Hello my Beautiful Friends! Life has been so absolutely crazy lately and I just wanted to take the time to fill all of you in!

First up, I am done with school for the summer! Teaching is hard and definitely a stressful job so I always look forward to those few weeks in the summer when I can take some time for myself. We have a family vacation to Disney planned in just one short week, we are planning to go to Charleston for my birthday, and I am hoping that we can squeeze in weekend trip to Gatlinburg. I will also be majorly catching up on my blog, all 11 drafts that I have in progress, and planning out new centers for my classroom. I may have 7 weeks off, but I will be busy for most of those!

Another exciting change is that we sold out house! We are currently living with my parents while our dream house is being built. We will finally have some extra, much needed space, and I will have a closet room! Stay tuned for some fun updates on the house and full post on how I edit and organize my closet room. As of last week the foundation had been poured and the frame had been built. Next step is insulation and dry wall! We meet with our builders the first week of June and I we will hopefully find out our closing date. This is such exciting time in our lives and I cannot wait to see what exciting things are still coming in our future.

Vivi is growing like a weed and has developed the cutest little personality. She is very particular about what she likes and is not afraid to tell you “No!” She has an obsession with all things tiny so at any given time our floors are covered with Shopkins, Hatchimals and LOL Dolls. She has also discovered “Cookie Swirl C” videos on YouTube. Those videos are both annoying and extremely addicting! I find myself being sucked in wondering what Shopkins she is going to get in her blind bag or if her LOL Doll will be a limited edition. Clearly I missed my calling in life and should be making videos of unwrapping Shopkins my profession.

It is also getting so much warmer here in Savannah. I feel like we went straight from Winter to Summer. We are already seeing temperatures in the nineties so I know that it is going to be a long, hot summer. The plus side is that I have been able to pull out all of my cute dresses, off the shoulder tops, and fun sandals. I am loving all of the trends for this spring and summer. They are making my inner 90s girl so happy. Give me all of the wide leg, high waisted jeans and platform sandals!

This outfit was from earlier in the spring before the temperatures got significantly higher. I love this light-weight Members Only jacket and feel like it will be great for cooler summer nights. The fact that Members Only is still around making classic jackets also makes my inner 90s girl so happy! The pink color is a fun touch and I love how it gives a more casual vibe to my outfit. I paired it with one of my favorite pairs of jeans, the cutest blush mules, and a comfy tunic. To finish off the look, I added sunglasses, a pair of fun earrings, and my absolute favorite clutch from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch This subscription. I mean a Toaster Pastry Clutch? Yes Please!

A Valentine’s Inspo

It seems like yesterday we were celebrating New Years and now here we are, already half way through February. February is always a busy month but one thing I am always happy to make time for is Valentine’s Day.

While I firmly believe that you don’t really need a day to show someone how much you love them, it is always nice to get dressed up and celebrate on a day just for love.

The great thing about Valentine’s Day is that it is no longer just for couples. It can be a day to spend with your best girlfriends, a day to celebrate your children, a day to show yourself some love, and, of course, a day to spend with your significant other. I have put together three different outfits to serve as some inspiration for your Valentine’s festivities and I know that one of them will work for whatever you have planned!

A Little Self Love

For my first look, I went with a casual vibe, perfect for hanging out and showing yourself a little self love. Whether you are shopping, treating yourself to a manicure, or indulging in your favorite dessert, this is the perfect cute and casual look. I decided to feature two of the biggest styles of this season, chenille and velvet. I love the mix of textures and these colors give off the girliest vibes. My favorite part of the whole look would have to be this super fun Kate Spade tote. It is so roomy! I can put all of my essentials, as well as Vivi’s, and still have room to spare. I finished off the look with my favorite pair of stud booties and the cutest little tassel earrings. This look is the perfect mix of cute and casual and will keep you both festive and comfy!

