Instagram Roundup + Weekend Sales!

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

Happy Friday!!

I’m SO excited to be starting a new blog series for 2019! When I asked you all in Instagram stories what you’d like to see this year, I got a lot of positive feedback for a weekly Instagram roundup. One post rounding up links and sizing details for EVERY outfit posted to Instagram in the last week. One of my favorite bloggers does this every week, so served as the inspiration behind this series. Although I regularly use the app to shop other blogger’s posts, there’s no denying that having everything in one place (with no extraneous posts in between) just makes things easier!

I’ll also be including some sales from our favorite retailers at the end too! That way we all know the best deals heading into the weekend.

You can expect to (finally) see a full post about what’s to come in 2019 next week. Now that I’ve finally cleaned up the mess that was my cloffice (closet-office), I can focus 100% on work. You know what I’m referring to if you watch my Instagram stories. And, if you don’t, suffice to say I discovered I’m a hoarder this week and am dropping EIGHT bags full of clothes for donation this weekend LOL. 🙈

Also, if you’re local, don’t forget our next Minneapolis blogger closet sale is tomorrow at 365 Nicollet from 11-2. We will have all sizes represented (petite – XL). We’ll also have refreshments, treats and a photo op area! Can’t wait to meet you all there!

For outfits this week, a few sweaters from Shopbop were a top hit. Shopbop is a retailer near and dear to my heart because they are an international company founded in my hometown of Madison, WI. They have everything from designer goods (like my Chloe bag from this post) to everyday tees, like I posted below! Hint, if you’re on a budget – set a price range by sorting price from “low to high”. And, they are now owned by Amazon, which means FREE 2-DAY SHIPPING for Prime members! 🙌

In addition, these jeans from American Eagle, this fuzzy sweater from my recent Target try on and Loft (in general, lol) were all top sellers as well! All are currently having sales too!

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

The Best New Year’s Day Sales 2018


Fashion Blogger Lauren Meyer of the Lo Meyer Blog | Life with Lo discusses the Best New Years Day Sales

Happy New Year my lovelies!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I was feeling “off” a bit last week and couldn’t figure out why. Ever since we got home, I’ve felt super lethargic and just really out of it. Well, turns out Kevin gave me his cold he had over Christmas, and I’ve been sick since Friday. After literally sleeping for days, I finally woke up feeling like a human today! Must be because it’s a New Year 😉. So, although we didn’t get to do what we originally had planned last night, it does feel good having a productive (not hungover) New Year’s Day.

But, if you’re feeling lazy today because of festivities last night, don’t worry! I got your day planned out! I’ve rounded up the best New Year’s Day sales for all things fashion related! Some of my favorite stores are having their last huge sales of the season so make sure to jump on what you want now! I’m including everything I specifically bought in the slide through widget below and have a bunch of other top picks below that!

For DSW use code “Happy2018” for $20.18 off your purchase. For Goodnight Macaroon (one of my favorite online boutiques!) use code “Joy30” for 30% off EVERYTHING!

 Everything I Bought ❤

Other Amazing Sales!

Happy Shopping!

PS – that 2017 Review post will be up later this week since I couldn’t work much the last few days 😘


My Favorite Boots Under $100

Boots under $100, Vince Camuto, Steve Madden, Sam Edelman, Lo Meyer, Favorite Boots, Fall Boots, Winter Boots, Cheap Boots, Budget Shoes, Trendy Boots

Pssst! Click on each image above to check out the product! 

So, I did not intend to write a post about my favorite boots today. In fact, I had an entirely different post already completed but life got in the way. I’m gonna go ahead and blame it on the time change. If you didn’t already know, Kevin takes all of my blog photos, and I love that! It allows us to spend extra time together while I’m working. We went out this past Sunday to take our usual photos. We typically go out mid-morning or before sunset to hit those golden hours of lighting where the sun isn’t too harsh. Under estimating the severity of the time change, we went out WAY too late and only got one outfit in before the photo quality dropped dramatically. The outfit he photographed for today was ridiculously blurry. So we’ll try again this weekend (lesson learned). Instead I’m bringing out a post about shoes! And I’m not gonna lie, I am pretty excited to bring you my favorite boots under $100 today…

Out of everything, I credit my love for shoes as sparking my love for fashion and beauty in general. I have a vivid memory of this one pair of red leather kitten heels my mom had from the 80’s (maybe earlier) that I would always want to wear. If you know my mom, you know she’s not very into fashion, at least not the way my sister and I am. So thinking back on it, I’m pretty impressed she had such a daring pair of heels! I credit my obsession with shoes to those red heels and the influence of my dad’s sisters who themselves are shoe-aholics. LOL! And, based on feedback I get from you all, I know I’m not alone in my love for shoes. So, I bring you 9 of my favorite boots under $100! But, act fast! Some of these are only on sale for a little while longer!!


