Happy Monday, friends! I’ve been sharing my daily looks over on Instagram It has been so motivating, and I wanted to put my weekly looks in one place for you. I’ve basically challenged myself to get dressed most days, because I have found that I feel my best when I make an effort to look nice, even if most days I am either working from home, or out and about with my kids and husband running errands or going to endless sports practices;)
I’ve been documenting my daily looks on video, and adding them into my Shop My Looks page here each day. You can click on each picture there and there are links to each piece I am wearing. These are truly outfits I am wearing in my real life, and in real-time.
If you are looking for even more style inspo, I have a weekly style newsletter that goes out every Sunday morning and it is probably my favorite thing to write right now. Come join the fun!
Sizing references! I am 5’5″ tall, and wear a size 4-6 in pants, a small in tops, and a size 4 in dresses. I will let you know under each pic how something fits and the sizes I chose.
Weekly Looks December//Week 3
Let’s chat Weekly Looks, and then I’ll get into my list fo fave things I bought this year. I keep seeing this on the internet and I love reading them and seeing what others have loved.
* It takes a lot of time to research, link, and write detailed newsletters + posts, and I DO get a commission if you buy something from a link I give you. That being said, some stores are harder to get this commission from. I just ask, if you love something I suggest from Target, I appreciate if you buy through a link I give you and either ship it to store or to your home. That is how I get paid! I appreciate any thing you can do to help me continue to create content for you that helps and inspires you!
I now have this sweater in two colors and I love it! It has been on sale for about a month or so and I just noticed it is sold out. Boo. Here is a similar option! I wear a size small in this brand, it is delightfully oversized. And would you be surprised if I told you these were pull on pants with an elastic waistband?! They are so comfortable and give that jean look with the feel of wearing leggings. Perfect for the holidays and maybe some extra treats! They are true to size!
About a month ago I heard of this online brand called Dressed in Lala and then I ordered some things over the Black Friday week and I was BLOWN AWAY. The quality of everything I bought is amazing, and I love the vibe of her online shop. She releases new things every Friday and some things sell fast. I loved the rainbow stripes of this sweater!! I am wearing a medium and love the size (though I could have been fine in the small.) I wore this to my son’s class party this past week;) These non ripped, button up jeans from Madewell are also so, so good. I picked these up during this sales season and love that these are a bit “fancier” than my ripped ones. They stretch and feel like leggings and are so comfortable! I followed reviews and got a size down and they are perfect.
I wore this to go see The Nutcracker with my daughter last weekend! I have had this kimono forever, but here is a similar option. I also have this jumpsuit in two colors. It is the perfect thing to wear to just about anything, and I love that it is different than a dress! It is true to my dress size, it is a size 4 and fits great. Plus, it has pockets!
This is where you’ll start to see how much I love shopping at Dressed in Lala…. How cute is this tie dye sweatshirt?! It is perfectly oversized (I am in a medium), and has a beautiful sleeve detail.
And one more goodie from Dressed in Lala;) I LOVED the print on this dress/tunic and wore it to my husband’s casual work party last weekend. I bough a medium but should have gotten the small, it is generous in size. I paired it with jeans and boots, but it would also look cute with faux leather leggings and heels!
Let’s get into some of my fave things I purchased this year! I’ll break them up into a couple of categories, and tried to keep it minimal. One of my goals in this next year is to buy LESS, and be more INTENTIONAL. It is fun to see what I really loved and wore/used.
I think you all know how much I love and wear my jeans almost daily, I prefer them to leggings!
Madewell ripped skinny jeans/Curvy: These are the best! Loved the ripped knees, the faded black color, and the fit that is good for hourglass figures. I wear my normal size 28 in these.
Old Navy straight leg jeans: a new to me style that made me like Old Navy jeans again! The perfect color and fit.
American Eagle Tomgirl jeans: I wore these for about 6 months straight and were my best seller for months. They fit true to size and loosen up a lot with wear.
Fave Amazon finds!
Floral dress: I have worn this dress multiple times since this summer, I wear a size medium. My daughter also has it in the red color in a size XS!
Off the shoulder lace dress: The quality of this dress is GORGEOUS, especially for the price! I have the size medium but the small would have been fine.
Workout tops: This is the only workout top I wear, I think I own 9 of them. All of my friends at CrossFit wear them, too! I wear the size small.
Travel toiletry bag: I love this travel bag! It has been all over the place with me this year and is the perfect size.
Packing cubes: These are a GAME CHANGER. I will not travel without them.
Self tanning mitts: The best thing to apply self tanner with! It smoothes it on so well with no streaks.
Louis Vuitton knock off wallet: I use this wallet everyday, and love that it gives the designer vibe from afar (without stealing the logo…)
Slippers: These are iunder the tree for me, from me…lol
Soft blanket: Such a beautiful, soft blanket! I have it in pink.
And not from Amazon, but this JC Penney robe is everything!!!
Massager: This is new to be as of last week and it so good! If you get sore in your back or neck, this will change your life. I have used it daily and it has helped me so much to loosen up a bit.
Keurig w/milk frother: I replaced my old Keurig with this and it is amazing! I love the attached milk frother and that there are so many options to make different beverages.
If you have followed me for awhile you know how much I love these bracelets! I wear one almost daily and have quite a collection. I always snag them during their sales, which they have quite a few of.
Magnetic bracelet: This is fun because it has the look of multiple bracelets, but attaches with a magnet in the back!
Pearl bracelet: The one I ear most often and goes with everything.
Skull bracelet: I just got this one and I love the edginess of it!
Ombre crystal bracelet: This one is gorgeous and sparkly and good for day or night.
Turquoise bracelet: I love the colors in this, I wear it the most in the summertime.
No pictures of these lol;)
Strapless: I wear this with my strapless or off the shoulder tops and dresses! I wear a medium/
Lace bralette: I own this in black and white and it is so pretty, I never mind if it peeks out of my clothes. I wear a size medium and my bra size is a 34D.
Halter style bralette: I own this in black and blush in a size medium!
Slipshorts: I wear these under tight dresses or shorter dresses! They aren’t like Spanx, though they do smooth a little. They just give a bit more coverage and take away panty lines.
I have been wearing QVC jewlery for about ten years now, I almost never wear my real wedding set! I talked about my favorites in my Insta-strories last week and showed my faves! I saved in in highlights if you want to see…@meaganrigney
Cushion cut ring: this is a showstopper and is really, really fun to wear. I love that I can pick out styles that I could never afford in real life;)
Set of five faux diamonique studs: I wear two of these in my second and third ear piercing daily, and gave two away to teachers last year. My daughter has the other one. These are great because you never have to worry about losing real diamonds.
3 ring stack: I love that you can wear this stack with wedding rings, or just mix and match.
Vintage looking ring: I have worn this as my engagemetn ring for about 6 months now. The details on it are gorgeous.
