What I Wore Last Week

Chicago fashion blogger Bows & Sequins shares her daily outfits from the week.

Happy Monday, friends! As I mentioned in this weekend’s Friday Finds post, this past week was a busy one. I had two speaking engagements, went bowling with friends, had a casual workday downtown, and went to a girlfriend’s baby shower. Here’s what I wore for all of it!

Chicago personal stylist Jessica Sturdy wearing a cream pointelle sweater with white jeans, a blush leather structured tote, nude suede slingbacks, and goldrim glasses.

Wednesday, March 27th  |  Shot the outfit I *thought* I was going to end up wearing for my speaking engagement on Thursday. Ended up changing a few accessories last minute!

    I love all of these outfits! I need a good leopard coat. If you don’t mind me asking, which width is your Gucci belt? I’ve been looking to get one but not sure which width I want!

      I have the size 80! I talk about it more in this post, but I chose this size because I can wear it at my waist and lower on my hips, too. And the belt width is the same that I link to, 1.5″ (If you check out that post from last winter, I actually ordered the smaller 3/4″ size first and I found it to be way too small with what I wanted to wear the belt with.)