In my opinion, every woman should have at least three booties in her closet – a neutral open-toe pair and then two closed-toe pairs (black and tan/grey). Of course, if you’re lucky enough to live in a warmer climate, you can always have more open-toe pairs. I just prefer to not get frost-bite so opt for closed-toe more often! 😋

  1. Tan Bootie: If you pay attention to my shoes, you likely noticed that I wear these booties more often than not. I linked this year’s version as mine are from last year. This pair is SO comfy and so versatile, I wear them with literally everything – leggings, dresses, jeans. You can pair them with anything! This style as well as this one are both great options for similar, everyday booties.
  2. Black Bootie: A good pair of black booties is also an essential. In my opinion, black booties give a certain edge to an outfit and also elevate your style. If you’re only wearing leggings and an oversized sweater, black booties instantly make the look chicer. I recently ordered these, and they’re set to arrive today. I wore my older pair of Steve Madden booties into the ground (literally was coloring in the scuffed toe with sharpie LOL). So I was overdue for a new pair.
  3. Open-Toe/Peep-Toe Bootie: An open-toe option is essential for summer and transition seasons. This style is extremely versatile. And, I love that wearing this style is more comfortable than just wearing heels but is still on the dressier side. I wear my open-toes quite often and have linked a similar style since mine are sold out! I almost like these ones more with the cut-out detail! As far as transition shoes go, this pair of Toms and these Vince Camuto’s would also be great choices! Both are currently on sale for less than $100!
  4. Sock Bootie: If you’re looking to be extremely on-trend, a sock bootie is a must. This bootie comes in every fabric imaginable including patent leather, velvet and satin. I was a click away from purchasing these in lieu of these ones I got. The only reason I didn’t is because, in my area of the country, our roads and sidewalks are slush for half the year, and I didn’t want to ruin the fabric! These are a less expensive version of the sock bootie!
  5. Combat Boot: Another very on trend, but more practical style this year is the combat boot. Back in 2012, I purchased my first heeled combat boot and fell in love. I wore them all over campus and if you know how big UW-Madison’s campus is, you’ll understand this was no small feat (my moto = fashion over practicality). When combat boots started trending this year, I knew I wanted a pair since I loved my old ones that had gotten so much use. I found these ones that I believe are a more feminine take on the combat boot.
  6. Leopard Print Bootie: If there’s one bootie trend that’s everywhere this Fall, it’s the leopard bootie. I’m having a hard time justifying not buying these, but have been able to hold off so far. This may be because I purchased these leopard heels not too long ago. Leopard is becoming a new neutral so feel free to mix it with other patterns. It’s also a classic pattern that will be back year after year. You an also find these exact booties here in more sizes!
Tall Boots

Tall Boots are essential for cooler weather. They’re both practical and fashionable, which isn’t something I can say for all of my footwear! This year knee-high and over-the-knee boots are reigning supreme, and I’ve rounded up a few of my current favorites! You can see me wearing these on repeat for the next 5 months.

  1. Sam Edelman Tall Boots: These are a great under $100 alternative to the tall camel boots I wear all the time. My boots are actually sold out, but these are almost identical and made by the same designer. What I love about this particular pair is that they’re both a classic color and very versatile. They’re just tall enough to wear with a dress/skirt during the day without looking over-dressed but could also be worn for a night out. The heel isn’t too high either. I’ve definitely walked around my neighborhood in mine without issue. This pair is very similar and slightly over $100, BUT I love their fringe detail so had to share!
  2. Grey Over-The-Knee Boots: Over-the-knee boots are easier to style than you would expect. I wear this grey pair with SO many different types of outfits. From dresses, to leggings and jeans, you can wear them with pretty much anything. Don’t feel like just because the boot goes over-the-knee, your look has to be dressy. Wearing this boot with a casual outfit will make it chicer and will elevate your style! This grey color is unique and neutral enough to wear with most anything.
  3. Black Over-The-Knee Boots: Say hello to my most recent shoe-obsession. These boots are currently on sale for UNDER $70. YES, I know! I can’t even express my love for these boots! They’re extremely comfy with a shorter heel, which allows for longer wear. They are tighter fitting even on slimmer legs so they don’t fall down easily. However, I don’t find their tight fit too restricting. I’m still able to move easily! They’re a lovely suede material, which makes them look much more expensive than they are.

