I guess I can try this again.

My last post on here was titled "Last Post Ever"

I lied. Apparently.

It's still a possibility that I will be starting over with a completely new blog somewhere... but I've been feeling the style blogging itch, so I decided to dip my toe back in with a few basic pictures. Please be kind, it's been awhile. haha

This is a pretty simple look, it's been so stinking hot here in Texas, I haven't been putting a whole lot into my style, anyway.
Not to mention the fact that I work at a gym, so I'm living in yoga pants, tennis shoes, ponytails... Not a lot I can do about that.
But, school is starting soon, and the weather will start calming down (hopefully), so I'll have a reason to put a little more thought into my clothes. But like I said, this is kind of a test-run. :)

The top I found at a local thrift store. I just so happened to show up on a day they were having a huge 50% off all clothing sale. So, I got this for about $1.50. Not too shabby.

The jeans came from the clearance rack at Target.
And the shoes are also from a clearance rack at DSW. Impulse buy. But I love them. :)

The necklace was also a clearance find (imagine that) at Charming Charlie, and the ring is an oldie from Forever 21. 
Oh, I am also wearing my FitBit Flex. Decided not to take it off just for the pictures, I wear it every day with every outfit, anyway. So I figured it made sense to just leave it. I'll be doing a post regarding activity and calorie trackers. So, you can be on the lookout for that, as well. :)

Okay, I thank you for indulging me, but I have a ton of housework to do.
Time to crank some Spice Girls (I heard Spice World is now streaming on Netflix!) and get to work!!

If you're still out there..

I've moved! come see me at Somewhat Stylish from now on. :) New year, new blog! I have one post up, and more to follow today. I'm going to leave this one up for a while for people to browse through, but after this, I will no longer be posting here. Thank you, and happy new year.

A Pretty Pattern and Lots of Brown...

 First of all; I know what you're thinking. ANOTHER indoor picture session? Yes, you must endure my non-decorated wall for now. It's just the perfect spot for me right now.. Taking outfit photos by yourself in an apartment community is much more terrifying than I would have thought. There are way too many people out and about at all times, and I'm an awkward person. So unless I were to have Douglas with me, taking the pictures.. I wouldn't want to be out in public at the moment. Maybe soon I will get brave enough. Or maybe I will finally put a picture up right there or something, and you would appreciate it more. :)
Either way, right across from me are two big windows that let in lots of natural light, it's just the perfect spot for right now.
 Also, you're probably thinking that I should figure out something different to do with my arms once in awhile.. I'll work on it. haha.
So, anyway. I've been so drawn to black lately for some reason, that I forgot all about Fall's other favorite neutral: Brown! How did that happen? I don't know. Probably because I don't own even one pair of brown boots. It's true. And sad. Donate to my brown boots fund??? I did pull these neat little heels out of the trunk of my car (literally) to match with my outfit instead, though.

I'm not normally a heels person. I really wish I was, but my feet just cannot handle them. I'm actually wearing my house shoe moccasins right now instead, and thinking seriously about wearing them to class in a minute. The walk to and from my car earlier already killed me. Probably doesn't help that I have an extra 50 pounds on my back from my bag containing my laptop, books, folders, etc. I just love being a college student. :) haha. But I really like the texture of the shoes juxtaposed with the print of the dress, and the way they match the color of my tights perfectly. I was worried that would look a little weird, but I really love it.

Blah Blah.. red lipstick again.. blah blah.. hair needs a cut.. here's a necklace you've seen before. :) 

 Everything except my necklace and tights were thrifted.. The necklace is from Forever 21, and my tights are Vera Wang for Kohl's. I got them both a couple of years ago. :)

So one last ramble-y paragraph before I go.. Who's going to see Breaking Dawn at midnight?! Not me. :( I am going tomorrow evening after getting some school stuff done, though. I'm ridiculously excited.. but I will keep my less than enthusiastic opinions about Kristin Stewart to myself.. for now..
However, I will not be seeing Douglas at all tomorrow, pretty much.. so we're going out for a late date to a different movie tonight after my next class lets out. I'm pretty excited about that. Have a great night everyone!

Floral: From Summer to Fall

Earlier in the summer I bought this cute little dress, and I wore it almost every day. It's lightweight, comfortable, has great colors! I mean, I wore it all.the.time. I just wasn't blogging, then.. so I don't have any other pictures of it. haha. Anyway, I love it so much, I can't not wear it now that it's getting cooler. So I did what I've been doing for the last couple of weeks: added tights and a light cardigan, along with some new boots. :) New favorite outfit? Possibly. I didn't wear twice in one week, or anything.. 

