Instagram Round-Up

Hello from the Big Apple!  I’m so excited to be back in the city and have enjoyed every minute so far! The BH&G event was gorgeous and the best part was seeing all the friends I don’t get to see in person unless we get together at events like this.  Today, we’re heading out on a food tour and I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to that- especially the Italian fare!  Then, it’s onto a show and dinner before catching an early flight home tomorrow.  I will be sure to do a detailed recap of everything soon, but first I’ll probably need to sleep for a week!  #oldlady

Today, I’m doing something a little different and sharing a big round-up of Instagram favorites from the last month.  I like these everyday outfit shots because they are easy snaps out and about and don’t require getting all gussied up for a professional photo shoot.  I hope they give you inspiration for your own wardrobe!

For fit reference, keep in mind I’m super short, just 5’1, about 105 pounds.  I often wear petite or size down for the best fit for my frame, but I’m also busty (34D) with ‘athletic’ i.e. big legs, so that can be a challenging combo.

These jeans are a designer splurge but worth every penny!  I don’t know how they do it, but they make you look so super skinny and they make your legs look so long!  Both of which are miracles for me at 5’1 with bigger thighs for my size.  No wonder nearly 300 women gave them rave reviews!

This lightweight cardi that is similar to the old one I’m wearing here is perfect for that purpose.  It’s still thin enough that you won’t be dying in warmer temps, but you’ll still get that layered effect. It comes in tons of colors, including black/white stripe with a hi/low hem.

This is another great lightweight sweater cardigan with the cutest ruffle hem.  It’s nice and slim fitting through the waist with a darling ruffle at the end.  It looks great buttoned or unbuttoned, and dresses up well with a pair of heels!

As much as I love my skinnies, a good boyfriend jean is a must have! They are super comfortable and I like that this pair isn’t too baggy, but still shows your shape.

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I spend so much money on clothes since I found your blog… it’s just not fair! 😉 Seriously, I’m a curvier even shorter gal than you and so love following so I can see what works on women our height! Go busty short gals!

    1. Totally! It can be hard to find clothes that flatter our body types, so I’m really glad my blog is helpful for you Michelle! Thanks so much for reading!

  2. I just ordered and received the tie sleeve sweatshirt from Nordstrom. I love it and it fits well. I have one question. The tie sleeve are sewn in at the bottom of the wrist if this makes sense so when you tie them they are at the bottom(???) How do you tie them? The picture of you in it doesn’t look like that. Thanks so much.

  3. Ok I just added 8 things to my shopping cart! And your iced coffee looks SO good in those pics!! What is your order?

    1. Hi Megan! 😉 That iced coffee is Vietnamese Iced Coffee- it’s made with sweetened condensed milk- so good, but super strong and addicting! I realized I can’t drink it too late in the afternoon or I’ll be up all night!

  4. Thank you for searching high and low to find the Naturalizer Marianne slip-on sneaker! They are so cute on you, I had to have them too!
