LIKEtoKNOW.it

Hey again! So this post is going to be short, sweet, and to the point because the point is simple…that this app is the BEST!

Okay so how many of you have seen photos of super cute outfits (on Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) and you’ve tried to search for what the model is wearing and can never figure it out? Because that has happened to me so many times.

LIKEtoKNOW.it is an app where you can actually shop based off of screenshots and pictures. Basically you download the app, create an account, and then anytime you see a photo with the LIKEtoKNOW.it symbol posted on the photo you can take a screenshot and it will appear in the app with a drop down list of everything the model is wearing.

26995167-71efd248-4d6b-11e7-92df-ca5531c5e3b1

∧∧ This is the symbol that will be posted on the photos so just look for this. Sometimes it is also in like light gray too.

Also, if you happen to come across an influencer for the app and want to shop from their photo, all you have to do is like the photo and they will send a shopping link straight to your inbox. I know right, it’s like the best thing ever invented but yet the worst because I have to avoid going broke lol. I have had an account for a decent amount of time now so I actually have a bunch of influencers that I follow on the app and on their Instagram accounts and it is so fun to go on and view their outfits that they post. I would highly recommend this app because there are so many fashion models that go through this app so most of the time when you see a picture of a cute outfit, they are influencers for this app which means that you’ll be able to find the outfit or piece of clothing that you like in the photo. I definitely would recommend taking some time to check this app out because it is great.

All you have to do is type LIKEtoKNOW,it into the search bar in the app store and the app photo looks like this.

I also have simple direction photos posted for you guys to take a look at as well. Hope you enjoyed this one and let me know what you think of the app!

Fall Trends 2018

Hey everyone! So, life got a little ahead of me last week unfortunately and I didn’t get a chance to post (I’m sorry!). Instead, I am going to do all of those posts that I was supposed to do last week this week instead, starting off with Fall Trends 2018. I wanted to give you guys some info on what seems to be trending for the fall because it is always so exciting to see new trends come out each season. Fall 2018 seems to me very pattern oriented and a splash of flashy and I think I’m loving most of them. Check it out!  

1. Tan and Burnt / Rust Orange

Both Tan and Burnt Orange seem to be trending everywhere this season. I personally love both of these colors so this one is a thumbs up for me. Since this is trending, you can basically find things in these colors anywhere, but my favorite is this caramely tan top from Red Dress Boutique. Also, this adorable pair of dark burnt orange booties also from Red Dress Boutique.

2. Leopard Print

Leopard Print is totally in right now. You can just about find anything you are looking for in Leopard this fall. Shirts, pants, belts, hats, etc. It seems thought that leopard print mules and shoes are very much a thing though. I have always secretly liked leopard print even back when it was a total no-go, so I am actually kind of happy about this one lol. Banana Repulic has a cute, tasteful, skinny belt that is cute and also Red Dress Boutique has a pair of Leopard Print Peep Toe Slide Heels.

3. Tortoise Shell Patterned Jewelry

So, this is one that I didn’t think I would care for at first bur eventually it grew on me. This one is pretty simple and a majority of the trend is earrings. I actually got my pair on Amazon for about $14 and love them.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H3NV7ZM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

4. Hair Scarves

Hair Scarves are another trend that I LOVE. I think they are so cute and can add such a pop factor to even the most casual outfit. I actually am obsessed I think I have like 4 now lol. But, when I was in California they had a Free People store there and they had a huge selection of them. They are pretty much all over but I like Free People’s best and they have so many that I just attached their general hair accessories page. Also, Lulu’s has some cute ones.

5. Color Blocking

I also really enjoy Color Blocking as well. Color Blocking is basically multiple solid, bold colors mixed into the article of clothing. It is really popular to use with sweaters and cardigans. Instead of stripes, I think it is unqiue- it adds some more dimension and pops. Lots of places have them but these are two of my favorites.

6. Plaid

Okay, sooo plaid. I am impartial to plaid. Personally, I really don’t care for it and I don’t think it flatters me very much. Well, let me specify, not flannel plaid, plaid like Clueless plaid. Although, there are lots of people that love it. It goes either way. Since I don’t really care for it, I don’t usually pay attention to it but I do know that every time I go into a store I’ve seen it, so for those of you that like plaid you can find it just about anywhere.

7. Flare Jeans / Bell Bottoms

I remember the days when Bell Bottoms were such a taboo thing like if you wore anything wider than a skinny jean, it was over lol. But now, Bell Bottoms are coming back and I really like it because its such a different look than wearing skinny jeans all of the time. I have such a hard time finding them honestly because I am 5’0 and I always have to get them hemmed so mine are from American Eagle since I could get them in a “short” cut. But, for anyone normal sized you can find them everywhere. I personally like the ones on Red Dress Boutique’s website, they have lots of cute options.

