What I Wore Last Week

Chicago fashion influencer Bows & Sequins shares daily outfit photos on her blog.

She’s baaaaaaaack! I’m so excited to kick off my What I Wore Last Week series again this year now that I’m back in the US and have more than a single suitcase of clothes to wear. I know it was one of your favorites to read this past year and it’s always fun to capture the every day outfits (in the moment) that aren’t necessarily “blog worthy” … Here’s to hoping I get better at remembering to have someone snap a picture before it gets dark out (considering that’s now at 4pm). Happy Monday, friends!

    Would love to know how the 525 America Turtleneck sweater fits??? Is it oversized? I’m 5’2″/117 lbs, and debating between an XS and S….
    Also, do you find it holds up well with repeated washes?
    Thanks!

      GIRL, YES YES YES! My gf and I were just talking about this sweater… She borrowed it from me in Colorado and fell in love with it, too. It’s my favorite sweater in my closet by a landslide. I’ve had it for two years and I wear it *minimum* once a week, usually more. It holds up SO well, as it’s a thick cotton! I have a size Small — I’m 5’5″ (unclear on how much I weigh, but more than you, haha) — it’s oversized so I’d probably go with the XS!

      Ooooh, good to know! I got mine on Tuckernuck back in the day so I need to take advantage of that 20%!

    How are the Indigo Rd. boots holding up for you? I recently moved to Chicago and I’m gearing up for winter, but I’m not exactly ready to pull the plunge on a $300+ pair of winter boots. Thank you!

    You have inspired me to upgrade my luggage! My Away bags arrived Saturday and I just love them! Also invested in an MZ Wallace Metro Tote to use for travel. Think I’ve got things covered!

      Yesssss!! So glad to hear you love your Away bags as much as I do, they really are great. And you can’t go wrong with the MZ Wallace Metro Tote! I’ve had mine for at least five years and it’s still going strong. Happy travels! xoxo
