i have always loved color in my wardrobe. 
if you have been around me a lot, you know that i'm usually the brightest dressed person around. 
so when i found these wonderful, jewel-colored pants on clearance at Nordstrom Rack {and i had a gift card!} i knew they had to be mine. 

[Adam, of course, thinks they are so ridiculous. but that is the story of my life.] 

i have always been drawn to bright colors and funky styles and eclectic patterns, 
but after Elijah was born it took me over a year-and-a-half to feel comfortable in my own style again. and even then i have still struggled with getting back into my groove. 

i feel like i can finally say {almost 3 years later} that i found my style again. 
i want more color 
i want more flair 
i want more crazy, "Megan" pieces to mix and match all weird. 
and more clown shirts. 

and it feels good. 
i'm starting to really feel like Megan again,
not just playing the whole "fake it 'til you make it" card.

so, take that low self-esteem & anxiety! 
i just shoved some bright colors & fabulous shoes in your face! 
and it was awesome!!!

Because of the mobile version on my iPad the pants looked denim, but I clicked the pic to make it bigger and I totally love the color!! Adam should think he has a sexy wife, especially in this outfit. I love it! :-)

Yes color! Yes! It's amazing how good I feel when I put on everything colorful I own. I'm a big fan of wearing neon running clothes because it makes me feel like a champion, haha
