What I Wore Last Week

Fashion blogger Bows & Sequins shares daily outfit snaps in Connecticut and Chicago.

Back at it with another What I Wore Last Week! Sharing a few snaps from what I wore while traveling to and from Connecticut last week, a fun party at a beach club, and a few events in Chicago, too. Hope these give you some ideas for your own outfits this week! PS: You can always reference all of my What I Wore Last Week posts here… I tend to rewear a lot of the same pieces over and over again so you can get some ideas for mixing and matching pieces in your closet, too!
