Instagram Roundup #11

This has been quite a week! I’m excited to share a few snippets from Instagram.

I wore this outfit to church last Sunday. I knew I wanted to wear the dress, but I was going to try one of my plaid scarves. I ended up rushing to get out the door, so I grabbed this port-colored fringe scarf because I knew it was easy to style. I ended up really liking this outfit! I also wore my new black over-the-knee boots.

I was feeling a bit under the weather that afternoon so I snuggled up in bed with tea and a novel.

On Monday, I gave myself a “grace day” and didn’t bother to do my hair or makeup. I threw on this comfy sweatshirt with jeans and UGGs and spent most of the day working at my computer.

Later that day, I posted this collage to direct everyone to my blog post with the outfit details.

I was feeling better on Tuesday, so I decided to hit up LOFT. I wore this black tunic with white jeans. I love the unexpected white jeans this time of year. This black tunic is from the juniors department, but I still bought my regular size medium. It’s $42 and thin but super soft. And yes, those are my black boots again!

I posted this to share about the LOFT 40% off sale. These utility pants are so cute. The black and white top is from LeTote, and those are my Felicia Flats. (LOVE!!)

I posted this winter panzanella salad recipe on Thursday. I brought back my good friend and former food contributor, Colleen, to crate this decadent winter salad featuring Udi’s Gluten Free Bread.

I’m excited about my new venture with Rodan + Fields. I posted this picture of my current skincare regimen. I’ll be sharing more in the weeks to come. Meanwhile, if you’re wondering what products are right for you, you can use their Solution Tool.

I posted this teaser to Thursday’s outfit post. In reality, I spent the day in sweatpants. Ha!

The new spring line for Stella & Dot is here. I’ll be sharing more about spring accessory trends in a future post, but here’s what I ordered. Click here to visit my online boutique.

These are travel outfit selfies I took on Friday morning before I left for Nashville. Cyndi and I have had such a blast getting to know each other better and working on a secret project. (More info to come!!)

This is the view from our hotel room. It’s been a chilly, grey weekend, but it didn’t prevent us from having fun!

Nashville

We snapped this selfie while we were hanging out on Broadway on Friday night. We slipped into one of the honkey-tonk bars for some live music before heading up to Puckett’s for dinner.

Cyndi & Jo-Lynne

This is the outfit I wore yesterday. Same jeans, boots, and coat. I changed my pink v-neck for a pink turtleneck. The crossbody I’m carrying is old. I like this sweater best with a coat or vest over it, but I didn’t want to pack my bulky quilted vest for this short trip so I wore it on its own. The New Moon Necklace is a new Stella & Dot piece. I love it because it’s nice and light, and you can wear it with the pave in front or turned to the back so it’s all gold.

Capsule Wardrobe Outfit #2

I posted this snap of my view while were working at a nearby Starbucks.

The Stage is the honkey tonk bar we visited on Friday night. Last night, we spent a few hours of retail therapy at Nordstrom after a hard day’s work and then enjoyed a laid-back dinner in our hotel’s lounge before turning in early. What can I say? We’re a pair of grannies.

This morning, I’m up bright and early so I can get back to Philly in time to host our prayer group for dinner tonight. There’s no rest for the weary! Ha!

  1. I really enjoy the Insta-recaps. I don’t use Instagram (I don’t have time to sign up and learn to use one more type of social media.
    My kids say I’m old school but I am touched with a bit of Type A personality or perhaps a little OCD and like with Facebook I spend too much time feeling I need to check it at night just to get “caught up”. I hate to admit it but it’s one of the things on my mental check list for the day. I said all that to say, thanks for the recap and saving me the trouble of another social media attempt. Ha!

  2. Remember the names of the performers you heard Friday night, in case they become famous one day. You’ll be able to say, I heard them when…
    Safe travels back to PA!

    God bless!

  3. Jo Lynne,
    You have such energy and enthusiasm! I love reading what you are up to. I follow Cyndi as well. I’m sure you two had a blast and came up with some good stuff! I will be retiring from teaching this year and hope to join the blog world.
    Blessings,
    Kelly

  4. I saw you wearing the Halogen Cashmere sweater had to get it too! Such a great deal 🙂 It’s so fun and I love the detail of the split hem line. Now you’ve got me eyeballing those green pants at Loft! Enjoy your trip!

  5. Jo-Lynne, just found your blog about a month ago. I really like it. I’m a stay at home mom of 4 & I often lose sight of myself. Yoga pants & T-shirts are my constant go to’s. You’ve really helped me. I’m ordering the black over the knee boots you have & I just received the Tom wedge booties you recommended. Your outfits are so practical & you look so put together. Keep up the good work. May God continue to use you!

  6. Can’t wait to see what you and Cyndi have up your collective sleeves. How fun that you guys are working together on another project. Nashville looks grayer and colder than I remember it. Your pretty sweatery tops brightened things up, for sure. Thank you for sending the answers to the blog interview. Will be working on that this weekend.
