 Welcome to a new week! I hope everybody enjoyed their weekend! I was kept busy with brunch dates on Saturday and Sunday, plus a lunch birthday celebration at my favourite place… so basically my whole weekend revolved around food, but that’s what weekends are for right?!

Today I have something a little bit different to talk about, obviously I have an outfit to share with you, but I also wanted to ask your opinion. What do you guys think of the new Instagram stories update? Are you a fan? After a few days of using it and getting used to it, I think I love it! As much as I enjoyed snapchat, I never really got into it as much as I could have. I love playing around and having fun with the filters, and my daughter and I love checking out the new ones, but I don’t really ‘do’ selfies and so the filters were basically for our own enjoyment.. and quite frankly, I really have NO INTEREST whatsoever to see other people with a cute dog filter over their face while they seductively stare at the camera. I mean, does anyone want to see that? Anyway, I guess that is one of the good things about instagram stories, there is no need for pouty-face, beautifying-filter selfies. The other reason I LOVE instagram stories is that is allows me to connect with fellow instagrammers more and to not only get a glimpse at their world behind the perfect pictures but to share a less polished look into my ‘real’ life, sort of like a behind-the-scenes for instagram! My favourite thing about instagram in general is forming relationships with other fashion lovers all over the world. This past year or so I have really really enjoyed finding and connecting with like minded people in the industry, some of whom I would now consider my friends! So I think that with the addition of stories it will allow those connections to continue to be formed and grow as well (because let’s face it, the algorithm changes have made instagram turn in to a slightly frustrating place at times!)
So over to you.. how do you guys feel about the new instagram stories update on  or instagram in general? Also, if you have any questions or anything you want to see on my instagram story then please let me know!! Oh and *ahem* don’t forget to check out my instagram page for a look at my day to day outfits too!

    I love Insta stories too! Like you, I never really got into snapchat and would always forget to go look at it and post on it to my 7 followers, haha so I was overjoyed when Instagram launched this.

    While some people have complained that now instagram is the perfect platform for people to annoy others with their self-indulgent selves, I love that I get to see the ‘real’ side of bloggers/influencers and people I follow – it brings them to life. If the real them doesn’t live up to people expectations, then they should just unfollow them rather than complain.

    First, I love the outfit! That blazer and shoes are kind of really awesome! As for instagram, I am an avid user of snapchat with my friends only, we do not keep a snapchat for our blog so I do have to agree with you that on instagram, I see a more professional platform with it and definetely a way to connect with fellow bloggers.
    xoxo, Simona and Indre

    I haven’t made the switch to the stories yet. I love weekends that revolve around food!! Your black lace cami and rips are perfect with the pink blazer.

    Never been into Snapchat so don’t really know if I do have a sincere opinion about the update, won’t probably use it but for all who both are on snapchat and IG it sounds really good! Xx

  5. Andreea Birsan August 9, 2016

    I’m actually really enjoying Instagram stories. I don’t know if I’ll have something to share on a regular basis because I don’t have the most interesting life Monday-Friday but I’ll definitely update when I can. And I agree that I love seeing other fellow bloggers stories too! Plus it’s so much easier than redirecting my attention to a separate app: Snap chat.. poor snap chat..

    xoxo Rina

  10. DEMELER August 9, 2016

    loving this look! and totally loving instastories–so fun to see personalities of people i wasn’t following on snapchat!

  11. Flora Swann August 9, 2016

    The problem is that Instagram pretty much copied Snapchat… But, I’m like you, I don’t really like Snapchat, I find it quite boring at times (especially when people put selfies with stupid filters, like you mentioned). What I don’t like though, is the fact that Instagram used to be made for better quality content, and I’m scared the stories will make it look more like Snapchat now. Anyway, I love your outfit, it’s super cute and the colors are great! Xoxo

  12. Miki August 9, 2016

    Great outfit. Lovely shoes. The pink blazer is lovely.
    I don’t really like selfies, so once the filters were taken away on instastories, I just used it for highlights of the day. I like it so far since I didn’t like having to constantly add people on snapchat, and the less apps, the better. I think they need to add some fun filters on instastories though. They made me laugh. More laughter, more fun, right? 🙂


  13. Sharon August 9, 2016

    At first, I felt it was a blatant copy of Snapchat and it was overwhelming to see all the stories as I follow more people via Instagram. But now I’ve gotten use to the navigation (swipe and click) and it’s easier to use the one platform. So I’m loving it now!

  14. Siffat Haider August 9, 2016

    I love that Instagram stories allows us to be real and show everyone who we really are! On another note, I’m obsessed with this outfit, you look so incredibly chic!

  15. Josipa August 9, 2016

    Perfect photos! Love this look!

  16. Emma Engmark August 9, 2016

    That pink blazer is so gorgeous!

  17. Raysa García August 9, 2016

    I’m kinda loving instastories. However, I feel bad for snapchat. 🙁
    As for your outfit, I love it! You always look Onpoint.
    Xx, Raysa

  18. Elisha August 9, 2016

    Absolutely loved the lace top and the pink blazer! + I don’t really like Instgaram Stories, Snapchat is my fav at all 🙂

    Greetings, Erik from

  21. Yuliya Oleynykova August 9, 2016

    to be honest, I still didn’t figure out how to use it. It doesn’t show on my feed for some strange reason :/
    But I’m annoyed to be honest. how many more social media is going to be developed to keep us busy? Seriously …

    Ankle jeans pair so well with lace ups! Adore this look! Well wishes


  23. Missy May August 9, 2016

    I have seen the ig stories, but I haven’t used it before. I joined snapchat few weeks ago. Not bad, but yeah it can be annoying with the filters. Lol! Instagram is my main muse, definitely a great networking platform for me too.
    You look very classy! I love the ensemble. 🙂

  24. Joy August 9, 2016

    First off: Babe you look fierce, I LOVE this outfit!

    Second: Instagram stories just randomly stopped working for me and I am crushed!!! I loved it for the hour or so I was able to use it!

    Joy xx.

  25. danielle August 9, 2016

    my instagram hasn’t even updated to show stories yet, i feel left out haha! really love this look, the pink jacket is so cute!

  26. Christine Kong August 10, 2016

    I am obsessed with this entire outfit head to toe! Love the mix of lace and blazer and those shoes! As for the Instagram Stories, I literally just got it yesterday and I think I will totally use it. I tried Snap a few times like you said, and it was fun to toy around with, but I much prefer having everything on one app. Stories can use a few cool filters, but I like having it all in one screen the most. Can’t wait to catch up with you and everyone else’s stories soon! xoxo, Christine

  27. I’m loving this pink blazer – and I actually really love that you wore a bright lip with this outfit. It totally works!

    Love, Lindsey

  28. Dora Toubanaki August 10, 2016

  29. Incredible outfit! You look so stunning. Lovely photos (・ω・)

  33. Kasie Chelanne August 10, 2016

    I am enjoying Instagram stories as well! I haven’t spent enough time really building up my Snapchat following so it’s nice to have built in followers on Instagram Stories. I agree with you though…the puppy dog filters are unnecessary!

  34. Jenelle August 10, 2016

    All for Insta stories and the death of that god damned dog filter. You know what I think it looks like they are licking.

  35. taislany August 10, 2016
