Affordable Nordstrom Fall Outfit Haul

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer shares an Affordable Nordstrom Fall Outfit Haul


Happy Wednesday friends! SUPER excited for the next few weeks of blog posts, this one included! Mostly because holiday content is going to hit the blog starting Friday (eeeek!!!). But today, I’m excited because I’ve rounded up a ton of cute, affordable Nordstrom Fall pieces that are sure to find their way into your closet! I found so many goodies at Nordy’s while “online window shopping” a week ago. You know, when you’re busy adding 100 things to your cart and never check out? Well these items were too good not to purchase and share with you all. Great Fall staples and all under $60 (+free ship!) with the exception of one pair of jeans and leggings (both under $100)! 😋

If you follow me on the ‘gram, you know that I do a ton of story try-ons. Meaning, I pick up a lot of clothes from our fave retailers and try them on/review them for you all in my Instagram stories! I do this both in store and at my home. And, I also do daily outfit try ons of what I’m wearing that day if it’s different from what I’m posting to my Instagram feed. I always upload each outfit to my LIKEtoKNOW.it. If you’re not sure what that is, be sure to read this post I wrote last Spring! And, side note, if you’re not already, be sure to follow me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app because I upload a TON of outfits there that don’t make it to Instagram and will be uploading holiday content there as well!

That being said, I know quite a few of you like shopping on a desktop! So, I thought it’d be a great idea to share this try-on to my blog so you can easily find every outfit in one place! I just uploaded a video try on of every outfit to my Instagram stories. I go over each piece in detail and provide styling tips. I’ll save the video to highlights too! This is a great way to get a better look at each outfit, especially the denim. Because I only have so much room to deal with when taking a photo, you can’t always get a full picture of the denim. But, you get the full view on the videos! And, of course, each outfit is already uploaded to my LIKEtoKNOW.it! Below, you’ll find something similar detailing sizing and links for each item pictured.

Fall Boots: How to Stay on Trend & in Budget

Popular Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares Fall Boots: How to Stay on Trend & in Budget


Is it just me, or are boots one of the best parts of Fall? Sure, the beautifully changing leaves, fall scented candles and family holidays are great. But, the shoes. 😋

I have a hard time not spending copious amounts of money on shoes this time of year (sorry Kevin!). Every pair just seems necessary! And, there are so many styles nowadays it’s hard to narrow down exactly which ones you need! But, I’m here to help!

Today, I’ve rounded up a TON of great Fall boots and booties at various price points so there’s something for everyone! Just a warning, from sock booties, to knee highs to over the knee boots – you’re likely not going to leave this post empty handed. 😉

First, let’s talk about some trends to watch for and some good go-to retailers for your next pair of boots! According to the Fashion Bible (AKA Vogue), some key boot trends to watch for this fall are western boots, knee highs (like I’m wearing here), block heels, kitten heels, combat boots, animal prints, and the 80’s vibe (think sock boots with skinny heels). Of all these trends, knee highs, block heels and combat boots are likely to be the longest lasting because they’ve already been around for years. And, they’re simply more practical. As much as I love the leopard bootie trend, it doesn’t go with everything like a good camel colored bootie would. But, don’t get me wrong, I’ll likely be picking these up before the month is over – LOL.

In terms of retailers, I shop at three different retailers depending on how much I’m looking to spend. I typically go to Target if I’m looking to try a trend but stay on a tight budget. For example, I picked up these sock booties (a la the 80’s vibe) from Target a few weeks ago. They’re right over $35 so it’s a good way for me to try the trend without breaking the bank! I typically go to DSW or Nordstrom if I’m looking to spend a bit more on great quality shoes. As I’ve said before, bags and shoes are something I am always willing to spend a bit more on because I expect them to last multiple years.

Below, I’ve broken down my top Fall boot & bootie choices by price – under $50, under $100 & above $100. To see the price for a certain item, simply hover over the image. To shop it, click on the image!

$50-$100


OVER $100

LOFT 2018 Friends & Family Sale Round Up + Try-On

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares a LOFT 2018 Friends & Family Sale Round Up + Try-On


Happy Wednesday everyone! And a beautiful Wednesday it is because LOFT is having their event of the season! The LOFT 2018 Friends & Family sale is underway with 40% off EVERYTHING (code: FRIENDS) and card members earn double points now through 10/22. This means card members get a $20 rewards card for every $200 spent rather than the normal $400! Cheers to that!

If you’re a frequent flyer here, you know we’re all fans of LOFT. I fondly remember the day I walked into LOFT with my mom and sister shortly after graduating college and signed up for my own card. My sister convinced me it was the only retailer card I needed upon graduating, and she was kinda right! I pretty much only bought my clothes from LOFT for a solid 3 years (lol). I have since branched out, but they’re still my go-to for quality basics for every season! Most of my basic cami’s, jeans and cardigans are from there. They have a great selection of regular, petite and now plus size options at affordable prices!

