Shopbop Spring Sale Roundup

Shopbop Spring Sale 2019 ; Style Blogger Lauren Meyer shares the Shopbop Spring Sale 2019

Shopbop is having an amazing sale right now! As I’ve mentioned before, Shopbop is one of my fave retailers to shop at. They started in my hometown, offer free 1-3 day worldwide shipping (I know!) and have so many staple brands! I picked up these jeans during their Fall sale a few years back, and they were a follower fave in 2018! I also ordered another pair of these sandals for summer! They’re definitely an investment piece, but I wore mine all last summer, and they look brand new!

I used to think that Shopbop carried exclusively expensive, designer brands. But they actually carry a ton of more affordable, great quality brands like Levi’s, Madewell, Bauble Bar and Free People!

I’ve already hinted at this in stories, but I’m doing a HUGE spring break/resort-wear try on Thursday, and a lot of the items below will be included! Snag them now before they go out of stock!

The sale is for all orders $200+ so now is the time to stock up on staples or those investment pieces that have been on your wishlist! Save 15-25% off with code GOBIG19. FYI you can order the Tory Burch sandals ($198) + a small item like this (or sort items from low-high on this page) to easily save the 15%!

Instagram Roundup + Weekend Sales

Instagram Roundup + Weekend Sales! Style Blogger Lauren Meyer shares an Instagram Roundup + Weekend Sales!


Officially dubbing January 2019 as “The Month of Migraine”. Only partially joking. In reality, this is the first migraine free week I’ve had in almost three weeks. Kind of crazy! But it feels good to be back to a new normal. I’ve had to drastically cut down on nighttime screen time and limit my caffeine intake. As someone who’s suffered with migraines for literally half her life, I should have guessed my love for coffee and working long hours would do me in eventually.😝

But, it’s a new month! I’m keeping up with the weekly Instagram roundups this month since I had such a positive response from you all when I started them last month. This month you can also expect to see Spring Break wear (t-minus 3 weeks until we fly south and escape this arctic mess), a round up of many ways to wear the Spanx leggings, and Spring transition outfits. I promise Spring is coming… eventually.

Over on Instagram, I’ve started a weekly beauty series that’ll run through most of March. I’m sharing a beauty tutorial every week, starting with my top knot tutorial this week. Everything will be saved to my highlights so you can view it in the future! I’ll also be sharing tutorials on how I straighten/dry shampoo my hair (a hot topic in DMs this week), my foundation/concealer process, bronzing/contouring, everyday shadow, easy beauty hacks & more! I’ve also rounded up/updated my beauty routines under the “beauty routines” tab on my blog’s top bar. You can now see my updated skincare/haircare routines and soon, my makeup routine!

Also on the ‘gram this week, I shared try ons for Valentine’s day as well as a huge Amazon haul. Both of these try on videos are saved to my highlights and every outfit is also uploaded on this page.

I’m sharing a roundup of this week’s outfits below! Before we begin, here were a few top sellers! This sweater that was part of my Amazon haul. And this Loft sweater that was a 2018 follower fave and now is on major sale!! And for another week, this pair of denim (currently on sale) were another top seller. If you haven’t picked these up, drop what you’re doing and check out now! They are SO flattering & come in regular, short & long. They are cropped so if you’re petite and want them full length, order regular!


All of this week’s outfits are rounded up below with links and sizing details below the photos!

All January I kept meaning to do a 2018 year in review post, and now it’s 2/8. lol! January was just not my month! But it happens. I’m ready to jump into the rest of my content for you this year so let’s just do a quick little recap because, honestly, 2018 was one of the best years! My business grew in a way I literally only dreamed of. Long nights and early mornings were all worth it to watch something take off that I’ve built from the ground up.

I’m incredibly grateful for the friendships I’ve made this year in the Minneapolis blogging community. They’ve helped me grow immensely. I’m also grateful for an understanding husband and family. It’s not easy telling your loved ones you’re leaving a corporate gig with benefits to go into the world of blogging full time. lol! I’m surprised Kevin didn’t just die from pure anxiety at some points early last year. But, my family’s support as well as Kevin’s has truly been unmatched. Which I think was evident by the amount of support I got for spending the majority of the Thanksgiving holiday with my nose in my phone finding Cyber Week deals and Kevin’s freezing his fingers off to get those winter blog shots!

