A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling so uninspired by my daily sweatpants, the shitty weather in Chicago, and longing for all I had hoped this spring and summer would entail. I haven’t really been shopping lately, both because of not having anywhere to go, as well as having my income drastically reduced these last few months. Especially with moving again this summer, I need to just save what I can. I’m sure a lot of you can relate!
Bows & Sequins started as a style blog, but there’s been next-to-no style content at all in the recent months (since the dead of winter rolled right into quarantine). So I thought it would be fun to start a little series on my Instagram Stories called “What I Wish I Was Wearing.” For the last two weeks, I’ve shared one outfit collage each day, and it’s been such a nice little creative outlet. They definitely do take some time to make, so instead of them disappearing after 24 hours, I ended up creating a separate IG to house them: @styled.by.jrs!
While the collages are mostly meant to be outfit inspiration to spark ideas from your own closet, I know some people are still shopping right now. Without swipe ups, shopping via IG can be a huge pain if you aren’t using LiketoKnow.It, so I thought I’d share the outfits here every two weeks. Especially since a lot of my followers don’t really crossover from the blog to Instagram, and vice versa. So twice a month, you can expect a similar post of outfit ideas and inspiration, all in collage format! Feel free to pin the images to save for later. And if you are wanting to shop, and you want to catch these in realtime before things might sell out, be sure to follow @styled.by.jrs!
