My little Beauty and I have been obsessed with our Kortni Jeane swimmers since the day we ordered them. We absolutely love them. The other day I checked Kate out of school (whoops..) for a little pool day in our Kortni Jeane swimmers. The pool was 90 degrees and felt like heaven. We had so much fun splashing, doing tricks off the diving board, and racing from one end to the other, all while looking really cute because Kortni Jeane swimsuits are the best ever. They are absolutely darling, super unique, very flattering, and overall, they are a great price! Check out their site!!

As a side note, I love that I get to be a role model for my Katie Lynn. I feel so lucky to be her aunt (and the aunt to 5 other sweeties, if you follow me on snapchat: megricks, you know I’m obsessed with them). It’s so fun to have someone who wants to be just like you. She loves to dance, because I love to dance, she was so excited to come and watch my latest show (tour with CDT) and looked at me like I was a disney princess or something. When I was on Cougarettes it was even more applicable (limelight ya know?). She would come down onto the football field or basketball court after every game wearing her “cheerleading” outfit, poms included. It’s not every day you have a person in your life who looks up to you like that. I love her with my whole heart and I’m so so grateful to be her aunt. Plus it put’s a little pressure on me to be the best I can be, which I love. Like I said before, I hate being mediocre, she helps me to reach my potential. Cheers to being an auntie.

XO,

Happy Thursday, babes! Okay, funny story.. So a couple months ago the boy I was dating and I broke up. It’s actually hilarious because for some reason I was really sad about it (gotta love break ups!). SO, for Valentines day, my mom got me this trench coat from Surprise Kate Spade to help make me feel better (hahaha), I’ll take it. Her words were, “No more crying over that stupid boy” HA, I love my mom. Also, I love this trench. With the weather being so bipolar, it’s been the perfect spring jacket. Although it is no longer available, I found a few similar styles that are on sale (see above).

In other news, I discovered this amazing Australian based jewelry company, The Peach Box. My earrings and Roman numeral bracelet are from there. I Love. It is all so unique, such high quality, and really great prices. Check them out.

Xo,

Megs

Happy Valentines Day, My Loves!

Something I think is slightly comical (the older I get, the funnier it gets) is that each year, every girl (including myself) find so much satisfaction in having “A Valentine”. It is so fun to have someone who loves you, and cares deeply for you. However, we often look past all the amazing people that are already in our lives, constantly looking for the one person who will make you feel “special”. But truth is, those people are all around us. Yes, it is so much fun to have “A Valentine”, and yes you feel so lucky to have someone like that in your life, but at the same time, there doesn’t have to be just one valentine. Today is about love and about making others feel loved and important. There are soo many people who can do that for you. As part of the Love Yourself Campaign I have been asked to be a part of, I’ve realized that it really is so important to look at the good within yourself, to love yourself, before you can truly love anyone else. I LOVE Valentines Day. Partly, because I love receiving flowers (who ever thought a girl could feel so loved than to receive a big bouquet of flowers), Love the colors- pink, pink, and more pink, I love the joy that comes from truly loving a person and vice versa, and the opportunity it allows us to share our love with those around us. It’s true what they say, Love is the most powerful thing in the world. I love, love. I love all the incredible people in my life, And I love all of you lovelies, because without you, none of this would ever be possible. I hope you have so much fun dressing up in the best colors ever, get lots of flowers, eat tons of chocolate, and feel so much love. You, are all amazing and worth being loved. Always always remember that.

Thank you so so much for reading!!!

Happy Love day.

Hello Lovelies. Okay.. It is really cold. Holy Moly, it is hard for me to even get outside. I was just in Chicago, which you saw if you follow me on Instagram @megricks (stay tuned to find out the exciting reasons I was there).. anyways, it was so warm there. I mean for Chicago at least. They are having an amazingly good winter. We seriously lucked out big time.  We definitely picked the right year to go. Anyways, back to the weather here.. Lately, getting dressed has been a major struggle. I am getting kind of sick of my winter clothes and boots. I try to switch things up and make it different. But, I realized, sometimes you just have to get back to the classics. This pencil skirt has been on repeat this winter. I’ve paired it so many different ways (As seen Here) It’s a staple piece forsure. Also, It’s currently on sale, plus an additional 30% off right now. And to be honest, the great thing about a J.Crew Pencil skirt is that they stay in style for so long. It is a classic, and something you can keep wearing for years to come. Which, in my opinion, makes spending a little more money worth it, since it is such good quality you will be able to keep it longer than you would a cheaper item. So, I think a splurge every once in a while is totally okay.. especially when a it is a classic and it’s from J.Crews winter sale. Makes for a much cheaper “splurge”. If you needed justification, there it is (ha).

I also just wanted to say thank you to all my readers and followers. Your comments have been so kind and supportive and I couldn’t be more grateful. You guys are the best. Thanks for stopping by!

How was everyones Long Weekend? If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that I went skiing with my family this Martin Luther King Day. I love the few long weekends we have this time of year because they are the perfect opportunity to spend a little extra time with the ones  you love most. Those are the best kind of days. I am slightly obsessed with my family. Any day I get to spend with my family is a day well spent, in my opinion. So grateful to have them. I’ve been so blessed with such an amazing fam and I am so grateful I get to spend forever with them. Such a happy thought.

In other news.. This has been one of my favorite outfits this winter season. I Especially loved this combo over the holiday season. But, the great thing about this skirt is that it can be worn in multiple ways and makes for the perfect stand out, dressy (and of course classy) outfit.  Plus, the other great thing about this skirt is that it is on sale at J.Crew with an additional 40% off!!! I just ordered a few new goodies myself and they were all such an incredible price. Can’t wait to share those new items with you. But, until then, hurry over and shop the sale before it ends.

So grateful for all you amazing readers. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello and Happy New Year (even though its already the 12th..)! For my first post of 2016 I wanted to share my New Years Eve look. You can never go wrong with a little black dress, no matter what age or occasion. I think every girl needs an LBD. They are absolutely timeless, chic and oh so flattering. I found this dress at Anthropologie in New York last month. It was love at first sight. I like how different it is and that it’s a little bit edgy on top but classy and cute on bottom. It could also be worn in so many different ways which is the best part about it. That’s actually the great think about any dress really, that they can be worn 100 different ways. Dressed up or down, you’ll always have a winning outfit.

As a side note: I am so excited to start posting a little more often this year. I have so many fun ideas and collaborations coming up so keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks for stopping by!