Okay, so that is all for this post. Next, I will probably be posting on Friday but it is going to be about one of my absolute FAV apps called LIKEtoKNOW.it. This app is awesome, I promise you will want to read this one so don’t miss it!

Fall Essentials

Hey Everyone!

Since it is quite a gloomy Saturday morning, I figured I would put up my second post for the week. Everyone needs those few things that are essential to your closet, and even your life. So, today I am posting about Fall Season Essentials. Next week, I am going to be doing a Fall 2018 Trends post, which will kind of tie into this post so be sure to be on the lookout for that one 🙂

Okay so there are those things, (especially during the fall) that you just need in your life. First, we have the perfect sweater. Some people like full sweaters (I am one of them) and others prefer cardigans, but both are kinda essential to have during the fall. Especially if you have a cute tank or short sleeve but it is too cold out, you have to have that perfect cardigan that can go with any outfit.

Personally, I am a fan of longer cardigans because I just think opposed to a regular length cardigan it gives your outfit some dimension and spices it up a bit. Lulus (which you will see this company on here a lot, I love them) has a really, simple long cardigan that is so cozy (I actually just ordered it in grey) and they are solid colors to go with anything.

https://www.lulus.com/products/graceful-ways-heather-grey-long-cardigan-sweater/466302.html

2820170_466302

If you want another cute suggestion, I actually just preordered this one from VICI Collection (who is another one of my absolute favorite stores) and it should be here this week but I thought it was so cute and perfect for fall because of the coloring.

PREORDER – Caffe Mocha Colorblock Cardigan

Second, you have to have a cute jacket. As for me, I love suede in the fall so a cute suede jacket is my go-to. But, whether it is denim, leather, suede, whatever you like best, a jacket is a must. My favorite one (actually 2) that I have currently are from Abercrombie and Fitch, they aren’t on the site because I got it last year so it is sold out, but here is their website for their jacket options this fall. I have to say, they have yet to disappoint me as far as cuteness and quality. Plus, they have outerwear sales all of the time.

https://www.abercrombie.com/shop/us/womens-coats-and-jackets?icmp=ICT%3AFALL18%3AF%3AHP%3A0%3AOTW%3APDT%3AX%3ASeptWk1

Lulus does have a cute selection as well so here is their link.

https://www.lulus.com/categories/10_863/outerwear.html

Okay next on the list is a bralette. Personally, bralettes are one of the cutest ways to spice up an outfit and (much more comfortable than a regular bra). To me, the BEST would have to be the Free People One Adella Brallete. I think it is by far the cutest one I have found and most comfortable. It also looks really nice underneath clothes because sometimes bralettes that are too thick show through and it just doesn’t look right but this one doesn’t do that. I know it is a little more on the expensive side but trust me when I say it is worth it. I just got the mocha for fall and it is adorable.

Next, is a cute pair of slide on mules, flats, or loafers. You will see this again in my Fall Trends 2018 post next week, but loafers are really in style right now. So, here is one of the cutest and cheapest options.

52730440

Lastly in the clothes category is a skirt. You’ve already seen this one before so I’ll keep it short but I can’t turn away from this skirt. It is the Free People Modern Femme Denim Mini. If you look through their site, they also have it in leather, suede, cord, and patterns.

https://www.freepeople.com/shop/modern-femme-denim-mini/?category=skirts&color=001

Okay so as far as other fall necessities, a cute lip color is definitely necessary. I live by these lipsticks and have them in like 8 different colors, but my favorite fall colors are Front Row and Vibin.

https://www.ulta.com/tarteist-quick-dry-matte-lip-paint?productId=xlsImpprod15281013

Next, accessories. My favorite fall accessory is a really good, cute felt hat.

_103461873

And finally, it wouldn’t be fall without a warm drink, but with that you need a mug right?

https://marleylilly.com/product/monogrammed-coffee-mug

https://www.target.com/p/threshold-153-jumbo-porcelain-coffee-mug-27oz-teal/-/A-52113123

59aee4123b8862.09872733

Oh, and as far as my favorite fall drink, Starbucks PSL hands down, but sometimes that can be too overpowering for me because it literally tastes like a dessert, so if you get a regular latte with half caramel and half pumpkin it is just as good, half the calories, and not as heavy as a regular PSL.

Well that is all for todays post, be sure to comment or like if you enjoyed reading it. Next week I will be posting three times, the first post under the Fashion tab and it will be Fall Trends 2018, the second will be under the Lifestyle tab about the app LiketoKnow.it, and the third will be under the beauty tab about Fall Makeup Looks. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend 🙂

Back to School Essentials

Hi Everyone! So for some of us (college kids like me) Back to School was a couple of weeks ago, others just started yesterday, some starting today, or even if your just getting back to a normal routine, I wanted to post about some essentials that have helped me get back into the swing of things and ready for the new school / work year. For me, school started last week since I go at locally, but since I work as a wedding assistant it is also going into the busy season because everyone loves to get married in the fall. So basically life is hitting full force right now lol, but with the help of some super small essentials, it makes everything easier.

