I love how fresh this blue top looks with white jeans.  It’s a prefect transition into spring.  I’m currently obsessing over white jeans!  I got this jean jacket 2 years ago, and it is still a piece I wear often.  It is definitely a must in my wardrobe.  In the spring and summer it is what I’m always grabbing for.

Today my daughter, Sofia, and I are off to Florida!  It’s just a girls trip to go visit family.  I have been dreaming of warm weather and sunshine for weeks now.  Hopefully we have warm enough weather to go to the beach or lay out by the pool.  Everyone who lives in cold weather knows that February can be a month where we start to feel a little crazy from all the cold and snow.  A little escape is just what the doctor ordered!

Jacket: BlankNYC / Tee: similar here, here / Jeans: Joe’s Jeans / Shoes: Kate Spade (similar style under $100) / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff / Sunglasses: similar here / Earrings: House of Harlow

Black and white is one of the oldest and most classic color combination ever, and yet it is still always beautiful.  Wearing a destroyed white denim gives this classic color combo a modern, fresh look.  This pair fits perfect and they are so comfortable.  These jeans will be on repeat all spring and summer.  And hello to this jacket!  I got this exact style in the fall in a taupe color and loved it so much!  I am so excited to now have it in black.

Thank you Nordstrom for collaborating with me on this post

What is LIKEtoKNOW IT?

As you are scrolling down your Instagram feed, how often do you think “where did she get that”?  LIKEtoKNOW IT has come up with a solution so you don’t have to ask that any more.  If you follow me on Instagram you have probably seen me talk about LIKEtoKNOW IT.  But I’m sure you still have a lot of questions about it.  Today I’m giving you the 411 on LIKEtoKNOW IT and how it is life changing!

What is LIKEtoKNOW IT?  Basically it’s an app that allows me to link product details to a photo I post.  Then when a person who is signed up for LIKEtoKNOW IT “likes” my photo, all of those product details are emailed to you.  The email is very simple and very easy to shop from.  It almost makes shopping too easy!

There are times that I am wearing an item that is no longer available, older or sold out.  In those cases I will link a similar item that will give you that same look.  This way you can take the moment to grieve the item that will never be available again and quickly move on to it’s twin sister.

How do you know what photos are linked with LIKEtoKNOW IT?  You will see my #liketkit and a weird jumble of letters and numbers in my post description.  That sequence of letters and numbers is what tells LIKEtoKNOW IT what photo you have liked so you get emailed the correct information.

I personally have been using LIKEtoKNOW IT for at least 9 months.  I find it so easy to use!  When I see a picture of someone’s outfit of the day that I completely love, I like their photo and have all the details emailed to me.  So simple and saves time.

If you have any more questions let me know and I’ll help you out :)  The photos in this post are all photos I have posted to Instagram using LIKEtoKNOW IT.  You can shop them here.
