Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway

Hey everyone! Megan here. Sorry I've been so absent lately. I hope to make it up to you by letting you know that there's an amazing giveaway hosted by my friend AV on Long Distance Loving.

Lilly Pulitzer has a fabulous new collection and I've made a little inspiration board showing you a few of my favorite pieces. I'm so into the coral hanging from the necklace below. And they have earrings and bracelets that match. And I'm loving the striped dress and these lovely bangles.

The whole thing is just enough color and fun to brighten up these dark, chilly evenings!

Which are your favorite pieces?

Yellow There!

So, it's taken me a while to get into Colour Lovers, but now that I have I can honestly say that I love it almost as much as I love the color yellow.  What an underrated color with occasionally negative connotations (yellow fever, yellow journalism, mellow yellow)!!  Here's my palette of yellow and violet.  Adding violet to the mix tones down the intensity of the yellow in the same way that black does without being so bee-like.
I recently got this scarf from Target and I love it.  It's very soft and warm, and it brightens up my darker winter clothes with an autumnal pop of color.  At the same time it's not too overtly feminine and I really like that. 
These are some great yellow flats from Urban Outfitters, but I actually got this pair at Gabriel Brothers for $6.99.  They are a great departure from my everyday black flats.  And finally, the coup de grace of my yellow collection:

I found this gem at Blue Ridge Hospice in Purcellville, and it appears to be handmade in the early '60s (I would guess).  It fits like a dream and it only cost $12!  After some minor repairs it is ready to hit the bar tonight.   Here's a close up on the bow detail:
What's your favorite color to wear in fall accessories?  Is there one hue that makes you feel like a million bucks?  Any great vintage finds?  Let us know!

What We Wore: A Meeting at the Estate

What We Wore: A Meeting at the Estate

What We Wore: A Meeting at the Estate by est1839 featuring a paisley dress

Today at work we drove into to the lovely village of Middleburg to meet with several clients on their estates.  It's a pretty classy place, and it was one of the rare occasions that I get to dress for work!  I actually wore a purple paisley dress and black shoes, but this pumpkiny palette was too much for me to resist.  Plus I actually did recently purchase a pair of bright orange pants.  More on those later!

We Love Today // Indiana Jones Inspired

I found this outfit on pinterest & thought 'man, oh man! Indiana Jones is my favorite!'  I really like the idea of translating movie characters into outfit inspiration.  This wonderful tumblr has a great selection of not only Disney inspired outfits, but all around movie inspiration.  There is even an UP inspired wedding outfit.  I need to pin that to my wedding board!

I mean just look at that ring! It is so Indie like!

People will be yelling 'Dr. Jones! Dr. Jones!' at you while you rush through some underground maze on your way to an ancient (& totally uncalled for) ritual.  Don't forget to always grab your hat & have your bullwhip handy.  You never know what rare & ancient treasures you may find.

This outfit just screams Fall weather to me.  Pair this with a cardigan & you are Adventure Chic.  I totally know that Target has some really great satchels out right now.  I want to buy at least 10 of them but the shopping Gods know that I've been worshiping a bit too maybe I'll hold off.

Have you ever been outfit inspired by a movie? 
What looks have you taken from the big screen?

It's Time for Fall

It's been getting a bit chilly here in my part of town.  I've been busting out the sweaters & tights like it's nobody's business.  I've sworn not to miss cardigan opportunity & even need to invest in some sweater clips.  This type of weather is my fave! I love to be able to get all warm & snugly wherever I may be.  Here is some Fall snugly yumminess for your Friday afternoon:

I am going camping this weekend & I really wish I had a cute little sweater like the one with the hearts to keep me all snugly sitting by the fire.  It is a crochet pattern but I can totally see a DIY coming out of that to embellish that sweater you only wear on chilly fall mornings drinking coffee in your jammies.  (I have one, don't you?) If you don't have a coffee-in-your-jammies sweater, I suggest you head on down to your local thrift shop & pick one up.  Try the men's department.  Then hold on to it while I get back to you with a DIY.  You may even learn to crochet from it!

The orange bag is just the perfect pop of color for fall.  I love deep, rich colors like pumpkin & olive in the fall.  You can check out more fall fashion inspiration here.

So I hope you've pulled out the warm socks, cozy sweaters, & boots and enjoy because Winter will be here soon enough!

What are you doing for Fall?
Have you thought of a Halloween costume?

Happy Friday!

Showing off the limbs: Tight Style.

I have seriously been slacking on my posting lately….I drove all the way to Nashville to the opening of a show I had I piece in and then I got my debit card number stolen.  Not that it’s an excuse.  I missed you and I’m back.  With some awesome accessories. 
These tights from the Suicidal Shop are seriously to die for.  I love the edgy prints on them, and they would be a perfect pairing for a solid mini dress or a geometric patterned shirt.  Now how does one use a credit card to pay in euros?
