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!
