Hello, friends. I hope you’re having a great weekend, despite the cold temperatures across so much of the country. I thought I’d throw together an Instagram roundup for today, and I also have information about a new app that allows you to shop my Instagram outfits without registering for LIKEtoKNOW.it.
But first, I’m excited to tell you that registration for the next Adore Your Wardrobe course opens today!
Adore Your Wardrobe Registration Is Open!
Kelly’s theory is that fashion isn’t art so much as it is science, math, proportion, and balance; and she set out to demystify fashion for other women and transform the way we think about, buy, and put together outfits.
From taking this course, I learned SO much about dressing to flatter my individual body type. In fact, I learned straight away in Lesson 1 that I didn’t even KNOW my own body type. All my life I thought I was rectangle or an inverted triangle, when in fact I’m an hourglass. I had no idea.
To see what one of her lessons is like, click the link GET FREE EPISODE INSTANTLY to get her Rule of Four Episode for free. Rule of Four is stylist’s secret formula for how to make an outfit look put-together. Kelly teaches you how to use accessories, patterns, and layering to make your own Pinterest-worthy outfits. That episode alone changed how I get dressed every day, and my ability to put outfits together that fit and flatter has improved 10-fold since taking this course. You can get all the info about the prices and the different levels HERE.
I highly recommend the Designer Level. The personal help and encouragement you get in the Facebook Group is well worth the extra investment. I wouldn’t have gotten nearly as much out of the class if I’d done the coursework without the access to Kelly and her team in the group, plus you learn a lot from the other women in the group as they learn too.
Space is limited, so if you want to participate this time around, register soon!
Now on to the Instagram Roundup…
Instagram Roundup 03.12.17
If this post doesn’t give you whiplash, nothing will, ha! The weather has been INSANE around here lately. It’s gone from winter to spring and back to winter so many times, I’ve lost count.
I know it isn’t officially spring until March 20, and I live in Pennsylvania so I really can’t expect spring weather yet, but when your job revolves around fashion, you’re always thinking about a half-season ahead, and it can’t help but affect your psyche just a little bit! Sometimes I actually forget what season I’m in.
I really wish I could tell you we’re having some lovely spring-like weather right now to go along with the spring fashions I’m sharing with you, but alas, I cannot. Not only did a cold front come through over the weekend, we are actually expecting an epic snowstorm this week. Good times!
All that to say, my Instagram roundup is a mish-mosh of winter and spring outfits. While I’m shooting spring outfits for my blog posts, my daily wear is more geared to our climate at the moment, which is pretty much still winter.
So with that lengthy preamble, let’s get this party started!
I’m going to include some of my non-outfit posts as well because, why not? This is a picture I took when I was in Nashville with Cyndi a few weeks ago. Nashville is such a pretty little city.
And here we are — me with my partner in
crime fashion. We were so tired when we took this picture. We had already knocked out a photo shoot and then we’d been shopping and trying on clothes for a while. Thus, the pretty filter! My green cashmere sweater is still marked down to $49, and while sizes are limited in the green, there are lots of other colors. It’s a nice sweater for this time of year. My monogram necklace is the gold plated, size 3XL, and it has the 16″ chain. This would make a nice Mother’s Day gift, just sayin’.
I snapped this from our very messy hotel room the morning we were leaving. All outfit details are in this blog post.
Airplane reading… As you can see, I didn’t travel in that outfit above. I was wearing it for a photo shoot. My Tory Burch travel flats were perfect for a long day of airport travel, and they fold up and fit in your bag if you want to wear a fancier shoe and bring them along for backup (not sure where you’d put the dressier shoes, though, lol!) I’m wearing CND Romantique over Cake Pop on my nails.
Back at home, I wore this one day to run errands and catch up on chores around the house. My Zella sweatshirt has sold out.
This was another day at home and running errands. The sweater one of my favorites, and I wear it at least once a week. Unfortunately it sold out soon after I bought it. I believe it came from Trunk Club. I decided to brighten up this neutral outfit for spring with these coral perforated flats.
Sam Edelman Felicia Perforated Flats // AG Raw Hem Legging Ankle Jeans (these Sevens are under $200 and also really great jeans, and LOFT has a similar style for under $100) // three rings necklace c/o Hallmark
You can see more of this outfit in this post.
I know this top isn’t super flattering, but it may possibly be the softest thing I have ever worn, and I love it. I think it’s fun for a casual weekend look.
linen scoop neck tee // J. Brand Distressed Crop Jeans (similar for less) // floral neck scarf // Marc Fisher Perforated Platform Wedges (similar for less) // kate spade new york mylie hobo in rose cloud (similar for less) // watch c/o kate spade new york // assorted Alex and Ani wire bangles (some c/o) // faux pearl earrings
For some reason, this picture got 599 likes on Instagram! (I average somewhere in the 200s per post.) I guess I should do these flat lays more often. No need to do my hair and makeup or anything! LOL! Also, it may look like a copout for a post, but I think I spent a half-hour getting this the way I wanted it. It’s no wonder I don’t do more of them!
I wore this out to dinner with some friends for my husband’s birthday.
hinge floral top // AG legging jeans // vince camuto booties (similar for less here and here) // kate spade new york mylie hobo in rose cloud (similar for less) // pave necklace // beaded hoop earrings // vachetta and gold smart watch c/o kate spade new york // assorted Alex and Ani wire bangles (some c/o)
This was just a casual weekday at home. Everything except the Lucky Brand lace-up flats are sold out, but they are only $38 and genuine leather — a great budget buy.
