Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 20

Bows & Sequins wearing a navy summer sweater and white eyelet shorts with gingham shoes, Nordstrom sunglasses, and a straw hat.

Happy Friday, friends! I’m down in Gulf Shores, Alabama for the weekend and very excited to be soaking up some much needed sunshine. This was the first winter in… potentially my whole life that I didn’t take any type of warm-weather vacay and man-oh-man, I can feel it. I’ve had my nose to the grindstone non-stop for the last five and a half months since I got back from Remote Year and I am in desperate need of a little break to relax and some Vitamin D.

Here are this week’s finds…

Really, REALLY enjoyed Ed Mylett on Short Story Long!

If you’re in Chicagoland area and need plans tomorrow, one of my favorite Instagrammers is hosting an event! Vienna (@mindfulmft) is a licensed marriage & family therapist out of NYC and her Instagram is all sorts of amazing. I so wish I was in town to attend this event all about relationships!

Another one for my Chicago gals: CLARE V OPENED IN CHICAGO THIS WEEK! On Armitage, right next to the tracks. This is dangerous. I swear I used to buy a new bag (or two) every time I was in LA at one of her stores.

I am *obsessed* with this caning clutch!

LOVINGĀ these tortoise heart-shaped sunglasses! And they’re only $25!

Ahhhh, I love love loveeee these leather mules that McKenzie is wearing!

Loving this pretty raffia tote with beaded handles.

Vineyard Vines for Target launches this weekend!

This printed blue and white dress is beautiful. 💙

And this floral print one, too! Ugh, gimme allllllll the dresses lately.

Don’t miss this sale: Living Proof is currently running a 20% off birthday sale! Perfect time to stock up on their amazing dry shampoo, their Body Builder spray, their Charcoal Detox Shampoo to remove hard water build-up, or any of their anti-humidity products. Oh, and I’ve been dying to try their new Color Care line!

This spring pasta primavera recipe looks DELISH!

A wholeeeeee bunch of my Vineyard Vines pieces from this spring just went on major sale. Here’s what got marked down… This camel pullover hoodie (seen here), this blue lace dress (seen here), this printed maxi (seen here), this eyelet top (seen here), these seersucker pants (seen here & here), these white chino pants (seen here), this pink dress (seen here), this seersucker wrap dress (seen here), this printed wrap dress (seen here), this scalloped top (seen here), this gingham dress (seen here), and all of these fascinators (seen here).

What advice would you give your younger self?

This cane bench is so amazing, especially for the price!

Loved this read on Lauren’s “in between” stage.

I struggle with this soooooo much: How to Take a Compliment

Have you seen this new collection at Express? Here are a few of the pieces I’m loving…

How fun are these beaded hoop earrings? The blush pink and the black and white pairs are my favorites.

Seven new restaurants are coming to Chicago’s Riverwalk!
