How To: Shop Instagram Posts

I have received some questions lately on the posts on my Instagram feed. Readers are curious on what they are and how they work.  I posted a tutorial on my Instagram stories today, but figured I would share on the blog as well.  It is actually really easy, and a great way to quickly access where to buy your favorite items from social media posts.
What I personally like about the App, is before the App the best way to get these updates was through email.  Sometimes I would be bombarded with so many emails, that is was hard to sort through them and shop.  With the App, it is so easy to just open the App and scroll through your personalized feed, which includes all the enabled images you have liked on Instagram or any screenshots you have is pretty awesome!
Hope this tutorial helps, and make sure to follow along with me on for more shoppable posts heading into the Holidays!

Step 1: Download the App from the App store.  Quick Link HERE

Step 2: Use Screenshots as an easy way to shop the outfit posts you like!  Side note- if you like a post on Instagram it will automatically show up in your App feed, so depends on your preference towards using screenshots. I personally prefer to like people's posts and then refer to my personalized feed in the App.

Step 3: Once you have taken a screenshot or liked an image on social media, those shoppable images and links are accessible in the App or can be sent by email!

Step 4 (or Step 2):  Follow Chicly Coastal in the App!  With the new instagram settings these days, it can be easy to miss a post.  If you follow your favorite bloggers on the App all of their shoppable posts, even if you missed them on social media, will show up in your feed!

That's it!  Easy, right?  Hope this tutorial was helpful.  Feel free to comment on this post with any questions.  As always Happy Shopping!
