CJLA Girls Stories: Meghan Beltran
- by Lauren Burchill
Hi CJLA Girls! It's time to share another fun CJLA Stories interview! We had the pleasure of chatting with CJLA Girl Meghan Beltran. Meghan always shares great outfit inspiration on her Instagram page and we love following along on her journey. Check out the interview below to learn more about Meghan and her CJLA capsule!
CJLA: Tell us about yourself!
MEGHAN: Hey y'all! My name is Meghan, I'm 32 and originally from Texas but I have lived in Arizona since I was 10. I absolutely love the summer heat here. I know I sound crazy but at least it's dry heat and it calls for lots of pool time. I'm married to my amazing husband of 10 years. We have two rainbow babies, Genevieve (4) and Gabriel (3). I'm a stay at home momma who loves sharing healthy eats, fitness, home hacks, styling and anything that can help make your life simple.
CJLA: How did you discover CJLA?
MEGHAN: I'm not sure how exactly but I do know it was through Instagram. Once I ordered my first piece I was sold. The only thing I wish was that I had found CJLA when I was pregnant. I wouldn't of had to buy a single maternity piece! That's what I love about CJLA. That each piece transitions you through each season of life.
CJLA: Carly Jean Los Angeles is more than clothes, it's a community! Why do you love being a member of the CJLA community?
MEGHAN: Oh my gosh hands down the most amazing women that I've ever met. I've become so close to some and I wouldn't have met them if it wasn't for CJLA. We uplift each other and are from all walks of life.
CJLA: What are your three all-time favorite CJLA capsule pieces?
CJLA: Why does the capsule concept work so well for you and your lifestyle?
MEGHAN: Not only has having a capsule helped downsize my closet but it's also made getting dressed more simple. Never have I ever been able to just walk into my closet and grab two things and be done on the first try. I used to struggle and change a million times before giving up and just throwing on something I didn't feel confident in. Now I can instantly go in to my wardrobe, grab something, throw it on and not only feel confident, but comfortable with what I'm wearing, which is crucial as a mom. Our bodies change so much after having kids and our time is limited when it comes to shopping for ourselves.
CJLA: How has having a capsule wardrobe helped to simplify your life?
MEGHAN: It's changed my life forever. I once was the woman that'd take the largest suitcase I own on a trip just for myself. We recently went to Disney World as a family of four and I fit all of our things in two suitcases! So it's not only helped me pack less for myself but for my family as well.
CJLA: What is your favorite CJLA capsule piece to style?
MEGHAN: Without a doubt the Amanda Jumper. I'm a sucker for a good jumper (which CJLA helped me see). It's so versatile. It can be dressed for everyday, date night and I even wore it to a wedding before! It's a staple in my closet for sure.
CJLA: If you had to describe CJLA to a friend using only three words, what would they be?
MEGHAN: Tough question! Three words to describe CJLA would be simplified, comfort and confident.
