Happy Tuesday, loves! LOFT is currently having a major sale, with an extra 70% off certain sale items. I've even found a couple things on sale for $5 and some change... insane! I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces from the sale. If you see something you like, I'd snag it quick because some of the pieces I currently have in my cart have already sold out. Happy shopping! (Some pieces are automatically discounted, but use code 'EXTRA' at checkout for an additional discount on most items.)
XOXO MEGAN KRISTINE.
Happy Friday Eve, guys! I wanted to pop in really quick and share a few of my favorite sweaters - all under $100 (most under $50)! Keeping it short & sweet today, but I hope you all finish the week out on a positive note! And treat yourself ;)
XOXO MEGAN KRISTINE.

We made it through Monday, guys! I'm not going to lie, after being out sick last week for over 2 days and then having the weekend, it was tough to get back into the groove of things yesterday. Luckily, I made it without any bumps in the road and I ended Monday night with a nice little lounge session on the couch full of cuddles and more trash reality television than I'm willing to admit. Anyone else record everything and then binge it all at once?! I'm guilty.
Call me crazy, but I recently decided to give up (almost completely) drinking so much caffeine, and I will say, it's been harder than it sounds. For a coffee drinker like me, this came along with cravings, grogginess and a pretty painful headache. I've gone just about a week and I'm starting to feel a little better. And I still treat myself to a cup from Starbucks every now and then, so that helps. I decided to do this because I was becoming truly dependent on caffeine to get me through the day. I woke up, had a giant cup. Got to the office, had another. Then one more after lunch and even sometimes when I got home from work. It was getting a little ridiculous and I was getting to the point where I couldn't really function without it. So, I decided to go cold turkey on the caffeine. Before I stopped drinking coffee, I was obsessing over Americanos with almond milk and cinnamon dulce syrup (thanks to my bestie!), so my go-to order is now a decaf with almond milk and cinnamon dulce syrup - not bad and has at least 10x less the caffeine.
So I know it used to be a rule that "you can't wear black and brown together", and my husband still abides by that rule, but this is another one of my favorite rules to break. (Wearing white in winter is another favorite - which you can see how I styled HERE and HERE). If you've been following along for a while, you know I adore my neutrals, and black and brown is such an easy way to mix your neutrals and textures! I love pairing an all black outfit with a pop of brown, as I did with this look, or vice versa. I do like to make sure I balance the look out, though. For example, I'm wearing all black here, and I chose to wear my thigh high boots, which are brown. So I added a scarf (similar here), which incorporates brown and black, to balance out the look. If my shoes are one color, I like to add a piece like statement earrings, a watch or necklace or a scarf so that it balances out. I know not everyone cares about this, but it's something that makes me feel more put together overall.
I have worn these boots nonstop since the day they showed up on my doorstep. I love them! I'm sure you've heard me rant about them previously, so I'll just let them speak for themselves and talk sizing. I'm normally a size 7.5 or 8 in shoes, and I ordered a size 38. (PS- they are currently 30% off with code: CLASSIC)!
And as always, you can use code MEGANKRISTINE15 for $15 off your watch or sunglass purchase at MVMT.com! I just got some new goodies in the mail today so stay tuned for those! ;)
XOXO MEGAN KRISTINE.

Happy Tuesday, loves!
I hope everyone is staying warm & safe during this little ice storm that has hit Texas. I swear, everyone I know had a snow day today except DFW! I woke up late last night to let the pups out and it was sleeting, so I was thinking the roads may be bad this morning, but they weren't at all. It's just miserably cold (low of 12 degrees..whaattt?!) and this Texas gal doesn't do cold. Summer, where are you?! #DreamingOfWarmerPlaces #INeedAVacay
This past weekend, my best friend, Jordan, and her husband came into town, and we had the best time! We didn't have anything in particular planned out for the weekend, but it was so nice to just relax and play it by ear. The guys normally do their own thing when they're together, so we decided to have a total girls day full of coffee, manicures and shopping! It was the best and I wish they lived closer so we could do it more often. Why can't all my favorite people just live in the same town?!
So this sweater is one of my favorite purchases, by far, this season. I wear it at least once a week, and most of the time more like 2-3 times a week (guilty). To be honest, I'm actually wearing it right now as I write this blog post... it's bad.. haha! I'm sure Carl is probably tired of seeing me in it, and wondering why I have so many other articles of clothing in my closet while I choose to obsess over 2-3 pieces/outfit repeat weekly, but oh well. It's currently on sale for $12.99! Unfortunately, it's sold out in the camel color, but it's available in pink, navy and gray. I am wearing a size small, for reference.
Can we take a second to talk about these shoes?! They are such a good dupe for these Valentino pumps, but at a much more affordable price point. At just $70, they are literally $1,000 cheaper. So if you love the designer look, but don't want to break the bank, this pair is perfect! I love pairing them with denim or white jeans to dress up my look a little, but they also go perfectly with just about any dress or skirt you may have in your closet. Such a good pair to have, and the neutral shade goes well with everything. They also come in black, red, pink and denim, and they run true to size!
On another note, I have been focusing more on how I want to style our home lately, and I am so excited that this table is currently on sale ($200 off!!)! Luckily, Carl even likes it, so I think I'm going to purchase this for our breakfast nook area and add some pretty little tufted chairs and a cool light fixture above. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I'm not the best at finding furniture and home decor. I am the most indecisive person EVER when it comes to our home. You can view my recent home purchases and my home decor inspo here!
