Things Every Girl Needs: Every Day Must Haves

This week I'm happy to welcome Megan from A Lived In Home.  She's a fellow Dallasite, and has begun writing a great decor blog that has become one of my daily reads.  She's here to post about some of the things that she thinks deserve a place in your makeup bag and closet.


I was thrilled when Haley asked me to guest post on her stylish blog. I do, after all, love my cardigans!

There are certain items that every girl needs to feel stylish and beautiful. Here are what I deem the must haves and non- negotiables!

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer $28.50. My go to color is Sea Shell and it's always in my make-up bag. 

We must protect ourselves from the sun! I use this Neutrogena non-greasy sunblock for my face and body. It's lightweight enough to go under makeup. 

Essie nail polish in Mademoiselle ($8)  is a timeless nail color and wearable for any special occasion. 

Jo Malone makes a variety of delicious colognes that are appropriate for any age and smell so fresh. ($105)

A cute makeup bag to carry all the "goods" around- Kate Spade $65 

Bellatrix Strapless Maxi Dress from Nordstrom

A fun and flirty maxi dress is comfortable and cool on a hot summer day. Us Texas girls know about the heat all too well!

A comfortable and classic black ballet flat is a must! This Tory Burch Reva Flat $195 is my personal favorite. They are so comfortable and conform to your feet over time. 

Lastly, my Ray- Ban's are my favorite sunglasses and are affordable at $129.

Maybe you already have one of these items or will add one of them to your "want" list. After all, they are things that every girl needs!  Thanks to Haley for having me today!
