sister style : megan

June 12, 2015

When thinking of new additions to this series, Megan Hart Davis was a no-brainer. Blogger, stylist, mom to a sweet toddler, and former owner of much missed boutique, Summerland, Megan is a beloved and influential fixture in the local fashion scene. Blessed with lovely auburn tresses and porcelain skin, the statuesque beauty also has an impeccable eye for details which has resulted in her home being just as chic as she is.

I stopped by in the middle of a 90+ degree day and after refreshing ourselves with chilled cans of La Croix (pamplemousse, naturally … um, and how did I just discover this stuff?!), I did my best to capture Megan’s stunning style, in both fashion and decor –

VGS: What is your first fashion related memory?

M: My earliest memory is playing dress up with a giant box of vintage clothes my mom put together. There was everything from Edwardian lace blouses to 40’s velvet hats and cotton gauze poet’s blouses. I put together some pretty serious outfits with that stuff and luckily my parents took pictures as evidence.

The first conscious “moment” I remember having was when I was back to school shopping for junior high. My fashionable grandma gave me some money and let me loose in the mall and I came back with a head to toe plaid Clueless inspired outfit. I’ve been thinking a lot about those really formative movies of my childhood, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead and The Craft are also way up there.

VGS: What do you most look forward to wearing in the summer?

M: When it starts to heat up I love pulling out my collection of light cotton dresses and caftans. Some of the best things are only meant to be worn poolside with a tropical drink in hand, you know?

VGS: What’s one items you can never have too many of?

M: Brown leather shoes. I am constantly teased about how many pairs I own. It’s kind of a problem.

VGS: Which designers / brands / shops should readers be checking out?

M: I love to shop at Haunt for amazing one of a kind pieces from local designers, owner Holly makes such beautiful things! I can never leave Branch Birdie without buying something either, Anna stocks some of my favorite designers like Ulla Johnson, Ace + Jig and Osei-Duro. Palace is also a wonderland, I love the combination of new and vintage plus all the amazing housewares and culinary delights!
