Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

Bows & Sequins wearing a casual work outfit: knit blazer, peplum tee, raw hem skinny jeans, woven leather loafers with a striped crossbody bag.

‘Tis the season for afternoon ice cream trips! Nothing cures that 3 o’clock slump like two scoops in a waffle cone, am I right? I was working at Sawada the week before last and made the executive decision to walk over and try Cone when my productivity was waning.

I mentioned it in a Friday Finds post a couple of weeks ago, but I just picked up this little striped bag and I’m obsessed. It’s the perfect size for weekday or weekend and it even fits my 12″ Macbook! The crossbody strap length is just right and it’s removable, too. Highly recommend! (Nordstrom has a few left at 50% off, FYI! Shop them here.)

These woven leather loafers are also a new addition to my closet that have been on repeat since I opened the box! (They’re currently 40% off!) I really want to buy them in black, too.

The cream color is kind of hard to find, but there are a few sizes left here & here!
