Three Ways to Style a Sweater

Happy Wednesday friends!  We are almost to the weekend!  I think the majority of us are suffering from the winter blues and freezing cold temps, so I thought I would try to cheer you up by sharing three different ways to style a sweater.  I know I’m eager for spring temps to arrive, and I’m sure you are too!  Until then, here are three ways to style sweaters this winter!

Try a half tuck

Tucking a sweater might not be something that has occurred to you before, but it’s a great way to pull your outfit together.  You don’t tuck the entire sweater in, just the front portion as I’ve demonstrated below.  This style works with virtually any style, so you likely have something in your closet already in which you can try.

Tie the sweater in a knot

Sweaters over dresses can sometimes appear too bulky, but if you simply tie it in a little knot you can easily give your outfit more shape.  This style works well with jeans too!

Over a dress

You know that spring-y denim dress you have hanging in your closet that you’re longing to wear again?  Well you can!  Throw a sweater on over it and add some tights and boots for a super cute look!

How to use LiketoKnow.it

Hi friends!  I wanted to take a moment and talk to you about LikeToKnow.it and the LiketoKnow.it app that you have no doubt heard me talk about recently via Instagram. I have had several people mention that they think LTK.it is confusing so they don’t use it.  I thought it was time to give you a quick tutorial on what the program is, as well as how to use the app.

Why should I sign up for LikeToKnow.it?

Let’s face it, we all spend a lot of time on our phones and in particular, Instagram.  You likely see or follow style bloggers like myself and often want to know where that item is from so you can possibly purchase for yourself.

Signing up is super easy, follow this link https://www.liketoknow.it/ and click on the Sign up button in the top right when you arrive (see screen shot below).  The sign up process takes just a few minutes and all you need to provide is your email and your name.

Signing up for LiketoKnow.it

Once you’ve signed up, why not give it a test drive?  Visit my Instagram profile www.instagram.com/emmyloustyles and click the like button on a few of my pictures.  Within a few minutes you can check your email inbox and you will have an email from LiketoKnow.it that contains the image of mine that you liked with each item in the picture linked for you to easily shop right from that email.

How do I download and use the LiketoKnow.it app?

If you want to take things a step further, download the LiketoKnow.it app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store.  The screen shot below shows you what the app looks like in the store so you can make sure you’re downloading the correct one:

Downloading LTK.it App

One of the coolest features of the LTK.it app is that it allows you to take a screenshot of my IG picture (or any other bloggers picture that is a part of the LTK.it program) and as long as you have your push notifications turned on for the LTK.it app, you will receive that notification within seconds.  You can then shop directly from that notification! The screen shot below shows you what a push notification looks like:

If you click on that notification, the picture you liked will pull up and all of the items from the picture will be listed below for you to easily click on and shop.  The screen shot below is an example:

Any pictures that I post to IG that are a part of LTK.it will feature a little black or white heart icon in the bottom right of the photo as depicted below:

All of my posts on IG will always remind you of the various ways you can shop my feed.  If LTK.it is not something you plan to use, you can easily shop my IG feed by clicking the link from my IG profile as shown below.  This will take you to the shopping page on my site where these items will be and you can easily shop from that page.

November Style Recap

Happy 3rd of December!  No idea how we are already in December, yet here we are!  This is a crazy, busy month for us (as I’m sure it is for all of you too).  I wanted to pop in quickly and share a style recap of my top 5 IG looks for the month of November in case you need some quick style inspiration.  This is based on the top posts with the most likes in November.  🙂  So without further adieu, here you go!

This is the softest, coziest sweatshirt.  You can wear it with leggings or jeans, and it’s from our favorite retailer.

My favorite jeans at the moment are from Madewell (as I’m sure you know by now b/c I share on repeat).  They are a versatile color and I love the 5 button fly.

This Zella jacket is another weekend fave of mine.  It’s cozy and casual (and warm too).

Hello cute tall black boots.  I’m convinced I can’t do the OTK trend so if you feel the same way, give these a try.  They are tall without being TOO tall.

Dr. Scholl’s Shoes are amazing.  If you haven’t experienced this brand, you need to. They are comfy and on trend!

Clad and Cloth Puns N’ Roses Skirt

A dear friend of mine recently told me about Clad and Cloth and it’s amazing so I think you should know about it too!  It’s an online only retailer where everything in their shop is handpicked just for you.  They have fewer pieces versus tons and tons of pages of product.  And since there are fewer pieces, you know they are going to be top notch items that you can’t live without.  Here is a little snippet from the About section on their site:  “CLAD & CLOTH is meant to inspire women to be clothed in confidence and independence.  A “clad & cloth” girl is tastefully dressed, modest, bold, and unique. She is your best self.”

They offer free shipping and free returns so you can shop without worry.  If an item is sold out, you can easily enter your email to be notified when it’s back in stock.  Here is one of my purchases from Clad and Cloth…this dusty rose velvet midi skirt is gorgeous with a fitted top tucked in.  I think I may wear this for Christmas Eve with some dressier pumps.  But as you can see, you can throw on a pair of patterned booties with it too!  It’s so versatile!

Go to their site and see for yourself!

Layering with lace

Choo choo!  I’m jumping on the bralette bandwagon!  I’ll be honest, I wasn’t so sure how I felt about bralettes, but then loose fitting, slightly off the shoulder sweaters have started to become a thing and what else are you supposed to wear under those?  Enter the Signature Lace Deep V Bralette!  Another blogger (@madstylestudio) posted these bralettes on her IG feed recently and it was hook, line, sinker when she said what the price was.  UMMMM $10 ladies, and perhaps the best part of all?  They have padding which means you feel like you have a little more support than your average bralette!  I have only ordered the black one (so far), but it comes in a ton of other colors too.  I ordered a small, but I could stand to size up as the band doesn’t have a ton of give to it. I have provided the link to these on Amazon (hello Prime free shipping) so go ahead and throw one in on your next diaper purchase ladies! 🙂
