Meggan: I also loved it! It’s light (for a carseat), has a dream drape, easy to get in and out of the base, easy to travel with and it’s sturdy. I would definitely recommend it! You can shop it here and here.
Meggan: My first office job was at a media company called Mindshare. There I designed and maintained the intranet program the employees used. It was a good first job and I got a lot of experience but decided to leave for a complete different career path in fashion. I worked at Nordstrom on Michigan Ave and then left after about a year for Trunk Club. I have mixed emotions about Trunk Club. I loved the office, the amazing people, the inspiring meetings, and the potential. But I thought it was going to be a stylist job but it was really just a sales position with a better name. I do not have a sales personality at all and I’m not very pushy so it was hard for me to hit the high goals every month. You do a lot of cold calling and out reach to build your book. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s an amazing company and there are girls (and guys) there who KILL it but it wasn’t the best fit for me. I ended up switching positions within the company and liked that position better. They do sell some awesome clothes and Kyle has got a few custom suits there that he lovvvves!
Meggan: I’m not one to follow any special diets – I just try to eat clean and workout 3-4 times a week. If I tell myself no carbs or sweets, I’m myself up for failure. I have the Skinnytaste Cookbook and make a lot of recipes from it. They are yummy and low in calories and bonus – Kyle loves them too! But once the wedding gets a little closer I want to start kickboxing. I used to do it and LOVED it. It’s such a fun, high intensity workout and the results are amazing.
I don’t know a ton of breakfast spots but Little Goat, Bongo Room are so good. And if you love donuts, you need to hit up Doughnut Vault and Glazed. My favorite lunch spots are Hampton Social (fun vibe), Three Arts Club (Restoration Hardware), Beatrix, and Summer House. For dinner I would recommend GT Fish & Oyster, RPM Italian (haven’t tried RPM Steak yet but going in a couple weeks!), Green Street Smoked Meats, Big Star, Table 52, Mercadito, Stella Barra, Bar Sienna, Girl and the Goat, and Homeslice. A few places I haven’t been but are on my list are Blackbird, Bohemian House and Grace.
Meggan: I got this bra in a couple colors (it’s amazing!), this sweater, these boots (in grey), these faux leather pants, and this jacket. I’m sure that won’t be my only order 😉 I’m really loving these booties and the tan vest Brooke got!
Meggan: I use Jergens Natural Glow and always get compliments on my “tan”. I want to try the lotion that Brooke got too!
We are all about buying classic, staple pieces you can mix + match. Basic tees (we love these, these and these), a great pair of black pants, a chambray button down, a leather jacket, a casual t-shirt dress, skinny jeans, maxi dress (love this and this), and a cardigan. For shoes you should have a pair of sneakers (what we wear the most!), classic heels, and booties.