You might remember this sweet little belt from posts past.. I got it last year at Christmas from one of Douglas' sisters. :) They already knew me so well. haha. I figured the butterfly fit right in with the floral, and since it gets dark so early now, I'm definitely not ready to give up color! The purple tights brought out all the right colors in this dress. I just love it! 

Also, I have been addicted to red lipstick. It might be an issue. But I might not care. And I've been going waayyy light on the accessories end.. I'm just.. not that into them right now. Plus, with the ruffled neck line I always feel weird about adding on a necklace. Maybe it's just me? 

And then... the boots. I love love love these boots! I got A's on my first three tests (now five!!) in school this semester, so I decided to treat myself.. I found these bad boys at Ross on sale for EIGHT DOLLARS. How is that even possible?? I've already gotten so much wear out of them.. they go with everything! Best purchase of the year, so far. If I end the semester with a 4.0 I'm buying myself a whole new outfit. :) One from a regular store, not the thrift store.. that's big for me! haha. Anyway..

Kind of Dressed...

Hey, there. You thought I was gone forever. Well, I have never been very good at keeping up with this thing, but I'm gonna give it another go. :) While I've been not blogging.. I have been getting dressed, kind of. I've mostly been recycling old outfits that have already been posted here and I know work already. So.. I've been lazy. Unimaginative I guess you could say. But I'm bored with that, and I'm ready to start shaking things up again. :)

But I'm getting a slow start... haha.
 This kind of thing has been my go-to outfit. A dress, some tights (it's finally getting a bit chilly here in Texas), and some sort of jacket, cardigan, something. I don't have much time to think about it, really.. I work all the time, and when I'm not working.. I'm in school. But I use school as an excuse to get dressed up, so I just have to get back into the habit of taking time for pictures before heading out, I guess. :)

I will maybe find a more exciting backdrop for my photos sometime soon, until then.. get used to my blank wall. :) 
Oh, but now that we're in this new apartment I plan on having some decorating posts, AND... Here's my biggest news.. 
Douglas and I are engaged! :D!!! My ring is being resized right now, though.. so that's why I'm not showing it off in the pictures today. haha. We will be waiting awhile before the wedding, but I can start throwing in some wedding ideas here and there now, as well. :) I'm really excited about all of these new changes and what it will mean for this blog. I hope to be able to grow as a blogger and really throw my passion into this. 

Anyway! Another picture or two before I go... These are our Halloween costumes.. Can you guess who we were??

5 points to the correct person... :)
Also.. here is my amateur engagement photo I talked Douglas into taking with me..

Oh, I am one happy girl. <3

Day Late, A Dollar Short..

So, there have been a lot of changes in my life recently. Everything except for moving, bills, work and school has been put on the back burner. But yes, a lot of exciting changes! First of all, I apologize for the weird, indoor pictures as my return to blogging.. but they were taken inside of my new apartment that the boyfriend and I have moved into together. :) I really love it, and I was thinking about doing a few design posts when I actually get around to decorating this place. That won't be for a while, though.. and kind of depends on some other stuff that I'm going to go into later.. anyway!
So, the move.. buying a washer and dryer (and new laptop! yay!), working constantly, enrolling in school... Busy Busy Busy! My first class is tomorrow. I'm excited, and nervous. It's crazy.

So, enough about my weird life.. let's get back to bloggy stuff. hah. So, I curled my hair.. which I hardly ever do because it takes so stinkin' long! And, unless I use about a pound of hairspray, it never stays curled very long. But I really like the way it looked. So I was glad I spent the time on it. :) I'm also glad I finally got pictures of this outfit. My birthday was back in June, and Douglas took me for a very special date the day before (because we worked on my bday). There's a little place called Golightly's Antiques that has this cute little tea room in the back. And he had surprised me with a brunch that was all set up when we got there. :) It was the sweetest thing, and I cried pretty much all through the brunch..

But anyway. haha. After we ate we walked around and looked at all the neat stuff. We found this necklace that's a pocketwatch with a rose on it, which is my name, so I obviously love them. Douglas bought it for me, and then I found this beautiful vintage, gauzy skirt. It's so flowy and soft. I love it.

Okay, one last thing.. I've been seriously thinking about switching things up. I like the name "Megan Loves" for my blog, because although This is mostly a style blog, I feel like it gives me the freedom to write about anything that I love. And I have so many ideas, from decorating posts, to nutrition (what I'm going to school for) and fitness, make up, hair, crafts, etc. I just feel like it's a kind of boring name. I didn't really put a whole lot of thought into it before just jumping in. I feel like if I were to start over with a new name and everything, that I'm not so far into this, that it wouldn't be a terrible thing for me to do right now. So, I'm taking suggestions! I'm thinking of either thinking up a nother name that can be all encompassing, or.. starting a couple of different blogs with specific titles and pertaining to only one or two things each. What sounds like the best idea? I need help here, ladies! haha.