And, I want to of course, thank all of you! I quite literally would not be where I am today without all of you. Please know that your reading this blog, your instagram likes/comments, your repinning my content on Pinterest, telling your girlfriends, grandmothers, aunts, daughters and sisters about me is what keeps this blog running. Without all of you, I wouldn’t be able to keep doing what I do!

And, if there’s anything I learned, it’s that working 24/7 isn’t always the best thing for my followers, my creativity, my health or my sanity. Sure, that sounds logical. But when you’re a one-woman show and you love what you do, it’s easy to over-work and not even realize it. After this past month of migraines, I’ve learned some important parameters to be the best functioning blogger I can be 100% of the time while still maintaining a healthy balance.

I have so many exciting things coming up in 2019 including LOTS of travel and cannot wait to take you all along with me! Thank you for making 2018 one of the best years yet!

How to Style a Bralette 4 Ways

Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares How to Style a Bralette 4 Ways


Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!

Is it me, or did this week just fly by? Sometimes, it feels like holiday weeks crawl by, but this was the exact opposite! Not complaining though, we have another fun weekend planned. Tomorrow, I’m heading out to a blogger event with some of my blogger besties and after we’re celebrating my one year blogiversary – AKA my blog has been live for a year on 6/4! So, some celebrations are in order!

As my wedding series wraps up in the next few weeks, I’m thinking about starting a blogging series. I get a lot of messages on Instagram about growth tactics, engagement tips and questions about how I edit my photos. I thought it might be helpful to answer those in a post. Thoughts? Send me a message or comment if you’d be interested!

Today, we’re discussing another topic I get questions on quite frequently – how to style a bralette.

Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know that bralettes have been “in” for the last year or two. They’re more comfortable than a regular bra and are perfect for layering under a cami as they’re meant to be seen. Which means you can ditch your uncomfortable strapless bra and opt for a bralette instead!

But, there is a right and wrong way to style a bralette. If you’re not careful, you can go from fashionable to distasteful really quickly. So, I’m sharing 4 different basic ways to style a bralette with tops you likely already have in your closet!


First, let’s address the bralettes in question!

This first bralette is from Free People and retails for $38. It comes in 10+ colors so you’re sure to find something you like! I love this bralette because it’s unique. The detail is different than your standard lace, and it really stands out. I also love all of the different colors it comes in. I’m currently coveting the “ballet” color! I would suggest sizing up if you’re between sizes to provide more coverage (treat it like a swim top) and hand wash only. One of the big negative reviews is that the straps break easily. I’ve never had this issue, and I think it’s because I hand wash it v. throwing it in the washer. Also, because it doesn’t have padding, I will wear pasties like these under it to avoid any issues!

The second bralette is $14 from Amazon (with free Prime shipping!). Honestly, I wear this bralette more than the first. It provides more coverage, and I have it in more colors. If you’re full chested, this is the bralette for you! I would suggest getting the padded version regardless because it adds more support and makes it easier to wear alone with tees. I got a S and feel it fits TTS.

With a Top off One Shoulder: This can be done with a tee or a long sleeve shirt! Take any regular shirt you own and pull the neckline off one shoulder so your bralette is peeking through! I’ve done this with both my Free People bralette and my Amazon bralette. Pro tip- if you plan to do this, unbutton the top button in your shirt OR size up one in the top to make it easier to pull down!

With a Cami/Tank Top: My favorite way to wear a bralette is under a cami or tank. It instantly makes any old cami new again and essentially gives you a brand new top! Also, with a cami like this one or this one, it’s a great way to add more coverage to an otherwise low cut top.

With a Tee: If you have a tee with a wider neckline (boatneck, vneck etc), you can have just the straps peek through to dress up an otherwise casual look like I did here. This is when it’s great to have that padded bralette I mentioned!

Under a Button Down: Although I’ve done this several times, this is the only photo I could find where you could actually see the bralette without my hair covering it (#fail). Unfortunately, this bralette is no longer available, but this one would also look cute! Button downs + shorts + a bralette is a perfect look for a night out during the summer. Unbutton the top few buttons of your blouse so the bralette can show through a bit and you instantly take an otherwise “daytime” look to “night”! And, you also get more use out of your work tops!

These are 4 of my go-to ways to style a bralette! I hope you found this useful when you’re trying to style yours!

Have a great weekend everyone!

