Black & White + Pearl Slides

Chicago blogger Bows & Sequins wearing a black & white outfit from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: a flare sleeve Halogen sweater, black Paige jeans, and embellished pearl slides with a Brahmin handbag and Gucci aviators.

There was a day that felt like fall earlier this week and it made me realize just now not ready I am to wind down this summer. Thankfully, the sun is back out and the temperatures are back in the 80’s, but it was a reminder to cherish these summer days over the next month or so! For me, summer is more than just a season of sunshine or a few months of warm days, it’s all about the mindset. Unlike New York, Chicago kind of goes into hibernation in the winter months, which is why the electric summer energy feels so special. Everyone is out and about, making plans after work, squeezing the most out of the weekends, etc. It’s so nice to feel like the city is alive, as compared to the other eight months out of the year.

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it seems like talks have all been fall, fall, fall. I’ve been focusing on things you can wear now and also wear later, but this is the last chilly-weather look I’ll be posting until the temperatures actually cool down in September, or maybe even October! *fingers crossed*

From here on out, it’s all about embracing that summer state of mind! You can hold me to it. xx

I’ve actually paired these velvet loafers with a pair of cutoff jean shorts and a chunky black sweater for a weekend breakfast burrito run!
