White Windowpane

White Windowpane Top

While ya’ll know I’ve been doing some fall shopping and fall wishing, I couldn’t resist snagging this black and white windowpane button down from Old Navy as well. It’s so easily worn now, with cutoffs and all white but will be perfect later with black skinnies and a black hat! Win-win! And if you’re looking for some great summer steals a lot of items in this post are crazy cheap right now! These sunglasses are marked down with an additional 50% off making them less than $10. (These are also the same price and I love them as well!) And these flats are marked down with an additional 25% off. The cutoffs are still around $75 but that’s still a great price for designer denim shorts. The top is a newer arrival at Old Navy but it’s even marked down to $21 and ON is offering 25% off your entire order of $75 or more so now’s a great time to stock up! I’d also suggest these pants and this dress from Tuesday’s post. #oldnavylove

I’m quite certain that a lot of you are probably very familiar with LIKEtoKNOW.it and use it on a regular basis but to my surprise I’ve actually gotten an increased amount of questions about it lately. Not to mention I have heard over and over again how much some people love it. So I wanted to make sure to share the love over here as well! I’ve even started using it a lot more regularly lately so even more reason to dedicate a post to it. It really is instagram shopping perfected after all!

What is it? LIKEtoKNOW.it actually makes instagram posts shop-able. If you head over to liketoknow.it and sign up with your email address all you have to do is like a blogger’s photo on instagram and you’ll automatically receive an email with product details in an easy to shop format! It makes things super easy for us bloggers to get our daily content straight to your inbox! Typically I’ll instagram a photo from each of my blog posts through LIKEtoKNOW.it so if you’re like me and don’t quite have time to head directly to the blog to shop the look, you can like the photo and check out the email a little later.  You can also browse the desktop version if you think you may have missed a post along the way. You can see all my LIKEtoKNOW.it posts at liketoknow.it/pearlsandtwirls. It really does make shopping your favorite blogger’s looks super easy!

{This is a little preview of what it looks like and those product images at the bottom are clickable and will take you directly to the websites where they can be shopped!}

Another question I typically get is why aren’t some things linked through LIKEtoKNOW.it and why don’t we link My Kind of Lovely through LIKEtoKNOW.it? Well the easy answer is not every retailer participates in affiliate programs. Just because someone has a website does not mean that they’re able to be linked. This also includes My Kind of Lovely. We hope one day MKL will be linkable but we’re not quite there yet! So in the example above, my top & shorts are actually My Kind of Lovely and aren’t able to be linked, but everything else is so that’s what you can shop below. I try to always tag the brands that aren’t able to be linked just as a heads up to what’s coming to your inbox.

Sounds pretty great huh? Easy & accessible outfit shopping! What more could you want out of instagram?!

And just as an FYI, This also relates to my Blogging as a Business post because yes, if you’re wondering, we do make money off this. If you receive one of my LIKEtoKNOW.it emails, click through and purchase something I’ve linked I’ll make a small commission from it. This is just another way us bloggers make it out here! So if you really do love something I’ve linked on the blog or through LIKEtoKNOW.it make sure to click through my link when ordering! As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on LIKEtoKNOW.it. Love it? Hate it? Let me know!

All The Neutrals

Old Navy Fall Dress

Another day another good Old Navy find! These cocoon dresses are so easy and comfortable I think I may need both patterns (and they’re 25% off today with code DEAL)! This one happens to be so easy for fall transitioning and I love that it combines brown, black and navy so basically you can choose one of those and run with it for the rest of the outfit. I see this being styled lots of different ways but for now my go-to black mules and a black clutch was the way to go. And don’t you worry, I’ll definitely be styling this up with a hat in the near future!

Bloggers Who Budget: Fall Trends

BWB Fall Trends-9

I hope everyone is just excited about transitioning into fall as I am because I don’t see the fall trends or fall transition talk stopping any time soon! Since ya’ll know I love to be different I’m specifically loving that pastels and lighter colors have become a thing for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I do still love the rich jewel tones but since I’m definitely a pastel girl I love wearing my pastels all year long! So today I’m transitioning this summer top into fall with destructed denim, booties and some light fall pastels. I’m obsessed with these new fall color tassels from My Kind of Lovely and I love how they’re still lighter colors with a fall hue to them. They surprisingly go with everything and will definitely be a fall staple! (These are $30 each and aren’t online but email us at shop@mykindoflovely.com to order!) And don’t forget to click through and check out all the BWB ladies’ fall trend outfits!

Fall Trends with My Kind of Lovely

This morning I’m back on the news for my monthly segment and I’m especially excited to chat about fall trends today! (Watch the segment here!) All our new arrivals at My Kind of Lovely are sooo good and have all of us excited for fall so I just wanted to share a few of those favorites today. New arrivals don’t go up on the site until Wednesday’s usually but I’ve added all these just for you guys, so get to shopping!

Faux Leather

Ya’ll know I love my faux leather everything and this dress is no exception! Brown leather feels a little more fall to me so I’m loving this one with brown booties for early fall and then layered with a black turtleneck and tights for winter!

Lady in Leather – $65

Cargo Jackets

Cargo jackets have been around for a while but they’re not going anywhere any time soon!  They’re the perfect fall jacket! I personally love them in olive but if you’ve already got one of those try out some new colors!

Cargo Cutie – $54


Fringe is everywhere and on everything these days! I’m specifically loving fringed purses and fringe booties and these two are no exception! I love the dramatic long fringe on the clutch and fun cut outs on the booties!

Never Let Go Clutch – $60 & Fringe Booties – $70 (limited sizing available – email for more info at shop@mykindoflovely.com!)

Oversized Sweaters

Who doesn’t love cozying up in an oversized sweater? The bigger the better I say! Try out a longer length or one with a collar and pockets like this one!

Cardi For the Party – $45

Flowy, Boho Style Tops

Any kind of cute flowy top is a quick seller at My Kind of Lovely and I’m totally loving all the fun fall colors! We tend to gravitate towards any and all colors of orange as Tennessee fans so this one can double for a game day top as well!