What I Bought For Our Beach Vacation

Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Lo Meyer, What I Bought For Our Beach Vacation, What to Bring On a Beach Vacation

Happy Friday Everyone! I moved some items around this week and ended up having this Friday blog post open! Luckily enough, I just wrapped up a majority of my shopping for our upcoming vacation to Sanibel Island next month. I took an Instagram poll and most of you voted to see what I bought! Here are the products I got and those that I recommend buying for your best Spring vacation! These products are sure to last you well into Summer to get the most out of your buy!

Side note, in my last post, I mentioned that I spend under $200/month on items for the blog. To be honest, it’s usually under $150. This month was obviously an outlier due to an upcoming vacation; however, most of these items I’ll wear into Summer thus saving money in later months. Just so we’re not confused! 😉


SWIMSUITS

I got two new suits for this vacay. Lately, I’ve been really loving one pieces because they provide more coverage from the sun, and feel like more of a fashion statement than bikinis! Skin cancer “runs” in my family in the sense that we’re all naturally fair skinned. The more I can cover up now to avoid that (and early aging) I do! For this vacay, I got two new suits. This $39 one-piece from AdoreMe that actually looks very similar to one by Becca but is 1/4 of the cost. AdoreMe has the cutest swimwear, sleepwear and lingerie for super good prices. I also picked up these high-waisted bottoms (on sale for $19! ) from Old Navy and this bikini top from ASOS.

I’m also including this coverup I purchased from ASOS. It comes in both regular, petite and tall sizes which is awesome! I bought my usual size in petite and it fits perfectly! It’s very flattering on, and I have this idea that I could layer a slip dress underneath it to wear it off the beach…

CLOTHING

When buying clothing items for the trip, I wanted to buy pieces I knew I would wear into the Summer. These would be pieces that are beach and streetwear appropriate.

This thermal from Urban Outfitters is one of my favorite purchases! It’s perfect for transition weather and will look super cute with white or denim shorts. I’ll likely layer it over a cami or bralette like this one. But, it would also look great layered over a swimsuit. It comes in 8 colors and is an oversized fit.

I know I will be wearing this cami and this tie top from Free People all summer. I love the “orange coast” color! I’ll layer a bralette underneath since it’s lower cut on the sides. I had a hard time picking a color for both of these so do not be surprised if you see these tops come up in different colors throughout the next 7 months!

This washed black denim skirt from Asos is another favorite purchase. It comes in regular, petite and tall sizes (FYI ASOS frequently has all sizes!). I love the dark wash to it and think it’ll look great worn into Fall as well. I’ll likely style this one with a knotted tee and wedges or flat sandals. Also, in case you haven’t heard of ASOS, I first discovered it while studying abroad. They have great affordable clothing that has a similar quality and style to H&M. They ship worldwide (for free!) and have free returns.

Lastly, I’m really excited to get these white shorts from Vestique in the mail. I got a denim pair similar to these from Vestique last summer and they were, by far, the clothing item I received the most comments on from my followers. Incredibly comfortable and right on budget at $38, I know I’ll wear these white ones constantly this summer! They are a little big in the waist so size down! (I wear an XS and typically wear size 0)

SHOES & BAGS

THESE SHOES OH MY GOD!! As I’ve said before,  shoes are really the way to my heart. And these ones are what my dreams are made of. This brand also makes my favorite booties (recognize these?!) so I know they’ll be super comfortable and fit TTS. To be honest, I had a hard time deciding between the blush color and the yellow color. We all know I’m a neutral lover, but there was something about these yellow ones that just called to me so I went out on a limb and got the yellow ones! It’s hard to contain my excitement!

This bag from ShowPo is one of the best dupes I’ve seen. The bamboo bag you see every blogger have starts at $120+ but this little guy is just over $65. If you’re like me, you’re thinking how in the heck a bag like this could be practical. But after reading a few blog posts and stalking a few bloggers who used it (lol, just being honest), I realized it’s actually hard to see the contents inside the bag. Weird, right? Either way, this is the type of bag that just makes you feel chic when you have it. It’s perfect for summer weddings and those days at the beach!

BEAUTY

I plan to a do a more thorough post on products for the beach so am just keeping this one short and simple for now! I picked up a bottle of this spray sunscreen which acts like a makeup setting spray and sunscreen at the same time! Genius!

RUNNERS-UP

And, if I had endless amounts of money, here is everything else I would buy…
