Getting back to this floral skirt. Can we just talk about Instgram’s recent video sharing (Snapchat copying) feature for a second? As someone who does social media for a living, I was a bored by the blatant copy. But have any of you guys tried it? Filters, and emoji use aside, the quality and ease of use is SO MUCH BETTER! If you aren’t following me on Instagram yet, be sure to do so @kimcpavao. If snapchat will forever be your thing, don’t worry, I am still there as well @kp0ssible!
If you are still curious about Instagram stores, be sure to keep reading because I have listed some fun facts below! Alright back to business and this floral skirt. When spring starts to roll around we all get overly excited about floral print. It’s fresh and really represents spring in the best way possible. But does floral print actually ever go out of style? Personally, I am come to realize that it doesn’t. I specifically chose the skirt that I am wearing based off the fact that it has autumn colors. It was the perfect floral skirt to add to my warm weather collection, but allowed me more versatility throughout the coming months.
I decided to round up a few of my seasonally universal floral skirt picks and share them with you, incase you are like me and may
or may not be shopping for your fall wardrobe already:
Instagram Stories 411:
Back to some Instagram stories business. Although they only have 7 filters currently, did you know you can still add snapchat, boomerang or any other recent photo you have taken in the last 24 hours? (It also helps if you have to do double the work with now Instagram stories, and snapchat! – So just save all your recent snaps!) – To upload, swipe down on the screen and choose your videos or photos. You can also choose Hyperlapse content for your stories, as well.
If you are public (like me) and want to hide some stories from your parents or say and ex, you can choose who gets to see your stories and who doesn’t. Go to your profile and tap the sun symbol (iOS) or the three dots (Android) in the top right of the screen. Choose Story Settings from the menu and then tap on Hide My Story From. Select the user from the list and tap Done. Those individuals will still be able to see your posts and profile, but won’t see your story! (Insert sigh of relief).
Don’t want certain people commenting on your story? Go to your profile and tap the sun symbol / or gear looking symbol (iOS) or the three dots (Android) in the top right of the screen. In Story Settings, select an option from the list. You can choose Everyone, which will let everyone comment on your story, People You Follow to let just those you follow comment and Off to prevent anyone from commenting on your story. Just for that extra sense of security!
Now that my nerdy Instagram stories session is over, I hope all of you have a lovely Thursday!
