floral + stripes


top: Target, clearance / skirt: Forever 21 / shoe: Shoemint {won in a giveaway} / bracelet: Groopdealz

these.shoes.
i'm completely obsessed with them.
aren't they amaaazzzzziiiinnngggg????
i was so SO excited when i found out i won a shop credit to Shoemint (plus first time customer discount, what whaaat!!) because i knew i needed these shoes in my life.
too bad they gave me THE WORST blisters on Mother's Day Sunday because they weren't broken in yet. and chasing a toddler around the church with non-broken in shoes that have a super high heel = insanely bad & painful idea.
but i refused to let the blisters hold be back.
i felt fabulous i tell you. fabulous!! 

on another note...
i was so good about scheduling posts last week while i was away but have not been a good blogger now that i'm actually home.
i do have a good excuse though i think...
Elijah and i have had appointments every day this week plus my parents are still visiting until the end of next week. and to top off all that craziness, Adam is working full-time PLUS studying like a mad man for his board exams next week and we hardly see him [slash] if-my-parents-weren't-here-i-would-be-a-single-mother.
so we are all feeling all sorts of crazy-pants/insane/want-to-scream-and-cry over here.

which means keeping up this space and answering emails has gone down the drain.
i do have some good stories to share though!

i miss it though. i feel very empty without my writing time each day.
it's weird.

hopefully soon life will get back to normal and Elijah and i will see our daddy again and the summer will be as fun and carefree as it's supposed to be.

but not until next week is over...
BAAAH!!!
{my going crazy sound :)}



i really do appreciate your emails and comments though and i'm so sorry i've been distant.
i promise i read every single one of them and will reply to them soon enough.
thank you for your patience this week!

I am always so afraid to mix patterns, but you are so fearless about it. One of these days I'm going to put together a Megan-inspired outfit!!

You look seriously AMAZING. One of my favorite outfit posts. Can I do anything to help you? I was about to text you. I think Adam/your parents need to watch Elijah so we can go play and be awesome. Love you.

I just have to say that especially in that last picture, your calves look amazing. Haha. Maybe a funny thing to notice, but I couldn't help it!

Emmy Barnes said...

Those shoes are fierce honey! I love them. Back in my heel wearing days I remembered walking around in sky high heels that were so cute but often left me with sore feet at the end of the day. But what the heck right, its all in the name of beauty.

I LOVE me some good pattern mixing! You look amazing! I bought some new heels a few weeks ago and wore them to work, after 8 hours in them I was wishing I had broken them in first, but they were just so cute!

LOVE that top! I actually just did a floral and stripes combo today as well, except with stripes on top and floral on the bottom, haha. Just found your blog, and I'm glad I did! :)

Hi Megan,

Just found your blog from Watch Out For The W linkup. I browsed around and I fell in love! It's always so refreshing to see mothers who still make the time to look like they care about how they look, without too much fussing and money! Actually I'm copying this flower and black n white combo for church this evening!
I'm following your via bloglovin now. Please visit my blog when you have the time, and maybe even follow back if you happen to like my posts. :)
