With my new blog rebrand (The Alice Diary, formerly wonderlostxx), I am starting a new series called Instagram Outfits of the Week. Like most bloggers, I use #ootd apps, such as LikeItToKnow.It and ShopStyleCollective. But I know not all of you use these apps and I wanted to help you out by linking all weekly featured Instagram items in a blog post. Plus, shopping on a computer versus a phone is way easier, am I right or am I right?
Every week, I will be posting my outfits on a new blog post along with additional photos not seen on Instagram of the same outfits. All outfit details will be linked and a small description of my thoughts on the pieces.
The TopShop top and Mango bag is currently sold out, but I have linked some alternatives below. There is an even sturdier version of this bag on Mango currently. You won't have to deal with "sharper" items, like boxes and bananas, sticking out.
I highly highly recommend Birkenstock shoes! I had a black leather double strapped pair before that I wore for 4+ years. It was the only shoe I wore when I travelled through Europe for 5 weeks and twice in Asia for 3 weeks. I knew I had to get more when I stumbled upon these suede double strapped soft bed Birkenstock sandals at the REI garage sale (also HIGHLY recommend going). They were only $60 (originally $135). Plus with the REI credit card, there was an additional 5% off ($3 off!). I also scored a nice backpacking backpack not pictured for $60 (originally $220). Note: blog post on the REI garage sale coming soon once I attend more of them.
I love a good linen blazer for the summer because it instantly makes an outfit look chic. The high neckline top paired with a blazer makes this look perfect for both office wear and casual wear.
I wore a light and breezy jumpsuit with a denim jacket (because SF is always cold) for my photoshoot with the talented @dfvbio.
You all seem to love this outfit - I honestly wear t-shirts and jeans pretty much everyday and did not post as much because I thought it would be repetitive. Now that I know you all love it, I'll post more of my less "dressy" looks! The t-shirt was an old Madewell sale item, but I linked other Madewell alternatives below. Their basics qualities are always well-made and last for a long time.
Hope you enjoyed reading the first Instagram weekly recap on The Alice Diary. If you subscribe to my newsletter, I will also send out weekly updates on my Instagram outfits so you can view them from your email. Subscription box available on the home page.
