Let’s just say this was right up our alley!

Same dress, different outfit

We’re still around and kickin’! Sometimes life catches up with us, but we’re still here to share our fashion tips with you!

I always love wearing an article of clothing a million different ways. Last week I was hanging out with some friends during the day followed by a charity event in the evening. I didn’t have time to go home in between, so I picked an outfit I could wear all day. During the day, I wore a short crop top over this Forever 21 dress with a pair of flat sandals. And when evening came, I took off the top, jewelled it up and threw on a pair of red heels. None of my friends believed it was the same dress that I was wearing earlier. Amazing how accessories can change the whole look! Best plan ever, when you are short on time!!!

I love colour, especially bright colours – so when we finally had some gorgeous weather over the weekend, I couldn’t wait to wear this neon yellow tank I purchased a few weeks ago. It went perfectly with my black BCBG maxi skirt, and mixed with turquoise and gold accessories. Hope you all have a bright and shinning day!

Gimmie some of that Chambray

A great staple this spring and summer is a chambray shirt. It’s a shirt that allows you to be as creative as you want and almost goes with anything in your closet. You can easily dress it down as a light jacket or wear it with a maxi skirt and statement necklace for a more dressed up look! How do you wear your chambray?

American Apparel has the greatest basics (and if you hadn’t noticed, I, being Megan, tend to dress on simplicity). Need a plain shirt? Crop tops? body suits? body con dresses? All your spandex-y needs in one store! I recently bought their crop tee in a black and white stripe pattern, and I haven’t been able to NOT wear it with like, everything I own — seriously. I can be office casual, or city chic and everything inbetween.

I have such a busy work schedule, that I often find myself with no time to go home and change if I have evening plans. Instead I always keep a spare set of jeans in the car just in case! Yesterday for work I wore a cream blazer, red pencil skirt and a cute leather and lace jacket. I then had a hockey game to go to later that evening. I didn’t have time to go home and throw on some “hockey game clothes” and thought a red pencil skirt might be a tad cold! Luckily I had a pair of jeans that I switched into, and had a perfect new outfit!

As I’m uploading these photos, I’m trying to figure out what to say about these outfits. Really it’s just what I wear everyday — sweet and simple. I like to think I dress with one object in mind that I want to stand out, and base my outfit on that. Today, I went with my red shoes that I adore, paring it with my old granny sweater (as my friend calls it) and cherry blossom skirt to go for the full “red” theme. The next outfit, I really wanted to showcase a new necklace I bought from Forever 21. I’m so drawn to triangles these days it’s nuts. Anyways, to make sure the necklace stood out, I wore a very plain simple long white tee (that has a wicked gold zipper in the back) and a pair of tights. Something toned down in order for what I want to be seen first, IS seen first! I think a necklace is a great centerpiece for any outfit!

I think the moral of this post is, even thought the “t-shirt” is what is the same in both outfits, it’s not the stand-out part to either. I’ve used it to make other features of my outfits pop!
