At least once a week my style coaching clients ask me 1 of 3 specific styling questions.
It got me to thinking that if my clients keep asking me these questions, then surely other women are wondering the SAME thing!
If you find yourself struggling knowing how...
...to make your skinny jeans + heels OR booties work...

I don't know, but I thought I'd share some of my favorite ways to stay comfy and cozy while waiting until I can (publicly) celebrate Christmas.
I watch the movie The Holiday over…Continue

Without having to break the bank, a pillow can infuse that pop of color or slyly add a subtle accent of texture, and take a space from being dull to dynamic. We couldn't be more thrilled to have Fort Worth's, Rebecca Atkinson and Kelley…Continue

Just today, I had a wonderful Style Coaching client ask me during her fall shopping session,
"Can I wear my white jeans after Labor Day?".
She was pointing towards her white Not Your Daughter's Jeans that we carefully selected for her this summer.
I giggled as I had just filmed my 'Style Secrets with Megan' video of the week on this exact topic!
So, if you are curious to know….

The Sunday before Labor Day, I counted no less than eight men wearing their seersucker suits in church, and later at brunch another four in seersucker pants and blazers. I had already worn my pink seersucker pants and blue seersucker sundress in the previous days (not at the same time). We all knew to get in one last fling with the cool fabric, because come Labor Day, the seersucker goes to the back of the closet just like the white shoes.…Continue

August and September (and even October in the south) can make getting dressed quite a challenge!
It's cool in the mornings, then hot in the afternoons...
…You feel like you have to have separate wardrobes- one for summer, one for transition, and then one for late fall (aka spend more $$)...
Overall, it can make you feel frustrated! And thus, take away from the joy and pleasure of getting dressed every morning (AND yes, it can be…Continue