I do a TON of LOFT try-ons over on the ‘gram (all saved under my LOFT highlight). I regularly post these to my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile, but they don’t always make it to the blog in one place. I’m rounding up all of my in-stock try-on’s and outfits from the last 6 weeks or so in this post so it’s easy for you all to shop your favorite items! Altogether, we’re talking 20+ outfits made up of different LOFT pieces!

I usually round-up my current LOFT favorites on this page. I’ve updated my selections with their new arrivals and also placed those below the try-ons in case you’re looking for something new! And, on Friday, I’ll be heading to LOFT for another try-on so stay tuned! If you have requests of items you want to see, please DM me on Instagram or email me at lomeyerblog@gmail.com

For sizing – I find that, in general, LOFT tends to run TTS or slightly big. I’m typically a 24-25P in denim and a XSP-SP in tops or XXS-XS in regular tops. For reference, I am 5’2″ and anywhere between 105-110lbs. I typically wear 25P/0 or XS/SP at most retailers! When in doubt, read the reviews or order two and return the one that doesn’t fit! They have a very easy return policy! And, pro tip – you can still order through my links but avoid shipping charges but choosing in store pick up!

Easy Chic Fall Outfit + Weekend Sales

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit


Happy Friday everyone! We made it *pats self on back* 😋

It has been quite a while since I shared a single outfit post with you all. So long that I can’t even remember when I last did it! Like I mentioned on Wednesday, I got SO many ideas from all of you on Fall content you want to see. Things like boot & jacket round ups, blog posts just on petite clothing, different ways to style staples etc. And, trust me, your girl is working on those! But, I actually pushed a post I had scheduled back after getting this cardigan in the mail yesterday because it’s TOO GOOD not to share immediately. Plus it’s on sale, comes in 4 colors and a multitude of special sizes so I feel obligated to do my due diligence and share it with the masses 😉.

If you were following along last Spring, you may remember my post on an easy chic look for springtime. I posted an all white outfit with one of my favorite lightweight cardigans. Although I’ll never say you can’t wear white after Labor Day (who doesn’t want to be rule breaker?), there’s something about wearing all black in Fall and Winter that just screams chic. And, it’s the easiest combo to recreate from your closet and throw on and go when you’re in a hurry!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares an Easy Chic Fall Outfit

Cardigan | Cami | Jeans | Boots (last year – similar; budget friendly version HERE) | Belt | Horn Necklace | Choker Necklace | Lipstick in shade “Firenze”

For this outfit, I paired this super soft camel cardi with a basic cami and my favorite black denim. Like I mentioned, this cardi comes in 4 colors and any of them (including black), would work for this look! But, you could easily pair any other color cardi, jacket or blazer with this base. The beauty of a black on black base is that it works for just about any outfit combo and allows you to create endless outfits.

To break up and elevate the look a bit, I suggest adding a belt. I’m wearing my Gucci dupe (or Fucci as a follower called it 😂) that looks almost identical to the real belt but is only $24 + Prime ship! Let me take a second to say that if you’re in a market for a new belt you NEED this one. The quality is mind blowing for the price! And, I’ve had multiple people reach out not even realizing it was a fake!

In terms of sizing, the cardi comes in regular, petite & plus sizes. It does fit TTS (wearing SP) but is going quickly in this color! It’s currently 30% off making it just under $42. Which is a steal for a sweater from this retailer in my opinion! My cami comes in a ton of colors (I own 4 lol) and also fits TTS. It’s on sale for only $14! And, my denim, only $39, comes with a raw hem, which is perfect for wearing with booties. However, it’s also slim enough to pair with over-the-knee or knee high boots like I did here. It does fit TTS, and I’m wearing the “short” length (comes in short, regular & tall sizes!).

A few things before we part ways for the weekend! There are a couple of big sales to take note of! Loft is currently having 30% off all tops & sweaters! You can find my picks here. And, Express is 30-60% off site-wide. I did a huge try on saved to LIKEtoKNOW.it last weekend and you can find the videos under the “Express” highlight on my Instagram!

And, lastly, I’m heading somewhere fun tomorrow with my best blogger babes! Be sure to follow along on the ‘gram to be part of the fun!

Happy Friday everyone!

September Instagram Roundup – Top 10 Blog Bestsellers

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


Hello & Happy Wednesday peeps!

It is officially October (how, I swear July was yesterday?!). Time flies when you’re shopping the good deals and enjoying the beautiful Minnesota Fall weather! 😋

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog bestsellers roundup. And, I know you all have loved them in the past, so I thought it was time to start them up again! If you’re new around here, I’m rounding up the top 10 bestselling items with blog readers/Instagram followers for the month of September! Some of these will be old faithfuls (like these leggings), but some are new finds like this $15 blanket scarf. $15! Need I say more?

Without further ado, the top 10 bestselling items for September:


  1. Spanx Leggings: These leggings were a huge hit this month. Maybe it’s because I wear them constantly (see below for evidence). Or maybe, it’s because they’re the perfect mix of comfy and chic. I’m willing to bet both! I waited to grab these leggings for almost a year because of the price tag. Faux leather leggings can’t possibly be worth that price, right?! Wrong! I’m now deciding which version to get next that’s how much I love them! They look like real leather more so than my budget friendly faux leather leggings, and they suck you in at all the right places. I suggest sizing up one size unless you want some serious tummy control! Wearing size S here for reference (normally XS/0/25 in leggings & pants). You can also find them in a petite version here (eeek!!!) and a more budget friendly option I also own here.

