SHOP MY INSTAGRAM FEED

Hey, friends — I have some exciting news to share today...
You can now shop my Instagram feed!

I've added a tab at the top of this page (titled "Shop My Instagram") that you can 
click on to see my latest Instagram posts and shop them directly!



I'm sure many of you are familiar with LikeToKnow.It, a popular platform used
 in collaboration with Instagram to allow readers to shop style blogger's posts. 
I've never been a huge fan of LikeToKnow.It because it requires too many steps. 
First, the reader must sign up for an account with LikeToKnow.It. 
Second, the user must manually enter the hyperlink provided 
in the blogger's Instagram post into their browser. 

Next, the user may (or may not) be prompted to log into their account on the 
LikeToKnow.It website before accessing the blogger's "closet" (the travesty!
Alternatively, readers can "like" a blogger's Instagram post and then wait to receive 
an email with outfit details.

These steps are time consuming. As a millennial, I want my information quickly with the fewest barriers to consumption as possible. And personally, I hate having to manually enter a hyperlink into my phone's browser (#lazy). Between my work life, blog life and personal life, I receive more than enough emails — I really don't need any more! #RantOver

So, with that said, I'm happy to introduce an alternative for you that I feel good about.
Starting today, you can shop my Instagram posts via this tab on my blog 
or 
by visiting the direct link in my Instagram bio.

It's just that simple!

  7. I use LTK on my own feed but there are some features on it that I will admit that I don't love, so always great to have options!!

  10. I've been considering adding this feature to my own blog, but I do wonder – with Like to Know It and the concept of affiliate links so wide-spread and borderline exhaustive, do readers continue making purchases? Is there a way to track purchases that come only from the website as opposed to posts shared only on Insta? I'd be curious to see how much this concept adds to the overall LTKit strategy...

  13. What a great way to streamline the process! I like the concept of LiketoKnow.It But all the steps is such a turn off!