First off, where would we be without a good planner? I mean, I can only speak for myself, so I would not be doing too hot. But, if any of you agree with me then this may help you. I am super picky when it comes to finding a good planner because I like to have a lot of space to write and space to write for each day so finding a good planner is sometimes complicated. To be honest, I actually found my current planner in T.J. Maxx. Although, I have done my research and depending on your budget these are three of the best ones out there.

Okay, sorry to be so broad here but honestly Target has some really nice planners for a pretty cheap price. So if you just click on this link, it brings you to there website with all of the planners that they offer. Picking the right planner is always up to the person thats buying it and different ones may be appealing to different people. So, here is the link to everything they’ve got.

https://www.target.com/c/planners-calendars-school-office-supplies/-/N-4yiie

As far as a planner that it a little more expensive, but is REALLY nice and helpful would be the Lilly Pulitzer planners. I feel like everyone raved about these planners for such a long time and I always wanted to figure out what the hype was all about. Sure enough, everyone was right because these planners are awesome. They also have a lot of space for notes in the back as well which is nice. I currently have the pocket sized version for my purse because I like to have two (sorry I am crazy).

https://www.lillypulitzer.com/accessories-gifts/agendas-planners/

Okay, so I have never actually tried this planner but I have heard of this brand and I figured maybe I would try it out when its time for me to get a new planner. It is called Erin Condren and the thing that makes these different is that they are completely customizable so you can put anything you want inside to fit your needs and what you look for in a planner. If anyone needs a new planner and wants to try this one out, let me know what you think of it because I would love to know! 

Next, writing utensils are a must and especially when they keep you nice and organized. So, my go to are these Gelocity colored pens by BIC. As cheesy as it sounds, I love using these pens because it keeps me nice and organized. I actually have a color coding system going on in my planner with these pens and it helps me out a ton.

https://www.amazon.com/BIC-Gel-ocity-Retractable-Assorted-8-Count/dp/B01N5TKJBH/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1536195308&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=bic%2Bgelocity%2Bpens&dpPl=1&dpID=51kE1X1zZ-L&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1

Next, everyone needs a cute tote to carry all of your things around. So depending on your price range, here are a few options. 

These are totes from a super cute website called Marley Lilly. Marley Lilly is a website that specializes in monograms so you can basically get anything you want and they put your monogram on it which is adorable. They have so many different varieties of totes/bags, so choose whichever is right for you.

https://marleylilly.com/category/bags 

This one is a bit more expensive but I still love it. Tory Burch has the cutest totes ever, so this one is one that is a little bit more durable. Also, if you like the “mini” version, it is on sale right now on their website. 

https://www.toryburch.com/ella-tote-%7C-001-%7C-totes/190041778522.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o1&scid=scplp190041778522&sc_intid=190041778522&gclid=CjwKCAjw_b3cBRByEiwAdG8Wqka7l2-2O5Ck6CoN6iE6fQa0UiVfWMNSM2RB910yYV7XAoLkyRVINxoCvsMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CMa7kYyZpd0CFUoNNwoda7EEXw

Okay, so with getting back to school and work and the gym also comes getting back to germs. Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers are a must for me, I keep them in every one of my bags. They are the best because not only are they a convenient size, they also come in practically every scent and smell amazing.

http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/s?q=Hand+sanitizer+&lang=en_US 

So now we are getting to the good stuff…if you drink a lot of water or even if you don’t drink a lot of water but need a good, durable water bottle, get a S’well bottle. They are on the more expensive side when it comes to water bottles but trust me you will not be disappointed. I have taken mine to the beach on days that were literally 100 degrees and my water has stayed ice cold in the bottle, its honestly amazing. And, if you’re a coffee drinker, S’well also sells tumblers and coffee bottles to keep your drinks hot as well. I have the marble one and I HIGHLY recommend it.

https://www.swellbottle.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjw_b3cBRByEiwAdG8WqgYmQO3fTbHPyLBuIH06jsUB3YkZjtpeD91MBrXEubUyV-xKDWpoHRoC5cAQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Okay, I know this is a little long but I just have two more things left. For some of us, getting back to school and work and getting back into a regular routine also means getting back to a good workout regimen and diet. I personally love kick boxing and running. I am currently training for a Spartan race in October which will be super fun. Plus, I’m kind of ready to get my ass kicked after spending the summer sitting on it. Anyways, as much as I love kick boxing and running sometimes it is hard to get to class or get outside because I am busy or the weather is bad. So, I found SWORKIT. SWORKIT is an app with pre-set workouts that you can accomplish right from your house. It also allows you to customize your own workouts based on what they offer through the app. I have come to find that it has been super helpful, especially on the days where I can’t find the time to get out to workout. Here is the link that attaches to the website, but if you have a smartphone download the mobile app instead.

