What I’m Wearing
* Aztec dress {purchase post} …from Ruche …seen here
* Oversized short sleeve cardiganVictoria’s Secret …seen here
* Pour La Victoire Women’s Fanny Open-toe Platform …seen here
* DIY gold chain/tassel earrings
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunnies …although I’m dying for THESE!

If you caught my tweet this morning you’d know that it’s going to be about 100 degrees today – er, all week, and I’m kind of running out of creative ideas for my summer wardrobe. On the other hand, I know that halfway into winter I’m going to burn out on sweaters and tights and leggings and jackets. It’s a catch-22 really.

* Hair: wet. French braided the top …then finished it with a regular braid that fell to the side. Love it in the bottom shot …not so much in the top.

Heroes was fairly exciting last night …thoughts?

. . .but it postpones Gossip Girl an hour -boo. Wasn’t GG on at 8pm last season? I distinctly recall being able to watch GG upstairs at 8 then running downstairs to catch Heroes at 9pm with husband. Gossip Girl, why you play me like that?

* I still can’t stop thinking about how pretty Jennifer Love Hewitt looked at the Emmys …her hair was glorious! I loved how her stylist pinned her twists right by her ear instead of in the back …I also may or may not have started watching Ghost Whisperer yesterday afternoon whilst finishing a DIY …it was kinda good ;)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. This dress is a great color for you and I really like the print. I love your hair though. You are so good at styling it. Please come do my hair for me, pretty please? I like it in the last photo best also.

    I love the dress and your hair. I am confused on how you did the french braid though? I don’t get how it is styled in the front and still put into a braid?
    Anyways, sorry about the heat. I am so over summer clothes too and am so ready for the cool breeze of fall.

    Do you know what I love the most about you, Maegan?
    It’s the fact that you can create beautiful outfits using the same accesoires/shoes over and over again.
    There are so many fashion blogs, where people would rather die that showing the same pair of shoes or a bag more that once. But you keep it real by dressing originally and cool with the amount of clothes a normal person has in her closet!

    Thank you for that and thank you for your wonderful blog!

    Love, Anna :)

    Uh, yeah. Ghost Whisperer is my guilty pleasure. I hate to admit it. Mostly because it’s on at 7pm on Fridays, which means I am watching Ghost Whisperer at 7pm on a Friday night… kinda sad. Her outfits, while sometimes a tad revealing, are awesome. I think most of them are vintage too. Plus I love the whole ghosts, romance, mystery and danger part of it :)

    P.S. I really love this dress :)

    Yes GG was at 9 last season and I love Ghost Whisperer – its been part of my dvr schedule for a few seasons now. The story of her husband on that show is really good.

    So jealous of you being able to wear this as a dress! I bought it MONTHS ago and still haven’t worn it because it’s too tarty on me. Looks amazing on you!
    I just bought me first pair of skinny black jeans so maybe I’ll try it with that?

    You look cute. They need to make that dress in a 20 so I can buy one..oh wellz. Heroes was a bore. I found myself sighing repeatedly, and asking my husband “I mean what are they talking about…I mean really!!!??!!” “who is writing this dribble…” “Oh so Claire is just going to jump out the dorm room window on her busy college campus that is fairly well lit…” Dembness. I cant wait for LOST in January…Oh but Im going to still watch Heroes.

    Your hair looks awesome in all the pictures. I love how braids are so easy but make any hairdo look so much more finished.

    And I am having the same problem. It has been warm here too and I am getting really tired of my summer wardrobe. Love this dress though!
