Cropped Denim, Are You In?

Jazmin Crop Straight Leg Jeans CITIZENS OF HUMANITY I’ve received more compliments on these jeans than any other jeans I’ve ever worn. To be honest, it baffles me. You see, I like tight jeans, and I haven’t seen a pair of cropped jeans that don’t give me flashbacks to a pair of cropped capri pants I wore the tar out of not too long ago. Ha! But, I like to follow trends, so during a particularly weak moment after I had been wearing a pair of high waisted, tight, skinny jeans all day and felt sick to my stomach (ok, maybe that’s a little too tight -ha!), I bought these jeans. I wore them out, and low and behold, everyone was asking me where I bought my jeans!

I have come to realize that a cropped, looser fitting jean is a nice piece to have in your jean arsenal. They’re on trend and they’re comfy, but for me, more than anything, they can give my “cutesy” outfit the perfect amount of edge. You know how it’s on trend to mix up your styles? Like, instead of just wearing an all preppy outfit, it’s “cool” to combine preppy with edgy or classic with distressed. Well, these jeans do just that for my closet. For example…

A few styling notes: These jeans came with a cuff sewn at a certain place. I wanted to have the flexibility to cuff them the way I wanted to, just like in the picture above. Also, I went down one size and I wish I had gone down two sizes. I said I liked tight -ha!

What the heck? Just when I think I’ve got this tech stuff down, something new appears! One of my personal goals for 2017 is to embrace change. Yes, I can be a big ole stick in the mud. Want to be my friend? Ha! Anyway, I am learning that embracing change is part of life in general, but it’s also a part of technology. Change is inevitable, so I might as well jump on board- specifically with technology. Plus, I’m a blogger, so I’m suppose to be up on technology, right? Let’s face it, usually once I try a new technology, I end up loving it! Hello, iPhone and Instacart!

Alright, so let’s talk about and the new app.

As you may or may not know, is a software that works with Instagram to allow you to shop the products in a photo. If you “like” a certain photo of a blogger, you will get an email (timing at your preference) with the outfit links from that image. This is what the e-mail looks like with the links to purchase at the bottom.

To receive these emails, you have to sign up through If you’re not already signed up, you can sign up here.

I have people tell me all the time that they are not receiving the emails from their likes. I have determined the most likely reason is in your settings. Make sure your email subscriptions settings are checked to your preferences.

And just when I thought I understood, they added an AMAZING new APP this week -ha! What I love about the new app is that you can shop the picture in an instant! You don’t have to wait for an email!

I had to sit down and learn the new app myself, so I thought I would share my findings with you all.

With the new app,  all you have to do is screenshot the picture to shop it! Screenshot a social media post (on Instagram, Pinterest, and SnapChat), and shopping links instantly appearing in your app’s feed. GENIUS!! You can download the app by going here.

Next, you will need to go into your app settings and make sure “Screenshot Matches” is turned on. This allows you to see the photo and the products in the app’s feed.


VOILA! Now anytime you want to shop a picture on any of your social media platforms, just screenshot the picture, open your app, and shop!

I hope this was helpful. I know many of you use and LOVE, and I would love to hear your feedback on the new app!
