Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 21

Bows & Sequins wearing an Americana Red, White, and Blue outfit for July 4th weekend! A white Old Navy knotted tee, a blue and white J.Crew gingham skirt, a Club Monaco straw hat, a red Ralph Lauren handbag, and Vince Camuto leather espadrille wedges.

Man, oh man! I can’t believe Memorial Day Weekend is already here. While it’s seemed that 2019 has absolutely crawled at different points, May has seemed to fly right on by. But I’m here for it… I couldn’t be more ready for Summertime Chi. There’s truly nowhere better! (I mean maybe summering in Europe or being somewhere by the ocean, but I digress…) The energy in the city from MDW to Labor Day is unlike anywhere else and I just want to soak up all of the rooftop parties, patio hangs, alfresco dining, and walks on the lakefront.

I actually flew out very early on Friday morning for a bachelorette party in Sonoma so it’s sure to be a fun-filled weekend with some of my closest girlfriends. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, too!

Here are this week’s finds…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dress Round-Up: Eliza J Lace Dress

OOOMG. Remember when I found this lace maxi dress last summer, didn’t buy it because #budgeting, and then it sold out in my size?! Well, it’s back in stock this year and I neeeeeeeed to have it! I’ve seriously been thinking about it since last summer and trying to track it down on Poshmark or eBay so I think it’s warranted to buy it, right?!

A jersey maxi dress is my summertime travel go-to outfit. Doesn’t wrinkle, comfortable that it feels like pajamas, still looks chic… It’s perfect for the plane. But this one is cute enough to wear to brunch, weekend walks in the park, etc. And it’s only $88!

How freaking cool is this wicker bag?! In love.

Gingham crossbody, ftw. Really loving this green suede crossbody with the gorgeous leather strap, too!

The color of this Gucci bag is stunning! It comes in a beautiful round shape, too.

I love these natural wood pillar candles!

You know I’m a sucker for a satiny midi skirt and I found two more to love… This pleated version comes in two colors that are a bit unexpected for spring, yet they’re perfect to wear now with fun, bold color combos (burgundy with blush pink, lavender, or coral, and navy with yellow, orange, or chartreuse, etc.) and you’ll get use out of them year round! And this slip-like midi skirt comes in two fun patterns that, again, you can get year round wear out of. I’m loving this style of skirt paired with a tied-up tee shirt, denim jacket, and a fresh pair of white sneakers.

Obsessed with this polka dot party dress!

How good is this black sundress?! Under $100, too!

Still loving these tortoise heart-shaped sunnies!

Going to need this $98 bucket bag!

And I’m really loving these embroidered sequin mules, omg.

An oldie, but a goodie that rings particularly true for me right now: An Update On Anxiety

These olive khaki shorts are adorbs and so perfect for summer. Also loving these sandals that would pair perfectly!

    OMG that lace maxi dress is to die for….definitely get it! Looks gorgeous on you. And by the way, summers in Europe are HOT cause there’s usually no air-conditioning here sooooo I’d rather be stateside hahaha… xx
