This butterfly skirt from Leah & Pearl is so sweet and feminine; I feel like it can transition easily from work to a night out, depending on the styling. I originally chose to play it safe and pair the skirt with a black sweater but I decided last minute to throw in more color because… well, that’s usually my philosophy! And it’s summer so why not do a fun peachy coral and blue combination? This is my second piece from Leah and Pearl (first one on the blog here) and I am 100% happy with both pieces.
For this week’s Friday Favorites, I have a few fun things to share with you all!
Let’s start with one that puts a smile on my face; this amazing glitter dipped tumbler from Drink Bliss. Drink Bliss is the cutest Etsy shop filled with mason jar tumblers, wine glasses, and coffee mugs with hilarious and heartfelt quotes. If you have something particular in mind, Diana can customize something for you like she did for me here. I told her the quote I wanted, “Always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn. Then always a be unicorn.” and she added a glitter dip in this beautiful aqua I chose. I told her I wanted some purple in it as well and then she created 5 unicorn graphics for me to choose from. Let’s just say that I couldn’t be any happier with the final results! Drink Blissis offering a discount code for my readers so use code ASEQUINLOVEAFFAIR to get 20% off! I think they make the sweetest gifts, or…. #treatyoself. 😉
I wanted these Topshop lace up flats for a while and finally just went for it. I try to be careful with impulse purchases but I really, really love these. The problem is I want them in black too (black lace up flats) and while the price tag may seem reasonable to some, especially considering the Aquazzura christy flats, it’s still expensive for me; especially considering the amount of flats I currently have in my closet! I don’t know if they’ll go on sale and I’m so tempted! But my red ones are pretty nice!
Can we talk about how comfortable this pink maxi dress is? And the fact that it’s only $40?? Yeah, Leah and Pearl is always killing it with their affordable collection of fashion-forward and modest clothes! I’ll be sharing the second piece I got got from them next week (or you can get a sneak-peek on my instagram here). Other gorgeous pieces from their website that I’m currently crushing on are this fun color block skirt and the phantom scuba skirt.
I’ve been eyeing this white eyelet shirt dress for a while and when it went on sale, I grabbed it because I think it’s such a gorgeous dress for summer. I have a similar one from last year in a gorgeous shift form that I wore here and it’s now being sold for under $60 here.
I haven’t worn these shoes in a while on the blog (last seen here and here) so it was about time to share these beauties with you again! Check out the bottom of the soles; the handpainted eiffel towers are just incredible! Taylor Says (and more styles here) makes the coolest shoes with beautiful, hand painted soles that are literally pieces of art.
I saw this cutie literally rolling around on the ground and I had to borrow him for a photo because he was so cute!
One of my readers asked me for splurge-worthy bag options for fall. I stumbled on this amazing Phillip Lim metallic mini pashli and if my budget allowed for it, I’d buy this in a heartbeat! It comes in a larger size too here and I love the rich, jewel tone shade and the metallic finish.
I also wrote another article for Mode, this time sharing a roundup of 8 great looks from Kate Middleton. Check out my story below! (If the link doesn’t work for you, make sure your adblock is disabled or just go to the link here)
