A Hint of Sequins

Hey friends! Happy Thursday! Did y'all miss me yesterday (just lie to me and tell me you did). Sorry for the silence. Things have been a little crazy lately. 

But I am back today, and I am sporting some sequins!! Is there anything better? I really love this blouse. It is kind of the shirt version of these pants.  Just enough sparkle to add a little flair, not enough to be overwhelming or over the top (although I do like over the top)… And paired with this red midi + leopard heels, I would say this is a winner of an outfit. 

Shirt: J. Crew; Skirt: ASOS (similar); Shoes: Target (similar)

Can we talk about the weather a minute? Last week we were 30 degreed below average (60 degrees). This week we were 15 degrees above average. And today's high is suppose to be right at freezing.  You can all visit me in the hospital when I have pneumonia from all of the insane weather.

Have a great day!

Tuesday Shoesday Week #124

Happy Tuesday Shoesday friends! Hope you survived your Monday without too much damage!

Last Tuesday Shoesday was all about black shoes (you can revisit that post here), so I thought we would go the opposite this week and talk about COLOR.  Spring IS just around the corner, right??

Even when you are rocking all neutrals or a totally black palette, adding a bit of color with your shoes is such a great touch. It is a great way to add a little interest to an outfit, plus it really draws attention to an amazing pair of shoes!

Have a great day!

Knit Joggers

Happy Monday all! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was OK. We have had a lot of drama in my yoga teacher training and at the studio (ironic, I know), but I am hopeful that things will work out OK.

I have been wanting some awesome joggers for a while now, but I was having a hard time finding just the right one. I finally found these at Banana Republic (as you might remember here, I am obsessed with them right now). They are cute, cozy and so wonderful to wear! I never thought I would be saying this, but I love the whole athletic chic look now. Maybe it is because I feel like I am wearing my pjs when I wear these pants (and I like to wear my pjs a lot).

T-shirt: Old Navy (similar); Blazer: old (similar); Joggers: Banana Republic; Shoes: Ann Taylor (similar)
Have you been by The Blogger Collective recently? We posted our March challenge today, and I am really excited about it! Make sure you head over there to read all about it. And if you haven't applied, you need to. We have a lot going on, and you don't want to miss it!

Have a great Monday!

Happy Friday all!

Today I am excited to tell you about a really awesome fashion website + app! It is called Glamhive - think of it kind of like a shoppable Instagram.  And I am sharing a little Q&A I did with Stephanie, co-founder of Glamhive!

What is Glamhive?

We describe Glamhive as a ‘shoppable’ Instagram. People who post on Glamhive match product to their outfits so their followers can easily buy the things that they see + love.

What can you find?

Almost everything! We’ve partnered with 450 retailers and brands; and that list grows every day.

People can shop by look or use our search to find products from their favorite retailers and brands. Our search functionality works a lot like ShopStyle, the big difference is that people will get Glamhive Points for shopping with us. Points are like cash back. No other fashion site or app offers this.

What will users find on GH that they won’t find anywhere else?

Two big things: 

1. all photos are shoppable - companies similar to GH are a hit and miss on this. 
2. rewards - again, no other site or app offers rewards to the people who create content and people who shop. 

The truth is, anytime anyone hashtags a brand or gives a retailer a social media shout out, they are helping to drive awareness and sales for that brand. Companies fully understand the power consumer photos have - they are more effective than any advertising. We believe people, from the most popular bloggers to the everyday instagrammer, should get something for their brand advocacy. 

How did Glamhive start?

Glamhive is an idea that my co-founder Gisella Walter and I had. We were seeing all of the cool fashion content on Instagram and Pinterest that wasn’t easy, and at times impossible, to shop. We also saw that people were creating this content for free and we thought: it would be amazing if we could build a company where people could share photos, others could easily shop those photos and everyone could get rewarded. So we built it!

Join Glamhive:

Super simple. Just download our iOS app or sign up on our website Just need an email address, username and password.

Who is Glamhive for?

Everyone that likes fashion. From bloggers to people that just like to post great pics of their outfits to people that love to shop these looks.

Future of Glamhive:

Our plan is to be ‘the Instagram for fashion’. Our goal is to be the #1 style destination for people to share and shop style.  We are building new tools for bloggers and great features for shoppers. 

Want to check it out? You can sign up here. And follow me! I am nikkihodum.  
Thanks to Stephanie for taking the time to talk to me. I know you all are going to love it! 

Have a great weekend and don't spend all of your time on Glamhive!

Plaid + Sequins

Happy Thursday all! So close to another weekend. 

A few weeks ago I styled my new favorite pants with a turtleneck and faux fur vest (here). Today I am styling it with my favorite plaid shirt. 

I love the mix of the laid back plaid and the dressier sequins. I think they offer a nice balance to each other. 

Shirt: Banana Republic (similar); Pants: J. Crew; Shoes: Ann Taylor (similar)
