Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 5

Bows & Sequins wearing a stylish and easy outfit for traveling: navy striped sweater, white corduroy pants, Gucci gingham loafers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote, and Bric's Bellagio cream spinner suitcase. Comfortable, but chic!

Hello from sunny Palm Springs! Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m in California this weekend for my friend Ashley‘s bachelorette party. I came a day early and stayed at a hotel on Wednesday night and then made my way to the house we rented yesterday evening. We’ve got a house full of 17 girls and it’s been a blast so far. Last night we made pizzas and watched Troop Beverly Hills, which I had shockingly never seen before. Talk about a feel-good, girl-power movie! It came out in 1989 (the year I was born) so I think I must have just missed it growing up. We’re all getting some work done this morning, then heading to lunch, soaking up some sun, and going out for dinner and dancing later tonight! This is my 3rd time in the Palm Springs area and I realized I’ve never shared some of my favorite spots, so be on the lookout for that sometime soon. Be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories for snaps of the weekend!

Here are my favorite finds from this week…

YOU GUYS! The gingham Gucci loafers are back this spring. Check them out in red and black!

I listened to this podcast twice this week… Brené Brown is truly remarkable. I’m working my way through Gifts of Imperfection right now (per the suggestion of my therapist) and I can’t get enough of everything she says and writes.

I loved this read on protecting your time.

Can’t wait to try this recipe!

This article on how to say no is v interesting. I’m eager to put the practice of “I don’t” vs “I can’t” into use!

I think I might have shared this a few weeks ago, but worth sharing it again… How Boredom Can Lead to Brilliant Ideas

If you’re looking for an affordable side table, this gold and faux marble option (under $100!) is 👌🏼

I saw this mini book at a store the other day and I think it’s so cute for the coffee table or your nightstand!

Gigi New York is having their winter sale! Use code winter2018 for free shipping + a free gift with your purchase.

I’m obsessed with this hydrating serum I got last time I was in Paris! (You can find it in the US, too!)
