Cute-as-can-be personal style blogger and Shop It To Me Trendsetter, Jaclyn Schler, has a keen eye for hot trends, fresh manicures and of course, shoes. Learn her time-saving tip to make mornings less stressful, how often she changes her nail color (wowza!) and where you can go to drool over her shoes daily!
Shop It To Me: How long have you been blogging, and what inspired you to start?
Jaclyn Schler: *August 2nd was the one-year anniversary of Sharing My Sole! I started my blog as a creative outlet to share my passion for fashion, styling and love for fabulous shoes.*
SITM: How do you normally build an outfit? Walk us through your process.
JS: *First I consider the event I am dressing for and I usually check the temperature too. I usually build my outfit from the bottom up, meaning I like to pick out my pants, skirt or dress first, shoes and then I choose a top and accessories. Since I have such a well-organized closet, building an outfit is usually a pretty painless process! *
SITM: *Name one fashion or beauty essential for each season that you can’t live without.*
JS: *Spring* – White Denim | Summer – Maxi Dresses | Fall – A boyfriend jacket | Winter – Knit tights and boots.
*SITM: *Okay, spill it. Any favorite online stores?
*JS: *Too many! Nordstrom (for the free shipping!), Asos, Kate Spade, and Piperlime.
SITM: *What determines when you buy full price items vs. when you buy sale items?*
JS: *It just depends on the quality, how much I love it and how often I think I will wear it or use it. If something is a bit of a splurge, but I can’t stop thinking about it, I will purchase it. However, if it’s something way above my price range that I can wait for, I will hold off for a deal!*
SITM: *Now that you can choose to see your Shop It To Me email organized by either retailer, by clothing type or by brand, what method do you prefer/why do you shop that way?*
*JS: *I prefer to see my emails organized by clothing type. If I am looking for something particular, I can go straight for that category. It’s also nice to browse by category and see all the lovely shoes in one place. :)
*SITM: *We’re all about time-saving here at Shop It To Me. Can you share a time-saving trick that’s part of your daily routine?
*JS: *I always pick out my outfit the night before in order to save time in the morning. I lay everything out in my closet so that I can get ready and dressed quickly, while still looking sharp.**
SITM: *Any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions or a fashion faux pas you want to share?*
JS: *Due to a previous embarrassing stain on my shirt, I now keep a scarf in my desk drawer at all times just in case I need to cover up a spot!*
SITM: *Tell us something unique to you — after all, it’s what makes you YOU!*
JS: *I have an affinity for well-manicured nails and I usually paint them 2 or 3 times a week! One little chip will bug me and I love to change the color with my mood.*
SITM: *Anything else?*
*JS: *I’m just a fashion loving gal with big dreams and big smiles! I love sharing my Daily Shoe pic via Twitter @sharingmysole and I hope to inspire others to dress to impress and feel good about themselves!
