SUMMER GINGHAM DRESS

Chicwish Gingham Fit & Flare Dress c/o | Jeffrey Campbell 'Rodillo-Hi' Wedge Sandal | Street Level Reversible Vegan Leather Tote | Kendra Scott 'Skylar Spear' Statement Earrings [identical, smaller size | similar] | Michael Kors 'Runway' Chronograph Watch | Tory Burch Metallic Wrap Bracelet Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet Kendra Scott 'Brenan' Spiked Open Ring with Midi Rings | Gorjana + Griffin Teagan Ring c/o MAC Lip Liner in "Stripdown" MAC Lipstick in "Honey Love" | Celine Sunglasses, available in Nordstrom stores, not online

This fun gingham dress is perfect for a summer cookout, dinner party or Sunday church service! The top part is a little big on me, but the waist fits fine. Again, make sure you pay a little extra for expedited shipping from Chicwish because they ship from overseas.

Y'all might have noticed that I have been wearing the PERFECT SUMMER WEDGES almost everyday since I got them in the mail [finally, only took four months] because, well, I seriously LOVE them. They were a little uncomfortable the first day but, everyday since has been great. I highly recommend them. They come in 3 colors. Also, this tote is also my most recent jam. It's reversible and under $50, AND comes in multiple color combo's. I like the material. It doesn't look or feel cheap. Love that!

I got back from Dallas laaate, late last night, so not only did I missed the Bachelorette, but I've been severely missing my Fish man while I was gone. With that said, I'm excited to pick him up this morning, and kind of take a breather for a bit. From the moment I landed in Dallas, I was on the go. I am an introvert with extroverted tendencies, so I love seeing people and catching up but, after a while, I hit a wall and go silent for a while to re-energize. So, anyway, I'm REALLY excited to do that over the next few days.

I feel like I was on-the-go the entire month of June, and cannot even believe Saturday is the 4th of July already. Before we know it, we'll be ordering Pumpkin Spice Latte's at Starbucks. The older you get, the faster the years go. {I feel super old saying that. Ugh!} But anyway, I hope y'all are having a great start to your week, and that you know how much I appreciate you stopping by this little space of mine over here at Sequins & Things. I sure do love y'all! xo.

P.S. Big changes are coming to S&T soon, and I'd love your input. I've done tons of research on some new stuff coming y'alls way in terms of your experience here on the blog. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE if y'all would spill your guts {in a sweet, constructive way} and let me know what you like and don't like about my blog or style blogs in general, in terms of design? 
  • Do you like a very simple blog design?
  • Do you want it to be easier for you to shop my Instagram looks?
  • Do you want a page that allows you to shop some of my favorite online retailers and recent buys? 
  • Do you like opening a blog to see a fantastic, aesthetically pleasing scrolling banner? Or would you prefer less fluff?
I don't know. Just curious. Would love any feedback! Thanks so much, y'all! Have a great, great day! xo.


With love & sequins,
Haley

BLUE EMBROIDERED TOP

Chicwish Boho Blue Stitch Embroidery Top c/o | J Brand '811' Skinny Stretch Jeans | Topshop Sandals, sold out [most similar] | Tory Burch 'Robinson' Pebbled Leather Crossbody Bag, worn as a clutchMichael Kors 'Runway' Chronograph Watch | Tory Burch Metallic Wrap Bracelet Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet  Kendra Scott 'Parker' Studs in Gold Iridescent Drusy | Kendra Scott 'Brenan' Spiked Open Ring with Midi RingsGorjana + Griffin Teagan Ring c/o MAC Lip Liner in "Stripdown" MAC Lipstick in "Honey Love" | Celine Sunglasses, available in Nordstrom stores, not online

Hi ladies! I flew in to Dallas last Thursday, spent some time in Houston this weekend, and came back yesterday. Before I left for Houston, I meandered around West Village in Dallas. I picked up these cute drusy stud earrings and ring set from Kendra Scott, and I'm kind of obsessed. I've been wearing them every day. They're great basics. I also LOVE this boho-esque top with blue embroidery, a huge summer trend. Chicwish has tons of great boho-inspired tops with embroidery, so definitely give their selection a look. I love that their stuff is super affordable, too! This top is just under $50. Be sure to pay the little extra for expedited shipping, being that it's going to be coming from overseas. It's worth it :) 

I also picked up a new favorite nude lip color, which is what I've been gravitating towards a lot lately. It just goes with everything. I love a bold lip, but sometimes it's just a lot for a day of errands or shopping. So, "Honey Love" by MAC is amazing. Give it a try! I also grabbed "Pink Plaid" and really, really like it. 

I've got some meetings here in Dallas today then I head home tonight! I can't wait to pick up Fishy tomorrow!! xo.


With love & sequins,
Haley

Hi ladies! Happy Friday!

Here is another look from my Rosemary Beach® trip! [Did you catch yesterday's post?] I love this fun, oversized shirtdress! So much that ... I just bought it in blue, ha. I am heading down to Houston today with my best friend, Ashley, to enjoy an Astros game ... Nothin' like a summer MLB game, right?!? ... And the Garth Brooks concert! I'm so excited! It's definitely one of my 'bucket list' items that I'm excited to cross off! 

Whatever you've got goin' on this weekend, I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by! xo.
