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!

From Edgy to Chic: Styling a Leather Jacket

I have always loved a good leather jacket. There is just something about them that looks both edgy and chic and the same time. My problem with them is that I could never find one that fit me how I imagined. The arms were too tight, the jacket was too loose, or the fit was all wrong. That all changed the moment that I received this jacket (c/o) from Members Only. To say that I was obsessed would be an understatement. Even though we were on the brink of spring, I couldn’t wait to style it so many different ways.

I really feel like a lot of people tend to style a leather jacket one specific way. It is usually styled on the edgier side with jeans or all black. In reality, a good leather jacket is an essential that really should be in everyone’s closet because it can be styled so many different ways. I have always tended to be drawn to the unexpected when it comes to my clothing choices. Whether is be a whole lot of pattern mixing, white pants in winter, or a completely unique handbag, I want my clothes to stand out and make statement. When you style a leather jacket in an unexpected way, that is exactly what you are doing. I feel like your jacket is able to stand out more and people are even more drawn to the style of your outfit.

For my first outfit, I went completely unexpected and paired my jacket with a long maxi skirt. I love the fit of this skirt because it is the perfect length to wear with cute sandals and flows and moves perfectly with each of my steps. The mixture of blue, yellow, and orange really makes a statement and then the black stripes help to pull everything in together. The sharp, black lines reminded me of the style and form of a good leather jacket so I knew that they would be a perfect fit for one another. I kept my top simple with a crisp, white tank and added some of my favorite spring accessories. Hands down, this bag is one of my absolute favorite purchases. It is perfect for spring and summer and really makes a statement. My sandals were a simple black choice and my earrings had a fun tassel design that brought out the orange in my skirt.

For my next look, I really wanted to focus on the colors of spring. I let this adorable, floral bag from Target be my inspiration and began pulling together items from my closet. I focused on the pretty pink, the soft lavender, and the rich green of spring. I decided to go with olive green because I felt like it was a more unexpected pairing and I really like how it helped to pull the the other pastel colors together. I feel like the ruffles on the shirt really helped to soften the whole look and give everything a more girlie vibe. I kept my bottoms simple with a classic pair of dark wash skinny jeans and finished off the entire look with that fabulous leather jacket. I love how the jacket gives a slight, edgy vibe to an otherwise feminine outfit. Each piece paired so well together giving the outfit an effortless feel. This entire outfit has quickly become a favorite and I expect it to be on repeat all season long.

For my next look, I definitely went with edgier vibes. While it was fun to style a leather jacket in unexpected ways, you can’t go wrong with what is expected. Destroyed black denim, the softest, perfect chambray top, and a little snake print give this look head turning style with ease. I couldn’t got too edgy with my outfit so I added one of my favorite Dolce & Gabbana clutches for a spring pop. This bag is a few years old but it is definitely one of my favorite pieces. I love pulling it out every spring and summer and implementing it into my wardrobe. I bought it a time in my life when I was able to splurge just a little easier so I relish in the fact that I am still able to carry it around! For my other accessories I added a bright pop with my earrings and stayed classic with a pair of aviators.

I definitely wanted my last look to be a dress. I feel like with a dress I can achieve a sense of edginess while staying with the charm and whimsy of a typical “Megan” outfit. To achieve this I paired a chic leopard print dress with some of my cutest accessories. In my opinion, tassels are always a good choice so I paired one of my favorite pairs of earrings with the cutest tassel handbag. I love the multi-colored tassel on the bags and how I can easily pair it with so many different outfits. It was a total steal and a great dupe for some of the other more expensive lines. For my shoes, I tried to pick a pair that mimicked the hardware of the jacket. I love the large, silver snaps and how they echo the silver hardware of the jacket. I really think it is the finishing touch to pull the entire outfit together.