https://sworkit.com

LASTLY (sorry I know this one was long), one of the BEST investments I have made, even though some may not agree, is my Apple Watch. I actually love this thing I swear to you. There are so many features that it offers that have really helped me throughout my day. First, just the fact of wearing a watch so I don’t have to locate my phone if I want to see the time, plain and simple. Second, the fact that my text messages come through right to  the watch is a perfect feature. When I am in class and I can’t really text that much, it is nice to at least be able to see my texts. Also, when I am at work and I am at a job/wedding and my phone is put away, I can still see any notifications that come through on my phone which is great because some nights I will be without my phone for like 10 hours at a time. Lastly, I am able to track my workouts so much easier through the watch. It has a GPS in it as well so you don’t have to take your phone around with you which to me is amazing because I actually hate carrying my phone when I am trying to run. Music? It connects to Bluetooth headphones so you can also still listen to your music while you workout. It tracks all of your progress, how far you’ve gone, how long, how may calories you’ve burned, and I think it is great. If you have maybe thought about getting one and have been skeptical about it, I can assure you they are great and I definitely love mine.

Favorite Summer / Vacation Looks

Since Summer is coming to an end (sad face), I figured it would be appropriate to post about my summer vacation and favorite outfits. This year I got two vacations out of the summer which is a super cool thing. I just got back from California this week. I was visiting my Aunt and doing some tours with friends of hers that are event planners (which is what I want to do by the way). They basically let me shadow them and taught me about the business which was awesome except for the fact that I didn’t really get many cute outfits out of it since I was in work clothes most of the time. BUT, my other vacation was with my family, Gus, and I and we went on a cruise which was absolutely amazing. We went to the Bahamas, Mexico, and Honduras and it was the best we all had so much fun. Which by the way, if anyone is looking to cruise, we took Royal Caribbean and it was fabulous so just to keep in mind :). But getting back to the point, I wanna share some of my favorite outfits/pieces with y’all. Unfortunately, I didn’t get as many pictures of the outfits as I would have liked, but there will be links to them with descriptions instead.

This one was definitely one of my favorites. It is a matching set (which I love) because if you just want to wear the skirt, you can, or if you just want to wear the shirt, you can. It is super comfy but yet super cute and really versatile. Unfortunately since the season is coming to an end, the shirt is no longer in stock but they do have the skirt which is actually on sale right now.

https://us.oneill.com/collections/bottoms/products/su8415001-wwh-onyx

This outfit was also one of my favorites, definitely a more casual style. This skirt is Free People, and it’s super nice because you can really play with it and create many different styles with it. I liked this outfit though for vacation because it has a really beachy feel to it. The shirt is awesome too, I have made so many different outfits out of it, but it is definitely a summer piece and not really something you can get away with in the fall/spring. Both pieces are still in stock but going fast. The shirt is also on sale.

So, this skirt. I am actually obsessed with this skirt for a few different reasons. You will probably be seeing this particular style skirt a lot because I love it so much. Sometimes I don’t care for skirts because they are not always the most comfortable pieces of clothing. But I have to say, this is the most comfortable skirt you will ever put on I promise you. It is great, so cute, and so versatile. You can literally wear this with a cute dressy shirt and go out to dinner or you can put it with a t-shirt to go run errands. The brand is Free People and it is always in stock because it is so popular LOL. Certain colors may vary season to season but basic colors are usually always in stock and you can find it pretty much anywhere that carries Free People.

I am obsessed with swimwear once summer comes around. I love buying bathing suits because I basically live in them in the summer time. This was one of my favorites this season. It is so cute and also great for any water activities (ladies you know what I’m talking about) because it is super secure and comfortable. The designer is Becca Swimwear and it is actually still in stock.

These are another one of my favorite summer sandals, and I felt like  they were super appropriate for the vacation that we were on. They are really different and that is part of the reason I liked them. I originally got them from Alicia D’Michelle, which is a boutique about 20 minutes away from me (south jersey ladies, it is at The Promenade in Marlton if you haven’t been there before) but since they don’t have a website where you can buy their clothes, I figured nobody would know where to get them. But after a bit of research apparently Walmart carries the exact same ones, so here they are.

That is all for this weeks post but next week you can expect two posts from me. One will be in the Lifestyle section of my blog page on Back to School Essentials and the other will be in the Fashion section of the blog page on Fall Clothing Essentials. See y’all next week 🙂
