Every Friday I recap some of the outfits I posted on Instagram with all the item specifics. I normally share 5-7 outfits per week on Instagram but only 3-4 here. Typically the outfits that get featured here are the ones that were most well-received there or the ones that have the most currently available items. So here's the top four this week:
The View from the Top:
Express ("Pink Ribbon" - I ordered online so this is the exact name even though it looks much brighter in person than on the Express website.) / White cropped skinnies: Express / Sandals: Vince Camuto "Luciah" (Similar) / Necklace: Old Navy / Bracelet: Express (Similar) / Watch: Fossil / Bag: Target (Similar) / Nails: Essie "Blanc"
Express / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Sandals: Target / Bracelet: Express (modified) / Short Necklace: Forever 21 (modified) / Pendant Necklace: Express / Nails: Essie "Blanc"
Express ("Glam Green" - Current try "Forest Green") / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society (Similar) / Sunglasses: Nordstrom / Bracelet: Stella & Dot "Portia" / Nails: Essie "Flowerista" /
Loft / Tee: Old Navy / Necklace: Express / Black Skinnies: Express / Shoes: Sole Society / Bracelet: Express (Similar) / Sunglasses: Nordstrom / Nails: Essie "Flowerista"
After my Behind the Scenes post I got a few more votes on the diagonal vs. vertical photo issue, and diagonal is taking a strong lead, so I'll probably keep working on that. I Googled some tips for that but all the articles about "Know Your Angles" are not talking about the same thing I'm talking about!
And for another perspective, here's how it all looks from the front:
Like (to Know) it or Not
I link all my outfit details on Instagram via LiketoKnow.it and do my best to specify in the text of each post whether items displayed will be Exact or Similar. Since I have some new readers, I also wanted to mention the lesser-known fact that you don't have to get an email for every picture that you like. Personally I "like" probably a hundred pictures a day and would be overwhelmed if I got an email every time, which kept me from wanting to sign up initially. But just so you know, you can adjust your email options to get them ASAP, Daily, Weekly or Never. For step-by-step instructions with screenshots check out this post. And of course, if it's still not your thing I have the detailed breakdown on the blog every Friday.
