Friends~ My dream is a reality and my blog, Truly Megan, is officially LIVE today! I’m so excited to share with you why I took a leap of faith in my very first blog post.
As many of you know, I have been in the fashion industry for most of my adult life and have worked for a fashion house since my boys were 6, 3 and 1 years old. They are now 22, 19 and 17. Wow, time sure does fly! My oldest son has officially ‘launched’ and I am taking my second son off to college this week. So, with just one son left at home, I have a little more time on my hands to explore some creative outlets. I have followed bloggers for years and years and love social media. I adore styling women and sharing fashion advice and tips. Blogging is giving me another platform to do just that, however in a more virtual setting and to a wider audience. Blogging will allow me to share my passion beyond my existing network of friends and hopefully meet more women who inspire me and vice versa.
I want to thank some very special friends who helped me get my blog started. They shared their stories and their expertise and I respect these women immensely.
Heather Anderson of So Heather Blog is the most beautiful person, inside and out and she is the chicest woman I know. I am constantly in awe of Heather’s sense of style and grace. Thank you, Heather~ you are a true gem!
Tanya Foster of Tanya Foster Blog is one of the hardest working women in Dallas. Tanya continues to inspire me every day and I appreciate the little things she does to help me along. I met Tanya when we were provisionals for the Junior League of Dallas…ages ago. We also started the first chapter of ‘Young Men’s Service League’ in Highland Park together-I couldn’t have done it without her! Tanya could seriously run the country!
Mary Meier-Evans of The Curious Cowgirl writes the BEST travel blog. If you ever need a trip planned to Europe or NYC, she is your girl. Mary has a heart of gold and I don’t think I could have launched my blog had it not been for my ‘cheerleader’. Mary is one of the most fun people to be around and I’m banking on a trip overseas with her in the very near future! Thank you Mary- I adore you, my friend!
A big hug and kiss go out to my husband, Don Saustad. He is the most wonderful man on the earth and he loves me unconditionally. My sweet husband is moonlighting as my photographer and we are both learning quite a bit from each other…even after 25 years of marriage. This blogging photography is new for both of us!
Thank you to Marc Lee, my patient and extremely intelligent website designer Your thoroughness and guidance are so appreciated and you captured exactly what I wanted this blog to convey to my readers!
I thought it only appropriate that I open my first blog post sharing this fun, whimsical HEART TEE because, truly, my heart is FULL! Hearts are a big trend for fall and you will see these designs on tee shirts, sweaters, sneakers, belts and accessories.
I’ve paired my tee with these Frame Jeans and leopard flats, similar styles here and here. If you want to splurge, these Gucci loafers would be a great investment! This tee is perfect worn alone or layered under a blazer. It seriously goes with EVERYTHING! It is still super hot here in Dallas so I wear this Erik Javits straw fedora that has UPF 50 almost daily.
Check out this heart belt, heart sweater, heart tee here, and here, and this clutch (splurge!). Grab something this fall with a heart on it and spread the LOVE!
Stay tuned for more good things to come! I hope you will share my post with a friend and if you are on INSTAGRAM, please follow me at @trulymeganblog
