Why we love her: From leopard print to denim on denim, Megan effortlessly transitions trends into wearable outfits and always manages to keep the price tags reasonable.

Megan’s Outfit Inspiration: “My perfect summer look is taking delicate pieces like pastel scalloped shorts and pairing them with a slouchy laid back top to make a breezy look for shopping, brunch with girlfriends, or even a date. By adding metallic platforms and chunky jewelry it gives the pink shorts a little bit of edge, making this my ideal summer uniform.”