2. Loft Bar-Back Sweater: One of my favorite purchases recently, this bar-back sweater was also one of the most purchased items this past month! The color just screams fall and, even at full price, it’s affordable! I’ve styled it a few ways because the color is so versatile. It looks great with denim and olive colored pants! If rust-brown isn’t your style, it also comes in a light pink color. I’m wearing a SP here & it fits TTS (comes in regular & petite sizes).

3. Amazon Henley: This best-selling item is actually the budget friendly version of the top I’m wearing below. But, I have several blogger friends who own the Amazon version and love it! Safe to say, it’s a good dupe! Coming in under $20 + prime shipping it’s really a no brainer. This style is perfect for lounging and wearing out on the weekends! It looks equally cute on it’s own or with a scarf. There’s also a ton of ways to style it – unbuttoned and tied, tucked in, untucked or undone like a cardigan. As with all Amazon items, I suggest reading the reviews to ensure you get the size that’s best for you!

4. Amazon Blanket Scarf: I feel like I hit the jackpot with this $15 scarf! Not only is it prime eligible, but the quality shocked me! I also own it in the blue version, but really like this red and brown version for Fall. It seems to go with everything and is easy to wear as a regular scarf or as a wrap! Like I said in my capsule wardrobe post, a blanket scarf is a Fall staple so picking up this budget friendly one is a must!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


5. Cardigan: Another piece from my capsule wardrobe collection, this burnt-orange cardigan has been a best-seller for several months. It’s perfect for layering and comes in tons of colors. So, if you’re like me, you buy all the colors considering it’s only $49! This one doesn’t come in petite sizes; however, I found that sizing down one does the trick. I’m wearing a XXS here and normally would be a XS in sweaters (SP in petite!)

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


6. Zella Leggings: My Zella leggings were another hot item on the blog in September! They feel like Athleta or Lululemon quality for about half the price ($58). They’re not see through and have been yoga tested by yours truly! If you’re looking for an even more budget friendly alternative, these $25 leggings from Amazon gave the Zella ones a run for their money! Both leggings fit TTS (wearing XS in both for reference). Neither come in petite, unfortunately, but given they’re high waisted the bunching on the ankles wasn’t bad enough for me to return them.

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


7. Aerie Sweatshirt: Are we sensing a theme here? Seems that you all love your comfy clothes as much as I do! My mom & dad could certainly attest to my love for comfy clothes given the hoard of sweatshirts I kept on the back of my door in high school 😂. This sweatshirt does not disappoint! In my opinion, it’s the equivalent of the light pink sweatshirt that you all loved from the Spring & Summer! It’s budget friendly (under $50) and is made to wear over leggings – longer in back. It’s comes in a few colors, I have the Koko Brown color here but also love the plum color! I’m wearing an XS and suggest sizing down one if you’re looking for a tighter fit. It’s definitely oversized!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


8. Loft Pocket Cardigan: Not to reference another post for the third time (lol), but remember when we discussed the Pantone color report in the capsule wardrobe post? This is one of the “trendy” colors for Fall! Shocked? I was too! Fall to me is all about muted browns, greens and reds. Purple? You probably belong in Spring. But, think again! This color is one of the big ones for Fall and is a great way to bring a brighter feel into the gloomy months ahead! This cardigan is ridiculously soft and is perfect for layering! It fits TTS (wearing SP) and comes in regular, petite AND plus sizes!!! Hurry if you want this one though, last time I checked sizes were flying off the shelf. See, told you it was a trend worth noting! 😉

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


9. Loft Tweed Hoodie: Another trend that’s big this Fall is tweed. And I love this casual take on the trend! This sweatshirt is the perfect weight for these transition months and is one that is easy to wear out without feeling “frumpy”. It would look equally cute paired with jeans and booties. Coming in under $70 it’s definitely on the pricier side but, in my opinion, worth every penny considering you can dress it up or down! I’m wearing a XS here and it fits TTS (works for regular & petite!)

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


10. Abercrombie Fleece: And last, but certainly not least, is the infamous Abercrombie Fleece. This has been a popular item since it first appeared on my Instagram 2 months back or so. It really reminds me of my North Face for a few reasons. It’s a slimmer fit (not oversized, like this fleece). And, it’s cozy but also stylish. However, it’s a fraction of the price of what a North Face would be! It comes in about 5 colors including a really pretty olive and white one. I’m wearing an XS here and would say to size up if you want more of an oversized fit!

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares September Instagram Roundup - Top 10 Blog Bestsellers


And, in case you’re curious, a majority of you do your shopping at Nordstrom, Loft, Amazon, American Eagle & Abercrombie. All great quality retailers that are also budget friendly!

Out of these bestsellers, what was your favorite?

See you all Friday for a post on my skincare routine! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one!

xoxo