This was another one of Catherine’s photos from Nashville. More on this outfit in this post.
SALE ALERT >> Save 50% on 5 full-price items at Banana Republic with code BRFAMILY. Ends 3/13/2017 at 11:59 PM ET.
I wore this to church one chilly Sunday.
This spring work wear outfit was on the blog earlier this week.
I wore this to a meeting at the elementary school and then to the mall to do a few errands… simple, but I really like the proportions of this outfit and how each piece fits. There are little flecks of pink and green in the sweater, but you can’t see it in this picture.
SALE ALERT >> Take 30% off select denim at DL1961 with code SPRINGBREAK! This includes my favorite Emma and Florence styles, plus they have some really cute new styles that I’m wanting to try out. I think I’m going to order one of the Chrissy styles to see how I like those. They’re a high rise skinny ankle jean.
Free People sweater (20% off at Zappo’s) // AG high rise skinnies (similar for less here and here) // vince camuto perforated peep toe booties (I also like these and these) // kate spade mylie hobo (similar for less here and here) // Stella & Dot tassel earrings and cuff bracelet
This might look familiar (see the flat lay above.) We actually photographed this outfit for the blog last Saturday, but by the time I get around to posting it, you’re probably already going to be sick of seeing this top. LOL!
This dress was on the blog earlier this week. I kept it sporty with my Converse Shoreline kicks. More on that in this post.
I wore this to meet a friend for lunch on one of those mild days we had earlier this week. These jeans are only $34, and they’re selling out fast. Mine are the strawberry dust, but there are more color options here.
marled cardigan (on sale for $23) // perfect white tee (use code Jolynne10 for 10 percent OFF your order from ThirtySomethingTees) // mid-rise rockstar jeans (on sale for $34) // layered necklace // Tory Burch travel flats
In case you missed it, I posted this outfit to the blog yesterday.
ballet-back tee // favorite white jeans; similar for less // denim lace-up flats (30% off and SO comfy!) // faux leather crossbody ($29) // Alex and Ani wire bangles // kate spade two-tone watch // monogram necklace: gold plated 3XL with 16″ chain
And I posted this mirror selfie to share this t-shirt dress because it’s so cute and such a good price. I felt like it was too similar to the grey stripe shift dress to do a full blog post on it, plus I would style it the same way — with my white denim jacket and Converse. It also comes in several colors, and because it is short-sleeved, it will carry you further into spring and summer. It’s more form fitting than the grey, but it’s stretchy and comfortable. For size reference, I have the medium in both.
Finally, this is a preview of an outfit coming to the blog next week.
Believe it or not, there are a few more Instagram posts that I’m not including here, but they’re just other aspects of these outfits, and this post is long enough. Of course you can always follow along on Instagram and catch up over there at any time.
Shop My Instagram with Screenshot Technology
Now for my exciting news! For a while, you’ve been able to shop the Instagram posts of your favorite fashion bloggers from your email inbox by registering your email with LIKEtoKNOW.it and then “liking” the Instagram pictures with the @liketoknow.it affiliate links in them. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I explained it all here: What Is LIKEtoKNOW.it?
Now it’s even easier to shop your Instagram feed with the LTK app and a quick screenshot, and you don’t even have to register your email.
You may have noticed the little heart icon on many of my pictures in today’s post. That is the new LIKEtoKNOW.it logo, and when you see that in the bottom corner of an Instagram or Snapchat picture, you’ll know the picture is screenshot enabled, meaning you can actually shop those looks from Instagram or Snapchat with a screenshot.
All you have to do is download the LTK app and connect it to your Instagram, and voila! You’re in business! After that, any time you see the LTK logo in the bottom corner of an Instagram picture or the @liketoknow.it links in an Instagram post, you just take a screenshot. (All Instagram posts with the usual LTK links within the photo description are screenshot enabled; the influencer doesn’t have to add the watermark to the photo.)
Within a few seconds, you will get a push notification at the top of your screen stating that ‘Your screenshot by @jolynneshane is ready to shop!’ Click that to open the LTK app and shop the post!
All of the looks you’ve liked or screenshotted will be in the app, so you can go back and get info for them at any time.
You can delete the screenshots from your phone (so they’re not in your photo feed) and they will still be in the app for you to access at your convenience.
This video shows it all in action, but it’s pretty self explanatory once you start using it. I didn’t find it to be much of a learning curve at all, but there is an FAQ page within the app that should answer any question you may have.
The only downside is, this app is only available for iPhone at the moment. I know, womp! womp! They are working on an Android version, but it’s much more complex to make Android apps so that will be a little while longer.
If you’re on Android and you want to shop my Instagram feed without registering your email with LTK, I have linked my Shop MY IG blog page in my Instagram bio, and you can always go there to find the info about my Instagram outfits. That page is also linked in the menu bar at the top of my blog.
I hope all that makes sense. I’m happy to answer any questions in the comments.
I know not all of you are on Instagram, but if you are, this is a really cool way to get the information you want, and it cuts down on the amount of questions I have to answer. Not that I don’t love chatting with you all, and I’m always happy to answer questions about fit and style, but LTK makes it super easy to find out where I got my outfits with either the app or ready-to-shop emails, and I always do my best to link everything and tag the retailers in my pictures. Plus the Shop MY IG link is always available in my IG bio and on the blog — no apps or signups needed!
In the interest of full disclosure, the LTK product links on Instagram are affiliate links. I do make a commission when purchase from my blog or my IG, and that helps offset the costs of running this site and allows me to do this blogging thing full time, which I love. As always, I appreciate your support!
