Florals + Pleats

Jessica of Bows & Sequins wearing a navy floral Rebecca Taylor blouse, Rachel Roy pleated midi skirt, Kate Spade blush pink glitter pumps, and Celine tortoise aviator sunglasses.

Keeping it short and sweet today! I got so excited seeing your positive feedback on yesterday’s post that I spent majority of yesterday afternoon writing and scheduling the next few posts in the series. (And it’s killing me to wait to hit publish until next week, ahh!) Around 11pm last night, I realized I hadn’t actually written *today’s* post… Whoops!

I’ve been gravitating towards all of the pretty, feminine pieces in my closet the last few weeks! Silky fabrics, floral prints, soft hues, and ladylike silhouettes are always a win in my book. I’ve been packing my calendar with meetings, events, and catch-ups so it’s been fun to have an excuse to dress up a little more often that I normally do during the week! I have a feeling this is going to be my go-to springtime uniform for work-related happenings… A silky blouse, a midi skirt, and a pair of fun shoes! (Only if I’m taking a cab, obvi. Gotta protect that ankle!)

As I was getting dressed, I thought that these earrings (in rose!) would be the perfect complement, but then I remember that I don’t actually own them. (Yet.) 😂 Do you ever do that?! I constantly find myself remembering something perfect I’ve seen online that would make an outfit pop. It’s kind of a problem, tbh. I love the ones I’m wearing, but that rose color just gets me!
