A good day for joggers

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.”

Hold on.

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.

Do you have a less cynical opinion of the upcoming change?  Tell me your thoughts below, I’d love to know!  That’s it for today folks, don’t forget to enter the CASEAPP Giveaway for a free phone/laptop case or skin!

    Cute! I like the off the shoulder top too 🙂

  • Does anyone know if someone invented a new instagram already? 🙂 I’m not a fan of this change either.

    Loving this outfit! Looks so comfy and chic, and I love the jewelry 🙂 As for the IG change, I’m just as skeptical as you are, but I’m hoping they’ll give you the option to switch between non-chronological and the chronological “modes” — which I think would be a good compromise?

  • Girllll, I’m all about sweatpants that are deemed fashionable. You’re rocking this look!

    Also, can I just take a moment to Hi-5 you for completely nailing my exact opinion on Instagram’s new algorithm? I hate that they’ve changed it, and I don’t know one person who doesn’t. I’ve signed that many online petitions, but I doubt it’s going to make a difference. Sigh.

    P.S. I don’t know why I wasn’t before, but I’ve given your blog a sneaky follow via Bloglovin’. 😉

  • Yes, fashionable sweatpants! I love it – though I’ve yet to wear mine without heels – I feel too insecure to wear them with flats or a sneaker.

    Chic on the Cheap

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE those joggers. Super cute go to for a outfit you can wear lounging around home or running errands!

  • There’s nothing better than joggers that are well loved; they become just much more comfortable! 😉

  • Thanks Elizabeth! Yea my FB feed is such a mess I just don’t even bother… I really hope they leave it alone!

  • I’m pretty sure that’s where they’re headed! Thanks for the outfit love ;)!

  • Love those joggers and your $25 slip ons! It is embarassing how much I’ve abused my joggers. Since mine has a more ‘formal’ slacks like fabric, I have it with me for every business trip since 2014, wore them to work, on flights and even for a casual weekend jog since they are joggers right ahhaha 🙂

  • I actually don’t own a pair of joggers and I think you just convinced me that I need a pair this spring! I really love all ur jewelry with this look and how simple, yet chic this outfit is! I didn’t use FB for the longest time either because I was also frustrated by all the changes being made. I prefer instagram, but now with all the possible changes on the way I don’t know if I will be able to say that anymore!!

  • You look gorgeous, love the joggers. As for the new IG update, I couldn’t agree more. I’m afraid it’s going to mimic FB in the near future, making you pay to have your photo visible to all of your followers.

    Oh gosh, the new instagram update sounds horrible. How can they deem what is the best for us? It just doesn’t make any sense. x

  • i keep seeing joggers, i’ll have to go buy some soon! they look so comfortable =o)

    and I didn’t know that Instagram was going that, what a shame Facebook was ruined with the similar change and I use the site less for sure.

  • Oh agree so much about this non-chronological feed trend for social medias, they all seem to be going that way and it’s obnoxious. Kind of defeats the purpose of Instagram being called Instagram. Thanks for the outfit love <3

  • I hate the fact FB, Twitter and now IG are sort of playing God with our feed, I want to see whatever I want and not what they deem are the best for me. Seriously, FU. Anyhoot, on to the outfit, I love joggers because they are so comfortable but they don’t look half as good on me as they look on you! And that Nine West loafers for $25?! You lucky girl, that’s a bargain!

  • Oh Nilu you’re much too kind! Thank you so much for your compliments, I definitely don’t feel worthy! I think being a designer for my day job helps a bit with my blog’s aesthetic when I set out to configure it’s looks, and it also helps with my personal fashion aesthetics as well! I hope I can continue to live up to your praises <3

  • Thanks Maireem! Yes same here, not a fan 🙁

  • Haha don’t panic just yet! They said they’ll be implementing this system slowly taking into account feedback from users. At least that’s what they say….I’m hoping with enough backlash they’ll change their minds! Thanks for the outfit love 😉

  • Right? I hope IG doesn’t change! Thanks for the outfit love babe!

  • They’re certainly challenging, and before I found this pair, all others looked odd on me too. I think it really depends on where they waistband hits on your hip and how much volume it has built in!

  • Thanks Amy! Ugh same here, I get so made just thinking about it!

  • Aw Thanks Dora! And yea they’re going to be implementing it slowly but I really wish they wouldn’t!

  • Haha I’m on board! Thanks Kathy!

  • Thanks Christina! Yea I really wish they don’t go changing what’s not broken!

  • You make joggers look incredibly chic! And omgosh I just learned about the Instagram algothrim change and I am seriously freaked out!!! What is this going to mean for us bloggers. And if I were not a blogger user, I would not want to see just top Instagram users’ photos! Like what about my friends who I care about?? Ahhh
