordable (;

Sorry for the recent blogging hiatus - life has been CRAY lately between finding a place in San Francisco and a big new job offer! But don't worry I'm back in the game now. And honestly there's nothing I'd rather talk about than my obsession with wide brimmed hats as summer approaches. I recently bought this gorgeous Tory Burch fedora after my post on a Tory Burch Friends + Fans Sale and I seriously couldn't be more obsessed with it. No but really, I want to wear it 24/7. Talk about a way to make a girl feel instantly chic and put together - throw a fedora on. No, not the creepy old man fedoras, don't worry. Aside from being SOCUTE, hats actually serve a purpose too people. Let's be honest, there's nothing more unattractive (or PAINFUL) than a super bright red, burnt scalp. Or face. Or anything... So, as my fam vacation to Mexico approaches (CAN'T WAIIIT) I thought I'd share some of my recent to-die-for hat finds so that you, too, can feel fabulous while protecting that pretty little head/face of yours this summer.

Hi friends! Happy hump day. We're only 2 days away from the weekend and that makes me happy! Today I was feeling a more comfortable, casual look (had to be in the office at 5:30am! FML). I am OBSESSED with these gold Tory Burch Kendrick drivers because they are uber comfortable and, well... fabulous. I threw on a white chiffon blouse, a draped, loose-fitted BCBG blazer, jeans & some gold/silver mixed jewelry. Voila! Comfort meets work appropriate.

So I did it. I caved. I bought a pair of floral jeans, you guys. I have been super hesitant to give into the floral trend for a number of reasons, but primarily because my grandma (aka Graham Cracker) has always made it blatantly clear that her favorite "color" is floral. Which means I have stayed away from it for the most part. However, last week I found myself absolutely hypnotized by these last week while doing some major online shopping damage. It was shocking how much I loved them, and I had to have them. So I made them mine, assuming I would probably hate them and return them the minute they arrived at my door. BUT, upon trying them on, everything changed. I envisioned myself in them this weekend with a basic tee & a wedge or with a high-low blouse & pumps with a bold lip color for a night out with the girls. So I made it official - I ripped the tags off. And that, ladies, is the story of how floral print jeans won me over. Here are some others that may or may not be next in my wardrobe..

Hi friends! Today when I was getting ready for work, I was feeling rather bold, so I decided to bust out a recent purchase. Yes, it is a LIME. GREEN. blouse. And I LOVE it! I'm not ashamed - I've totally been getting spray tans 1-2x per week for the past month or so as summer draws nearer, and I'm finally at the stage where I look "normal" tan (ya know, not to light, not to orange, not too dirt-smeared looking). SO, obvi it was time to throw this baby on & rock it with confidence now that I no longer look like a pasty white vampire! I wanted the lime green to be the biggest statement color in my outfit today, so I paired the blouse with skinny jeans and gold/black accessories & shoes!
