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!

xoxo

Happy Friday everyone!

Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking of your New Year’s Eve outfit! I can’t believe Christmas is coming up so soon, who’s gonna finish my shopping for me?! 😋

I unintentionally picked up most of this outfit from the same retailer. Which means everything is super budget friendly, AND it makes it easier to shop it all in one place! So, if you’re someone who likes to dress up for New Year’s but still be comfy, this look is for you!

For me, New Year’s Eve is one of the only times of the year (save my birthday), when I will wear sequins and sparkles. Otherwise, my style is a bit more subdued! While looking for a good outfit, I came across this $24 black sequined, velvet skirt! I love this one because the sequins aren’t overly flashy and don’t cover the whole skirt. That way part of the velvet shows through and allows for a mix of texture. This makes it a bit more unique and chic as opposed to a skirt covered in sequins (which makes me think back to my college party days, lol!).

For an easy, chic and warm(er) outfit, I paired this skirt with my go to black turtleneck for layering and my faux fur vest you all have seen a ton of on my Instagram! I’ve included a few similar options in the “shop the post” section at the bottom of this page because both the turtleneck & vest have limited sizes! And, if there was ever a time to wear over the knee boots, it’s on NYE. My boots are currently on sale! I wore them in a snow storm last year, and they held up! So, I can personally attest to their quality in winter weather! I would recommend spraying them with this spray beforehand!

Lastly, if you’re looking for a great bag to see you through from day to night, I cannot recommend this one enough! I picked it up from Shopbop last Spring as a gift to myself, and it’s worth every penny! It also comes in a larger version, which is on my wish list!

For sizing – I’m wearing an XS in the turtleneck, vest and skirt. Everything fits TTS, except I would size up one in the vest if you plan to wear it over sweaters! I find that my size is pretty much the same across this retailer. And, the boots fit TTS and actually stay up on your legs!

Also, side note, a ton of our fave retailers like LOFT, American Eagle and Express are having huge sales + free shipping today! And, as always, Nordstrom offers free shipping! You can head to my Loft & Express favorites page to see my top picks of their new arrivals! Both updated in the last 24 hours! 🤗And, if you need holiday outfit inspo (think Christmas Eve/Day or holiday parties), you can find a huge roundup of ideas here!


I hope you all have a fun weekend ahead! Kev & I will be spending tomorrow celebrating my girlfriend Emerson’s birthday with a few friends so we’re looking forward to that!

Have a great weekend everyone!

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!

Let’s talk about rewardStyle/LIKEtoKNOW.it! If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ve likely seen me post photos saying “like or screenshot this to shop it on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app!” Some of you may know what this is but others of you may have no idea what I’m talking about. So, let’s clear that up!

rewardStyle is an invite only affiliate network for bloggers that makes blog and/or social media posts shoppable to anyone through a platform called LIKEtoKNOW.it. A blogger can link her outfit details through a photo on social media so you can instantly access and shop anything she’s wearing. Similarly, when you click on a link in a blog post, it will send you to the product’s site.

Before becoming a blogger, LIKEtoKNOW.it was one of the most fun things to me about scrolling through my Instagram feed. Even if I don’t purchase something, online “window shopping” is one of my favorite things to do (true shopping addict). I would regularly like my favorite bloggers’ photos just to see where they shopped and, more often than not, would find myself purchasing some of their more versatile items because, why not?! It was too easy.

If you’ve been wondering where you can buy what I’m wearing, wonder no longer! It’s really as simple as the instructions below.

Using LIKEtoKNOW.it:
  1. Sign up HERE (takes literally a minute) or download the app from the app store (iPhones only)
  2. Get my outfit details:
    1. On Instagram by
      • “liking” my post when you see the #liketkit hashtag in the caption (or the heart in the lower righthand corner like the photo directly above). This will send the outfit details to your email or app within 5 minutes
      • Take a “screenshot ” of my post from Instagram and within 10 seconds you’ll have my outfit details in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app! (Don’t worry, you can delete the screenshot later without losing the details in the app!)
      • Enter the hyperlink in the caption of the photo into your browser
    2. Within a blog post –
      • Click on a link about any products (like the ones below the image in this post) to be redirected to the product’s page
      • Edit: Almost forgot this one! You can also click on the product images in a shoppable widget like the one below and be redirected to the product’s page
  3. Shop away!

 

Here’s the link to my LIKEtoKNOW.it page so you can get an idea of how the shoppable photos look once you enter the app or put the hyperlink into the browser!

Here’s another great article to give you background on where this platform came from.

In personal news, after a very busy month packing and moving, Kev and I are officially moved in to our Minneapolis apartment! We love it here so far! It’s weird being back in a big city as I haven’t lived in one since I studied abroad in the UK, but I’m loving it so far. The amenities alone make it worth it. We’re almost done unpacking and once we have everything put away I’ll be doing a mini-apartment tour on my insta-stories so stay tuned! 😀

Have questions about using the app? Give me a shout, let’s talk!

Have a great weekend everyone!
