Features & Favorites 6/20/14

Aside from the Portofino shirt, I think Express has found itself a hot seller with one of its shirt designs this year. This Short Sleeve Baroque Lace Tee has been a popular choice on bloggers this year, like Tracy, Carylee, and Noelle.

So far I've only seen in it in white until Carylee (center image above) showed her mint version this week. They've now expanded it to seven different color options, so I'll be curious to see if any of the other colors gain popularity:

All color options available here:

Remember that "blink and you missed it" floral midi skirt and crop top that were also really popular in the spring? Here's a refresher on the crop top as seen on April of The Sweet Escape:

The pieces are almost back but not quite, with a white version of this set for summer:

With a blog name like Sprinkles & Sequins, I would certainly expect some sequins every now and then. Liz didn't disappoint with Express sequin mini skirt for a summer daytime look.

The exact one she's wearing is sold out, but you can always count on Express to have some version of a sequin mini skirt year round. In fact they might even have a reputation for that sort of thing, but a few sequins never hurt anyone:

One of my favorite things to find on the Express website are the glitches, so please make note of the text in the red circle below and giggle along with me.  I'm afraid to write much more about this one for fear of people Googling these words and ending up on my blog!

Thanks for reading today and I hope you get some sunshine in your neck of the woods on the first official day of summer this weekend!

  1. Hahahaha to the glitch! Thanks for the shout out - it really is a great top.
    And great, now I want the lace tee in other colors! I love that Noelle tucked hers in. Great styling option!

  2. OMG that is too funny. The first lace top I love the short sleeves, mine long sleeves one will get no use anytime soon. I love the navy, since I'm off today I might stop by Express. Have a great weekend!


  3. Hahaha love when you point out the glitches! Great picks today! Love the lace top and I like how Carylee put the bandeau underneath it! I of course LOVE the crop top and midi skirt set!

    Have a great weekend Gina!!

  6. Ha ha. It's always surprising when my picture pops up in my feed and it's not my post. :-) I do love this top. I may just have to get one in another color. I have also always wanted a sequin skirt but I think I'll wait on that until the fall.

  13. Wow...I need that floral midi skirt (though no crop top for me LOL!)

  14. Very cute! I like the faux pas and the lace tee is adorable! Are you going to rock the crop top/ midi skirt look? I just ordered one from eshakit & can't wait. (Good call about not writing about the mix up...otherwise you might have wound up with some interesting key word searches like me) :)

  15. Love that baroque lace tee especially in Mint and light Blush colors. Carylee looks so cute in hers. All 3 ladies styled it so well. Liz's Outfit with the sequined mini and hot pink tee was a favorite of mine, too.

    I wrote a very raw post on my blog today. Would love for you to read it. Thanks. =) Enjoy the weekend, Gina!!

  16. Oh man I am glad you love my determination because sometimes I don't even feel I have a thread of it. Wow. Thanks for the encouraging word, Gina and for being here at *FiF* each fun week after week. ♥
