Site Updates & How To Shop With Lauren

Happy Friday – I hope everyone had a great week!  Drew and I are currently at the beach and are having so much fun… the weather has been amazing!  There’s nothing quite as relaxing as lounging around on the beach with a good book (I’m currently reading Me Before You and it is so good!), listening to the waves crash & feeling the breeze blow through your hair.

Today’s post is a little bit different from my usual post.  Over the past several months, I’ve been working on giving Fashion Over Fatigue a face-lift and have been making several behind-the-scenes updates to the site to make things easier to navigate & easier for you to find what you are looking for.  One of my biggest goals with Fashion Over Fatigue to make it a centralized location & one-stop-shop where you can find outfit inspiration, beauty tips, sale alerts, and anything else fashion related!  Everyone lives such busy lives & I hope that FoF can help you (even in the smallest of ways!) to make shopping and coordinating outfits a little easier.  Today I thought I’d share some of those functionalities with you so that you can take full advantage of them!

Using The Homepage / Sidebar:

Below is the Fashion Over Fatigue homepage, which has a sliding photo bar that shows the most recent posts on the site!  You can either click right on the photo to go to the post, or scroll down underneath the photo bar to see each individual post.

Slide1

On the right side of the homepage and every page on the site, you’ll find the below widgets that will help you to navigate around FoF.  Towards the top of this right-hand section (under the picture of me) you can register your e-mail address to receive notifications when new posts go live on the site.  This is the best way to make sure that you never miss a post, sale alert, or new outfit inspiration!

Slide2

Below that you will find my most recent Instagram photos (more on that later!), and underneath that is a new section I’ve recently added called Currently Coveting, in which I’ve curated a selection of items that I am either loving at the moment or have on my wishlist!  I’ve been updating this section a couple of times a week so make sure to check it often!

Slide3

On the right sidebar towards the bottom, you can also navigate around the site via Categories.  Each one of my posts is filed under a specific category, so this is an easy place to help find what you are looking for.  You can also filter by the month of the post under Archives for if you are looking for an outfit or a post from a specific time of the year!

Slide4

You can easily navigate to the “Outfits” category (the most popular category on FoF!) either by using the dropdown listed above, or you can access it from the menu bar at the top of the page!

Slide5On the Outfits page, you’ll find a roundup of all of the most recent outfit posts to hit the site.

Slide6

Once you click into a post, towards the bottom of it (right below all of the photos), you’ll find text links to every single item I am wearing.  That way it is so easy to shop my outfit – all you have to do is click & it will take you directly to the site where you can buy the item!  There is also a Shop The Look widget below the text links where you can visually scroll through each item that I am wearing.  This widget works best on Internet Explorer (rather than Chrome) or via a mobile site.  It is a little finicky sometimes so you may have to turn off your ad blocker to view the content.

Slide10

Back at the top menu bar, you’ll find the link to Shop With Lauren:

Slide7

On the Shop With Lauren Page, you’ll find links to shop all of my Instagram photos through a platform called LikeToKnow.It.  When you register with LikeToKnow.It, follow me on Instagram (@fashionoverfatigue), and “like” one of my LTK-enabled photos, you’ll receive an email with links to all of the products I am wearing in that photo which makes it so easy to shop my looks or OOTD (Outfit Of The Day)!

Slide8  You can also shop all of my LTK Instagram photos via the Shop The Feed section on the Shop with Lauren page.  This is perfect for if you don’t have an Instagram or if you don’t want to register with LikeToKnow.It.  Simply click on the photo and it will take you to a page that looks like this in which you can shop the items:

LTKLastly, there are links to my favorite retailers & places I love to shop at the bottom of the Shop With Lauren page.  Simply scroll down to the “Where I Shop” section & click on the retailer you are looking for to be taken directly to their website.

Slide9

And there you have it – some of the new functionalities on the site!  I’m always looking to make Fashion Over Fatigue better and easier to use so if you have any suggestions or are having any troubles at all, please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for continuing to visit & support Fashion Over Fatigue!  Have a great weekend!
