Jewel Tones

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! 🙂

(Blog Birthday Posts #1 & #2)

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!

Get the Look…

Loft Blouse (similar here) | Vince Camuto Faux Fur Vest (similar here & here) | J Brand Jeans | J.Crew Leopard Pumps | Michael Kors Tote | OPI ‘Every Month is Oktoberfest’ | Capwell + Co Necklace (available at their NYC pop-up!) | Capwell + Co Ring

    If you are still getting away with just the vest over your shirt then you are doing well! Here in the greater Toronto area we are hitting the freezing mark the next couple of days… Boo.

    Happy birthday and congrats on all of your achievements!! Love this look and I agree… it’s way too early for snow. We get enough months of winter, just let us hold on to the “warmer” fall weather for just a little longer please!
