This little blog turns 3 today! Can you believe it? Time sure does fly. In all actuality though, I really can’t imagine my life without this thing. Bows & Sequins has been around for all of my
adult let’s just say post-college life. It’s outlasted boyfriends, gotten me each and every job since college, introduced me to some of my very best friends, and can take full responsibility for my semi-permanent dark circles. Here’s to many more!

Anyway, back to regularly scheduled programming. Another fall outfit! Speaking of fall, if it friggen snows today in New York… I will NOT be happy. I realize it’s mid-November, but I’m just not ready!
Happy Monday! Don’t you just wish we could squeeze an extra day into the weekend? I finally had a weekend off from work and I did a whole lot of… nothing. Much needed! It’s kind of nice to feel recharged and ready for the week ahead.
This was my outfit for Day 2 of Lucky FABB. (Day 1 here!) I really like how all of the different textures and styles work together… A metallic leather jacket, a rustic plaid shirt, ripped jeans, and glitter pumps!
Just a quick reminder… It’s the last day to win a trip to NYC! Details here.
More details on these XOXO looks here!
I posted about one of my favorite holiday trends yesterday and I’m back with another today. Well, two more I suppose. Leopard & Leather.
We’ve all done it… We’ve all fallen off the “workout wagon,” if you will, at some point or another. The key is to figure out how to get back on track after you’ve lost your routine.
When I fell in love with this elbow patch sweater at J.Crew, I bought it in almost every color. Naturally.
I’ve always exercised that thought process when it comes to buying multiples in differing color ways… When it’s good, it’s good. Might as well have more of a good thing, right?
I love how this sweater is just the right amount of loose. (I’m wearing a Small, btw.) The shape is perfect for layering turtlenecks, chambray shirts, or button-front shirts underneath when the temperature really drops. And the elbow patch is just too perfect!
I finally broke out the faux fur vests! And it was kind of like Christmas. At the end of last season, I couldn’t resist a few sale finds. Some may call me crazy for purchasing furry pieces in May, but I have to disagree. Sure, I realized that I wouldn’t be wearing said vests for many months, but does a fur vest go out of style? That’s what I thought!
I picked up this Vince Camuto faux fur vest at Marshalls and another deep green faux fur vest at Club Monaco. I’m sure the latter will be here on Bows & Sequins very soon!
You guys, I can’t even handle this daylight savings time thing. The sunset was at 4:45 pm yesterday. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that is the AFTERNOON. How is that even possible?! I know I’m going to want to start hibernating soon.
But thankfully for both of us, there is a fun event this Thursday to look forward to! It may be dark outside when it starts, but there will be plenty of shopping, snacks, tunes, and sips at the EXPRESS x NYLON Flatiron Grand Opening Party to help us forget about DST. Kat, Julia, Natalie, and Christina will be there joining in on the fun, too! We’ll be there checking out the newly remodeled store and scooping up a few items at 25% off*! (I built up quite the extensive Express wishlist when I was hosting the Desk to Dinner event at the Madison store a few weeks ago!) Hope to see you there.
Make sure you RSVP to email@example.com by 12 pm on November 7th!
Lately, I’ve been shying away from brights in favor of lots of neutrals. Grays, blacks, greens, and blues have been my go-to’s and I’ve been mixing and layering them all together. Here’s a look I wore this past weekend in New York featuring a whole slew of pieces I’ve gotten at Express recently!
Wow, how is it November already?! I can’t believe how fast these fall days have been going. I was in DC for a few hours today (quick work trip!) and it felt like just yesterday that I was there for Thanksgiving. Where does the time go?! (PS: Here are two more outfits from my trip to DC last fall .. one | two)
