Hello party people! So I feel totally out of my element right now posting on an off day at an off time. I will be out of town for the weekend (yay!). If you haven’t already heard, Sephora is have a huge sale for their beauty insiders starting tomorrow and I just had to share my top pics. I recently did a beauty post sharing my spring favorites, and now a lot of these items can be purchased on sale! What kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share this news with you? Here are my top picks from the Sephora Beauty Sale
Hi friends! As some of you may already know, there have been some recent changes to the way third party apps interact with Instagram. You’re probably wondering why I’m telling you this in a blog post. Well LiketoKnow.it, the service that I use to allow you to shop my Instagram was impacted by this change. If you were someone who used to shop my instagram posts via likes and email you’re no longer able to do so. There are still 2 other very easy ways to shop my looks which I will outline for you here.
How to Shop My Instagram Posts via the LiketoKnow.it App
First you will need to download the app onto your phone and create an account. Previously you were able to “like” my photos on Instagram and receive an email with the outfit details. Now if you want to shop my instagram posts you will need to screenshot the image. Once you have screenshot the image, open the app and my image will appear in your feed and you will simply click the photo and the individual products you want to shop.
If you don’t want to screenshot my photos there is another work around for you. You can also search my username (@mysocaledlife) within the app and follow me there. Easy peasy!
How to Shop My Instagram Posts via the blog
If you don’t want to sign up for anything else or add any more apps on your phone, I feel you. You can also very easily shop my Instagram looks here on the blog. Click the link in my profile on Instagram or Facebook and it will take you directly to a shop-able version of my Instagram feed. From there you will just click the image you wish to shop and you’ll be able to see each product individually.
Back when I worked in corporate insurance, I wore dresses almost daily. It wasn’t so much as to “look nice” as it was an effort to save time in the mornings. I used to have to be at my desk by 5:30 am (yes, you read that right!). This is also partially why I am not a morning person but that is neither here nor there. Dresses are an easy one piece option to throw on and go and I’m all about convenience. I don’t get as many opportunities to wear dresses so I don’t like to spend much on them. However when I came across this perfect tie waist tee shirt dress for under $45, I had to scoop it up.
I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m in love with the straw handbag trend this year. There are so many fun styles to try. I’m lucky enough to live in a place where we can visit the beach almost year round so I purchased quite a few this season. Circle and straw handbags have been a huge trend and I’ve been loving them all. Today I’ve rounded up my favorite styles at all price points and I’ve even found some great sales for you.

Happy Fri-yay! As you guys might already know, finding shorts isn’t easy for me. I’m short with a short torso and muscular legs so finding short overalls has been an exceptional challenge. As some of you may also know from this post and this post, I love overalls. I lived in them in junior high and high school and am so happy they’re trendy again now. Today I’m going to share with you all the pairs I tried as well as what worked and what didn’t.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post for you guys. I’ve picked up a few products that I absolutely love over the past few months so I just had to share them with you. There are also a few other things that I’ve been using for years that I wanted to share as well.
