Happy Friday!!!  It’s been the busiest work week. I am so ready for this weekend.  Last week, a few blogger pals and I headed to the local roller skating rink for a fun girls’ night out.  It was so much fun. By the end of the night, we all had our skating moves down.

A local photographer joined us to snap some pics of our night out, #bloggerlife 🙂  Ya’ll, outfit photos in roller skates is no joke.  The photographer was super awesome at helping me not look like I was about to fall. ha!

We sort of themed the night out 70s style, and I went with a jewel toned bodysuit, skinny jeans, and my double hoop earrings.  Yes, I am officially in love with bodysuits.  This one has super drape front top.  I think it would be super cute with a long black lace bandeau underneath it. The drape will expose whatever you have on under it.   I ended up just pinning it because I didn’t have anything I really liked that would look cute showing.  If you want to check out the other girls’ outfits, I shared a group pic at the end of the post.

I hope you have a fabulous first weekend of summer!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Ladies!  Sometimes the simplest outfit filled with closet staples can turn into the chicest casual outfit.  All of these pieces live on major repeat in my closet, not just in summer but throughout the year.  A fan girl of the all black outfit for any season, I love pairing it with the brown wedges and crossbody bag to create a fun, casual summer outfit.

I’m someone who is always cold, so a denim jacket is a must for me in Summer.  I tend to get cold indoors when everyone is blasting the A/C.    It’s also a fun addition to add a little color to an all black look.  You can also tie the jacket around your waist to break up the two black pieces.  My denim jacket is from H&M, but the one I linked I own in white and love!

If you are looking for a good quality tank top for summer, I love these!!  I’ve posted this olive one on the blog before in this post.  I also own it in white, and I love that it is not see-through!  I own two in black because I wear them so much.  These tanks will be great in fall and spring to wear in a layered look under cardigans and jackets.

I hope your week is going well! Thanks for stopping by!

Instagram Roundup – Summer Outfit Ideas

Instagram Roundup @karenkocich | Summer Outfit Ideas | Blogger Style | Houston Fashion Blogger Lady in Violet

Happy Friday!! Who is ready for the weekend?!?! It’s been a pretty busy week, so I am definitely ready.  Our forecast is a full weekend of rain, so I’m planning to chill indoors, watch Netflix, and catch up on a few blog and home tasks.

Since the official start of Summer is almost here, I wanted to share a few summer outfit ideas from things I have worn recently.  All of these outfits were originally posted to Instagram.  So if you want to see more outfit of the day inspiration, be sure to follow me over there at @karenkocich.  The last pic is from Instastories.  I have been playing with posting a few #ootd snaps in there too. Mostly for those days when I don’t have someone to snap a pic for me.

Also for those of you that used to use the LiketoKnow.it service to shop your favorite Instagram posts, you may have  noticed a few months ago the email portion of the service stopped working.  This was due to changes Facebook and Instagram made to 3rd Party Apps.  I was bummed because I loved the ease of liking photos and going through the email every night.

If you still want to be able to receive outfit details from my Instagram posts, you still can just using a few different methods.  One – Head to my Shop Instagram page.  I have a direct link in my Instagram bio and you can find it here at the top of the page under SHOP, the click Shop Instagram.  Click on the picture you are interested in, and all the pieces of my outfit will pop up.  You can also find info from things posted to Instastories here too.

The second option is to use the LiketoKnow.it app.  You can find me under my Instagram handle KARENKOCICH.  If you screenshot photos, they will load the info in the app for you.  Personally, I rarely use this part of the service.  I usually save the photos in IG that I want info on and then search for them in the app later.  In the app, I also follow a few of my favorite bloggers too.  I love this feature because they have no algorithm so I see all the posts in real time.  One of their newest features is to wish list your items, so you can come back to them later.  I have been using that feature quite a bit lately.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and drop your Instagram handle in the comments.  I always love finding new fashion inspiration to follow!

Hello Hello!! How was your weekend?  We had our family reunion, so tons of family time for me this weekend.   During the Memorial Weekend sales, I hit up Loft for some new work clothes.  I wanted a few lightweight pieces that could work in a variety of outfits for the office.

This pink pocket skirt was an instant eye catcher in the store.  The color is so perfect for both spring and summer, and the pockets are the perfect added touch.  Pink can be such a versatile color.  It works well with neutrals like black, white, and ivory, but it also mixes well with other colors like yellow, blues, and red.  I paired this skirt with a navy striped top and denim jacket last week for work.

This sleeveless tie neck top is so perfect for both the office and weekends.  It’s a black and white design, but looks gray from a distant.  I have paired it with jeans and gray slacks.  You can also leave the tie neck portion open for a cute v-neck look.

I personally love these two pieces paired together for a chic and effortless work look. Gray and pink is always a favorite color combo of mine.

I hope ya’ll have a great week ahead and thanks for stopping by!
