This post is in partnership with Chloe + Isabel through Smart Girls Media Sisters. I’ve been in a serious fashion rut for the past few months. Spring is coming painfully slow here in Illinois, and there’s just not much I can do with the same uniform of skinny jeans and sweaters anymore. I’ve been stuck in a vicious fashion cycle, and I’m ready to switch things up. After praying for sun to come out and play for weeks, I got lucky with an unusually warm day. Pair that with some gorgeous new jewelry, and I finally had the inspiration I needed… View Post

So I always get a bit of a thrill working on new blog posts – but today’s is special. Words can’t describe how eager I am to hit the publish button on this one.

First of all, you need to beg someone to brave the cold, unforgiving winter to take pictures of you (thanks, Chris!), you have to not look awkward even though there… View Post

It makes me feel strong physically, and I’m also proud of what my body can accomplish. When I go I usually like to go with a girlfriend so we can cheer each other on and… View Post

So if you live in the United States you are probably quite aware that today is Thanksgiving. I considered writing a list of things I’m thankful for, but that list is long. I feel it’s needless to say that I am thankful for my friends and my family and all of you lovely people out there. So instead I thought I would provide you with what I believe to be the anatomy of the perfect Thanksgiving outfit. “But Morgan, shouldn’t any ol’ outfit do?” Oh no, you’re mistaking. There truly is an art to perfecting your Thanksgiving outfit – you… View Post
