It's All About Bows

I'm a self-proclaimed bow lover. Some might think they are too juvenile, but I think they are adorable and the more the better.

{Tee: J.Crew Factory (old), Skirt: The Limited (old), Belt: H&M (old) Shoes: Old Navy, Bag: Kate Spade, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21}

I may have mentioned this before, but I've had this pale pink skirt for about 6 years now. When I bought it, it was pleated. Of course, the minute I washed it, the pleats came out and I was way too lazy to iron the pleats back in. It worked out though because I love this skirt the way it is now a lot better and it has clearly stood the test of time.

Now you may remember this bow bag from this post. As the weather warmed, I've only grown to like this bag even more. It pretty much goes with all of my outfits and is such a great way to add some fun to my day.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

That's a lovely warm-weather outfit! And what's not to like about bows??? I think I'm noticing a trend--the more "old" items an outfit has, the better I seem to like it. But I'm not sure yet, it's just a theory at this point. :)

Oh my gosh bows are never juvenile! I love that purse so much I'm going to have to put it on a wish list. I've always loved bows also. I think it stemmed from my cheer days growing up. For prom in high school I had a big bow in the middle of a red Jovani gown. I absolutely loved it!
