Why We’re Loving …love Maegan

It takes a truly unique point of view to make a name for yourself in the digital sphere. With millions of people vying for their rightful place in the spotlight all over the world, that’s easier said than done. Yet it’s precisely what Maegan Tintari accomplished when she established her lifestyle blog in 2007. There’s also a complementary Instagram page where you can follow her beautifully curated adventures daily.

The Los Angeles-based native is nothing if not inspiring. She’s the co-owner of Dogwood Tavern, a cozy-meets-lively, cabin-like haunt near Lake Arrowhead. Her blog is packed with valuable tips, insight, DIY projects, and reviews touching on everything from health and wellness to home and décor to infertility. That Tintari is so open about her struggles displays her vulnerability and desire to keep it completely real—something that clearly sets her apart from her fellow bloggers and ‘grammers.

She’s also a complete harbinger of style, and her Instagram page is picture-perfect proof of that. Who can deny the fashion sense of someone who has such a keen eye for design? Her DIY hair accessories mimic coveted runway styles to perfection. She even designed embellished shoe clips to transform her chic black pumps into a D&G-style Mary Jane. Totally glitzy and show-stopping!

Tintari’s off-duty styles are the very definition of nonchalant chic. They’re casual, but not sloppy. Comfortable, but not lazy. Pulled together, but not stuffy. Sense a trend here? She understands what it means to dress down, but there’s a cohesiveness to her method. It’s evident in this photo, in which she pairs comfortable blue jeans with a posh high-neck top and a pair of gray suede booties.

And when she’s in the mood for something a little more spirited? Hello, style inspo! It’s difficult not to obsess over an ensemble so beautifully assembled. Featuring a vintage jacket, an iconic dripping Chanel cropped tee, a pair of sleek black trousers, a sexy chain belt, and strappy open-toe sandals, this is the type of composition that fills the minds of sartorial dreamers. It’s not just well put together, but perfectly executed with confidence and panache.

Tapping into nature, Tintari makes even maxi dresses look decidedly glamorous. She wears a glorious tiered dress that incorporates a number of patterns to create a mesmerizing yet totally approachable look. The attention-grabbing leather jacket is the perfect finishing touch—it creates balance and toughens up an otherwise dainty, ladylike piece just enough.

She’s equally adept at crafting looks that would quickly earn best-dressed honors in Paris and Milan. Take this desperately addictive ensemble: It marries the classic allure of a lean tan coat and a matching Chanel shoulder bag with a warm taupe sweater, complementary pumps, and an unexpected yet completely appropriate splattered denim pencil skirt. It’s thoughtfully arranged, for sure, yet Tintari makes it look completely effortless.

Enthusiastic, open, fashionable, and inspiring. Is it any wonder why ...love Meagan deserves all the love?
