It’s time for CLOSET CONFESSIONS – the series where you get to know a little bit about one of my blogger buddies AND peek inside her closet!!!!
Cue the applause!
Today we get to know Megan from Honey We’re Home!
Megan is DARLING, she has a cute hubby, a precious kid, and a gorgeous home.
Believe me, we could all hate her if she weren’t SO DANG SWEET!
I met her in real life thru my other bloggy friend Cassie and immediately fell in love with this girl.
And then I saw pics of her closet, and I wanted to move in with her.
This was my plan: I was just going to curl up in one of her cubbies, and she probably wouldn’t even notice I was there.
When I was there, I would try on all of her shoes….you’ll see what I mean in just a sec….
Okay, let’s get started with Megan’s confessions!
From here on out, my commentary will be in italics!
Megan: I’d have to say shoes. When we built our home and I designed the closet, I made sure to add shoe shelves that could hold about 50 pair of shoes- I figured that should have been enough room, but I still have some overflow.
Megan: For sure my flip flops and Gap jean shorts! I live in those most of the time.
me: Megan has a crazy good body (I hope it’s not weird that I’m saying that…but whatever…she does), and if I were her I’d pretty much ditch the shorts and find an excuse to just walk around in a bikini. A TRIANGLE bikini (that one is for you Narci). 🙂
Megan, my most worn item in my closet ALL YEAR LONG are hands down and no contest my MUST HAVE jeans.
My exact pair from 2013 are sold out, but you can find the 2014 distressed skinny jean version HERE (great with tall boots) and the 2014 distressed cuffed version HERE (great with booties and flats). There is also a pair of non-distressed cuffed jeans that are dark wash that you can find HERE.
I’m telling you, these jeans are awesome, and you can’t beat the price.
Megan: My favorite shoes are my Michael Kors knee-high boots that I’ve had forever, but don’t get to wear that often because Houston only has a few months of cold weather.
Me: Megan, I don’t have any knee high boots, but I was thinking that I might put a pair on my Christmas list! I think I would be all sorts of SASSY in them.
I would WORK IT.
Here are some I found that I’m loving…
hinge boot HERE
born boot HERE
black suede HERE
Tell me you didn’t just sing that.
Oh you didn’t?
Yeah, me either.
And just in case anybody cares, the most worn shoes in my closet are THESE. They work in spring, summer, and fall. I wear them with jeans, with cords, with skirts, and even with cut-offs. I’m telling you, this pair of flats is legit.
Megan: I’m pretty sure I’ve had these Citizens of Humanity Dita petite bootcut jeans for at least 7 years. They are my “most comfy-make your butt look great” pair of jeans. I dig the casual color too. I think they just get better with age.
They are often sold out, but this pair is similar.
If you want an inexpensive pair of bootcut jeans, I’ve got a suggestion for you!
They are only $58 and are from the same maker of my MUST HAVE jeans!
Or if you want designer, click HERE for 21 pairs of designer jeans on sale…some brands are picked over….but good luck!!!!! You might find a great deal!
5) Do you have an item in your closet that you can’t get rid of, even though you know you will never wear it again?
Megan: Hmmm, if I know I’m never going to wear something again, I let it go.
The only thing I still have that I’ll never wear is my wedding dress.
Me: Megan, I’m jealous again.
I don’t know why, but I have the hardest time getting rid of clothes…
even if it’s been years since I’ve worn them! Which could explain the pleated khaki suit pants I just threw away a couple of years ago!
Megan: I try to shop as frugally as possible. There are too many sales, coupon codes and discounts to not get a great deal! The jeans and boots I mentioned before are probably my biggest splurges- and worth every penny!
Me: Megan, Pinterest Told Me To readers would like to suggest you that you cough up $90 and get THIS. You might question spending that much money, but WE PROMISE you will wear it inside of your house all fall and winter long, and you will wear it out of your house with leggings, jeans, and tall boots.
Get it, and then you can thank us all later.
7) Tell us about the best bargain in your closet!
Megan: My best bargains are the items I score at Marshall’s. I found these heels there, but also saw them online for only $35.70.
Megan: I’d love to add a faux fur vest to my wardrobe- don’t have one and they are so chic for fall and winter!
Me: If I ever get brave enough to try and pull of a faux fur vest, I might try THIS two-toned one. And if any of you out there have a baby girl, you should probably get her one of THESE from Old Navy. Because duh.
-My tops are organized into four hanging sections: 1) tanks/sleeveless; 2) cotton tees (long and short); 3) blouses/button down shirts; and 4) sweaters.
I then organize them by color.
I have a little OCD in me too Megan. Sadly, mine manifests itself with stupid things running through my head like DID I SHUT THE GARAGE DOOR?...or DID I BLOW THE CANDLE OUT? ..or DID I LEAVE MY HOT ROLLERS PLUGGED IN ON ACCIDENT?
(Yes, I use hot rollers. No, I’m not 83)
-I recently switched out all my white plastic hangers for these slim huggable hangers which I love! They save so much space and really keep your clothes from falling off the hanger. Also, these hangers have rounded ends to prevent those ugly points on your shirts. I had to get used to using them because when you put them in your shirt, they can get caught on the fabric.
I use these too Megan, and speaking of OCD, I started out by getting like 20 of them to see if I liked them enough (kinda pricey at $1 a hanger) to get them for the entire closet! But it took about 1 hour for my obsessive tendencies to kick into overdrive and suddenly I HAD TO HAVE AN ENTIRE CLOSET OF HUGGABLE HANGERS. For about a year I bought about $50 worth every several months and now almost my entire closet is made up of these beauties.
–I hung my colorful necklaces there using a silver pushpin pushed right into the wall. I tried to keep them level but didn’t measure, just “eyeballed” it. The statement necklaces are hung across two pushpins and the others hang on one.
–I prefer to hang my sweaters during winter so they aren’t getting smashed and wrinkled
– I use a tie/belt organizer to hang my scarves. It keeps them tangle and wrinkle free and easy to see. It’s very strong- holds 14 scarves on one hanger!
Now that you’ve heard all about her closet, it’s time to see it!
Get ready to OOOOOH and AHHHHHHHHHHHHH while contemplating setting fire to your own closet.
Look at those shelves! Look at that island! Look at her jewelry! Look at the light fixture! That’s right….Oooooh and Ahhhhhhh girls….Oooooooh and Ahhhhhhhhh.
LOVE how she hung the statement necklaces across 2 push pins so she could really see them! That’s a little bit of genius right there.

If you follow me on instagram, then you’ve seen a couple of pictures of the new house.
When we got over to the house (just a couple hours after closing) I took THIS shot and posted it to instagram. Lots of you requested for me to do a Closet Confessions, and I totally will!!!!!
I already have a friend lined up for November, but I will do December for sure.
I’m not sure if you can tell or not, but I’m a little bit excited about this closet.
(Follow me on instagram HERE for little snippits from my real life that don’t always make it to the blog!)
Do you guys remember our special mama from July?
Well, Candace was the special mama who we honored with a $1000 shopping spree to Nordstrom!
(You can see the shopping trip HERE. You can click HERE to read about Candace.)
If you recall, her oldest son has autism and she and her hubby created the organization Counting On Hope to help with therapy and medical expenses.
Do you remember her superhero shirt?
The back of the shirt reads:
“Sometimes superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles.”
Look at all of the sweet and precious super heroes that are all so brave.
Find these amazing shirts HERE.
Do you have a son, daughter, niece, nephew, cousin, neighbor, friend who would love to receive one of these shirts? What an easy way to let a family member or friend know that you are rooting them on in their journey!
