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!
If you’re not familiar, Adore Your Wardobe is an eCourse run by Kelly of Redefined Mom, and if you feel like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, this course is for you!
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.
similar jeans (similar for less) // Converse Shoreline
This cozy twist-front top is such a great little piece for this in-between season, and it’s still fully stocked. Also, these aviators are $60. More pictures in this post.
twist front fleece pullover // white jeans (similar for less) // Chucks // perforated tote // alex and ani wire bangles // Quay mirrored aviators
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.
beaded hoops // pave necklace // floral v-neck top
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.
side split pullover // AG Raw Hem Legging Ankle Jeans (similar for less) // Converse Shoreline
More pictures of this outfit are in this post. LOVE these shoes in the blush suede, and they were just restocked. They run true to size.
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!
ruffle sleeve tee // distressed jeans // lace-up flats ($38!) // tribal pendant
I wore this out to dinner with some friends for my husband’s birthday.
Free People sweater (20% off) // AG raw hem ankle legging jeans // Stuart Weitzman booties // Clare V leopard clutch // choker (old)
Yes, I really love this outfit and the photos from the lovely Catherine Truman. I think I’ve posted 3 different shots of it on Instagram. More details in this post.
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.
gingham sheath // tassel foldover clutch c/o Gigi New York (similar for less) // crossover block heel sandals c/o kate spade new york
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.
Paige crop skinny jeans // kate spade new york mylie hobo in rose cloud (similar for less) // vince camuto booties (50% off) // monogram necklace: size 3XL, 16″ chain
This spring work wear outfit was on the blog earlier this week.
fuchsia blouse // white blazer // slim bootcut suit pants // black pumps // black satchel // triad hoops// triple rings necklace c/o Hallmark // link bracelet // Ray-Bans
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.
v-neck sweater (old) // DL1961 Emma Legging Jeans in Token wash (30% off at DL1961.com with code SPRINGBREAK) // similar pink flats // wishing necklace // celestial choker
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.
More of this transitional spring outfit are in this post. I love this sweater so much, I am so tempted to buy it in another color.
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!
ruffle sleeve tee (size up!) // raw hem ankle legging jeans // lace-up flats ($38!) // charm pendant (old)
This dress was on the blog earlier this week. I kept it sporty with my Converse Shoreline kicks. More on that in this post.
striped shift dress ($22!) // Converse Shoreline // white denim jacket (similar for less) // saddle bag // triad hoops
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.
crewneck tee dress // Converse Shoreline
Finally, this is a preview of an outfit coming to the blog next week.
slim fit portofino shirt // white jeans (similar for less) // taupe sandals // perforated tote
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!

I just heard on TV that Philly will be getting hit hard with snow, so be careful. I live in Ohio, but get on a cruise ship today for 21 days. We are sailing out of Ft Lauderdale FL this evening. Will miss reading the posts, but glad to be someplace warm celebrating 45 years of marriage. Hopefully, it will be spring when we get back!
Yeah, we are supposed to get dumped on. I usually love a good snow, but not this time of year! LOL
I really like the ruffle sleeve tee, but I was wondering about sizing. I see where you suggest sizing up. I normally wear a petite small in tees. Would you suggest a small or medium in this tee? I love reading your posts. I always get great ideas!
Hey Jennifer, I actually went up to a large in this tee. I usually am a small or medium, and the medium was okay but a little tight in the upper arms and across the back/chest area. The large is roomy, but allows for shrinkage. So I would go up one whole size.
Which level did you take of Adore your wardrobe? Is there a big difference diffence between the designer and the boutique for $20?
I did the Designer, and it is SO worth it to have the personal advice in the Facebook group. For just $20 more dollars, it’s a no brainer.
Did you also take course 2 of Adore Your Wardrobe? If so, wondering what you thought of it.
I did, and I loved it. It really took it all to the next level, and the color course was worth the price of admission. Game changer.
Love the Roundup each week. I am currently doing the Wardrobe Challenge and already signed up for the entire course.
Thanks and have a great day.
Awesome, I hope you love it! I know you will.
I can’t find a sizing chart anywhere on the DL1961 jeans. How do I figure out what size I would wear in them? Thanks! 🙂
Hey Tracy. DL runs pretty true to size. So 30=10, 29=8, 28=6, 27=4 and so on.
I wear a 29 in DL and a 6 or 8 in LOFT pants. Hope that helps!
That blue polka dot blouse looks SO good on you! And I love the bracelet with it ????
Do you wear your normal size in Sam Edelman Felicia flats? I see mixed reviews in sizing in their reviews. Not sure if should order regular size or a size up.
I think they are TTS. I wear an 8.5 – same as the Lucky Brand flats and Tory Burch flats. Hope that helps!
Wow!!!!! You sure put in a lot of time and work on this blog post. You do great and I can tell you enjoy what you do. You are beautiful on the inside and out and I appreciate how open and honest you come across on your blog post. I agree with the person above. You look great in the blue polka dot blouse. I love it with white jeans. 🙂 We had our last snow……I hope….. for the season, last week and I live in Northwest Oregon, so any snow at all is rare for us. I enjoyed it as we don’t get much, but I’m done and ready for warm and Spring too. I bet it is hard for you, styling Spring and wanting to wear all your new finds and then getting dumped with snow. Hang in there. 🙂
PS I’m not familiar with the CND brand of nail polish. I love your nail polish colors you mentioned, but is there a full name for the CND I need to know to purchase the brand?
PSS No need to answer. I found the CND brand nail shellac. Thanks. 🙂 Pretty colors.
That post with the Lucky medallion (which I just got) and red red shirt prompted me to order the shoes! They are comfortable without the elastic strings being too tight/loose. And the post did catch a lot of people’s attention!
A great round up, Jo-Lynne. Stay safe in all that snow! – Amy