So which ones are you going with? I own a majority of these, paid for with my own money, and cannot recommend them enough! Again, remember some of these (#s 4, 6, & 9) are currently on sale through 11/12 so act fast!! They’ll still be available after, but may be over $100. Although, I’m always a firm believer that spending more on shoes and bags is OK since you’re guaranteed to wear them over multiple seasons. 😉

Speaking of needing to act fast – my giveaway with Smile Brilliant is almost at an end. Make sure you enter to get your own teeth whitening kit! You can enter here and read all about my experience with the kit here. 🤗

I hope everyone has had a great week so far!! I’m currently hermiting in doors as much as possible since we’re having one of the coldest starts to November in years (or so the news says)! Kevin and I go to the DMV to change our licenses over to MN tomorrow, and I’m kind of nervous. Did you know that in the state of MN, you have to take a written exam to get a license? Yes, even if you took the exam when you were 16! I shouldn’t be nervous since I had to know all of the driver’s statutes in MN for my corporate job but I’m still nervous, not gonna lie! Wish us luck!!



Perfect Transition Sweaters for Fall under $50

Fall is officially upon us! Well not officially, but it sure feels like it! With temps in the low 60’s here in the upper-Midwest, I’m bringing out all of my transition sweaters and putting them to good use. And I’m using our impending move to Minneapolis as even more of a reason to wear cold weather clothing. I mean, 5 hours further north might as well be in the arctic, right?! Right.

Speaking of the move, Kevin and I have *officially* landed our apartment in Uptown (a neighborhood in Minneapolis). We’re set to move in the next two weeks. This means lots of packing for me as Kevin is already working up in the cities, and I’m the only one here to pack. Although my day-to-day schedule will not be like this permanently, I have enjoyed being able to wake up and dictate what I do for the day. I spend a majority of my mornings and early afternoon doing blog/fashion industry education, which includes sprucing up my website. The afternoons/evenings are spent packing, which will be the part that will change once we’re all moved and unpacked (finally!). Days are busy, but so far I’m loving every minute of it!

That being said, I’ve been on the lookout for some new fall sweaters now that we’re moving further north (any excuse to shop, am I right?). A few of these have made it into my closet, and a few are on my wishlist. What’s better? They’re ALL under $50 and are good quality to boot. It’s difficult to find a good quality sweater under $80 these days so I felt it was my duty as an avid shopper to round these up and bring them to your attention! Keep in mind, some of these are on sale RIGHT NOW so act fast! Some of these prices won’t last long!

As far as cardigans go, this one may be my favorite. So much so, I purchased it in two different colors (green and black). Make sure to size down as it does run large. I typically wear an XS but sized down to an XXS.  This cardi comes in right at $49 and is thicker so can act as both a coat and a sweater for those chilly Fall mornings. I wore this one to an outdoor play that went into the nighttime hours, and it kept me warm even when the temp was dropping into the 50’s!

This cardigan from Target is similar to the first only comes in at almost half the price. It’s definitely a lighter material but is a good “dupe” of the first if you’re looking for one. I purchased this one in grey and have already layered it over a few blouses. It’s perfect for those September-October days that are warmer in the sun but cooler in the shade/indoors.

This distressed rugby stripe sweater from Nordstrom is a favorite at the moment (Update: sold out 😭 but here is a very similar sweater for less!). The distressed top trend is something I have stayed away from. Mostly, I have a hard time purchasing something that has holes in it and justifying paying for it (let’s ignore my 5 pairs of distressed jeans for a minute). I don’t know about you, but there’s a difference for me in purchasing distressed tops v. jeans. Maybe the tops seem more delicate, therefore, more likely to fall apart. Whatever the case, I had been eyeing this sweater for a month or so and finally made the purchase just a week ago when it was marked down to under $20. ACT FAST, this sweater is STILL on sale through 9/10. For reference, I’m 5’2” and typically wear a Small Petite in sweaters. A XS in this sweater fit perfectly for that baggy but not-too-boxy look.

Victorian Collars are going to be a HUGE trend this fall. But, give me anything over the top and frilly, and I’ll probably wear it, trends be damned. I purchased a few similar blouses earlier this summer (evidenced here) and saw this sweater at Target this week and This sweater is part of the new “A New Day” collection at Target. This is a line you must check out if you haven’t already! It’s perfect for the young professional. This top comes in at $25 so it’s right on budget.

This cowl neck tank is very similar to one that I own from Francesca’s that I purchased last year. I love tops like this as they’re easy to dress up and down. Last year, I wore mine with a black cardigan at Thanksgiving. I also like to pair it with a jean jacket for an edgier look. A sweater tank is perfect for transition weather because you can wear it alone with jeans for a warmer day or layer it if need be.

This ruffle, cold-shoulder top is something I’ve been eyeing for a while but haven’t purchased yet (Update: sold out! Here’s a very similar one in stock!). The reason why I love it is because it’s lighter than your typical sweater, on trend, but still a classic silhouette and color. This top is perfect on it’s own and would look great with booties or over the knee boots. I think it goes without saying that a long sleeve, cold-shoulder top is a perfect blend of both summer and winter wear.

So there you have it! 6 Fall transition sweaters that I would recommend for the transition season that is upon us and pieces you can style into Winter as well. Make sure to subscribe (below) for updates on an upcoming post explaining the process!
