Wouldn’t you agree?
Take the sweatpants silo, add a elastic band to the ankles and now you have socially acceptable outdoor sweatpants in all kinds of fabrications. What fun!
The tricky part of dressing joggers for me aka Ms LongTorso, is the volume it ads to my hips; it’s my problem area and accentuates my short longs in all the wrong ways. The length of top becomes incredibly important and a shorter or crop top does the trick. This ALLSAINTS sweater that’s artfully constructed hits at the right place and I love the lush button down back along with the edgy silhouette it gives to the upper body.
My favorite part of this outfit? These Nine West slip ons were $25, and they’re so comfortable it’s like walking on fluffy clouds.
Opinion on Instagram’s new algorithm
I want to take a second and discuss Instagram’s recent announcement on the upcoming change of how we see our feed – and how disgusted I am with the this concept. Long story short they’re going the way of Facebook, where your timeline will no longer be chronological but what Instagram’s new coding/algorithm deems interesting for you. First and foremost, this is why I pretty much all but stopped using Facebook. My current timeline is a hot mess, filled with a slew of random viral links with click bait titles that people are sharing and clicking ‘Like’ on. In addition, I’m constantly seeing the same post hovering near the top of the timeline time and time again. Clicking the “see fewer posts like this” does nothing, it’s like playing whack a mole.
In an interview reported by the NY Times, co-founder and chief executive of Instagram Kevin Systrom stated that “On average, people miss about 70 percent of the posts in their Instagram feed” and that “this is about is making sure that the 30 percent you see is the best 30 percent possible.”
If Instagram is truly out to help users “see the best 30%,” shouldn’t they be working on tools that allow users to decided what they want that 30% to be? Sorry Kevin, I’m just not buying your BS. I mean, Instagram’s own announcement said it best – “your feed will soon be ordered to show the moments we believe you will care about the most.” This is about future ad revenue and the internet pretty much immediately saw through it, despite the spin they’re putting on. We’ll soon have a machine dictating our interests. Wonderful.
