A Year in Review






2012 was the year I jumped headfirst into the blogging world. I've learned that blogging demands more commitment that I ever could have thought. I've learned that great friends can be made in this virtual world without even meeting face to face. I've learned that sometimes it's okay to let the whole world know you're not perfect. I've learned that laying on my closet floor can sometimes be the best creative process for outfit creating. And lastly, I've learned that Andy is one supportive, fantastic, camera man of a husband. Thank you to all of you for sticking it out with me, supporting me, and putting up with my crazy rants. See you in 2012!

Bundle Your Buns






I'm freezing my buns off here in cold Utah. I got this coat as an early Christmas present to myself...ha...and I've been wearing it non-stop. That's right, even to bed folks. Okaaaay... maybe not to bed, but until that last second until I climb into bed. It's called the cocoon coat and it sure makes me feel like a butterfly in the making....Okay maybe I took that a bit far. I just like the coat okay?

Menswear








This is a mens sweater. It went on sale and I just had to snatch it right off the racks. I grew up trying to wear my brothers clothes and now my husbands. I've decided I might as well just start shopping in the mens section. Heck, I might even change the name of my blog to Menswear with Megan. This could be the start of something great...

Daniel Boone





Vest: Nordstrom Rack, Sweater: H&M, Pants: J. Crew Factory, Boots: Michael Kors


I really love fur vests... I think they're fantastic, buuut I for some reason I just feel a bit silly when I wear mine. Maybe it's because it's too big and fluffy. Or maybe it's because it makes me feel like a fur trapper. Whatever the case, I've decided to channel my inner Daniel Boone and rock the fur. Next think you know I'll be wearing a squirrel on my head...

Holiday Season

It's the holiday season. I can't stop wearing tartan plaid. Whoop dee doo, dickerydock, I never forget to dress like a christmas sock.
Oh dear....I'm writing my posts in rhyme. That's what working retail during the holidays will do to a person.






Shirt: J. Crew Factory, Dress: J. Crew, Tights: H&M, Boots: Michael Kors

Gems




Photography by Azure B

I found these gems from my brothers wedding. We fake laugh for the camera, smile for the camera aaaand then we get down for the camera, or in our case, up. 

I'm so grateful for amazing siblings and for the amazing people they married. 
Cheers to family!!

Sorry I've been a little MIA around here lately. My New Years goal will be to be more consistent in my posts... hopefully it lasts longer than just January. My last final of my undergraduate career is today. Can I get a hallelujah?! Congraduations right?! Ha.

Hello ladies! Look at your elf on the shelf, now back to me, now back at your elf, now back to me.

Upper East Side






Jacket: F21 (old), Blouse: H&M (old), Pants, Shoes,


I used to watch Gossip Girl, but I stopped because it got a little too trashy for my taste. My favorite thing about it was the clothes. Oh I was obsessed with Blair's preppy and classic ensembles! I used to dream about sitting on the steps before school in my cute preppy uniform... Yeah right, the only thing I'd be doing on those steps is feeding the pigeons. Buuut I dream big. So here is me recreating my dream, and this is what I would wear.
