Easy Breezy

Chicago blogger Bows & Sequins styling Sam Edelman sandals, a floral maxi dress, and a round wicker bag.

It seems like it’s been about forever and a day since I’ve done a ‘regular’ ol’ outfit post… It almost feels like a throwback! Now that it’s getting warmer, I do plan to shoot some more outfits just like the good ol’ days to showcase some of the new pieces I’ve been adding to my spring and summer wardrobe. After going on Remote Year and living out of a suitcase for four months, and then coming back to Chicago in the dead of winter and not wanting to brave the elements (and not really having anything new to photograph as I hadn’t shopped in months!), I just kind of fell out of the habit for a while. Of course, I do love sharing my everyday outfits in my What I Wore Series, but it’s fun to get some non-mirror-selfies to better show off an outfit here and there!

I can’t say it enough with these sunglasses… I am *obsessed* with them! I get so many compliments when I wear them and they’re less than $30. They honestly look like they should be designer! How they’re not sold out yet is beyond me, as I know a lot of you have bought them already, too.

Back at it again with my favorite slide sandals… I’m calling it now, these will be my most worn shoes of the season! I have this brown color and the white ones, too. They’re super comfy and both colors go with pretty much anything! (Plus, they’re on sale under $40 and look like they should be 2-3x that price!)

    That’s a gorgeous dress! Maxi dresses are perfect for spring, the length is great for warm but not too warm type of weather but it’s still breezy enough to not get too hot. I love the print on the dress as well, we can never go wrong with florals.

    I LOVE this maxi dress. It is so gorgeous! I’m pretty much in maxi dresses all summer long. They are so comfy and make me feel chic – but I honestly just feel like I stepped out in my pajamas haha! I’m also loving these Sam Edelman sandals – super chic!
