Megan’s necklace is what initially caught my eye. The beautiful and vibrant color really stood out against the neutral colors of Megan’s outfit while remaining true to her earthy and chic style.

2. An Everyday Accessory

As Megan said in her interview, she never leaves the house without bangles – and with good reason! Bangles are an easy way to dress up an outfit. They can be fun or classy and can tie an outfit together. Megan’s bangles tied her look together thanks to their complementary colors.

3. Subtle Shoes

At first glance, Megan’s shoes are subtle, but when you look again, you realize how amazing they are! A pair of neutral-hued suede wedges like these are a perfect choice for fall and offer an easy way to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.

    I’m not personally a fan of a lot of earth tones, but Megan pulls it off wonderfully. I especially love the pop of turquoise her necklace provides. Gorg!

    I’ve always wondered how Texans can pull off layering in the warm/hot months. Here in Houston, even though it’s the end of October, it’s still 80+ degrees outside. She does a great job pulling off that outfit though.
