You Got to Lose to Know How to Win

modern 70's look

What I’m Wearing
* J Brand Love Story flares {they don’t have this exact wash any longer but the ones I linked to are seriously hot. These are hands down the most flattering flares …and obviously I can’t get enough. Had them since 2007 and while they’re a classic fit at this point, we all know flares & all things 70’s have made a splashing comeback as of late.
* Silk striped Karen Zambos camisole …GILTseen once here
* Vintage woven rope belt
* You can’t see them but I’m wearing my Jimmy Choo espadrilles
* Victoria’s secret open cardigan …a major fave at the moment. I have it in 4 colors! …seen once here
* Simple clover necklace again
* Silver bangles worn with my cognac/gray lanyard bracelet DIY. I’ve been wearing this one a lot lately. I’ve added a few more to my Etsy shop if you like …you may buy one!
* Cynthia Rowley burgundy “Constance” bag with large tassel {which never stays clamped shut!} …but I still love it.
* Tom Ford cat eyes

* Title: lyrics from my favorite EVER Aerosmith song “Dream On” …and that one line says so much, and is so so true. Something you don’t grasp until you do. If only . . .

    This outfit is made of pure WANT. Seriously, I think I’m gonna faint! That’s how amazing it is. At first, I wanted to write I love your top. It’s really pretty and goes so well with your skin! And then I noticed I also liked the pants a lot. And kinda the whole outfit! Oh man 🙂 I wish I had top & pants… But I’m glad I at least have a similar belt (as seen here)
    and cardi ^^

    I always love a simple casual perfect outfit, it is so hard to pull together because it easily can look dull. That blouse is simple magnificent. Perfect color for spring, delicate fabric and gorgeous print. Fabulous combination with the beige cardigan. The cut of the jeans is perfect

    Those Lovestory jeans are hands down my most favorite pants ever. I wore through one pair already (literally… the crotch wore out. Whoops!)

    Since wide leg jeans seem to be coming back in, I wonder if I still have mine from high school?? Hmm..but would they fit?? Probably not. And they’re probably, no definitely, not as stylish as the ones out today.

    This might be my favorite ever outfit for you! You look perfect LA! OK also, what kind of bra do you wear with spaghetti straps. I avoid buying them but have found a few recently that I love, not so on the strapless bra front though.

    Super inspiring look. My fave combo- black & gold, to top it off the flares rock.

    Dear Meagan,

    I’m going to take some laxative so I can come steal those jeans. Otherwise they won’t fit… and I can’t afford a new pair.

    I think it’s a good plan. No?

    I love the blouse and the belt. I would have never thought of wearing them together but you rock them!

    ♥ silk camis ♥

    …also, I’ve been thinking about getting my very own pair of some J Brand Love Storys…but, I’m weary they won’t look too fab, as they will hug the two most ginormous parts of my body: butt & thighs…hmmm…actually…maybe that will make them perfect… 😉

    Hi Maegan! about the clasp popping open all the time…. Have you tried to turn the lock clockwise when you close it. If you turn it counterclockwise it always pops open.

    Had to comment on this outfit because, while I often think you look really awesome, I could never imagine wearing the outfits you put together. This outfit I definitely could… it looks fab. I’m completely in love with it. The other poster is right… I wasn’t feeling this blouse much the first time you wore it, but with this outfit, it just looks gorgeous. Rich and lovely. So pretty.