Galentine’s Day Celebration

For my next look, I went with bright colors and a fun print that would be great for a night out with your Girlfriends. Sometimes a Valentine’s Day is best spent with all of those fabulous ladies in your life. Grabbing drinks, dancing the night away and just spending time with the people that always have your back really does sound like an amazing way to spend Valentine’s Day. The print on this jumpsuit was just gorgeous. I was instantly drawn to the colors as soon as I saw it in the store. I pulled out the pink with this fun, velvet blazer. I finished off the look with my newest clutch from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch This subscription, because everyone knows that Pizza is the real MVP on Valentine’s Day!

A Night Out With My Hunny

For my final look, I went full glam, perfect for a night out with my Hubby. I was really inspired by my friend Mireille over at City Peach. She recently posted the cutest tulle cape and sequin socks and I was in love. After seeing her post I went and ordered my own cape and sequin socks. At the time, I had no idea when I would actually get to wear them but while pulling outfits for this post, I knew that would be perfect for this fun Valentine’s look. I love any excuse to dress up and these two items really gave my look the perfect finishing touch for a night out. I paired the items with the cutest little blush dress. This dress was an H&M find that I found on sale for $6! I couldn’t believe my luck. The dress had a looser fit so I cinched the waist with a cute belt. So I could wear the socks, I picked a classic pair of suede booties and then finished my look with gorgeous, blush tassel earrings. And because no look is complete without a little Megan whimsy, I added another fun Kate Spade bag. This little penguin is all dressed up and ready for his night out as well! This look was so much fun and I just loved spinning around in the little tulle cape.

I hope that you enjoyed all of my Valentine’s outfits! I am sure that one of these ideas will work for whatever you have planned, or at least give you some ideas for what to style from your own closet! The best thing about every piece was that I found it already in my closet! Nothing was bought for these pictures and it was so much fun, and a challenge, to put together outfits using items that I already owned! I encourage you to shop your own closet and do the same. Let me know if you go with any of my suggestions. I would love to see what you style for your Valentine festivities! I always love hearing from you!

She Leaves a Little Sparkle Wherever She Goes

When the new year starts, I don’t know about you but I have all of these big plans. Big plans to wake up earlier, eat healthier, exercise more and put myself on a better schedule. Well here we are on day 23 of the new year and I have already had 5 cheat meals, only exercised twice and have only written one blog. So much for resolutions.

IMG_3045

But as I sit here and type all of this out I can’t help but ask myself, “What is the point of a resolution?” I mean seriously? What is it about a New Year that makes people want to change who they are and the choices they make? Most importantly, why do you need a New Year to make those changes?

Last year, I made a decision to lose weight. It didn’t come because of the New Year. It came because I was tired of looking at myself in the mirror. It came because I was upset at the weight I had allowed myself to put on. It came because I was ready to make a better life choice. For me, it was not a resolution. It was a lifestyle change that just happened to start in the month of January.

What I think that we all need to realize is that we don’t need a New Year to make better life choices. We just need motivation, determination and a want to be better. Whether it is the month of January or October, any time of the year is a good choice to be a better you. For me, it was something that I wanted for myself and only for myself. I didn’t let anyone else influence my decision and I put in the time and effort to make the changes that I wanted a reality. It was not a quick over night fix. It was hard work and persistence that paid off.

IMG_3087

I am writing this to challenge you to make a life style change this year. Not a resolution that you will break in two weeks, but a choice to be a better version of yourself. I feel like if you are making a change to fit with your life style, then their is room to customize it to fit your needs. A resolution is so absolute. Do this. Give up this. Don’t do this. A life style change, however, is more along the lines of, “What kind of choices can I make to make sure this change is successful in my own life?” For me, I knew that I could not give up wine or coffee. Because of this I made the sacrifice to give up something that I could live without. I also knew that I would hardly exercise so I started doing little things like parking further from the door, doing small exercises before bed or taking a walk around my neighborhood. And these choices worked for me!

Bottom line, while I do have hopes and goals for the year, just like last year, what I really want is to make better choices for a better me. I want to sparkle in whatever I do.

Make it a point this year to make a life style change instead of trying to keep up with a resolution. I promise that you will be much more successful, and much happier, with a change tailored to fit your life. Changes are not one size fits all. They have to be molded into what works for you. I encourage you to be the best version of yourself and leave a little sparkle wherever you go. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below! I always love hearing from you!
