Hello, hello! Happy Friday! I shared this look a couple weekends ago when the East Coast had a major cold front come through! Y’all showed it so much love on Instagram, I thought I’d feature it here so you can get a better look. I will always love J.Crew’s classic cocoon coat that they’ve brought back for many years. I bought it last year in this beautiful mustard color, which I know isn’t everyones cup of tea, but hey … if that’s you, maybe just focus on the beautiful fit instead 😉 I rediscovered it when I got back from London and I was putting coats back in the coat closet. I had forgotten how good it is! Be on the lookout for it next year in the Fall and pick a color that suits you [ it always comes in lots of fun colors and staple basics! ] and you will have it for YEARS. It’s so perfect. I love how the variations of dark denim with the light and dark grey compliment the rich, bright mustard, as well. I’m still majorly crushing on my new white bag, as well.
Here are a few good ones to choose from if you’re in the market to sport the new trend, as well:
Guess what?? Yesterday, I had an amazing phone call with a new graphic designer / web developing team that I am hiring to completely revamp Sequins & Things. Last year, I redid my site and moved it from Blogger to WordPress so that the mobile site was a little easier for y’all to use. But, honestly, I didn’t want to make any huge changes in terms of design. I knew I wanted to work with this team for this big reboot for almost two years now. It was just a matter of time in terms of when I wanted to take on all that a redesign entails. We’re looking at a Fall launch – hopefully! And cannot WAIT to have a custom site that will have a place for everything that y’all ask about, plus a few other fun features that I can’t wait for! What are some of your favorite features on blogs that you visit?
What are some of your favorite blogs, in general, in terms of design and functionality? Comment below! I have to admit – I don’t read other blogs, like at all – so I’m completely clueless when it comes to giving examples of things I’d like on my site. I just have thoughts so I’d love your insight! We’re in the very beginning stages so this is the perfect time for me to hear your thoughts and opinions, and take a look at the ones you love!
Are y’all up to anything fun this weekend? It’s supposed to rain really bad here this weekend so I’m not sure what I’ll get into but I think it’ll involve organizing my office because I haven’t started organizing all my office supplies into the new closet space. I also rediscovered The Container Store the other day, so things are going to be taken to a whole new level here soon. I am so excited! 🙂
I also have a lot of posts that I need to prep for y’all that’ll go live next week. Getting those done ahead of time will allow me to spend a lot of next week doing one last big search online for furniture and organization items before making final decisions. I really need to be done. I am constantly getting distracted by home decor posts these days and I’m just ready to commit and be done with it all, so that I’m not still waiting for stuff to get here in April, ha!
Anyway, I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet! I hope y’all have a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by! xo.
