Win A Pair Of Jeans From Old Navy

Being that it's my birthday, I thought what better way to celebrate than to give a pair free jeans away! Old Navy sent over a 'free pair of jeans' voucher a ways back and I immediately thought since fall is right around the corner, one of you are bound to need a pair of jeans! Right? So one of you will get a pair of jeans of your choice courtesy of Old Navy and myself. And if you haven't had the chance to try Old Navy jeans just yet, you're in for a treat, they've been my jean of choice since 2006, even above my trusted D&G's.

Here's How To Win
1. Tell me what jeans you'd pick if you won!

2. Follow via GFC, Bloglovin', Twitter and/or Facebook
3. Tweet "I just entered to win a pair of @oldnavy jeans from @meganfrugalista"

All of which must be done by Friday October 7th at 11am EST. 

Birthday Stripes

I don't think there's any other stripe out there that says "I like to party" like Missoni, am I right? And you've might've guessed that it's my birthday, the big 2-5, which isn't all that big in reality. What excitement comes with 25 aside from being closer to 30, being able to rent cars? Whooo, let's break out the good stuff for that milestone...and rent a compact.
(and this next picture/look completely coincides with that last sarcastic statement)
 And what better way to celebrate my birthday than wear maxi dress, and some serious party stripes, Target, ehm, Missoni styled. Have a great weekend, xox!

Spot The Steal - Alexander McQueen Skull Scarves

I've been lusting after a McQueen inspired skull scarf for months now, and since fall is practically here already I've been on the hunt. Luckily I spotted 2 'inspired' by scarves for under $20, because you won't see me flipping a $300 scarf bill in the near future.

Ivory Towers

Since snagging this dress I've been craving more and more flowing (sheer) chiffon shift's for fall, I'm counting down the day until I can throw on a pair of opaque tights and booties under this and call it a day. Until then I'll just belt it and get more wear out of my strappy metallic sandals.

It looks like the big 2-5 has officially creeped up on me, I'll be a whole year older tomorrow. And in honor of such, one of you will be getting a free pair of jeans...Stay Tuned!

Printable Layering

 Ah, Autumn has arrived down here in the 'tropics', and though it's not completely cooled down I can feel it in the breeze and see it the warm tones of the sun. With that being said, it's time to bring my vests and jeans  out for another go around.

What are you excited about for Fall?

Covered Up

This past week, was spend on and off at the beach condo. Now if I had a choice on whether I would have like to spend more time at the beach or moving, we would've had a clear winner. Because who doesn't want to sit under an umbrella and look at the glass flat water? Between trips to the beach and pool, I spent the better half of my time in a few cover up pieces. Love?

What To Wear: Studded Harness Booties

Hi Megan, 
This Fall Staple is proving hard to find. Ankle boots are everywhere but too pointy, too long, too embellished, etc. Can you help find me something similar to this?
- In Search Of The Perfect Staple

You were right, it was a tricky staple to find but I found a few ankle booties that may just fit the bill, and by bill I mean under $60! All this studded ankle bootie talk has me adding these to my lust list...

5 O'clock Shadow

There are times where I just decide to mix as many prints as I can and just 'wing' it. Sometimes it's a fail and sometimes it's like so...

Add a jacket, maybe even replace the shoes with booties and we're talking fall wardrobe ideas, ladies.

Warm Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let's be real, who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie? (Ok, perhaps more people than I'd like to admit...)

4. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden colored.  Cool on wire rack.
  • Enjoy. 

Bright and Striped

We're long overdue for an outfit post, so I figured I'd dress my beach cover up with a belt and pumps for a quick sit down dinner. (Who's loving my matching rainbow in the top left background?)
